As a fan of a healthy living I try to eat healthy 80% of my time. It is really unrealistic to eat really healthy 100% of your time. So it is better to accept you can’t be perfect. I don’t eat healthy because of a compulsion. It’s more a passion and happiness. When I was a child I was ill very often. I had pain and struggled with lots of body problems. When I changed my diet I feel it is really good for my body and wellbeing. The most important thing is to be happy and satisfied. A healthy diet is one part which helps me to feel good.
A healthy lifestyle is not only eating healthy.
It is more.
It’s to feel yourself.
It’s to learn what you really want
What is good for you.
Reducing time with people you can get energy from and reducing habits which are don’t good for you is a big part to learn what it means to be aware. I’m lucky to struggle with headache as soon as I stress myself or doing things I don’t want to do. In that way it’s easier to reduce whatever isn’t good for me. My body and soul speaks to me.
I made a big walk near the forest early in the morning to visit the sheep’s who are grazing. The morning light was so magical and I feel free and realize I don’t need much to be happy. Silence can help to realize who you are. Most of the people are afraid of being alone. It’s a kind of learning to be alone with the thoughts. Meditation can help as well. I meditate since 2 years every day. 15-20 minutes after work and it’s one of the best I ever started. The first steps are a little bit strange. But it became a kind of routine and you can’t live without.
Try it out and you will see what you really want, how you want to live and what’s important and what isn’t.
I’m the proud owner of a muffin tin. It’s a cheap and little kitchen tool but it’s so helpful. It’s really important for me my cakes or muffins turned out moisty. Dry pastry is a horror. So I try to find ingredients which makes my muffins more moisty. Yoghurt or apple sauce as well as bananas are such a great choice. I prefer yoghurt.
Apple pastry is one of my absolutely favorites! Everybody loves apples, they have a light sweetness so you can avoid sugar. I normally use only dates or rice syrup for my pastry because dates are a natural sweetener and better for your body.
