Believe it or not, I wasn't always this cute. I used to be an overworked, tired and frequently sick executive who had a terrible relationship with her body, food and self-acceptance.
Over the last 11 years I learned a lot and got myself to be happy, healthy and totally in love with myself. Now it's my turn to pay it forward and in this podcast I will share what I learned so you can be healthier and happier in an eAZier way!

Sustainable Seafood - What to eat now?
Q: Alina, I just watched the Seaspiracy documentary on Netflix and I am really grossed out with the seafood industry. Yet, I still want to eat fish, shrimp and all that yummy stuff. What do I do??
A: I totally get it. It's hard not to be moved by the movie and yet it's also hard to do something. But not to worry! I have a few ideas to share in this podcast and video.
After I recorded I realized I didn't answer what one can do if you choose to continue eating fish. What are the best options? So here are my answers to that:
SKIP: Tuna and Tilapia. Tuna has way too much mercury and tilapia is raised in horrible conditions and full of yucky stuff you don't want to eat.
SWAP: Choose organic farm-raised salmon instead of wild salmon. My current concern is the radiation and pollution in our oceans that are poisoning wild salmon, so I personally eat sustainably-raised organic salmon.
To make sure I get my Omega-3's I eat flax seeds, chia seeds and walnuts. I also take Krill oil once in a while.
CHOOSE: Go for the small fish such as sardines. They are rich in Omega-3's and since they are tiny, they don't have a long life-span so they don't have time to accumulate junk in their tissues. Of course, please choose only from small sustainable fisheries and consume only when needed, not for entertainment.
BEST CHOICE: Plantbased salmon and other vegan options at gtfoitsvegan.com. They have amazing foods like the shrimp and salmon among others.

COMFORT FOODS & HOW TO EAT WHEN YOU ARE STRESSED
Q: What do you eat when you are super stressed? Do you suggest any supplements? What about comfort foods?
A: Such a great question and so timely!
Usually when we are stressed we seek two energies – numbing/heavy feeling or high energy/lightness.
In this video/podcast I show you what I eat/take/do to get both of those energies. Actually I have been under a lot of stress this last week (that's why I didn't post anything then) so this is actually a recap of what I have been doing.
BONUS TIPS (that I didn't talk about in the video)
1. Studies have shown that smelling citrus can help boost your mood and relieve anxiety. So if life gives you lemons - take a deep breath in!
2. Which brings me to another point I didn't mention - deep breathing is super important when dealing with stress. You don't have to do it for a long time, even just a few deep breaths when you feel anxious can help!
Let me know if there are other things you like that help you deal with stress and comfort yourself.
GO LOVE YOURSELF... AND WHERE TO ACTUALLY START!
Q: I know people say you should love yourself, but where do you actually begin? What are the practical steps? What do you actually you DO?
A: What a great question and I think I can help by sharing the two first steps that you can take on the road to self-loverville where you can find you happily ever after!
So where do you begin? This makes me think of the song (Where do I begin) Love Story song... Have you heard it before? If not, I recommend you listen/read them.
They are such awesome lyrics especially when you start singing them to yourself and realize that YOU are the love of your life (without the sad ending)! And if that feels crazy to you and yet you are excited about it, then stick with me here!

Cleansing eAZy - How to Have More Energy During & After
Q: I have seen your amazing results from your juice and water fast and want to know more about it. How can I do a cleanse without feeling tired and or being low on energy as I have to work every day? Where do I begin and what do I do?
A: The best way to look at eating and cleansing is as you look at shopping and cleaning out and organizing your closet. If you shop too much and you don’t have time to either organize the clothes or clean out and donate things you no longer wear.
Same with cleanses – if you eat excess food that your body didn’t have a chance to process and stuffed the extra food energy as fat cells, then a cleanse will give it an opportunity to clean house.
Listen to this podcast to learn how to cleanse your body the eAZy way.
