In the midst of everything that’s happening in our country due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it’s hard to know the best ways to behave and take care of ourselves. Here’s one thing we know for sure: We absolutely must focus on nourishment right now.
But don’t forget that nourishment extends far beyond just the foods we choose to eat! We can also nourish ourselves with the media we choose to consume, the ways we choose to practice movement, the hobbies we choose to fill our spare time, and even the people we choose to interact with.
For many, this period of isolation may feel long and lonely, but how we decide to spend our time has the power to completely shape our experience in the coming weeks.
If you’re searching for ways to thrive in the midst of this present challenge, we encourage you to ask yourselves the following questions on a regular basis…
In what ways can I honor myself in this moment?
At OWL Venice, we believe that to heal the world you must first heal yourself. We produce nutrient-dense foods that improve digestion because we believe that gut health affects much more than our physical beings! (Read more about who we are HERE.)
In the coming days, we invite you to reflect on what personal healing means to you and add practices into your daily routine that support your personal vision.
As for us, we find healing in cooking. Not only because healthy foods nourish our bodies, but because we intentionally pour love into every meal we prepare, which nourishes our spirits.
This is why we feel inspired today to share a new ramen recipe OWL’s owner, Lindsey, whipped up recently.
Should you choose to make this at home, we encourage you to make this recipe your own! Use what veggies you have available. Add proteins like fish, egg, chicken, or tofu if you’d like. We know securing specific ingredients can be a bit tricky at the moment, so don’t be afraid to put on your chef hat and customize as needed.
