The cashew is a beloved snacking nut that can be used in many different ways. Wait a second, though; we can’t go on without clarifying one thing. Cashews are actually seeds harvested from cashew trees, which are native to northeastern Brazil. They grow inside a shell (nut), but cannot be distributed in the shell because of an inedible fluid that grows inside it. With the growth in popularity, cashew trees are now grown in many tropical climates.

 

Fun Fact: The largest cashew tree in the world is located in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, and covers about 81,000 square feet!

 

Cashews are great sources of protein and energy, and they actually cause fewer allergic reactions than other nuts. They are rich in manganese, copper, magnesium, and phosphorus, all of which are essential trace minerals.

 

Fun Fact: The cashew tree has a fruit called the cashew apple. A lot of people in Latin American countries make a drink from this fruit.

 

To help you celebrate National Cashew Day, we have a few awesome recipes for you to try. They are super easy to make, but you’ll need a good blender or a food processor.

Starting your day with a smoothie bowl is a great idea for the day after Thanksgiving. Eating leftover dessert only packs on more carbs and added sugars, which are not conducive to your health. Get back on track with this smoothie bowl!

The holiday season has arrived and stress levels seem to skyrocket during this time of year. With holiday parties, presents, coordinating dinners, and family gatherings to worry about, the last thing you need to worry about is sleeping. Sleep is an integral part of keeping the body healthy, especially during the holidays.

 

What Is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that can affect your ability to fall asleep, get adequate or quality sleep, or remain asleep. Insomnia can take a toll on your life, making you feel un-refreshed when you wake. Lack of sleep or poor sleep can decrease energy levels, affect moods, and take a toll on your overall health.

 

What Causes Insomnia?

Insomnia can be caused by several psychological or physical factors, but there is usually an underlying condition that is the primary cause of insomnia. Recently, however, insomnia has been linked to the brain’s inability to go to sleep, meaning that it can’t transition from the sleep cycle to its wake cycle. Insomnia can be a result of too much wake cycle or too much sleep cycle. Other causes are listed below.

  • Nasal/Sinus Allergies
  • Stress, Anxiety, or Depression
  • Endocrine Problems (such as Hyperthyroidism)
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Medications (certain prescription drugs can disrupt the sleep cycle)
  • Eating Late at Night
  • Poor Sleep Habits
  • Hormonal Changes

 

Natural Remedies

Exercise:
Exercise has been known to assist insomniacs with better sleep. Because exercise increases endorphin production, it can combat feelings of depression, stress, or anxiety, all of which can inhibit proper sleep. Some say that exercising at night can prevent sleep because the adrenaline takes too long to wear off, so it is believed that exercising in the morning or afternoon is optimal.

 

Avoid Alcohol:

If you are a woman with insomnia, it is best to avoid drinking alcohol at night because it can interrupt sleep. This can also happen to men, but there’s a higher percentage of women who wake up throughout the night when they drink alcohol before bed. Additionally, alcohol has been known to rob women of REM, or deeper stages of sleep.

 

Try Aromatherapy:

Aromatherapy is a great alternative to help with better sleep. Lavender, specifically, has been known to aid sleep. You can obtain lavender essential oil and put it in an air purifier before bed to promote a peaceful environment to sleep in. You can also make a lavender spray and spritz it on your pillow before bed.

 

Meditate:

Meditation has incredible calming effects and is a beneficial way to reduce stress. Focus on your breath to help you reach a deep state of relaxation. You can also practice yoga and the breathing exercises that go along with it. The non-strenuous exercise can help promote healthier sleep patterns as it rids the body of stress.

 

Avoid Screens Before Bed:

Stay away from screens before bed. The wavelengths produced by smartphones or other electronics with screens inhibit the production of melatonin, which is the hormone that makes you sleepy.

 

Valerian Root:

Valerian root is one of the most common sleep remedies for insomnia. You can make valerian root tea, which can help you fall asleep more quickly and promote overall better sleep. It is best to continually incorporate valerian root into your daily diet because the effects are better over longer periods of time.

We have a few recipes below to inspire you!

 

Quick And Easy Thanksgiving Slaw:

Easy DIY Bath Bomb Recipe To Relieve Muscle Painhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/easy-diy-bath-bomb-recipe-to-relieve-muscle-pain/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/easy-diy-bath-bomb-recipe-to-relieve-muscle-pain/#comments Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:15:25 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=73862 Not only does this bath bomb help relieve muscle pain, but it also is a great gift to give this holiday season.

Bath bombs are fun and they make your bath extra comfortable. They are fizzy, colorful, and typically help to moisturize and soothe your skin. This all sounds amazing and wonderful for you body, but there is a catch. Most of these bath bombs contain toxic dyes and fragrances that can be detrimental to your health. On a more positive note, we found a great homemade bath bomb recipe, and you can even give them as gifts this holiday season.

 

Before you gather ingredients, you need to purchase some bath bomb molds, which can be purchased online. If you can’t find specific bath bomb molds, you can also use silicone ice or cookie trays to make fun shapes. You can even use muffin tins!

 

The ingredients in this bath bomb recipe work to naturally soothe itchy or dry skin, and can even be beneficial in relieving muscle pain. We recommend making this mixture in bulk because this ingredient list only makes about two big bath bombs. The amount you get out of one batch will also depend on the size of the bath bombs. Good luck and let us know how they turned out.

 

Tools:

  • Spray bottle filled with filtered water
  • Medium glass bowl
  • 2 metal/silicone bath bomb molds (or molds of your choice)

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup baking soda
  • 1/3 cup Epsom salt
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar (for the fizz effect)
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint essential oil
  • ½ teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped (or other herb of your choice, like lavender)

Instructions:

  • Combine the baking soda, Epsom salt, cream of tartar, and chopped rosemary in a medium glass bowl. Mix well and then stir in the coconut oil and peppermint essential oil.
  • As you mix the ingredients, spritz the mixture with the water in the spray bottle. The mixture should be crumbly, but should hold form when you squeeze it.
  • Scoop the mixture into the molds of your choice. Firmly press the mixture into the molds. If you are using bomb molds, overfill each side before putting them together. Place your molds in a cool, dry place to set for about 4 hours. If your mold has a detailed shape, let the mixture set for at least 24 hours.
  • Loosen your bath bombs from the molds and use when ready.

5 Easy Ways To Avoid Gaining Weight At Thanksgivinghttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-easy-ways-to-avoid-gaining-weight-at-thanksgiving/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-easy-ways-to-avoid-gaining-weight-at-thanksgiving/#comments Mon, 20 Nov 2017 12:00:54 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=73792 How do you stop yourself from gaining weight on Thanksgiving? Well, we have the answers and anyone can do them. Check them out!

People eat on Thanksgiving; it’s just what they do. Some people only eat until they are slightly full, while others eat until they can’t move. Overeating on Thanksgiving can be attributed to two causes: 1) People use the holidays as an excuse to eat more than they ever do the rest of the year 2) People stress eat because dealing with family and making sure everything goes according to plan can be a lot to handle.

 

What a lot of people don’t realize is that Thanksgiving is just the tip of the iceberg. The Thanksgiving meal creates a snowball effect of bad eating habits for the rest of the holiday season. Then a lot of people rely on New Year’s resolutions to lose the weight that they put on during the holidays. The reality is that most people don’t fulfill their New Year’s resolutions and the weight stays with them.

 

This year, let’s try to take a few actions during Thanksgiving to help you avoid holiday weight gain.

 

Walk Around And Talk To People:

Thanksgiving is a celebration of being together with people you care about. You may only see some of these people once or twice a year, so make the most of it. Rather than stuffing your face every waking second of dinner, walk around and catch up with family. Keeping yourself occupied will distract you from eating too much.

 

Plan A Post-Meal Walk:

If you have a dog, it makes it that much easier to go for a short walk after Thanksgiving. After you finish eating, make an announcement about your walk. Some of your friends or family will be inclined to join you. A quick 20-minute walk will help to improve the digestive process and speed up your metabolism.

 

Help With The Clean Up:

If you sit around while others are cleaning up, you will most likely go for another round of food or help yourself to more dessert. You may even just walk around and pick at random dishes, which is not conducive to your health. Helping with the cleanup process is not only a nice thing to do, it is also a great way to stop eating and burn calories. Scrubbing dishes is going to be the new workout, just watch.

 

Stop Eating When You Are Full:

This is an obvious tip, but it is necessary. The meal is not over when you hate yourself. The meal is over when you feel full. Think of Thanksgiving as any other day. The more you eat, the more you set yourself back. Don’t overdo it!

 

Plan A Workout Date The Next Morning:

We know that most people love to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but you should schedule a fitness date. Not only will working out help you feel less bloated, but it will also help to boost your energy levels. Making plans with a family member or friend is a great way to keep you committed to the plan. You don’t have to go to a gym. A walking date, at-home workout, or bike ride can be beneficial for your health.

The Best Sides To Bring To Thanksgivinghttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-sides-to-bring-to-thanksgiving/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-sides-to-bring-to-thanksgiving/#comments Sat, 18 Nov 2017 00:00:15 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=73789 Thanksgiving is all about the sides. Bring some love and home cooking to the table when you make these 5 amazing, healthy side dishes.

Some people think that Thanksgiving is only about the turkey, but this holiday is truly all about the sides. Sides comprise the majority of a Thanksgiving feast. Some sides get more love than others because you just can’t seem to get enough of them. What are you bringing to your Thanksgiving gathering this year? If you don’t know we have some killer sides that you can make. Your side dish might even be the life of the party.

 

Most Thanksgiving sides are loaded with fats, unhealthy carbs, and tons of dairy products. A lot of people will argue that those ingredients are what make the dishes taste good. Those ingredients are also the primary cause of weight gain during the holiday season. These dishes, which cause weight gain and impair the digestive system, will more than likely adorn the Thanksgiving table you sit at. You can, however, change the game by making some of our favorite sides. They are truly fantastic.

 

The Best Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole:

Take a hike, people!

Is it a coincidence that National Take A Hike Day is the week before you indulge in a Thanksgiving feast? We think not! Hiking can burn up to 400-550 calories per hour, which means hiking is a great way to lose some excess weight before your holiday temptations overtake all your senses.

 

Did you know that there are more than 50,0000 miles of hiking trails across the 50 states? That means that there isn’t a shortage of hiking trails. In fact, most people schedule group walks or hikes on National Take A Hike Day. You might even decide to schedule your own hike this weekend! You don’t have to do a ten-mile trek in and out of valleys; rather, you can walk around your neighborhood, ascend your local hill, or find a hiking trail near you. Just make sure to bring water to stay hydrated.

 

Exercise Is Easier Outside:

According to recent studies, the green color of grass, trees, or other plants in nature makes exercising easier. The study revealed that people who exercised outdoors experienced fewer mood disturbances, and they had the desire to return for more workouts, as opposed to people who worked out in the gym.

 

Nature Reduces Stress:

Spending time exploring the outdoors has been proven to help lower stress levels. Looking at nature makes you relax and you seem to forget about whatever is causing your stress. Just take a look at this picture of nature below and tell us that you don’t feel a little relieved. Don’t believe us, try out our Pine Forest Bath Drops. The natural pine scent may help to lower depression and anxiety.

Boost Your Brain:

When you go for a hike, put down your phone for a few minutes and absorb nature with your eyes. You actually have to pay more attention when outdoors, so that you don’t injure yourself. Studies have actually shown that taking a hike can increase creativity and influence novelty. Additionally, the fresh air can boost your brain.
