We all go through moments when we feel lazy, unconfident, unsuccessful, fatigued, depressed, anxious, frustrated, emotional, burnt out, etc. But what if there was a way to overcome these feelings free of addictive tendencies, pharmaceuticals, or therapy so that we could get back to our awesome, motivated, rockin' selves?
We have all heard about the benefits of eating the rainbow, right? well, this philosophy based on ayurveda, takes it to another level. It's all about eating foods of certain colours that help to realign us emotionally. If you are into chakras, you will understand even more how certain colors encourage healing within your body.
Here's how it works:
Red for energy (root chakra) - if you are feeling run down, fatigued, burnt out, lazy or lethargic, red foods such as tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries and beets will help to boost your energy levels and body temperature.
Orange for confidence &amp; self-worth (creativity chakra) - if you are low on confidence, doubting yourself or feeling unworthy of love, get yourself some oranges and do it fast! things like mandarins, mangoes, carrots, squash, pumpkin and yams will all make a big impact on your feelings.
Yellow for joy (solar plexus chakra) - if you are feeling depressed, sad or emotional, hook yourself up with some bananas, sweet corn on the cob, some fresh pineapple or some yellow peppers and watch how your mood changes. Yellow is a natural mood enhancer, so skip the prozac or the bottle of red and make yourself something bright!
Green for rejuvenation (heart chakra) - feeling low on vital energy? are you stressed? overworked? experiencing adrenal fatigue, acidity or toxicity? then green is the color for you! throw your favorite organic greens in to a juicer or make a gigantic salad and feel what happens to your feelings of stress. Likely they will melt away due to the live enzymes, oxygen and chlorophyll.
Blue/black for calming (throat chakra) - experiencing anxiety? enjoy a bowl of blueberries or blackberries. Blue and black foods help to tonify the kidneys and help to elicit honest communication.
Violet for peace (third-eye chakra) - these foods will help to calm your energy and bring you peace if you are feeling frustrated, angry or unable to forgive. Foods like eggplant, purple kale, concord grapes, purple carrots etc, will help to bring you peace and calm! whip up a fresh smoothie with your favorite purple foods!
White for strength (crown chakra) - things like mushrooms, garlic, ginger, onion, lychee, coconut and other tropical fruits help to give you strength and power. If you are feeling defeated or down on yourself then enjoy some white foods and experience a surge in your own inner strength.

Best and Worst Drinks for Weight:
Many of us watch what we eat but not what we drink when on a diet. Choosing the right drinks can tweak your metabolism, curb your appetite, and help cut calories. Which drinks are spoilers and which are helpers on the path to weight loss?
Every time you chug a bottle of soda, you get hundreds of empty calories. Some studies show a short-term benefit. Others find diet soda drinkers gain weight. If you eat or drink more calories than you burn, just switching to diet soda may not do the trick.
Juice can have as many calories as soda, but it has more nutrients. This presents a dilemma: you want the vitamins and antioxidants without all the extra sugar. Look for 100% fruit juice. Steer clear of juice drinks that have added sweeteners. Check the nutrition label for the percentage of real juice.
Vegetable juice is as nutritious as fruit juice, with about half the calories but a lot more sodium. One cup of tomato juice has 41 calories, compared to 122 calories for orange juice. Choosing juice with pulp provides some fiber, too, which may help control hunger.
Blend a banana, strawberries, and blueberries into a frothy smoothie, and you've got a delicious drink. Make your own, so you can control the ingredients: skim milk (or an alternative, like almond milk) and fresh or frozen fruit are all you need. Restaurant smoothies may include ice cream, honey, or other sweeteners that boost the calorie count sky-high.
Most sports and energy drinks are calorie bombs like soda. They may have more added nutrients, but you can find the same vitamins and minerals in low-calorie foods. When you're working on weight loss, stay hydrated with water rather than sports drinks, unless you need the extra nutrients because you're exercising hard and sweating a lot.
When you need a shot of caffeine, coffee is a better choice than soda or energy drinks. Black coffee is calorie-free and rich in antioxidants, improve mood and concentration, and may also lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.
Green tea is an excellent choice when you're looking for a little boost. Not only is it calorie-free -- some research suggests green tea extract may stimulate weight loss. It's not clear exactly how that works, but caffeine and micronutrients called catechins may each play a role. The benefit appears to last only a few hours, so it may help to drink green tea at least twice a day.
Eating calcium-rich foods may do a body good, and it may help you lose weight. Some research shows that drinking higher amounts of milk or eating other dairy foods can help with weight loss. For the best all-around benefits, stick to skim or low-fat.
Replacing carbonated soft drinks with water will cut hundreds of calories per day. Drinking two glasses of water before a meal may also help you feel full faster, so you don't eat as much. And drinking enough water may have a positive effect on your metabolism. type diabetes
Vitamin b12 deficiencies may happen when you aren't getting the right nutrients in your diet when your body can't absorb nutrients properly, and when you have various other problems of the digestive system.
Vitamin b12 is a critical nutrient that helps your body make healthy red blood cells. If you have a chronic lack of b12, your body can't make a number of red blood cells that it needs, which can lead to anemia.
Animal products like meat, poultry, and seafood and dairy foods like milk, eggs, yogurt, and cheese are the best sources of vitamin b12. Honey, vegetables, and fruits are not really sources of vitamin b12, which is why people who follow a vegan diet may not get enough of it. If you're a vegan, think about eating a breakfast cereal fortified with b12. You can also take a b12 supplement, which is recommended for pregnant and nursing mothers who are vegans or even strict vegetarians.
Since most b12 in our diets comes from animal products, vegans are at risk for b12 deficiency. Crohn's and celiac disease, weight loss surgery, and chronic alcoholism can all interfere with a person's ability to absorb enough of the nutrients they need. Seniors have more problems with nutrient absorption and malnutrition as well.
Some diabetes, antibiotics, seizure, antacids, drugs can interfere with your body's ability to break down vitamin b12 from food.

Foods for eye health
Carrots really are good for your eyes. So are spinach, nuts, oranges, beef, fish, whole grains, and many other foods in a healthy diet. Look for foods with antioxidants such as omega-3 fatty acids; vitamins c, e, and beta-carotene; as well as zinc, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Research shows those nutrients may make age-related macular degeneration less likely.
