Eating real food everyday and leaving the junk and processed food for family day out .


What is the real food ?


Real food is food in its most natural state. Real food to me are whole foods of nature than a product made in the industry or food factory. Raw food that you cook yourself from scratch.


Examples are 100% whole-grains rice , whole grain , spaghetti ,whole grain pasta , quinoa ,Bulgur wheat, Barley ,Millet , spelt , whole rye , chia seeds, flax seeds ,Sorghum ,whole-wheat bread, yam, potatoes, sweet potatoes beans , chickpeas and other legumes.






Lots of  fruits and vegetables preferably organic as they are few cents more  expensive than the regular ones. Be encourage to shop for these at your local farmers market to reduce intakes of pesticides and other preservatives. Know your local farmer if possible.






Drinking plant based milk in cereal and tea is a better option as they are made from planets with no added  animal hormones.



Eating more of free range chicken , turkey and fish would be a better option to red meats like beef and pork. Buy from your local butcher and don't forget to ask question about where the meats are from. 


Snack on raw nuts, dried fruits ,seeds and homemade popped popcorn more healthier.









Drink water, natural home made juice and milk.  Don't buy frizzy drinks. Drink 2 litres of water daily great for the skin, bowel movement etc .


Please start by making 

  • chips from potatoes
  • Chicken bites from mince chicken fillet ask your butcher to mince it ,so forget nuggets they are processed food.

  • Eat pounded yam from yam once a week in moderation  2 ice cream scooper is your right portion size. please forget poundo yam they are processed.
  • Get local honey , 100% maple syrup instead  from the local health shop.
  •  Soup with fresh tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil etc. 

Thanks everyone for reading I hope it helps .

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.







The benefits of physical activities God's way.

Healthy eating and exercise according to the bible as planned by God.1corinthians 3vs 16-17Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwells in you ? If any man defile the temple of God, him God will destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple are you? Quote KJV.
We use this bible verse a lots as a guideline from God the father to live a holy lifestyle without intoxicating our bodies as believers of Jesus. The lord opened the eyes of my heart recently and revealed somethings to me that really made me think about the way I was taking care of my body with my daily intakes ( The food that I eat). I never knew that eating the wrong food is also counted as defiling my body. 
If we purchase sometime new and we did not know how to care and preserve it, no matter how expensive that item was it will eventually becomes weaker or outdated for a good use. God created us (like a vessel). In our lives we all go through hard times and it tends to have a huge effect …

Water and weight management.
Water intake is very essential for our overall health and wellness. Water helps maintain the balance of our body fluids. Our body is composed of about 60% water.
