Kale sweet Kale

I’ve been waiting for the Kale season to kick in for a long time now.
In Sweden Kale is popular during the Holidays, that means that EVERY grocery store carries Kale this time of year, and they usually have organic kale too. So It’s an understatement to say that I’m overdosing on Kale these days. I’m basically starting my day with a Kales smoothie and ending it with Kale chips from the dehydrator.

Eating Right?

Usually when you have bodily issues people ask you, are you eating right?
Personally I don’t believe that there is one way that fits all, but I definitely believe that we have a personal right or wrong way. The trick is to figure out what works for you!

I thrive on a Plantbased Vegan diet, and of course I advocate this way of living due to it’s numerous health benefits, the fact that it doesn’t hurt this planet, and that it promotes equal rights for all living beings.

I used to be very sick, and I’m still struggling with some weight issues due to some chemical unbalances, but this way of living is really helping me to balance my body and mind, and it brings my soul peace. People often ask me what I eat, so I thought I would share a picture and some recipes of what I eat.
raw food

MAIN COURSE:
A Sallad.

Turmeric, Nature’s Yellow Gold


bild 2

My healing process has been long and slow at times. But I really do feel that I’m getting closer to the finish line… Especially since I started drinking smoothies and juices with turmeric.  It makes all my cells radiate and vibrate. Research shows that Turmeric is effective at treating depression, and it may even be more effective than some of the most common anti-depressant drugs currently on the market. Curcumin, a derivative of turmeric, is also known to battle cancer and inflammations. bild 3
I wanted to create a smoothie that was super healthy and still delicious. So I decided to combine turmeric with the Sea buckthorn berry.

Beet Smoothie

I’m in a beet flow at the moment. I eat at least 1-2 raw beets every day.
Did you know that in recent lab studies on human tumor cells, betanin pigments from beets have been shown to lessen tumor cell growth. The tumor cell types tested in these studies include tumor cells from colon, stomach, nerve, lung, breast, prostate and testicular tissue.
How awesome is that?!! If you haven’t tried beets in you smoothie before, the time is now!
20140317-184042.jpg
RECIPE:
1 big beet
1 large sweet apple or 2 small ones
2-3 cm of ginger
1 cup of coconut water

(If you want this smoothie to be even smoother, juice the beet and apple and add a ripe banana)

INSTRUCTIONS:
Peel the beet, then mix everything together in a high speed blender. Remember to use organic and preferably local produce, for the earth and for your beautiful body.

If you are looking for one new healthy habit this is it.

Wishing you a creative day.
