Good morning sunshine,
How are you today? Did you have a good start of the week? Yesterday we had such a lovely day. We started off the day with a green smoothie to set the perfect tune for the rest of the day. Before we made the transition to a Raw Vegan Lifestyle we would never ever think we would replace our morning coffee and (what we thought.. healthy) breakfast with a vibrant and delicious green smoothie. Well, what to say.. never say never in life! 😉 We have two friends from Sweden that are in town for a couple of days. We took them to a lovely vegan restaurant in Jordaan in Amsterdam. Enjoyed some good food and juice while catching up over the last months. After our lunch our friends went for some sightseeing and we two found a perfect little book shop filled with books about energy, crystals, universe – you name it. Heaven if you ask us! In the book store you can also find different raw power food like goji berries, raw cacao and bars! We love to find places like this. We got so excited and purchased the crystal bible and raw chocolate bars and went to a super cosy coffee place next door. We enjoyed some mint tea together with our chocolate (sneaky girls who brings there own… ;)) while reading and enjoyed the rain pouring down outside. In our opinion what we call the perfect afternoon!
We are so excited to learn more about crystals. Are you using and playing with them? Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas about crystals! For us it feels like the next step on our spiritual journey and we are eager to learn more. We will share our thoughts with you later on!
This morning we are also starting off the day with a green smoothie. But first, as always, a big glas of warm lemon water to help clean and alkalize our bodies – among with many different health benefits! We have already made a post about why you should start your day off with lemon water. So check it out if you have not done that earlier. It is a habit simply too good not to start your day with! However, today´s breakfast was a new smoothie version. We had so many apples at home so we figured we could try to make a green smoothie out of it and it turned out very good! So here we go. So let´s make today´s Green Apple Smoothiness 🙂
Put all your ingredients in your mixer and blend and it is ready to be enjoyed!
Today we want to share some very powerful words by Sathya Sai Baba. We try to remind ourselves about this all the time. Take responsibility for our own actions and remember that we are the one in charge. All comes from within!
“When you know the truth, you cannot blame others for the misfortunes of the moment; those misfortunes are of your own creation. What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past. But even that outline can change, and will change, depending on your own thoughts and actions as each new day dawns and then dies away again.”
