TGIF! whose ready for spiced chickpea, sweet potato & cauliflower curry? 💥this is one of my go-to batchable recipes for cozy fall lunches/dinners: filled with hearty vegetables, plant protein and just the right amount of spice 👌🏼. the instant pot is my most-used kitchen appliance (in addition to the vitamix) for making quick, one-pot meals like this. have a great weekend everyone!

Today, when the planet is alive with awareness, could be THE day for YOU to make a beautiful change! What if today was the day you got into alignment with your core values? What if today was the day you stopped struggling to not be who you really are? What if you stopped hiding behind what you always do and you started doing what you feel called to do? What if today was the day when you listened to your body when it called out for something that would truly feed it, make it feel good before, during, and after you ate it? What if today was the day you decided not to eat what you usually eat? What if today was the day you gave a gift to your body? What if today was THAT day? What if today you fed your body so that it can easily live, breathe, and your cells are bathed with energy and your life force starts to surge? What if today was the day you got over that hump that always seems to be there? What if today was the day you just stepped over it into a brand new way of being when you couldn’t fathom the things that you might have done yesterday out of simple routine and habit because today you are letting yourself do something radically different? What if today was the day? Today COULD BE the day! Today could be the exact day when you do what you never really expected yourself to do but what you’ve felt in your heart is what you really want to do. And if you do that, then today will be THAT day you will always remember for the rest of your life as being your First Day, your very first day.
Follow @wellnesspass_ Hello everyone, today I want to tell you a bit about myself and of my journey with the macrobiotic diet. If you like, leave a comment below about your experience. I am 1.70m tall and my weight is 57 kilograms. So it would be best not to lose any further weight. I haven’t completed even a year of macrobiotic dietary principles, hence my weight could further go down. It's not stable. Furthermore, I still have difficulty digesting certain foods. That is another factor that makes it hard for me to gain weight. And I'm considering now another factor that may be the reason behind the weight loss. Bob Ligon from George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation claims that 50% of brown rice or whole grains daily may be hard for some to digest. In other words, too much short grain brown rice and salt can stress the internal organs because of excess fibers, leading to low assimilation and energy levels, so weight loss occurs. Realizing this, I started eating meat. While visiting Norway, I had meat for the first time since starting my healing journey. Almost eight months ago.
