Some fruit, vegetable, salad and herb varieties I build even to themselves. We have a large roof terrace where it is possible in many, many pots and flower boxes. Good experience I made with arugula, radishes, Zwergnektarinen, currants, watercress, rosemary, lemon thyme and sage. This summer, I want to test my green thumb a little further.;-)
I have never liked cooked but now this attitude has totally changed. It ‘s part of my life, to create delicious healthy meals. Nevertheless, I am and remain a friend of simple recipes that are cooked as soon as possible and also leave to cook again after work. Eben job fit!
I am an absolute fan of Super Foods. Wheatgrass, sprouts, goji berries, pomegranates, lemons, yellow nutsedge or whatever. They all move at some point in my shopping cart or when I order online. Here, I pay particular attention to the origin, because of course many superfoods are not from the region, but travel once around the world.
Also my drinking behavior has changed. Before, I always thought that apple juice is the ne plus ultra. I have never made me aware of how much sugar plugged alone in a glass of it. Today I drink mostly still water and lots of tea. My preference is for green tea, but also herbal teas I like to drink. In addition, a part for me after getting a glass of warm water with half a freshly squeezed lemon to a good start to the day.
The change my diet to a more natural, unprocessed form has paid off. A key success factor for my migraines disappeared is my good nutrition. Since I eat better, I no longer suffer once a month below. Furthermore helped my diet for the most part to my athletic figure. Sure, muscles are built by training, but they are visible only by an accompanying healthy diet (20 % sports, 80% of diet ). Other positive effects of my altered diet: I feel more alert, have more energy, a more beautiful skin and better digestion. Everything you could wish for, right?
Vegetarian / Vegan
I eat mostly vegetarian or even vegan. Since the summer of 2012, I renounce entirely on meat. Fish and eggs I eat from time to time in small quantities. The eggs I get from a work colleague from my own attitude. Furthermore, I am thrilled! Dairy products, I have largely been replaced by vegetable alternatives (soy, nut milk). Only for my beloved cheese unfortunately I have not found a good alternative…. but I mostly eat vegetables, salads, lentils, beans, tofu, fruit, etc.
Oh yes, I love my ” green stuff ” total! Once a day, there must be a great salad. I deal with raw vegetables and fruits but also to my green smoothies or green juices. An absolute energy boost! Also, raw nut milk made from almonds or other nut varieties can be totally easy to prepare themselves. The share of raw food my diet I want to develop something in the future. I just have a feeling that she gets very good to me.
Organic and locally
I buy my food at least in organic quality, if possible, from local producers ( farm shops ). That’s in a small town with lots of land around it – thank God – yet possible. My latest acquisition is a subscription of seasonal vegetables and fruit crate once a week, fresh, free house and with surprise, because you never know which vegetables or fruit in it.;-)
Except its outside, the body has its inside, and this is something that people very often miss to understand or just don’t think about. The question what comes first – the beauty or the health may sound too easy to answer, but let’s see.
Using natural cosmetics would really refresh your skin, it will not only make it look good, but it will also make it feel good. And this is the secret here. The motto of the sports is that you get your body and your spirit strengthened. Such is the goal of the cosmetics as a whole – to fill in every aspect where the natural power of the body fails to take care. Of course the body would fail to take the perfect care for itself, when we live in such dirty cities with air pollution, where we very often go and grab just “something” to eat.
So we need a little help.
Most of the people realize the need of additional care, but also there are so many things out there at the beauty-shops – all those different creams, with different aromas, with different effects, also for the different parts of the body… Don’t panic! Yes, there might be a lot of diversity when we talk about naturals cosmetics. But you really don’t want to end up with a whole bunch of boxes and tubes that you’re not even going to open, because you have 10 other tubes to finish before you start using the 10 new ones.
Yes, you might need some stuff to pimp yourself up, but the good news is that you don’t need everything which is out there in the industry. It is a part of the strategy to make new stuff all the time – to make you feel like you need them, to make you buy them. So, have that in mind when you’re keeping an eye at what’s new.
If you think you really need all that stuff from the TV, you probably must stop watching the commercials. The point is that there are so many kinds of cosmetics that you can get lost. But don’t lose your identity. It is good to have a few things to protect the skin from the sun, from the pollution and the stress. Don’t forget you have your own beauty; you don’t need to mask it. Exactly this is the result of too much stuff – hiding. Most of the cases there’s nothing to hide, there is only to unveil. The point of the natural cosmetics is to “upgrade”, not to replace. There should be a balance when you really think about your own beauty and what you need – it’s just that simple. You need much less than they (in the commercials and the billboards) say you do. Forget about them and get only what you need, when you are trying to respond to your body needs.
So, there is natural beauty in the health, and natural health in the beauty, that just needs a little help from time to time (not all the time!). On the video you will see some tips about it.
Beauty comes from health, so when natural beauty fails, it is because natural health fails (skin problems are a great example for this) and natural cosmetics can help to improve both of them.
