It’s finally happening!

This image spread like fire yesterday on Facebook. It was long overdue, but better late than never, right? This should be food for thought for all the parents out there thinking that one – two trips to McDonald’s a month can’t harm their children. Actually, it should be a warning for all people out there who eat there out of habit, because it’s cheap or because they didn’t have time to pack a sandwich and these kind of places are the only alternative when hunger strikes.

The Festival of Life

Hello all good people out there! It’s been a long time since my last post. Between work, family and my son’s 2nd birthday party, I haven’t had a chance to write much. I’ve got many things I want to blog about, so I’ll dive right in with first topic:

On September 24 I went to a vegan fair, Festival of Life, held in London each year, in August and September. I was so excited to finally having a chance to experience live such an event and finding out more about trends in veganism, organic products, raw foods and nutrition. The description certainly looked very appealing: eco-living, arts and crafts, juice bars, kids space, raw food demos, nutrition, permaculture, activism, trance dance, meditation, yoga, healing, singing, live music, DJs, drumming, conscious partying.

Ways of Staying Fit

As you know, we’ve recently had some public unrest in London – a lot of stealing, damaged property and many buildings set ablaze. One of the things the rioters really had an issue with was my local Nuffield fitness centre, down in Norbury. I am still trying to think what was it so “appalling” about a place where people of all colours and nations go to work out, swim and relief their daily stress levels. Obviously something in this equation stirred them up and they just decided to burn the damn place down.

Something Tasty that Made My Lunch

As you may know already, I am a big fan of eating healthy. God knows I have my bad days, when nothing can stand between me and a piece of dark, rich chocolate…but for the rest of the time, I am doing my best to be decent with myself and eat as much raw foods as possible. Nowadays, I am more often than not fighting tooth and nail just to see my son taste some fresh fruits & veggies. So far, I am failing miserably. And frankly, I feel I am running out of ideas.

“Eat, Pray Love”, God, Christianity and Yoga

A few good months ago I started reading “Eat, Pray, Love”. I’ve literally just finished it, while also reading a few more novels and non-fiction books in between. The reason why it took me so long is because I loved it too much. I’ve enjoyed “living” in Gilbert’s vivid world and I was reluctant to see the story end. So I took my time and enjoyed her funny, witty, so down-to-earth and genuine writing. I feel like I love this woman without ever having met her.

Raw Food Challenge – Day 1

I must admit, along with the excitement and anticipation, I was kind of dreading this first day. I was almost looking for a way out because of the fear of not making it and being disappointed. But here I am. It’s 9.45pm and still raw.
