Its been a few months since I did a post like this, so I thought it was time for another. In my daily search for health, wellness and happiness, I always come across numerous things that are just too awesome to let them pass me by. Here are 5 things that I’m enjoying at the moment which you may enjoy becoming involved with too:-
When I was diagnosed with cancer last year, I literally did feel like my life flashed before my eyes. To be honest, I wasn’t happy with what I saw. Since then, I have made a lot of changes to how I perceive situations, what is important to me, loving myself a whole lot more, what I eat and the list goes on. As a result of that, I truly feel that only now, have I really started living the life I was supposed to live, it’s just unfortunate that I had to have cancer to ‘wake-up’. But I have learnt from the experience and I can share what I have learnt with you, so that you never have to go through a life threatening diagnosis in order to have a good think about your life. A good way to think about it is this. If you had 3mnths left to live, would you be happy to carry on living the life that you’re living now and leave this world feeling satisfied that you were living an authentic and fulfilled life? I know it may not be as black and white as that, but maybe it’s time to scrutinise how you are living your life and be honest with yourself about areas that you are not so happy with that you could change. Don’t wait for a life changing event to make the changes needed. What are you waiting for?

I believe that being healthy shouldn’t be painful, restrictive and time-consuming. Being healthy is not about counting calories or denying yourself the foods that you love. True health and wellbeing is about making smarter food choices. I truly believe that if people educated themselves on how to cook from scratch, learnt about what foods their bodies really needed and started observing and listening to what their bodies were crying out for instead of eating emotionally, we would all be well on our way to leading much healthier, happier lives. After all, what we eat affects the way that we feel, look, behave and sleep and ultimately how and when we die (unless you die of something totally unrelated to your health), so it would make sense to ensure that you make smart food choices at least 80% of the time. Below are 10 easy healthy alternatives to foods that you think you love:-
Salt, is salt, is salt, right? No not really, it depends what has been done to it. The worst kind of salt you can have in your pantry is normal plain old table salt. Table salt has been stripped of most of its natural health promoting minerals just to look more aesthetic. It may look lovely and white, but it doesn’t do you any good at all! An easy and simple change that you can make is to buy unprocessed sea salt or Himalayan salt which still has all of its very important minerals which has not been stripped just to look good. Rule of thumb is, the whiter the salt looks the worse it is for you…the more colourful it is the better it is for you. This is an easy and cheap change to make in your pantry and the benefits will be numerous.

This is a heart warming, healthy and easy recipe which you can whip up in a flash. Seriously this recipe is so fast to make and once you have chucked everything in the pot you can sit back and relax for 45mins. My meat loving husband commented last night “this is seriously very tasty!”, quite something for someone who likes meat at every meal! With the cold weather on its way, I thought it would be a good idea to post a few of my soup recipes. Until a year ago I had never really tried cooking soup, but I’m glad I tried because once you have done a few, they are pretty easy to do. Below is the recipe for the tomato and bean soup. If you have a meat loving husband or family, you can grill some bacon and add it right at the end. Here it is:
