Are You Living "Bella Figura?"

Are You Living "Bella Figura?"

I recently read a light-hearted book (thank you, Vera!) that inspires taking risks, slowing down, appreciating fresh food with lots of 'excellent' olive oil, seeing beauty everywhere, and just loving life ... it is a travel story of self-discovery that takes place in Florence, but of course! 

It just made me happy (and an antidote to the heavy issues we all face), want to travel, and to live Bella Figura., a life with beauty and pleasure.

Her Secret Sauce: 5 Ingredients

1. Food you eat should give you pleasure while eating it
(pause for meals, and set a place, even if you are eating alone)

2. Seize any opportunity to get moving 
(take the stairs or dance with abandon)

3. Drink a spoonful of excellent quality extra-virgin olive oil four times a day (!)
(try our new harvest extra virgin olive oils!)

4. Seek out nature
(be it a city park, a tree on your street, or some wild place)

5. Love yourself
The bella figura occupies her space, emotionally and physically, with style and entitlement.

And there are seasonal recipes at the end of each chapter. Since it's artichoke season, here is a sexy little recipe for dinner in bed. Enjoy!
