For this challenge, you will need one quote from Louise Hay every day, a notebook and a pen. It doesn’t matter which day of the month you will start this challenge. You can start it anytime and anywhere. Think of this as a sign from the Universe and whenever you see this post you can start the challenge, either 1st or 31st of the month. 

Louise Hay was a motivational author of several self – help books that I am sure you will love them. She is one of my favorite authors and woman that I really admire. Louise Hay is famous for her affirmations and if you are on a personal development journey, suffering from psychosomatic illnesses or want to change our life, make sure you read at least one of her books.

Every morning read one quote. If you are not a morning person or don’t have plenty of time in the morning, try this challenge at any time of the day when you can. But, I would recommend doing it in the morning before your day start.

Sit in a quiet and peaceful place and be in touch with what you read. Read the quote for the day. You can say it out loud if you prefer to. Did it provoke something in you? Does it remind you of something? Is there anything you want to do? Did you learn something new about yourself? If not, what did this quote means? Do you agree?

Perhaps every quote won’t awake too many emotions every day, but I believe that you will have a new motivation each day. After 30 days, read the notebook and all the stuff you wrote. I am sure that you will learn many new things about yourself.

You can do this exercise with your morning coffee or tea, on the road to work, or somewhere in between. It will not take you more than 5 minutes a day, but I am sure you will feel empowered afterward.

It’s great if you’re not a type that wants to meditate, but I believe that each of these quotes can be seen as a sign from the Universe to you, help you raise your awareness, and motivate you.

You can do this exercise with other authors and quotes. It is not necessary to use these, but this is my choice and I am sure you will like it. 

If one or several quotes provoke in you something big and you can’t deal with it alone, please consult with a therapist.

Enjoy your shopping!

Easter is in one week, so I started decorating my home with all the decorations I have from the previous years, and of course, I always buy something new to make me feel better. I made a post with all my Easter essentials; if you’re interested, you can check here: Easter Shopping List

If you read my other articles, you can see that I make royal icing sugar cookies for almost every occasion. I’ve never made Easter cookies over the years, so this year I decided to give it a try. In the basic recipe for sugar cutout cookies, I added a little bit of poppy seed, because poppy seed reminds me of Easter (my mother always makes poppy seed desserts this time of the year). It is a very small modification, but it makes all the difference in taste and also in presentation.

Ingredients:

Poppy Seed Cookies:

170 g butter (softened)
150 g sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
370 g all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
20 g poppy seeds
2 tsp lemon zest (optional)

Royal Icing:

1 egg white
150 g powdered sugar
Food colorings

Directions:

1. In a large bowl beat butter with sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla extract and continue mixing

2. In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, poppy seeds and lemon zest (if using). Add this mixture in the butter mixture and mix on low speed. Continue by kneading the dough by hand until it’s all combined

3. Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for 1 hour to chill or 20 minutes in the freezer

4. Preheat the oven to 180 °C/350 F. Line 3 baking trays with parchment paper

5. Roll the dough on a floured surface with a rolling pin, around 6 mm thick (I use this adjustable rolling pin, with removable multi-sized discs to ensure getting the desired thickness of the rolled dough). With a cookie cutter cut any shapes you like. Line the cookies on the baking trays and bake them around 10 minutes, depending on their size. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely

6. For the royal icing beat the egg white until frothy. Add the powdered sugar and mix until you get thick mass. If the frosting is not enough thick add more powdered sugar until you get the right consistency. If you’re using food colorings divide the mixture, add the food colorings and mix it until the icing is homogenous. Pour it in a piping bag and start decorating.

Celebrating Easter, Easter Poppy Seed Cookies

Every culture and family have different traditions for celebrating Easter. I want to make the most that I can to have a perfect holiday, trying to bond with family and friends, and also, to make everyone happy and satisfied. I try to make tasty food, decorate the home, set the table with Easter decorations, etc.

This is my shopping list with all the essentials for celebrating Easter. I hope it will be of great help to you to have a perfect celebration this year.

Egg Dye

This item is the most important thing you need for this Holiday. Purchasing good quality colors is essential, so the eggs will look good, even if you don’t continue with extra decorating.

There a lot’s of painting kits for decorating eggs, so that you can include your children in all the work. It will be fun for every member of the family. Also, you can organize egg dying and painting party with friends so you can make this holiday to be a fun way to bond with everyone.

Chocolate Bunnies and Eggs

What’s Easter without chocolate eggs and bunnies? I just love them. This year I’m very ambitious, and I will try to make homemade chocolate eggs and bunnies. I have polycarbonate molds, and I already bought three types of couverture chocolate for tempering: dark, white and ruby. If they turn out ok, I will gladly share the process of making them with you.

Easter Mugs

I have themed mugs for every occasion: Christmas, Valentine, birthday, spring, summer, autumn, motherhood, etc. Some of them are handmade (I use special colors for ceramics), some are store brought. Easter mugs can be fun to make at home; there are endless designs you can draw and paint. But if you’re not that into handmade crafts, or if you’re don’t have time for such activities, it’s best to buy few already decorated mugs, and enjoy your morning coffee or tea.

Easter Table Decor

For the Easter Sunday Lunch, the whole family is gathered, and traditionally we cook lamb every year. I want to give accent to the table decor; I put Easter or Spring themed tablecloth, use Easter themed plates and napkins. Also, I put some decorations, like small baskets with eggs, flowers, bunny shaped napkin holder, bunny shaped salt&pepper shakers, and everything else that is suitable for the occasion.

Perfect Easter Celebration
Easter Shopping List

In the morning we don’t have that much time or creativity to cook a nice meal, which is contradictory to the fact that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. That’s why it would be nice if you have all the ingredients prepared the night before, so when you get up in the morning, you will need no more than 10 minutes to prepare a healthy meal that will keep you full until lunch. Make a plan ahead: Make grocery shopping for the weekend; Prewash the green salads, so you will have enough for few days; Bake/boil the meat if you’re using some for preparing salads or some other dishes; Boil eggs and keep them in the fridge; Make homemade spreads that can sit in the fridge for longer time, so anytime you need a quick meal, you will have the preps.

Here are some ideas I recommend for making quick, easy and healthy breakfasts:

1. Egg recipes

Eggs are full of high-quality proteins (they contain all of the essential amino acids), and proteins give your stomach satiety for a longer time, rather than high carbohydrate meals. So if you want to feel full for a longer time, just add an egg in the recipe, and it will change the whole experience. You can check these egg recipes for more ideas:

2. Homemade Buckwheat Bread

Try making this healthy bread, full of protein, fiber, healthy fats, and minerals the night before, so when you get up in the morning you will have fresh bread, so you can combine it with whatever you want. You can make avocado toast with vegetables and/or eggs; You can put different spreads (like peanut butter, nut butter, hummus, olive paste, sour cream, cottage cheese spread), and combine it with vegetables, like tomatoes, cucumber, radish, peppers, etc. Also, you can make a sandwich and take it with you at work. It’s a time saver.

Check out my two recipes for hummus:

Fava Beans Hummus Recipe

Easy Hummus Recipe

3. Buckwheat with probiotic

This meal is magic if you want to lose weight fast. But why Buckwheat? Because it is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, and also buckwheat helps you feel full longer, so that is one reason why it is great for losing weight. If you combine it with homemade kefir or yogurt, you get the perfect combination. Kefir is one of the most probiotic-rich foods that support the detoxification process, and also is rich in calcium, magnesium, biotin, vitamin B12, and many other nutrients. It is low in calories and rich in protein, so it will keep you full longer.

4. Rice cakes

Rice cakes are low calorie, gluten-free substitute for bread. Everything you combine with bread, you can make with rice cakes. You can make them savory or sweet. Use all the spreads I mentioned above (avocado, hummus, sour cream, peanut butter, nut butter, olive paste, etc.), and add protein (eggs, cheese, tofu, tuna, etc.), so you will feel full longer. For the sweet version, you can use mashed banana or avocado, tahini, peanut butter, nut butter, and add fresh fruits or fruit jams and preserves, dark chocolate chips, seeds, shredded coconut, etc. Combinations are endless.

5. Smoothies

Depending on the ingredients that are used to make the smoothie, you can make this type of meal to be filling. If you add enough ingredients that are high in fiber, protein and fats, I believe that the smoothie will satisfy your satiety until lunch. The most common base for the smoothies I make is banana, oatmeal and milk/yogurt. After that, you can make any combination you like. Add fruits and/or vegetables, nuts, seeds, peanut butter, dried fruits, coconut, protein powder, etc. I don’t add additional sweeteners in my smoothies because the banana and the extra fruit I use, have enough sugars.

6. High protein salads

It’s best if you have your green leafy vegetables washed the day before, so in the morning you can just add the other ingredients and get a nice, nutrient-dense meal. You can combine lots of stuff with green leafy vegetables: Chicken (cooked the day before), fish (canned or cooked the day before), vegetables (frozen or canned for time-saving), nuts, seeds, fruit (fresh or dried), cheese, etc. I rarely follow recipes for making a salad; I usually use ingredients I have in my fridge and storage, so I always make up some new and interesting combinations.

These peanut butter cookies are a healthier version of the classic chocolate chip cookies. Instead of wheat flour I substituted oatmeal, honey instead of sugar, peanut butter instead of dairy butter. So, if you’re aiming for gluten free, dairy free diet, this dessert is a perfect choice for you.

They have very strong peanut taste, so if you’re a peanut lover (I know I am), I’m sure you will make these cookies more than once.

These peanut butter cookies are a high-calorie snack, so try not to eat the whole batch on the same day, leave some for the next days 😛

Flourless peanut butter cookies

Many times when we cook, we use only the egg yolks for some particular dish, and we have egg whites leftovers. I often make this egg white cake, so I can use up everything I have in my fridge or freezer.

If I don’t use the leftover egg whites for the next two to four days, I freeze them. Their shelf life is one year if you keep them in the freezer. Always remember to label the container with the number of egg whites and the date they are frozen. If you have many egg whites, separate them in smaller containers, so you won’t have to thaw all of them if you need an only small quantity for some recipe.

Check out some other recipes in which you can use leftover egg whites:

Macaroons

Royal Icing for Cookies

This recipe is open for modifications because you can use any dried fruits and make a different ratio between them depending on your taste (or you can use only one type of dried fruit). You can use dries grapes, cranberries, pineapple, figs, dates, mango, papaya, apricots, plums, ginger, etc. Also, you can put chocolate chips in the mixture if you want to achieve chocolatey taste.

The zest of lemon and orange gives this recipe a lovely fresh and exotic touch, but you can make this recipe without them if you prefer so.

The good thing with this recipe is that you can bake it in any shape you like. I usually use a rectangular or square pan, but you will not make a mistake if you make it in a circle pan, bundt pan or muffin tin.

I love old recipes my mother made for me when I was little. Our family has lot’s of recipes that are passed through generations. I collect all those recipes so I can give them to my children, and my children to their children, etc.

This apple dessert is one of those old recipes that I wanted to share with you because it’s so easy to make, so delicious, and at the same time nutritious. My mother made this apple dessert all the time for my sisters and me when we were little because she wanted to implement more fresh apples in our diet. And isn’t it magical when you incorporate fresh apples in such a lovely dessert which you can’t wait to eat it?

Also, when you make this recipe, you can make lot’s of modifications, depending on your taste. For example, you can switch the walnuts with any nuts or shredded coconut, so that the dessert will get a different flavor. If you have a toddler, and you’re not giving him yet nuts, you can skip the nuts, and use that amount for biscuits or shredded coconut. You can play with the spices, use anyone you like, or don’t use at all if you want it to be plainer. Don’t forget to take in consideration lemon or orange zest for adding more taste.

The original recipe for this apple dessert is to be in a shape of balls, but my family modified it because shaping balls can be time-consuming. Instead, we would divide the mixture into nice glasses or dessert bowls.

However you decide to make it, I hope you’ll enjoy this old family recipe.

I made these delicious energy balls with only three ingredients: Raw almonds, dates, and tahini. I rolled them in shredded coconut, but you can use whatever ingredient you want (chopped almonds, sesame seed, cocoa, etc.). They are raw, vegan, lactose free, gluten free and super nutritious.

These energy balls are packed with so many nutrients, so, I can have the freedom to name them Nutrients balls. They’re rich in protein, dietary fiber, polyunsaturated fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, B vitamins, folate, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, selenium, etc.

So if you have some nutrient deficit, this recipe is so good for you to try. But be aware that this recipe is a high-calorie snack, so I would recommend eating one or two pieces per meal. I know it sounds like a small quantity, but they are very satiating, you won’t need to reach for another.

You can make lot’s of modifications with these energy balls, like adding cocoa, carob powder, different kind of nuts instead of almonds, seeds, spices, etc. Be creative!

Sometimes, when I don’t have so much time on my hand, I don’t roll the mixture into balls, I just put 1 or 2 tablespoons in a small cup, sprinkle with shredded coconut or something else, and serve it like that.
