Healthy recipes are just as essential to a self-care practice as is taking time for relaxing or doing what you love. With warmer weather upon us, I figure it’s a good time to share some of my go-to resources for nutritious recipes that don’t slack on delicious.
An inspired life is more accessible when we nourish our bodies. Just because we’re not solely our body doesn’t mean we need to disvalue the physical part of who we are and what we came here to do.
The body is a valuable piece of the puzzle, and what we put into our bodies has an incredible impact on how alive and capable we feel.
Thankfully, when it comes to seeking out healthy recipes that feed our whole selves, there’s no shortage of inspiration. The internet abounds with options that cater to pretty much every need and taste.
As I move through the process of incorporating more simple nourishment into my daily diet, I thought it would be nice to share the websites I find helpful. Maybe, it’ll help you sift through the abundance of options out there.Create healthy habits that make you feel empowered, not restrictions that make you feel deprived. tell a friend
Since I began sharing my writing online, I’ve sprinkled some healthy recipes here (like these chocolatey desserts) and there (like these no-bake energy bites) to complement the self-care journey. (Oh, have you seen these adaptogen drinks?)
Through my writing and sharing, I’ve come across some resources worth pointing out. If you’ve been reading my posts for a while, you might notice some of these. Whether or not you do, take a gander to see if any speak to you.
