Good morning guys!! That's what my chia bowl looks like in the morning! Love that breakfast! So nutritious and so yummy. I usually make a hemp seed milk by blending hemp seeds, filtered water, vanilla extract, a date and pinch of sea salt (no need to strain the milk). Then I soak 2 tbsp of chia seeds in about a cup of milk, and then I add soaked almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts and pumpkin seeds, and superfoods goji berries, raw cacao nibs, mulberries, golden berries and coconut flakes, and I sprinkle with cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. This breakfast is raw, vegan and gluten-free, and contains full of vitamins and minerals, proteins, fiber, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and enzymes! SO good!!!❤️
Triple berry smoothie with chia seeds and kale. Also added maca for its energy boosting, mood balancing and sexual function properties. Love to have my green smoothie! Hope you all have a great weekend! xo
1 cup almond milk
1 ripe banana
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca
2 cups kale
1 tbsp raw honey, optional
Hi guys!! You all know how much I love organic and natural skincare products, and tonight I tried the detoxifying mask from @truselforganics and I have to say that I really loved it!! My skin felt so fresh and clean! It's all natural, handmade, and helps reduce acne, as well as minimize pores and wrinkles. It's a powder made from calcium bentonite clay, kaolin and rose kaolin clay, Moroccan red clay, Dead Sea clay, Moroccan rhassoul clay, Epson salt and 100% pure collagen. You simply mix the powder with water or apple cider vinegar and you directly apply on the skin!💛
Afternoon snack! Organic strawberries with a raspberry leaf iced tea outside near the pool! Raspberry leaf tea is one of the best tea for women, and especially pregnant women! Drinking a cup everyday, hopefully it will help me in a few months haha!❤️
Lunch is a kale salad with carrots, celery, avocado and olives tossed in a homemade tahini dressing, which is made with raw tahini, lemon juice, orange juice, garlic, sea salt and cayenne pepper. The salad is topped with gomasio and triple blend seaweed flakes for extra minerals. It was DELISH!💚
Sautéed tempeh with carrots, broccoli, bok choy and green onions in a tahini miso dressing. I also use lots of ginger and fresh lemongrass as well, and sprinkle gomasio on top and garnished with fresh basil. For some reasons, I was craving tempeh. I felt very satisfied with that simple and easy to make meal. Sometimes I eat tempeh with brown rice or buckwheat noodles but I kept it simple this time. Simplicity = better digestion and assimilation of nutrients. Also, tempeh is a complete source of protein and is easier to digest as the soybeans are fermented. Love to have it once in a while!
Unpasteurized apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries for its health properties. It's a truly healing elixir. It can be used for health, beauty or around the house. I wrote an article on my blog with 30 simple ways in which you can use it from cooking and baking, weight loss, detoxification and yeast infection, to get rid of fruit flies or fleas on pet, to soothe a sunburn, use as toner or face mask, help eczema and seasonal allergies, or to whiten teeth.
What's your favorite way to use it?💛
Lunch was rice paper nori wraps with sprouts, red bell pepper, cucumber, avocado, mango and kale chips with a nama shoyu, toasted sesame oil, umeboshi vinegar, ginger and wasabi sauce that I put inside the rolls on the sprouts. Love these types of "sandwich"! Vegan and gluten free, and full of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. I just roll the wrap with my hands (the nori sheet on the damp rice paper) and cut it in half. It's that simple and yes delicious!💛
Who else loves Durian?? :) I found one here in South Florida and I was so excited to open it! It has that lovely taste, and rich and creamy consistency. I love to eat it fresh, or in ice cream or smoothies. So yummy!:)
Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats -- I know it's not autumn lol but it's my favorite season and sometimes I just miss the warmth and flavors of the season. Im still Canadian and miss my country lol. So anyways, I made this breakfast using organic rolled oats, almond milk, pumpkin purée, pumpkin spice, pure maple syrup, walnuts and medjool date. I also garnished with coconut flakes. So simple, nutritious and so yummy. No cooking required. You simply combine all ingredients in a bowl or jar, mix until well combined and store in the fridge overnight. So so good. Food for the soul💛
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
3-4 walnuts, chopped
1 medjool date, diced
1-2 tbsp pure maple syrup
Coconut flakes, opt
Spiced Indian lentil stew for dinner. So nourishing and filling. It's made with coconut oil, onion, garlic and ginger, lime juice and zest, sweet potato, cauliflower florets, red lentils, vegetable stock, cumin and mustard seeds, garam masala, turmeric, curry, cinnamon, sea salt and freshly ground pepper. And it's topped with natural yogurt and fresh mint. Delish!💛 Basmati rice could be served on the side as well. Recipe will be on my blog tomorrow! X
Buckwheat noodles with sautéed vegetables, cilantro and sesame seeds with a homemade tahini sauce. Simple, healthy and delicious. There are different types of buckwheat noodles but I like to use the 100% buckwheat noodles from Eden Foods. They are only made from buckwheat so they are gluten-free. And did you know that buckwheat wasn't a grain but a seed? It's a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel.💛
Quick dinner tonight. Raw vegan sushis for me!:) In one roll, there is homemade raw mock tuna, cucumber, carrots and avocado, and in the other one, there is red bell pepper, green onion, sauerkraut, greens and avocado. The sauce is Nama shoyu, which is raw fermented soy sauce. The raw mock tuna is made with soaked sunflower seeds and walnuts, lemon juice, celery, dulse flakes, garlic, sea salt and black pepper. The dulse gives that "sea" flavor while providing extra minerals. You simply make the pate using a food processor. No cooking or baking required. In the other one, the red bell pepper imitate salmon. Sometimes, I also like to add a big collard leaf in the roll, or make cauliflower sushi rice, but I kept it very simple tonight. I'll probably make a quick miso soup later as a snack too.💛
After having worked for a couple hours, it's time to take a break and go outside get my vitamin D:) I stay hydrated by drinking fresh coconut water. I love coconut water because it's one of the most natural hydrating drink out there. It's actually compatible with human blood and can quickly rehydrate the body. It's a great source of minerals Ca, Mg, P, K, and Na. However, I'm not a big fan of pasteurized coconut water, as not only it's processed, but the pasteurization destroys some of the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Some pasteurized coconut water even have added flavors and sugar, and some of them are only made from concentrate. And more importantly, they don't taste as good as fresh coconut water. This is why I always choose and encourage others to drink raw/unpasteurized coconut water!💛
Good morning beautiful people!! Today I'm taking over the @naturalgourmetinstitute Instagram and will post a few pictures of what my day looks like. I recently graduated from the school and have been asked to do that:) I also wrote a post on my blog about my experience to the school, as I know that many of you had questions.
So today's breakfast was a coconut rose water chia pudding with fresh blueberries, goji berries and raw cacao nibs.
I simply made coconut milk, in which I added pure rose water, as well as vanilla bean and pure maple syrup. I soaked the chia seeds in the milk until I got a pudding like consistency, and added the toppings. It's that simple and it was lovely. I love chia puddings and eat them several times a week. They taste so good and are so good for you!💗
E3live smoothie made with raw coconut water, banana, frozen mangoes, e3live, maca, raw honey, coconut oil and celtic sea salt. I also added a bit of sun is shining, which is a green superfood that includes green grasses, dark leafy greens, herbs, algae, sea vegetables, enzymes and probiotics.
Are you familiar with e3live? I consume it every morning upon waking. I usually drink it with water, pure aloe and the juice of 1/2 lemon. For a change, I made a morning smoothie with it. E3live is an incredible superfood. Its a blue-green algae that helps to increase energy & vitality, improve brain function, improve digestion and intestinal health, balance blood sugar levels, strengthen immune system and make healthier skin, nails and hair. It provides 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids.💙
1 cup raw coconut water
1 ripe banana
1 cup frozen mangoes
2 tbsp e3live
1 tsp maca
1 tsp raw honey or pure maple syrup
1 tsp coconut oil
Pinch celtic sea salt
1/4 tsp sun is shining, optional

DIY skincare product! This is a stretch mark cream. Since I'm pregnant, I want to put the best chances on my side to avoid stretch marks, so I decided to make my own hydrating cream, which I really love. It has a lovely buttery texture and penetrates the skin pretty quickly. I like to apply it on my skin after shower. It's made with very hydrating ingredients and ingredients that are known to be excellent to prevent stretch marks. Every ingredient has its purpose. I came up with my own recipe after being inspired and making lots of researches. Most ingredients can be found in health food stores or online. If you make it, I'd love to have some feedback!:)
