The Body Is A Temple: Body, Mind And Spirit

The sun was out today. I had a delicious bowl of raisin bran cereal, three bananas, five tangerines, and a full cup of refreshing cold soymilk for breakfast.

From the time I was a preteen I was dedicated to eating right. It became a way of life that only enhanced and grew even stronger as I became an adult.

It feels good to maintain a balanced diet within accordance to my own bodily constitution, and to take well care of my health as best I can. It is just a natural part of who I am.

Everything starts with the mind and how we view the world and the situations around us. I was predisposed to be led by spirit, an essence that took me to my inner being to manifest a more enriching path of life.

How we treat our bodies can affect us spiritually, as well as physically and mentally. There is a purposeful intertwine. A healthy spirit will not tolerate any impurities of any kind. It is a thrive that is meant to survive properly. Suitable to the force where the drive is inherited.

We are not to abuse the temples that we live in with harsh drugs/chemicals or anything else unethical and inappropriate.

I do not know what I am going to have for dinner. I have not decided yet. My taste buds will let me know later.

 

Healthy And Homemade: Popcorn Snack

The vegan lifestyle is very suitable for me. For over thirty-three years I have maintained a healthy balanced diet. I have been even more cautious of what I eat since last spring.

I consume less oils, salt (which I do not cook with at all) and I stopped eating products with, or loaded with added sugar.

One of my favorite natural and very healthy grains to snack on is popcorn. I always pop my own organic non-GMO brands that I purchase regularly.

Since I learned how to air-pop popcorn kernels in a non-stick pot I eat popcorn more frequently. There was a time I would pop the kernels in olive oil but now I can eat my popcorn as often as I want to without having to consume too much oil in my diet.

The high nutritional value of plain air-popped popcorn goes far up without the use of things like oils/butter, salt, cheeses and other toppings or dressings that people add on for enhanced flavor.

To me, popcorn popped and eaten in its natural state is totally delicious. The yellow popcorn tastes better to me than the white although I love them both.

A Rainy And Cloudy Day In Manhattan, New York/My Snapshots

When I arrived to Manhattan before 9.am. this morning it was raining.

The precipitation felt good, though, the drops weren’t coming down too hard at all it was refreshing.

By the time I was on my way home during the afternoon the rain had stopped completely yet the sky remained cloudy.

As I walked along the streets I took a few photos with my smartphone.

I brought my mother home a very healthy sandwich that contained chicken, tomato, garlic, kale, roasted onion and mozzarella heated on hero bread.

She told me how good the sandwich was and I was glad she enjoyed it.
