Colder β„οΈπŸŒ« days invite warming ♨ food. Eating complex carbohydrates will help with energy. The unfortunately unfamous carbs are getting such a bad name nowadays but the facts are: πŸ’£ Complex carbohydrates have more nutrients and take longer for your body to digest, so they help fill you up and don't cause the same swings in blood sugars as simple carbs. ... Grains, beans, fruits and vegetables (yes, even potatoes) all contain complex carbohydrates. πŸ’­Not to mention that the brain has a very high rate of metabolism, using ~5.6 milligramme of glucose per 100 gram of brain tissue per minute.  Dr Ashish Shrivastav, senior consultant neurosurgeon at Apollo Hospitals explained, “Carbohydrates are the only nutrients which can match this rate of energy requirement. However, the brain prefers to get its carbohydrates from carbohydrate rich whole foods rather than simple sugars. The cognitive functions or the thinking capabilities of the brain deteriorate if the glucose levels fall in the brain. A rapid relief can be obtained from carbohydrate rich whole foods. At the same time, glucose from simple sugars causes detrimental effect to the brain. Hence, glucose from whole food carbohydrates is essential in diet but excess simple carbohydrates are harmful.” . . . #craftednourishment #delicious #foodshare #organic #health #healthcoach #nutrition #cleaneating #healthychef #consciousliving #vegetarian #vegan #wholefood #plantbased #wfpb #lovefood #moment #moodsnapshot #soulfood #bewell #lovelife #eatforlife #nonasties

Reminiscing of flavours from both my travels and my childhood. First attempt at making my own stuffed vines leaves. I just love those little green rolls.  I have used a mix of red and arborio rice. . . . #craftednourishment #delicious #foodshare #organic #health #healthcoach #nutrition #cleaneating #healthychef #consciousliving #vegetarian #vegan #wholefood #plantbased #wfpb #lovefood #moment #moodsnapshot #soulfood #bewell #lovelife #eatforlife #nonasties
For me food prep is never too complicated. Wash, Peel, Chop, slice, grate for my everyday raw veggies. Easy to grab for a snack or a quick salad πŸ₯—. Always have a warming pot 🍲 of soup, a batch of brown rice, or quinoa, or barley, or legumes ready to go so the base of any meal is always ready to be used when time poor. I have a tendency to cook with whatever I have in the fridge rather than planning ahead. Not to mention I can't get my head around eating the same thing everyday πŸ˜‹. It also gives me more freedom when I pick the best veggies available at my street market. πŸ†πŸ₯”πŸ₯•πŸŒ½πŸŒΆπŸ₯’πŸ„πŸ…πŸ₯‘πŸ‡πŸˆπŸ‰πŸ‹πŸŒπŸŠπŸπŸŽπŸŒ±πŸŒΎπŸŒΏ I use a lot of different spices and herbs, and I always have in my pantry some coconut milk and a few cans of chickpeas, black beans or lentils for 'hurry up' meals.

Flavours often remind me of places. This one transported me back to a late summer πŸ”† in beautiful Turkey πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·. Where pomegrates are freshly juiced on the side of the road. Picked up some pomegranate this morning at my local market, extracted the ruby red jewels and blended them with coconut water.  Nutrition facts: a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants, not to mention fiber and anti-inflammatory properties — but more than that, studies show eating the fruit and/or drinking pomegranate juice can help protect against disease, like certain cancers and Alzheimer’s.  #takemeback #traveltheworld #memories . . . #craftednourishment #delicious #foodshare #organic #health #healthcoach #nutrition #cleaneating #healthychef #consciousliving #vegetarian #vegan #wholefood #plantbased #wfpb #lovefood #moment #moodsnapshot #soulfood #bewell #lovelife #eatforlife #nonasties

Cool 😎 as a cucumber! This cucumber, lime and mint cold soup, (or smoothie! Because you just chop and blitz everything in your blender) is a perfect snack to keep me hydrated and satisfying my craving for freshness without sugar content. Cucumbers have been a popular vegetable used in Indian traditional medicine since ancient times. Known for their antidiabetic, lipid-lowering and antioxidant activity, cucumbers have a detoxifying, cleansing effect on the body. . . . #craftednourishment #delicious #foodshare #organic #health #healthcoach #nutrition #cleaneating #healthychef #consciousliving #vegetarian #vegan #wholefood #plantbased #wfpb #lovefood #moment #moodsnapshot #soulfood #bewell #lovelife #eatforlife #nonasties
