Desde que quede embarazada hace casi 3 años, tome la decision de llevar una vida mas saludable y balanceada. Mas consciente de los alimentos que ingiero. Asi proporcionaba nutrientes reales a mi bebe y a mi. Como dice el dicho. ERES LO QUE COMES.

Siempre me han gustado las frutas y los vegetales, asi que no es lo mas dificil si tienes tus prioridades claras. LLevar una vida saludable es un estilo de vida, no una dieta rapida de unas semanas y volvemos a los viejos habitos. Cambiar requiere determinacion, no es facil pero tampoco imposible. Para mi no funciona un cambio radical y eliminar todo. yo creo mas en el balance, 80% saludable, 20% pecaditos.

Comer debe ser algo placentero y no una tortura! y la clave para lograr incorporar alimentos saludables, es simplemente ingerir alimentos que te gustan pero de manera saludable. Ejemplo me encantan las fresas, no por eso comerme un cheesecake cada vez que me antojo significa estoy siendo saludable. En su lugar me tomo un  smoothie con fresas en el desayuno a base de agua o las uso como topping en mi receta favorita del desayuno,  Y hablando de desayuno, te compartire  una receta super RAPIDA, FACIL y DELICIOSA con semillas de Chia.

No me invente esta receta, di con ella porque estaba buscando opciones diferentes para el desayuno pero ricas, saludables y que no involucraran lacteos, asi podria compartirlas con mi bebe.  Encontré varias recetas en youtube de inspiracion  y decidi armar la mia,  Queria algo a base de chia y una alternativa al yogurt de almendras que compro en el super. Una alternativa libre de preservantes.

Me decidi por un pudding por su facil preparacion y porque seria mucho mas facil que mi bebe le gustara tambien.  Y preferi de Chia porque ya habia leido de sus increibles beneficios, aqui te comparto un link donde puedes encontrar toda la informacion nutricionial sobre estas super semillas, entre ellas que estan cargadas de antioxidantes y minerales, Cuidan tu corazon, protejen tus huesos, ayudan a paso gastro intestinal y tambien te ayudan a bajar de peso. Puedes hacer click aqui  para mas informacion CUERPOYMENTE.COM   

Comenezemos con la receta! Vas a necesitar:

INGREDIENTES Y CANTIDADES

BASE

  • 2 CUCHARADAS DE SEMILLAS DE CHIA (PUEDEN SER NEGRAS, BLANCAS O MIXTAS) EN MI CASO USE MIXTAS.

  • 2/3 TAZA DE LECHE DE COCO O DE ALMENDRAS (SI USAS LECHE DE COCO FULL FAT TE QUEDARA MAS ESPESO)
  • MIEL.

FRUTAS

  • 2 FRESAS GRANDES
  • ARÁNDANOS
  • 1/2 BANANA O GUINEO
  • MANZANA ROJA EN TUQUITOS (PARA DARLE ALGO DE CRUNCH

TOPPINGS

  • HOJUELAS DE COCO . RED MILL COCONUT FLAKES  (RECOMIENDO SIN PRESERVANTES,NI ADITIVOS) PUEDES USAR CHISPAS DE CHOCOLATE, PASITAS,O NUECES EN TROCITOS PEQUEÑOS) YUUUMMMMM

PREPARACION

La preparación es sencilla. Simplemente vierte la leche en un bowl con las semillas de Chia. Déjala reposar unos 20 minutos, así la Chia liberara su gel nutritivo y su digestión sera mas apropiada para el cuerpo, así como la absorción de sus vitaminas y minerales. La chia y la leche formaran una crema parecida al yogurt o pudding. Revuelve bien y comienza a agregar las frutas. Por ultimo los topings y a disfrutar.

2018 has come to an end and 2019 is here all shiny waiting for everybody’s resolutions to get on the mail or email I should say.  But did you reach all your goals and completed all your resolutions last year? I did reach almost all of mine, so I decided to share those tricks that help me stay on track and determined to reach them all.

Here’s my list of tips to follow in order to achive your goals for this 2019:

1. Choose realistic short term goals that you can easily achieve.

Easy goals once accomplished, will motivate you to carry on with the other one. For example, drink 8 glasses of wáter everyday or have desserts only on Sundays.

2.Write them down,

Put them all on paper. Print it and have it right in front of your computer so you can see it and be reminded them everyday.

3. Get a Habit or Task Planner App.

If you are a digital junkie and prefer to have everything on your phone or Tablet, I recommend you to try a task planner. Accordding to Elise Moreau, you can never have enough productivity tools. She published a great article with the best goal tracker apps for 2019.  You should check it out. She recommends great options like WAYOFLIFE which I love. I didn’t wanted somenthing to complicated, its super friendly and I can track bad and good habits for the entire week.

4. Asign a deadline or date to each goal.

For example, if one of your goals is walking up early, your goal should be for example, Wake up at 7:.00 from Monday to Thursday for an entire month. If you dont assign a deadline to your goals, you can sit forever and not accomplish them. You will get into the I’ll do it later mode. The year will go by and so your 2019 resolution.

5. Choose mid term and long term goals.

Mid term and long term goals will push you to the next level. Chase them once you have achieved your short term, which will be the easy ones. Then go back to point No. 4. For example: Save x amount of money by x date.

6. Reward yourself for achieving each goal.

Treat yourself with something special after achieving each goal. Like dinner, a spa, a mani pedi or both! You will surely think about the prize and chase those goals.

7. Get backup!

If you know you can get a little lazy somentimes. Ask for a friend or your partner to keep an eye on you if you cheat. Belief me these people will do the job.

8. Keep a positive attitude and have fun.

Don´t carry your goals like a burden, think about why you started, the benefits and reasons behind them.

Those are my 8 tips for reaching and achieving your goals and resolution this New Year. 2019 bring it on, we are ready!

Hope my tips will help you a bit!

I love gift giving not only in Christmas(which is the best time of the year ever) but for any special occasion. Birthdays, anniversaries or simply getting a detail for those I love.

Now,  gift giving is not only about the gift itself. It’s about WRAPPING THE GIFTS as well!

I love to personalize them, so whoever the gift is for, it has my signature. Also, is a way for me to express how much I care. Gifts should be personal and all about the one who’s receiving it.

For example, how cool is for a kid to receive a gift with balloons on top instead of a bow? Well, the same goes for adults, it’s just that most people won’t admit it… hehehe

I encourage you to get creative and personalize your presents for the next occasion ;-).

Here are some of my suggestions based on the wrappings I did for last Christmas!

  1. First, pick a color palette. Neutral and metallics, red and golden, black and white, vibrant neons, etc.
  2. Second, go shopping some fun, elegant or subtle materials. All depends on your theme and color palette.

    THESE ARE A FEW OF THE ITEMS I RECOMMEND YOU TO GET!

    (apart from the basics, scissors and tape)

PERSONALIZED CARDS

Instead of the usual bow and ribbon, go for personalized cards based on the occasion. They are so much fun and give a nice twist to the present.  To make it better,  add a message on the card.

WRAPPING PAPER IN THE COLOR OF YOUR CHOOSING

Stick to a color palette and tied back to your theme. Choose diverse prints, textures and even solids.  When you stick to a color palette,  everything will match! If it’s you’re first time, it will be easier too.

I opted for rose quartz, golden, white and black.

In prints I bought a golden paper with Christmas details, a white roll with tonal and bright stripes and a solid soft pink.

ASSORTED & FUN RIBBONS

Go nuts with the ribbons. No limits here. When I was ribbons shopping I found this gorgeous golden thread from, which tied back perfect to what I had in mind.

START EXPERIMENTING AND HAVING FUN

COMBINE MATERIALS

Remember, if you choose a cohesive color palette, everything will match. It´s just a matter of letting you creative mind do the work.

 

LINE UP YOUR CREATIONS AND GET READY TO SURPRISE YOUR LOVED ONES

WRAPPING PAPER, CARDS AND GOLDEN THREAD / LYNNS HALLMARK

THE REST OF THE RIBBONS I GOT THEM AT MY LOCAL SHOP.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!

Best,

SOS FOR HANGOVER SKIN

by Debbie

Did you party long last night or did you just had too many drinks and sadly have to wake up way too early today?? Let me share with you my tips that not only work as SOS for a party looking face, they’ve also helped me when I had a tough night and worked until very late. We all know once you look in the mirror the next morning, the reflection tells it all!

WATER

As soon as I wake up, I drag myself into the kitchen to get a glass of water, the No.1 super natural hydrator. Then I go ahead and place my favorite 911 eye patches in the fridge to cool while I head to take a cold shower to activate my circulation and off course WAKE UP.

Now let get into to fun part!

JOSIE MARAN CLEANSING ARGAN OIL

I cleanse my face with Josie Maran Cleasing oil. It’ the best cleanser I’ve tried in a long time. If you have dry skin like me, you will not regret using it. If you are more into the oily side, I will recommend to consult with your dermatologist first. I wet my face and then add 2 pumps of the cleasing oil into my fingers, rub it a little and then start massaging my face. The sensation is totally different from other cleansers. The oil warms into your skin and turns into milk giving you a very soothing sensation. It takes away all impurities without being too harsh. Argan oil is packed with healing and protective properties like triterpenoids which offer tissue healing if you have scars. It also has anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties. Finally, I rinse with water and dry with soft padding motions.

TARTE PACK YOUR BAGS

My favorite 911 undereye patches! I take them from the fridge, remove them from the satchet gently and place them right below my under eyes. The cold feel refreshing and the inflammation under the eyes will be reduced.  These patches contain Gardenia Taitensis extract which is a flower that in counties like Samoa, is used to treat inflammation. You will feel very quickly how the skin tightens. I leave the patches for approximately 15 minutes and start getting dressed.

CELESTIAL MOISTURIZER BY LUSH

One of my favorite products from Lush is their Celestial Moisturizer. The aroma of almond milk and vanilla is simply delightful to me. One of the key ingredients in this cream is almonds. According to Joy Bauer, almonds are a great source of Vitamin E which protects skin cells from damage. Joy Bauer is a nutrition and health expert founder of Nourish Snacks, she is also columnist for Woman’s Day magazine. A tip for this cream, keep this product on the fridge, I love the cooling sensation on my skin.
Back to the routine, after I remove my eyepatches, I gently massage my under eyes with almost no pressure to have the skin absorb what’s left of the eyepatches. I take an almond size amount of moisturizer and massage it throughout my face. Because of being vegan, this product will not irritate your skin, on the contrary, will leave your skin super soft with a luminous glow that I personally love. I’ve even extended the application under my eyes and worked perfectly.

BIODERMA 100 TINTED SPF

As an extra tip to finish our rescue session, add some spf to your skin. My esthetician recommended me Bioderma 100% protection.  It will protect  my sensitive skin with cellular bioprotection.  It’s also inted, so it will give a soft golden tan that will also contribute to hide the lack of sleep on your skin. For application I pour a small amount and dab it into my skin. I recommend only padding motions throughout the face.
Now you are ready for a little makeup. I have special products and technique for makeup in this special scenario, however well talk about that in my next beauty post.

Let me know if it worked for you!

DELICIOUS & NUTRITIOUS AVOCADO

by Debbie

Its always hard for me to have breakfast. I wake up very early and having breakfast is the least thing I want to do everyday. However,  it’s the most important meal and not having it, just messes with my whole self for the rest of the day.  So, I decided that skipping breakfast was no longer an option.

As the week goes by, I start running out of ideas or options, healthy options for breakfast. Believe me, some days scrambled eggs with tomatoes, or oatmeal are not want I want to eat. So, I started thinking about what I love to eat to get me excited about having breakfast. It had to be fun and delicious…

I love avocado, give it me to in guacamole, salads, even a burger(let me clarify, every now and then only) and I’m down for it. I went to the supermarket to get some for dinner, and as I walked to the cashier, I said to myself, wait a minute..this could work for breakfast! and that’s when avocado became an option.  Easy to prepare and charged of positive ingredients.

This new breakfast option features one of my favourite Fruits. Which gets me very excited to have breakfast and that’s what I was looking for.  Some people actually think avocados are vegetables and they’re  fruits actually. Avocados are super nutritious and loaded with a large amount of vitamins. They even contain more potassium than bananas, which is a very important nutrient not found in high concentrations as in avocados.  This fruit also contributes to prevent eye deseases like cataratas. They’re are also high in fiber. According to the book THE WOMEN’S HEALTH DIET, research shows that fiber can fire up your fat burn as much as 30% and studies find that those who eat more fiber gain the least weight over time.  What are we wainting to get some avocado! This fruit is also very low in carbohydrates, wich are the perfect combination for a good meal.

My healthy breakfast includes,  1 slice of fiber bread, tuna mixed with some pepper, sea salt and only a little mayonaise with olive oil. For extra protein, two small boiled eggs!

Try it one of this days, you wont regret it!

Siempre es difícil para mí para tomar el desayuno. Me levanto muy temprano y tomar desayuno es lo menos que quiero hacer todos los días. Sin embargo, es la comida más importante y no tomarlo, simplemente se acaba con todo mi ser por el resto del día. Por lo tanto, decidí que saltarse el desayuno ya no seria una opción.

A medida que avanza la semana, seguramente empiezo a quedarme sin opciones o ideas, opciones saludables para el desayuno. Créanme, algunos días huevos revueltos con tomate y avena no son lo que deseo comer. Así que empecé pensar y analizar, buscando opciones, pensando en lo que me gusta de comer. Al escoger algo que me gustase, era mas fácil para mi tomar el desayuno. Tenia que ser divertido y delicioso …

Me encanta el aguacate, lo puedo comer en guacamole, ensaladas, incluso en una hamburguesa (Aclaro, de vez en cuando solamente) y ahí estoy!  Fui al supermercado a comprar unos para la cena y mientras caminaba a pagarlos, me dije, un minuto, yo podría desayunar con aguacate! y es así entonces cuando el aguacate se convirtió en una opción.

Esta nueva opción de desayuno, lleva una de mis frutas favoritas.  Lo cual logra que quiera tomar el desayuno, y eso era lo que estaba buscando. Algunas personas piensan que los aguacates son vegetales y son frutas. Los aguacates son muy nutritivos y están cargados con una gran cantidad de vitaminas. Incluso contienen más potasio que las bananas, que es un nutriente muy importante que no se encuentra en altas concentraciones como en los aguacates. Esta fruta también contribuye a evitar enfermedades oculares como cataratas y desgaste visual. Son también son altos en fibra. De acuerdo al libro THE WOMEN’S HEALTH DIET, investigaciones muestran que la fibra puede contribuir a tu quema de grasa tanto como un 30% y estudios muestran que aquellos que ingieren mucha fibra ganan menos pesa con el tiempo. Que estamos esperando para entrarle a los aguacates! Esta fruta también es muy baja en carbohidratos, la cual es una combinación perfecta para una buena comida si estas pensando en perder peso y comer sano.

Mi nueva opción de desayuno incluye, 1 rodaja de pan de fibra, atún mezclado con un poco de pimienta, la sal del mar y sólo un poco de mayonesa con aceite de oliva. Y como  proteína extra, dos pequeños huevos hervidos!

Inténtalo uno de estos días, no te arrepentirás!

POWERFUL SNACK

by Debbie

I know for sure this happens to everybody! When you sit to watch a TV show, movie, read a magazine, a book, or those days when you’re feeling really ancious,.. if you are like me,  the urge of a snack is intense. The sad part is that common people will associate a snack with chips, ice cream, beer, etc. (a.k.a. non healthy foods).

For a couple of months now, I’ve been evaluating how everything I eat reflects into my skin and how I feel.
Chips made me thirstier and the next day my skin is very dry (if I ate late and went to bed almost right away), because of the high sodium content. Ice cream just inflates my belly like a balloon and once I finish eating, guess what? I’m still craving for more, not satisfied at all.

So what did I do? I just STOP buying those non healthy snacks. Instead, I’m buying and eating some of my favorite fruits.  Kiwies and strawberries. I already like them, so why not to eat them more frequently.

But what’s in it for me you might think. Did you know that kiwies and strawberries are two the most powerful fruits out there? High in ANTIOXIDANTS, VITAMIN C, VITAMIN K, POTASSIUM and MANGANESE among others. Some of these components neutralize free radicals that can cause skin damage. These amazing fruits, helps prevent colon cancer as well as cardiovascular and inflamatory deseases. So, start eating some kiwi and strawberries! They are not only healthy, but delicious and exotic. What more can you ask for? After eating them you will feel enterily satisfied.

A tip for breakfast if you are into dairy; add some yogurt and granola! I recommend 100% natural ingredients granola!

Estoy segura esto le sucede a todo el mundo. Te preparas para ver un programa de televisión, leer una revista, un libro o estas muy ansioso… bueno si eres como yo, el deseo de comerte un snack es muy intenso.  La parte triste es que las personas promedio asocian los snacks con chips, helados, cerveza, etc. (mejor conocidos como alimentos no saludables)

Hace un par de meses decidí evaluar cómo todo lo que como se refleja en mi piel y en cómo me siento.
Los chips por ejemplo me hacen sentir mucha sed y mi piel al día siguiente esta super seca (claro si las como muy tarde y me acuesto a dormir casi enseguida), debido a  su alto contenido de sodio. El helado por otra parte me hace sentir el vientre como un globo y una vez he terminado de comer, ¿adivinen qué? Todavía estoy con mucha ansiedad e insatisfecha.

Así que simplemente NO compro mas snacks no saludables. En lugar, compro algunas de mis frutas favoritas. Kiwies y fresas! Me encantan así que porque no comerlas con mayor frecuencia.

Pero pensaran ustedes, y que beneficio tengo obtengo yo? ¿Sabías que los kiwies y las fresas son algunas de las frutas más poderosas? Tienen un alto contenido de antioxidantes, vitamina C, vitamina K, potasio y magnesio entre otros. Algunos de estos componentes neutralizan los radicales libres que pueden causar mucho daño a la piel. También contribuyen a prevenir el cáncer de colon, enfermedades cardio vasculares e inflamatorias.  Así que empieza a comer kiwi y fresas! No sólo son saludables, sino que también son deliciosas y exóticas. ¿Qué más se puede pedir? Después de comerlas te sentirás completamente satisfecho.

Tip para el desayuno; si te gustan los  lácteos, añade yogurt y granola! Recomiendo granola con ingredientes 100% naturales!
