Hello! My name is Coumba (pronounced KUMBA) and I’m 28 years old. I’m passionate about holistic wellness and Nature. I started this blog to share what and how I nourish my body, mind and soul in order to live my life to the fullest. I invite you to do the same as you only deserve the best and should actively thrive to be the best version of yourself and no one else! I enjoy eating and cooking pure natural electrifying (aka alkaline) foods influenced by cuisines around the world and cultures I’ve been exposed to. I was born in Senegal (West Africa), moved to Kenya (East Africa) when I was 10 years old, and then moved again to Canada (North America) when I was 18 years old. I have traveled all over the globe (Ethiopia, Tanzania, Mali, Ivory Coast, France, Italy, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E, U.S.A) and I enjoy discovering different cultures and people.
I strive to live a genuine, conscious, simple life with a deep appreciation for Nature, family, and friends. I try to be mindful of what I ingest mentally and physically, as well as what I tolerate socially and in my environment given it has a significant influence on one. Physically, meaning what I eat, drink, and exercise to fuel my body, mind and spirit. Mentally, meaning what I feed my mind and soul with books, music, videos, and positive social interactions. I became a pescetarian aka pesco-vegetarian by choice 4 years ago after 3 trials and haven’t looked back since. Granted, I have good days and bad days but I understand that every new day is a new chance to start over and be better. The essence of Pure Naturalist is to share my sources of natural positive vibes based on natural food, realistic life philosophies and practices based on principles of mindfulness, nature, life lessons, and personally inspirational content. Please enjoy to the fullest!
