Açaí madness – that’s what April has been about. This bowl of goodness is basically sustaining my existence for now, so be ready for a really consistent açaí presence in the feed below. Not too shabby in the smoothie category either, eh? We’ve got taro, we’ve […]
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
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
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 🙂
After extensive research (a.k.a. daily visits and hefty bills into my local Verde Bendito) I can successfully report on the fascinating world of matchalicious drinks and healthy nibs in Mexico: 1) LOTS OF RICH MEXICANS – like, every time I’d go, be it at 9 […]
Healing and growing are like peeling an onion: the deeper you go, the more you’ll cry. So let not this process dismantle you, and just now, surrender the need to understand.
Hands up if – whenever something beautiful, loving, and unexpectedly good happens to you, you instantly feel like like you’ll lose it, or have it taken away.
That is FEAR, beloved, and I am facing it these days, too! Now you can see why I thought of sharing 3 FAST techniques that help us stay strong and centred in the face of deep-seated fears and hurtful thoughts 🙂
1) First Generation Thoughts: this is when you walk down the street, in your little bubble of fear, and start noticing things – CAR, BINS, FENCE, STREET, STOPLIGHT. These are all First Generation Thoughts.
Then you think: EXPENSIVE CAR, I’LL NEVER AFFORD IT; GORGEOUS HOUSE, MINE IS NOT AS GOOD, I MUST BE LESS THAN, HMM, PEOPLE DON’T LIKE MY TASTE, NOBODY LOVES ME. These are all Second Generation Thoughts. When you get to Second Generation Thoughts, it means you’ve started inflicted judgement, and therefore created suffering. So we pause, we breathe, and we GO BACK TO First Generation Thoughts. We train our mind like this everyday. Peace restored!
2) Remember Your Divine Nature: and know that you’ve got God, or Life, or the Universe by your side. When you are facing your lover, fearing you’re not worth loving or fighting for, when you are vulnerably showcasing yourself in front of an employer, when you have to argue your case and take a stand for yourself, remember you are nothing but Precious Light; the Greatest Miracle in the World reminds us how:
‘…beginning with that single sperm from your father’s four hundred million, through the hundreds of genes in each of the chromosomes from your mother and father, I could have created three hundred thousand billion humans, each different from the other.
But who did I bring forth?
You! One of a kind. Rarest of the rare. A priceless treasure, possessed of qualities in mind and speech and movement and appearance and actions as no other who has ever lived, lives, or shall live.
Be yourself. Show your rarity to the world and they will shower you with gold.’ – Og Mandino
3) Listen to some radically soul jubilating songs! Because every now and then it all gets a bit too much, and all you’ve gotta do is still your mind 🙂 May I suggest this for the heavy hearted, this for the love birds out there, and this for those of you in need of some feel-good energy 🙂

Anyone who’s met me knows that I have a soft spot for avocados, unnecessary Yakinori take away, totally-not-vegan sea food, salmon and Italian ice-cream… I am flawed and have recently embarked on a healing journey towards observing (without criticising) and living more simply (letting go of […]
The uber-confusing, ever-cleansing and emotionally-challenging rollercoaster that was September has eventually come to an end, so here’s to a splendid October – characterized by abundance, a great deal of unexpected resources coming through and just an overall bountiful four weeks ahead of us. I am dwelving into October […]
Just back from an eye-opening trip to Malta, where I hardly ever ate vegan – and these are some of the things I’ve learned – cause all things (disasters included!) are lessons that god would have us learn 😉
Eating processed, acid forming foods (animal derived things that is) means your body will take a hit. And the cleaner you eat the sooner that hit strikes. I made it through 5 days of seafood/dairy/sugar-filled/gluten-full foods before coming down with an incredibly inflamed throat (because of stagnating acid lymph the body couldn’t get rid off), constant eye twitching , muscle aches and wavering dizziness.
Done with food for the foreseeable future 😅😅😅 #TudyBoy #vegan #feedfeed #dailymenu #food #foodporn #veganfood #healthy #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthyliving #buzzfeast #f52grams #vegansofig #whatveganseat #healthyfoodporn #plantbased #poweredbyplants #breakfast #fruit #malta #beautifulhealth #beautifulcuisines #eatclean #cleanfood #cleaneating #nourish #instafood #veganfoodshare #nanaicecream
Sticking to even a trace of your daily health routine (for me, that was fruit for breakfast, my morning stretches and daily dose of psyllium husk) + being exposed to plenty of sunlight (and benefiting from that precious vitamin D) will definitely help in withstanding a day or two of troubled eating. But with all that acid forming food coming in, the crash is bound to happen nonetheless.
My soul is happy and approves of this 😌😌😌 #TudyBoy #vegan #feedfeed #dailymenu #food #foodporn #veganfood #healthy #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthyliving #buzzfeast #f52grams #vegansofig #whatveganseat #healthyfoodporn #plantbased #poweredbyplants #breakfast #fruit #malta #beautifulhealth #beautifulcuisines #eatclean #cleanfood #cleaneating #nourish #instafood #veganfoodshare #nanaicecream
My hunch is that – out of all shitty stuff I had for lunch and dinner during this recent infamous week – gluten was the most detrimental one. It’s just Mother Intuition sending off some revealing vibes – but I’ve come to believe it more than anything else!
Most non-vegan week of my recent life 😓😓😓 #TudyBoy #vegan #feedfeed #dailymenu #food #foodporn #veganfood #healthy #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthyliving #buzzfeast #f52grams #vegansofig #whatveganseat #healthyfoodporn #plantbased #poweredbyplants #breakfast #fruit #malta #beautifulhealth #beautifulcuisines #eatclean #cleanfood #cleaneating #nourish #instafood #veganfoodshare #nanaicecream
Eating out can be tricky, especially when you’re a tender soul that deeply loves food and friends who lure you into committing deadly vegan sins :)) But fear not, cause this sweet lil’ post right here will give you a quick mental checklist to help navigate […]
