Sweetness Of The Day .. Rude Health

I love when a company does it right and I also love a Dairy Free Milk Alternative .. in fact I think I have tried every brand under the sun ..Ii dont think actually I know , I carry rice milk in my bag at all times .YES I AM THAT LAME!.

So its pretty important when I find a brand that does a delicious one .. thats organic, with few ingredients and kind of funny!

come on rude boyyyyyy!

yes it exists .. I recently came across Rude health ( a health food company noted for its cereals and granola) they’ve branched out into milk alternative drinks . and they are great . good for the earth,body and mind . most notably they are one of the only almond milk brands that doesn’t contain CARRAGEENAN an additive that has shown to be cancer causing (WTF ! I KNOW ) along with¬†gastrointestinal issues .. its best just avoided (CLICK HERE FOR FULL INFO) .

As for the rice milk , its the only brand i’ve come across in the UK that uses Brown Rice, so you’re getting a wholegrain .. a WHOLE FOOD !! which is lower Gi (sugary basically) than white rice and more nutritious ! it also means it is broken down by the body easier . can I get a WHOOP WHOOP !

rudehealth

ABOVE IMAGE: despite the brand name they are actually incredibly polite .. besides potty mouth Brown Rice Milk

not only does it not have any baddy additives, its also got an ingredients list that is so short ! so Rude health in perfect British form does exactly what its says on the tin .

Anyway point is its British , Environmentally friendly, healthy, funny, and far outshines all of the other million long ingredient milk alternatives .

I make my Golden Milk with it

Click on the site , they also have an amazing recipe section .. which is helpful for any dairy free peeps no matter where you are !

Unicorn Elixir … I Mean Dairy-Free Golden Milk

Golden Milk …¬†
it sounds delicious right ?! am i right ?!? 
Initially upon learning of this Elixir I assumed it was the MILK OF UNICORNS (naturally).. because you know that sh*t will give you super powers .. 
Nay (see what i did there?!) it is in fact an Old Ayurvedic Recipe used as an anti-inflammatory “Beauty Tonic” -Hello! and overall healthful drink .¬†
on a scientific note the Golden Ingredient РThe PUN QUEEN IS BACK!! sorry anyway the main ingredient TURMERIC has recently come to the forefront of western health because of its many benefits 
Image
 
Including But Not Limited To: 
 
-dementia prevention
-cancer prevention 
-natural anti-inflammatory
-fighting colds / flu’s¬†
Рassisting in insulin stability (helpful for diabetics) 
-stimulates gallbladder Рin turn aids digestion and weight loss 
Рnatural liver detox 
 
so its a good’n¬†
But the Original Recipe from Ayurveda contains Dairy , which would have been fine because of the purity and freshness of milk back in the day (Imagining an old lady shaking her walking stick!?!?) but not so much now
 
so i’ve devised the dairy free alternative ..¬†
 
You’re welcome¬†
 
+Yogi’s take note , because it lubricates the joints its great before classes to aid flexibility¬†
 
RECIPE 
 
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (less if fresh root) 

1 cup milk substitute (rice , almond, oat whatever go crazy!) 

1/3 cup water 

1-2 Tbsp. coconut oil (optional but helpful for the flu-ey people because its of antibacterial properties)

raw honey/stevia/maple syrup to taste

ALSO PLAY AROUND WITH THE AMOUNTS OF TURMERIC and sweetness.. when you hit that perfect personal preference this is friggin delicious 

Boil water and turmeric in small saucepan over medium-high heat for 8 minutes (the turmeric must be fully cooked if not powdered ). Meanwhile, bring the milk and coconut oil to boiling point in a separate pan and remove from heat. Combine the two mixtures and add sweetness of your choice .

22 years old she’s¬† travelled the world from Singapore to Milan modelling and lived a hectic schedule of shows and on-location shoots.

but all that wasn’t enough , she instead decided to add businesswoman to her achievements.. a healthy one at that ¬†joining the YOR health group Yorhealth.com¬†

a high quality vitamin/ supplement all round health brand , with 30 years backed research …

we asked her some questions about health and wellbeing

sum up your nutrition and health values in 5 words?

Clean, simple, natural, easy, holistic

whats your healthy little secret?

Digestive enzymes with every meal !
Skin brushing.

favourite recipe?
I love making smoothies – banana, coconut water. Natural peanut butter, almond milk, YOR super greens and maybe some chia seeds with nutmeg. Could have this every day.

how does what you put into your body effect your whole being?

You are what you eat and what you absorb. I think digestive health is hugely under appreciated. Your immune system is intertwined with your digestive system so poor digestion often is a trigger for disease. Take care if your tummy and you’ll thank yourself later.

If I opened your fridge now , what would you be most proud of and what would you be most embarrassed by?

Hmmm most proud of my coconut water probably… And my huge array of tropical fruits!
Most embarrassed by the asian sweets in there that I’ve collected and never eaten … Probably going off. Oh I sometimes have kimchi in the fridge, which is fermented Korean cabbage… That’s a bit embarrassing .

best advice you have ever been given?
Tough one. I have some quotes that I hold really close to me…
“If a small thing has the power to make you angry, what does that say about your size”
John Demartini also said
Life is worthwhile if you learn, if you try (and try again), if you stay, and if you care. Care for the day, the people, the enterprise and yourself – become all you can become
I keep that one in my phone

beauty go-tos (products, regimes everything )

Palmers cocoa butter or any anti-stretch mark and smoothing cream, dental floss – don’t neglect your gums!, pumice stone for your feet, skin brush for circulation… I drink ALOT of tea too – dandelion is great, burdock root tea helps circulation too (mine is terrible), and ginger and peppermint for post-meals
