Hi. My name is Sabina.
Let me briefly introduce myself. I come from Slovenia, Europe. I hold a Master’s degree in Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology. I recently started to work as a researcher in a company operating in the field of marketing consulting. Besides cooking, I like taking long walks with my adopted furry friend Mimi:
I enjoy afternoon coffees with my friends, punk gigs, travelling and spending time in the nature. I am an ethical vegan for more than seven years now, yet my eating habits changed quite a lot through these years. At the beginning I would pretty much eat anything, as long a it’s vegan. Through years I gained more knowledge about nutrition and started to pay more attention to what I eat and which food makes me feel good.
About three years ago I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and PCOS, which brought me various symptoms, such as weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, mood swings etc. A Thyroid doctor prescribed me T3 Thyroid Replacement Hormones, which I was taking for a year, but my medical condition didn’t get any better. I still had no energy and was feeling pretty bad. So I decided to try some Complementary health approaches and Alternative medicine. I went to see a great Hormone specialist, who prescribed me T4 Hormones, to take along with T3 Hormones that I was already taking, and I also visited Bioresonance Therapy. When I finally got the right medications, I also started taking some natural supplements (Vitamin B12, Omega-3 with DHA and EPA, Vitamin D3 and Probiotics) and paying more attention to what I eat. I replaced simple carbohydrates with the complex one and high glycemic foods with the low glycemic ones and started eating mostly whole foods. I was immediately starting to feel better, lost some weight, reduced anxiety and mood swings and gained more energy. It’s an everyday struggle, yet my food choices make this struggle easier. I mostly eat a lot of different vegetables, fruit, legumes (such as beans, lentils and chickpeas), whole grains (such as brown rice, quinoa, barley, spelt and oats), nuts and seeds.
I started this blog to share my recipes with you, to possibly inspire you and hear your comments and thoughts, which are more than welcome. I hope you will enjoy my recipes and stick around.
