Healthy Eats On Instagram : My Top Picks

They say that an imagine is worth a thousand words! I tend to agree. In today’s busy world eating healthy is definitely a lifestyle. It’s a choice that takes effort in terms of selecting the right foods and preparing them the right way, but it comes with Oh So Many rewards.

While most people know how to chop up a salad or boil a pot of pasta, we don’t always know which combinations go best together, we might not be aware of the nutritional benefits of certain foods, or simply lack inspiration when it comes to cooking on certain days.

Sometimes all it takes is a little help from your friends!  For me, it literally takes 30 seconds browsing my Instagram news feed for instant inspiration and often a bit of involuntary drooling. Watching mouthwatering dishes prepared by people I follow based on their healthy choices not only awakens my creativity but also fuels my passion and motivates me to keep spicing things up. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s also a wonderful way to connect and exchange tips & recipes with fellow clean eaters.

Head In The Clouds

IMG_20160625_164715.jpg

Have you ever noticed how every single skyscape, sunset or cloud cluster is absolutely unique? As if every day an artist decides to paint you a picture for pure contemplation, and that, since the dawn of time.

There is so much beauty to absorb with an endless number of magical symphonies. Colors, contrasts, depths and rays that waltz through the celestial panorama… always in motion, constantly animated.

How lucky are we to get a lifetime of original canvases free to appreciate from wherever we are? I get lost in their splendor. I get inspired daily. I feel thankful. I look forward to each new painting.

Whether you keep mental images or capture them on camera, don’t forget to look up every day!

A Healthy Time Out

As you might have noticed, it’s been a little while since my last post. This is not due to lack of inspiration or writer’s block. On the contrary, this is due to a voluntary time out. Regardless of our life situations, we all spend way too much time online these days connected to cyberspace as opposed to being connected to the land and each other. We’re online at work, at home and via mobile on the go. I truly believe that once in a while we need to just disconnect and replenish the old fashion way!

The Pursuit of Purpose

finding-your-life-purpose-journey-universe.jpg

A bit off my usual topic, this week’s daily prompt got me thinking and inspired the following blurbs… Next post shall definitely include a bowl 🙂  

Life without purpose is really just passing time. A countdown featuring good and bad times that leads towards an end, a transformation of what is known followed by stepping into the unknown. Regardless of whether you believe in life after death, I feel that purpose is the most valuable gift humans have been bestowed upon with. Purpose gives us meaning. It shapes us and allows us to grow. It offers us something to strive towards that both motivates and inspires. It makes true accomplishment possible.Read More »

Easy Kitchen Hack To Save You Cooking Time

Whether you’re a homemaker or a working gal (or fella), one thing is certain; if you eat healthy, if you have little ones to feed or if you simply just eat 3+ times a day, you must spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen. And wouldn’t you agree that every time you get your mind set on a recipe or decide to just wing it and create something original, there’s at least 10-20 minutes prep time for washing and cutting veggies, preparing seasoning, etc.?

Now what if I told you that by adopting a simple habit you could save that time or at least cut it by half every time you cook. Doesn’t that sound appealing?Read More »

Grounding Your Way To Well-Being

In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to share with you one of my healthy practices that not only improves my overall well-being, but also helps me stay connected to Mother Earth.

Grounding or Earthing generally refers to the practice of connecting to the Earth’s surface electrical field and absorbing good electrons into the body through direct contact with the soil. Simply put, it’s standing, running or walking barefoot on the ground. Something humans have done for centuries naturally, until the invention of modern shoes. From then on, the umbilical cord was severed and slowly but surely we started suffering the consequences without even realizing it.Read More »

Eat Once, Regrow For Ever

People often ask me if buying Organic and mostly clean healthy food costs me an arm and a leg. And while at regular supermarkets Organic food does cost more, it is not necessarily the case in specialty stores or giants like Costco. Remember, the more demand there is for a product the more supply there will be. Same goes for Organic and healthy food. As people continue to shift towards what’s good for them, the industry will have no choice but to follow and adjust. This means better prices as well.

In the meantime, there are definitely steps you can take to save money while improving your health & well-being, which you might actually greatly enjoy! I know I do.

The Beauty Of Regrowing Your Fruits & Veggies

Last year I was stunned when my mom showed me all the vegetables she grew on her terrace. It was literally a garden full of fresh produce such as cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, celery, carrots, delicious herbs, etc. Pretty much a small grocery store section worth of delicious organic produce ready for the picking.Read More »

Fostering The Inner Child & The Importance Of Playtime

childhood_joy_02

If you were born prior to the year 2000 chances are you had a playful childhood. After the new millennium, things took a bit of a turn and there’s a whole new generation of youth that has spent their early years staring at a screen or connected to a virtual world. Either way, we all grow up. And one of the casualties of growing up often seems to be the inner child. After all, adulthood is associated with responsibility, caring for others, developing careers, networking, acquisitions, important decisions, serious paperwork, tight schedules, daily stress and so on…

So what happens to the inner child once we reach the adult stage? Does it just fade away? Does it get buried under paperwork? Or is it that we simply no longer have time to foster it?

Dinner & The Golden Ratio

Dinnertime is probably when I have my most sustainable meal of the day. At this stage “all you can eat” applies so I make sure to pack my bowl with nutritious contents that feed every cell in my body. Over the years, I’ve figured out a golden ratio that seems to have the most positive effect on my digestion, weight, energy levels and overall satisfaction! Read More »
