Red bush – or Rooibos in Afrikaans – tea comes from the leaves of a bush that grows in southern Africa and like many teas has valuable antioxidants. If you’re craving flavor, it comes in vanilla, orange, peach and even red bush chai. Don’t forget to get my recipe for rooibos -iced tea!

But most of the positive research states that the health benefits of apples lie in their skin.

Wacky Winter Smoothies

Smoothies are the easiest breakfast around and a fast way to fill you up with the healthiest foods around.
