Mixed up raw and no raw food

10 Sep

Hi folks

today I just want to chat with you about a  raw foods diet… All of us know that raw food diet is made up of fresh, whole, unrefined, living, plant-based foods: fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds, which are consumed in their natural state, without cooking or steaming. Fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens not only contain sustainable amounts of carbohydrates, protein and fat, they have them in the percentages, ratios, and quality that are optimum for human health. When people integrate a proper raw diet with other healthful living practices, they rarely, if ever, develop weight control problems, chronic or even short-term illnesses.
personally I went raw 5 years ago but also I’d like to eat cooked food like smashed potato or tofu scramble..or why not pizza, pasta…Obviously I don’t indulge to much in this kind of dishes but I wanna be free to choose what my body in that specific time it’s reclaiming. And also I like so much to mixed up different kind of food raw and cooked
Today I’d like to share with you a great dish for a Friday dinner: tofu scramble with smashed potato and salad
Very easy and super super cozy 🙂

Article plus energizing smoothie

The way you start your morning can make or break the rest of your day. The SAVERS acronymn reminds us of six habits or rituals that can improve our morning routines.

The routine comes from Hal Elrod, author of “The Miracle Morning,” and in an interview with James Altucher. The six parts of the routine—silence, affirmations, visualization, exercise, reading, and scribing—can improve our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual help. They don’t have to take a lot of time, but can get you into the right frame of mind for a great day.
