Hey Everyone. I know most of my posts are music related and videos of me covering songs but another one of my passions is health and wellness. I wanna start incorporating more health and lifestyle related content on my account to share with you guys. Don’t worry I’ll continue posting my music stuff too :) I hope you find this stuff interesting.
I know it is unusual for me to post content like this but I am consumed with this info due to being a health nut who looks for things that boost my vocal health.
Above is my go-to snack when I’m feeling hungry and don’t have much time to make something. It’s @artisanaorganics almond butter with half of a banana and @wedderspoonofficial Manuka honey.
Almonds are a great source of healthy fats which support brain function, digestive health and heart health. Almonds are also great for making you feel full because of their high fat content. They’re also high in vitamin E and other antioxidants which are great for your skin. One of my favorite nut butter brands is @artisanaorganics because all of their products are 100% organic, contain no additives, sugars or oils, and are completely raw.
I prefer to consume raw nut butters vs. roasted ones because they aren’t heated which causes nutritional destruction and less nutritional value due to the high temperatures from the roasting process. Manuka honey is another one of my favorite superfood products. Not only is it great for vocal health, it’s nutritional content is one of the highest out of all the different types of honey and amazing for immunity health. It also contains a considerably high level of enzymes which create antibacterial and anti-viral healing properties.
Another cool aspect of Manuka honey is the UMF measurement. UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor. Essentially, this is just a grading system that measures the antibacterial strength of the Manuka honey.
When buying this type of honey, look for UMF grades of 10+ and above. My favorite brand of Manuka Honey is @wedderspoonofficial because it is raw and unpasteurized which ensures no loss of nutritional value, it is Non-GMO, and contains naturally occurring bee pollen, and the live beneficial enzymes.
