Juica – to buy or not to buy expensive juice detox?

People are always looking for a new magic diet or some other tool that will help them to lose weight fast without spending time exercising or properly monitoring their nutrition. Sites like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are bursting with before-and-after pictures of people who have gone on a juice or tea detox. Juicing, or a short detox regimen comprised exclusively of fruit and/or vegetable juices, is especially popular during the summer. As such, so-called ‘juicing’ is big business around the world. This concept is especially popular in the fast-paced corporate cultures of the USA and Russia. Many busy professionals may not have enough time to make or stick to healthy eating plans, but have money to pay for two or three days of a juice detox program delivered straight to their home or office. Typically, the juices consumed as part of a juicing regimen are healthy, raw and not pasteurized. There’s also generally no added sugar, which means most of the juices have a very short shelf-life, usually a maximum of five days.   Juica …


Detox Spa Water: recipes and benefits

If you are like me, and you like tasty juices, fruits and berries, but you try to limit the amount of sugar you consume, then you will definitely like my recipe for fruit-infused water. We often hear that we need to drink at least two liters of water per day. To tell you truth, I do not really enjoy drinking plain, tasteless water all day long, so fruit-infused water is a very good alternative. Lemon water is the best. There are a lot of benefits to lemon detox spa water consumption. For instance, lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings. Drinking lemon water can also help boost your immune system. The antioxidants in lemon juice are known to reduce blemishes, wrinkles, and other skin issues. Lemon water will also boost your metabolism if you will drink a glass of it every morning about thirty minutes before breakfast! Just a few of the must-have ingredients for detox spa water recipes are: strawberries, cucumbers, lemons, oranges, mint, kiwi, blueberries, raspberries, and watermelon. Simply combine …


10 Ingredients for the Perfect Weekend

The weekend is over. I really enjoyed mine! What about you? This week I followed my perfect weekend recipe and had a wonderful couple of days.  2 days of fun, joy, rest and balance. Here is my favorite recipe for a perfect weekend: Meet some friends whom you have not seen for a while and you miss. Let it be people who make you happy just because you see their faces. Enjoy their company! Sleep. Have a good nights rest and read a book to wake up in the morning. Eat some breakfast and read a book in bed. Enjoy a little bit of nature, breath and exercise: go skiing, running, kayaking, take a boat,  go skating, and/or have a picnic – it depends on the weather. A walk in the park works in any season. Drink a cup of hot cocoa when you return. An active weekend is the best! Watch one movie that you put in your “to watch” list.  Spend time with your family: dinner, a telephone call, a skype call, going to …


Life is wonderful

I ran away from cold Sweden to warm and sunny Spain and find myself on one of the Canary Islands for Christmas. I took a friend with me and now everyday is characterized by sleeping, eating, laying on the beach and reading, reading, and more reading. Massage, detox, fresh sea air, meditations and yoga in the mornings at the beach, power walking in the evening… Diving with beautiful fish. I left my computer at home on purpose and took paper books, audio books and beautiful bikinis instead 😉 This picture, full of inspiration, is a special gift for Life as an Investment readers. Merry Christmas! Love,  Norda.
