After the Oreo weekend, I didn’t panic but I knew I have to get back on track. On Tuesday I was at 54.9kg and my goal weight to win DietBet is 54.4kg. I also wanted to make this weight loss more sustainable, have peanut butter or nuts if I want to, eat dry fruit if I’m in the mood for some, not be afraid of certain foods. Because let’s face it, if I win my DietBet by eating only low calorie foods, after I’m done with it I’m going to put the weight back on. And OMG, it worked! 54.2kg on Sunday morning by beingRead More →

Week 2 was perfect and I was hitting all my numbers in myfitnesspal every day in an effort to reduce the effects of the weekend to come. We had a house guest, so I knew I’m going to eat heavier meals. Just to have an idea of where I’m standing, I weighed myself of Friday morning. 54.1kg, better than my DietBet goal weight.

Ginger shot experience no. 1 Before one of the classes at the FitMiBODY studio, Andreea was offered a ginger shotRead More →

Our first toe dip in the raw world was a promising success. We know that the best amount of nutrients are preserved with minimum to none heating, so we believe in the raw concept, although far from religiously. But raw protein rich foods were something we wanted to try for a long time. So here’s the story of our first try. We used the food processor for this task, we can only guess that you can also use the blender. And that’s pretty much the only utensil you need. Ingredients we have popped in the processor: nuts mix (brazil, cashew, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans) –Read More →

We’re very excited to tell you that Wren Kitchens reached out to us to take part in the #LittleKitchen campaign. The campaign is all about getting children involved in the kitchen – cooking and eating nutritious, wholesome meals and having fun doing so. This was right down our alley. In a time when fast food consumption is dangerously high, teaching children where food comes from and how easy it is to eat healthy is a simple way to make things better. Update: This recipe made it into the #littleKitchen e-book! Whoop whoop! You can read about the campaign and download the e-book here. We’re crazyRead More →
