Hi, I'm Toyin.

Hi, I'm Toyin Oyebade Ayodeji. A health and social care practitioner, but I recently found a new passion for a healthier living. This space is created to encourage a healthy lifestyle using healthy food as our medicine daily and incorporating exercise to stay healthy for our overall health and wellness. Working towards a more holistic approach in caring for our body as the temple of God.

I am a child of God the father, the son and the Holy Spirit. Who found a new way of living healthy through the help of the almighty God .I am also learning how to use the good things that God has given us for our health and wellbeing in a more positive way to his glory. I am someone who likes to share my experiences with others. I am passionate about people living a healthy lifestyle.

I am not a dietitian or nutritionist . My background is in health and social care, however I believe my food is my medicine and my body is the temple of God. Let's do this together everyone.







I eat my carbohydrate in the afternoon during the weekend or at lunch break in small portion size.

Eating more of what the earth produce is the best healthiest options ever. When you do, You have to know your portion because small is plenty. Below is 3 scoops of pounded yam cos weekend afternoons are for African superfood followed by a five kilometres run to utilised the calories.  If you love pounded yam or any swallow every now and again you have to move your body, that is the sacrifice. You can not do it without exercise.






























This lunch below is small but mighty.
















My breakfast , Raw nutrient ,raw benefits.I love raw food for breakfast during the weekdays due to busy schedule.

I found that drinking raw breakfast full of healthy fruit and vegetables gives your digestive system a break and to have a rest. Let your blender do the breaking down of your food and take the burden of your digestive system. This will improve your digestion which in turn make constipation and indigestion a thing of the past. As we all know consuming the daily recommendations of fruit and vegetable can be a challenge . Blending some fruit and vegetables on a daily basis into a smoothies helps ensure your body is getting it's daily nutritional needs. It also provides your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs, cut out weight gaining food from your diet, you will see the pound melting away. Lose weight the healthy way with a good diet.
