10 Savory Yogurt Bowls for a Hearty Breakfast

You’ve probably heard me say it before: eating veggies with most meals is an easy way to boost your health and happiness. And this food trend will help you start your day on track: savory yogurt bowls.

You may be used to combine your yogurt with cereal and fruit. But across many cultures, yogurt is traditional eaten in a savory dish. Whether it’s Indian raita, Greek tzatziki or Turkish yogurt soup, savory yogurt is a staple in many cuisines.

For a healthy breakfast that keeps you full until lunch, try a savory yogurt bowl. If you want to keep things simple, just drizzle olive oil over your yoghurt and sprinkle it with nuts, seeds, chili flakes and sea salt. Or you could go all in with nutrient-packed toppings like roasted veggies and poached eggs.

Check out these 10 savory yogurt bowls for a healthy start of your day!

7 Tips for Effective Communication with Your E-Doctor | The Health Sessions

7 Tips for Effective Communication with Your E-Doctor

This article is written in collaboration with Laboure College. 

Excellent communication is a fundamental part of any healthy relationship. Like any other healthy relationship, on a broad scale, it really applies to the doctor-patient relationship as well. When the main link of proper communication and understanding is broken between the doctor and patient relationship, a cascade of negative consequences can result. If the patient has not been able to express his or her symptoms, an incorrect diagnosis might be made. 

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations states in their study “Medical Errors and Poor Communication,” that communication errors are the leading cause of 60% to 70% of preventable hospital deaths. If the doctor hasn’t clearly got the idea of what their patient has to say about their symptoms, they may end up prescribing a wrong treatment plan. Bad communication inevitably leads to disappointment for both patient and doctor.

When your doctor is well experienced, you tend to listen to what he has to say rather than explaining your symptoms. But the conversation goes both ways. If you feel like a proper communication isn’t happening between you and your doctor, you might want to consider your communication options – especially in your e-consultation, where you will only have a fixed amount of time. Whether it is a video call or chat service with your physician, open communication plays an essential part in your e-consultation.

Here are 7 tips to help you have a more effective communication with your e-doctor.

10 Small Lifestyle Changes That Make a Big Difference

Do you ever fantasize about drastically changing your lifestyle? No more takeout while watching your favorite show – no, starting Monday, you will eat ‘clean’, start a new exercise program and add wellness routines to your daily schedule.

It’s tempting to think that going all-in on a healthy lifestyle will make you feel better instantly.
