I cannot believe it has been a year since I began my Instagram account @TheBalancedRose, originally @Roseinthe_Kitchen! Happy 1st birthday! Woohooo! (Sorry, I am just super excited!) Quite the year it has been, so full of growth, of rebirth and of falling apart, ups, downs, amazing memories, and trying moments, but such a beautiful and wonderful journey along the way. I thought a celebration recipe was in order so I thought back to one of my favorites.
Wow. Words cannot describe how amazed I feel and truly blessed I feel. I have had the unbelievable honor of sharing my story “A Journey to Self-Acceptance” on The Body Book‘s website. Like, holy cow! I am so humbled and so appreciative of all of the support by my friends, peers, and all of my followers, and even complete strangers!
TRUE LIFE: I am obsessed with turmeric- I think that should be an episode. I love turmeric and all of its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. This wonderful golden spice does wonders for our bodies at the cellular level as well as our bodies as a whole. As I discussed a few posts back, turmeric’s main active ingredient is curcumin, which contributes to the amazing effects turmeric has on the body. It contains high levels of manganese, iron, vitamin B6, fiber, copper, and potassium, and is a quite strong but extremely safe anti-inflammatory.
Being a college student, I am constantly on-the-go, running from the gym to class to my internship, meals in tote in recycled take-out containers or in plastic bags. I basically always have two things on my person, my camelbak water bottle, and my lunch box. Oh and we can’t forget about the fact that, because I am a college student buying my own groceries, the budget is quite tight. Meals need to be relatively cheap and quick, which I have been much better at this semester! *Patting myself on the back*
