Hi girls 🙂 Today I wanna talk with you about something a little different, sharing a few of my beauty secrets and.. my usual morning routine. As you’ve seen in some of my previous posts on beauty, I’m really careful what I eat, and I try to keep a gluten-free diet, with organic food. I avoid processed stuff, and I strongly believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, that’s why I try to enjoy a consistent breakfast every day, with organic food.
About a month ago I’ve seen an interesting bio supplement at my friend from Vienna, a raw protein powder that she totally loved and recommended me to use it all, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Luckily a couple of days later I’ve remembered about Republica Bio, a website specialized in organic products, and guess what? I’ve found exactly that protein powder and several other products that I’m really thrilled about. I’ve tested them out for almost a month and now I’ve decided to make a special post about these products.
First, the powder is called Super Greens, and it’s an excellent source of proteins, minerals and vitamins, that’s gluten and lactose free as well. It’s practically a mix which transforms any smoothie or drink into a healthy green wonder, that will give you more energy every single day. I’ve added a little spoon of this powder every morning to my smoothies, and it’s great! below you can see one of my smoothie recipes where I’m using Super Greens as well.
Another product I totally love is the coconut water, that I’m also using for my smoothies, together with Super Greens. This coconut water is also a natural isotonic drink, which helps you recharge your batteries after a lot of effort and it could give you a nice dose of energy, right after you wake up. When you’re a hurry, drinking a smoothie with these two elements should get you up and running, and it also has many other health benefits.
The last product I want to talk about is the coconut oil 🙂 For me it was a real adventure to find the right one, and trust me when I say I’ve tried a LOT of coconut oils, but finally I’ve discovered the one that totally works for me, also from Republica Bio.
There are many things to say about the coconut oil – for me it’s a super ingredient, that can be used both for beauty treatments and also in recipes for smoothies or some dishes, but I mostly use it for health care and beauty. If you use coconut oil as a body lotion after every single bath your skin will look so soft and smooth, and it will also have a lovely glow that will charm anyone.
I also use coconut oil for face or hair masks, because it rejuvenates your skin and it also protects your hair, and it’s the perfect ingredient for body scrubs too, in combination with brown sugar. You could even use it as a lip balm once a week.
So this is my super healthy way of starting the day – 3 ingredients, raw protein powder, coconut water and coconut oil, mixed with fresh food. If you’re going to have a diet like this, I’m sure your skin and your body will thank you 🙂
I’m finally back home but guess what? Just as I got off the plane, I was back on the road, going home to my mom, in the beautiful Romanian countryside. Two weeks
