Roma tomatoes waiting to be roasted...Our juicy roasted tomatoes, used in the veggie and the chicken salad sandwich; as well as as Beluga Lentils bowl and the Roasted Tomatoes Savory; are roasted for 36 hours to release the “umami flavor”. Umami, or savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes and is often used as a flavor enhancer. Tomatoes are naturally rich in this savory component. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Roasting tomatoes brings out some of the greatest flavors, but also actually makes them healthier for you.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that reduces the risk of many types of cancer. When cooking many fruits and vegetables, certain nutrients are depleted or lost. In the case of tomatoes, results are quite different: The lycopene in cooked tomatoes is released and is able to dissolve in fat, like olive oil, to be more easily absorbed by our bodies.

Choose anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense foods more often. Animal sources are not the best way to get your proteins. Most often vegan sources are actually higher in protein than animal sources 🍃
Already got my mind on the weekend. Weekends mean time with loved ones, getting outside in the fresh air and more time to make yummy, healthy food! 😀 🤗
Until the weekend arrives, don't mind me if I just sit and drool over this banana berry smoothie bowl by @vegamelon 🍌
Buddha bowl filled with all the plant based goodies (and the obligatory avo of course 😉) the base is spinach, with green beans, carrots, cherry tomatoes and tofu marinated in a homemade vegan pesto sauce 👌
A lot of being healthy is mindset. If you understand and acknowledge that it takes work and sacrifice, but know the worth of each sacrifice then it becomes so much easier.
I maintained my health by working out 4-6 times a week because I know exerting energy and building bone density and muscle mass is not only going to make me look better, but help my aging process. It will allow for more stability which will lead to less falls, breaks and tears. I know it will reduce my body fat which will decrease my risk for disease. I know that after each workout endorphins are released in the brain which will make me a happier and more energetic. I know that working out, my body will become aesthetically more pleasing which boosts my confidence.
I believe in the 80/20 rule when it comes to diet. I allow myself to have treats every once in a while because I know that every now and then it’s nice to indulge. But for the most part, I eat lean, organic meats, consume tons of vegetables and leafy greens, keep with my nutrional smoothies, consume whole carbs, and make sure to drink plenty of water. I do this because I know that keeping a low sugar diet will decrease my risk for chronic disease and in turn lower my medical bills 😂. I know that eating nutritional foods will help my hair, skin and nails look and feel their best. I know that diet is extremely important for gut health. And having a healthy gut is linked to both metabolic and psychological processes. Eating healthy helps my depression and my anxiety. It keeps me active and adventurous.
And honestly, I workout and push hard so to go and eat like crap after defeats the purpose.
I meditate, listen to podcast, read self help books, and am always looking and following the trends of health and fitness. I do this for both my career and my mental help. Having knowledge is key. Having perspective makes you a kinder human. Having a clear head allows my health and fitness stay on track. #mentalhealth#musclemass#bodyfatpercentage#chronicillness#bonedensity#nutritionalbenefits#podcast#selfhelp#meditation#bodymindspiritsoul#perspective#patience#preparenowforlater#healthandfitness#confidence#stability

Christmas is starting to feel so close now! I love finding festive but still healthy recipes and snacks as alternatives! 😀
Chia pudding with yoghurt and fresh berries makes such a good breakfast or snack 😍 and you can use a dairy free yoghurt to make this vegan if needed!
