This morning I started my day with a power juice. I had to be at work at 6.30, really early for me. I couldn’t eat yet, but didn’t want to work on an empty stomach.
A power juice from Brandstof! The juices from Brandstof are fresh (they have a 3 day fresh grantee) and made out of veggies. They have all kind of flavours, and they all give your morning a boost. They use ingredients like ginger or vennel, that really boost up your metabolism.
I think it’s never a good idea to skip breakfast completely, but to have a juice instead seems like a good thing to me.
What do you think about a juice to start your day with? Good idea or a no go? Is it to much of an effort, or do you buy it like I did?
Thanks for the reading, and like or comment. I’m happy to be sharing my journey for a better health with you.
Like everyone else I made a resolution this year, to eat more healthy. Did I manage to do that? A bit.
Today this was my breakfast:
And yes, it was as good as it looks. If course I want you all to eat good healthy (vegan) food and that’s why I’ll be posting the recipe.
Did I manage to do that? Yes, a bit.
I also made a vlog about my day, and what I ate. It’s a short video, and all about my food.
-180 gram (soy) yoghurt
– 1 Apple
– 2 tbsp maple syrup
– 2 tbsp chia seed
– 1 kiwi
– a jar
How to make:
Cut your apple into small pieces. But them at the bottom of your jar. Fill your jar up with yoghurt. Then put the maple syrup in, and sprinkle the seeds on. Cut the kiwi and finish it off with the kiwi in top. Enjoy!
Start your day healthy with this breakfast. And you can take it with you, it’s in a jar and easy to bring with you.
Last week I was hungry all day. I snacked on fruit but it wasn’t satisfying me. I wanted something crunchy, something nice. So I made kale chips, for the first time in my life.
It was so easy and so tasty, that I want to give you all the recipe for this amazing snack!
– kale leafs
– paprika powder
– oil (optional, I didn’t use it)
Preheat your oven on 200°. Pick a tray and put some paper on it.
Cut the kale into eat able pieces.
Season them with herbs, you can also use garlic powder or basil.
Put it all in the oven for about 8 minutes, check if they are crispy. Of they aren’t then put them back for 4 more minutes.
It’s ‘s easy and ready under 15 minutes. I love to bring them to the cinema, or serve them when I have friends over. It’s my favourite new snack.
The title may sound weird, but I discovered that it actually isn’t. I’m doing a project for school, it’s a socialisation project. For this project we need to reflect to our childhood and family, in order to understand where we are now.
That all sounds okay, but what does it have to do with the title?!
Well one of the questions was about your gender.
Do you feel comfortable being a boy/girl? Did you ever felt pushed in a certain direction because of your gender?
This made me think. Am I happy with my gender? Do I like being a girl? I never really thought about it. But now I did, and I came to the conclusion that I like who I am. Most of the time I feel pretty confident, and I like the way I look. I like wearing dresses in the summer, having long hair and wearing high heels when I go out for dinner.
But not everyone does. There are a lot of people not feeling good in the body God gave them. The so called transgenders. I always find transgenders very brave, because they don’t accept what the world sees, but become to what they want to see. And that’s what the are now, not what the world wants, but what they want.
There was a Dutch girl in Hollands Next Top Model (HNTM) and she was a transgender. She won. This shows that it doesn’t matter where you came from, all that matters is who you are now. She had a lot of confidence and selflove.
She can be a role model. She shows us that we can always be who we want to be.
And that’s promising and hopefull, for those who are feeling insecure, or those who have trouble with their gender. Society pushed us into pink or blue sides, but we can always make the decision to chose purple.
