about living my nature
“ Living with nature”
“ Living naturally”
“ We are nature”
“We relax and we heal when we are surrounded by nature.
You know why? That’s because we ARE nature”.
I still remember vividly the words that my first yoga teacher told us when I took yoga teacher training in 2012.
Living in this modern society with full of technology we get detached from nature that universe provides us.
As we evolved and became “smarter”, we left behind something important, that fact that “we are part of nature.
Processed foods with tons of additives, sedentary life style, chronic stress, blue light and society’s rules… and so on. This life style that has become “normal” in the modern world is not “normal” to our body or how we are created to live in!
This mismatch can create many chronic diseases both physically and mentally.
I believe that we work “right” and live our best when we connect ourselves and be aligned with nature which we are part of.
Nature like trees, sun, and plants do have strong healing power to us and have therapeutic effects physically, mentally and spiritually.
Living My Nature is created to share my passion for nature, real food cooking, and holistic life style of my life journey to become more aligned with my true nature.
I hope to inspire other people by doing so.
about my recipe
- Real food, minimally processed
Our body is made to consume real food! Our body has ability to heal and flourish when it is given right ingredients. I share the recipes with ingredients that are close to nature as possible.
- Nourishing to the body, mind and the spirit
I believe that one of the important elements of healthy eating is to enjoy food.
As I grown up eating Japanese food which is full of Umami, my taste buds have been ‘trained’ catch delicate and subtle flavors. Yes, I know how to create beautiful harmony of Umami from each ingredient!
Enjoy these not only healthy but also tasty, pretty and lovely recipes !
- Japanese inspired healthy recipes
I share healthy recipes with Japanese essence as well as any nourishing dishes that get inspired by.
When I lived abroad I was fascinated by foods with spices, unfamiliar ingredients, and condiments that I had never experienced in Japan.
Since then I was into these ‘new’ and ‘exciting’ western style dishes and holistic healthy eating for quite a long time being ignorant about the Japanese healthy traditional foods that had been utilized for centuries.
After settling back in Japan for several years I started to see how we are fortunate to have variety of nutritious and healing foods like seaweeds, many kinds of fish and various fermented foods in this country.
Japanese foods have been gaining attention for its health benefits as well as their delicate flavors.
Living My Nature would love to introduce them to you with my unique style dishes of integrating western and Japanese essences.
I am hoping you enjoy these healing, nourishing and delicious Japanese inspired dishes to make the most of your journey to the health!
I believe that we are at our best when we live where we are supposed to be, physically, mentally and spiritually.
As we grow up, we are taught by parents, schools and even by peers to live up to society’s standard to “fit in”. We are exposed to highly processed foods which are so palatable that can make you “addicted” to and eventually, you become numbed to these artificial additives that your body does not agree with.
In this busy society we rarely connect with our inner-selves whether it is physical or spiritual. Actually we are never taught in school how to.
The goal of human body is to stay safe and survive and it tries hardest to achieve them .
However if it is neglected either by being given ‘unnatural ‘ food, unmanaged chronic stress, or constant negative thoughts, eventually it starts to lose the internal balance which then, shows up as symptoms and become ‘ill’.
Our bodies thrive and even have ability to heal when given the right environment.
It can be healthy food and life style, natural skin care products, positive people around you and most importantly, having loving kindness attitude to ourselves.
However, health and happiness cannot be obtained just by following text book example of “healthy” life style.
Being healthy is not about following perfect diet, not about beating up yourself in they gym to get “perfect” body, or not about forcing yourself to do meditation when you absolutely hate it but do it anyway because everyone is doing it.
My message here is that in order to stay healthy and happy you need to be in balance both physically mentally and spiritually.
I share my journey,experiences and holistic health information that helped me to be more authentic ‘me’ and I hope they inspire you as you go along with your journey too.
