INTUITIVE EATING

What does it mean? It means listening to your gut feeling, listening to what your body desires. In this day and age the average person is guided by anything but his or her intuition.

THE ELUSIVE

Energy; the connection to your soul, the mystical, the invisible, the spiritual, the intangible, the elusive or just that one feeling. 

LINSEED • WATER

It doesn’t get any easier than this. I wish I had come up with this myself, but no, it just popped up somewhere online. And as all recipes in the world are actually spin-offs of some existing recipe, I invite you to try my recipes and then give them your own twist, that’s the fun part. Play.

CHOCOLATE • DATE

Fast, gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free sweets are my jam. When I started changing my diet years ago, sugar was the biggest bitch to kick, especially when pms came into play. This made me come up with many easy and quick solutions to satisfy any sweet craving in a responsible way. Here is one of the recipes. You can play with this recipe by adding different seasonings.

THE DREAM

If I could rearrange the world I would do it with less rules, guidelines and control, and with more love and space. I choose to listen to my soul’s desires on a level I haven’t done before.

OATS • SEEDS

Unfortunately there are not many kinds of bread that my body tolerates. I experimented with baking sourdough bread for a while, but I liked it a bit too much, and before I knew it I was eating bread every day.

PAY WHAT YOU WANT

Money and what it’s worth. What is it actually? Now if you’re a starter, have just finished your studies, you can’t buy or rent a house because the bank, the landlord, society is afraid that you can’t pay for it. Apparently living is only for the elite these days. I do not understand. My knowledge about the financial world is minimal, but looking in from the outside, it looks like a fairy tale that unnecessarily classifies humanity. 

QUITTING

All my life I’ve been busy quitting things and so I have become a self-proclaimed quitting expert ; ) Alcohol was the first to go. Alcohol was easy for me, it was not an addiction. The fact that I had given up alcohol was harder to accept for those around me than it was for me.

MEDITATION, COFFEE AND LIES

I often hear that people strive for silence in meditation; the ambition to be thoughtless, to silence the mind. My starting point however is being with my thoughts. Look at the thoughts that pass by; what issues are thoughts associated with? The subject of your thoughts is what occupies your mind but you can look at them, research them, as they are the ones you have not yet found peace with.

MEAL PREP

Preparation is crucial with my way of eating. After years of trying and figuring out stuff, it’s now a state of being. It no longer feels like a task, it comes naturally and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Because it is integrated within me, I find it difficult to write something about it that can help you. But I’m going to try.
