How food can make you happy, healthy AND beautiful!

Is the term “foodie” lame yet?

Social media talks about healthy food obsession for a good while now, and especially in many trendy parts of Vancouver the simple purchase of kale can make you look too “hipster” – despite its obvious benefits, nevertheless these attitudes I would like to state one thing: Food is awesome!

I don’t really care about trends, but one of my best friends is becoming a holistic nutritionist right now – and her happy attitude towards nutrient rich food and healthy recipes was completely inspiring!

Day by day we are putting up with so much stress – work, life, emotions, PMS, decisions, errands, responsibilities, … – the power that we require from our body can sometimes be more than we feel we have – especially if we are feeding our body crap! So why not eating clean & healthy in the first place, giving our bodies strength, boosting our immune system and actually feeling FABULOUS eating? It really doesn’t have to feel like a diet.

When I grew up we ate just food with mostly natural ingredients, and I developed a love for good food & eating – and I  never to diet. We did eat bread & pasta – the whole grain kind. Plain yogurt with fruit for the sweet tooth. We drank a LOT of water & tea, not soda. It’s the little things.

Today, I make sure every meal that I make is a colorful variant of veggies, grains, seeds, and protein. I never want to have to ‘diet’, and I want to love food! And if you eat clean & healthy, scratch useless sugar, drink plenty of water and work out a little here and there, you can even have that chocolate pudding or eat some cookies… it doesn’t matter.

Let food make you happy & beautiful!!

Hope I could inspire a few of you :) Here are a few photos of my everyday brunch, dinner or snack.
