Keep Hydrated with Extremely Simple Alkaline Drinks (perfect for busy people)
3 Beautiful Plant Based Ideas for Different Ocassions
People always ask me: I want to try to eat “more alkaline” but what the heck do I eat? Well, the good news is that following the alkaline diet is not as hard as many gurus make it to be. First of all, it’s not about perfection, it’s about progress. Also, the alkaline diet is not about eating 100% raw (unless of course you want to). There are many different ways to go about it (for example, some people go fully vegan, some don’t, some go vegeterian and some simply decide to add more plant based foods into their diet and reduce animal products at the same time). It’s up to you what you decide to choose. My goal is to provide you with simple, easy and nutritious recipes that don’t require spending hours in your kitchen. These are also fantastic to detox and help you add more fresh raw or almost raw foods into your diet. Whatever it is that you eat, always try to serve it with a big bowl of salad. You can never go wrong with that! So there we go ladies and gentlemen, some of my latest recipes! Of course, remember that nothing is set in stone. Feel free to use your imagination and transfrom those recipes if you want (especially if a recipe calls for an ingredient you can’t stand or doesn’t work well for you). And yes, as the title of this post says, these recipes are fully plant based, as it is our goal- we want to enrich our diets with beautiful plant based foods and actually enjoy it (doesn’t have to be gross…) Continue reading

Very often, I hear my family, friends or clients saying: “I heard of the alkaline diet, it makes sense, and I am really motivated to try, but the problem is time. How can I make it work on a busy schedule?” or “ I went alkaline for a couple of weeks and felt great, but it was kind of getting time-consuming, and so I got off track. How do I turn my motivation into sustainable, alkaline-friendly habits?” Now, let me clear up one thing: while I do agree that the common belief that “self-care is easier/more doable when one has more free time” is not untrue, I must also admit that not all people who have plenty of free time eat healthy. Plus, you can also find people on super busy schedules who simply learn how to plan their meals and organize their lifestyles so that their nutrition does not suffer. If this is something you would like to learn, read on, and you will understand that more often than not, “I don’t have time” is an excuse. You are just about to discover the basics of “health productivity”!
