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.

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!

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 »

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 »
