Watermelon Way 

Watermelon is known as a body-healing fruit, it is full of amazing health benefits, especially during the summer season. 

The fruit is incredibly hydrating, it is the best time to indulge in this fresh, melon, as it has to offer an array of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. 

It makes a great gift on a hot day. If you eat watermelon on a daily basis, it can improve your cardiovascular health and protect your eyes and immune system.

Thankfully, watermelon is one of those fruits we can all agree on. It’s refreshing and delicious, and it’s the perfect addition to backyard barbeques, pool parties and 4th of July celebrations. 

 

Watermelon can also boost your mood and improve your focus because of the presence of vitamin B6–which is a crucial nutrient that is responsible for calming the nerves.

Pairing Pasta with Sauce | Bon Appétit

Matching pasta shapes to sauces play a bigger part in sauce pairings. Choosing the right pasta depends on the topping. 

Tubular shapes like penne and ziti are perfect with thick sauces 

Wide, flat pastas like pappardelle are ideal for soaking up creamy sauces, the wider the noodle, the heavier the sauce.

Long, round pastas like spaghetti are best with olive oil- and tomato-based sauces. 

Chunky vegetable sauces absolutely go better with short pastas 

Choosing a pasta shape to suit the nature of your sauce makes a big difference to the finished dish.

Peace with Food

Intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your  mind, body, and food, where you ultimately become the expert of your own body.

You learn how to identify between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of self-confidence through body wisdom.

It’s also a process of making peace with the relationship towards food—so that you no longer have constant “food-related anxiety” thoughts.  It’s knowing that your health and your worth as a person do not change, because you ate a food that you had labeled as “bad” or “fattening”.

The underlying premise of Intuitive Eating is learning to respond to your inner body signal cues, because you were born with all the wisdom you need for eating intuitively. On the surface, this may sound simplistic, but can be rather complex.

This inner wisdom is often clouded by years of dieting and food illusions that abound in the culture. Give yourself unconditional love and permission to eat.

When you tell yourself that you can’t or shouldn’t have a selective food, it can lead to intense feelings of detriment that build into unmanageable cravings and, often, bingeing When you finally cave – in to your forbidden food, eating will be experienced with such intensity, resulting in overeating, and overwhelming guilt.

Honor where you are at. Find ways to comfort, nurture, and resolve your issues without using food. Anxiety, boredom, anger are emotions we all experience throughout life. Each has its own trigger, and each has its own moderation. Food does not fix any of these feelings either does alcohol and other alter substances.

Intuitive eating is a philosophy of eating that makes you the ace of your body and its signals. It teaches that you are the best person – the only person – to make new loving and healthy choices.

Intuitive Cooking 

Udon, Soba, Shirataki Authentic noodles are a staple part of Japanese cuisine and we love them! 

By using imagination, intuition and patience, creative intuitive cooking means being completely present in the entire process and trusting your inner chef! 

Becoming more attuned to different foods and flavors using your intuition in the kitchen is the language of intuitive cooking. 

At best it’s about tuning into our intuition and rebuilding the relationship and trust with our bodies and inner voice.
