Cook once, eat twice! The best tip for busy people!

Tired of cooking? Does it take too much of your energy coming back home every day thinking what to eat? Do you think you have better things to do rather than cooking but you still want to eat well? Well, I have a solution for you (at least for half of your days): “cook once, eat twice, three times…” How does it sound?

Since I started living by myself I did not really miss my mum or her food, what I missed the most the fact that there was always great food on the table for me! Just like that! -Don’t take me wrong though, I also missed my mum, but… you know what I mean… hihi-

I wonder how she did it, cooking for three & working full time! Crazy huh! Well, I now know her trick… Recycling food! (But this is going to be for another post). What I want to explain today is as simple as cooking double (or triple, or…) you might just spend a couple more minutes in the kitchen and you can save up to one hour! Isn’t it fantastic? I think so… :)

The best is when you don’t even have to warm up you food the day after, therefore salads are perfect! (Don’t put any seasoning though if you want it to live longer, hihi). During winter time, I’d recommend all kind of soups. I normally prepare a large pot and freeze the soup in individual portions I can consume during the whole winter! -That really saves me a lot of time-

What’s your favorite tip to save time in the kitchen??

Big hug and much love,

Are you loving yourself up??

I know I do my best to treat others the way I want them to treat me, but, am I treating myself how I would like to be treated?? Good question, right… hahaha Well, the answer is not always… :( -shame on me!-

We are not used to think of ourselves, love us or give us what we really deserve: beautiful words, good food, nice company, ME-time, relax…

So, what’s your plan to love yourself up? I’m giving me the best food I can, I want my body to be happy and be able to follow me till the end of the day!

What about you?

Big hug and lost of love,

A few weeks ago I posted a small schema with the key elements for a healthy living and then I gave some good reasons why you might want to get started to exercise a bit everyday.

After walking, one of the best activities you can do is cycling. So, step number one, get you a bike (if you don’t have one) or take out from the basement! ;-)  If your city is bike friendly there is no excuse to get started (at least for small errands). If it’s not the case, maybe you want to start using it during the weekends for small trips around the city ;-)

Mine is not a good excuse, as soon as you will start riding your bike you will start saving on fuel, parking lots or public transportation! Plus there are many places where you can find good deals or even second-hand bikes! 

As you can see besides the physical activity you will be doing while saving some money, biking has a number of other benefits, which one is your favourite?? Mine are that it is cheaper than a car, faster than walking and great for the environment!

Think about it! ;-)

Big hug and lots of love,
