Working day = boring day

Hi guys..

Today was totally unlike a REAL Saturday SHOULD be...:/ FULL of school work... well,that's life I guess !! And what a pity that I'm SO un-concentrated these days!! My concentration is... somewhere else ehh!!


Well..but actually I managed to eat some nice food to keep me going through the whole school papers..for my fuel..!!

After I got out of bed I just jumped into my sporty clothes and did some morning YOGA =))
It was SO refreshing!! It took 3o minutes.


Then,after the nice session I had something quick for breakfast...

GREEN SMooTHIE =) (the kind that does NOT look pretty but is SO good :))

This smoothie consisted of:

-bananas (2x)

-apples (5xsmall)

-bok choy leaves (a few)

-almond butter (2 TBSP)

I also added a HANDFUL OF GREEN RAISINS and 1/4 cup of BUCKWHEAT GRANOLA (mm)

It was a quickie !! But tasty!! And good for you hah !!

After that I started my BOOORING work... :/ I'm finishing high school so we're having pretty much work to do...well...have to deal with it..somehow!!

I got hungry so I had this as a LUNCH/SNACK...

You see there :

-"No-Egg Salad" <- it was celery with avo plus nooch plus onion plus loads of herbs like dill and parsley plus a PINCH of Wasabi powder(I'm addicted to it right now!!)

- Essene Bread (5 slices)

- Carrots

- Almond Butter (2 TBSP)

and a banana =))

I munched on these while working a bit later...

..more carrots...

(between some school papers bleh)

...and 3 little Spirulina Energy Balls /German brand/ ( I ate the third before I took the photo..)

Brain-working really makes me HUNGRY (actually VERY hungry)...


For my dinner meal I had some really delicious food...!! It made me HAPPY!!

well..yeah, it was HUUUUUGE (like always!!)

-mixed greens (underneath all the other stuff-coupious amounts
-tomatoes (5x)

-avocado (1/2)
-dill & parsley

along with these I had some amazing stuff

-BOK CHOY STEMS filled with my leftover "No Egg Salad" =)) It was absolutely a winner!!

-Essene Bread with leftover salad spread (4 slices)

I promised you to tell sth more bout the mysterious bread.... =))

It's a great thing , belive me !!

Essene or Manna Bread = The Bread of Heaven

While not exactly manna from heaven, Essene or manna bread comes close to being the most perfect bread there is on the planet. It is simple, nutriitious, and delicious, and has been the original form of bread for many peoples for thousands of years. Our modern day bread simply cannot compare with it in terms of nutition or wholeness, yet it is not widely eaten, especially here in the Western world.
Essene bread derives it's name from the ancient Judaic sect known as the Essenes who flourished from the 2nd century BC to the 1st century AD and who lived a very ascetic lifestyle. They practiced vegetarianism, fasting, communal living, and the healing arts. They also embraced reincarnation, astrology, and other related disciplines now banned by the Christian Church. They formed for the particular purpose of birthing avatars or Christed individuals onto the Earth plane. Essene bread was one of their staple foods. Jesus himself was an Essene and partook of this wholesome bread.
Traditionally, Essene or sprouted bread was made by grinding berry roots between rocks or millstones and laid to bake on stones heated by fire or the scorching sun. This is how, for example, the captive Hebrew tribes in ancient Egypt made their bread. In the Essene Gospel of Peace, a 1st century Aramaic manuscript, the Master gives the following instructions on how to make the bread.
"How should we cook our daily bread without fire, Master?' asked some with great astonishment. 'Let the angels of God prepare your bread. Moisten your wheat, that the angel of water may enter it. Then set it in the air, that the angel of air may also embrace it. And leave it from morning to evening beneath the sun, that the angel of sunshine may descend upon it. And the blessing of the three angels will soon make the germ of life to sprout in your wheat. Then crush your grain, and make thin wafers, as did your forefathers when they departed out of Egypt, the house of bondage. Put them back again beneath the sun from its appearing, and when it is risen to its highest in the heavens, turn them over on the other side that they be embraced there also by the angel of sunshine, and leave them there until the sun be set.'" (p. 37)
Today's Essene bread is produced with the same two simple ingredients -whole sprouted grain berries and pure water. The grinding and baking however are done in a slightly different manner, using more modern technology(food processors and ovens), especially in the cold or northern zones of the planet where the required heat is not always available from nature..

That's it guys!! Really give it a try it's great!! And SOOOO good for you & delicious (a winner!!)

During the whole day I drank PLENTY of water... here's me fav water bootle , isn't it adorable?? =)

Well....after all the work I had to relax a bit .....I made some nice atmosphere with candles.. Soo nice...I enjoyed it with my family and it was great...!!

Now I'm pretty exhausted ...I'll go to bead and read "Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho...

DO YOU LIKE HIS BOOKS..?? have a great Sunday!! I hope somebody will visit my blog ...... or...??? =((

Anyway, I'll be back tommorrow!!

Hi Agnes!
You have such a great blog here--your food is so unlike anything I see it!
I know exactly what you mean about needing to refuel when your brain is working hard. The other day I was SO hungry after my test, even though I had eated breakfast just an hour or two beforehand...oh well! Best of luck with studying this weekend!

Welcome to the blogosphere, Agnes!

I really applaud you for making such healthy food choices. Most young women your age feast on junk food. By eating a vegan diet of primarily raw living food, you'll alleviate many of the health problems that plague folks as they age.

Even though it isn't raw, I do love Essene bread. Yum!

Oh, and am I weird for thinking that your green smoothie not only sounds good but looks good as well?
