MUSHROOM POTATO SOUP

Resquested recipe! Here is a little back story behind this soup: When I was little, my mom was making this soup a lot. Of course using white flour as a thickener, but I always loved it. When I grew up and was cooking myself, I perfected the recipe just for my taste and I was …

WEEKLY FOODPORN #2

Hiya, I am back from vacation, ready to share my eats from last week! I am a bit late on this, because we came back home on Monday and yesterday I was super busy with work. We didn’t eat perfectly clean on our vacation, we wanted to enjoy some treats and also, we didn’t know …

WEEKLY FOODPORN #1

Hello world! Another week has passed and it is time to first official episode of Weekly Foodporn on my blog! I don’t have too too much to share, I wasn’t super creative this past week, but I did make some zucchini brownies (two different versions), so that might make up for it. Let’s see those …

ADVENTURES OF MY LIFE #1

Personal stuff alert!!! Being almost inactive on my blog for over a year gives me a lot of space to evaluate and sum up all that happened, all the changes and achievements I made. I had a lot of important moments in the past 12 months, but I think these 10 are the most significant days …

REVIEW: COLT BREW COFFEE

Even though I often say I am a coffee lover, I also am a huge coffee barbarian. Jugging down store bought coffee, very low quality pre-ground beans that looks (and smells) more like dirt than anything else, pouring boiling hot water over it, pressing the grounds down in my fancy french press and then either …

MY PATH TO YOGA

(featured image: Pavlína Neveselá, real life superhero, my biggest female role model and inspiration, friend, pole dance instructor, flexi queen, follow her on Instagram @pavi_ne) Over the past few years I went from a coach potato to a runner, Bodyrocker and HIIT addict, progressed to some lighter weights (dumbbells and sandbag, yeah!) and ended up …

INTRODUCING WEEKLY #FOODPORN!

Hello everybody! Noticed anything different? Yes, my site needed a revamping so badly, plus it needed to be resurrected as well. I’ve been inactive on the blog for over a year and I have no proper excuse for that. Life has been busy with all kinds of unexpected things, life changing experiences and even dreams coming …

HOW I WENT LOW CARB…

… and where did it take me? I was never a fan of too much restriction, when it comes to diet. I never “dieted” before, like some people do, before I found paleo, I never tried any “fat-loss” things, shakes, pills… I didn’t go paleo to loose weight, I did it to gain HEALTH, which, …

SEXY BY NATURE: A BOOK REVIEW

I discovered Stefani Ruper, (who I privately call Super Ruper) the author of this amazing book, just a few months ago (6-7) on my search for a non-hormonal birth control. At that time I was on a pill for 14 years and desperately wanted to go off of it. Her posts about birth control and …

EAT THE YOLKS: A BOOK REVIEW

This is my honest review of Eat The Yolks by Liz Wolfe. Liz is a nutritional therapy practitioner, blogger on RealFoodLiz.com (previously CaveGirlEats.com), dedicated homesteader, bad cook (in her own words) and my secret girl crush for quite a while. She is funny, friendly, charming and beautiful, her personality is very similar to mine and …

MY MORROCCO METHOD JOURNAL – FIRST ROTATION

My previous posts on paleo/primal/raw skincare, haircare in posts here, and here. Also check out Liz Wolfe’s skincare blog for WAY MORE. My search for a perfect paleo shampoo seems neverending. Classic no’poo (baking soda + ACV) didn’t seem to work very well (or I was too unpatient to wait over the adjustment period), the Dr. …

PALEO CAFÉ

In the past, coffee for me was not a pleasure, but a way to wake up after a bad night sleep. I started drinking coffee when I was probably 23-24 years old, and it was purely for the caffeine effect. I didn’t like the smell, I hated the taste. I always had a passion for …

SKINCARE UPDATE

Time to give a little update on my skin issues! Not that it would help anyone, but I like to write it down so I can read later, and maybe give some of you ideas on paleo skincare that works for me (which of course does NOT mean it will work for you 100%). In …

THE PALEO COACH – BOOK REVIEW

I never rate or review a book before I finish reading it. And I really do not understand all the Amazon reviews on cookbooks that are written like 5 minutes after the book is released (unless you had an advanced copy and in that case I am jealous). I would never give a book a …

More

BEEF HEART STEW

 Here we come with another recipe :) As you may know, I received Gather cookbook a while ago, and only tried two basic “recipes” (Deviled Eggs and Cucumber Salmon Bites). I really wanna give this book a good review on Amazon but I honestly can’t do it before properly trying at least a few recipes, …

SELF EXPERIMENT: HENNA

 First time I colored my hair was at 6th or 7th grade in school, and I only got one small piece of hair RED. Bright red. My hair is naturally medium brown and very “blah” looking, and one red hair piece was looking good on a head of a 13 year old :) I think …

MOO-LES CHOCOLATE MOUSE

Some people (like me) like desserts. Some people (like me) have problems with a fat intake. Healthy fat that is. I love olive oil, nuts and avocado, but I most of the time “forget” to eat more of that good stuff. My boyfriend likes avocado only sometimes, when it has a specific level or ripeness, …

HEALTHY INSIDE AND OUT – SKINCARE

 Back in the days I was a huge make-up addict. I never used a foundation on my face, but I was big in EYE MAKE-UP. I was spending HOURS (really, hours) a day on youtube watching make-up tutorials by Xsparkage and Michelle Phan (those two were my favorites) and I was ordering make-up online like …

RAW NUT BAR

I felt like baking last week. I was like crazy. I didn’t crave anything, I pretty much got rid of the Sugar Dragon (except for fruit, but I am working on that right now). So I came up with these bars, inspired by a real deal Raw Bars we sometimes buy in our “bio” store …

PALEO FRUITCAKE

This recipe is a modification of Paleo Bread from Elana’s Pantry. I wanted to make something sweet to serve with tea instead a chemical cookies and cakes with billion ingredients.   You are gonna need: – 5 eggs – 200g almond flour – 50g flaxseed flour – 2 tablespoons coconut flour – 1-2 tablespoons raw …

MEETING THE MAGIC

 “You’ve almost made it, and from here, you can see the finish line. Some of the magic should be happening for you now.”  – Whole30 Daily, day 22.   When Dallas and Melissa directly messaged me on Facebook, asking me if I am interested in meeting them once they visit Prague, it was just amazing. …

WHOLE 30 ROUNDUP

This post is really late and I am sorry for that. Our Whole30 was at the end Whole40. We did 40 super dooper clean days of tasty, delicious, colorful and nutritions meals, we changed our eating habits, we mastered the art of cooking, we learned new stuff, we rocked this and we are super proud …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 29

 I screwed up bit time today. I ate like 500g of grapes and my stomach is filled with water now, my bladder is full and I have to pee like every three minutes. I feel terrible, I didn’t even do my workout because I was so scared of my bladder to explode, lol. I have …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 28

 We do see a finish line already! :) But it is not end of it all. We will keep going. We will just include some honey here and there, some vanilla extract or wine for cooking here and there, we will bake paleo cookies and breads here and there… Pretty much the same thing, right? …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 27

 I cant believe it is almost over! Those 30 days that seemed so impossible to complete before we started! The loooong 30 days that I was not able to manage myself and it took me ONE YEAR to realize how easy and necessary it actually is! Well, we still have 3 more to go, so …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 26

Lets call day 26 a Successful Day in every way. Our Saturday was freaking amazing from the second we opened our eyes in the morning until the very moment we closed them again at night. (Well, we fell asleep after midnight, we were watching a movie.) We spend some quality hugging time together in the …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 25

Days we have left can be easily counted on one hand now. And even though we are super close to end of our first Whole30 as a couple, we are NOT feeling like this will be over for us, really. Today we read all Daily 4 e-mail we missed over the week (days 22 -> …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAYS 23 + 24

I really hate evening shifts. I just don’t have any time to spare!!! W-day and T-day I was working from 10am, instead of 11am, which game me one less hour in the morning, so I didn’t do my workouts for two days, but I don’t have a problem with that anymore. I am doing great …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 22

Another Whole30 day in the bag, yay! :) Nothing really special happened today, I had a pretty good day at work, nice breakfast, good lunch, quick dinner, amazing workout in the morning… what a lovely day! Because I have evening shifts this week, there is nothing special I can do during the day. I usually …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 21

Wow, it really seems that we are 3 WEEKS INTO IT! :) Can’t believe I didn’t have any chocolate, pastry, bread and other stuff for such a long time. (Well, we were not eating it much before either, but still….) Even better is the fact that I don’t crave anything. New week just started and …

WHOLE 30 – DAY 20

 Day 20! 10 days left and our first Whole30 is over! We are not going to throw it all away after these 10 days, no no! We are gonna keep going! We love the way we feel and perform, I also start seeing physical changes, which I am super excited about and it makes me …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 19

Day 19 here, yay! Saturday morning we went to the butchers for bacon and eggs and I made amazing egg-mayo salad from Practical Paleo. It was delish! Then we went to buy fish and sweet potato, because we wanted to have fish for lunch, but it was really dinner. I was planning to clean the …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAYS 17 + 18

Yeah, another summary post, sorry. These last three days were kinda hectic. But that is not a problem right? As long as we eat well and feel great, everything is just FINE :) Thursday at work was a bit more hectic than usual, we had some work system issues (how surprising, lol), but we handled …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 16

Picture time again! :) I took my camera with me to work today, so I could document our breakfast. I miss posting pictures and I like to brag (kidding). Today was a pretty good day, our mood was much better, even though it is still incredibly hot here in Prague, like zillion degrees and my …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 15

 HALFWAY THERE, GUYS!! :) I slacked on taking pictures today again, sorry.

But I have to, to share my progress and make this whole thing more official. :) We went …

First day of a new week, week 2. As Whole30 Daily email says, we will start experiencing The Magic soon. I belive we already do :) Mood is up all day, we are not tired anymore, we sleep light and get up easily. Even though we have to get up at different times this week. …

Helloooo! We survived day 4 of Whole 30 already! Day Four! We rock!!! It is actually a lot easier than we thought it will be. Before we were eating 99% clean so we knew it is not gonna be a big deal. But (as Whole 30 Daily email taught us today) Sugar Dragon is a …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 3

The Whole30, day 3. The Horror. The “Just-let-me-sleep” day. As Whole 30 Daily mail for today says, day 3 is one of the hardest. One one side, I completely agree. I was sleepy and almost falling asleep while standing at work. I took one sip of my morning coffee, plugged my earphones in (listening to my favorite …

More

WHOLE 30 – DAY 2

Hangover time! Day 2 is over :) I just finished cooking dinner and breakfast for tomorrow (lots of yummy stuff!) Today was pretty fun, during the day I was super high, and when I got home I felt tired and exhaused, that I had to eat an apple before doing anything else :D Guess it …

WHOLE 30 – DAY 1

 Drumrolls…. Day 1 is OVER! :) I successfully survived the first of many days of superclean eating. “What’s the big deal? You’ve been doing this for a past 2-3 weeks!” Yes, I know, but this time it is different, because this time it is WHOLE30 CHALLENGE!!! It is not just TRYING to make a change, it …
