Yoga Poses: Headache Relief

Yoga Poses For Headache Relief

I had a headache the other day and found this lil' golden nugget!  It actually works (or maybe it's because blood was rushing to my head?)  Either way, before you reach for the Advil, check this out!

The New Food Pyramid

This is Dr. Weils idea of the food pyramid.  It sure is different from the version I grew up on!

Green Tea Cream Puff

Green Tea is a very healthy drink… does this mean green tea cream puffs are healthy too? Who cares! We can cheat every now and then right?! #foodporn
1 Package of Cream Puff Shells
1 Package of Vanilla Custard
1 Teaspoon Green Tea Powder (Matcha)
2 Teaspoon Water
Get the custard ready according to the packaged instructions.
In a bowl, mix the green tea power with water until the powder dissolves.  Then add about a tablespoon of the custard and mix until combined
Add the green tea mixture into the rest of the custard and mix until combined
Put the custard mix in a pastry bag
Pipe custard into the puff shells until it’s filled (starts pushing back out)

Lightly dust each cream puff with some green tea powder as garnish!

Migraine Reliever Juice Recipe

We all know the benifits of juicing, but did you know that you can also relieve your migraine headaches with a simple juice?!  I found this one out by using the Juice Suggester (Click Here) which is an tool where you input items you have in your fridge and the software gives you recipes that you can juice! How handy is that?! No more having to buy exact quantities of veggies and fruits based on the juices you want for the week!  Just buy a random assortment of veggies and fruits, put in the fridge and input in the software and it will pull up a TON on recipes you can make!  It's quick and easy and I think they even offer a trial.  So make sure you take a look at the Juice Suggester.  I found this one on it and found out that it actually cures migraines, here's all you'll need:

1/2 Pineapple
4 Kale Leaves
1 Stick Celery
1/2 Cucumber
1/4 Lemon
1/2 Inch Ginger Root
