Liquid Gold in a Glass: Raspberry & Basil Smoothie

This weekend of late March early April has been full of magic: A Celestial Event (Blue Full Moon), the wrapping up of our third 2018’s month and the start of a new one, and finally Easter celebrations. So many empowering and releasing energies all round us, making our dreams and intentions more powerful than ever. I hope that you shared some amazing moments with your loved ones – and that even though you’re reading that later in the year, you are still spreading the love and sharing great times with those round you. I am one of those who do not wait for Spring or Summer to sip on deliciously creamy and satisfying smoothies and actually use it as a base for each and every single one of my breakfasts. There is nothing like a smoothie – or even better, a Smoothie Bowl topped with loads of goodness – to make me feel happy, grateful and full for the entire morning. I am especially in love with this one since it incorporates a little basil …

Chocolate & Raspberry Nicecream Swirl

I’ve been feeling quite weird this weekend. Maybe it’s all about the rainy weather. The rain drops knocking on my windowpanes. The carrion crows flirting with my doubts and fears, trying to destabilise what’s left of my inner harmony. The wind, swirling round like a mighty being, making me cold and yet powerful, as if I could control it all. I’ve been trying to organise my life, plan my future and find out what the reality could be behind all those dreams. Maybe this was the root of my anxiety. Or the fact that the perfectionist inside of me has constantly been comparing himself with other, allegedly better than him. However, the best is an undefined notion. It does not exist. Well, guess what. The person who’s writing down those lines is not the perfectionist one. It is the dreamy, ambitious, brave and achiever one. The one that wants to climb mountains, to achieve his dreams and embody the change he wants to see in this world. And it feels great! Finding the strength to change …

Belly Bliss – SuperBerry, Avocado & Orange Smoothie

I know I’ve been sharing many different smoothie recipes for a few weeks, and that totally out of the blue. I just realised that the “liquid happiness category” of the blog was a little short on articles, which is why I decided to hopefully please your eyes and bellies with various smoothie combinations for you to enjoy of all their inner goodness. I’ll wait a little longer and am still thinking about giving you my best tips to create delicious smoothies, that do not only taste incredibly but have naturally beautiful virtues – let’s see if I’ll be able to put that down later. For now, let me introduce you to a fruity happiness – today’s Berry, Avocado & Orange Smoothie. I do not think there’s something better on earth than the fresh, acidic and yet sweet taste of berries in the morning. And yes there’s an avocado in this pink smoothie (what the hell is he talking about?! That’s it, he’s crazy…

What about a Healthy & Festive Sunday Family Brunch?

Thinking about it with a mature mind, I do not think there was something more enjoyable as a child than brunching with my family on the Sundays. We actually were only doing it rarely, as it was a special occasion treat, such as for birthdays or bank holidays. But every single time, the whole process of preparing it was grandiose! At that point, the part I was missioned to take care of was the table decoration, and I did adore it; taking our nicest plates out, elegant and shiny glasses and cutlery placed all around evenly, a few flowers here and there. That part did not really changed from what it is today; what has changed is actually the food we prepare (or I prepare for most times haha!). Back then, brunching would mean eating white bread, Nutella, cheese, delicatessen, butter and so on. But now, brunching means something totally different: rye bread toasts, spreads, buckwheat pancakes, chia puddings, fruit salads, smoothies…! And I believe this change is for the better; it’s not only healthier …

Superpower Green Smoothie

As summer slowly turns its back on us, shading a pink morning light and an early evening light on its way to sleep, the heat starts to mellow, which leaves us with some kind of nostalgia; it is time for many of us to wake up from that bright and golden summer dream, to come back to what we usually call reality. But so many things happened, for us all I guess, things that are essential to cherish and to come back to, in order to nourish that sparkle of happiness inside, that smile we can all draw on when life’s a little tougher. I would not even know where to start to describe what I’ve been living and how I’ve been feeling to this date. From meeting amazingly inspiring and uplifting people, living a life-changing (yogic) experience and focusing on my blogging passion (which also led me on self-questioning paths that truly were beautiful), to feeling like my heart and soul have never been so fulfilled, I feel like life really is good to …

Liquid Happiness – Cacao Serenade Smoothie

I absolutely have no idea of whom had that crazily amazing idea to create smoothies, but I surely worship her (or him)! I am having smoothies all the time, especially in the spring and summer time, and for many different reasons: it is sometimes easier to drink a meal instead of eating it, which makes the digestive process much easier and the eating process much shorter; it also is a way to keep my meals lighter when working with food all day and testing each one of the recipes I am trying. Let me tell you how that love story started. When beginning my yoga practice more than two years ago (Oh dear, why is he always talking about yoga…?!), my Mum and I started that lovely tradition which was to grab a smoothie after our morning practice, in one of the cute bakeries of my hometown, and to drink it while wandering through very quiet and peaceful streets, lightened by the dim and pinkish sunrise light…
