Food: after a short hiatus……

After that dinner I didn’t cook for four days! I’d eat out or I’d spend <5 min to prepare a meal. Like this one:

frozen spinach, tofu, brown rice pasta and parmesan all mixed and bake for 15 min

It was simple but quite tasty

As the weather gets warmer, I crave salad. The other day I had lunch with a friend at Mai Thai and she recommended me to have the avocado salad. Oh… my goodness! How did I forgot avocado? I like it soooo much!!! So the next day I got a salad at Sweet and Green with double avocado as topping. It made everything soooo delicious!!!

I really liked the cannelloni that I prepared that night so I made some more for myself. I used almost the exact recipe, except that I used WW flour for the pancakes, and I added tofu in the filling.

Recipe to success & juicing talk

Today I want to share something very beautiful that I learned from my last yoga retreat. One of the woman called Tami, who is a Yoga-Wear Entrepreneu, told us about her story which you can read from her website. The key words that keep bouncing in my head: if you want to success (not only make money but to truly enjoy what you do in life) you find something that you’re passion about and something that you’re good at, combine them somehow and you have a almost guaranteed successful career. So simple, right? In her case, she has been working in clothing industry and marketing for years, and she has passion about yoga, spiritual path and fitness. So, she quit her job and launched her own company.

Is it interesting? Have you thought about it? You might and I might, but never really think that it can work, right?

Question: What’s your recipe for success?

Okay. Another talk. I’ve been reading a lot about juicing. And I must confess I was so wrong about this topic. I’ve already thought that juicing isn’t necessary or good for you because you throw away a lot of nutrients and fibers that are good for you. But apparently,  that’s precisely the whole point. By removing pulps (fibers) you keep only nutrients that will go to your blood right away. If you keep fibers, then you need to first digest them by removing fibers in order to absorb the nutrients. As the live enzymes will be killed in the digestion process, not all of it, but a good part, you won’t benefit 100% by eating the veggie/fruit. This totally makes sense to me, therefore I’m considering to buy a juicer soon.

Question: What’s your thoughts about juicing?

Enough talk, now random eats that I’ve been munching! All YUMMIES!
