10 Most Unusual Offices around the World 2017

Your workspace can have a big impact on your creativity, productivity and energy levels. Personally, my favorite office feature is natural light. I find it incredible energising. But for others, especially those in a creative role, companies seem to be placing a great deal of importance on inspiring and bizarre décor. From giant pink whiskers to indoor Ferris wheels, here are ten of the most unusual offices around the world.

1. Mindvalley HQ, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

4 Unusual Ways to Boost Oral Health

I’m always been somewhat fascinated by oral health and even remember asking my orthodontist why my teeth were crooked to begin with when getting braces. Of course, his answer: simply genetic. Just like my dentist told me that teeth couldn’t heal and that sugar was causing cavities.

As I researched my way into a real food diet, a lot of things started making a lot more sense, but the idea that dental health was sheerly genetic and the presence of sugar on the outside of the teeth causing cavities didn’t make sense at all. Then, I read Cure Tooth Decay by Rami Nagel (much cheaper on Kindle if you have it) and Dr. Price’s Nutrition and Physical Degeneration and things feel in to place.

Like the rest of our body, our teeth and oral health systems are a living, changing environment that is, but just treating from the outside alone (brushing and flossing), won’t fix oral problems unless you address the inside too, though these are still very important.

How to Boost Oral Health

Optimal oral health comes with supporting the body and mouth from the inside and outside at the same time. Once I realized this logically, I was still shocked to see the changes start taking place in my own mouth! My teeth got whiter, my gum puffiness went away, and my dentist even commented that cavities were getting better and my plaque was gone!

There were several things that were vital for me to boost oral health for myself and my family members:

Change in Diet
Adding Supplements
Balancing hormones
Change in oral health products
1. Change in Diet

What you eat can impact oral health as much (or more) than brushing or flossing.

Here’s why…

Teeth are in constant state of remineralization as the saliva in the mouth provides minerals to the teeth and the cells in the teeth use these minerals to strengthen themselves.

I first started researching this after reading Cure Tooth Decay by Rami Nagel and Dr. Price’s Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. Both books delve into the work of Dr. Weston A Price, a dentist who studied the oral health of people in cultures around the world.

He found that certain tribes that never brushed or flossed had virtually no cavities or tooth decay, and everyone had perfectly straight teeth and wide jaw lines. His research showed that several factors contributed to this incredible oral health in certain populations, mainly:

The presence of enough fat soluble vitamins in the diet
Low levels of phytic acid in the diet
Enough minerals in the diet
I talked about this in depth in this post about how I reversed my own cavities and this one about how to have healthy teeth from the inside out.

I followed the advice in Cure Tooth Decay and made some changes to my diet, mainly:

Diet to Help Heal Cavities and Improve Oral Health

I drastically cut foods that contained high amounts of phytic acid (grains, beans, etc). I already wasn’t eating grains or beans, but I also cut or limited nuts.
Limited foods containing even natural sugars or starches– I limited fruit and even starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes and focused on mineral rich vegetables, bone broths, meats and healthy fats.
Ate a LOT of healthy fats. I added extra of coconut oil to my diet each day, and used only pastured, cultured butter.
I made an effort to consume a lot of homemade bone broth for its added minerals.
To recap: No grains, beans or nuts and limited fruits and starches. Lots of vegetables, protein, LOTS of healthy fats and bone broth.

2. Adding Supplements:

Supplements to Help Heal Cavities and Improve Oral Health

To help the body remineralize cavities, it is sometimes necessary to increase mineral levels with supplements. While diet alone might be enough, many foods are depleted of nutrients from being grown in nutrient depleted soil, so supplements help fill the gaps. These are the supplements I typically recommend for improved oral health and dental healing:

Fermented Cod Liver Oil and Butter Blend–   This is one of the main supplements recommended by Dr. Price from his research and recommended in Cure Tooth Decay. Only the fermented Cod Liver Oil has the optimal combination of nutrients and is high i Vitamins A, D and K.
Vitamin D– This was the other main supplement that Dr. Price and the Drs. Mellanby found was extremely supportive of dental healing. In the study they did, cavities healed even when diet wasn’t changed if Vitamin D was optimized and the best healing occurred when diet was optimized and Vitamin D was added. l I also spend time in the sun *gasp* at noon, everyday! When taking the Fermented Cod Liver Oil and spending time in the sun, extra Vitamin D is usually not needed.
Coconut Oil– I take an additional 1/4-1/2 cup a day of coconut oil in a smoothie or melted in tea each day. We get ours from Tropical Traditions, but you can find it many places…. just look for organic, virgin and unrefined coconut oil. My favorite right now is to blend it into coffee to emulsify it with a dash of vanilla.
Others: I also take Magnesium, Gelatin, and Vitamin C daily, though these aren’t as vital to tooth healing.
3. Balancing Hormones

Hormones can have a dramatic effect on oral health as they can control the acid/alkaline balance in the mouth and how well the body can heal or fight disease. Many of us have symptoms of hormone imbalance and things like optimizing sleep, stress, diet, and fitness can make a big difference in hormone health and oral health.

4. Change In Oral Health Products

Many conventional toothpastes and mouth products contain chemicals and artificial ingredients that can do more harm than good! Ever read the label on a regular tube of toothpaste? There is a list of cautions and warnings as even a small mouthful of toothpaste can kill a small child… not something I want sitting on my counter with teething toddlers running around!

The good news is that switching to natural toothpaste and other oral health products is often easier than switching diet, exercise or (*ahem*) getting enough sleep.

I’ve been making my own remineralizing toothpaste for years, and been using it in conjunction with OraWellness Products. In that time, I have had no new cavities, and several areas that the dentist was waiting to fill at my next appointment weren’t there when I went back! It also used to take them a long time to scrape down my teeth at each appointment, and now it literally takes a couple of minutes at most.

I’ve also been whitening my teeth naturally, though my method sparked a lot of controversy on Pinterest!

Here’s my full oral health routine that I used when I was actively trying to remineralize my teeth.

7 Unusual Health Changes that Have A Big Impact

It is often assumed that it takes a major lifestyle change to see a noticeable difference in health and wellness. While a major change is often the best way to see improved health quickly, there are some minor and unusual health changes that can make a big impact! Even better, most of them are free or very inexpensive!

1. Get Some Vitamin D

I’m glad to see that there is increasing awareness about the importance of Vitamin D in the news lately. I’ve written before about the importance of Vitamin D and how Vitamin D levels impact everything from oral health to sun tolerance.

I personally prefer to get Vitamin D from sun exposure whenever possible, but there are also some high quality supplements that are helpful in winter or when sun exposure is not an option. Overall, optimizing Vitamin D levels is one very small change that has a tremendous impact!

Free Option: Get healthy sun exposure to boost Vitamin D levels naturally.

Easy Option: If sun exposure isn’t an option, it is possible to optimize levels and protect skin from the sun with certain supplements.

2. Get Grounded

I first encountered the idea of “Grounding” or “Earthing” when I read the book Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever. The basic theory is that out bodies need to come in direct contact with the grounding force of the earth on a regular basis to reduce the positive charge that can build up in our bodies. Our bodies and cells have electrical energy, and especially with the high prevalence of Electromagnetic waves, Wi-Fi and mobile phone waves, many of us have a high amount of positive charge built up in our bodies and need to be “grounded” to diffuse this.

In modern society many of use rarely (or never) come in direct contact with the earth and the book explains how this can contribute to many health problems. The good news is that it’s an easy fix!

Free Option: Spend some time outside barefoot in direct contact with the dirt.

Easy Option: Get an earthing mat to sleep on. It provides the grounding force so you can reduce inflammation and boost health while you sleep!

3. Potty Posture

Yes, I just used the word potty… I have toddlers! Turns out that another thing we got wrong in modern society is the way we use the restroom. Speaking of toddlers, they give a good clue of the correct way to use the loo: in a natural squatting position. Experts point out that the squatting position is more natural and can help avoid colon disease, constipation, hemorrhoids, pelvic floor issues and similar ailments.

This post explains a lot more of the science behind using the squatting position.

Free Option: Squat on the toilet seat or put a stool, box or a couple of upside-down buckets under your toilet  to rest your feet on while using the restroom.

Easy Option: A Squatty Potty is an easier (and more attractive) option for adopting a squatting position without attempting a balancing act on the toilet seat!

4. Boost Gut Health

Hippocrates was once quoted for saying “all disease begins in the gut.” Time is proving Hippocrates to be a pretty smart guy, and science is even now linking poor gut health with a myriad of health problems.

From eczema to poor immune health, it seems that our gut health influences much more than we previously realized. If all disease beings in the health, it is logical to realize that perhaps optimal health begins here as well.

Overall, there are ten times the number of bacteria in the body as actual human cells, and this colonization of bacteria (good or bad) can weight up to three pounds. With such a large concentration of bacteria in our bodies, it is logical that we depend rather heavily on them for health.

I make it a priority to do as many things as possible to improve gut health on a daily basis, but even small changes can make a big difference in this area!

Free Option: Make some fermented foods (you have to eat anyway…) or drinks like Kombucha and water kefir.

Easy Option: Eating fermented foods is a great option, but if you don’t have time or don’t like them, a high quality probiotic supplement can be another good option. (This is the one I take)

5. Get Some Sleep

We’ve all heard how important sleep is, but it turns out that it is likely even more important than we thought.

I recently read the book Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar and Survival, which though poorly written in parts, has a lot of good information on the science behind the importance of sleep. It turns out that lack of sleep impacts your health (and your heart disease and cancer risk) just as much as a bad diet or constant exposure to toxins.

Statistically, getting enough sleep is one thing that we (as a population) are notoriously terrible at doing. The good news is that getting enough sleep is a completely free way to boost health…we just have to make it a priority!

Free Option: Just get some sleep! Here are some tips for improving sleep quality and getting to sleep more easily!

Easy Option: Ok, so there isn’t really a way to get the benefits of sleep without actually sleeping, so check out these tips and get some ZZZZs!

6. Eat More Nutrients

Many of us consume plenty of food but not enough actual nutrients! Statistically, many of our diets are made up of processed foods and chemical ingredients and they lack the important mineral rich and living foods that were once an integral part of any diet.

Diet is key, and while some supplements may help, they won’t be effective without a solid diet, since you can’t out supplement a poor diet! My suggestion is to focus on consuming extremely nutrient dense foods daily, rather than trying to “diet” which brings thoughts of deprivation. From experience, I can say that when I consume bone broth, grass fed meats, healthy fats like butter and coconut oil, raw milk and fermented vegetables each day, I am never hungry for (or crave) unhealthy foods.

Free Option: We all have to eat anyway, so just choose more nutrient dense foods like inexpensive homemade bone broth, soups, high quality meats, fermented vegetables (inexpensive and easy to make!) and other healthy foods.

Easy Option: Once we’re consuming high nutrient foods, certain supplements can complement a healthy diet and help the body operate optimally.

7. Clean Up Your Mouth

Did you know that oral health directly impacts the entire body and problems in the mouth can lead to compromised health?

Turns out that cavities and gum problems indicate problems that go much deeper than the mouth! Diet actually makes a big difference here too, and emerging evidence shows that teeth are even capable of remineralizing and healing if given the proper tools…

Free Option: Eat a diet that supports oral health (you have to eat anyway).

Easy Option: Check out my oral health resources page for some easy options to help boost your oral health.

In pictures: Bruce Forsyth fans copy his pose in unusual locations

Among Sir Bruce Forsyth’s biggest fans are a group of friends who worshipped him so much that they have recreated his famous “thinker” pose wherever they have been around the world for the past decade.

Following the veteran entertainer’s death last week, they have shared some of their best photos.

The friends met at university in Brighton and started “doing a Brucie” when posing for photos on nights out. Their homage to the great man went global when they travelled to the Roskilde music festival in Denmark after graduating in 2007.

“That trip was where the whole idea of taking these photos in various locations around the world came from,” says Joseph Bradfield, 31.

“We did it a lot through our university days when we were out drinking, but that trip around Europe after graduating, we pretty much took one everywhere we went.

“It became a bit of a thing whenever there was a photo op. It would be, ‘Look at the camera, smile, now pull a Bruce.’ It just snowballed.”

Perhaps the best “thinker” tribute was staged when one of the group, Jeremy Dresner, got married in Canada.

The friends often attract confused looks when striking the pose in countries where Sir Bruce wasn’t a big star, Joseph says.

“You do it in the UK and people kind of know what you’re doing. They still don’t really know why you’re doing it but there’s at least that glimmer of recognition.

“But whenever we’ve done it overseas there’s always puzzlement on the locals’ faces.”

Joseph says the friends – about 10 in all – admired Sir Bruce’s approach to his career as well as being fans of his TV shows.

“There’s that quote where he said, ‘I don’t see myself as a singer or a dancer or an actor. I’m an entertainer,'” Joseph explains.

“That really resonated with us, that approach to life, that you don’t have to be the best at any one particular discipline but it’s all about the impact you have on other people and entertaining other people.”

The friends decided to gather the photos after the news of Sir Bruce’s death broke.

“It’s been quite an operation of digging through Facebook photos to find everything,” Joseph says.

“The second the news happened last week my phone lit up with the Whatsapp group we’re all part of saying, we really have to do something with this trove of photos.”

14 Unusual Kitchen Gadgets I Use Daily

The other day, I was informed by my four-year-old that I am “so old” now. Granted, she gives this label to anyone over the age of 12, but it made me think about how things have changed since I “got old.” I realized that I’ve simplified so much of my life over the last decade. I use the same ingredients like bentonite clay for washing my hair, detoxing my armpits and making tooth powder.

I use coconut oil for practically everything. I’ve also simplified my wardrobe and my kitchen tools lately (now to just simplify the shoes…)

When I first got married, I practically collected kitchen gadgets and dishes because I was just learning to cook and I loved experimenting. Now, I have worked to simplify and reduce the number of tools and gadgets in my kitchen and I’m left with wonderfully half-empty drawers and cabinets that only contain the tools I really use.

These are 14 of the kitchen gadgets and tools that made the cut and that I use daily, take on vacation and couldn’t cook without… In fact, I could probably cook practically anything with just these items:

Stainless Steel Table Pans

When we had our third child, regular baking sheets started becoming too small. I found these stainless steel table pans that are used for catering and in restaurants.

They are perfect for everything from roasting a turkey to preparing pounds of roasted vegetables to making a 12-pound meatloaf to serve 30+ people (did that last night).

I can prepare an entire meal with two of these by making meat in one dish and roasted vegetables in another and they are ready at the same time. I typically also use these to make double of a meal so we have another meal of leftovers.

These are steel, not aluminum like most baking pans, and have a much deeper lip so spilling isn’t an issue. I’ve donated all of my other baking pans and ONLY use these now. Even better, they stack and store very minimally.

I even bring them when we go on vacation. Best $20 I’ve ever spent.

Kitchen Shears

Kitchen scissors are much more useful than they get credit for. Besides opening packages and cutting up a chicken, they make preparing food for small children so much faster. I use them at every meal to cut up meat and vegetables for my babies and toddlers.

Tongs

Kitchen tongs are another multi-use kitchen gadget. They can be used for stirring, tossing, salad serving, grilling, sautéing and so much more.

Immersion Blender

A good immersion blender replaces a blender, whisk and various other kitchen tools. It can be used to make butter coffee in the morning, whisk foods or blend sauces, or even make homemade whipped cream. It also stores easily in a small drawer (unlike a blender). We still have a Blendtec and love it, but I use the immersion blender more often.

Oven Gloves

These oven gloves replace hot pads and kitchen mits and store very minimally. They also work for grilling and are perfect for wearing while cooking with a cast iron pan.

A Great Knife

A friend introduced me to Wusthof knives. They are pricy, but these three knives have replaced my entire knife block and they also store minimally in a single drawer.

Mason Jars

As drinking glasses, food storage, vases, candle holders, for canning, salad in a jar, and so much more… mason jars can replace so many other kitchen containers.

Cuppow Lids

Cuppow lids turn mason jars into an easy no-spill drinking cup.

Cast Iron Skillet

It would be possible to cook almost every meal with just a cast iron skillet if needed. It can be used stove top, in the oven or even on a campfire. Once you season it correctly, a cast iron skillet is relatively non-stick and lasts forever.

Huck Towels

These huck towels have replaced all of my kitchen towels and napkins. They are much more absorbent than regular kitchen towels, easy to wash and work as cloth napkins as well. They even use these in hospitals to clean up blood because they work so well.

Steel Bowls

A set of stainless steel bowls replaced all of my glass, plastic and silicon bowls that I used to use. They stack and store together and since they have a lid, they work for food storage as well.

Stainless Steel Dishes

With kids, glass dishes never work well. We’d broken about half of our glass wedding dishes when we finally switched to stainless steel dishes for the kids. Now, we have a stash of steel plates, bowls and cups that we use daily. They are dishwasher and oven safe and don’t break!

Bamboo Utensils

Our simple set of bamboo utensils replaced all of the plastic utensils we used to have and they work so much better.

Crinkle Cutter

An unusual kitchen tool and one of my favorites. A crinkle cutter is safe for the kids to use to help me chop vegetables for meals, which helps keep them involved and makes them more likely to want to eat what we’ve made.

7 Romantic, Fun, and Unusual Date Ideas (That Are Cheap or Free!)

Experts say that weekly date nights help couples have more intimate and lasting relationships. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or your anniversary, why not try these fun and unusual date ideas to keep things fun as well as romantic?

I’m lucky to have a romantic and adventurous husband (he’s Italian!), and we’ve had some unusual dates over the years. Break the “dinner and a movie” routine and try one of these unusual date ideas today.

Breakfast Date

Dinner is the typical date meal, but no need to leave out the others! Breakfast is a healthier (and cheaper) meal to eat out. Head to a diner or local restaurant for an early morning date, and reserve the rest of the day for some good couple time. It can also be easier to get babysitters on a Saturday morning or let your kids play at a friend’s house.

Embark on an Adventure

This is my husband’s favorite type of date, and I admit, I’ve enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone on some of our more adventurous dates. Pick a hobby or adventure and do it together. Our most recent was scuba diving, but there are tons of possibilities. Visit an indoor rock climbing gym, go kayaking (another one of ours), race go karts, try ice skating (not my favorite!), or if you are really brave… try karaoke!

Around the World At Home

This is a recurring date theme for us. Going out can be difficult with little ones, so plan a fun date themed around ethnic foods and enjoy it at home once the kids are in bed. Make your own sushi and eat on the floor. Make healthy Mexican food and watch a movie in Spanish. Make fondue and eat by candlelight. Whatever you choose, set the mood with music and decorations to make it fun! Even if you don’t go for ethnic foods, enjoy a late night date at home and cook for each other! This is also a budget friendly way to keep the romance alive.

Go Camping

This certainly isn’t for everyone, but it usually promises to be a bonding experience. Always fun as a family, but if you can sneak away for a night, go camping as a couple. The alone time around the campfire will give you a chance to really catch up, and the potential for unforeseen circumstances (wild animals, rain, etc.) makes it an adventure.

Volunteer

This is a great way to get closer as a couple- focus on a cause you both believe in and volunteer together. This is something great to do with kids too, but can be a bonding experience as a couple. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, raise money for a cause, or pick a service project at your church. It might make you grateful for what you have and will certainly be some quality time with your love! Another advantage- spreading the love doesn’t cost a thing!

Visit a Local Attraction

We often forget about the things that others come to our town to see. Go to a play at the community theater or check out the comedy club. Find an arboretum or botanical garden and walk around. Hit the batting cages or mini golf or even just browse the bookstore together and talk over a cup of coffee. If it is in season, visit an orchard or pick-your-own farm or take a tour of a local brewery or vineyard.

Exercise Or Do An Activity Together

A healthy way to spend time together, exercise can be fun as a couple! Pick a new sport to learn: tennis, racquetball, basketball or swimming… just pick something you enjoy. For an activity, go miniature golfing, paint pottery together, take dance or painting lessons, hiking, bike riding or canoeing. These are often the best times to talk and you get the chance to develop a new hobby or skill.

Making time to spend as a couple can be much more challenging than it should be, especially with kids. Consider swapping babysitting with friends to save money. Watch a movie at home if you can’t get away or play board games or chess together. Swap  massages while you recap your week… just don’t wait for a time like Valentine’s Day to have an excuse to spend time together!

This episode is also brought to you by Thrive Market. If you live in a real food desert like I do, it can be difficult to find certain organic foods, speciality foods, or allergy-friendly foods. Thrive Market is my solution to this problem. They carry thousands of the non-perishable foods that I use most often at discount prices. I think of them as a combination of Costco, Amazon, and Whole Foods. They are online like Amazon, have a yearly membership fee to unlock discounts like Costco, and carry high quality foods like Whole Foods.

I order from them regularly and highly recommend them. Check out all of their products and grab a free jar of coconut oil here.

This episode is also sponsored by The Wellness Mama Cookbook. My kids helped me test these recipes so they are definitely family-approved. They’re also mom-approved and here’s why.

I know what it is to be busy. I made sure the majority of the Wellness Mama Cookbook recipes can be made in under 30 minutes and many of them only one pan (who wants to wash dishes?). All of my 200+ grain-free recipes replace processed sugar and flour with nutrient-dense foods and vegetables kids love!

You can check out the cookbook at any major bookstore or on Amazon. I’m delighted to share my family’s favorite recipes with all of you!
