Reviving Green Food You Can Prepare in Minutes (Recipes plus The FREE Cleanse + Restore Guide)



I'm always on the run. And sometimes days feel never-ending. Multitasking is incorporate it in me! Trying to do more than one thing at a time without even realizing it became a usual habit after Lia was born. It was challenging to adjust at first, but once I've set my mind on how to do it… well, let me tell you that I can’t stop multitasking. At one point, you can say that this multitasking thing is the best. I mean I can do this and that and the other in just hours, right?! But at times it can leave me physically and emotionally exhausted. Really. Over and over again I found myself looking for that extra time I need to recover myself. But it frequently feels impossible to do so.


My mother is always telling me; take one day at a time, forget about everything and anything for a while.Take a nap even if you only have ten minutes to spare. And yes, mom is right, I do need that nap.

Finding the time to nurture ourselves should be an everyday thing. Isn’t it?!

On the other hand, time goes so fast nowadays that having some time off to dedicate to ourselves often seems like a luxury instead of necessityHow is that possible?... 


I mean, dedicating ourselves some time to take a nap, or hydrate our bodies (by drinking the quantity of water our body needs), going for a walk or preparing and giving our bodies a good bowl of homemade food, is something that 'we need' to keep going. And it shouldn't be postpone.  

Simply because ‘we humans' need those basic things in life to feel restored, nourished, energized and happier. But I suppose we all tend to forget this about ourselves sometimes. And with all the challenges one can have ‘to find time,’ to feed our bodies with all those simple things, it always feels amazing once going back to the basics of life. And yes, from time to time we need to stop. And give our bodies a natural cleanse and a rest to feel restore and get that extra boost of energy. And believe me, I’m looking forward to taking that nap this weekend.


I invite you to stop for a while and give yourself some nourishment. Cleanse and restore your body, mind, and spirit. You can start by preparing simple meals, take the time to rest, relax and reconnect with yourself the upcoming days.
