Organic Lemon Rice

Hi everyone,

Today I would like to share with you my new recipe that is so yummy and healthy). This organic lemon rice is super easy to make and the lost of ingredients won’t break your pocket either. It’s suitable for vegans, vegetarians and I also added options for those who eat meat.

For 2 people:

Ingredients:

Half glass of brown rice

Half of onion

Olive oil

2 sticks of celery

1 small pack of ready baby corn 🌽

Half of lemon

2 cm of ginger

1 avocado

Half of glass of mixed seeds

Cheese (optional for non vegans only)

Chicken (for non vegetarians)

Method:

1. Poor olive oil to the pan, while it’s warming up, peel and chop onion into small pieces. Add it to the pan.

2. Cut celery into small pieces, and cut in half baby corn. Add it to the pan.

3. Squeeze half of lemon juice into the pan. Stir vegetables till they are ready (about 3 min).

4. Cut ginger into very small pieces and add to the rest. Put some salt if you wish and keep stirring for another min.

5. If you are non vegan or non vegetarian, this is the step, when you can add either cheese to these vegetables, either chicken( precooked earlier).

6. Once vegetables now are ready, serve then immediately. Cut avocado in half, add to the dish. Take seeds and spread them on top. Now, your lunch/dinner is ready.

Hope you enjoy. Please let me know if you liked the recipe)). 😊

Finding your passions

Most of us feel like we want something more of life, that our hearts are craving for something or simply that something important is missing.. it’s so easy to ignore those signs, those voices inside of our head. But once you start paying attention, you might actually find out what it is.

I was many years in a relationship with someone, who not only wouldn’t encourage my true passions, but also tried to suppress them, saying that I need to grew up and be realistic. Fine, he probably didn’t understand quite what is his passion is. But in the end, I have realised, I was trapped, trapped in my own bubble: work, unhealthy relationship, toxic friendships, and fear, fear to be myself…

What I have learned since is that no matter where you are, no matter who is next to you, it is vital, vital for your physical and emotional health to embrace those passions. It’s either now, or never! I know it sounds hursh, but trust me, time and health are the most precious things you have in this world; things you can never buy.

So, think about it, what is stopping you right now?

I talked to one of my friends recently. She is a mom of two, working full time, but desperately wants to lose weight. So we figured out that the best way she can get fit without spending too much money and time is to run from work to home (at least half of the way). So if you want , really want something, you will find opportunity, if you don’t, you will find an excuse, that is the truth. So, stop feeling sad or sorry for yourself, stop focusing on why you can’t make your dreams come true and look and seek all the opportunities that are available today.

I left unhealthy relationship,I started to chase my own dreams, and now, I am happier then ever before. Trust me, I had times, when I felt like there is no way, I will ever finish my degree (as I was working full time), or that I will lose weight ( cause I love take away so much), or put myself out there on social media ( cause I was too shy). The thing is.. we live only once, so you have to take all the opportunities and/or create those opportunities for yourself and go and take what you are dreaming about. Actually it’s quite simple. Don’t listen to people who are not successful, and with all my respect for people, who gave up on their dreams, I genuinely think that you loose ONLY when you STOP TRYING! So start today, keep going, plan ahead, and keep looking for new ways, new opportunities and never ever give up! So many people made it, so you can! Believe in yourself and love yourself!

Lots of love,

Katia

Blue January anyone?

If someone is having a blue January…

I am not surprised, we all try to make right decisions and move on with our life’s once the New Year approaches.

Letting go is one of the best feelings in the world! You are free and you can take each breath without that heavy feeling in your chest…

Trying to control your life is a good thing but trying to control how others perceive you often is a waste of time. So how do you go about it, how do you actually let go? Well first and most important have a faith in yourself, know that your star will lead you exactly where you have to be! Everything happen for a reason and the reason you are feeling low is probably the way life telling you it is enough! Give yourself a break! Embrace your passion! Look at the bigger picture! No need to resist when you know you have tried everything ; so just wait, and trust me,

something amazing things will happen!

Once you put down this burden of your shoulders you will get inspired, you will find your inner piece and everything you want will come to you, in a different but much more wonderful way than you ever imagined! Stay calm and smile, cause your smile is beautiful! Your smile is lighting up the day of people around you, so don’t be greedy)) give your happy smile to your friends, family, even strangers! This positive vibe will come back to you multiplied and you will see results sooner than you think;))! Be happy and trust your destiny! Work hard for what you want but let go to what is not making you happy… It all will come into place)) and soon ❀️❀️😘

P.s.: if my post didn’t help, hope at least this silly photo of me will make you smile)

Happy New 2018! Don’t give up! Keep going πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Vegan cheese vice normal cheese

More and more people are trying to swap animal products for vegan but to tell tee truth, after a while, I came to the conclusion that choosing vegan option is not necessary means making healthier choice.

If you look at the list of ingredients of vegan cheese, you will see, they use all oil which is really bad fir you and fir out environment ( I will write a separate blog about it). They use soya; did you know if soya used isn’t organic it most of the time is genetically modified?! I am personally not consuming GMO products..

Normal cheese made of simply cows milk and that’s all…

So, non-organic milk is not good for you… but would you rather opt for GMO soya?

So, after trying few different brands of vegan cheese, I was really disappointed with the taste.. additionally to the list of ingredients.

So I decided that I either will opt out completely from eating cheese or keep using occasionally normal cheese.

Vegan option not always means healthier or more caring for environment option.

Please guys, always ALWAYS read carefully the label and list of ingredients.

What are your thought are here guys..?

Knock knock… no answer?!

Some people say if you keep knocking the door and no one opens, then walk away because it means it simply not meant to be!

Well let me disagree here and say:” if no one answer the door but you really need to get in the house, find another entrance or smash that window and bloody get in! It is your life, don’t be scared to break the rules as long as you do no harm to others. When it comes to your dream, when is something that you really really want, don’t give up! Simply find another way around! Going with a flow is rarely brings those results you are looking for, but going against the flow, builds character, makes you wiser and stronger, these moments, phases they make you grow. I have learned from experience that giving up has never made happy anyone but only brought some kind of addiction, that we use as a shelter from our pain and disappointment that we didn’t get what we want. Some people eat the pain away( obesity problem), some people drink it away, some work it away (workaholics) and so on.

Of course I am not saying if you are working hard, you are running away from your disappointment, no. What I mean is that some people completely shut all other areas of their life( that probably didn’t work out as they desired) and put 100 percent of their time into work. Life is about balance, so it is essential for us as humans to fulfil all these areas.

So, as I mentioned in one of my previous posts on insta, don’t listen to those who put you down and … if you knocked and knocked and no one answers that door … SO go and find another entrance; there is always a solution πŸ’ͺ. Don’t leave it all to your destiny, go against the flow as long as you want something really badly.

Hope this post will change the way you think guys, cause this way of thinking did truly worked for many people I know including myself 😊. Please leave your comments below)

Overeating

Does anyone struggle to quit bad habits?Let’s talk about it…


Whether it is smoking or alcohol or simply addiction to ordering take away, all of these are harmful in one way or another. We know it is bad for us, and yet we keep doing it… lighting another cigarette, opening another bottle of wine, avoiding cooking etc 

Why do we do it? Why we constantly and mindfully keep hurting ourselves?! 
Many psychologists say that this is the way to escape from a reality, humans are part of the nature, so our animal instinct is striving to pursue us to get a quick fix.

About two years ago, I was 10 kg more! I used to cook a lot, and order lots of take away. I used to eat out my unhappiness and my problems, food was the main pleasure I would treat myself to at the end of the day. Overeating became a norm. My personal life was stressful, so after analysing what is happening, I could clearly see that I was unconsciously eating my emotional pain away…so after a while I realised that either I change this habit, either I will never get happy in a long term. Short fix were no longer an option, I had to fix not the symptom but the REAL CAUSE!

So now looking back, I can see that it was not easy journey but once you start realising that you deserve better, that you ACTUALLY can build a better life.. you will stop focusing on a quick fix and start working on the real solution-taking care of yourself and getting rid of the negativity in your life!

I still fighting my demons and yes, I still having bad habits but overeating is no longer one of them πŸ™! 


I would like to encourage you to stop for a min and think… why are you still overeating.. what is behind this habit… what is missing in your life.. or perhaps what is a way too overwhelming in your life?
