Black & White Compagnie de Provence Soap

One great brand dedicated to well-being I came across in the last 2 years, is the amazing Compagnie de Provence, originated in Marseille, now a brand distributed in approximately 40 countries.

Creamy Avocado Pesto

BBCru9xJfXJ

I LOVELOVELOVE avocados! And since I’ve changed my diet I’ve been keen on experimenting even more with avocados for savoury as well as for sweet dishes. I’ve never thought of avocados to be such an amazing ingredient for sweet dishes as well. But out there on Instagram, there’s endless inspiration to find on what to cook and how to use avocados in ways I would have never imagined.

But let’s stick to a savoury way of using them for now – as a heavenly creamy, fresh and so quick to make pesto. My version with sweetpotato spaghetti is a gluten free one, but it tastes equally amazing with any type of pasta or e.g. mixed with a risotto and some stir-fried mushrooms – yumm!

A Green Smoothie Made My Day

A green smoothie made my day

I finally managed to walk around quite a bit at home this morning. After suffering from major back pain for the last couple of days, I was so thankful I started to feel much better when I woke up today. And although it might sound like no big thing, being able to blend this green smoothie on my own and without feeling significant pain, meant a lot to me and made me feel myself again.

I should definitively do all this blending-of-goodness-together-thing more often as soon as I’m fully recovered, cause it was delicious, satisfying and very energizing in many ways!

This is exactly where I saw this classic Freestyle Hi Spirit model from Reebok the last time! It’s more than 25 years ago, but I could never forget El Show The Yuly, where the pretty southamerican TV presenter Yuly was jumping, singing and running around in her show, wearing those classics – another colour every show! My sisters and me were so in love with her (our wanna-be-when-I-grow-up-icon), and not to mention her rainbow coloured palette of Rebook classics – we were crazyyy about them (ahhh, I love the 80s).

The need for inspiration and ongoing change

If you want or need to start something new which seems to be very difficult in the first place – in my case having to change my diet due to health problems and therefore cut out gluten and refined sugar as well as having dairy products only now and then – I think it’s crucial to find something that inspires and motivates you to keep you on track. I didn’t wanted to feel kind of punished or condemned to this diet changes I had to make. I wanted it to be thoroughly positive, because the conclusion to all of this should be to actually make me feel better within my skin and help my immune system to perform as well as possible again and as it’s supposed to.

So where to get some inspiration from, to conquer this new lifestyle I needed to face and ideally turn into an effortless, joyful and lifelong way of nourishing myself?
