3 Superfood Vegan Protein Powders to Upgrade Your Lattes

By 8

Vegan or vegetarian diet is not just about eliminating meat and animal products. Learning to balance your nutrient intake, and especially the proteins, takes time, and in-between you may experience different health issues such as losing hair, a sluggish metabolism, low energy levels, frail nails, or hormone imbalance. For me, I had most of them, and while I’m still struggling with a slow thyroid, I try to nourish my body with….

The Hello Glow Book, Photographed by Me

By 8

As you may have noticed, my postings have been quite rare lately, and this is only because this year was incredibly busy. My collaborations as a food and beauty photographer were very fruitful, and the one I am most proud of is doing the photography for Stephanie Gerber’s Hello Glow book. This collaboration taught me a lot of things, both professionally and personally. Stephanie is an amazingly talented woman who inspired me not only to be a better photographer, but also to change my beauty routine and…

The Simplest 1-Day Detox

By 15

It’s been many years since I’ve overindulged the heavy way during the holidays because I eat healthily most of the time. I’ve learned to choose the correct food combinations and balance the quantities so that I never end up overwhelmed by my food. It’s a matter of control and it comes with practice. And with time, you learn to listen to your body and mind, and not your instincts telling you that another slice of cake won’t do you any harm. Indulging is a great thing if done in moderation, and moderation is also the reason why …

I want to enjoy the holidays, but still maintain a balanced state of mind and a healthy diet. How can I do this, when despite its magic and beautiful spirit, Christmas is actually the time of overindulgence?

Extra socializing, sipping one more drink, or having one more chocolate chip cookie makes us hectic and unbalances our immune system. It’s no wonder that we find ourselves with colds or headaches during the holidays. For keeping your body happy and balancing your energy you need a bit of …

5 Things I’ve Learned From Dealing With My Breast Problems

By 11

I see my body as a special mechanism that works permanently to keep me healthy. Over the years, I learned to listen to all its signals to know right away when something is going wrong. While inadequate nourishment, environmental estrogens, and low self-esteem are the main problems that hijack its activity, women’s bodies have their own special ways of transmitting the signals. There is a high incidence of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and breast cysts because …

Healthy Easter Recipes Roundup

By 2

Choosing healthy for Easter might seem like a mission impossible, but there’s always a lot of inspiration from bloggers and magazines to keep you on the right track. I like to save my favorite recipes in bookmarks and browse them when Easter is approaching to get inspired and create something new or even making some of these healthy dishes. This year I also created an Easter Pinterest board to keep everything in one place. Farmers’ market is the best place to shop now, because all the spring greens – nettles, wild garlic, spinach, asparagus, parsley, watercress – are in season. Remember that holidays aren’t about stressing out with complicated dishes, but spending time with family and friends, chilling and …
