Hi and Welcome back, Beauties!
As I’ve stated in my previous post, it is now officially Winter (not my favorite season)! It’s now the end of the year and of course as the seasons change, we change too! So it’s important to cleanse yourself of toxins or any build up when the season changes, to prevent you from getting the common cold or flu. While on my fast a couple weeks ago, instead of just drinking water and tea, this time I decided to make fruit smoothies with sea moss aka Irish moss. As some of you may know, sea moss has a collective of 92 of 102 minerals that the body is made up of!
So of course, this stuff is amazing! To prepare my sea moss, I Clean it, let it soak for a day then boil it until it becomes a gel and I store it in the fridge. I usually use 5 tablespoons while incorporating it into my smoothies and although sea moss isn’t so tasty, you can barely taste it when it’s mixed into plant based milk, a smoothie or whatever you choose! One thing I realized while having sea moss on my fast was that it gave me a boost of energy! Any time I started to feel weak, I would blend up some fruit along with my sea moss and within minutes I was revived!
Sea moss is known for boosting energy, curing anemia, bettering your skin, helps with digestion problems as well as improving your mental and ect. I could go on and on with the benefits of sea moss, but I rather stick with telling you how it helped benefit me! For as long as I can remember, I always struggled to keep my body warm, now trying sea moss I can see how much warmer my body has become. I’ve also noticed how my skin has become much clearer and I feel like my face has more of a glow to it now. I have had acne problems since I hit puberty and I’m telling you, I’m loving my skin now!
So if you’re having any skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema and or psoriasis, sea moss is the answer for you! Another problem I’ve been experiencing for a long time before converting to being vegan and fasting is constipation! And as you can imagine, constipation sucks! Constipation leaves you feeling bloated, full or causes stomach pain. Worry no more! Sea moss will definitely help aid with digestion, just changing your diet can also help!
Lastly, because of all the bad foods we put into our bodies, it has our mental out of wack! It definitely helps me to think clearer and tames my anxiety as well as it brings my stress levels down! As you all should know, stress is very dangerous to your health, so sea moss would definitely help in this area! If you always find yourself stressed, take some time to yourself and meditate (yes, it really helps)! I hope I’ve been helpful, please check back later for more health and beauty tips!
