I’m very excited to get an Organic fruit &veg box delivery from @homegrown.ni 😁, I must confess I’m a stickler for organic and I find it almost impossible to get it in East Belfast 😏
Potatoes ,carrots,onions,Tumeric,celery,apples,pears,cabbage +the list goes on ..all for £20 #shoplocal#organicveggies#homegrownni
It’s my routine to get some good stuff on every Wednesday and here what I got today..,
All french made colourful carrots, artichokes, apples, pears and my daughter’s favourite country bread, pain de campagne, it’s taste like -a sour dough-
All bio products, this is one thing it’s so wonderful how consumers can reach to organic products so easily with affordable prices in France.
I believe that healthy organic food should not be exclusive, need to be affordable and reachable to everybody.

I've recently started a breathing practice. Some call it mediation but I find meditation can be a scary word.
Some people think it is hard to start a mediation practice. Or they think mediation is not for them.
But if you focus on just breathing, the practice becomes easier to start and not so formal. During a breathing practice, you don't have to follow any rules.
Whatever is comfortable for you is what the breathing practice is. You can think about things - maybe it is about how you want to achieve a goal, maybe it is to reflect on what happened or is going to happen during the day.
That is fine. The easiest way to start a breathing practice is to simply stop what you are doing and breath.
Close your eyes and relax. Get comfortable. Sit in a comfy chair or lie down. Then start to breathe using your deep belly breathing. This means that when you breathe in, the belly rises and fills with air. When you exhale, the belly contracts and empties. Breathing in through the nose and out through the nose is the key.
Start with just 5 minutes a day. It may be hard to do every day but this is a goal. Even if you achieve 3 days a week, that is better than none!
As you get more comfortable breathing, you will find that your mind will become more calm and empty. In the beginning, it will be hard for this to happen. Don't be upset with yourself! It will happen.
Will you try to breathe today? #instagood#lifestyle#heathershealthhabits#organicveggies#nutrients#nutrientdense#holisticnutrition#holisticliving#holistichealing#plantfuel#wholefoodplantbased#bodymindsoul#plantbased#holistic
Okay, not flowers here. These are Kabocha and Delicata squashes. I have always failed at growing larger squashes and pumpkins, so I’m feeling pretty excited right now and had to share. Trying not to count my squashes before they ripen, but...tricky.
Heads up to those of you in the Vermont area.. there are 3 screenings of "MODIFIED: A Food Lover's Journey Into GMOs" playing this week in Montpelier, Burlington & Middlebury. 🌽⠀
Filmed over a 10 year period, this documentary tells the story of a very personal mother-daughter investigative journey into the complex world of genetically modified foods (GMOs). Filmmaker and PBS Food producer Aube Giroux documents the grassroots battle to label GMOs. “I wanted to find out why GMOs aren’t labeled here when polls show over 80% of Americans and Canadians are in favour, and 64 countries around the world already require that GMOs be labeled on food products”. The film, which has received 10 awards since its release, was partially filmed in Vermont and highlights the state’s historic fight for labelling, as well as Vermont’s short-lived GMO labelling law which was overturned by federal legislation in 2016. ⠀

Wednesday easy mozzarella quesadillas breakfast with Salsa Verde and pico de Gallo
We love quesadillas, it’s just so quick to make them in the morning and you can have fresh healthy meal to start your day.
To be healthy recipe, it’s better to use fresh cheese, like mozzarella or even feta is ok. Normally Oaxaca cheese- Mexican version of mozzarella - is common to use for cheese quesadillas in Mexico but mozzarella is good enough to substitute.
It’s also nice to have some salsa as a company with quesadillas and my favourite one is pico de gallo, fresher chopped tomatoes, lime, onion and coriander with like fresh chills.
