Healty dieting

Being healthy in general is influenced by what you eat. Healthy eating habits are the best ways to stay healthy. It is not about refusing to eat and becoming too thin.It is also not about denying yourself your favourite food. Healthy dieting is about making you feel good about yourself but also improving your health. You also need to make sure you have energy o go about your day right. healthy dieting is not supposed to be complicated all a person need to ensure is that they eat all nutrients including vitamin rich foods. Most people just ignore juices but they are very necessary.

Why add juices into your diets.

Picking the right diet for you can be hard but that is a common problem. Experts will give each person different dieting strategies but not all will work for you. Eating vegetables and fruits is said to directly affect a person lifespan. Juicing is a good trick for people seeking to increase their nutrient intake however you cannot only take in juices and expect to be healthy. There are some juices that will lose the fibre but the fibre is also important in order to stay healthy, there are ways to retain them.

All you need to know about juices.

Eating fruits can be very beneficial to your health. Fruits have different ways of serving and preparing from smoothies to salads fruits are so versatile. If you are not so much into fruits and vegetables juices are a good way to get them in. Making juices, perhaps with a green star elite, in the house is fun and very healthy. Juices will help you stay hydrated you do not have to drink pure water all the time. Add in some juice to the meals and also during snack times. You can learn to make your juices more delicious by trying some different recipes. Experts advise on the use of sweeteners that are noncaloric.

Some people have used juices to lose weight but juices are more than that. Including it in your meals is more effective and healthier. Juicing can make a person lose weight but it is better to consult with a nutritionist first. Drinking juices can be a very great way to detox. Blending the cucumbers, kales and what other fruit or vegetables you want will help you still get the vitamins without having to chew them down or cook them. Eating a balanced diet is the most important way of staying healthy and even improving your mood as a person.

Youre much stronger than you think

Its been more than 10 years, but I still remember how I felt the day I left Sweden for my big adventure. I was going to spend a year working as an au pair in a Swedish family in a suburb to Paris, and I was standing at the airport in Sweden saying goodbye to my parents. I was happy, excited and slightly petrified. This was my first time going away on my own and even though I had met the family briefly in Sweden, I still didnt know them that well and I was a bit nervous as how it would be to live in a family that wasnt my own.

Looking back now I want to pat my 19-year old self on the back and say; ”dont worry. Youre much stronger than you think you are and you will have a great time.” Because I did. The best of times. Ok, it wasnt always fun and games when the children refused to do their homework, go to school or was just missing their parents and took it out on the new au pair, but over all it was amazing. I got to meet some great people, a few of them I still have good contact with and are proud to call my friends, and others whom I cant remember the name of now, but they still have a place in my memory. I got to know and enjoy one of the greatest cities in the world, Paris, the city of light and love.

One of my first days in France, my new family took me into Paris to show me around. I remember walking in to the Notre Dame where a choir practiced and I got goose bumps on my arms as the ethereal atmosphere moved me in a way Id never experienced before. That was the beginning of an intense love affair between Paris and I. Im so grateful that I got to walk along the Seine, eat crêpes in many of the countless stalls around the city, acquiring a student pass at the Louvre which meant I could oogle at the magnificent art as much as I wanted to, going up the Eiffel tower seven times, discovering the best markets, eat baguettes and chocolate bread and just enjoy life the parisian way. A memory for life, thats for sure.

Paris was my first adventure, but not my last. After that I studied in Sweden, moved to England, back to Sweden, then Germany and now in England again. To me, Sweden is always my home, but I enjoy getting to see other places and experiencing other cultures. It may seem like all European cultures are the same, after all were in the EU together, but my experience tells me we are very different, and thats a good thing! I might be annoyed by some things, but living in other countries has taught me tolerance and patience when it comes to new things. I know I will get used to them, eventually.

My advice to anyone who is thinking of moving abroad and experience something new is to go for it. You wont regret it. Ok, you will probably regret it many times as there will always be something to annoy you, but you will get over it and experience something great too. The memories you create will be with you forever.
