Being healthy doesn’t mean I don’t eat!

Originally posted on HANO KITTY I A lifestyle blog on food, style, mind, body & soul ♡:

I’m such a major health foodie cliche fanatic, that my friends think it’s a super laughable and terrific (uh, ok) idea If I dressed up like a romaine lettuce for Halloween this year.

WHAT?

OK, so it’s true I get overexcited about anything that’s healthy, organic, nutrient-rich, seasonable, pasteurized, sustainable, eco-friendly, cruelty free, non-GMO, low sodium, low sugar, etc., because I REALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT I PUT INTO MY BODY. It hit me one day that my body is my own, I have control over it, and I’m only given this one opportunity to take good care of it. I realized that when I put my self-care & love above anything else, I feel happier, I have a more positive outlook on life, I’m more confident, and have learned to maintain better relationships with family and friends. I feel complete, and I feel like the REAL ME.

I’m seen as a picky eater because I’m extra…

Tomato Vermicelli Soup

About:

Semiya/Vermicelli is commonly used for breakfast in various forms like Upma. Here there’s a delicious way to make them heartier. The base of the soup is mainly tomatoes but the addition of the vermicelli, carrot, onion just makes everything click together.

Tomato carrot soup is one of the most simplest and easy soup recipes. The soup has the sweetness of carrots and onion, along with the slight tanginess of tomatoes, garlic in the soup gives a slight sharpness with the earthy flavour of cumin.

Usually noodles are included in the soup but here replace noodles with the Vermicelli, it can be personalised as per the taste and preference.

This soup is kids friendly too and if making for kids then skip black pepper.

Yields: 3-4servings
Preparation time: 15mins

Ice Massage For A Sports Injury

Originally posted on Blood, Sweat & Knowledge:

runner

Ice Massage is one of the most effective ways to treat a soft tissue injury. Icing injuries can be one of the most important immediate treatment steps for acute injuries such as sprains and strains, overuse injuries, contusions and bruises.

Why Ice a Soft Tissue Injury?

Applying ice to a soft tissue injury can help reduce swelling and inflammation by reducing blood flow to the injured area. Ice also provides temporary pain relief after an acute or traumatic injury. In order to get the best result, it’s important to ice the injury during the 48 hours after the injury, before the swelling becomes advanced.

Ice therapy that reduces the temperature of the injured tissues by 10 to 15 degrees for short, repeated periods of time also appear to have the best results.

For Soft Tissue Injury, Ice Massage Is Best

Ice massage is the most effective method of applying ice to an injury. The research regarding the use of ice…
