MY NAME IS EMMA-LISA, a food junkie trying to find my way in the health food jungle.
A few years ago I had just completed a Yoga Teacher Training program, and moved from Stockholm to Amsterdam with the plan of becoming a yoga instructor. There was just one problem - I was confused, scared, and began to hate yoga! So, I did what any traumatized yogi would do, bought a high-speed blender, and voila! Overnight, Oh My Raw Balls was born. My refrigerator soon became filled to capacity with balls of in all sorts of colors and flavors. I started to see a drastic improvement in my physical and mental health which was no doublt linked to the foods I was making and eating, so I began studying how the foods we eat affect our digestive system, brain, hormones and infammation, Basically, I began practicing "yoga" thru cooking my body and mind have undergone healthy transformations. I'm a firm believer that you can improve everything in life simply by choosing a healthy diet, and feel the need to share my passion with others.
Frequently asked questions that I love to aswer:
What is healthy food?
I would say that healthy food is unrefined, plant based whole foods which give you energy and boost your immune system and brain. But what is healthy for me might not be healthy for everyone. Choosing a healthy diet and lifestyle require putting effort into discovering and becoming aware of your own individual needs, and realizing how the food you eat affects you both positively and negatively.
Why do you choose vegan & raw foods?
Because they make me feel good! Eating mainly vegan & raw foods has given me energy and a vibrant, possitive attitude. Their anti-anflammatory properties have helped me recover from several long-lasting health issues such as excema, pain and depression. Clean, anti-inflammatory, raw, vegan, health, call it whatever you want! I'm learning how to balance my diet and lifestyle so that I can optimize my health and enjoy life more today and in the future.
Why clean food?
Processed and refined foods don't support your body and mind in the same way that clean, unrefined foods can. It's a simple choice! And it doesn't mean you have to say no to your favourite foods - just make sure you always add more of the healthy stuff to every meal!
