  • Strawberry explosion

    Strawberry explosion

    The adjustment period after the holiday season is always a tough one. Firstly we have to "untrain" all those bad habits of nibbling every so often and just never having enough.

    Most of us are aware that we nibble on goodies that don't really feed our bodies with the nutrients and minerals that it needs, hence just carrying on in the cycle of nibbling.

    Consider including strawberries into your daily nibbling. They are not only good for you, they taste amazing too!

    What Is Strawberry?

    Strawberries grow in bushes and are delicious seasonal fruits that also boost your health. Strawberries are often associated with a European fruit; however, they are popular throughout the world.

    Strawberries are often eaten raw directly or by adding them to fruit salads, custards, and various other recipes. They are also extensively used in processed food items, including ice creams, jams, jellies, squashes, syrups, confections, baked goods, chocolates, and even in medicines due to their extraordinarily rich flavour, taste, and colour. But nothing beats fresh strawberries plucked from the bush and eaten raw!

    Nutritional Value Of Strawberry

    We know that fruits, particularly berries and those with exotic colours are rich in antioxidants, which means that they are huge boosters of your health. Strawberries are no exception to this rule; in addition to antioxidants and polyphenols, they have many other nutrientsvitamins, and minerals that contribute to the overall health benefits of these berries. These nutrients include vitamin C, folate, potassiummanganese, dietary fibre, and magnesium.

    Even the healthiest snack sometimes need to be eaten in a different way, try out this easy recipe to enhance your Strawberry experience!

  • Return to a (R)evolutionary based diet

    Return to a (R)evolutionary based diet

    This is a diet of lean meats, seafood, vegetables, fruits, (raw) nuts and seeds, moderate physical activity, adding all the essential vitamins, minerals and herbs of primitive man. 


    face reality 

    Reality is - trans-fatty acids, sugar and refined carbohydrates are not essential to your diet, in reality, they destroy your health, so do processed and preserved foods.

    Supplementation is essential to your success.  Vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6) are essential to your health and a successful lifestyle changeover. 

    stop counting  

    The Annique Lifestyle follows an (R)evolutionary Food Programme and does not require the counting of kilojoules, fat grams or carbohydrate grams. 

    Stick to raw, natural organic and nutrient dense food- if it requires reading a label, put it back on the shelf. 

    Replace breakfast and lunch with the nutrient-rich Annique Lifestyle Shake and eat a healthy dinner which includes meat, vegetables and salad. 

    Drink water, Annique Rooibos tea and Annique herbal teas.  The only thing you should count are the lost kilogrammes.

    do supplement  

    When you have a weight problem or a health concern, it is a clear indication that the body is out of balance. 

    While changing your lifestyle and diet, your body will need extra assistance to re-balance its functions.  We can plot your needs to determine which vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids your body needs. 

    Annique's Forever Healthy range of vitamin and mineral supplements has been created by nutritional experts to provide the optimum balance between science and nature.

    Advanced, complex scientific formulas, combined with the best nature has to offer, has provided a range that will help to improve and preserve your health and wellbeing. 


    Most people have less than optimal digestive systems, leading to poor ingestion of nutrients.  An unhealthy digestive tract and diseased organs will starve the rest of the body of essential nutrients and allow toxins into the bloodstream.  

    A diet high in refined carbohydrates also counteracts the good flora in the digestive system, leaving it depleted of these vital micro-organisms. 

    Changing over to Annique's Lifestyle Programme requires the supplementation of beneficial flora that will help the digestive system to break down and absorb food. 

    Taking probiotics will ensure that the maximum nutrition is extracted from food and supplements and allows the digestive system to heal itself. 

    This  link will take you to the OptiFlora where you can order it for quick delivery. 

    Take a look at the meal replacement flavours here, which you can also order for quick delivery.

  • the (R)evolutionary lifestyle

    the (R)evolutionary lifestyle

    Some critics claim that reduced carbohydrate diets are a fashion trend.  Well, this "trend" actually dates back to ancient times.  Anthropological studies of early hominids have concluded that they lived as hunter-gatherers.  While nuts, seeds, vegetation and fruit made up a part of hunter-gatherers diet, his mainstay was hunted or scavenged animal prey.  More recent evaluations of early man's nutritional patterns by Dr Loren Cordain, estimate that as much as 65% of his kilojoules were derived from animal products.

    Granted, early man was not eating corn-fed Angus beef, but he was eating the meat, the organs and the bones of his prey-essentially, a high protein and high-fat diet.  It was much more recent that man began exploiting an agricultural niche.  This transition was made due to decreasing population of large game prey, an increasing population of humans and the more permanent settlement of humans in specific areas.  

    More proof that you are a predator.....

    First of all, there is the fact that your eyes are situated in the front of your face - ideal for hunting because we needed the three-dimensional vision - flight animals eyes are at the sides of their heads. 

    Accept it, our metabolism is slow - to be able to digest complex proteins, the digestive tract is very long and has a slow process.  This ensures the optimal absorption of nutrition from food.  Compared to the vegetarian gorilla we have a 60% longer digestive tract and a much slower metabolism.  Slower metabolic rate also indicates we need to eat less often and not "graze" like many animals.  With a high carbohydrate diet, humans behave like grazing animals and develop problems like diabetes and obesity. 

    With all the information on hand, it is still very difficult to change bad habits.  We are no longer gatherers or hunters.  We are now (most of us) glued to our seats and do very little physical activities that would assist in the burning of all the unwanted kilojoules. 

    Are you just too busy to cook up that balanced meal?  Never fear!
