Lately people have been asking me where I get all my energy from... and it seems to be the same people that thinks this super food thing is getting way too much focus. They´re telling me they want to enjoy life and everything that's being offered to them, as if its only junk and crap that's really good in life. If being tired and letting themselves go is the only thing that life has to offer, then they are on a weird path in life where perspectives means nothing. I say "hell yeah, take what life has to offer you! That is excactly what I do too, except I just filter whats good or bad for me and my body, and that does NOT mean that I'm not enjoying life, on the contrary, I feel I get the most of it... ;)" Just to choose what you want for yourself and getting some knowledge on how things works, then its more easy to balance it all and actually make those choices.
Filling the fridge for the week
What I want for myself is to have energy to achieve what I want in life, be on top of my game and get a strong and healthy body and mind that works the way I want it too. The only thing that bugs me, is that on almost every fashion event, there are no healthy choices, except maybe a bottle of water....if you´re lucky. It´s alcohol EVERYWHERE, and WTF..if cool events was to be real cool, and getting the branding of being a part of the time we live in right now, especially in fashion, then people should me more up to date than serving champagne. Its ironic, that having even coconut water, or any other healthy alternatives at a party, gives more the vibe of being luxurious and vibrant than an expensive bottle of champagne, but people doesn't seem to get the point, maybe because it´s too much work....and of course the sponsor deals, I get it....but it might be an idea to make the effort to get another sponsor deal that serves something useful! I was at the Costume Awards the other day, and I could drink so much alcohol I wanted, but when I asked for something else, girl got confused. She rolled her eyes, didnt know where to go, found a bottle in the corner somewhere, offered me that bottle of Olden, with some shitty, apple flavour. Water with sugar??? I couldnt even get pure water???!!! COME ON! Nice behaviour and made me feel so special...But the setting was lovely, met allot of cool people, got to speak with friends I haven't seen in a very long time and got a nice goodie bag at the end, so thank you!
I just came back from Fashion Week in Berlin, and there was an open bar for the guest with champagne and all, but they also had, sparkling water, water with and without flavor and I DIED when I saw they had coconut water. I LIVE for that shit. Its nothing but amazing. i think I drank 2 liters LOL
H&M served really nice drinks on their sportswear event! Thank you!!!!! Love it! :)
I don't want to get all new age on you guys, but eating well, working out and filling my life with good people and good energy works magic! And I realized it now, that WOW, this shit really, really works, cause I haven't taken my morning shakes the past 3-4 days because of traveling and because my jar of wheat grass was empty. What happened? Well, energy levels was not the same.. But now I'm back on the horse, riding like a mother fucker LOL
The shakes that I do, well they're not really shakes since I dont shake them. I use my blender, and just put everything in there (works like a juicer to me), they are different every day. I just use what I have available in my fridge, but the base is the same:
1 dl fresh apple juice (not more, since Im in ketosis and don't want too much carbs)
1 tablespoon of coconut fat
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of Purely Protein
1 tablespoon of Lecithin
2 teaspoons of Activated Barley
2 teaspoons of Rice Bran Solubles
1 teaspoon of Kamut/ wheatgrass
1 teaspoon of AFA-alger (I change that up with Chlorella during the day)
...and then I add some of the greens and berries I have in my fridge depending on what flavor and effect I want. I use spinach, blueberries, raspberries, kale, cucumber etc.
Making my morning energy booster
This really makes my day!
Live life, be thankful and embrace all goodness around you!
