Great fresh vegan meals are soon to be served at YogaOnCrete’s large communal dining table.
Join me for the Joyful Living Crete Retreat (21st-26th June).
The third of the five Joyful Living themes is Eat joyfully: how to eat what your body needs.
The food you take in makes a big difference to your day, but first make sure your food goes out! Rehydrating your body does wonders to kick start your digestion. I drink a liter and a half of lukewarm water and herbal tea every morning, ideally before starting my yoga routine.
Then it’s time to think about food! What are you craving? What does your body need? If you’re fighting a cold, add turmeric or echinacea to your smoothie. If you’re anticipating a demanding day, make a filling breakfast, like oatmeal. I mostly eat fruit and vegetables to complement the body’s nightly detox. Think of breakfast literally — better not to break your fast with a huge meal.
