The Simplest 1-Day Detox

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 …

Alkaline Green Soup

Last month I traveled a lot, and often, there were times when I didn’t manage to keep my diet on the usual path. The meal hours were changed, the quality of ingredients differed, and sometimes I indulged in some refined sugar treats – all these confused my body and it reacted with an acidic environment.

It wasn’t a really difficult trail, but for us, as beginners, it was quite a challenge, but we fully enjoyed it! We used to visit the mountains just to relax with a coffee in beautiful surroundings, but from now on…

Nourishing Vegan Milks – 3 Ways

During my forty days of a vegan diet before Easter, I discovered a new passion – vegan milks. I tried hundreds of combinations, played with ingredients, experimented with flavors, and I realized that you don’t need cutting-edge technology to obtain smooth, dense, and creamy vegan milks. You can make awesome liquids with a normal blender, using the right quantities of soaked ingredients. Nuts or seeds + water = vegan milk – it is that easy! If you hit the right consistency, all you have to do is …

3 Restoring Spring Juices

The sad news about Jess’s passing left me perplexed and turned my beliefs upside down. She was one of the people I really admired and from which I learned a lot. When I first became interested in a natural way of living, I found so much inspiration on her site, “The Wellness Warrior”. Moments like these leave you confused, and so many questions start bouncing into your head trying to …
