Hello dear tribe, and welcome to our first blog post since the birth of our baby daughter Sofia. It's been a hectic week as we welcome our 6th child into the world here in Germany, and we're slowly adapting to life as a family with our newborn :-)
Costa Rica is where we spend most of our time, and we love it so much here that we're building an Eco-home which we can't wait to see come together! Why do we choose to spend our time here more than anywhere else? Because it's a warm and inviting country to visit with an extraordinarily laid back atmosphere - you may have noticed we're pretty laid back people. ;-)
We're pretty adventurous, you may know this from following our YouTube videos or just hanging out in our Facebook groups. We live about half the year in Costa Rica and along with the beautiful scenery and adventure tourism, it's probably most known for offering a variety of adrenaline-fueled outdoor activities (the kind of activities that make you really know you're alive!!)
One of the things we truly believe in when it comes to abundant life, is good health. We eat a great deal of fresh fruits and vegetables, and natural whole foods, we exercise and when we're in Costa Rica we love to meditate, swim daily, and do Yoga. It's the perfect place to take really good care of yourself and your family.
Did you know we love to Juice? It’s not hard to spot, really, and we had a great question posted on a comment on our Facebook page from Tiphanie CaRoline Rix, who said… “We love juicing and just bought a juicer. We wanted to juice 2 times a day, but found it VERY expensive!! We would buy $30-$40 worth of fruit & veggies at Costco and it would barely give us 2-3 days of juice! (We are 3 people and it barely gave us each 1 glass, twice a day) It's winter where I live, so no garden. Any suggestions on how to lower costs and get more juice out if it?” We do indeed Tiphanie!
In my last post I talked about the differences between Juicing and Blending, or in other words, making fresh juices, or smoothies. In this post we’re going to look at the different appliances that you can use to create these amazing, magical, natural potions for health and vitality. We love to use our Vitamix, which I’ll talk about in a moment, but there are lots you can choose from to get you started.
As a family we love juicing and making green smoothies, and we enjoy them every day and have done so for years. We often get asked about the difference between juices and smoothies, and if they’re the same. Basically they’re not, and I’ll explain why.
