What is intuitive eating?

What is intuitive eating?

Guest post by Lauren Aletta, Intuitive Coach, Inner Hue

If I was to ask you right now how you feel about eating and exercise how would you answer?

Are you getting sensations across your body?

What thoughts are springing to mind?

Has your energy shifted?

Does a heaviness or lightness descend upon you?

Do you feel inspired and ignited or constricted and lethargic?

My question is… have you ever considered that these feelings and physical sensations are speaking to you, trying to guide you into delightful alignment?

4 hassle-free tips for healthy plant-based eating on the run

Easy snack of rice crackers, spinach, carrot, tahini and pepitas

We’ve all had those days. The ones where the clock seems to move at triple speed as we rush from one job to another, barely stopping to take a breath in between.

It feels like an uphill battle just to keep on top of the basics and the notion of cooking up something healthy gets relegated to some forgotten backwater of our minds.

Often when life gets crazy tear-your-hair-out busy, it just seems easier to fall back on a diet of greasy takeaway meals, chips and chocolate snacks, and mountains of coffee. Right at the time that our poor stressed bodies are crying out for nourishing, real food!

How to do a 3 day juice cleanse

Cashew, vanilla, maca, dates, filtered water juice

A couple weeks back I embarked my very first juice cleanse. I’d just returned from a fabulous whirlwind trip in Spain and France that involved a lot of eating and way too much drinking. I was feeling kinda toxic and very pudgy around the edges.

I made plans to do my fave seasonal detox from Emily over at Triumph Wellness but I wanted a little extra boost to get me started – something to really kickstart the detoxy goodness. A juice cleanse seemed like a great idea.

There were a few little flaws in my plan though. Firstly, I’d never done a juice cleanse before (where does one even begin?). Secondly, I really enjoy food (I mean REALLY enjoy it). Finally, and probably most importantly, I actually don’t own a juicer. Hmmmm. What to do… Continue Reading →
