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, […]
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 got matcha, threw some berry concoctions in there, too. Go ahead and treat your sight – plenty of smooth-ieee sexiness to be taken in.
Açaí – coconut water instead of vegan milk, no granola, no nut butters, extra toasted coconut and cacao nibs
Smoothies – coconut water instead of vegan milk, sweetened with dates, no nut butter
Eats – gluten free bread, raw vegan banoffee pie, quinoa salad
Extra extra – curcuma tea, plenty of mangoes, cute baby watermelon, banana/taro vegan ice cream
We’ve gotta take good care of that pretty face of yours, so here’s a bunch of inspo to keep you smiling and shining and glowing and stunning!! BATH Without a trace a doubt – the best natural (organic, essential oils, fair trade, etc, etc.) soap […]
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 […]
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 😉
Majoritatea usilor se deschid spre exterior – multumile tind sa se repezeasca, iar in cazul unei urgente, o usa ce se deschide spre exterior elimina o posibila congestie. Insa, usa catre noi se deschide spre interior. Adica, opulenta, sanatatea, fericirea sosesc in viata noastra printr-o […]
