Why juicing is a good habit in my opinion?

I got inspired to write this blog post because there is a lot of misconception around this subject and I feel like expressing myself in regards to juicing, as a habit. I know that juicing seems a pretty new thing, like a fashion trend, but let me tell you that this is simply not true. For example in 1920 Max Gerson was using raw fresh squeezed juices combined with a vegetarian diet to heal different disease. Max Gerson was a german scientist and let me tell you that he did a pretty nice job in healing his patients from different chronic diseases.  In 1936 another great man, Dr. Norman Walker invented the Norwalk juicer and he made juicing a practice

A letter to all vegans, vegetarians, raw-vegans…or whatever you want to call yourself

“I have wanted to write this letter since forever. First, I wanted to say that this is not a manifest of hate and it doesn’t have the intention to offend anybody and I am sure that a lot of people will agree with me, at least at some point. I grew up as a normal kid, in a normal family who taught me what is good and what is wrong, based on their life experience. I was never rich nor was I poor. I had a lovely childhood and a lot of friends. I was a happy child with a lot of energy who never actually dreamed about a super fancy future; except for the fact that I had in

Pineapple… my friend with the weird haircut :D

Pineapple… my friend with the weird haircut  :D

We weren’t always friends… in fact, I hated pineapple all my childhood and it was very hard for me to accept it in my house, in my kitchen and then, on my plate… disgusting. Let me tell you a little story, just for fun, about a little girl and about a fruit with weird haircut. When I was about 6, 7 years old I was (of course) in love with Santa Claus and especially with the gifts that he always brought to me on Christmas day.  I was waiting for Santa each year with hope, joy and curiosity, like every other child. He never disappointed me and he came each year with all sorts of gifts for me… breadsticks were

TOP reasons for why 9 to 5 jobs SUCK …big time

When I was a little girl I didn’t thought to much about what I wanted to be, or to do when I would finally grow up, at least I don’t remember this urge of finding out what type of job would suit me best. To be honest, I never thought about working in a particular job, although I thought it would be nice to have some money to buy some extra bubble-gum and to buy food for the dogs in the park 😀 …and that’s about it. I didn’t pay any attention to my parent’s jobs and I never imagined that I will do the same as I grow up and “live the nest”. Anyways…they didn’t seem to handle their

Pomegranate juice is a miracle for health

Pomegranate juice is a miracle for health

How beautiful is the pomegranate fruit, right? 😀 Pomegranates are very special fruits, as you can imagine and they were even mentioned in the Bible a few times, in the Quran as being the fruits that will be present in the gardens of paradise and in Hinduism this fruit is a symbol of fertility and prosperity. It has some magic in it, isn’t it? I just love pomegranates. I love the sweet-sour taste of them, the colour of the fruit and I love the cleverness with which they were created in the first place… God must have had an exceptionally good and inspired day when He created this fruit, really! 😀 I have only a problem with it, because well,

BROCCOLI is being investigated for its green colour

Like every child born and raised in this century, I have always looked suspicious to the plate that sat in front of me at mealtimes. I cannot say I was too finicky, because I loved food so much (still do), but I wouldn’t accept weird, green stuff on my plate, especially when was hidden, on purpose, under my French fries. What?! I have bubble-gum in my hair or something like that? I am not stupid and you cannot fool me into eating your weird green things. I will show you how pissed off I am…and then the plate was flying in the air like a tennis ball. 😀 … I know, I was a tough kid! 😀 Leaving aside the

5 reasons for which AUTUMN is an awesome season for vegetarians

5 reasons for which AUTUMN is an awesome season for vegetarians

I know a lot of people that just hate autumn. They don’t like it less than summer, or less than spring, they actually hate it…and they are pretty serious about it. 😀 I might get in trouble for even suggesting that there could be another side of the coin. 😀 Autumn announces the entering of the cold weather and the end of sunny and bright days… and if you look it that way, it’s indeed depressing. But wait just a second before judging it. Let’s watch it from another perspective. What if I told you that autumn can be (and it is) an awesome season? And no, I am not crazy, and yes, I do love summer, I actually love

GRAPE JUICE… a miracle for health

GRAPE JUICE… a miracle for health

…and this is not just another lie! 😀 I never liked grapes enough to actually eat them regularly, not even seasonally. Why? I really don’t know…actually to be honest I love the taste of grapes but I hate the seeds and the skin that covers each bean of grape, mostly the seeds. I do like raisins instead, I love raisins actually. Maybe I’m spoiled or my brain is damaged in a way that it doesn’t accept grape seeds! 😀 Of course… whole foods are always the best option for our body, but still, how to enjoy the fresh flavour of grapes in autumn, when you don’t like their seeds? For me this was a though one. Somehow I figure it

Why I love PARSLEY ?

Why I love PARSLEY ?

We’ve been really good friends since I was a little child, but now we are really inseparable. It wasn’t really hard for me to bond with my dear parsley… actually most of the times; it was present in my food. In my household parsley was very often used, as you can imagine. Now I realise the fact that not only I was in love with parsley, but I guess parsley was in love with me also, otherwise I could not explain why parsley would wave to me from the farmers market, every time I went there with my dad. 😀 How can you not love it? It is green, cheerful and tasty… really tasty; on top of all these qualities,

SESAME SEEDS equals PACKED CALCIUM

SESAME SEEDS equals PACKED CALCIUM

I will never forget those days when I used to see sesame bars, for sale, at the farmers market, when I went to the mountains with my grandparents. What a feeling! Beautiful times, beautiful years, true joy! Those bars were incredible tasty and I felt like I was in Wonderland… just like Alice. 😀 I was jumping all around because I was very happy that I could find and eat sesame bars in my vacation at the mountains. I didn’t had any clue, that those same sesame seeds , that I used to love as a child, would become, after years and years, a topic of study for me. 😀 Well this is life…unpredictable. Because I love sesame seeds so
