fitbit alta hr review

On the fence about buying a FitBit Alta HR? Or any type of fitness tracker? Then this blog post is for you. I still remember my first fitness watch. It was a warm summer morning, I was wearing a bright green t-shirt and my new stylish pixie haircut. I was ready for a morning run and started the activity on my also brand new Microsoft Band. And then I waited… and waited… and then left the house and waited a bit more. Finding the satellites on that tracker was a pain, and it got worse over time. Other than that, the watch was a beautifulRead More →

healthy choices for breast cancer prevention blog title

I’m currently reading “How not to die” (UK/US)* by Dr Michael Greger. I’ve talked about the book before in this blog post back in February, and it’s one of those books that you read with a pen and notebook. I’m learning a lot, and I recommend you get yourself a copy no matter if you’re an omnivore, vegetarian or vegan. The book is full of science-backed claims about the relationship between food and disease. Surprise, surprise, plants are winning. I’ve already devoured the information on heart disease, diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, brain disease and different types of cancer. But when I reached the chapterRead More →

thriva review home kit for blood test

Who’s had a busy life lately and started eating chaotically? Raises hand. Who hasn’t had a health check in more than a year? Raises hand. Who’s too busy to schedule a blood test? Raises hand. Or Who’s done some healthy changes in their life and wants to check how the body responded to them? Lowers hand in shame. If you raised your hand at any of the questions, read on, because I tested the Thriva blood test kit from the comfort of my own living room to check how my body’s doing after a few months of… dealing with life. My last check was inRead More →

I did it, I launched my own e-book, on my own website. It took planning, writing, editing and all my free time of the past two months. However, “The Smart Girl’s Journey to Financial Bliss” is now live on https://greenzenfit.life/shop, and with a bit of promotion work, it will bring me some passive income and help me achieve my saving goals faster. Publishing an e-book is something that anyone can do, and it’s a reasonably sized project for people who want to dip their toes in the sea of passive income possibilities. It’s big enough to give you a sense of accomplishment and test theRead More →

As a minimalist, I’m committed to only making purchases when I really need them and not when there are clearances, or the products look nice or when a new version is out for sale. But it hasn’t always been like this. A tale of two pairs Back in 2015, both myself and Andreea started to train with our buddies at the Marathon Store in Bishopsgate. They had a running club there sponsored by adidas. One of the nicest offerings was the fact that they were giving free running trainers to try during group runs. The trainers were top of line adidas Ultra Boost and IRead 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 The Second episode, 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 forRead 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 / DessertRead More →

Welcome to the second blog post of the series! You can have a look at Episode 1 here, episode 3 and 4. And this is what I have for you today. Enjoy! Food – Alpro Oat milk I picked the Oat milk for the title, but the 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 yoghurt (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 forRead More →

Welcome to Vegan Friday Faves, a new series on the blog. Every other Friday, I’m going to post a new set of 5 different things: one food, one snack or sweet, one beauty product, one cleaning product and one source of information. If you’re vegan or you want to explore the vegan life every once in a while, this might be useful for you. And when it comes to beauty or cleaning products, why buy non-vegan or tested on animals when you can choose a better, cruelty-free option? So here is Set no 1. We also added Episode 2, 3 and 4. Food – LindaRead More →

Disclaimer: I got the product for free to review, but all opinions are my own. Update March 2017: we reviewed this product in 2016, before becoming vegan, so we’re not sure if it is suitable for vegans When someone contacted me about “dr. do good” which is an in-shower body moisturizer, I was not really convinced, I know other brands have tried before and failed. After a quick look on the website I was quite impressed – natural ingredients, London company, good vibes – I asked if the product is tested on animals and it’s not, so I was more than happy to try itRead More →
