Full moon, new moon, gibbous moon; there is a lot going on with that beautiful glowing sphere up in the sky. In my last blog, I started my journey about all things moon. 🙂 I shared with you my thoughts and findings of my first toe-dip in what feels like an ocean full of info about the moon. As I am a very down to earth person, I find it difficult to truly believe the moon can have a huge impact on one's life. However, I cannot deny that during a full moon my former students were crazily energetic. Even research proved that during the full moon phase our sleep quality is not up to par. That is why I think I should give this whole moon thing a chance. Will you join me?
Every now and then I have these restless nights. I toss and turn and it takes ages for me to fall asleep. The next day I feel tired and my brain can be best described as Christmas lights: not bright, yet very cosy and warm. I searched for a reason why I couldn't sleep and up until now, I didn't really find one.
While I was doing something else completely, I stumbled upon a blog in which the writer briefly mentioned having restless nights before and during the full moon. It intrigued me and I started reading about the moon and its effect on people. There are lots of weird spiritual websites and books that are just a tad too much for me, which made me decide to find my own path, backed up by science and down-to-earth common sense. So, if you are not so much into the whole spiritual mumbo jumbo, join me on my travels to the moon. I promise to keep both feet firmly on the ground. 😉
I see many coaches posting recipes for healthy snacks. To me, this is rather counterproductive. A healthy snack is not healthy. It remains a snack and does not solve the underlying problem. Does this mean you cannot have a snack every once in a while? Sure you can! But please, eat a good one. Personally, I always choose a good chocolate bar over a healthy smoothie Why...?

Variety is important when you want to eat healthily as it helps you stick to your healthy lifestyle, it makes the meals more satisfying and less boring and last but not least, it gives you a general feeling of bliss when you taste new flavours. That is why I am always looking for new recipes. The recipe of today's salad is created by my good friend Marthea and it is an amazing dish. Easy to prepare and so tasteful that I cannot keep the recipe all to myself.
