One time I felt myself almost getting sick, so I loaded my blender with kale, papaya, strawberries, blackberries, and pineapple. I instantly felt a boost of energy and fewer symptoms; it was literally like a limitless pill. The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits of food that grows from the earth are miraculous. Food is medicine. 🙏🏿
Of course I plan to create a thorough travel review on Ghana, but I'll take this time to point out that every single person visiting Ghana should partake in the educational tours offered at the Slave Castles in Cape Coast. I've always learned about what happened to Africans as slaves in America, but this was my first time conceptualizing the torture they experienced on African soil before even entering the slave ship. It is even more devastating to face the reality that several forms of this cruelty still exist today. The only answer is love.
I didn't start intentionally eating raw avocados until last year when I learned about its cardiovascular benefits. Avocados contain high levels of monounsaturated facts that help decrease the rates of stroke and high cholesterol. Loaded with Vitamin K, fiber, potassium, and more. If you love yourself, get chu some. 💕🥑
This past weekend, a couple of my girls and I successfully made plant-based waffles with only FOUR ingredients. ✨ •1 cup of Spelt flour

Before I put anything in my temple, I like to evaluate whether it is contributing to my wellbeing. • Cucumbers: help remove free radicals and prevent cancer cell growth • Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans): loaded with protein, fiber, and improves digestion • Sweet potatoes: Vitamin A (supports healthy vision), Vitamin C (strengthens immune system), and Manganese (helps reduce inflammation). Get you a healthy meal boo.
I could never eat a boring salad. 💅🏿Organic kale, sautéed onions, sautéed red/green peppers, baked sweet potatoes, curry, basil, and a dash of Himalayan salt •• A great way to get Fiber, Calcium, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron and hopefully, one day, a @teyanataylor body.
