wishing you a happy friday and here is a post to share a couple of care tips about how to soothe your nervous system, as noted in an email by Dr Libby i just read on thursday morning 🕊 i hope sharing the post and care tips could be helpful and please note all of the words in the post were written by Dr Libby from her email and cited as carefully as i could. a couple of the tips noted include acknowledge (acknowledge any kinds of anxious feelings which you could be feeling), accept (accept anxious feelings) and amp up (amp up your deep breaths from your diaphragm and intake of fresh and whole foods with a lot of healthy and helpful nutrients) and Dr Libby also encourages you to maybe question how your body could be trying to communicate a helpful message to you (through anxious feelings) and to also take such good care of your precious self.
Here is a post to share a recipe for a fresh fruit juice made with fresh ginger, orange, apples, lemon, fejoas, pineapple and fresh mint, made in a juice fountain 🕊 I bought a juice fountain juicer by Breville a couple of weeks ago to help to look after health as much as possible, and hope the fruit juice recipe could be helpful in case you love fresh fruits a lot too and could have a juicer at home too or be hoping to be able to buy one soon 🌸 I created the fresh juice recipe with just a couple of fresh fruits and ginger we could buy at our local fruit shop, and some fresh mint from our garden at home, and hope you could be able to find the ingredients too, close by to where you are from 🕊
Here is a post about a couple of organic, wholefood beauty bars made by nutra organics (@nutraorganics) I just bought from a natural shop called natural things nz (@naturalthingsnz) to try, and hope could be helpful. Nutra organics are a beautiful organic beauty care and wellbeing company who are based in australia, and who create a number of different kinds of natural and organic nutritional products, which help to look after your health and wellbeing (and skin) as much as possible, from the inside out. The organic beauty bars are called collagen beauty bars, and come in a couple of different flavours, including vanilla berry and salted cacao maca 🕊🌸
Here is a post to share a second Q and a with Danijela (@healthyalways) a kind, qualified and registered nutritionist from feel fresh nutrition (@feelfreshnutrition), who is from nz 🕊 Danijela has a beautiful blog and Instagram page with a lot of colourful photos, where she shares a lot of healthy recipes, health and wellness care tips and inspiration ! she loves healthy foods, cooking, baking and creating, and is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition, healthy foods and the connection between nutrition, health and wellness 🌸 a couple of questions I thought of to ask Danijela are about nutrition and self care tips for looking after your skin, and I hope the Q and a post could be helpful in case you are curious about or interested a lot in nutrition, and in self care and looking after yourself as much as possible.
Here is a post to share a couple of nutritional tips for looking after your skin as much as possible (and for reducing acne in case you have oily or acne prone skin) 🕊 the tips are carefully noted in a post by urban herbalist, a healthy and wellbeing hub who are noted to include naturopaths, herbalists, a nutritionist and a pharmicist and who are based in auckland, nz 🌸 a couple of the nutrition tips noted include cut out sugar, increase fibre, avoid dairy, eat more omega 3, get more vitamin D, get more zinc and take probiotics and hope noting the tips could be helpful !
Here is a post to share a simple and easy to make recipe for a summer drink, made with just a couple of natural ingredients, including fresh lemons, limes and fresh ginger 🕊 my cousin Pete carefully chose a lime tree from a plant nursery where he and his family work just a couple of years ago (in 2016) and there are a lot of limes growing on the lime tree in our garden 🌸 I often make the summer drink with fresh lemons and limes from the trees in our garden at home to help to keep as hydrated as possible, and hope the summer drink recipe could be helpful in case it is warm and sunny where you are from too, or in case you love fresh fruits a lot too.
Here is a post to share a recipe for summer peaches, with fresh honey and chopped almonds I sometimes make in the summer, when there are a lot of beautiful different kinds of ripe peaches (golden, pink) from countryside orchards 🕊🌸 for the recipe you would just need a couple of ripe peaches, fresh honey and whole natural almonds, and you could also include creamy yoghurt and any other kind of fruit you enjoy, or a different kind of fruit in case you cannot find any peaches close by to where you are (could also include strawberries, watermelon, oranges, bananas, blueberries).
Here is quite an easy and simple plant based recipe for quinoa, made with fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper and olive oil, with roasted and fresh veggies. I often make the recipe for lunch if I can and the recipe has just a couple of ingredients you could hopefully find in your garden or at your local shop or fruit and veggie market, including quinoa, fresh lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper, veggies to roast, fresh veggies and fresh herbs 🕊🌸 I am also hoping to be as plant based as possible until Christmas, to help to feel as light and healthy as possible, and to be eco friendly and look after the environment. I am hoping to share a plant based diary a couple of times each month, where I could share a couple of plant based recipes I hope you could enjoy too, and helpful notes about how eating more plant based and whole foods can help to support your beauty, health and wellbeing from the inside out 🌸
Here is a recipe for chicken wraps with fresh veggies, avocado and herbs I created to make for dinner on Wednesday 🕊🌸 the recipe has quite a lot of fresh fruits and veggies with a lot of nutrients, including carrots, courgette, tomatoes, cabbage, avocado and white onion, and is also quite quick to prepare as just the chicken needs to be cooked. In case you are hoping for the recipe to be plant based, you could include tofu or a different kind of plant protein, and you could also change the mozzarella cheese for a plant based cheese if you can 🌸 you could also include different kinds of fresh veggies and herbs, including lettuce, red onion, baby spinach, kale or parsley if you would like to.
Here is a lovely and plant based recipe for a sweet smoothie bowl by beautiful Ella Mills, the founder and creative director of Deliciously Ella. The recipe is from Ella's book Deliciously Ella Every Day and I love all of the healthy and natural recipes, kind and helpful tips and beautiful photos in the book so much 🕊🌸 the recipe has a lot of natural and caring ingredients, including strawberries, banana, chia seeds and almond butter and could be so lovely to make in the morning for breakfast, or in the daytime if you would like to. Strawberries are one of my favourite fruits and the recipe could be helpful to make in the spring and summer in case it is easier to find fresh strawberries. You could also hopefully find all of the ingredients in your garden or at your local shop 🌸
