Eating to escape

I own the terrible feelings that I feel in my body, mind and soul and I let them be. Somehow, allowing them to surface, instead of keeping them repressed, makes them go away. When I allow the murky, overwhelming and unpleasant feelings the room to make themselves known, I have learnt that overtime, they become… Continue reading Eating to escape

Paprika Shokudo (Osaka, Japan)

Went to this delicious place in Osaka called Paprika Shokudo! It's fully vegan! I am always worried about ordering pasta since I am so used to bland pasta sauces in most restaurants.

Simple drink idea here. If you are not in the mood to juice or you don't have a juicer or you don't want a smoothie, try this instead! I love ideas like these that are sooo simple that I can't justify reaching out for anything that is loaded with sugar or chemicals. Two ingredients! Coconut… Continue reading Grapefruit & coconut juice (no juicer needed!)
