Keeping it simple for lunch, romaine with tomatoes,paprika,celery and cucumber noodles with a splash of lemon juice. Also had three mangoes before this!

Now let’s all just take a second and focus on what we have and how far we have gone. Be proud of whatever things you have accomplished in life even if they’re small. It’s not how big the accomplishment may be that counts but how true and life changing it was for you. Doesn’t matter if you’ve slipped one time or even a few, you still have accomplished something never forget that. It’s never too late to stand back on your feet. 
” Just keep swimming, just keep swimming “😉 (guess where that quote is from 😏)

Don’t try to fit in, to be like everyone else. Speak your mind not someone else’s. Be the one who stands out and shines, be unique and yourself. Cause at the end of the day there will always be someone to judge you. My advise ? Feel sorry for them, they’re only trying to make you feel bad because they have insecurities. Who knows, maybe they are scared of something or going through a rough time.

Papaya! After trying one of the best papayas (a few weeks ago) I’m constantly craving them and never seem to be getting enough! 
Am I the only one ? Haha 

Anyways have a lovely day beautiful souls! And carb up 🍌😊

A simple high carb dinner. Had around five bananas before this ☺️🍌, this is a big bowl with a head of lettuce with a cucumber and four mangoes. Sprinkled some orange juice and voila. 
Simple and delicious!

Do You Love Someone With Depression?
If you have a partner or are close to someone who struggles with depression, you may not always know how to show them you love them. One day they may seem fine, and the next they are sad, distant and may push you away. It is important that you know that as a person who is close to them and trusted by them, you can help your friend or partner have shorter, less severe bouts of depression. Mental illness is as real as physical illness (it is physical actually, read more about that here) and your partner needs you as much as they would need to be cared for if they had the flu.
Your relationship may seem one-sided during these times, but by helping your partner through a very difficult and painful affliction, you are strengthening your relationship and their mental health in the long term.
1. Help them keep clutter at bay.
When a person begins spiraling into depression, they may feel like they are slowing down while the world around them speeds up. The mail may end up in stacks, dishes can pile up in the sink, laundry may go undone as the depressed person begins to feel more and more overwhelmed by their daily routine and unable to keep up. By giving your partner some extra help sorting mail, washing dishes or using paper plates and keeping chaos in check in general, you’ll be giving them (and yourself) the gift of a calm  environment. (I’m a fan of the minimalist movement because of this, you can read more about that here.)
2. Fix them a healthy meal.
Your partner may do one of two things when they are in a depressed state. They may eat very little, or they may overeat. In either case, they may find that driving through a fast food restaurant or ordering a pizza online is just easier than fixing a meal. Eating like this, or neglecting to eat will only degrade your partner’s health, causing them to go deeper into their depression. Help your loved one keep their body healthy, and their mind will follow. This is a great article that talks about the “Brain Diet” which can help the symptoms of depression, and this article talks about how our modern diet could contribute to the recent rise in depression. Here is a recipe for a trail mix that is quick to make and has mood-boosting properties.
3.Get them outside.
 The benefits of getting outside for a depressed person are huge. And it is possibly the last thing on earth your partner will want to do. Take them to be somewhere in nature. Pack a picnic and lie in the sun, take a leisurely hike or plant a garden. Being barefoot in the dirt, or “earthing” helps ground the body and reverse the effects of living in a world of emf’s, and digging in soil can actually act as an antidepressant, as a strain of bacterium in soil, Mycobacterium vaccae, triggers the release of seratonin, which in turn elevates mood and decreases anxiety. Sunshine increases Vitamin D production which can help alleviate depression. My friend Elizabeth wrote an excellent post about Vitamin D and its link to depression here.  For more information about other sources of Vitamin D, this is a great post as well as this.
4. Ask them to help you understand what they’re feeling.
If your partner is able to articulate what they are going through, it will help them and you better understand what you are dealing with, and may give insight into a plan of action for helping your partner. Also, feeling alone is common for a depressed person and anything that combats that feeling will help alleviate the severity and length of the depression.
5. Encourage them to focus on self-care.
Depressed people often stop taking care of themselves. Showering, getting haircuts, going to the doctor or dentist, it’s all just too hard, and they don’t deserve to be well taken care of anyway in their minds. This can snowball quickly into greater feelings of worthlessness since “Now I’m such a mess, no one could ever love me”. Help your loved one by being proactive. Tell them “I’m going to do the dishes, why don’t you go enjoy a bubble bath?” can give them the permission they won’t give themselves to do something normal, healthy and self-loving.
6. Hug them.
Studies show that a sincere hug that lasts longer than 20 seconds can release feel-good chemicals in the brain and elevate the mood of the giver and receiver. Depressed people often don’t want to be touched, but a sincere hug with no expectation of anything further can give your partner a lift.
7. Laugh with them.
Telling a silly joke, watching a comedy or seeing a stand up comedian will encourage your partner to laugh in spite of themselves. Laughing releases endorphins and studies show can actually counteract symptoms of depression and anxiety.
8. Reassure them that you can handle their feelings.
Your partner may be feeling worthless, angry and even guilty while they are depressed. They may be afraid that they will end up alone because no one will put up with their episodes forever. Reassure them that you are in the relationship for the long haul and they won’t scare you away because they have an illness.
9. Challenge their destructive thoughts.
A depressed person’s mind can be a never-ending loop of painful, destructive thoughts. “I’m unlovable, I’m a failure, I’m ugly, I’m stupid”. Challenge these untruths with the truth. “You’re not unlovable, I love you. You aren’t a failure, here are all the things you’ve accomplished.”
10.Remind them why you love them.
Look at pictures of happy times you’ve had together. Tell them your favorite things about them. Reminisce about your relationship and all the positive things that have happened, and remind your partner that you love them and they will get through this.

More people need to know this.

This is so incredibly important. I’ve seen people with depression ostracized so many times, and I cannot stress how much it means to each and every person I’ve tried to reach out to after whatever “falling-outs” they’ve had due to depression. Remember to always be compassionate and kind to all friends like this, because you never know what they’re going through.

Eat an unlimited amount of carbs everyday and your body as well as the environment will thank you. Many people will think dairy,eggs,meat and fish is healthy. I’m sad to break the new for anyone but this isn’t true! Eating those toxins is the numb 1 cause of cancer and a countless of other diseases leading to death. We are being lied to! The society,the government are big fat liars relating only on money. What they care about is business and not our health. If you don’t believe do your own research. Go watch vegucated,forks over knives, food inc, read the 801010, or on adaptt.org , watch YouTube videos such as shown on freeleethebananagirl ‘s channel.
It’s scary how the government “cares” about us. Ask yourself, why are there so many ill people ? Why does even some die at a very young age ? The doctors will prescribe to us pills and antibiotics , they are being  sponsored by the pharmaceutical industries! You think they will make you feel better but they are destroying your immune system ! And injecting toxins into your body will not help but destroy your health. 
Invest in your health and not in doctors !
