E con l'Autunno ritorna...🤔😳😊
...e con l'autunno ritorna l'amato ZENZERO!👏🔝👍😊
Eh già.. Piccolo ripasso sulle proprietà di questa radice portentosa..
Nella medicina cinese, lo zenzero è usato come riscaldante che agisce specificamente sui polmoni, milza e stomaco..🤗
Favorisce la circolazione e tratta il catarro nei polmoni accompagnato da tosse.👍
Favorisce la circolazione e la sudorazione e viene usato per il trattamento del dolore articolare dovuto al freddo.😊🔝
Potente antibatterico, antivirale, anti-fungino e antiparassitario ed inoltre ottimo per chi soffre di asma, disturbi cardiocircolatorio..
E’ dimostrato che lo zenzero è un ottimo antidolorifico e antinfiammatorio, essendo quindi eccezionale per i dolori muscolari, artrite e dolori articolari.
Il regolare consumo della TISANA di zenzero rafforza il sistema immunitario grazie alla presenza di antiossidanti e principi attivi, aumentando quindi il livello di energia e resistenza fisica..💪
Solo una tazza di tisana al giorno può minimizzare il rischio di infarto, infatti lo zenzero aiuta a pulire le arterie dai depositi di grasso che si possono formare.😳😳
Grazie alle proprietà riscaldanti, migliora la circolazione sanguigna e quindi ottimo per chi ha spesso piedi e mani fredde.. 😖😀
Lo zenzero è persino in grado di migliorare le prestazioni cerebrali..
Come fare la TISANA 😍
Pezzo di radice di 4-5 cm, lavala bene (non rimuovere la buccia) e tagliala a pezzettini sottili (o grattugiala).. Metti il tutto in una pentola con mezzo litro d’acqua e fai bollire a fuoco basso.
Se si vuole essere certi di estrarre tutti i principi attivi è necessario farlo bollire per 45 minuti o un’ora (in tal caso può essere necessario aggiungere più acqua all’inizio). Altrimenti si può far bollire per 10 minuti e riusare i pezzetti di zenzero per le volte successive.
Spegni, lascia in infusione per 5 minuti. Filtra e bevila calda.. 🙏#ayurvedaeveryday#ayurvedalifestyle#ayurvedafood#ayurvedacooking#wellness#wellnessday#wellnesslifestyle#wellnessgoals#wellnessforever#wellnessfood#instagramhub#iphonegrapher#earlybird#iphoneasia#earlybirdlove#iphoneography#intagrammers#iphoneonly#iphoneartists#instagoo
A belated #worldmentalhealthday2018 post..
A recap of the most recent literature of nutrition mental health topics 🧠
Higher quality diets (variety of the 5 food groups, wholegrains, Mediterranean diet etc) correlate with better mental health outcomes & reduced incidence of depressive disorders, compared to typical Western diet (high quantities of refined ‘fast foods’, low fruit/veg/fibre).
High quality studies have established a relationship between mood improvements, quality of life, coping with stress & the med diet.✔️
🌻Fruit & veg
4 to >7 servings of F&V each day reflected lower levels of stress in a huge Aus study – this was independent of socioeconomic status & lifestyle risk factors! 🙌🏼✖️only 7% of Aussies are eating 5 servings of veg each day, so it definitely pays off health & mind-wise to increase your veg!🥕
Low dietary magnesium links with mental & mood disorders – we need it for neurotransmitters & hormones.🧠Not much is known regarding supplementation as a treatment aid for mental disorders, but obtaining magnesium from food (nuts/seeds/leafy greens🥗/seafood🐟/wholegrains🥖…) is supported by research to improve mental health.✔️
Like magnesium, more needs to be done to know whether fish oil tablets can aid mental health disorder treatment.💊 increasing fatty fish intake (salmon/mackerel/tuna/sardines…) can be valuable & surprise… a big contributor to the Med diet.🍴🐠
Sometimes meat gets a bad rap, but re: mental health, the research is super unclear! 👓What is currently known, is too much or too little is associated with certain poorer mental health outcomes.❌Eating <500g/week is recommended for Aussies..🥩
It can be hard to eat well if mental health is suffering (I know!). Aiming to do your best, eat nourishing foods when you can & being kind to yourself is more important than adding more stress by trying to have the ‘perfect diet’ (hint: they don’t exist!). Diet is not everything. Exercising, resting, talking, sunshine & seeking expert help is all too important!!! 🙌🏼✨
Just leaving this on here to show how some weekends really go down. On my way back from working out and getting groceries I stopped to get food and coffee, none which were “clean” or “real”. Though I love everything health and wellness related, I also love life. My biggest struggle has always been about restrictions of any aspect. I refuse to live my life obsessed over the amount of grams of protein or carbs I eat everyday, because I find it silly and unfortunately. Sometimes health can be defined as what is good for our souls and what would make us feel fulfilled on that moment, and if some days it means stored bought coffee with non organic almond milk then so be it🤷🏻♀️
I hope you are enjoying your Saturday, doing something that makes you happy❤️
Make even your smallest snacks from real food and feel the power of satisfying, nutritious food on your energy levels, metabolism, and especially your mood! For more inspiration, check out my and/life app, where I store tons of real-food snack ideas. Link is in my bio. And don't forget the best 4pm snack of all: a few bites of last night's dinner!
as I have promised here my recipe for the vegan apple pie. You can eat it raw or warm, depending on your energy type.
I was inspired by @isshappy for this great recipe and gave it my own little tweak .
🌱for the crust 🌱- 12 inch baking pan
1 cup gluten free rolled oat flakes
1 cup walnuts
2 flax eggs
10 dates, soaked
a pinch of cinnamon
a pinch of cardamom
a pinch of vanilla extract
a dash of salt
Let the dates soak at least 2 hours before use.
Blend the oat flakes and the walnuts in a food processor until you have a good flour. Add the soaked dates and pulse again.
For the flax eggs: use 2 tablespoons of flax seeds with 1/2 cup of warm water, blend and there you have your flax eggs.
Add the flax seeds and all other ingredients to the batter and blend everything until you have a good texture.
transfer your batter to the baking pan and put in the fridge for at least 30 mins or 10 mins in the freezer, if you want to have it raw.
You can also put it in the oven at 180°C for 20 mins. let it cool down a bit afterwards. 🌱For cinnamon apples🌱: 🍎🍏
5-6 medium sized apples, I used regional ones that were a little bit sour😁
20 soaked dates
1/2 cup date water
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 tsp ginger, ground and fresh
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice
dash of nutmeg
dash of sea salt
Slice the apples, put aside.
Blend the soaked dates with all other ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. It is so delicious.
Take a big bowl and mix the apples with the cinnamon sauce. Transfer everything to the baking pan. Done.😍
It you want it raw, then eat it like that. Tastes amazing. I like it warm since my Vata dosha really needs warm foods in the fall.
Both ways are amazing. If you are like me though, put it in the oven and bake at 180°C for another 20 mins., depending on how gooey you want it to be 😉
Have a great weekend. I hope you are taking much rest.
🇺🇸 I’m an empath with very poor boundaries. I’m doing the inner work, but it’s still super extra mega difficult for me to be around sad, angry or anxious people since I end up taking in their “mood” which is not helpful. Surely, full in responsibility, I take it in beacuse it’s also active somewhere inside of me, too 😉 .
Today I was at the bank. Yups, banks and tax offices are hell for empaths 😊 Waiting in line, taking a look at all those drained, rolled-down faces and all of a sudden I had this little sun bursts in my heart ♥️.
I have finally integrated, on an emotional level, what’s the deal with “what happens to you and how you feel about it, two different things.” Yes to choice of core emotion! Yes to feeling what is and still choosing to be joyous. Named fear, tamed fear. I sometimes genuinely ask people “are you anxious?” They say “yes”. I reply “thanks” and breathe it out. .
Dancing also helps a lot in dealing with emotions. Been doing a lot of dancing this couple of weeks. Light. Love. Adventure.
What’s your way of making friends with your emotions?
Thanks @jenezep for this #untamed pic!

요즘에 유행하는 웰빙푸드트렌드.조미료없이 맛을 내는게 신기한 레스토랑.설탕 ,버터 ,MSG, 없이,튀기지않았음에도 맛있는 음식들
Well-being food is a popular trend nowadays in Korea. Dr. Robbins is a wonderful restaurant to taste without seasoning. They sell decent food without sugar, butter, and MSG. They taste nice even if they don't fry the ingredients. I ordered pumpkin soup and seafood tomato spaghetti.

It’s World 🥚 day today!😊We are celebrating with eggs on toast😋One of our fave go to for healthy food tips is @doctors_kitchen & he says: “I often get asked about whether eggs are healthy and we should eat the yolk? They're full of choline, protein and healthy fats that we use for hormone synthesis, cell wall structure amongst a host of other processes. So enjoy your eggs 👍” So do as Dr. Rupy says 😉😊

Beautiful reflection below from @sophy_roberts on her stay at Villa Rahasia
“There are very few places that buck the trends this hard. No WiFi, and none coming. No cell phone coverage, and none likely. No menus, just salads, fish, fruits. No flotilla of servers, just a man called Stepan who can sort out anything. And when the sun goes down, your light is the only one for miles. This is the little cottage where I’ve been staying high up on a bluff on the coast of Western Sumba. I came to write for 10 days, to finish a book. I have written at twice my normal speed except when I’ve been watching turtles do the surfing and getting distracted by the odd fisherman and village hikes. To me it is a little bit of Africa - the bush camp vibe - with the cultural depth of Indonesia before mass tourism arrived. They don’t market it, because some places don’t make sense on paper. This is one of them, conceived by the owners of @nihisumba as a secret retreat for people who really, truly need to step out of the world. A place where none of the other trappings matter a jot, and just being is enough.” #simplicityisluxury#askforRahasia#passionpassport#writerslife#nihigram
Use “Most of the Time fats “ in meals , cooking and keep in your pantry .
Monosaturated : avocados
almonds, cashews and peanuts
cooking oils made from plants or seeds like canola, olive, peanut, soybean, rice bran, sesame and sunflower oils.
Polysaturated : omega 3 and omega 6 ; fish, tahini ,linseed (flaxseed) and chia seeds, soybean, sunflower, safflower, and canola oil, and margarine spreads made from these oils, pine nuts, walnuts and Brazil nuts.
Tip :Getting the right balance of omega 3:omega 6 is important .
The Heart Foundation recommends 250-500mg of omega-3 (EPA & DHA) per week, and 1 gram of omega-3 (ALA) per day. .
So, healthy eating pattern, including fish and nuts, is the recommended way to consume essential Omega-3 nutrients for heart health. And try keeping saturated fats ( the white bits in marbled cuts of meats ) and trans fats to a minimum. As for the omega 6, preferably to come for nuts , seeds and their oils.
Heads up on omega 6 though ; it is
recommended that 4-10% of energy Comes from your unprocessed omega-6 oils.
As omega-6 is found in many types of oils, this means that it can be found in discretionary foods like biscuits, cakes and takeaway foods (in which oil is a substantial ingredient). The fact that Omega-6 can be found in these foods does not make them healthy.
Let’s get mindful with our yummy fats.
Use your imagination to eat more vegetables and a wider range! Try different types and colours but also eat a variety within the same colour - they all provide valuable nutrients in different amounts 🌈🥦🥕🍅🌿🌶
Here we have:
Use a sua imaginação para comer muito mais verduras e legumes - tipos diferentes e cores diferentes porque todos eles têm nutrientes indispensáveis!

Mango Peach Plum Coconut! In Spain we are still in the transition from summer to autumn, I don't miss the chance to eat the last peaches of the year! Mangoes are seasonal fruits now in Malaga and coconuts in Canary Islands, so if you have the chance, make a jump around here to taste tropical fruits on the spot 🍌🍍🥥😍
