Choose a healthy lifestyle – This one is stuffed bell peppers at best!

Healthy eating is not always boring. Hope you checked out my article! If not, I would highly recommend checking for some cool options to try when you want to eat healthy while not starving.

Your pantry, fridge, food choices must make sure you’re nourishing your body in a way that makes your cells dance!! One of the biggest causes of fat that won’t go away and sugar cravings are food full of sugars (real or fake) and artificial ingredients! 

What I am not about:

– deprivation
– fad diets & detox teas
– body shaming
– unsustainable programs
– being a slave to a weight goal
– an ALL or NONE mentality
– punishing your body

What I AM about:

– clean eating & whole foods
– understanding science-backed approaches
– mixing Eastern medicine & herbs with our Western lifestyle
– nourishing our body for fuel & pleasure
– supporting & enhancing our body’s natural detoxification abilities
– educating ourselves to how GOOD we are meant to feel
– utilizing food as preventative wellness
– balance, baby!

I follow a routine of eating small portions every two hours and that’s worked out really well for me so far. I tried this new recipe – Stuffed bell peppers and I am happy to share with my readers.
