Juice up your life

30 Mar

Ta Da…! Finally I bought my first juice extractor. I saved money in the past months and at the same time I was looking for a special offers…day by day and in the end I found a special type convenient for me!

 Today I tried to made my first fresh  juice. I was a little bit anxious but in this week I read a lot about juice, to make perfect juice, what type was right for me, what ingredients ect. I read three ebook in my kindle:

1)Juice recipes to prevent & fight Cancer by mick hann

2)12 Healthy Juice Recipes

3)Juice fasting

and today I bought on Amazon (big deal only $3.47) ‘The Definitive Guide to Juicing’ by Eric Tompkins

And this is my first fresh (simple) juice with 1 orange, 1 grapefruit, 1 carrot, 1 tbs of ginger

 Looking good eh?! Yes!! Was fresh, delicious, easy and healthy! I’m very happy!!! I discovered it’s possible to re-use the pulp! yes it’s simple: dried on our oven at 200 ° for a 20 minutes. Or use the pulp to made veggieloaf or veg”meat”ball, or sweetie dessert with coconut…Surfing the web it’s possible to find alternative use for the pulp!!!Personally I dried the pulp with pink salt and I made a salty snack before to go at the class’s pilates! Amazong way to be strong and energetic!

dried pulp I’m sure I starting the week end in a good way….!!!

see u soon!!!

Another goal: change my daily routine!

24 Mar

Yessss….!  I finally rescheduled my day with just simple tricks 😉 it’s easy to change few things day by day!

I’m getting out of bed earlier not only in the week also in my days-off . Actually I’m getting up at 06 am and I have time to read news , to have a relaxing shower and go out without rush! It’s very useful  to plan your day the night before: your mind it’s free to make a good  sleep!

I’m using my commuting time in a productively way than the past: I’m reading a lot when I take the bus or I’m listening   language courses or if I’m very tired it’s useful for me to listen mantras!

At work I’m trying to stay focused without procrastination or interruptions, and I’m trying to take the important things like a first action when I arrived at the office. It I need to take a break I go on the first floor ( actually I moved at the third floor in a big and bright office!) and get a glass of water and I use to go up the stairs…few minutes and I refresh my self….!

I’m going home on time: I’m join in a pilates class and yoga class in a different day in the week . To have appointment out of the office give you a chance to finish your work in time and enjoy the rest of the day… It’s no necessary to join a gym class ( but in my opinion it’s a good habit have exercise three time a week), follow your passion, give a big huge to yourself!

I’m preparing at home my lunch and carry on at office: it’s healthy, cheap and easy…!and I don’t have much time to cook during the week I’ll try to making extra portions at the week end and to buy a lot of fruits and vegetables.

You see? few thing but…Now I’m very proud of me…and I don’t now why but my life seems to simple than in the past!

ahhhh today I prepared a very yummy raw dessert

1 banana frozen

1 cup of fresh strawberries

1 tbs of coconut powder

Delicious!

My first goal for the 2012

16 Mar

Yes!Finally this month I archived my first year’s goal: re-starting yoga and pilates’s class….!

I’m very happy and I rediscover the healthy pleasure that gave me yoga and meditation with other people in the past. Actually I’m in a class with only woman and they are very supportive, with a special positive energy and the teacher Valeria is very kind and gentle person with a big smile …very Yogi person…

In the past months I recharged my self and now I’m feeling energetic and positive about all side of my life… I’m working well, I’m eating healthy, I’m running 2/3 times a week, I’m listening all type of music, I’m reading a lot, I’m improving everyday my english, I’m writing about vegan lifestyle in a  vegan website , I’m curious and I’m trying to appreciate all aspect of my life negative and positive…! I like to share everything with other people around me, without judgment or prejudices…

it’s absolutely true if you want to see the right light for your life, it’s necessary to walk in the dark way’s pain… now I’m free to decide, to make mistake and to do things very well… because I’m I…. two special words…very magic spell…

Namaste at all…
