The miracle cure does not exist. If we try one food and it does not suit us, it is our responsibility to stop consuming it.
Moreover, it is important to have variety in our diet. Yes spinach is healthy but we also need cilantro, parsley, lettuce, rosemary, basil and so many other herbs to thrive.
If I am offered a dish that I don’t particularly like but I am totally starving, I might accept that. However, if I feel whole and happy in my skin without any worry about the next meal, I will easily turn down everything that I don’t like. Love and food are so related in this matter (as Teal Swan so eloquently explains it). My friend my sister, I have two amazing books to recommend, by Geneen Roth (my mentor) and Don Miguel Ruiz: Women, food and God and The mastery of Love.
Wild herbs are called bad? Far from it! Their nutritive value is through the roof compared to cultivated aromatic herbs. They are strong herbs because of their wild nature.
Wild leaves are delicious in a smoothie with banana and chocolate.
If you want to know everything about milk thistle, plantain and dandelion, I recommend Markus Rothkranz and (in French) Thierry Casasnovas.
Lion’s mane is an amazing medicinal mushroom which boosts the brain.
I tested it for the first time in my last Raw Living order.
The taste is not very strong so it goes very well into a salad dressing. I mixed a teaspoon of Lion’s mane with orange and lemon juice, salt and olive oil. Cumin powder is delicious in it as well.
A few tablespoons of red lentils will be amazing if you let them gently sprout during the whole night. This is why I do my salads in the evening for the next day, letting them marinate for a night in the fridge.
The salad itself is composed of zucchini, carrots and pumpkin noodles. Enjoy!
You may already know my love for the raw chocolate hearts from Sacred Chocolate. I buy them at the best raw food store in Europe called Raw Living. I already reviewed for you Immuno Mushroom and Gold Ormus. Today please let me introduce Gotcha Matcha, a sublime cacao mix with even a few drops of jasmine essential oil!
Furthermore, I adore this chocolate bar because matcha made a real difference during my studies. As per the recommendation of a Japanese store owner in Paris, I used matcha to boost my brain before the exams. I would use the raw matcha powder directly into smoothies, as I demonstrated in the videos “Strong green smoothie with Japanese macha powder” and “Improvised smoothie with acai, pomegranate, macha and pineapple“.
My friend my sister, as you know if you follow me, beauty starts from the inside in my humble opinion. With chia seeds, you get the opportunity to clean your GI tract because these tiny seeds swell when put into a liquid. They act like a gentle brush inside our body.
You can put them in a smoothie or in a salad if your dressing is generous enough, with lots of olive oil, lemon or orange juice and sea salt.
Extremely rich in iron, mulberries help build strong red blood cell. They will also nourish your beautiful body with vitamins (C and K) and potassium.
In your are interested in getting antioxidants, mulberries are full of resveratrol. Although red wine has it too, I do not drink so mulberries are the way!
