December Newsletter February 11 2014 by Simone Denny
December is a great month to...
Recharge your energy this silly season!
December can be a fun filled month of socialising, Christmas parties and entertaining. It can also be a month where we get pulled in many directions, finishing the working year, trying to fit in Christmas shopping, catching up with loved ones, as well juggling the demands of day to day life. All of these factors can be a drain on our energy. In our house with a new baby in tow we are doing less of socialising than usual, but plenty of juggling.
The combination of a bit more stress, a little less sleep and some overindulging can put more pressure on our immune system, and make us more susceptible to becoming run down and tired. The holiday season is an important time of year to boost your antioxidants and stock up on immunity and energy boosting foods. You can get some ideas here.
This time last year I was dosing up on what I call my 'Silly Season Smoothie' - so I thought I'd start making them again. This smoothie is full of antioxidants and yummy ingredients to fight fatigue and boost you energy (and yes that is basil in that smoothie).
Give the gift of health this year
Gandhi once said 'It is health that is real wealth, not gold and silver'. It is so easy to take our health for granted and only truly appreciate it when we don't have it. A big part of what the Nourishing Hub stands for is preventative health - living our lives in a way that optimises our chances of being happy, healthy humans. Eating the right foods and supplements, using non toxic products, thinking the right thoughts and treating our bodies with complete gratitude.
A friend of mine is giving each one of her family members the gift of health this Christmas. She has ordered each person a Pong Anti-radiation Case for their phones from the Nourishing Hub. I thought this was such a thoughtful gift; this is a gift that keeps on giving, protecting loved ones from potential EMF radiation - particularly important for protecting children and little ones.
Pong Anti-radiation Case for mobile phones and iPads.
If you want to give the gift of health this year but are not sure what to choose, why not give a Nourishing Hub Gift Voucher and let loved ones choose their own healthy treats.

Make the most of our Coconut Magic Christmas Special
I am quite nuts about coconuts, particularly coconut oil - I manage to sneak coconut into all kinds of dishes, raw food, smoothies and even use it on my skin. Most of my desserts use coconut oil or coconut butter and recently I have been adding it to to savory dishes like mashed sweet potato (or kumera) or creamed spinach - just delicious.
If you are fan of coconut oil then you will LOVE Coconut Magic - it really is the cream de la cream of coconut oils. Jenni Madison the founder of Coconut Magic is fanatical about producing high quality organic coconut oil and is a huge advocate of the benefits of coconut oil. Below are some of the benefits of this wonderful nut!
