Recipe: Protein bars (Zuzana's recipe)


I can't stop making this! It's delicious! 
But, you eat it only after your workout if you're trying to loose weight (but if you don't have problem with that you can eat them as a breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks...), that's like award to yourself for finished training :)
I will copy text and picture here, but if you want to see in pictures every step go HERE


Ingredients:
- 1 and 1/2 cup of nut meal (about 60g)
- 3 cups of oats (about 120g)
- 2tbs of honey
- 1 small cup of coconut milk
- 1/2 cup of shredded coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 
- 3 scoops of vanilla flavored protein powder (I don't use this, 'cause I don't have it)

How to prepare:
Nut meal is basically blended nuts. Just take two cups of mixed nuts and blend them in your food processor into a powder like nut 'meal'. Mix it with other ingredients in a bowl. Spread the mixture into a non-stick baking sheet (small one) and bake it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until the top is nicely brown.
Enjoy!

9 tips for healthy hair! / 9 saveta za zdravu kosu!

We all want beautiful, strong, shiny and healthy hair, right? Well, here are few tips, enjoy reading! Don't forget to subscribe and leave comment :) xoxo


1. Always protect your hair! Heat has a negative impact over the hair. Your hair will be dry and you'll have split ends if you don't use heat protector. Dry hair is difficult to style, to solve that problem you just have to use protection sprays, they will protect hair from the extreme heat. Use them every time whether you're blow-drying it, straightening it or curling it.
2. Maybe you noticed that your hair isn't growing as much as it used to, you have to make sure to get all your essential vitamins and also to get regular trims. Massaging your scalp will stimulate the roots and blood circulation which helps with hair growth. Also, great thing for hair growth is castor oil. Before you start massaging your scalp, apply castor oil.
3. Nourish your hair regularly with hair masks. They will make your hair shiny, stronger and more beautiful. Note: use the ingredients your hair needs. You can buy masks in almost every store (where you can find other beauty items), or you can make one in your own home. Choose what's best option for you :)
4. Change type of  shampoo you are using once in a while to keep your hair healthy. Anti-dandruff shampoos can dry out your hair, so try to alternate it with another shampoo to keep your scalp dandruff free, but soft and silky as well.
5. I found this tip on internet and it really works! - Sleep on a silk pillow!  Silk will help to prevent hair from tangling during the night. Your hair will stay soft and smooth during the night. An alternative to using a silk pillow is using a silk head scarf. 
6. Drink a lot of water and eat healthy food. If you eat fast food or drink soda every day, that will show up on your hair (and your skin too). You can find delicious and HEALTHY food you'll enjoy eating. Don't destroy your body while you're young :)
7. Don't use hairbrush while your hair is wet, only when it's dry, or you'll damage your hair! And try to avoid plastic hairbrushes.
8. Stress play an important part in hair loss. So try to relax yourself with yoga, or shopping, blogging, dancing, or find something that you enjoy doing.
9. Brush your hair before shampooing. It will stimulate the scalp and promote blood flow to hair follicles.

Svi mi želimo prelepu, jaku, sjajnu i zdravu kosu, zar ne? Pa, evo nekoliko saveta, uživajte u čitanju!
Ne zaboravite da pratite ovaj blog, kao i da ostavite komentar :) xoxo

1. Uvek zaštitite svoju kosu! Toplina ima negativan uticaj na kosu. Vaša kosa će se osušiti i pojaviće se rascvetali krajevi ako ne koristite sprejeve za zaštitu od toplote. Suvu kosu je teško stilizovati, da bi rešili taj problem samo treba da koristite već spomenute sprejeve, koji će štititi kosu od toplote. Koristite ih svaki put kada sušite, ravnate ili kovrdžate kosu. 
2. Možda ste primetili da vaša kosa ne raste onoliko kao nekad, vodite računa o tome da unesete sve bitne vitamine, ali takođe i da se redovno šišateMasiranje temena će stimulirati cirkulaciju krvi što će pomoći rastu vaše kose. Takođe, super stvar za rast kose je ricinusovo ulje. Pre nego što počnete masirati teme nanesite ricinusovo ulje. 
3. Redovno negujte kosu maskamaOne će učiniti vašu kosu sjajnom, jačom i lepšom. Napomena: koristite sastojke koji su potrebni vašoj kosi. Možete kupiti maske u gotovo svakoj prodavnici (gde se mogu pronaći i drugi proizvodi za lepotu), ili možete napraviti u sopstvenoj kući. Odaberite ono što je najbolja opcija za vas :) 
4. Promenite vrstu šampona koji koristite s vremena na vreme kako bi održali vašu kosu zdravom. Anti-perut šamponi mogu isušiti vašu kosu, pa pokušajte da ih menjate sa drugim šamponima koji će učiniti kosu mekom i svilenkastom.
5. Našla sam ovaj savet na internetu i stvarno je super- Spavanje na jastuku (jastučnici) od svile! Vaša kosa će ostati meka i glatka tokom noći. Alternativa je korišćenje  svilenog šala. 
6. Pijte puno vode i jedite zdravu hranuAko jedete brzu hranu ili pijete gazirana pića svaki dan, to će se odraziti i na vašoj kosi (takođe i na vašoj koži). Možete pronaći ukusnu i zdravu hrana koju ćete voleti. Nemojte uništiti svoje telo dok ste još mladi :) 
7. Ne koristite četku/češalj za kosu dok vam je kosa mokra, samo kad je suva, ili ćete oštetiti kosu! I pokušajte izbeći plastične četke za kosu. 
8. Stres igra važnu ulogu u gubitku kose. Dakle, pokušajte se opustiti s jogom, ili šopingom, blogovanjem, plesom, ili pronađite nešto u čemu ćete uživati. 
9. Očešljajte kosu pre pranja. To će poboljšati cirkulaciju temena, što povoljno utiče na vlasi kose.

Beauty secrets from around the world / Tajne lepote sa svih strana sveta

*Source: http://www.sminkerka.com/2011/03/trikovi-lepote-male-tajne-najlepih-zena-sveta.html
Translated:
China: Women in Chine like to have pretty, beautiful, strong and shiny hair, so for that they use mixture of rosemary, water and green tea. They also drink green tea, which is one of the main things in their beauty. Using green, white, yellow or oolong tea in your diet is a wise move if you want to do a good thing for your health and beauty, these teas are rich with antioxidants, which help us to combat free radicals, whose harmful effects are reflected in diseases, malignantdiseases, dermatological diseases, and premature aging. 
Egypt: A beautiful look begins with pearly white teeth. Women in Egypt are using a combination of baking soda, salt and lemon juice to brush teeth for the perfect smile. This is effective way for whitening teeth, but you may not use it more than once a week, to avoid damaging tooth enamel.
Ivory Coast: African women rely on amazing properties of sheabutter to moisturise the skin and use Rooibos tea as a natural substance that keeps skin young by using large amounts of antioxidants that tea contains.
Italy: For long, thick and strong lashes Italian women use castor oil (apply on the hair roots), and use it for strengthening hair and nails and regenerating dry skin. Women in Italy know the value of olive oil and use it to moisturise their lips, hair and body.

Israel: Women in Israel use black mud for beauty, which is also great for our health (treating skin diseases and helping people who have arthritis).Black mud, Israel specialists of climatology, pull out from the bottom of the Dead Sea, and it contains a lot of minerals which nourish the skin and regenerate it.
Philippines: Here, women use aloe vera gel to strengthen the hair (apply on the hair roots). Also, they use a mixture of fresh grated ginger and finely chopped lime as a remedy for dry skin.
Belgium: Belgium mink oil is popular in cosmetics and is used to reduce stretch marks and other skin irregularities. The oil is great for hydration too, even hair.
Spain: To obtain beautiful, shiny highlights, women in Spain wash their hair using half a cup of mineral water mixed with half cup of cranberry juice.
India: Coconut and almond oil Indian women use because of its hydration properties (for the whole body)Not only that, coconut oil promotes hair growth, while the almond oilis great for dry and damaged hair.

Kina: Kako bi imale lepu, snažnu i sjajnu kosu Kineskinje je ispiraju mešavinom ruzmarina, vode i zelenog čaja. Zeleni čaj i ispijaju, i on je još jedan razlog njihovog mladolikog izgleda. Uključivanje zelenog, belog, žutog ili oolong čaja u svoju ishranu je mudar potez ako jednim udarcem želite učiniti dobro za svoje zdravlje i lepotu, jer su ti čajevi bogati antioksidansima, koji nam pomažu u borbi sa slobodnim radikalima, čije se štetno delovanje očitava u bolestima, malignim oboljenjima, dermatološkim bolestima, i preranom starenju.
Egipat: Lep izgled počinje s biserno belim zubima. Žene u Egiptu koriste kombinaciju sode bikarbone, soli i soka od limuna kako bi iščetkale zube za savršen osmeh. Ovo je efikasan način izbeljivanja zuba, ali ne smete ga koristiti više od jednom nedeljno kako ne biste oštetili zubnu gleđ. 
Obala Slonovače: Afričke žene se oslanjaju na neverovatna svojstva shea maslaca kako bi koži podarile hidrataciju i koriste Rooibos čaj kao prirodno sredstvo koje održava kožu mladom pomoću velikih količina antioksidansa koje čaj sadrži.
Italija: Za dugačke, guste i jake trepavice Italijanke koriste ricinusovo ulje (vatinim štapićem nanesite na koren dlake), a koriste ga i za jačanje kose i noktiju i obnavljanje suve kože. Italijanke veoma dobro znaju i vrednost maslinovog ulja i koriste ga za hidrataciju usana, kose i tela.
Izrael: Žene u svrhu lepote koriste crno blato, koje pomaže i zdravlju (leči kožne bolesti i pomaže ljudima koji imaju artritis). Crno blato izraelski specijalisti klimatologije izvlače s dna Mrtvog mora i ono sadrži niz minerala koji hrane kožu i obnavljaju je.
Filipini: Ovde žene koriste Aloe vera gel za jačanje kose tako što ga utrljaju u koren dlake. Isto tako koriste mešavinu sveže naribanog đumbira i sitno naseckane limete kao lek za suvu kožu.
Belgija: Iako će se zaštitnici životinja na ovo naježiti, u Belgiji je ulje nerca popularno u kozmetici i koristi se za smanjivanje strija i drugih nepravilnosti kože. Ulje je odlično za hidrataciju kože, čak i kose.
Španija: Kako bi dobile lepe, sjajne pramenove brinete ispiraju kosu koristeći pola šoljice mineralne vode  pomešano sa pola šoljice soka od brusnice.
Indija: Kokosovo i bademovo ulje se među Indijkama koriste u izdašnim količinama zbog svojih svojstava hidratacije (za celo telo). I ne samo to, kokosovo ulje podstiče rast kose, dok je bademovo ulje odličan za suvu i oštećenu kosu.
