SPICE UP YOUR FALL

I didn't have time to make my green smoothies twice this week and boy what a difference in energy level. Even it doesn't fill my stomach one bit it sure gives me energy for the day. So from now on, no matter how early I gotta get up I should make sure to make time for smoothie. Yes, even those Mondays when I have to get up at 4.30am and it's dark and cold... 
Our pepper plant is growing wild and we froze some of the peppers, because we can't eat them all.  I made (my own variation) of Korean kimchi stew and added some of the pepper to it to give it a nice kick. I love spicy veggie stews during the fall and winter. Great comfort food.
As the weather gets colder and drier it's time to concentrate on moisturizing. I found this Avalon Organics Tea Tree (my fave) conditioner at Ricky's and it's doing it's job. I massage it all over my scalp and hair and let it condition for about 10 minutes. For body, 100% raw organic coconut oil.
This soap should have 18 different uses. But I only need it for one thing. I stopped using shower gels while ago and keep testing different kind of soap bars. There's so many interesting raw, organic soaps out there and I'm on a mission to find the best one. Raw African shea butter soap has so far been my favorite.

  1. Ihania nämä sun ekopostaukset! Oon täysin hurahtanut superfoodeihin ja luomuun ja erityisesti luomukookosöljyyn. Iherb.com on ykkönen suomalaisille tilauspaikkana joten kiva lukea sun suosimista tuotteista ja kokeilla kaikkea kivaa uutta.

    Lisäksi peukut pystyyn vihersmoothieille. Oletko kokeillut salaattien soseuttamista? Tykkään tosi paljon esim. pinaatin ja tammenlehväsalaatin sekoittamisesta smoothieen. Nam!

  8. I have some of that soap and it supposedly can clean anything. I have only tried it on me though. It should work well for making your own household cleaners.

  9. Kertoisitko hyvän green smoothie-reseptin? Toki löytyy Googlella, mutta olisi kiva tietää joku hyvä (mieluiten ilman selleriä...). Kiitos!

  10. Gloria,

    tassa on yksi parhaimman makuisista vihreista smoothieista jota olen koskaan maistanut. Tama on Sarma Melngailiksen resepti.

    Green smoothie

    1/2 ruby grapefruit
    4 pieces of frozen pineapple
    1 cucumber
    1 bunch cilantro
    1 bunch spinach
    1/4 lime
    2 dates
    Dash of vanilla
    Dash of cinnamon
    Ice cubes

    Itsekaan en ole sellerin ystava, mutta jotenkin se mehuissa menee kaiken muun seassa,

  11. Kiitos, kokeilen heti kun saan puuttuvat ainekset hankittua!
    Onko tämä siis mielestäsi energisoiva eli parhaimmillaan esim aamiaisjuomana?
