Golden Beets + Boiled Beets Recipe (Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo, Keto) πŸ₯¬ Golden beets, aka Beta Vulgaris, are underground edible roots. Although not as famous as their red counterparts, they are often favored for the beautiful golden color, smoother texture and milder and sweeter flavor. Due to their nutrient density, they are highly acclaimed by nutritionists and have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. All beets have a high level of nitrates, which has been related to lowering blood pressure, preventing dementia and enhancing sports performance. The betalains found in them are anti-inflammatory, detoxing and serve as antioxidants. With golden beets, you are also gaining nutrients found in most other orange and yellow vegetables, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and beta-carotene, in addition to folate, manganese, copper, potassium and fiber. In Europe, they have been used as a liver tonic and as a way to purify the blood. They’ve also been used to treat health challenges such as anemia, indigestion, heart disease, kidney disorders and more. You can’t beet that! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•Read more about where and when to find them, store them, and cook them >>> Including my mom’s amazing boiled beet recipe πŸ˜‹ Link is in bio!!

Celiac disease x Lyme disease x Mental Health Awareness Month Hola! πŸ‘‹πŸ½ I’ve noticed a lot of new faces around here, and I would love to reintroduce myself during a month I hold near and dear. My name is Christina (she/her/ella), and I am passionate about travel, as well as physical and mental health. I am diagnosed with celiac disease, and healing from Lyme, Bartonella, MCAS, Sjogren’s, POTS, Lupus + more, which have led me to live a gluten-free, and mostly plant-based, refined sugar-free, lowered-histamine and toxic-free lifestyle. I sometimes have challenging days, or hours, however, I do not let them or my diagnoses identify me. I also don’t let my dietary restrictions stop me from doing what I love, like traveling (it’s slowly happening!), or eating a delicious meal, and I hope that the information posted here and on the blog (link in bio) will allow you to feel confident enough to say the same. I also launched the #beginwithinjournal for chronic illness and mental wellness last year that you should totally check out @beginwithintoday πŸ“’πŸ’• Fun facts: I’m Greek πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·, and speak 3.5 languages (Greek, English, Spanish, et un peu Francais). I’m also a freelance writerπŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’», psychotherapist (LCSW) @beginwithintoday, artist, pup mom to @cowboy.doodle , wannabe chef, owner of Joshua Tree’s first and only gluten-free and holistic AirBnb @casa.erimos (book now!!!), co-founder of @glutenfree_sandiego_meetups , advisory board member for @rideoutlyme + group support facilitator for @sandiegolymealliance @bayarealymefoundation proud double @uclaalumni 🐻, with an MLIS from @sjsu πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ«. Last but not least, I was inspired to start @buenqamino after walking the #CaminodeSantiago πŸŽ’, a 500-mile pilgrimage across northern Spain. β€œBuen Camino” (to wish someone a good path in Spanish) is commonly said to pilgrims on the Camino... But, the β€œc” was already taken, and hence the β€˜q’ in @BuenQamino 😹Now, tell me one interesting fact about yourself! I would love to learn more about you, and anything you’d like to see me write about or feature in the future πŸ™ŒπŸ½.

🏝#TravelTuesday is taking my back to visiting the Uros (floating) Islands of Lago (Lake) Titicaca, in the Andes Mountains of Peru & Bolivia. The world’s highest navigable lake, and said to be the birthplace of the Incas. The #UrosIslands contain 70 man-made totora reed islands that roughly 2,000-4,000 #Uros tribe members still live on. The tribe pre-dates Incan civilization and created the islands in order to evade enemies. They financially survive off selling various goods, like eggs in town, and handmade goods to tourists who visit the islands. The islands need to be maintained throughout the year because of the reeds rotting, and an island can be expected to last around 30 years. Despite first glance, solar panels, tvs and cell phones are a plenty. There is even an elementary school on one of the islands, as well as a community radio station. Have you been to Lago Titicaca, or would you like to? βœˆοΈπŸ›ΆπŸšž ID: Photo of an Uros tribe member standing on a floating island.
