Intolerant Foodie; Coconut Drinks

cocogisele

Unfortunately coconut water is not the magic elixer for a Giselle body, but it does bring great health benefits and contains no sugar or lactose, which is perfect for us food intolerant foodies. Drink it on hot Summer days, as it keeps the blood sugar, electrolytes, minerals and hydration levels in your body sky high.

To keep the morning-caffeine and evening-alcohol levels just as high, I found two yummy recipes for a coconut coffee shake and coconut mojitos.
Speaking of coconuts, do you have a sunburn after a lazy beach day? Forget expensive aftersun creams and treat your skin to virgin coconut oil to keep it soft and hydrated. Let’s go coconuts this Summer!

Please note that intolerances may vary, always adjust recipes to your personal needs.

Hello Summer; Beach Essentials

katytunic

Summer has started, and hopefully you will spend a lot of time with your feet in the sand. It’s a simple list that everybody knows, but just in case here are my six beach essentials, besides your bikini offcourse.

A white beach tunic, cool sunnies, a large beach bag, a quick-dry hammam towel, Havaianas, – since they are the coolest and last for ages – and finally loads of sunscreen.

Now there is a lot to be said about sunscreen, and ever since I’ve been diagnosed with fructose intolerance, cremes are giving me outbreaks, red spots or rashes. So I’ve tried to find a sunscreen which doesn’t contain alcohol, parabens, fruits or perfume and came up with La Roche Posay, which is especially developed for – food intolerance – sensitive skin. The Anthelios sunscreen range goes from SPF30 to SPF50 and is only available at your local apothecary.
