FOOD INSPIRATION, WEEK 4 OF 2018

FOOD INSPIRATION, WEEK 4 OF 2018

Here’s your weekly digest of yummy food pictures + precious lessons we can all learn about clean eating and conscious food choices!

Week 4 of 2018


FIRST PART OF THE DAY

berry bowl, with vegan yogurt and lots of coconut flakes on top!
acai bowl, made with coconut yogurt – the bread was only used as a prop 🙂
fresh fruit and vegan ice cream…

 

During the week, I wake up super early (5.32 am) and go to school from 7-1pm everyday, so what I do is bring some tea (herbal: ginger, cinnamon & roiboos, dandy), coconut water and some fruit to snack on. Ideally, if I have a slow day, I only start eating at noon, giving my body plenty of time to heal and detox.

SMART CHOICES: liquids, such as tea, coconut water, or cold pressed juices are so good for the body, helping alleviate the lymphatic acidosis and hydrating profoundly, at cell level.

If you have fruit, try make it exciting, by adding shredded coconut on top which makes it so crunchy and yummy and fun!

UNHAPPY CHOICES: I’ve been going out for breakfast a few times and got acai bowls (quite happy with this, just that the vegan yogurt is a bit too processed and heavy) or something called MATCHA BABE=fresh fruit & vegan ice cream. This was an unhappy idea, because the vegan ice cream proved too processed and complicated for my body.

LATER PART OF THE DAY

GF avocado toast – with an egg on top!
Namaste zoodles 🙂
chilaquiles – a Mexican dish
cute vegan soup 🙂

The avocado toast (with an egg on top!!) was not a happy choice, because it’s our own personal CANDIDA that craves bad carbs such as bread (or substitutes, such as the GF toast in this case). A lot of smelly farts and gas after this meal 🙁

The chilaquiles – a traditional Mexican meal – a confusing combo of nachos+spicy salsa+beans+onions+avocado was another unhappy choice. Too complicated, too difficult, too energy consuming. Generating smelly farts and bad skin, too!

The Namaste Zoodles (zucchini noodles with asparagus, tiny pieces of tofu and sun dried tomatoes) were great; only thing I’d change is the oil element, I do not add any type of oils to the foods I eat.

Lastly, that cute soup (pumpkin and spinach) was vegan, I am being told, and super yummy. I don’t like sprouts in general, but the tiny bit in the centre of this soup was yum!

Let me know how you like this type of posts – or any changes you’d like to see next time 🙂

CUM SA FACI UN Açaí BOWL LA TINE ACASA

CUM SA FACI UN Açaí BOWL LA TINE ACASA

Açaí este ceva precum zmeura, murele – insa din Brazilia. Si este folosit pentru a crea un bol extrem de delicios (in opinia mea). Inafara Braziliei, majoritatea localurilor healthy care vand açaí utilizeaza (dupa ce am investigat intensiv!) açaí pudra sau pasta congelata concentrata.

De cand sunt in Romania, am inlocuit insa açaí cu zmeura/afine/mure, depinde ce am gasit. Inca il denumesc bol de açaí atunci cand il fac, caci suna mai frumos, parca 😉

Pentru aceasta retetea originala, utilizam urmatoarele principii pentru a-l face pe domnul Açaí  cel mai sanatos si benefic corpului nostru:

  • omitem orice fel de lapte – va fi cremos pentru ca lasam murele/zmeura/afinele in congelator peste noapte
  • decoram cu fructe proaspete, menta, alte frunze verzi, ori (…favoritele mele) mere uscate, fulgi de cocos, si cacao nibs

Ca sa fie totul amuzant, nu stam sa ne pierdem vremea cu masuratori precise si consumatoare de energie. In schimb, vom pune in blender:

  • vreo cana de mure/zmeura/afine lasate la congelator peste noapte (ca sa ne fie bolul cremos)
  • o banana scoasa chiar din frigider
  • jumatate de avocado (sau chiar unul intreg daca nu aveti ce altceva sa faceti cu restul 🙂 )
  • niste scortisoara
  • cateva curmale (fara samburi haha!)
  • si ceva apa!

Mhmm, asta-i tot. Mixam, amestecam, mixam din nou, punem totul intr-un bol, decoram – cu migala, ori cu graba, daca-i multa foame, facem poza (totul se documenteaza, nimic nu se pierde!!) si-apoi mancam. Constient 😉

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 🙂
