Changes in life

Hello gorgeous,

It is Friday and the weekend is almost about to begin. How has your week been so far? We can barely believe it is already Friday. It has been a pretty hectic week we have to admit. We are still catching up on work after our last eventful days in Amsterdam, the move to Sweden and to start to get things organized over here. We want to give our appologies for you who have sent us e-mails and messages. We promise we will reply as soon as we can!

sverige2After some days back in good old Sweden we have to say it feels unsual good to be here. Both of us have always been on the run wanting to go somewhere. We are still on the run but now it is on completely new terms. We love Sweden but trying to explain it we have always had a trapped feeling while we have been living here. For us there has been something calling us out in the world. It is our nature and we have always been eager to go out there, explore, meet new people, see new places, put ourselves in new situations and gain new experiences. This is simply how we are and our heart desires have always been to have that freedom to do all those things, not to be tied up anywhere. We are really amazed of the journey we have undergone this spring. We have been seeking all the answers within ourselves, we have tried to quiet our minds as much as we can, we have chosen love, been grateful, stayed present and have had universe to guide us. Now we are creating our lives we have always dreamt of. To be able to come and go as we wish to. To get the contrasts that we need in our lives and that make us feel alive. Sweden is always going to be a place we call home but we see ourselves as the citizens of the world. This time being back it occured to us that nothing has been this beautiful before. Yesterday when we walked on the street outside the house we were asking ourselves if it is just us but have the surroundings always been this gorgeous? This for us was just a proof that our minds have switched completely. To stay present and to be conscious of everything that is surrounding you there is simply nothing but beauty to be seen. It is truly amazing and you have no idea how much we appreciate to be where we are, right now at this very second. 🙂

973184_10151654426051054_119295168_nAnother great benefit to be home at our parents is their food processor. It somehow makes the smoothies so creamy and delicious. On a sunny morning like today there is nothing better than to enjoy this refreshing creation. We call it Creamy Berry Bliss simply because it brings a big smile on your face. 🙂

INGREDIENTS
– 3 bananas
– 1 cup frozen raspberries
– 1 cup frozen blueberries
– 3 dates
– Maca powder
– Crushed flaxseeds as topping

Place all the ingredients in you blender or food processor, mix well. Pour it in a glass or bowl and top with crushed flaxseeds. Ready to be enjoyed!

Saturday Fever

392454_152426824932083_923468485_n7539_262719887176557_2086285610_n24640_183062608511406_240259740_n486644_565650496801734_1355183503_nHappy Saturday!

The weekend is here and our Saturday fever is on. For this weekend we want to remind you to be yourself. Nothing is more important. You are unique and you are in the possession of your great potential to accomplish any dream you have. Dare to dream big, believe in it, feel it and eventually you will realize how universe is unfolding for you to receive it. And as the first quote above states, do all the good you can. Give, give genuinly, give your love and be grateful for being where you are right now in this very moment. It is the secret universal law, by giving from the heart you will get it back many times over and by multiple means. You are a miracle and you can create miracles. So for this weekend we encourage you to go out and live it!

oss2oss1What are you doing this weekend? Last night we were out and about with some friends and needed to sleep in today. Soon we are about to go and visit a dear friend of ours for a tea and some raw cake. It is so much fun to experiment in the kitchen but it is simply not possible for us to indulge in all the sweetnes ourselves. There is no better way than to share a bit of heaven with a beloved one! If we get the cake approved we will post it here one of these day. 🙂

green1Before we leave you we want to share our green smoothie of the day. We have said it so many times before we know but there is seriously nothing better to start off the day with than a green smoothie. Especially after a late night out the green smoothie boosts your whole system and makes you feel alive. It is awesomeness to feel all the nutritions being absorbed in your body. Today we felt a big craving for something refreshing but yet with a little touch of sweetness. Our Cherry Blossom was a real satisfaction and we are really ready to get this Saturday started.

INGREDIENTS
– Spinach
– 4 Bananas
– 2 cups frozen raspberries
– 1 cup frozen cherries
– 2 dates
– Maca
– Chlorella
– Flax-seeds as topping

Simply place all your ingredients in your blender. Mix well, pour into your glass and it is ready to be enjoyed! Keep shining beautiful friend ❤

Today´s powerful Words  by Hermann Hesse:

“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.”

Pretty good reminder in the texts above, huh? Sometimes it might feel as life goes on just outside our windows. Is the joy and happiness on the other side of the planet? Or maybe just in the bar next door? We all know deep within that the answer is NO. We have the key to love, passion and joy hidden within us. It takes a big dose of courage to be complete silent and truly be with ourselves to be able to find the door. It is so much more easier to turn the TV on, go shopping or do whatever distract our minds than to reach for the key and unlock our innerselves. We believe that eventually we all reach a point where we are either completely disconnected from our natural state of being that is genuine joy and laughter or we come to realize what truly matters. With that said, keep meditating! 😉

Today´s breakfast was delicious! We would of course never share anything that is not super yummie with you. But still it is worth saying thousands of times that this smoothie was like a piece of heaven. It literally felt like our hearts opened for every sip so we simply gave it the suitable name Heart Opener!

INGREDIENTS (1port)
– 1 handful spinach
– 3 bananas
– 3 dates
– 1-2 cup blackberries
– 1-2 cup cherries
– 1 tbl chia seeds (soaked overnight)
– 1 tsp chlorella
– 1 tsp maca

We donnot really like to write measurement since there should be no right or wrong amounts. Eat until your heart is happy and take what you have at home. With good and living ingredients it will 99 % turn out delicious! But feel free to use our amounts as guidelines.

Mix all the ingredients and voilá! Enjoy it 🙂

Meditaiton vs Excitment?!

62458_442327092518759_1933591770_n 62820_443302285756764_1314741562_n 73954_579886332044817_1419730147_n

Hello beautiful friend,

How are you? Did you have a good start of the week? 🙂 Our fast-speed week continues but it is all fun and we still feel very energized. As we mentioned before, the key to be able to be up and running with a lot of good vibes truly depends on what you put in your month, exercise and your sleep. Equally important for your whole well-being! If you sleep well during the night, eat high nutrition food and move your body – you will reach new levels of energy in a short time. It is all about finding balance and listen to your body.

How is our May Meditation Month going? Do you find time for meditation? Is it getting any easier for you? We have been meditating every day but we have to admit that it has not always been that easy. This last week has been pretty busy and we have been out all day long and many evenings/nights as well. It has been quite tricky to manage to calm down and really find the total peacefulness in such a short time. Specially when we feel so high on life and excited more or less 24/7 😉 We know it is even more important in those moment to really take our time to quiet the mind. So that is our challenge for now. Learn to go from a lot of fun work and crazy ideas running around in the head to complete silence. But we are working on it! Please feel free to share your thoughts with us. We love to hear from YOU.

Right now we are in a coffe place in Jordaan in Amsterdam. Sipping on a carrot/apple/ginger juice and working. Such a wonderful feeling to bike through Amsterdam in the early morning. It is always a special feeling in cities in the morning. The coffe bars are opening up, the smell of fresh coffe (eventhough we donnot drink any atm..it still smells sooo good!), people are biking to work. Simply a whole new day filled with new opportunities!

Before we leave you for now we want to share our breakfast with you. It was delicious and as you might have noticed the last week we are totally hooked on berries. We guess it is a sign that summer times are coming (eventhough it feels like winter outside) so let´s have some Mango Berry Cooler to give ourselves the perfect start for a brand new beautiful day!

INGREDIENTS
tisdag– Spinach
– Bananas
– Dates
– Frozen raspberries
– Frozen mango
– Chlorella
– Maca
– Flaxseed (topping)

Mix all your ingredients. Top it with some flaxseeds. Enjoy!

Today´s powerful words by David Icke:

“The reason most people don´t express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of federal reserve. It´s what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.”

So let´s free ourselves. Today we choose to surrender ourselves with ourselves. Nothing is more important than focus inwardly. What someone else thinks and says about  us, is non of our business. We are perfect in our own existence. We are unique as we are.

Much love,
Julie & Katrin

New week!

972692_10151407142696301_1067189286_n 972773_10151407134536301_1734946089_n 973288_10151407142456301_154435127_n

Happy Monday lovey,

We hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a brand new week to start! As we mentioned in our last post we had a pretty busy week but a very fun and exciting one. Days of intense up and running called for a resting Sunday. A good and long night´s sleep and we are now back on track! We started of this morning with a long and nice power walk here in Amsterdam. We were super lucky since it was pouring down when we woke up but as soon we stepped out of the door it stopped 😉 Could not be a better sign, right?

Today we have two recipes we would love to share with you. Our Sunday breakfast and dinner. Super easy and simply delicious!

This is our Purple Haze smoothie and it is a perfect smoothie! So delicious. It is specially a great green smoothie for beginners since you cannot taste the spinach or chlorella. We promise you could even trick a little kid who refuses to eat greens 😉 It is THAT good!

INGREDIENTS
974957_10151624659806054_2135195240_n– Spinach
– Bananas
– Dates
– Frozen blackberries
– Frozen raspberries
– Chlorella
– Maca
– Flaxseed (topping)

Mix all the ingredients and be ready to thrive!

In the evening we felt for something refreshing yet light since we were so tired and were about to hit the bed soon after. Eating light in the evening before bed helps your body to rest properly. The body does not need to spend the night digesting all food and can instead focus on resting.

So we came up with this super tasty and easy salad that only needs four ingredients.

975422_10151624659601054_1083541538_n

INGREDIENTS
– Cherry tomatoes
– Mushrooms
– Parsley
– Juice from 1 lemon

Chop your tomatoes and mushrooms and put them in a bowl. Squeeze the juice out of your lemon. Chop some parsley and add it to your juice. If you feel for garlic that would be delicious as well. Pour it over your veggies and let it sit for some minutes at least. The longer the better. Voilá!

Today´s powerful words by Eckhart Tolle:

“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.” 

Much love,
Julie & Katrin

Happy Shining Sunday

Hello precious,

What a beautiful sunny weekend Amsterdam has given us. We appreciate it with our full hearts and have tried to spend as much time as possible outside. Re-charging our Vitamin D levels in our bodies! 😉 We are so happy to hear some of you want to join us on May Meditation MonthRemember that it is never too late to start. There is always time to start to meditate and connect with our inner selves. If you have started practicing, how is it going? If you have any thoughts, ideas, tricks or anything you want to share with us and our friends. Please do so! We have so far meditated every day. Some days for 5-10 min but this morning we started the day with 20 min. Oooh, such a nice feeling! We are still in the beginning of our meditation practice and very so often our thoughts wander away. Therefore, it is even more important to keep practicing. Hopefully within a short time we will be able to quite our minds more and more. In a couple of days we will write a longer post about our thoughts about this. We will also link some guided meditation videos that we have found to be useful! But until then.. keep practicing 😉

Yesterday we met up with a close friend out in Vondelpark in Amsterdam. Perfect weather to enjoy some nice white wine in the sun! Later on we went to the vegetarian (and vegan friendly) restaurnat Golden Temple and enjoyed a Raw Vegan delicious salad. Perfect Raw Crackers made out of different seeds, sun dried tomatoes and herbs. Something we have to try to make ourselves! Later in the evening we craved some dessert so we made a massive portion of Raw Vegan Ice cream. So delicious and super easy to make. This time we made three different flavours; blueberry, raspberries and carob! Have a look at the ingredients if you want to make some vibrant and healthy ice cream to yourself, your family and friends. 🙂

– Frozen bananas

– Dates

Raspberry

Today´s powerful words by the one and only Eckhart Tolle:

“Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of
ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.” 

Love,
Julie & Katrin

Selfishness

34998_451565354928266_627709005_n

Good morning beauty,

How are you today? Are you ready to set the love tune for today? 😉 We sure are! We adore these words in the pic above. The way to go – healthy egoism. But first we have to distinguish selfishness from what others might think selfishness is. We think that all of us simply have to be selfish. Every single one of us – and more should join to the crowd of selfish people! 😉 Let us explain what we mean with selfishness. It is simply when we decide to care about our own well-being, our own emotions and do exactly what makes us feel good. Most important, with no guilt! This world needs people that are feeling good and are thriving. When you are happy and filled with love – you can with no problem give from your abundance. You can help someone else to rise to your frequency. When you are feeling good, you automatically do good things. Even without thinking about it. It comes so naturally. On the other side, if you feel low.. how on this earth would you be able to help someone else to feel good? Two people feeling bad cannot make each other feel good, they will most likely drain each other. We always make sure to take our time to tune in to our well-being and from here act. We are million times more effective when we are in alignment and not talking about the way you interact with everyone/everything in your sourronding. So take your time and do excactly what pleases you – and we promise everything will fall in to place.

Something that makes us feel happy and vibrant, and definitely sets the love tune at our place is to enjoy a big green smoothie in the morning. We have been sharing many variations with you and we have to admit that we simply cannot have enough! It is one of the best habits we have created in our new lives we are living. We are meant to feel good – and this Green Mangoliciousness smoothie is definitely a helping hand to make you thrive!

1365967388758INGREDIENTS
– Spinach
– Bananas
– Mangos
– Chlorella
– Maca
– Hemp protein

Mix it all in your blender. Voilá!

Before we let you go for now we want to share today´s powerful words with you regarding self love. Remember you are perfect as you are, you are amazing in your own being and nothing needs to be changed. Let go of everything that does not serve you and be who you are meant to be. Today´s words come from C. JoyBell C.

“The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself.What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who’s not full of hate, who’s able to smile and be carefree. So that’s who I have to be.” 

Love,
Julie & Katrin

Green Happiness in a Smoothie

544644_367205113388166_2010217814_nGood morning sweetheart,

Today is a happy day. We hope you agree with us. You donnot need to have any specific reasons for being happy. It is a state of mind and being happy with no reasons is the best. That is actually how it always should be. To be able to appreciate everything as the perfect gift. Of course there are things that can make you feel even better and enhance your well-being. For us it is usually the small things in life that counts. One of those happy moments is to indulge in a green smoothie in the morning. It makes us feel vibrant and alive, setting the perfect tune for a brand new day. Our Green Happiness Smoothie creation is a must try and you are going to be surprised for the good feelings that will raise in your body immediately.1365496584315INGREDIENTS
– Spinach
– Bananas
– Kiwi
– Chlorella
– Ice (optional)

Mix all the ingredients in your blender. We added some ice cubes to cool it a little and get a creamer texture. You can of course also use frozen bananas. One Little tip when using spinach and other greens in your smoothie is to place the greens at the bottom. This will break down the greens much faster and you avoid possible chunks of greens. We hope you enjoy, it is super delicious! 🙂

Today´s powerful words come from the book “The monk who sold his Ferrari”:

“Find out what you truly love to do and then direct all of your energy towards doing it. If you study the happiest, healthiest, most satisfied people of our world, you will see that each and every one of them has found their passion in life, and then spent their days pursuing it. This calling is almost always one that, in some ways serves the others. Once you are concentrating your mind power and energy on a pursuit that you love, abundance flows into your life, and all your desires are fulfilled with ease and grace.”

Stay focused. Love whatever  you are doing. Breathe your passion!

Love,
Julie & Katrin

The Teaching of Buddha
