SUPERFOOD: Almonds

large

Nuts, you can see it as a good snack or as candy… you have them in all tastes and sizes. But I personally never liked them, not necessarily the taste but how you chew it. But my colleague told me a while ago that almonds are very good as a afternoon snack and that you can call them superfood. But I didn’t do much with that information because I just didn’t like nuts and there are many superfoods I eat daily. But than I read on the instagram from a girl with amazingly long, big, shiny hair that she eat many almonds for her hair, and that changes things. Superfood + superhair! So I did my research  and run to the ‘nuts store’ to try the almonds.

They taste soooo different than normal nuts! Taste like vanilla or something?! And they are full of vitamins & minerals and good for the heart, brains and your digestion. If you make a routine from a daily handful of almonds (about 24 pieces) it can help to lower your “bad” cholesterol, reduce, the risk of heart disease and diabetes. There are many more reasons why they are healthy for you, but these must be enough to add almonds to your daily routine.

* You can eat them as a afternoon snack like I do, or you can mix them in a smoothie, biscuits or even cupcakes, you can make almond butter or almond milk. There are many things you can make with the delicious almonds. Let’s be creative!

Unexpected holiday

Yes, very unexpected…

dbgdfThe story: Last week my best mate called me that we could go on a snowvacation, for only €10 ! That’s crazy! But I couldn’t go because I had to work that week… So I felt terrible I love the snowvacations and I really needed it this year. So on monday I went to work, with a very disapointed bad mood and I told the story to my boss. And his reaction was: “Wow if you called me you could have go yesterday!” I had my free days left, the work was done so he didn’t saw a problem. I really jumped on the floor I was soooo happy, so I called my friend back and we packed all our stuff so we could leave asap. The only thing we needed to do was, letting the people (were we would stay) know that we were coming that night. And yes, you can guess what happened… We couldn’t go… Something with the fire safety and the appartement boss blabla… But we did understand but it was so sad, we packed everything in 1 hour and took free days at work etc. So we decided to go anyway… Even if we had to sleep in the car for a week hahaha! Well to make the story a bit shorter, a good friend helped us out, we stayed in the best hotel and we still left that Monday!!

It was so much fun, we had a great time there and I can not wait to go back next year. The unexpected things in life are almost always the most valuable memories. I will never forget this week with these mambeaus.

 

-Here you see a part of the most un-embarrassing photodiary from last week;

Summer Vibessss

Voel jij ook al dat de zomer er weer langzaam aankomt en kun je niet wachten tot je weer lekker op een terrasje kunt zitten met je vrienden of lekker een lange dag op het strand rond kunt bazuinen? Nou ikke wel! Ik heb al zeker de zomer in mijn bol. De warme bries door je haren, de warmte van de zon op je huid, zonder dikke jas naar buiten, teen-slippertjes aan, en mijn favoriete voordeel van de zomer is het heerlijke zomerfruit! hmm…

Maar gelukkig liet vandaag het zonnetje zijn gezicht weer zien, ik twijfelde geen moment om naar buiten te gaan. Mijn sportoutfit aan, skates mee en op naar het bos om eens even lekker uit te razen en tegelijk vitamine-D op te doen. Alleen ik vergis me er altijd heel erg in dat ondanks dat het weer er lekker uit ziet, het toch verraderlijk koud kunt zijn. Dus een (bekende) tip voor de Nederlanders onder ons; neem ALTIJD iets extra’s mee, je kunt beter wat kleding uit doen dan te weinig bij je hebben.

——————————————————-

I can not wait until the summer is here… I know that a lot of you who live in Australia, Hawaii, Miami etc. still have summer this moment and goshhh I am so jealous! I post before (few months ago) that I also love the winter, and I still do! Until Christmas and New Year haha! Then it get’s boring, if we have snow it disappear this time of the year and only the grey rainy weather if left. People also getting annoyed and unfriendly because they are stuck inside their houses and haven’t seen “real” sunlight for months. These summer photo’s made me sooo excited for summer! I make myself crazy, I am already searching for nice trips to the sun -> California!

Anyway, to make you also crazy and excited for summer, here are a little pre-summer vibes! X

This is a beautiful post from charcoalalley.com, I could not better express and I had to share it with you guys;
A new year is almost upon us . . . that time when we want to let go of what is no longer working in our lives, and plant the seeds for the positive changes we wish to nurture and encourage.  The first day of 2014 is especially powerful, because it coincides with a Super New Moon (a super moon comes closer to the earth than usual), and new moons, in general, are always a good time to make new plans and set positive intentions.  Know, that we are being supported, in so many ways, to rise to our full potential as the unlimited, loving, spiritual beings that we truly are. 
And remember, the past is the past . . . it has nothing to do with the future, unless we hold on to it.
