new year

Happy new year to all! 

This year bring lots of excitement and of course a resolution to start again. I feel that I have invest a lot in this blog to just abandon without regret. This is 2012 baby, no regrets! That being said, I would like to concentrate on an array of issues, from health + beauty to cooking + baking, maybe even fashion here and there. 

So lets just dive right in.  

"All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason."
Immanuel Kant

Sense : Taste 

Power Protein Mix

(This makes a wonderful pre-workout snack)

8 T Peanut Butter (soynut butter, almond butter, etc.)
3 - 4 Scoops of Protein Powder
1 T Agave Nectar

1 C dates
.5 C oats
.5 C almonds 
*I combine all these into the food processor to chop up. 

Mix everything up together. If it is a little dry and crumbly, add a little water. 

Store in the fridge. 


Sense: Touch

This face mask is suitable for all skin types and is super simple to prepare. It will cleanse and rejuvenate your skin.

Total Time: 3 minutes
Ingredients:

Add the yogurt to the oatmeal in a small bowl and mix together.
Warm a few drop of honey. To do this, warm a spoon under hot water for a minute, then add a few drops of honey to the spoon.
Stir the honey into the yogurt and oatmeal mixture.
Apply the mask to the face. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with several splashes of warm water. Follow with a warm washcloth.
