Simply because ‘we humans' need those basic things in life to feel restored, nourished, energized and happier. But I suppose we all tend to forget this about ourselves sometimes. And with all the challenges one can have ‘to find time,’ to feed our bodies with all those simple things, it always feels amazing once going back to the basics of life. And yes, from time to time we need to stop. And give our bodies a natural cleanse and a rest to feel restore and get that extra boost of energy. And believe me, I’m looking forward to taking that nap this weekend.
As always as would love to hear from you and tell me your experience!
Just remember to avoid refined sugars, starches, and all kind of processed food.
REST + RELAX
And now, the recipes!
