Once past the solstice, there’s no longer any doubt, the summer is here and we have to deal with it. Love ourself right now means detox and get the right power to get power without sacrificing taste.
This season the meals should be lighter and less consistent, preferring uncooked foods and taking many raw vegetables, rich in vitamins, fiber and water. Next to the vegetables, fruits, whole grains, dried fruit (maybe for snacks), the seeds used in seasonings, and legumes.
With this kind of feed, accompanied by morning exercises and moments of deep breathing to chase away all the stress, we get to the holidays in mental and physical perfection.
In all this, how to start the day?
My best way to have breakfast in this period is represented by this recipe: an oatmeal porridge with almond milk and red fruits. Oats are very nutritious and energetic, great to start the day with vitality, and high in protein, making it ideal for those who choose a diet devoid of animal proteins. Almond milk has an important contribution in unsaturated fats that are good for us and, finally, the red fruits like cherries are purifying and detoxifying, while blueberries, among other things, help the circulation in the hot season combating water retention.
As a drink to accompany the porridge I choose an extract of red fruits or, for a change, an antioxidant and energizing Matcha tea.
With joy I shared this recipe with Dalani, that in view of the summer has thought of helpful advice on the must-have of the summer not only with regard to the feed but also the fashion and travel.
