You see magical things can happen when we tune in and pay close attention to our body’s inner wisdom. I can’t quite explain the feeling, but I’m choosing to honor it and allow it to lead..Studies have shown how eating a predominantly whole food plant-based diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes can reduce our risk from many of the diet and lifestyle related illnesses like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke,obesity, hypertension and can even improve memory and mood and that’s because our gut bacteria 🦠 is in constant communication with our brain hence making what we put in our body that much more important..Today’s recipes is an easy and quick delicious split yellow lentil curry made in an insta pot
