Water kefir is an amazing way of adding more probiotics without paying for expensive supplements. I already shared a post on how to make water kefir and where to get the grains from in the United Arab Emirates. In the following post I will talk about the most frequently asked questions on how to keep water kefir grains healthy.
One of my favourite breakfasts are chia puddings, it is almost impossible to get bored of them as there are so many different variations. Chia seeds are also a known superfood, the seeds are filled with electrolytes, amino acids, B-vitamins, vitamin C, D, E, K, folic acid and inositol. The seeds also contain 14 minerals such as magnesium, iron and iodine.
My favourite supermarket in Abu Dhabi is Mawasim, located in the Mushrif area. I have been a huge fan from the beginning and they are slowly getting more and more products. For everyone who loves organic fruits and vegetables as much as me and is looking for affordable staples this is the right place to go to. I love supporting small local businesses that believe in the same things I do: affordable organic foods, that are good for the planet and for us.
Although Urth has only opened recently it is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai. I am in love with their concept, interior and food. The fully pescetarian restaurant offers lots of plant-based options including healthy raw desserts.
I love natural and affordable methods that have a positive impact on my health. Oil pulling is such a simple method that has so many great benefits, it kills bacteria and removes other harmful organisms from the mouth. Although oil pulling has only become more popular in the past years, it is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that has been done for thousands of years. While it is not only beneficial for oral health, it can also relieve migraines, help with hormone imbalances, reduce inflammation and detoxify the body of heavy metals.
I love natural products that I can easily add to my daily routines. Diatomaceous earth or kiselgur is a not very well known superfood made of fossil remains called diatoms (marine phytoplankton). It is a white powder that has the amazing ability to help the body to increase the absorption of calcium.
Basiligo is a food delivery service in Abu Dhabi that offers healthy food at affordable prices. All of the dishes are made from scratch with different options for everyone: dairy free, gluten free, low carb, low cholesterol, nut free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian and weqaya. I am especially excited about all their plant-based options. It is possible to place an order that will arrive within 60-90 minutes or to order meals in advance for the week.
