As I am still on and off my detox since the end of 2018 (when my digestion collapsed completely), so I can't really share much of the delicious, gorgeous looking plates as I mostly eat raw or really simple boring mono meals. But today is the first day after 3 days juice cleanse followed by 6 days of fruits / veggies / greens / with a bit of nuts detox so for my lunch I cooked healthy delicious lentils with spinach, roasted Jerusalem artichokes, and sweet potatoes with excepti
Or why I called my recently posted smoothie - Super Smoothie. It is simple, it has probably the most nutrient dense content possible to achieve in one smoothie without compromising the taste too much. I have done little research, or it's more like my everyday life research, I read, take notes, read more, analise and make conclusions. I know by now that Whole Food Plant Based Diet is the healthiest diet (or lifestyle) on earth, it prevents and reverses most of the chronic dise
Oh India India.. sometimes unexpected and full of pleasant surprises and sometimes very stereotypical!
This one is not going to be only about the food, it's about everything. About experience of YTTC (Yoga Teachers Training) in ashram, about traveling as a solo woman and Ayurvedic Clinic as well as food of course. So I do expect this post to be slightly longer than usual. So my journey (both spiritual and actual) started in Samyak Yoga Ashram with 9 other yoginis wanting to
Aloha again! So here’s how my Big Island’s adventure started: ‘My life is crazy and I love it! Here's my almost private jet (10 seat 💺 air plane Maui to Big Island - picture below) for the price of normal flight! But that's not all. After I arrived I tried to figure out how to get to the town (if you don't drive in US, it's not easy), so one of the pilots offered me a ride to the town! Awesome 👏! After we just left airport we saw the car accident and a guy was running from
After couple of hikes here in Peru, experiencing unexpected, stunning views, camping in minus temperature, getting altitude sick, taking some beautiful pictures I have decided to write few words about this experience. OK I have to confess, I have few addictions, which food (of course), traveling, tattoos and of course mountains. I know people love sea, relaxed sunbathing in a beach, I do too. I really love surfing as well and later in this trip I'm really hoping to properly n
Okay so where do I start? It's been exactly a month when I gave up my comfortable office chair in huge corporate architecture company to go traveling, explore the world, to do some woofing, to meet likeminded people, to practice yoga as well as do Yoga Teahcers Training and enjoying all what I love. And you know what, it feels totally awesome, I feel relaxed, I don't need to worry that I will not please the big bosses, I don't need to worry about deadlines, which usually are
I just found this picture which I have taken a week or two before I left traveling, after my great discovery about mushrooms. I have never thought of mushrooms as a food which has high nutritional value. I actually thought other way around. I though mushrooms have nothing good in them! But I totally underestimated them! According to Dr. Joel Furhman consuming mushrooms regularly is associated with decreased risk of breast, stomach, and colorectal cancers.
In one recent Chine
This one is going to be a short one ;). So I just wanted to tell that I went traveling I am in Peru right now in a small village called Caraz surrounded by the mountains pretty much 360 degrees. It's beautiful in here! I had few trips to local market and that reminded me how different is each place of the world in terms of fresh produce. So you literally never get board with what is offered. It just reminded me how blessed I'm being vegan and having all this variety of fruits
A lot of experts, medical doctors, healthy lifestyle promoters are talking about it. The mysterious vitamin D. A lot of people are worried that they are not getting enough and getting vitamin D deficient. So what is vitamin D and what is the natural source of it? Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin, we are getting exposing our skin to the sun. The sun acts on the skin and converts cholesterol to the vitamin D and it's the only natural way of getting it. If you think you are lac
It's just a tiny fraction of what we actually eat, it's just one of the kind products! And you won't believe what you can make out of those whole grains, veggies, seeds, nuts and fruits 🍃🍎🍐🍅🍆🌰🍃! Then I started eating purely plant based I have discovered so much more new ingredients, which I now experiment with in my kitchen and create super tasty recipes!! Being vegan is being super creative in what you eat! And no we are not rabbits and we not only eat carrots and we

We need to talk about fermentation… Quite recently I had a conversation about fermented foods and it’s benefits. I knew that it’s really important for our guts, does a lot for digestion, but did not realised that it’s actually one of the true reasons why we are healthy, with normal BMI and live longer. Fermented foods provide our guts with bacteria, little microorganisms which helps to balance our metabolism, improve your immune system function, help slow or reverse some dise
This green legume is loaded with A, B1, B6, C, and a suppressed serving of K. One cup of boiled green peas has 46% of your RDA of vitamin K1, known for maintaining bone health and helping blood to clot to prevent bleeding. Peas are high in fiber and low in fat and contain no cholesterol. Plus, they’re a good source of vegetable protein.
Did you know that a 100-calorie serving (about 3/4 cup) has more protein than ¼ cup of almonds or a tablespoon of peanut butter? #vegan #veg
In ancient times, asparagus was renowned as an aphrodisiac. Regardless that this succulent, savoury vegetable contains a stimulating blend of nutrients, it also is fantastic food for your health. High in vitamin K and folate, asparagus is extremely well balanced. We cannot call it superfood, but it is definitely among most nutritious vegetables. Asparagus is high in anti-inflammatory nutrients as well as it provides a wide variety of antioxidant nutrients, including vitamin C

However consumed in large quantities beetroot can cause diarrhea. It helps to regulate bowel movements and to
I was thinking another day what I am truly passionate about. What I would talk about if I have an opportunity? What in overheard conversation would intrigue me to interrupt? I do like to talk about fascinating brutalist architecture, beautiful chairs, nice design of ACE hotel in Schoreditch. I truly do enjoy it. But what really fires me up is talking about healthy lifestyle, more precisely healthy food. I have probably thought half of me colleagues and friends what’s good to
