THIS IS HOW I CAME OUT TO MY PARENTS :)

THIS IS HOW I CAME OUT TO MY PARENTS :)

In my hand, I held the sketch of a mountain – the peak read ”PEACE’ and just below, I’d written down ‘COME OUT’. ‘YOU KNOW HOW SOME BOYS LIKE GIRLS…?’ January 3rd, 2016 I came out to my parents. My mom, dad and I were […]

GORGEOUS DRINKS FOR ‘VATA’ BODY TYPE – AYURVEDA

GORGEOUS DRINKS FOR ‘VATA’ BODY TYPE – AYURVEDA

My good friend Mimi Walter recently made me super curious about the three Ayurvedic body types. Listen to this: you could be a (predominantly) Vata, Pitta, or Kapha type! For example – I am a Vata type (the air element) so I am slender, hardly […]

PLANT BASED IN PORTUGAL

PLANT BASED IN PORTUGAL

Is it easy? Yes, if you eat lots of Acai Bowls! Or Fresh Fruit (some of the best mangoes I have tried so far, better than Mexico).


And no, if you still crave cooked food, seafood – or you’ve got a ‘sweet tooth’ (I’ll just say this: pastel de nata…)

Absolute favourite: Warung Ocean Vibes, in Costa de Caparica.

See below for tasty stills!

PROBLEME? ZAMBESTE, CU IUBIRE

PROBLEME? ZAMBESTE, CU IUBIRE

Daca vad o femeie cu par la subrat? Zambesc, cu iubire. Daca vad un barbat cu unghiile facute? Zambesc, cu iubire. Daca vad o persoana si nu stiu ‘ce’ este? Zambesc, cu iubire (si intreb, cu bucurie!). INFLEXIBIL Rigiditatea si fixismele mentale se repara cu deschidere si detasare. […]

10 LECTII + RETETE PE CARE LE-AM INVATAT DE LA MIMI WALTER IN ULTIMELE DOUA SAPTAMANI IMPREUNA

10 LECTII + RETETE PE CARE LE-AM INVATAT DE LA MIMI WALTER IN ULTIMELE DOUA SAPTAMANI IMPREUNA

Mimi imi daruieste – cu fiecare intalnire – atat de multa bucurie, rasete, positivitate, iubire, idei si ‘suport’! Precum Louise, Emmet si alte surse de lumina, Mimi imi reaminteste sa am incredere in planul divin ce are ca scop binele nostru suprem. Dupa ultimele doua saptamani petrecute impreuna, simt sa impartasesc cu voi ce am invatat de la ea:

  1. Fii bland, deschis, flexibil – nu te opune, nu rezista. Momentul prezent (oricat de dificil ar parea…) este punctul nostru de sprijin – si nu ceva de care sa fugim.

  2. Te-ai nascut sub o stea norocoasa – priveste si observa, cu detasare, ce bine s-a potrivit totul in viata ta (pana la urma), si ai incredere ca ceva si mai bun, si apoi ceva si mai bun, este in drum spre tine.

  3. Daca nu iti place sa gatesti (eu…), gaseste pe cineva care exceleaza la asta (Mimi …. sau prietena noastra Andreea Lazarescu de la RAWZ – cele mai bune torturi raw vegane pe care le-am incercat!). Mai jos va prezint cateva bunatati de care Mimi m-a facut constient:

  4. Tagliatelle din cartof dulce crud, cu un sos din caju si mirodenii. Supa de rosii. Salata de vinete. Salate, in general, superbe. Masline raw, insa delicioase. Cele mai bune curmale. Sare ayurvedica cu gust de oua.

  5. Tot raul spre bine. De multe ori, atunci cand aparea vreo situatie provocatoare in discutie, Mimi ma surprindea cu cate o perspectiva total inedita (‘Lasa, nu te supara, o sa vezi ca maine o sa te roage sa vii!’, ‘Poate era furata si atunci nici nu o sa fie nicio problema’, ‘Lasa, da-mi-l mie, si am rezolvat problema elegant’, ‘Schimbati locurile si atunci nu o sa mai fie nicio problema’, ‘Iti dai seama ca exact asta ai facut si tu in trecut, tocmai de asta recunosti la ei acum’)… Mda!

  6. Energia conteaza – am vazut, pe corpurile fizice, dar si la nivel emotional, impactul mentalitatii, cuvintelor, atitudinii, si starii celor de acasa. Cateodata eram – emotional – la nivelul marii, alteori, in mijlocul pamantului!

  7. Muzica te transporta intr-o a patra dimensiune – calmeaza si linisteste. Face orice lucru frumos sa para posbil. Am ascultat mult Antje Nagula. I-am aratat lui Mimi Spotify, ca sa poata accesa muzica oriunde, oricand.

  8. Ne-am dus la filme – am ras, ne-am emotionat, am petrecut timp cu cei dragi noua. Ne-am reamintit ca sarea, energia celor care iti prepara fresh-ul, informatia primita cat consumi mancare, si starea ta interioara isi spun toate cuvantul atunci cand vine vorba de procesat, digerat, asimilat si tot asa 🙂

  9. Multe albume foto + momente candide imortalizate pe film + prieteni de suflet = o ultima seara memorabila.

  10. Tu insuti, fara frici, si fara masti – este tot ce ai nevoie pentru o viata perfecta!

THIS IS WHY YOU’RE FAT

THIS IS WHY YOU’RE FAT

Before we begin:

  • this is not a piece of fat shaming – all bodies are great bodies, and we LOVE our way into new conditions, instead of being miserable about ourselves.
  • my intention is to explain, in a radically simple manner, why you get fat, and how to reverse the process, should you wish to.

We are entitled to perfect health. It is our birthright. Most fat/skinny people suffer (personal experience), and we must stop that. We must reclaim our birthright. That is – perfect health!


Why Am I Fat?

In one word: ACIDOSIS.

A small amount of acids is necessary – it helps break down larger stuff. But overall, our body loves being alkaline, not acidic. So when our body is faced with acidosis (too many acids, coming from the food we eat and the lifestyle we live) it needs to neutralise it somehow. Here are the three ways acidosis is neutralised:

  1. Combat acidosis using hormones produced by the adrenals (also known as the stress glands.) These hormones are cholesterol-based. When the acidosis +++, cholesterol +++ (to produce more hormones needed to fight down acidosis). But because the adrenals soon fail (they need lots of sleep, peace and calm to recover…) the cholesterol +++ cannot be put to use –> GAIN WEIGHT.
  2. Use electrolytes (calcium, magnesium, etc.) to deal with acidosis. The body uses electrolytes from bones, muscles, other tissue, and if your thyroid/parathyroid aren’t in top-notch state, the electrolytes won’t be replaced –> osteoporosis, fractures, joint, hair, nails, teeth etc. issues.
  3. Fight down acidosis with the help of the water between cells. This will result in inflammation, water retention, swollen feet, palms, and so on.

If you’re fat, your body is dealing with a serious case of acidosis. Same goes for those of us who are skinny and don’t properly assimilate; faced with connective tissue issues, for instance.

Fat shaming, the stigma around body weight and absurd expectations are very real issues. They must be annihilated; replaced by a radically loving and all-embracing outlook. But so is the case with our personal acidosis.

 

How to Reverse the Process?

The good news is everything can be reversed. Our bodies are smart, strong entities and go through a great deal of work to offset and survive decades of abuse we put them through.

How you change your style in order to best honour your life is a personal decision, and a lifelong process.

Food Wise: you sustain life with life; ideally, you would only consume foods which are alive, such as fruit, and veggies, or green leaves. I know, it sounds radical, but so are the results yielded – miraculous 😉

Lifestyle Wise: do what you have to do in order to live your best life; grounded in serenity, doing what you love, living in beauty, interacting with positive people. Again, it is a very personal journey, because there is a Divine Design for each of us, and so it only makes sense the Perfect Plan to reach it would be personalised 🙂
