Harmony comes in all shapes, sizes, feelings, and even flavors. Acai bowls have become my post workout rewards as of late. A little something that brings healthiness to my hectic lifestyle.
What healthy habit has brought some harmony in your life?
This week’s photo challenge is one that I’m quite curious to undertake. I’m always one to try to find colorful subjects and scenery that is bursting with light and airiness. Shadows and depths are the types of components that I want to experiment and incorporate into my photography.
I’m far from being vegetarian. In fact, I jokingly call myself a “flexitarian” (a part-time vegetarian). I do my best to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my diet as often as I can. It’s not always easy because I’m so accustomed to eating meat and processed foods. So, a few years ago, I decided to be more mindful of what I put into my body and how I treat my body. I read more health articles and I incorporate the use of apps like Fooducate and Water My Body into my lifestyle. I try to eat less meat and more vegetables. I even have a Nutribullet that I use to make all sorts of juice.
But with all the reading and mindfulness, I never got around to having wheatgrass– until today. And now, having tried it, I’m glad that I made the choice. Don’t get me wrong, it still tastes like freshly mowed grass and has an undesirable aftertaste. I’m still glad I drank the shot. I figure that I could have had a glass of soda/coffee/shake/smoothie, but it would just do more bad than good. I would only regret the empty calories and how it’ll just make me feel sluggish and unsatisfied.
I’m hoping that this choice to down wheatgrass shots instead of soda will help me to make more healthy choices and substitutions.
Making any changes health wise? Let me know in the comments below.
I don’t think I will ever get over how beautiful sunsets are here on Guam. For me, scenes like this have a way of reminding me more about the good things that happened during the day. And if my day wasn’t so well, sunsets also console me with the prospect of another day. So even if the sun wanes and the temperatures drop, sunsets carry it’s own warmth and renewal.

I snapped this shot while I was waiting for a holiday party to commence. The ballroom was bedecked in sheer fabrics and loads of sparkle.
For me, sunsets seem to bring out the best colors and when coupled with clouds, they produce bursts of color and light. The above photo was taken a couple of weeks ago while I was on my way to dinner. I’m glad that I was able to capture this natural work of art.
