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.

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!
