Oh hey there, Spring! 

My colourful lunch to compliment this sunny day! 
I’ve made my tempeh croutons again! This time I marinated it with some dried italian herbs. The base is romaine lettuce, crunchy kelp noodles, parsley, shredded carrots, and purple cabbage lightly dressed with basil infused olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon.

Spring clean your body with colourful raw foods!

PS: if you haven’t heard of kelp noodles they are a great substitute for pasta or rice, you can mix them into a stir fry, or in a soup. They are very low in calories so make sure you eat them with plenty of vegetables and a protein. Raw or cooked, they are very versatile as they have no taste so they pick up the flavour of whatever they are mixed with. Just rinse under water, pat dry and incorporate them with your favourite sauces. Get creative!

Lunch at the office. I think I’ve finally got the hang of making tempeh friggin’ tasty. 

My motto is to get excited about eating healthy!

It shouldn’t feel like a chore. You shouldn’t feel like you are depriving yourself, EVER. It shouldn’t be made as a temporary choice. 

It should be a GRADUAL EVOLUTION to your greatest health ever. 

It takes baby steps to incorporate new foods that you may have never tried before. Keep an open mind to try new things and respect your body by CHOOSING food that will build it, instead of destroy it. Not because you think you SHOULD. But because it gets you EXCITED to eat these foods. 

CHOOSE to be WELL. You deserve it.

Save your lemon rinds for toxic free and inexpensive cleaning! 
Lemons are natural disinfectants and smell wonderful. ▫️ Pop them in the dishwasher in the cutlery tray (or stab them on like I did) to give the dishes and the dishwasher a sparkle! My friend’s Polish grandma taught me this so you know it’s legit. ▫️Boil a couple rinds in a kettle with water and it will help to get rid of the calcium and mineral build up. Let it sit for a few hours or overnight before rinsing. ▫️Scrub your laminate counter tops with lemon rinds and then wipe off with a damp cloth with warm water.

Could your perfume be toxic? What you spray on your skin everyday could contain both known and unknown perfume ingredients that can impact your health and those around you… mild to severe. These health risks include contact allergies, respiratory irritation, and hormonal reactions. 

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics commissioned a study of perfume ingredients that reveal dozens of unreported chemicals in perfumes.

I was beyond thrilled to find this company called L’Aromatica Perfume on @iheartscout’s IG page and made the trip yesterday to pick myself up an all natural, botanically based perfume! ATTN Guys: They’ve got some sexy masculine scents for you too. 
What I absolutely love is that the scents are not overbearing and suffocating like the conventional perfumes/colognes that you can smell yards away!
