If the very thought of seasonal change makes your nose itch and eyes water, you’re not alone. While you can plough through the anti-histamines, decongestants, tablets and sprays or even wear a mask to protect you from days with a high pollen count, there are easier ways to clear out seasonal allergies. And it all starts in one of my favorite places – the gut.

black friday smoothie

We love eating from all colours of the rainbow. The hardest to incorporate is definitely the colour black! There are very few foods that are that deep midnight colour. I can think of black garlic, black rice, eggplant skin, black turtle beans… And then – there’s charcoal! What was traditionally only thought of as fuel for a winter fire has made its way into our diet due to its natural healing properties for your body. When ingested, activated charcoal works to trap toxins & chemicals so they can be flushed from your system. Great known uses of activated charcoal include as a natural teeth whitener, to aid and improve digestion and bloating, emergency toxin removal, anti-aging and to naturally reduce cholesterol. Incorporate charcoal into your diet with our recipe for our BLACK FRIDAY SMOOTHIE!
