A bit of this and that...

It's been a long uneventful week!Weight loss still good,down to 64 kg! Exercise is still not happening!.Wondering if anyone wants to do a exercise challenge? These last 4 kg will need budging through exercise ! Let me know who is up for it!
We were gifted with homemade North African couscous and fresh organic broad beans this week so dh had a sudden craving for broad bean couscous and sour milk.{Algerian traditional dish}

The couscous and beans are salted ,oiled and moistened with water before steaming 3 times for 20 mins each time! At each interval moistening and oiling again.It really is delicious{although I can't eat it}.I use Algerian homemade olive oil which we brought back with us from our holidays.This really is the most amazing oil I have ever tasted.And I have been lucky enough to taste all kinds of olive oils....from the really expensive to the normal store brands.For me nothing compares,I love it! So if you are lucky enough to know someone from North Africa ask them to bring you some olive'll be amazed....
I am loving my new shoes....bought at a discount designer store....all leather ,ever so soft and so feminine.....
And for baby a thrifted pair of leather lovelies!
Have a little health tip too which I am currently trying out.Apple cider vinegar....raw and unpasteurized.
  • Restore your body's natural pH balance - Your blood is supposed to be slightly alkaline,
  • Aid digestion - Apple cider vinegar helps stimulate your stomach acid, aiding the digestion of protein and fats. Good digestion is essential for staying healthy and naturally slim.
  • Promote the growth of healthy microflora - apple cider vinegar is a prebiotic, which feeds probiotics
  • Stop sugar cravings - use apple cider vinegar next time you have a craving for that bowl of ice cream or piece of chocolate cake. Here's a quick remedy that may stop you from indulging: Add two teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar to a 6 oz glass of filtered water, and drink it down.

Let me know what you think or if you are already taking it! Would love to make my own .....

Thoughts for the day...
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  1. Assalam-alaikam,
    have heard a lot about this remedy, but never tried it (even went so far as to buy a bottle of organic apple cider vinegar once). I would love to hear if you found it beneficial.
    Love the babies booties by the way.
