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 …

Super Healthy Breakfast Sandwich plus 3 Fabulous Facts About Avocados

Avocado is never missing from my fridge. No matter how uninspired I feel one day, if I have an avocado, I know I will be able to put together a delicious meal. In salads, on toast, as a dip, on top of curries and stews, in raw desserts, as a sauce for veggie burgers, in smoothies, with eggs, or just as it is, simple, with sea salt and lemon, avocado is among my favorite ingredients. Creamy, dense, and unctuous, this fruit is a real powerhouse when it comes to nutrients, and has incredible benefits for our health, although some people tend to avoid it given …

A Blueberry Raw Cheesecake For A Special Valentine

Like every other beautiful thing in our lives, love is definitely worth celebrating more than just once a year. Valentine’s Day is not just a celebration of love, but it’s also one of hope in everything that is right and beautiful. Over here, we have only celebrated Valentine’s Day for about ten years, but we have the lovely tradition of Dragobete, a rural feast dating back thousands of years ago.

The Complete Nourishing Winter Bowl

You can combine any of your favorite ingredients, as long as you make sure the bowl has a little bit of …

Although I hate being in a hurry, there are days when I simply don’t have a choice. You have to get to different places, meet lots of people, and most often, you end up skipping your wake-up routine and your morning workout, getting dehydrated, and eating junk food in a hurry.

Decadent Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast – Vegan and Gluten-Free

This recipe might be just what you need if you are living with a picky person when it comes to food, also comes in handy if you’re trying to introduce healthy ingredients into your child’s diet. It is very difficult to prepare a breakfast rich in minerals and healthy fats, especially for somebody who doesn’t really care about the nutrition and prefers something delicious, like my boyfriend does. I could give him all the scientific reasons why eating this or that ingredient is good for his health, but if it doesn’t taste delicious, he won’t eat it. For me, a simple quinoa pudding with some honey, nuts, and seeds is a great way to start the day. For him, I have to reinvent the whole picture and make it really appealing. What does the trick? …
