I’m so happy you stopped by The Blissful Plate and I’d like to share my story with you. I grew up in Poland, but I always had a desire to travel and see the world. I was filled with wanderlust, so there I was small city girl on the way to the biggest city in the world – New York! After living there one year I decided it’s time for something new so there I was again, packed my suitcase, and flew all the way on the other side of the country – sunny California!
I created The Blissful Plate to share my passion for creating healthy, delicious plant based food nutritious and yummy!
This is really when I started falling in love with food all over again. For me, it is about listening to my body. Eating when you are hungry and stopping when you aren’t. Easy like that you would think, but we all know it’s not. It is a journey to teach yourself to listen your body without being fooled by your brain telling you to eat one more slices, one more piece.. Once you develop that skill you will find that a plant-based lifestyle based around fruits, veggies, legumes, and whole foods grains is the right choice for you. Plant based food can be so delicious and it really has made me feel healthy, happy, and nourished.
After being plant based for some time, I started experimenting with raw food and that’s how i started #RawTuesday. I really love eating raw, it keeps me satisfied but not too full, energized and light. Eating fully raw once a week has been great and I’m happy I started it!
Now I am in a place where I feel like I’m ready for a next step. That’s why I’ve decided to start 8 weeks detox. Starting with 2 weeks preparations to go fully raw for 4 weeks, to then go to 80/20 diet. Which means 80% of my meals will be raw and 20% will be cooked.
I am not ready to go fully raw forever or even for longer period of time. I am not there yet, or maybe never will be (and that’s ok). I believe that way of eating will be the best for me and will satisfy me the most.
Stay updated for my more delcious recipes and follow my journey!
