Today I have for you a very nutritious healthy and delicious recipe for those who love avocados.

The Guacamole  is an avocado-based dip that originated from Mexico. You can also use it as a condiment or salad ingredient.

Here is what you need:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper

Directions: 

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in the cilantro, garlic and cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.

You can serve it with chopped vegetables like celery carrots, cherry tomatoes, but u can use it as a dip for tortilla chips too 🙂

The only vitamins I take

PhotoGrid_1397047738714Hello my dears!
You know I love to eat healthy food, I think it’s the best thing you can do to your body. The best way to get all the nutrients is to eat as natural as possible, without processed foods and chemicals. Sometimes even if we eat all the good things we still need a little boost, and this is the time when vitamins and supplements come in our help. The only vitamins I take are the cod liver oil soft capsules which are a high quality source of Omega 3 and its active fatty acids http://tidd.ly/24fa01a2
Another great supplement is the green tea extract which is a highly effective antioxidant that has been used in Chinese herbal medicine for thousands of years http://tidd.ly/f773429f
And some multivitamin http://tidd.ly/26023e1f for more energy!
These all are from the company Myvitamins.com, check them out they are very effective and high quality products.

Have a beautiful day!

One bad meal won’t make you fat!!

IMAG3301_1_1Hello everyone!

Look at this picture, this was my lunch today! I know, it’s not a healthy meal, and it is not a good example for you to show. BUT, I want to tell you something, nobody is perfect, nobody can eat 100% just healthy and clean food. Our body and mind sometimes need those unhealthy greasy foods, so once in a while it’s not such a bad thing to eat a pizza or pasta or lasagna or a cheesecake or whatever you prefer. You know there is a saying “One bad meal won’t make you fat, just like one good meal won’t make you skinny” and this is so true. Of course if you ask me, I advise you to eat healthy 90% of the times, and indulge in a treat meal 10% of the times. The healthier you want to get, the faster you want results, the stricter you’ll have to be. On the other hand life is short, so you have to enjoy it. If you crave something just go for it, and the next day you will pay more attention on what you are eating! I hear people say all the time, that if they eat an unhealthy meal their diet is “gone” or they feel guilty for it. Don’t be! We are humans, and believe me those 1-2 bad meals won’t “destroy” your diet, you won’t get fat from that and especially don’t feel guilty for it. I really feel good after this huge pizza  🙂

Have a nice day everybody, see you very soon! :*
