My Favorite Detox Salad

By 8

At the end of May we had some free days, so we took some time off and made our first hiking trip to our beautiful mountains. It was so great – the effort, the sweat, the moments you think you’ll give up, they were all instantly forgotten when we were rewarded by the amazing scenery from the mountaintop. It wasn’t a really difficult trail, but for us, as beginners, it was quite a challenge, but we fully enjoyed it! We used to visit the mountains just to relax with a coffee in beautiful surroundings, but from now on…

Nourishing Vegan Milks – 3 Ways

By 10

During my forty days of a vegan diet before Easter, I discovered a new passion – vegan milks. I tried hundreds of combinations, played with ingredients, experimented with flavors, and I realized that you don’t need cutting-edge technology to obtain smooth, dense, and creamy vegan milks. You can make awesome liquids with a normal blender, using the right quantities of soaked ingredients. Nuts or seeds + water = vegan milk – it is that easy! If you hit the right consistency, all you have to do is …

3 Restoring Spring Juices

Although I hate being in a hurry, there are days when I simply don’t have a choice. You have to get to different places, meet lots of people, and most often, you end up skipping your wake-up routine and your morning workout, getting dehydrated, and eating junk food in a hurry. These days can be much easier on your body and mind if you learn to put your health first and organize things. And, a nourishing and energizing smoothie is definitely …

3 Day Detox and Restore Plan

By 37

I tried so many versions of “magical” detox diets and struggled a lot until I understood exactly how it works. The concept is really basic – unless you suffer from chronic illness, a detox should be easy to do, adapted to the season and to your own lifestyle. For me, it would be impossible to keep a juice-only detox during winter when my body craves warm food. Putting lots of pressure on your body and feeling guilty about all the little things that you just can’t handle will not lead you to a balanced state of body and mind. Moreover, you will feel stressed, your body will react, and…

Red Cabbage and Kale Slaw with Turmeric Tahini Dressing

By 4

After a long summer when fresh tomato salad was present almost every day on our table, it was about time to change the color palette and move to another class of nutrients. The bright magenta and deep green won my heart from the moment I saw the veggies at the farmers’ market, and I promised myself I’ll even wear that combination if I manage to find clothes that beautifully colored. They hypnotized me so much that I always come back home with …
