Helloo and Salam!
I hope this finds you all in the best health and all of you are doing well.
This post is a little bit different from the regularly scheduled content of DIY/home decor etc.. It’s about self care. Quoting Jenna Kutcher – self care is MORE than just bath salts! And, as a working mom like many of you, running a household and juggling all the hats, self care is always on the back burner.
I have really struggled with self care these past few months, especially while working on finishing up a full draft of my dissertation and going back forth on edits. In addition to that, I have an upcoming move to the other side of the country soon, and preparing for that has also been a huge stressor. And when I am stressed out, two things happen. I don’t schedule in self care and I don’t eat well. All this to say, I am more likely to get sick when both these things are happening.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know eating well is a huge part of my life. I love to cook (on most days hah!) and I cook for 4 other people so usually I am keeping everyones preferences in mind. In all of this, usually one thing gets lost – FIBRE.
One thing we are horrible at is incorporating fibre into our diets. Since me pregnancy two years ago, I have also struggled with hemorrhoids which can be worsened with a lack of fibre in my diet. And during times of stress, when I have been eating badly and not getting enough fibre… well to spare you the details – its all quite painful.
So recently, I have started incorporating Fiberight by Greeniche into my daily routine. I simple mix in two teaspoons into my morning glass of lemon water and have immediately consumed THIRTY percent of my daily fibre intake. The best part – it has no taste! You can’t even tell its mixed in the water in this photo, but it totally is. All I taste is lemon in my water that I like to add. Unlike traditional south asian “Ispaghol” it doesn’t have a texture and doesn’t become clumpy or gooey as Ispaghol usually can. I just love the ease with which I can improve my diet a little bit, especially as I struggle to improve my eating habits in this busy season of my life. Also it has made a world of difference with the pain I experience caused by my hemorrhoids.
I would love for you to try some Fiberight, made in Canada – it is certified GMO free and halal and can be ordered easily while you chill out on your couch! Use coupon code CANDY10 to get 10% off any product at Greeniche! You can add it to your morning smoothie, oatmeal or just drink it in water like I do!
