Good morning lovely people! Yes, I know many of you suffer from the cold at the moment. I just tool my best friend L to the airport and she was really, really not looking forward to flying back to the cold in Munich. But, beware, even in Malta it rains today so if we all can’t have spring – why not create the taste of spring in your cosy home and make the most out of a lazy Sunday??
Since one or two weeks strawberry season has begun here in Malta. You can buy them at little stalls next to the street and from the moment you put this little box of red yumminess into your car, the flavor takes over the (in my case tiny) space. As some of you know I’m trying to incorporate an alkalizing way of nutrition into my daily diet (60-80% alkalizing foods and only 40-20% acidic foods. Why you can re-read in my first post about this topic some weeks ago). So it’s important to know that strawberries are acidic. To keep the balance you can always mix them with some alkalizing ingredients (cucumbers, celery stalks, herbs like mint, lemon/ lime etc). Don’t get me wrong, they are still great for your health anyways: they contain tons of vitamin C (an average serving provides you with the double amount of the recommended daily amount of this immunity-boosting vitamin) as well as vitamin B (supports nervous system and fights stress) and ellagic acid which helps fight cancer and destroys toxins in smoke and polluted air.
So, get some strawberries, get your juicer & blender kickin’ and enjoy the taste of spring on your sofa while looking out of the window in the rain and not even bother about it 🙂
P.S. For the perfect musical support switch on my all time favorite radio station from Austria FM4 and listen to their regular Sunday show “Sunny Side up” – always from 10am to 1pm.
