This is a long over-due post, but thank you to Foodradical for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Foodradical’s blog is a feast for the eyes, and a ceaseless inspiration for healthy recipes and mindful eats. The Liebster Award award is nominated for up and coming blogs with fewer than 500 followers. Its aim is to enable new blogs to have greater visibility and to foster greater connection. As a nominee I have been asked to answer a few questions, and nominate two blogs I find inspiring and engaging for the Liebster Award.
Here’s the Award Rules:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions you were given.
3. Nominate other blogs with less than 500 followers.
4. Post questions for your selected nominees to answer.
5. Tag and link the nominees and post a comment to let them know you have nominated them and appreciate their hard work.
The questions asked of me:
What do you hope to achieve through blogging? I hope to communicate my journey and perhaps inspire others towards a more mindful way of living– nourishing body, mind and soul.
If you work outside the house, do you pack your own lunch? Usually I take my own lunch into work, taking a variety of raw vegetables, and fruit to meet my ‘five a day’.
Who was your childhood celebrity crush? Well- I don’t remember! Perhaps Louis Theroux?
What inspires you to continuing blogging? I think I am inspired to continue blogging, knowing that there are others out there that get pleasure from reading my posts.
What is your favorite color? It’s changes, but at the moment- turquoise.
Do you shop at your local farmers market? I’ve recently moved area, but when I lived in the city, I frequently shopped at my local farmer’s market, getting as much as I could- from fish, to goats cheese, vegetables and grains. I loved the atmosphere, and getting to know the people who produced the food I’ll be eating.
What is your favorite “out to eat” place and why? I don’t have a particular favourite place to eat out, but I do love Italian and French food!
I am nominating…
A Yogi in Training: Yogi in Training is an excellent resource for guidance through the theory of yoga- great for anyone interested in yoga, and wanting to go a little deeper.
Move. Eat. Live: A wonderful blog with healthy recipes, mindfulness, and meaningful personal memoirs on the fight against perfectionism in the pursuit of self-acceptance.
And here are your questions:
Why inspired you to start blogging?
What practices do you find useful for fostering mindfulness in each day?
What do you do to move your body?
What gives you joy?
Favourite healthy comfort food?
What are you feeling in this present moment?
