CATCHING A COLD? GRAB A DRINK. AND ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER…

Two days ago I started feeling a bit weird, my head was aching and my throat started to feel suspiciously sore. The whole family that I live with had just been sick and a couple of my friends as well, but since I very rarely get sick this still came as a not so appreciated surprise to me. I quickly decided I was not going to let the cold win and started drinking shots of apple cider vinegar to kill the germs as well as a teaspoon of raw honey. When I spoke to Sarah (my health guru hehe) the next morning she quickly advised me to flush out the germs by drinking 4 litres of lemon water and only juices for lunch. Hm.. Me? Who already run to pee every ten minutes because of the amounts I drink at the gym – 4 freakin litres?! Well, I’ll give it a go, I thought. The hardest part would be not to eat a real meal, not to chew, and not to get hungry or hangry while doing it. But okay, I agreed to that as well.

The day went by and I drank my water and by 4 pm I was still not hungry, and I had only had breakfast that morning. What the fuck? Well, I drank my homemade coldpressed juice consisting of beetroot, carrots, apple and lemon. Yum! By dinner time I was still not overly hungry but happy to get to chew a warm meal just for the enjoyment. I didn’t have my regular afternoon coffee either and still stayed awake so this itself was a bit of an accomplishment. 

Anyways, since I saw what I was able to do, keeping full on pretty much just water and still having lots of energy, I actually agreed to try out step two that Sarah was advising me to do – So this morning I swapped my beloved huge bowl of porridge with peanutbutter and apple for a green banana kale smoothie. I swapped my two cups of coffee for two litres of lemon water and then headed to the gym for a lighter legworkout. No coffee in the morning was a struggle mentally… But I managed! Sure it felt a bit strange not having the same ”fullness” to work with that I’m used to, but strenght wise I can’t say I noticed any difference, and I thought I would have felt a lot weaker. 

So today I have had 4 litres of water, a green smoothie, half the size of my regular porridge (post workout), a bowl of fruits and nuts and soon I’m having a real dinner. I’m not gonna lie, right now I am super hungry and will enjoy every bite of my hot meal but I have managed all day to go satisfied and without cravings. This is all because of the difference in how much water I’m drinking now. Most people probably go around dehydrated without knowing it, and eat food instead of drinking water to try to satisfy the need. Try drinking 3-4 litres of water throughout the day, and half of it before you eat anything else in the morning. It really does make a difference and I will definitely get better with this, even though I probably won’t go as extreme with everything else since I still love my food routines. Maybe I just won’t have to eat as much to feel full in the future. Love learning these things.

CHARGRILLED CRUNCHYNESS

Namnamnam! I am getting so inspired to learn new recipies when I get the chance to taste all these amazing ecoeatery dishes. This was for dinner yesterday, and my tastebuds were singing. Chargrilled pumpkin, zucchini, mushrooms and pepitas with boiled brown and black rice. Olive oil, himalayan salt and pepper and you are done. How awesome?!

My food intake has been very different than usual yesterday and today because I started feeling sick the other day and since I ain’t got time for that shit I was very determined to cleanse the toxins and germs out straight away, more about that in the next post though.

ECO EATERY – SO I STEPPED RIGHT INTO MY BIGGEST DREAM

A positive mindset and affirmations can take you such a long way, without you even knowing about it. Some people love to complain about small things, big things, all things. What is there to gain from complaints? A few ”aaw”s and compassionate looks here and there, sure, if that will make you happy… Except that it wont. It will shine a spotlight on all the bad things in your life and you’ll be walking around with a shitload of bad energy, and what you send out is what you get back. Like a big fat bill right in your postbox baby.

However, if you make a decicion to look at life without complaints, without doubt, fear, stress or anything that can affect you negatively, then you’ll see astonishing things happening. I know it might sound like a bunch of mumbo jumbo for those who never tried it, but I am asking you to open your mind to it, it’s so worth it. If changing your whole way of thinking is onetwothree steps to many, then start with just writing what you want and what is your happiness, on a piece of paper. Look at it, say it out loud, believe in it. 

Ever since I started seeing how positive thinking and affirmations could change your life to the better, bringing dreams and opportunities to your doorstep as long as you let it, I have always tried to be positive about where I am and what I do. If I see myself in a situation I don’t love, I change it, I don’t settle. Trying to see everything with a happy mindset and accepting things that hasn’t gone the way I expected them to, as well as encouraging loved ones to do the same, has brought me to my dream. For real. Here in Australia, surrounded by likeminded people exploding with ideas and ambitions. How wicked is that?! And the craziest part is that I didn’t even have to search for it, I didn’t know what I was searching for or that I was even searching, I just kept doing what I loved to do, never settling for less then complete happiness, and all of a sudden I got a phone call from the other side of Australia, (I was in Sunshine Coast and got a call from Perth) with an offer to do all that I love, for a living, and being a part of what is going to be an exciting journey to greatness. Just a few weeks after that call I flew over to Perth to meet Sarah who I’d only spoken with on the phone, hoping that this thing would work out, and well, here I am still, totally working it out.

I am so happy to say that I’ll be staying in Perth permanently, to work in this new incredible Wellness centre and Eco Eatery, helping people find balance and health in their lives as well getting to work with what I’m most passionate about. I’m gonna be working with real, nutritious food creations, talking about nutrition to people that wanna learn, helping people in their fitness journey, how to eat and to train in a balanced lifestyle etc etc. So if there are any Perth living readers out there, I hope to see you at the centre as soon as we open the doors, cuz it will be freakin fantastic! Right now I’m in the process of getting all my certificates and courses done and after that I’m good to go, and I can’t wait!

Thanks a million Sarah for finding me and letting me into your dreamteam!

We’re still in the working progress stage but make sure to follow @ecoeatery on instagram and Eco Eatery on Facebook for updates and crazy delicious recipies of nutritious foods. You’ll ofcourse get to follow the progress here as well and to all the Perth people, see ya soon babes!
