Disclaimer: I got the product for free to review, but all opinions are my own. Update March 2017: we reviewed this product in 2016, before becoming vegan, so we’re not sure if it is suitable for vegans When someone contacted me about “dr. do good” which is an in-shower body moisturizer, I was not really convinced, I know other brands have tried before and failed. After a quick look on the website I was quite impressed – natural ingredients, London company, good vibes – I asked if the product is tested on animals and it’s not, so I was more than happy to try itRead More →

If you’re anything like me, you won’t be in the mood to eat anything when you have a cold. Which is a big mistake because our bodies need help with fighting the terrible state they’re in. So if you can only eat or drink a bit, let that bit be these foods right here. Garlic Help fight bacteria with this small, but mighty food. All you need is 3-4 cloves of garlic. Mince them, add a few drops of olive oil, a pinch of salt and a bit of water. This will make a great dip or sauce for your food. And because you’re sick,Read More →

We knew that drinks having ginger as their main ingredient are associated with good health, but we didn’t fancy ginger, in particular, so we never used it for anything else other than gingerbread cookies :). We are pretty conservative with foods. Not that we don’t try new ones, but strong spices must be analyzed in detail before liking or hating them, regardless of their health benefits. Eating a vegan┬ádiet made us more open to trying new foods, but in general, we remain sceptical by default.

We know that being healthy is more than exercising 3-4 times a week and being careful about not eating too much sugar. It’s also the little things that you do every day. We made a list of *our* little things. If you have any other ideas or tips, please, let’s make the list bigger. Physical Health Use natural products. From your toothpaste, deodorant, shower gel to beauty products. The industry has evolved enough for us to get what we need without the added chemicals. The brands that we’re using all the time are Jason, AloeDent (which is a fluoride-free toothpaste), Lush (I can’t think aboutRead More →

We just did and never looked back :). That’s the short version. Truth is that it was a good combination of lucky shots later proved as very good tricks, plus a really good dose of willpower. We still consider it one of the best things we’ve ever done for ourselves and we hope quitting at that moment in life was enough to stop any long term damage to our bodies. First of all, we knew the moment will come months before. We planned we’re not going to linger for too long into smoking so that we’re as clean as possible when a child would popRead More →

Probably many weren’t too attracted by chemistry lessons at school, but since what happens in our bodies continuously is pure chemistry, then some base knowledge should be required before reading articles about vitamins, antioxidants and free radicals While oxygen is a life sustaining chemical in general, it also causes oxidising of cells as a regular biochemical reaction (1-2% of the cells are damaged overall in the process). This oxidising is causing cell damage, which can trigger cancer and other degenerative diseases, but more importantly the damaged cells produce a waste formed of their freed molecules that have unpaired electrons. These molecules are called free radicalsRead More →

Going to various places around the world, made it clear to us that each region has a specific set of oils handier than others, so there aren’t really rules that apply everywhere. There’s definitely the economic point of view, some oils cost differently around different parts of the world. There is one thing we don’t do anymore and that is deep frying. This doesn’t mean you should’t do it at all, but try to minimise it to as less as possible. And by that I mean monthly. Or even less than that :). But, you see, if you do own an oil with a highRead More →
