Fav Ingredients for Detox
Watermelon and passion fruit! It’s so refreshing and I am always craving it after my workout. Which reminds me, I once went on watermelon cleanse or “watermelon island.” Not really the best idea if you do it for more than two or three days. Trust me. I did it for six days.
Healing with Food
Honestly, I never really gave a second thought to about food until one day I decided to lose weight, go on diets and stop eating proper meals. I had a really unhealthy relationship with food and my body. I was not healthy physically, and even less so mentally. The day I decided to adopt a plant-based vegan diet was the day that I finally gained freedom and control of my lifestyle. It took me some time to let go, but I am finally where I should be, feeling stress-free about food, actually enjoying it with people I care about. I feel amazing and happy eating this way.
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
1 cup soy milk
3-5 vanilla drops
Handful of frozen red dragon fruit
Tropical fruits and berries
Add oats, liquids, vanilla drops and red dragon fruit into a pot. Cook until the oats are creamy and bubbles start to appear. Make sure that the color is mixed well and even! Pour the oats into a bowl and top with your favorite fruits, nut butter and maple syrup! I went with banana coins, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and passion fruit, sprinkled with paleo protein granola , drizzled with maple syrup and finished off with a dollop of peanut butter.
