Power Shake to cheer you up!

Hey guys!:)

 

These days are somehow strange.. school hasn’t started and i’m tangled up between studying, checking band-stuff and trying to organize myself.

oh, and i’ve just recently started to do some workout again, and i really love it!

it’s so comforting 2 do sth for my body again..how could i forget how much i love sports?! 🙂

 

still, tonight i’m not in the best mood and therefore figured i could use something to cheer me up..yes, of course it’s something sweet! 😉

 

i created this incredibly yummy shake for two purposes:

1.) as stated above, i need some drinkable comfort.

2.) this shake is loaded with healthy power & fuel for the body! which makes it just perfect as a pre- or post-workout shake!

 

try and be amazed!:)

miss flexible.

what- me?

YES! in this post, i’m gonna prove you that i’m not only flexible on alterning recipes, but also in real life.

yum. but more about this delicious shake later.

the thing is, i’m planning on moving out since i was about eight.

you heard me, i’m serious. an own flat has been one of my greatest dreams ever since i was born little, because a) my family circumstances demand for it and b) i’m really longing for being completely independent. it may sound weird, for i’m only 18, but i can tell you it’s what i dream about.

last year i was quite close to fulfilling my dream: i could have moved to a flat with two other girls in vienna, but then i found that the university of vienna was not what i had expected and so i had to back out. eventually i found the right place to study for me, which turned out to be in my hometown, so i planned on moving in the student’s hostel. well, for a number of annoying reasons this wasn’t possible either, and therefore, my dear readers, i needed to redisponse again.

i decided on staying at home for at least another year, which won’t be easy, but doable, which is why i’m currently “working” as my own interior architect slash designer.

yesterday and today i was clearing out my whole room: i said farewell to boxes of childhood memories and daddy helped me carrying them into the attic, i hefted a huge bag of clothes to the “Humana”-container and – this was the most painful thing- i got rid of all the photos and images i’ve been adhering to my walls throughout my teenage-years. my walls always looked like some huge piece of art: photos, images, drawings, lyrics and thoughts were written and glued onto them, and now they’re gone. now these walls look empty, but, to my surprise, i kinda like it.

why do i do all this?

i need more space in my room. i want to make my room more “grown-up”, but in the cool way. i’m gonna paint my walls white and light-green, which is, by the way, my fav color, and i plan on getting a new floor. you have to know that i’ve got a carpeted floor, which is both impractical and ugly..so it needs to go!

it’s been some work, and i’m far from done, but in my opinion this sort of work definitely is fun! 🙂

you wanna see how horrible my room looks right now? 😉

you sure?

so much about the real life. who wants to see what i’ve created lately? 🙂

it’s the ultimate CHAI – COFFEE – SHAKE!

i needed some drinkable motivation for my room-project and, inspired by katie and my taste buds, i made up a recipe for this very motivating shake which is perfect for me! 🙂

it’s easy to do, healthy and contains caffeine. who doesn’t like tasty caffeine?

for 1 shake

– 1 cup mylk (soy, oat, spelt, rice…whatever you like!)

– 1 ripe frozen banana

– 1 espresso, cold

– 1-2 t cinnamon

– 1 t ginger

– dash of pepper

– a little stevia (or more, if you want your shake really sweet!)

–> blend all the ingredients. you’re done! 🙂

* if you prefer a hot beverage, just use hot espresso and don’t freeze the banana, then put your mixture in the microwave.

it’s really yummy, not too rich(depends also on which kind of mylk you decide on) and vitalizing! 🙂

so, i’m off for some more room-work,

have a nice day 🙂

Chai-Latte alá sassi

das hier ist sozusagen das “rezept” für mein unangefochtenes lieblingsgetränk: Chai Latte.

höchst wahrscheinlich hat dieser post den titel “rezept” gar nicht verdient, allerdings hab ich mittlerweile meine ganz eigene methode der zubereitung entwickelt, die ich jetzt hier veröffentlichen werde;)

Ich mach den chai immer auf diese art:

mein lebenselexier

1. wasser kochen;)

2. eine normale tasse mit sojamilch füllen (ich nehme immer “alpro soja- light”)

und ab in die mikrowelle damit; (natürlich kann man sie auch anders erhitzen)

3. kochendes wasser in eine extra große tasse füllen (soll etwa das doppelte fassungsvermögen der     normalen tasse haben) & 2-3 beutel “chai”-tee hineinhängen;

(ich nehme immer den chai von “teekanne”)

4. die erhitzte sojamilch so richtig aufschäumen, inzwischen den tee ziehen lassen;

5. die teebeutel entsorgen (nach ca. 8-10 min.) und die geschäumte milch auf den tee gießen;

6. nach belieben süßen(ich süße nie nach, aber einfach probieren), alles vorsichtig durchrühren          und etwas zimt auf den milchschaum streuen.

voilá!

der chai ist da:)

lasst ihn euch schmecken!

xoxo,

S.
