After feeling a bit blue and cranky last week, I decided to do something to make myself feel good so I busted out my juicer that has been boxed away for over a year! I used to juice a lot more, but then found it costly and also rather cumbersome. But there’s nothing quite like guzzling freshly squeezed fruit and veggie juice. I can feel my whole body come alive and the increased energy is noticeable and immediate. So I’m trying to bring it back into my life, even if it’s just once or twice a week. The first juice is a mix of carrot, cucumber, pear, celery, and ginger. The second is a mix of apple, celery, romaine lettuce, chicory, lemon, and ginger. Nutrients, yeahh!
I’ve also been trying to eat more fresh salads lately. Here’s a slaw salad for lunch. Included cabbage, carrot, broccoli, corn, and sliced almonds. Dressing: sesame oil, brown rice vinegar, sea salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes.
And I recently added these chocolate-orange biscotti with almond meal to the bakeshop site. It’s been ages since I made biscotti and I forgot how addicting they are. They are the perfect excuse to take a coffee break~ not that I need an excuse to drink more coffee….
And here’s something super exciting that happened! I’m in this month’s Korean Vogue Girl magazine!!! I have yet to actually see the magazine in print… my friend snapped this photo and sent it to me. I’m gonna head to the bookstore this weekend though and snag a copy for myself! :) I can’t believe I get these kinds of opportunities, especially because I feel like my life is pretty boring these days…. so I’m just really grateful that people are interested and want to read about meh. So THANK YOU~!!! xoxo
