Oh sweet potatoes! If you are a fan of sweet potatoes you're going to love this recipe... 

Not only they are delicious, they are high in fiber, jam packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, potassium, calcium and other nutrients that act as antioxidants that give them anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

So, if you fancy a nutritious, creamy, delicious smoothie that tastes like dessert you'd wanna give this recipe a g...

I am quite sure that 99% of my readers have experienced what I like to call the ‘Post winter/weekend/holiday drama’ at least once in their lives. It’s when you wake up ‘the morning after’ (whether you stepped on the scale or not) and feel bad recalling everything you've eaten. Maybe you’ve gained some extra weight or you simply feel heavy, lethargic and unhealthy. This is an open invitation for the little voice in our head to jump in and play it’s little dr...

Who doesn't need a bit of comfort on a cold snowy morning?

'Comfort Food' has gotten a negative connotation these days with all the talk around emotional eating.

I am definitely a big believer in conscious eating and not 'eating your emotions', but what if we look at comfort food as a conscious act of self care? If it comes from a place of eating intuitively, with intention, listening to what your body wants... 

Also, just to make things clear - COMF...

Isn't chocolate and cherry the best combo?

Raw cacao and cherries are both high antioxidant rich foods. Antioxidants reduce the effects of free radicals (which play a major role in disease formation) and promote and protect healthy cells, which means slower aging, healthful youthful skin, longer life spam and disease prevention. 

So how do you feel about a HEALTHY breakfast that also tastes like dessert ?

That's a question I keep getting.

The answer is pretty straight forward - BOTH.

But, and there is a BUT...:

  • Not all juices & smoothies are made equal, meaning - they are not all  necessarily healthy (even if they are green).

  • There is a time and place for a smoothie and there is a time and a place for a juice

So let's break it down.

Smoothies are made from fresh fruits and vegetables. As opposed to juicing, with blending the fiber remains in tact with...

Most of us humans are taught to equate food with success, we view food as a reward from a very young age. So each time we exercise or managed to deliver a project on time we indulge ourselves in a big scoop of ice cream cause we feel like we've earned it. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with eating ice cream every now and then, as long as its a conscious decision, as long as we don't feed this mechanism of rewarding ourselves with food.

A few months ago I started experiencing acid reflux symptoms. My doctor prescribed me with proton pump inhibitors, which I had no intentions taking, not at least till I tried treating it naturally. It just didn't make sense to me to take a medicine that is used to treat people who have symptoms related to poor lifestyle habits, such as smoking, eating too much processed food, too much coffee, alcohol, sugar, stress... You get the point - non of which I fit...
