Health Conscious Recipes That Show Flavor Can Still Be Your Friend

There are plenty of healthy food recipes that can be found online. Whether you are a health conscious person, trying to recover from a disease, building muscle or trying to lose weight, a good recipe will always come to your help. There are some tested ways to achieve your health goals with different diet plans and foods made from quality ingredients. Here are examples of such recipes:



Ingredients: 1/2 zested lemon; 1 cup quinoa; 2 cups of low-fat milk; 1 pinch salt; 1 cup of blueberries; 2 teaspoons of flax seeds; 3 tablespoons of maple syrup;

Preparation: The quinoa is rinsed with a strainer under cold water until the water is clear. The milk is heated on medium until warm. The quinoa and salt are stirred in the milk. The mix is simmered until the liquid is absorbed. After taking the saucepan away from the heat, maple syrup and lemon zest are added. Blueberries are sprinkled over it. Each bowl is topped off with flax seed and ready to eat.


Ingredients: 2/3 cups of orange juice; 2 cups of sliced strawberries; 1/3 cups of lemon juice; 3 sliced kiwis; 1/3 cups of brown sugar; 3 sliced bananas; 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest; 2 peeled oranges; 1/2 teaspoons of grated lemon zest; 1 cup of seedless grapes; 1 teaspoon vanilla; 2 cups of blueberries; 2 cups of cubed pineapple;

Preparation: The orange juice, brown sugar, lemon juice, orange zest and lemon zest boil over medium heat and simmer until they thicken. When removed from the pan, the vanilla extract is added. Layer the fruits in a large bowl. The cooled sauce is poured over the fruits, and the whole salad is cooled before serving.



Ingredients: 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil; 1 teaspoon grounded black pepper; 1 pound ground turkey (optional); 2 can of canned tomatoes with juice; 1 chopped onion; 1 cup corn; 2 green bell peppers; 1 can blc beans; 5 crrots; 1 can garbanzo beans; 1 tablespoon chilli; 1 1/2 cups broth; 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin;

Preparation: If having the turkey, heat the turkey in a saucepan with oil for 10 minutes. When the meat is no longer pink, remove the turkey and leave the oil in the pan. Put the onion, green peppers, and carrots in the saucepan and stir them inside for 10 minutes. Put in the cumin, black pepper, diced tomatoes, corn, beans, garbanzo beans and broth. Boil the concoction. Place a cup and half of the chili mixture in a food processer for 1 minute until it is smooth. Pour it back in the pan and leave until it is thick. Add the turkey and bring the pan to simmer on medium-low.



Ingredients: 2 strips of bacon; 1/4 cups chopped onion; 1 egg; 1/2 cup mayonnaise; 2 teaspoons mustard; 1/2 teaspoon sugar; 1/2 zested lemon; 1 can of wild salmon; 1 baked russet potato (peeled and fluffed); 1/4 cup bread crumbs; 2 tablespoons parmesan; ground black pepper; 1/2 cup oil;

Heat a tablespoon of bacon fat in a pan on low heat. Add onions and cook them until they soften. Mix the bacon, onion, mayonnaise, mustard, egg, sugar and lemon zest in the bowl. Add the salmon and the potato. Make the mixture into 12 patties. In a dish, mix the bread crumbs, parmesan and pepper. Coat the patties in this mixture. Heat 1/4 cup of the oil in a large pan on medium heat, and cook the patties until they are golden. Add more oil, if necessary, during the cooking.

Food Meal Services

While there are plenty of recipes on internet and in books that are suited for everyone's diet and image goals, it can take up a lot of time to go through the recipes, buy the groceries and prepare the meals. Most people want to eat healthy but are very busy in their lives to save time for preparing the meals they love. A lack of time should not have to be in the way of a healthy lifestyle. That is why there are food meal services that deliver food straight to your home. It saves time and worry about what to eat.

The Nutrisystem for men meal services deliver the food straight to your door. It is a 28-day program that delivers packaged foods for the whole day to you. There are various options to choose from. The system is made to help you lose weight without counting calories as the Nutrisystem does it all for you. 

In the end, I'd like to leave you a picture of healthy diet pyramid, that you should take into consideration, when doing your weekly food planning!

BEEMOM Silicone Breast Pump Review & Will Breast Size Affect Milk Production?

Hello mommas!

Today's post is all mommy related; I'm going to share with you one of my newborn baby essentials (essentials for all moms who are breastfeeding)!

As I've mentioned before, I'm thinking of doing a list of my newborn baby's essentials (I just need to find a bit of time, to talk to you about the products that were very useful to me & my baby in the first months of his life). 

Until then, I'm going to name one: Breast pump!
I didn't get a breast pump whilst I was still pregnant (you know how you usually buy things for the baby before you give birth, just to be prepared), because I didn't think I would need it.
As a first time mom, I really didn't know what to expect when it comes to breastfeeding, and I didn't want to spend money on things that weren't really necessary (you know how these days, shops tend to sell you millions of things that they claim are must haves for a newborn baby, when, truth to be told, newborn baby doesn't really need that much!).

But, when I gave birth, and started my breastfeeding journey, I realized that breast pump is going to be one of those products that I need to have!
I have inverted nipples and my baby wasn't able to latch (you can hear more about my story, and how I was able to transfer from mostly formula, to exclusively breastfeeding here), so I sent my hubby to get me one of those manual breast pumps, which turned out to be of a great help!

Breast pumps are also helpful if you have too much milk, and you want to express and store it in the fridge/ freezer for later, or if you have to go away for a couple of hours and you want to leave the task of feeding your baby to your partner, or other family members.
It's always good to look for an easy to use and clean, and portable and convenient breast pump.

Recently, I got in touch with and was able to test their silicone breast pump that is made of 100% food grade silicone and has 4 ounces/ 100 ml milk collection capacity.
It is designed to accomodate different breast sizes, and it works based on natural suction ability.
 It's also convenient to use when you're breastfeeding your baby, by attaching it to your other breast, you can easily collect all the milk let down, that would usually go to waste.

Beemom breast pump is available through their website, or through Amazon, currently on promotion for £ 9.99

How can you benefit from owning your very own Manual Breast Pump? 10 MAIN reasons... 

1. Provide breast milk for your little one for longer making sure he grows HEALTHY, STRONG and PROTECTED against illness and infections. 
2. Allow your baby to have breast milk even when you're not around. 
3. SAVE HUNDREDS of euro on formula. 
4. Allow dad or other family members to feed the baby.
5. Need to return to work. 
6. Have an emergency supply.
7. Relieve pain from engorgement. 
8. Maintain your milk supply. 
9. Alternate between breast and bottle.
10. Take your Breast Pump anywhere. It´s small and portable allowing you to take it to work and anywhere you go. 

But is more than just a webstore that sells silicine breast pumps, and here is a little intro about them & their work:

"BeeMom is a new mom brand that has gone beyond only delivering products for new moms.
We provide Moms with relevant information around breastfeeding, pregnancy, parenting, maternity and newborn babies. We ultimately want to help new moms grow their knowledge regarding maternity and also bring to market products and services that our community needs and love..."

Premium Silicone Manual Breastpump | Breast Milk Pump 

• Designed to MIMIC baby´s sucking creating a natural and more comfortable experience. 
• A perfect solution for moms that don´t want to deprive their little ones of their breast milk, but need to work or are on the go. 
• More affordable, smaller, lighter and quieter than electric breast pumps and often quicker too. 
• Really Easy to Clean
• Collect "let-down" / breast milk leaks. 
• No motor noise to disturb the baby. 
• No need for electricity allowing you to pump anywhere at any time.
• You CONTROL the suction yourself making sure the pump doesn´t hurt or cause you any pain. 
• Accommodates different breast sizes. 

I immediately knew I wanted to collaborate with them to spread the word about their product and their community, as I know I got most of the information I needed to successfully breastfeed my child, through the right internet sources.
Unfortunately, hospital staff was "too busy" to give me needed support when it came to my inverted nipples "problem", and my Mom and my Grandmother believed that, because of my small breasts, I wouldn't be able to produce enough milk to provide for my baby's food needs.
I also grew up with this belief, but, after I read informative articles about breastfeeding, I realized this was a big misconception, and that, breast size really doesn't have anything to do with milk production. I now know what, with the right support, majority of women can provide exclusively for their baby's food needs. Only a small percentage isn't able to breastfeed and mostly it's because some sort of anomaly or illness.

I hope this post was helpful to all of you, breastfeeding mommas, and all mommas to be!

Product Of The Month: Clinique Beauty Sleeping Mask

Hello beauties!
In this post, I'd like to talk to you about the product I've been loving this month and it's not a recent purchase, but I found myself using it most often in this period of time.
I'm talking about Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. 

It's one of those popular beauty sleeping masks, that you leave on your face overnight, whilst they do their own little miracle on your face.
When I first purchased this mask (at my local Sephora), I used it once or twice a week (mostly when I felt my skin needed some extra love).
In this period of time, I've been reaching for it much more often. I'm using it as a part of my regular night time skincare routine, every night, before going to sleep, instead of my night time cream.
My skin is quite dry in this period of time (as we're heading towards winter, plus, I'm still breastfeeding, which can also dry out the skin), and I feel that this overnight beauty treatment is just what my skin needs.
It's very moisturizing but non greasy, so it's suitable for all skin types, and if your skin is extra dry (such as mine), you can even use it every night! It absorbs really quickly and it leaves my skin soft and plump. I can feel it's very gentle product for my skin and overall my skin loves it! Lately, I've been adding a few drops of vitamin E to this mask, to make this nourishing treatment even more intense and anti-aging.

I can add that, I generally am a fan of Clinique products, especially the moisture surge line, agrees with my skin's needs. This product is allergy tested and 100% fragrance free, so it's recommended even for sensitive skin types.
I really recommend you to try out this product!
Let me know have you already tried this beauty sleeping mask by Clinique, or any other similar product from different brand?
I also love the Shiseido and Yves Rocher overnight beauty treatments, so if you like, I can talk to you about these products next!

xoxo, from Italy,

We took these few ootd shots past month, when we were staying in Croatia. The weather was warm, sunny and just beautiful and we were lucky to have been able to go often for a long walks by the sea.

Outfit je udoban, pomalo casual, ali i chic, bas onako po mom gustu! :-)

My pregnancy story & parenting

Hi mammas!

The ones of you who follow my blog for longer period of time, will know that I gave birth in January this year and that my little son is now almost 10 months old!
Time truly flies by so quickly!

Looking back at my pregnancy, and the past (almost) 10 months spent with my son, it truly was and is the best time of my life! I feel like a completely different person after giving birth, never happier, never more at peace with myself.
If there was a way to go back in time when I was pregnant, and leave myself a message, it would be to just relax and enjoy the most special moments of my life. Growing a little human, feeling him progressing day by day inside of your truly is something magical.

I was very anxious and scared about how everything would turn out: I was so worried that something goes wrong during my pregnancy, and was also overwhelmed with fear of childbirth and having to go to the hospital. Also, every single exam and blood draw that I needed to take, was making me faint a little!

I consider myself so lucky that I actually had a beautiful, completely natural childbirth. It was all I ever wanted (I refused any thought of getting an epidural and was worried if something goes wrong I'd have to undergo the cesarian section; those two possibilities were freaking me out throughout my entire pregnancy!).

I documented all my fears and my entire pregnancy and "becoming a mum" journey, very openly and honestly, in my pregnancy vlogs and videos. I'm very glad that I still receive messages of mums and mums to be, telling me how they find my vlogs helpful with their own journey.

One thing that made my whole journey easier was the fact that I told to myself to live it day by day. If today everything was fine with my pregnancy, there was no reason for me to worry about tomorrow, but there was every reason to fully enjoy today. This was my guideline that helped me a lot during the time I felt extra anxious about the outcome of this new life's "adventure".

I also find helpful websites dedicated to new Mums and blogs where Mums are sharing their tips and experiences. Don't read the horror stories, but concentrate on positive messages and constructive tips!

After I gave birth, I looked up on-line for different topics regarding my child's development. It's hard when it's only you and your hubby and no one else to turn to for an experienced advice (my Mum lives in another country!).

Checkpregnancy is one of those helpful spots for all the new Mums and the ones looking for advices on different topics, regarding babies, getting pregnant, parenting, reviews on different products, and women's health.
Women's health is definitely crucial for healthy pregnancy and safe childbirth.
Websites that offer advices and tips on many different aspects of women's and Mum's life, are always gladly recommended by me.

During your baby's development, you'll come across different topics that will be of your interest, from swaddling (have you ever tried that with your baby? My son was swaddled only in the hospital, right after he was born, by the hospital nurses, but we never tried it at home!)
If you're interested to find out more about swaddling, you can read more here!

Also, when my son was around 4-5 months old and he started to be more active in terms that he could move more, roll from one side to another and trying to crawl, I realized that I need to get him a box...with every stage of his development, other needs would come up. I was learning, and still am, day by day.

I would always do a little internet research and comparison by checking other Mum's reviews, for example, I'd look up the top pack n play 2017 when we were buying his first box.
We opted for a sleep n play that's easily transported because we needed something that is easy to pack for when we travel to Croatia.
Nowdays, my son is excercising his first steps, so we upgraded to a much bigger box, where our entire family fits in :-)) so he has so much space to play!

I hope I can keep bringing you more recommendations when it comes to all these Mum related topics!

If you have any questions you'd like to ask me, feel free to leave them in your comments!
