I find that as the seasons change, I tend to always end up with sinus issues and craving soups of all kinds to more or less steam my face and flush my system all at the same time.
This soup is beyond simple to make in very little time and has many added benefits. Miso itself, is high in antioxidants and aids in restoring probiotics to our our micro-biome, and because of the soy it is high in fibre and proteins. Although it has a high sodium content, studies have shown that it affects the cardiovascular system differently than table salt, for instance. It does not seem to affect the blood pressure as much. I refer to it as a healing soup because the binding agent of miso (zybicolin) acts as a detoxifying agent, that aids in elimination of pollution and artificial chemicals. It strengthens the immune system, chelates heavy metals and helps excrete them and, for vegetarians and vegans, is a great source of B vitamins (including B12) on top of the great antioxidant and probiotic benefits I just mentioned. On top of it, throwing in the kelp will aid in energy production(b vitamins), thyroid and metabolism maintenance and balance (iodine).
150 g rice noodles (prepared as per package)
4 tsp. miso + 6 c. water
1 head of broccoli, chopped
1 large carrot, shredded
1 small red onion, sliced thinly, julienne
4 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 c. baby spinach, chopped
½ c. firm tofu, 1 cm cubes
2 tbsp. kelp
1 tbsp. ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 chili, deseeded and chopped finely
scallions, chopped finely (optional)
1 tbsp. sriracha (optional)
Prepare noodles as per package, drain and set aside.
Add miso to water and cook over medium heat until just before it boils, then lower to simmer.
Add vegetables, kelp, tofu, ginger, garlic and sriracha (optional).
Run noodles through cold water until soft.
Add noodles to soup and mix well.
Remove from heat and serve immediately
Garnish with chopped chilli pepper and scallions and enjoy!
Today is such a beautiful day! ☀️ I am feeling a little under the weather so this morning’s breakfast was a little less than pretty, so here is lunch!

Bed of spinach and kale
¼ large yellow bell pepper
A few carrots chopped
½ c cooked quinoa
¼ large avocado
Dollop of sabra roasted red pepper hummus

Fruit is low in calories! Therefor you can eat more and lose weight! It will not make you fat! Balance out your diet with proteins and fats and you too can maintain a healthy physique. Replace your calorie dense foods like breads and cereals with some fruit and low fat yogurt like I have! I’m super satisfied and ready to hit the gym!
100g each of mango, strawberries and pineapple with 170g tub of @chobaniau yogurt! So this meal is is 470grams in total weight! My normal oats and protein powder is around the same calories but weighs only 45grams in total. I love my oats but if you like to eat more food but less calories. This is how you do it!

Hello everyone!!!!! Tomorrow I will be starting the #springcleanchallenge ! It will commence over a 10 day span and will cover various ways in which we can clean clutter, debris, and toxins from all aspects of our life. I will start the 10 day challenge off with a full body detox, more details on this tomorrow! I will fully participate in all topics discussed over the next 10 days. Other topics I will cover include, clean eating and detox super foods, decluttering around the home and spring cleaning products that you can actually make yourself easily with no toxins in them. I will also talk about how to cleanse the body of negative or cluttering thoughts and suppressed emotions, yoga postures that can help detoxify the body, ways to detoxify and declutter the environment, how to clarify or refocusing intentions, goals, and dreams, and finally I will finish the 10 day spring clean with a concept I like to call trade for a trade. I promise this will be inspirational, informative and empowering. I hope you will follow along and consider participating too each day. Please # springcleanchallenge if you want to participate and share! My intention with this challenge is to remove the clutter, distractions, toxins, and debris that get in the way of living a happier healthier more fulfilling life. Very excited to see the results of this! #springclean #spring #detox #cleanse #detoxify #gethealthy #motivation #instadaily #inspiration #yogicleanse #beinspired #challenge #instablog #health #fitness #healthyyogi #healthcoach #nutrition #healthblog #dailyhealth #dailyinspiration #10daychallenge #getfit #healthyliving #healthyrecipes
Mix dry ingredients, set aside.
Mash 2 bananas, add the almond milk and egg whites and mix. Add the dry and wet ingredients. If the batter is too thick, add equal parts of almond milk and egg whites. Line your mold with parchment paper, pour the batter and bale for 375F for 30-40 mins.

Yesterday, I talked about detoxing the body either using a kit or by simply following an anti inflammatory diet. Today, I wanted to talk more about the concepts of inflammation, toxins, disease, and how this is directly related to what you are eating. Maybe you have heard of the acronym SAD - aka the Standard American Diet. The SAD is full of foods that increase acidity in the body, encouraging the buildup of toxins, and inflammation, increasing the risk of chronic illness, weight gain/obesity, certain cancers, and even early death. The SAD diet includes harmful ingredients like: refined carbs, wheat, starch, white sugar and bleached flour, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners/coloring/flavors, and trans fats, along with other various harmful chemicals and drugs.
As a rule of thumb, the less ingredients on the label the better, and if you don’t know what the ingredient is, or you can’t pronounce the name YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN’T BE EATING IT!!! Always remember that THE HEALTHIEST FOODS ARE THE ONES WITH NO LABEL AT ALL!! Thats right - it’s fruits and vegetables :D
By replacing harmful inflammatory causing foods with alkaline plant foods, you flood your body with vitamins, minerals, cancer and disease fighting phytochemicals, antioxidants, fiber etc. Eating your veggies is a very powerful source of healing that each of us has the potential to tap into!!! Including more of these in your diet might just have you enjoying side effects like: clear and glowing skin, relief from constipation, increased energy, clear sinuses, weight loss, restful sleep, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, balanced blood sugar, improved mood, higher sex drive, and much much more.
So what are you waiting for…. fill your fridge with organic produce.. things like: broccoli, kale, spinach, asparagus, zucchini, beets, cabbage, carrots, apples, berries, etc. Choose healthy alternatives to white starchy processed foods, things like brown rice, quinoa, legumes, and steal cut oats. Limit red meats and chose lean meats like organic free range chicken, or wild salmon, cod or tilapia. Choose healthy fats like avocado, coconut, or olive oil, over canola oil or processed vegetable oils. You can even cut back on dairy (which is one of the top causes of inflammation in the bowel, and replace it with almond, rice, or coconut milk. So many options!!
I know a lot of people say, they don’t like these kinds of foods because they don’t taste good. I would argue that there are tons of amazing healthy food blogs and recipe books out there, full of delicious meal ideas just waiting to be tried! The trick is to incorporate your own flare, make it fun, play with flavours and spices, and let the magic happen! That way you enjoy what you are eating! Here are a couple of food bloggers I follow who have excellent recipe ideas: 1)Deliciously Ella, 2) Oh she glows - Angela Lidden, 3) Cookie and Kate 4) My heart beets, and 5) A pinch of yum - Lindsay. You can easily google any of these to find their pages and browse through their delicious, healthy, free recipes.
I hope that after reading this you will have a better understanding of why clean eating is so important to your health, happiness, and wellbeing. Taking care of your body is the most rewarding thing you can every do for yourself. So go ahead, clean out the pantry and fridge today, look up some delicious healthy meals, and then fill your fridge with fruits and veggies :)
Remember dearest friends, skills on the battlefield and even in the temple are not adequate enough in maintaining the longing gaze of the dutchess or duke in your life. You must wow them with culinary skills, acquired in the library and applied in the galley. I solidified my prowess with honeyed chicken, sautéed baby potatoes and roasted mushroom salad in rice wine. #thewordofthegoldenone @latsbrah #bodybuilding #vegan #paleo #diet #nocarb #getfit #cleaneating #active #diet #strong #cardio #training #legday #squat #muscle #weightlifting #eatclean #exercise #porridge #healthyrecipes #recipe #healthylifestyle #protein #shredded #fitness #ireland #galway

Home Made chicken pumpkin salad with pearl couscous! Could have done without the balsamic but very yum! In comp season I could not think of anything worse than salad, but this off season all I crave is yummy healthy salads! I’ve been using a lot of pumpkin because it fills up the salad and my tummy and is super low calorie so I can have more of it and other yummy things! This will help you feel more satisfied and help you lose weight at the same time!!
Mix 1 scoop of chosen protein powder (I had the peanut butter marshmallow from Cellucor which was HEAVEN) with 1/3C of chosen milk with cinnamon and vanilla extract to make a protein pudding.
Mix in a serving of cooked brown or white rice (I used a brown rice and quinoa mix) and warm in the microwave for 30-60s to allow the pudding to soak into the rice.
I had mine with 100g of banana and Hersey’s choc sauce (carbs carbs carbs on a big training day!)
Without the extra toppings..
