YOU are WORK IN PROGRESS…LOADING

This morning we stopped at a gas station to fuel the car; nothing special so far. As I sat in the car, waiting for my colleague to return from the cash register, I couldn’t help myself to observe, just a little bit, all the people that were passing by. This is an interesting practice that I like to explore now and then; it’s very interesting to watch people, to observe all their gestures, to see how they react, to see their body language, to see if they smile or if they are sad, to see that every one of them has their own story, to live and to tell. We are all so different, yet so beautiful, each of us

3 TIPS for buying the perfect avocado

3 TIPS for buying the perfect avocado

Against all opinions it pretty damn easy to buy a perfectly ripe avocado from the supermarket or from the farmers market. This is what I can say now, after at least 20 rotten avocados + 20 unripe ones, bought in my first attempts of introducing avocado in my diet.  😀 … I wasn’t a genius at the beginning. Well since then, things have changed and I became a master in choosing perfect avocados from supermarket. After countless fails, I finally managed to know how I can recognise a perfect avocado. I can even give classes on this subject 😀 !!! I personally love avocado, ripe avocado I should say. It helps me in the kitchen a lot because I can

Let’s talk GLUTEN

Let’s talk GLUTEN

Almost in every food store you enter you find at least 1 product which is labelled as gluten free. This is a trend that I saw since 3-4 years ago. At the beginning I wasn’t familiar at all with the “gluten free” subject, but as time passed by, I educated myself a little bit and most important, I watched myself and I learned from my own experience.   I cannot emphasize enough how important is to learn from your own experience, even though the experience of others might seem legit, we are all different and we perceive things differently. This is the reason for which our own experience with life is the most valuable of all. Don’t get me wrong;

VEGGIE SUSHI ROLLS in 10 STEPS

VEGGIE SUSHI ROLLS in 10 STEPS

Well… I just love sushi and since I don’t live in Japan or anywhere near Asia, my family and friends find it pretty weird. My first bite of sushi was on a work trip in Germany, and boy… I was delighted. This happened many, many years ago…and yes, around that time I didn’t even knew about vegetables to much, so my first sushi contained raw fish, I know… bad girl! But this is the truth. I have never had the chance to taste veggie sushi, until I made my own. 😀 This recipe is pretty simple and it doesn’t take too much of an effort to try it. This dish is low in fat, high in carbs, rich in minerals,

WATER… tap or bottled? (Part I)

WATER… tap or bottled? (Part I)

I know you hear this all the time: “Drink your water!” But why?! Why drinking water is so important? Why all the media is screaming in one voice the message, over and over again, like a CD put on repeat? Well… the media is made of people right? Some of them are extremely well intended and they really want to spread a positive message concerning water consumption, while others are paid for promoting water consumption from a certain company. I am sure you are familiar with the multimillion-dollar water businesses on the entire globe. I must say I am “a little” pissed off when it comes to water market because I really don’t understand why water has to have a

5 IDEAS for a healthy breakfast at work

5 IDEAS for a healthy breakfast at work

I know a lot of people who skip breakfast just because they go to work and they don’t have enough time in the morning to eat something. I used to be one of those people 😀 . I remember I was waking up without any idea of what I would be eating that day and most of the times, I thought: “I am not hungry now…so I won’t waste time to actually find something that I would eat later in the day”. Of course later on, I would be starving and around 2:00 o’clock in the afternoon I would choose something to eat from any store, anything but healthy, day after day, stuffing my face with food…because I was really

The benefits of eating CORN

The benefits of eating CORN

I don’t think there is another food that I love more than corn; I could probably live on boiled corn for the rest of my days, without any kind of issues 😀 . From July until October, corn is my best friend, my favorite non human “thing” and the supreme happiness from my taste’s point of view. I don’t even know how to find the perfect words to express my love for corn, I blush like a teenager girl at her first kiss…in another life I was probably…well…CORN :D; I must have been, otherwise I cannot explain myself why I am so fascinated with this cereal. Because yes, corn is a cereal, and a very special one actually, because it’s

CARBS are your friend

CARBS are your friend

How many times did you hear that somebody is avoiding carbohydrates such as potatoes, rice, pasta, fruit…because CARBS aren’t healthy and they make you gain weight in just one second? I also used to avoid CARBS, actually not really 😀 … I was just trying to… but never succeeded; it was nearly impossible for me to avoid carbohydrates. Is this familiar to you too, right? Here is my answer: You are not broken or weird. It’s normal for our bodies to crave CARBS… because CARBS are our main fuel, or should be our main fuel. This is the food that nature intended for us as a species…we all crave for it, we all find satisfaction when we eat CARBS and

JUST DANCE

JUST DANCE

We need to move our body… period. There is no need for me to try to explain this; we all know it but we just don’t do it. 😀 We live in a society that is telling us to do things all the time, like this: “Eat this and that, find a well paid job, go to the gym, get married, have children, be polite, go to school so you can find a job that makes you sick and crazy and yes, my favorite one, smile all day long… even if you feel like crap… and so on and so forth. Taking this into account it is pretty hard to trust what society says nowadays, but this thing is true,

10 steps to feel comfortable as a vegetarian

10 steps to feel comfortable as a vegetarian

  We all met bullies when it comes to choosing a vegetarian lifestyle and it’s never easy to let them pass unnoticed. When I was in my transitioning period from a standard diet to a vegetarian lifestyle I faced a lot of bad words and even nasty looks, for the simple fact that I didn’t choose to eat meat. People can became really mean when they want to, I am sure that you know it; but I know for a fact that people are not bad just for the sake of being bad, people become defensive and they revolt on things that they don’t understand well enough. At first I wasn’t very delighted to face other’s opinion on my life
