MONACO BEAUTY BREAKFAST
Hey beauty lovers! Start the day with a big smile and a protein, good Omega 3 fat & chlorophyll rich breakfast! Seared tuna salad is super easy to make in 7 mins (recipe below) and sets your skin, endocrine system (hormones) and energy levels up for the day.
For anyone in doubt (..."fish for breakfast, euuuu") here are a couple of cool reasons to make the switch:
- According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people who eat a high-protein breakfast feel fuller and more satisfied throughout the day, they snack less and above all eat significantly less junk food.
- This could be linked to the fact that a high-protein meal reduces the production of the appetite hormone Ghrelin, which stimulates hunger.
- Another study found that people who eat breakfast, and in particular a high-protein breakfast, consume fewer calories throughout the day.
- Including abundant healthy fat (fatty fish, grassfed livestock, organic eggs, coconut oil, avocados, raw nuts) with breakfast kickstarts your hormones, as hormones are transported around our body by cholesterol, best made from animal fat.
- As hormones (testosterone, cortisol, thyroid serotonin etc) regulate every single body function, keeping them at optimum levels is simply good sense - and is a very effective method to help stay young & gorgeous.
SEARED TUNA SALAD
1 large fresh tuna steak
Organic, cold-pressed coconut oil
1/2 a fresh lime
1 organic onion (chopped)
1 bunch organic parsley (washed & chopped)
1 organic lettuce
3 organic baby tomatos
Heat a Tbls of coconut oil in a pan over a high heat and add the tuna steak. Sear for 1 minute on each side leaving the inside raw. Salt abundantly on both sides while searing.
Then pull pan off heat and add 1/2 of the chopped onion & a Tbls of capers with juice, leave to absorb.
Mix chopped parsley, salad, sliced baby tonatoes and remainder of chopped onion in a bowl and season with olive oil, balsamico vinegar, salt & pepper. Divide onto 2 plates.
Remove tuna from pan and slice into 1cm wide slices on a chopping board. Then arrange over salad, spoon over remaining onion & caper mix and add a squeeze of fresh lime.
For extra sustenance, add a handful of mixed raw nuts or sprinkle with a Tbls of sesame seeds.
Serve and enjoy!

VOTED TO GIVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TAN!
Sun worshippers unite! The super-antioxidant in SKINERGIE - Astaxanthin, has been voted by several hundred students to give you the sexiest, most beautiful tan!
A panel of students were asked to vote on the most attractive skin tone of a range of UV-protective supplements, and the warm, golden glow provided by Astaxanthin won hands down!!
Already super-popular with endurance runners, iron-men and other top athletes, the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and UV protective benefits of Astaxanthin are well documented. The algae that produces Astaxanthin only does so when its water supply dries up and the algae is exposed to bright sunlight: Haemacoccus Pluvialis is normally green and submerged. However when its water supply dwindles and it is exposed to direct sunshine, Haemacoccus Pluvialis produces its own, super-powerful 100% natural sunscreen, which allows the algae to survive out of the water and beneath harsh sunlight, in conditions where other algae just 'curl up and die'.
The antioxidant power of Astaxanthin has been demonstrated to be 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C, 54 times more powerful than beta-carotene and able to to dramatically reduce the wrinkles and inflammation linked to UV-induced skin aging.
Ideal for preparing your skin for Summer sunshine, Astaxanthin-rich also contains 2.5g of concentrated Omega 3 and collagen-boosting Acerola. A synergistic blend that protects skin from UV damage while still allowing you to absorb Vitamin D from the sun. Given that Vitamin D is essential for a healthy immune system, for strong bones and teeth and even for cancer protection - boosting natural Vitamin D3 levels through small, daily bursts of natural sunshine is one of the most effective ways of protecting your health.

FOUR AMAZING HEALTH BUDDIES IN YOUR KITCHEN CUPBOARD!
Christmas is the time we all overindulge, so here are 4 simple kitchen spices with the amazing ability to help keep you svelte despite the feast!
Curcumin, the active polyphenol antioxidant in turmeric and one of the main ingredients in BEAUTY SHOT has been shown in over nineteen clinical studies to protect against and help resolve high blood sugar, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. The studies showed that Curcumin helps to naturally stabilize blood sugar in ten entirely separate ways, all linked to an improvement in glucose metabolism. Curcumin is able to simultaneously:
- reduce liver glucose production
- reduce liver glycogen production
- stimulate increased glucose uptake
- increase the activation of AMP kinase
- suppress hyperglycemia-induced inflammation
- stimulate insulin secretion by the pancreas
- improve pancreatic cell function
- increasing insulin receptor function
- actively reduce insulin resistance
If (like us..) you are intending to splurge on chocolates, cookies and cakes over Christmas, Curcumin is your absolute best friend. Just take 2 tsp / day (mix with black pepper & coconut oil and heat with food for best absorption) or mix 2 sachets of BEAUTY SHOT in a glass of water just before you tuck in (The curcumin in BEAUTY SHOT is already highly bioavailable so does not need heating/mixing with fat). PS. As an added bonus, Curcumin also helps keep skin clear and blemish-free, virtually no matter what you eat.
Delicous in teas, cakes and hot chocolate, cinnamon is super-effective at stabilizing blood sugar levels and helping normalize type 2 diabetes. A meta-analysis of eight clinical studies on the effect of cinnamon intake on people with type 2 diabetes and/or prediabetes concluded that cinnamon is highly effective at lowering elevated fasting blood glucose levels and enhancing insulin sensitivity of cells. For healthy individuals, a cup of cinnamon tea with or after a meal actively works to balance blood sugar and thus reduce the risk of weight gain. PERFECT for washing down Christmas dinner!!
Delicious, fragrant and super versatile, coconut oil has been shown in multiple clinical studies to boost metabolism, increase healthy HDL cholesterol levels and actively reduce fat around the waist. The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have also been shown in clinical studies to boost memory and brain function. Coconut oil can also help relieve an upset stomach, heal yeast infections, boost energy and muscular performance, reduce whole body inflammation and (when applied externally) protect skin from dehydration. Cold pressed, organic coconut oil is the best!
Cloves are some of our favourite warming Winter spices. Long used by our grandmothers to relieve pain, toothache and infections, Latest clinical research now shows that cloves can do a whole lot lot more to support our wellbeing. Clinical trials at University of Minnesota, the University of Pittsburg and China's Capital Medical University each independently demonstrated that cloves have the ability to stop the growth of Cancer. In these trials, five types of cancer cells were exposed to cloves: Ovarian cancer, Breast cancer, Liver cancer, Colon cancer and Pancreatic cancer cells. All five responded favorably to whole clove extract, ie clove was able to halt both the activity and growth of the cancers while leaving healthy cell activity undisturbed. The clove extract halted the cancer cell activity in a dose-dependent manner: ie the more clove that was applied, the greater the observed anticancer effect. This is considered the gold-standard of determining whether a particular compound is causing a desired result. Pretty cool for a tiny dried flower..
