A second Q&A with Danijela

Here is a post to share a second Q&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&A 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.

Summer peaches with honey and almonds

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).

Organic matcha

Here is a post to share and note a bit about organic matcha, a superfood, which helps to look after your body and wellbeing. I just bought an organic matcha green tea powder by BioBalance (@biobalancenz) a couple of days ago, and am looking forward to trying the organic matcha for the first time 🕊 the organic matcha powder is a bright, fresh green colour and is often used in smoothies, baking and lattes as a more nutritious alternative for coffee, and the organic matcha could be helpful for someone who is quite careful or health conscious, or could be hoping to drink a bit less caffeine 🌸

October favourites

Here is a post to share a couple of early natural beauty care, skin care and other kinds of favourites for the month of October 🕊 a couple of the favourites I chose include a couple of natural lipsticks from the Body Shop, an organic coconut oil, the treasure yourself affirmations cards by Miranda Kerr, a plant based recipe for a hot chocolate with almond milk and a cotton and linen shirt jacket with a tie waist, from Country Road 🌸

Cacao and almond energy balls

Here is a recipe for cacao and almond energy balls, created by Ella, the founder and creative director of Deliciously Ella 🕊🌸 I often made the cacao and almond energy balls when I was almost finished studying at University, to help to feel energised and keep pepped up when writing essays and before exams. The cacao and almond energy balls by Ella are so delicious and nice to make, and are made with a lot of nourishing and plant based ingredients, including almonds, raw cacao powder and coconut oil. The recipe for the cacao and almond energy balls is from Ella's blog and website, Deliciously Ella and there are also more recipes for energy balls with different flavours in case you enjoy different flavours too 🌸

Quinoa with fresh lemon

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 🌸

September favourites

Here are a couple of natural skin care, beauty care and other favourite things I have been enjoying or using quite a lot for the month of September. It is early spring here in New Zealand (where I am from) and there are a lot of spring blossoms, daffodils, bluebells, camellias and kowhai trees flowering in gardens 🕊🌸 the air outside feels light and fresh, a lot of light green leaves are coming through on flowers, plants and trees and there are a lot of birds singing and cheeping 🌸 a couple of the favourites I chose for the month of September include a moisturiser and a light pink cotton tote bag from KORA Organics, a chickpeas with fresh tomato and lemon recipe, a white cotton jumper from Country Road and a soft pink rose quartz gemstone.

Chickpeas with fresh tomato and lemon

Here is a healthy and plant based recipe for chickpeas with fresh tomatoes, herbs and fresh lemon I created to make for dinner a couple of days ago, with roasted potatoes and sweet potatoes and green veggies. The recipe has just a couple of ingredients you could hopefully find in your garden or at your local shop, including olive oil, white onion, fresh garlic, fresh herbs, tomatoes, chickpeas, salt and pepper, lemon juice and fresh parsley. I love chickpeas with tomatoes and roast veggies and also sometimes make a fresh hummus to have with carrots, celery or grain crackers 🕊🌸 the recipe is also quite simple to make and hopefully the ingredients could be easy to find 🌸  

A sweet smoothie bowl recipe

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 🌸
