NASTY DAY & TUNA PASTA

What a day... A nasty day, I will tell you more tomorrow, but right now all we need is peace, good food and red wine. I'm not suppose to drink any wine this week as I'm going for a detox holiday next week in Spain but I texted my partner and said " - screw the detox, tonight we are dining with tuna pasta , red wine and candles" and he texted back a big YES. This is one of our favourite dishes. Have a lovely evening and speak tomorrow!

SLOW JUICE

I love to start my day’s with fresh pressed juice! Especially as I’m not a “breakfast person”, but need something energising to get me going. I use a slow juicer from Hurom that I’ve bought last year. When I looked for a juicer I firstly wanted a juicer making cold-pressed juice (meaning the machine presses the vegetables slowly without destroying all the enzymes), secondly a juicer that somehow looked good in order to keep it in the kitchen to all times. I found it. So, last year I started to make endless of juice, each morning for me and my partner.

But aj aj aj…. After approximately six months I started to feel some strange pain in my teeth and from time to time feeling dizzy. I surely didn't connect the juice to my health as I was convinces juice only made positive impact. I was wrong. Fruit juice damages the emalj on your teeth as well as breaking down important layers in your stomach from ist sourness. But these are things that no juice company would ever highlight. My dentist convinced me to only drink juice once a week, and after having listened to the podcast with Sebastian Siemiatkowski ; the founder of Klarna who mentioned he’s got gastric ulcer (magsår) from drinking too much juice, I got completely convinced that too many liters of juice can be dangerous. So even if juice is delicious, be careful with it.

TEA FOR TWO
Hi and good morning! This week is a tea week; yup, I have some strange stomach problems since a really long time and I have tried everything in my power to figure out what it can be (gluten, milk, different typs of fats…etc) but nothing seems to be the right diagnose. This week I’ll try to avoid coffee in the morning and switch it to green tea to see if that helps. I have a slight feeling it’s a combination of a little bit of everything; especially when overdoing something like too much stress, too much pasta, too much coffee. I guess it’s something I need to live with and just try to be balanced, which is hard.

To make my tea experience a bit more fun I invested in a tea box last weekend. We passed by our local second hand store, a dreamy place filled to the top with old furniture and deco. I was actually looking for a vase when I found this old box for tea, perfect to sort my teabags in a nice way, and when inviting guests instead of offering the boring paperbox that the tea comes in.

How do you store your tea? Hugs.

PINEAPPLE JUICE

Good Monday morning! I’m making a pineapple juice for breakfast today as I feel bloated after the weekend’s party. In the flight yesterday my fingers were so swollen I could hardly move my rings; a sign of too little sleep and too much unhealthy drinks. So time to clean up the body and start on the right track on the first day of this week!

Pineapple is a fantastic fruit, and at least in Switzerland always available (I think it was sometimes hard to buy in Sweden, at least we never really ate it at home). Pineapple is stuffed with healthy vitamins and low in calories. The three best best benefits of Pineapple must be firstly, Its ability to reduce the inflammation of joints and muscles,. Pineapples contain a relatively rare proteolytic enzyme called bromelain which has anti-inflammatory effects. Secondly, Pineapples are a rich source of fiber, but they are special in that they contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. This means that eating a healthy amount of pineapples can protect you from bloating, and diarrhea as well as blood pressure. Thirdly, of course for skin, hair and all the beauty due to its richness in vitamin C.

The plans for the week? Finally, a calm week ahead with no travels and no late night plans, only lots of fun work (I am dying to tell you something but I need to wait a couple of more weeks...) And the best part is the weather! The weather app says right now +21 degrees from today until Friday, the start of a warm spring, so I believe we will spend some time on our terrace and have some friends over for sunset drinks. Many hugs and have a fantastic start of your week!

JUICY START
vitamin juice

Good morning Monday! I usually make juice on Sundays in order to be prepared for the week. Normally a juice can stay in the fridge for at least three days, and orange juice even longer. Funny enough I read an article about orange juice, that back in 1920’s people used to boil the orange juice and keep in bottles for weeks, like canned juice. One can of course do that, but you would loose around 20% of the vitamins and apparently the taste is a bit funny. I also learned that the boiling point of juice is 160 degrees.

So how was my morning? Oh yes thank you, it was great, mostly due to the fact that it’s my best friend's birthday and it is Monday which is my favourite day of the week! What did I eat for breakfast? I had two bananas, juice and right now drinking a mint green tea in front of my laptop. What plans do you have for this week? It will be an interesting week with a phone meeting with United Influencers tomorrow, which is one of the biggest influencer marketing agencies in Scandinavia (wiihoo….!), a fun blog-lunch with Andrea Monica Hug running Chic in Zurich on Wednesday and trip to Oslo over the weekend to celebrate my best friend’s birthday. Have a fantastic start of your week, and remember to dream, envision and do. That’s when the dreams turns to reality.
