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.

Hope you enjoy the list and that you will be as inspired as I am 🙂Read More »

Cool As A Cucumber

Now that Summer is just around the corner and that the temperature is rising (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), I find myself craving hydration and looking for lighter dishes to prepare. Don’t get me wrong, I am absolutely ecstatic about the prolonged hours of sun and all the happiness that comes along with beautiful warm weather. I just need a lot more freshness than usual and I’m assuming that you might as well. What better occasion to introduce you to one of my favorite Summer Salads?

It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be an amazing side dish to pretty much any meal as much as a healthy snack you can turn to at the first sign of cravings or dehydration 🙂 Read More »

What do you think?

power-of-gratitude-

I’m still new to blogging and so far it’s been a blast, thanks to YOU the readers!! On this beautiful day, while I’m preparing to go to the park and Foster My Inner Child as well as perform some much-needed Grounding, I just wanted to share my gratitude with everyone that has stopped by, read, liked, commented, followed & supported me  on this journey over the past few weeks. THANK YOU!

I also wanted to let you all know that I plan to post a series of healthy recipes over the next few weeks… I mean, that’s what Joy In A Bowl is primarily about. Along with other healthy inspirations that bring me joy, outside of a bowl 🙂

So as I truly value your feedback, I wanted to ask you, the readers, which recipes you’d like me to share. I post daily on Instagram and it already features a collection of meals and dishes I love to prepare. I invite you to look through my little collection and nominate what you would like to see featured here first. It will give me a great perspective on the order of my upcoming posts.

Love ❤

Kelp Noodles: How To Prepare & Enjoy This Super Food

I’m crazy about all things “Noodle”. Asian cuisine has long been at the top of my culinary inspiration. I absolutely adore noodle dishes, exotic vegetables, different textures and colors as well as the decadent spices present in most Asian meals. However, since I began avoiding MSG at all cost, my repertoire of Asian restaurants where I used to be a regular  diminished significantly. I truly believe in clean eating so I set out to find healthy alternatives to my favorites.

A couple of years back I tasted Korean Kelp Noodles for the first time and instantly fell in love. Since then, I’ve found local supplies and experimented with a variety of dishes featuring this tasty super food. Everything from fresh noodle salads to elaborate Kelp Noodle Stir Fries. I have to admit that I prefer them cooked so I most often use them in my Asian Fusion soups, stir fries and sautées.

What I’ve made so far 🙂

Along with being a great gluten-free substitute for pasta, Kelp Noodles are also Fat Free! One of my favorite Alkaline foods, kelp provides many health benefits in both supplement and comestible forms. Check out Kelp Benefits: Health From The Sea for more details on all it has to offer.Read More »
