Veggies noodles

Hello,
My friend told me about this little tool he got at Bartells for 14,99 that makes veggies noodles. I got very excited about and ran to the store to buy one for myself. It is very easy to use i just put zucchini and yellow squash inside twist around and voila it makes delicious noodles.

I tried with carrots also and worked great. I made the veggies noodles and some homemade tomato sauce with some grilled chicken and lunch was ready.

Amazing thing about it is that taste almost like noodles but it isn’t and also is very healthy. If you don’t have it and still wants to have veggies noodle you can use a potato peel thing. I used before. Or cut into little pieces.

You can also use it on cucumber to make salads. Yummy and healthy. Eat pasta without feeling guilty.

Hello,

This week I am dedicating my post to my best friend ever Leila. She is being my best friend for so long that I feel like she knows me better than I do. We haven’t seen each other since 2008 but our friendship continues the same.

This is my best friend, me and our friend. This picture is from 2007 I believe.

This Sunday she told me, that she is having some troubles losing weight. She got some extra pounds over those 5 years and is having a really hard time to get back in shape.

This week she went to a nutritionist and  decided to do everything right with  healthy foods and exercises. I am very proud of her and for that reasons I have decided to give her all the support I can.

I started to eat really healthy on Monday same days as she did. For now on we are supporting each other on that not only for weight lost but mainly for our health and well being. Every time I feel like eating something bad I will think about her and I will not do it.

Anyway, this is one of my salads for this week. Amazing and  delicious with all the vitamins you need. I made just for myself so if you sharing with someone just add extra amounts.

Ingredients for the salad:

– Arugula

– Fresh boiled beets

– One strawberry

– 7 raw almonds

– 1/2 avocado

–  one tablespoon of goat cheese

– some slices of cucumber

Dressing:

A mix of a little bit of lemon juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard, and red wine vinegar (optional).

The salad with dressing is yummylicious.

Here is a pictures of my little puppy. He is getting bigger.

Are pets good for your health?


Pets don’t only provide companionship and unconditional love, but they also can improve your health. 

A pet keeps your cholesterol and blood pressure low. Reduz your stress,  helps fight depression and keeps your immunity stronger.

They are not only good for your heart, but also for your mood. They help you interact more with people. And force you to stay more active. By having a pet you will be healthier. 

Bigwig, our dog is with us for almost a month now. Things changed  and are still changing slowly. He helped us to be more organized. We can’t leave our shoes by the door, or our sweatshirts on the chair,  or shocks on the floor and food where he can reach. Also the time that before was for computer and/or boredom now is fulfill with walks, fun, play time, bites and love. He is like our little baby and we love him more than anything.

At the park

I love take photos of him every time because I know he will grow so fast and I will miss my little puppy.

Playing

He loves carrots, people, kids, socks, run,bite, sleep, play with everything except his toys, cats, garbage truck and blog. ( he always sits on my lap and watch me blogging so I guess he likes it)
