As some of you may know, this April I became an Arbonne Independent Consultant. I want to have my own business, but until I have my own product to sell, I wanted to grow a business with an already existing product. And what better product than something that I’m really passionate about? All Arbonne products are vegan, gluten free, the ingredients are sustainably sourced and they are on PETA’s list of cruelty free companies. And before I let people know that I’ve joined Arbonne, I’ve set myself up with A LOT of products to test them myself so I can give advice and advertise themRead More →

A lot of people think that it’s too late for them to make changes to their lives and believe they will just have to live with the regret. But it’s never too late if you want to step up and improve your health. And a lot of people end up in the best health they have ever been. But if you do want to make a difference, it’s time to do it now. After all, so many people say they will make changes tomorrow. But then another bunch of excuses arrive. Here’s why you need to make changes to your life today. You could live a longer lifeRead More →

Since we went vegan, going out to eat is not as straight forward as before. We either do some research beforehand and have a proper meal or go to the first restaurant we can find and have chips with some chips on the side (it doesn’t sound too bad, does it?!). We may also get lucky and find cafes with vegan food and desserts, especially the ones in Shoreditch or central London. And a piece of advice: unless the menu items are clearly marked as vegan, ask. I was surprised a few times by things that looked vegan, but contained cheese. If you’re in theRead More →

We made it to the 4th blog post of the series! You can read the previous posts here: Episode 1, featuring vegan sausages, lentil chips and a vegan deodorant that works Episode 2, featuring a must try ice cream Episode 3, featuring a scrumptious chocolate and sweet perfume. If you are a vegan brand and you have products that I can try, please contact me! Food – Fry’s Family Food Chicken-Style Nuggets These are seriously good. They look, smell and taste really nice. We love them as an occasional treat and for 200kcal per 100g, there is nothing to regret about them. And for 0.4gRead More →

A few weeks ago I received a trial pack of Omni Superfood to try out and review. I’m usually reluctant when it comes to products labeled “superfood”, but why not give it a go? The product has 2 versions, male and female, so of course I got the one designed for women. Why use supplements? You know we always promote a healthy diet, rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, wholegrains, nuts and seeds and healthy fats. And of course exercise, for both your body and your mind. But that doesn’t always happen as planned, we don’t eat enough of the good stuff, some minerals areRead More →

“What do you eat?” It’s a question we get a lot and it’s hard to answer, we usually just say “I don’t know, many things. Almost everything except animal products”. So I sat down and made a list, Alin added a few things I missed and I think I can now give you an idea of what we have in the kitchen at almost any given time. But it’s not just what we eat, but also the frequency. Yes, I eat sweet potato but only about once a month. I have an avocado a week. But I eat nuts almost every day. Beans Black beansRead More →

Welcome to Episode no 3. You can see the previous episodes here: Episode 1 and Episode 2. Enjoy! If you are a brand and you have products that I can try, please contact me! Food – Violife slices Many brands, including the supermarket ones, are making huge improvements when it comes to dairy free cheese. I’m sure 2017 will be a great year for vegans and I’m looking forward to trying new things. So far, our favourite cheese is Violife, original flavour. Sandwiches taste like the non-vegan ones, which is something very encouraging for people who are thinking about giving up animal products. Snack /Read More →

Welcome to the second blog post of the series! You can have a look at Episode 1 here. And this is what I have for you today. Enjoy! Food – Alpro Oat milk I picked the Oat milk for the title, but truth is, we are big fans of Alpro overall. We use the Almond milk for our morning porridge and savoury recipes, we use the Soy yogurt (either Almond or Vanilla flavour) as a snack with fruit and nuts, the desserts are fabulous and the Oat milk is a nice drink whenever we’re travelling and a perfect companion for a vegan brownie. Snack /Read More →

Oh wow, I finished PIIT28! 28 days of workouts and good food and it’s safe to say that my Christmas belly is long gone. At the beginning of January, I posted my monthly plan and mentioned PIIT28 and DietBet and I also posted a weekly recap to keep my accountable. Go to Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 to see some of my favourite (or least favourite) exercises and the foods that helped me get to this day. It’s now time for a final recap and the dreaded weigh-in. What is PIIT28*? PIIT is Pilates Intense Interval Training and 28 is the amount of minutesRead More →

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 →
