Kale cocktail with matcha

After a very long winter, spring has finally arrived bringing with it longest days and warmer temperatures. Some of us waited to throw off big winter coats and sweaters and starts wearing lighter clothes. Some of us waited to change meals from hearty and warming to light and healthy. Now that spring is here we can do all of that. After the winter our body is full of toxins which are a product of eating to much processed food, to much sugar, caffeine, alcohol and lack of exercise. We feel heavy and tired. We are overloaded with bad stuff and we need “Detoxification” which means, our body need to remove all that toxins. To do that we have to help our body by changing a diet and start exercising.What is a better way to start healthy living plan than full body detox? Plenty of nutritious vegetables, fruits, nuts and water. Preparing meals, we should us the best available, fresh, organic and local produce. To help us stay in a new routine we can remember this simple sentence “You are what you eat “. Drinking 2 litters of water will help flush out toxins from the body faster and also hydrate your cells and make you feel fresh and energetic.

Chia seeds pudding with figs and blueberry

I love to start the day with something very tasty and filling. Lately my breakfast was this beautiful looking jar full of goodies.

Chia seeds are so tasty, especially when you add some favourite milk, vanilla paste and blended fruits.

Thats what it takes to start a healthy and energetic day, so why don't you start today:-)

Ingrediens for chia seeds milk:

3 tbs of chia seeds

300 ml of milk

1 tsp of vanilla paste

Ingrediens for fruit mousse:

4 figs

1 cup of fresh blueberry

1 tsp of dry rose petals 

Put chia seeds to a tall jar and cover with milk, add vanilla paste and stir well. Leave for 10 minutes. After that time stir again, cover the jar and put to a fridge for 4 hours. Better yet, mix it the night before and leave it to soak overnight in a fridge, for a ready breakfast to wake up to:-)

To do fruit mousse put all the ingredients to a blender and mix until you get smooth consistency.

Pour mousse over the chia milk and top with some fresh figs and blueberry.
