Morning spring detox smootie


I am fully back in the game, guys.
The truth is, I was working on my first e-book. I wanted to write about all I learned while reading, testing and trying different approaches to food. You’ll hear all about when to eat, what to eat and how to eat. I know it’s funny. As if you don’t know how to eat right? Well, you’ll be surprised at how much better you will feel after this and how much more energy you’ll have when eating differently.
My research is showing that even small changes in eating habits, such as which hours and what you eat at certain hours make huge changes to our metabolic system. The way we eat also affects our hormone system, as you’ll see in my book. Our digestion and metabolic system depends on hormones – insulin, leptin, thyroid hormones…
Food has a huge impact on those hormones, telling our bodies how to use food. Either we store fat or use it. Well, I am not a doctor and I don’t have any intention to heal people, but I do want to show you how important it is to eat whole foods and to eat them in certain ways… More about this in the book I mentioned.
Lately I have been trying to detox my body. I was especially keen on coffee. I don’t even remember the last time my day didn’t start with coffee. I didn’t just stop. My way was more relaxed and slow… You’ll hear all about this topic in one of my next blogs.
Last week was all about soups – bone broth, pumpkin, vegetable… all kinds of soups. I love how they warm up the body and heart. Especially if you use certain spices,which also work well with our hormones. I am crazy about pumpkin soup. I could eat it over and over again, every day, for the rest of my life. Not joking… It has everything you need – veggies, spices… I have a special way of making the soup that gives it that decadent flavour. It’s a must try!
But my day lately starts with a smoothie (when on detox) and I’ll give you one of my most favourite recipes.

Traveling “paleo” way


Hello, after a long time. I need to say I didn’t plan to be gone. It kind of happened. Well, as you might know, blogging is my hobby as I am a full-time designer. I did cook and bake, trust me. :) Of course I have to eat. But it’s so many steps before posts are ready to be posted… I love making my own photos and I am very eager to have beautiful photos calling, “Eat me! Eat me!” :)

Today I want to speak about traveling and eating paleo food. I was in Canada and the US recently and tried to eat “clean”. It was actually easy. I basically ate all the right foods and didn’t have any problems at all. I was running in the morning and I was feeling pretty much as I do at home. It is much easier to order paleo food there than in Europe. Service there is different. Waiters want to make you happy, since they have to earn tips. You can make any adjustments you want with every meal. Of course I didn’t go to fast food restaurant; but family friendly restaurants had plenty of options for good meals. I was also very surprised at how many organic restaurants there are in Canada. You can order antibiotic-free and organic meat on every corner. No gravies and no added sugar is always an option, so I felt great. I even found the perfect paleo cocktail, called Caesar. It contains all the healthy vegetables and vodka. Well, I will definitely make it at home also.

So bottom line – if you want to live a healthy, paleo life, you can do that anywhere in the world. Even when traveling. Stay focused and learn all about the ingredients. Learn how to read and to ask what certain meals contain. It’s easy once you learn and get used to. There is no next time when we are talking about our health – lives. It’s always a priority. You can see some choices I made while cruising around the city of Toronto (even street food). :)
