The Purrfect Breakfast

For many years breakfast was something I regularly skipped, even though many experts suggest it’s the most important meal of the day. That only worked for so long and over time I would be crashing at work long before lunch time. So I started experimenting with breakfast.

A lot of people go the traditional way when it comes to morning eating… Cereals, toast, fruits, eggs & bacon and sandwiches tend to be on the menu. For me, carbs equal instant snooze button! I don’t follow a gluten free diet, however, one thing is certain: if I have pasta or bread, a couple of minutes later I’m only good for a nap. Forget about feeling energetic or focused.

I tried different combinations of food until I figured out the one best suited for me. One that actually boosts my metabolism and allows me to tackle each day’s challenges head on. Read More »

Can’t live without my coconut

On top of using it as a skin and hair moisturizer, I solely cook with organic coconut oil. Baking, frying, slow cooking, , you name it. In my household it’s the only thing that goes. I use a small amount of extra virgin olive oil to season salads and cooked vegetables but other than that, coconut oil is my healthy cooking partner in crime.

Considered a super food, Coconut Oil tastes amazing with everything and offers so many benefits!  Check out this article for A List of Reasons Why You Need Coconut Oil In Your Life.

Coconut Oil is easy to find and readily available in all natural health stores, with more and more conventional supermarkets starting to integrate it into stock.

Make sure to buy Organic to reap all the benefits!

On top of it’s antibacterial properties, coconut oil is known to help balance hormones, aid in weight loss and increase energy. I have personally experienced these benefits when I made the switch a few years back.

Have you tried it?

 

You are what you eat

I’m not really big on diets, I merely prefer to live a healthy lifestyle and to fill my bowl with real, nutritious and colorful foods that bring me joy on a daily basis!

As a rule of thumb, I avoid processed foods as much as possible. I avoid GMOs, MSG, Aspartame, most conventional oils except Olive Oil and try to maintain my meals balanced between acid and alkaline, always leaning more towards alkaline.

I buy local and organic as much as possible and enjoy fresh produce from my mom’s urban balcony permaculture experiments.

Healthy food makes me happy and I’m here to share the contents of my bowl with everyone, hoping it will offer inspiration 🙂

Cheers!
