Julienne and Serrated Stainless Steel Peeler

I love my Julienne and Serrated Stainless Steel Peeler!

They are one of my best friends at the kitchen!

I use them for salad, carpaccio, ceviche and decorating plates.

They cut so thin that is great for salads as carrots, beets or cucumbers can be cut so thin that are easy to eat and you can impregnate different flavors with salad dressings.

Also you can cut carrots and cucumbers in julienne for sushi!

Tips for a healthy lifestyle

healthy-lifestyle-diet-fitness-heart-sign-vector-shape-multiple-icons-depicting-various-sports-vegetables-44829978

A healthy lifestyle it’s not just eating the right things, it’s a bit more complex than that.

A healthy lifestyle it the sum of eating healthy, having positive thoughts, be constantly learning and exercise.

 

Try doing some changes little by little; until those changes become your daily habits and you’ll start functioning on automatic, no need to think twice on doing a sacrifice… at the end you will enjoy every part of it.

 

Eating Healthy

healthy-choices

Add some Green juices to your daily routine, I know you are not having the right amount of greens you need by the end of the day, so the easiest way is just dumping some greens like lettuce, kale and cucumber to the blender, to give some color and flavor add carrots or beets and for a final touch squeeze 1 or 2 lemons to your juice.

Skip refined carbohydrates as they don’t contribute to your health, 0 nutrients, what a waste of time, ughhh, all that chewing for what!? Totally not worth it.

Keep it down with the sugar; the key is everything in balance. When buying products read the label and don’t buy them if they have 10gr or more of refined sugar.

 

Positive Thoughts

positive thoughts

Everything resumes in what is your focus, as they say “where the mind goes, the body will follow” try using your time and energy on positive things, read celeb phrases, smile, or as Julie Andrews sings “I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so baaaad”…

At the end positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health And Improve Work

Constantly Learning

Know-your-brain-500px

“Don’t go through life, grow through life”, never stop learning, every experience, good or bad has a lesson, instead of asking why it happened to me? Ask what can I learn from it?

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious” Albert Einstein.

Every instant you live is an opportunity to learn from someone or something, you’ll see life more fun! Certainly you’ll start your day with another focus, ask questions, be a detective, be observative, be analytical, you’ll learn form things you will never think of.

Did you know that the most successful ideas are inspired by nature? There are great seminars on ted talks on creating innovative technology inspired by nature here

When we think we know it all, our purpose of life is gone, sometimes we need to silence thoughts and let other talk; maybe you can learn from them.

 

Exercise

Don’t be lazy, I know sometimes is difficult to start exercising, but once you start everything is much easier.

If you don’t have time to go to the gym a certain day the best thing is to do 20min of exercise at your home, buy a pair of kettle bells and you are all set to have a radical change on your body, doesn’t matter if its just five minutes at least you are creating the habit of moving your body everyday.

On this link you will find amazing exercises and recipes!

Raw food benefits and Recipe

Raw food benefits and Recipe

 

You can incorporate raw food to your daily diet as an excellent choice for your health. I started to add them five years ago and every time getting more in love with that idea. As is simple, fast and super healthy.

Here are some great benefits:

 

-Fast: When you arrange a breakfast it can be as easy and fast as a smoothie (fruits and vegetable all together), a lunch could be a salad with guacamole or hummus. For dinner you can choose a sushi recipe you´ll see below.

 

 

-Enzymes: Everything cooked at more than 120 degrees destroys all the enzymes… and what are enzymes for?

 

  1. Digestion and absorption
  2. Boost the immune system
  3. Reduce bloating

 

-Vitamins and Minerals: Try to add rainbow colors into your plate; each color brings different vitamins and minerals. Antioxidants (vitamin A, C, E) are essential vitamins as they protect your cells from damaging, preventing any illness. You will nurture yourself and will not have the anxiety to eat at all times.

 

The ideal is to eat more than 50% of your food raw.

You can start with amazing raw plates that will inspire you to make more raw food and off course give more enzymes to your marvelous body.

Eating sprouted food is like eating life

Eating sprouted food can add health and happiness to your life. Sprouts are buds of some foods such as cereals, legumes and seeds that have been activated by an ideal environment (water, heat and oxygen), which will consistently rise into a new plant. Sprouted foods have lots of nutrients including enzymes, chlorophyll, amino-acids, minerals, vitamins and trace-elements alive.

Eating sprouted food is like eating life

 

sprouting

When you start the germination process in different foods you will get some of the advantages of consuming this kind of meals; a lot of compounds and substances which aim to convert into a source of energy and substrates for the growth of the new plant. These components make the food sprouted much more beneficial to the body; some of them are easy digestion, much more nutritionally rich and increased absorption of nutrients. They are ideal foods for people with weak stomachs, as they allow the body to rest and regenerate itself from many processed foods.

 

Other properties are:

 

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Invigorates the nervous system
  • Lowers cholesterol index
  • Promotes detoxification processes
  • Source of antioxidants that fight against free radicals

 

The vitamin and mineral content and bioavailability in the body are increased by 200% and 600%. It is important to consume these raw foods as much as possible in salads, stir-fries or as a final ingredient in other meals. This is because when exposed to high temperatures when cooking they loose a lot of nutrients.

 

Which food can be sprouted?

 

Foods that sprout are generally cereal grains, legumes and seeds, each one with a different time and method. Among seeds to sprout are rice, barley and wheat, and others. Legumes are generally lentils in the first place, followed by chickpeas, alfalfa, soybeans and other types of beans. As for seeds, cashews, sunflower seeds and almonds germinate easily.

 

Besides the above-mentioned properties, sprouts are actually used to prevent diseases and treat them if they have been already detected. The use has become a trend for people with healthy lifestyle and seeking new options for healthy eating.

Alkaline Diet

Alkaline Diet

 

Have you ever felt tired in the afternoon? Have you ever thought why this happens?

This mostly happens because our body is acidic and makes us tired; suffer from headaches, bloating and even increases the proliferation of bacteria.

When we eat alkaline foods we feel light, energetic and clearheaded. It can influence our mood positively.

So balance is the secret. We need a correct balance acidity/alkaline (pH) in our blood, tissue and other fluids.

Blood and tissue pH should be 7.3. Saliva and urine pH should be 6.8 to 7.0. You can get pH strips on Amazon in order to test yourself and analyze if you are too acidic and quickly make some changes to feel spectacular.

The theory says that arthritis and osteoporosis are promoted by acid accumulation in the body. Our body is always looking naturally for balance, so if we give our body too many acidic foods our body will start to pull out minerals from bones and organs to get to the ideal pH balance.

Our purpose should be then to take food consciously, knowing which foods are acidic and which are alkaline, and always consuming more alkaline foods.

Based on the study carried out by Professor Jürgen Vormanne, these are some alkaline and acidic foods:

Most alkaline Foods

  • Spinach
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Kiwi
  • Ruccola

Very Acidic Foods

  • Egg, yolk
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Rabbit
  • Pig
  • Corned beef, canned

As a tip, when you are thinking of eating something acidic for your body, try and eat three times more alkaline foods to balance your body’s pH. Or if you want to be more radical, choose alkaline vs. acidic foods. In other words choose health.
