Healthy lunch-gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free and oil-free.

A Sunday of these I got home, my mother and my godmother and I wanted to make a healthy lunch for them.

They deserve only the best and take care of them, even if only a little bit is a pleasure of my life.

I wanted to also show that you can make good food gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free and oil-free.

The two are old ladies and their health calls for attention, but it's hard to change the shape of them cook and change the taste of those who live with them. For a day, I wanted to make a simple lunch, healthy and with everything that they always ate and cooked at home.

I believe more than talk in diet, which may or may not eat, you help more teaching by example.

If someone in your family needs improve habits make a healthy lunch for this person shows that you can eat well and with pleasure being healthy.

No pressure, eating with pleasure and lightness. Gradually becomes a habit and not a disease.

At home I have only healthy food options, with more natural ingredients and when Cook is just real food.

I moved and got for me that was the best move I made.

I'm not an expert in healthy cuisine, but the basic changes made in recent months helped my health and want to spread it to the world, starting with my family.

Of course I do my concessions, a good wine, soda every once in a while, chocolates, cakes and ice cream are my delight.

All well balanced and with moderation: this is the secret.

Returning to healthy lunch I adapted recipes for comfort food on Sunday, was healthy and heart, you know?

On my mother or godmother's House Sunday was day of pasta with chicken. This was the Special menu for everyone, I love passion!

I adapted with great simplicity-why am I not the beautiful Gil right mores? -in 1 hour a healthy lunch and dessert was served.

I chose a full gluten-free noodles with tomato sauce goatee and with mature gouda cheese-that has lactose, but only a little.

I have complemented with chopped vegetables and steamed and then sprinkled the spice. Green beans, carrots, asparagus and potatoes with a touch of black pepper, cumin and spices.

Almost everything was no salt added because the spices already give the flavor and when used salt, Himalayan pink salt was that is the one I have at home.

Healthy lunch-gluten-free, no sugar, no oils and dairy

The roasted chicken with potatoes, came from the butcher shop in the neighborhood. I dried the oil with paper towel, watered with flavored water vegetables and took him to the oven for drying more-take the oil. Serve to my guests without skin:)

Let tomatoes goatee on the table for those who wanted to have that tomato PLOC along with the food.

As life cannot be boring we had dessert with face of mother house, but with my adjustments.

Was rice pudding without refined sugar and all dairy-with condensed milk diet and lac. Mom went to stove to me, why the rice pudding is best in life and was delighted in how the IRS became lighter and nothing cloying, but thinks very expensive these products that I buy.

Sad reality:(I can only agree.

For afternoon tea, invented a banana cake gluten free, dairy free, no oil, no sugar. Recipe that I made up myself, I took the aquantidades of common homemade pasta and cakes was changing.

It was a Sunday delight, warm heart, full belly and eating clean!

The recipes are all my adjustments, in my head while I cook always show in the stories, there follows: lis. lifestyle.

How about you be inspired and make a healthy lunch for you and your family?

A month to change | #30to30’s

I'll admit right off the bat: I'm getting old! Missing a month to change my age, my life, my habits and other things.

I lived the longest and earliest 30 crisis ever but entered officially in my astral hell last month to twenty-somethings.

I think in this moment for years and I put a huge pressure to mark this age, you know?

First I never had a birthday party in my life, one for me, all made just for me. There the idea of a party would be the most obvious and gave me super! Started planning, but desmotivei when I saw the work that I could reach my expectations!

Seriously! The person here leads parties very seriously to do just a muffin or ballad. I dream of these 30 years ago so long we couldn't be anyway.

I thought of a short trip, alone and to a place I don't know. That didn't happen because I couldn't get time off work. Obvious!

Then I thought about doing nothing because I was tired of trying to please me and I'm picky I know, a lot of work.

But, huh? I can't stand it! Missing a month to officially change my calendar of life and like every year the blog has always been part of my moments I'm here sharing with you.

I came up with a design, a month to change or #30paraos30 and after 3 months planning what would be the role of the blog and social networks that I think I'm ready to tell you.

The project did not have a name until 2 days ago when Talita Ribeiro, who is also pushing 30, inspired me.

Thus, the project 30 to the 30's is my celebration, my rite of passage that a month to change old!

What is the project?

In these 30 days I'm going to endeavor to change a lot of things about me, do other things, start activities and etc.

I believe that everything we do, think and talk over and over again, becomes an active energy within us and gives us strength and even power.

With this a month to change I want to reinforce good things for my new age.

Is nothing exceptional, but these things have a great importance for me, so help me sending good vibes, okay?

I split my challenges in areas of my life. Then came the blog, my behavior, my intellect, career, finance, health and body and several other things that I'm showing and telling as I am doing.

Follow on Instagram to accompany the stories in real time, but will always have a summary here on the blog!

a month to change-30 for 30

Those are just the challenges I can publish! I have a list of challenges so personal and intimate that I can't write here. But, I'm going to slowly counting.

Wish me luck and of course I'm accepting birthday gifts already < 3

#30to30's is the hashtag to follow posts in social networks. I've already started to share some news with her:)

Sunscreen antiacne: Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne

Sunscreen for oily skin is hard to find, now sunscreen antiacne is suspect eh? Well, I have the skin more oily in the world and adult acne. Test the Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne was like Mission of honor, that if he wins, he wins either.

The Vichy developed this sunscreen antiacne, especially for Brazilian skin. It is therefore recommended for oily skins with a tendency to acne or acnes.

What it promises:

  • Proven effectiveness antiacne;
    High sun protection FPS30 and 17.8 ppd;
    Helps to reduce acne and pores;
    G anti-grease effectiveness;
    Controls the brightness and oils by 9 hours *.

* 53 test consumers, self-assessment after 9 hours of application.

The differential equation:

Powerful Antiacne Complex that assists in fighting acne formation cycle, its elements:
Salicylic acid: Promotes cell renewal in unclogging pores
LHA: Microesfoliação needs, helps prevent blackheads
NIACINAMIDE: Has anti-inflammatory action, acts by inhibiting the inflammatory lesions
Sebustop: is astringent and antiseptic. Ideal for the control of excess sebum and the “shiny” appearance of the skin.

My experience

I use Vichy a few years ago, I’m a fan of skin cleansers and moisturizers.

Use sunscreen every day before makeup and so it was that includes the Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne.

The texture of it is average but still light, nor too full-bodied not too liquid. Apply smoothly and the skin absorbs well. The first plus point is that it does not dry too fast about to flake off or get in the way of makeup. But, of course, as any touch protector dry rub against it “loose” a little.

Sunscreen antiacne: Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne

Second positive point: he won’t let the skin pale, he’s gone in seconds in the application. That’s rare in sunscreen for oily skin and mattifying.

He holds the shine and oiliness, in my case not for 9 hours. But, using a primer + matte makeup this effect is potentiated brightness and g anti-grease.

And the question of being a sunscreen antiacne?

I like to test everything for at least 1 month to give a very real in the ratings.

I’ve been using Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne just over 2 months and what happened in the real was:

I had more pimples after I started using it, but in my case, it’s not just the production of oils that interfere in acne. The adult acne skin takes getting used with products and this rebound effect.

Today, already out of 2 months I think the skin is used and the rebound effect decreasing.

My skin is not a parameter to evaluate the anti acne effect, unfortunately.

Sunscreen antiacne: Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne

But, with all this, I found the sunscreen antiacne of Vichy?

The control of oil was what won me over! But, the fact that I feel no burning or discomfort even with inflammation, is also a plus of Vichy.
It’s pretty hard to find a sunscreen that does not add oils in the skin and to hold the brightness throughout the day. The Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne did very well on my oily skin.

A third positive point, to close, it tube format. You can squeeze every last drop of the product to not waste.

Pilates for weight loss: does it work?

I started doing Pilates for weight loss last year, in the first period of the shock treatment to regain my health.

As soon as I hit the treatment with Endocrinologist and nutritionist I know it was mandatory to have a regular physical activity. Thing I didn’t practice it seriously for nearly 2 years.

I was with the 600-calorie diet, that was the beginning of my treatment of diabetes and weight loss. So I needed an activity light and supervised. My metabolism was going into a near-death State and I had to take a step.

Talking with the he indicated endocrine Pilates as a way to begin the move.

As good person eager I was thinking does Pilates serves to lose weight? Did I chose right? But, I was in my face and courage search studios and, luckily, was opening a Pilates Studio in front of my house.

Lucky huh? I always believe the universe gives us what we need at the moment that we need. I had no excuses, so I closed the monthly plan and I got to know the benefits of Pilates.

When I started Pilates I suffered anxiety and reflexes of stress Bournout syndrome brought me. My body was in the first step of detoxification and hormonal adjustments. Not been phases easier to pass, but the Pilates that helped me keep it together.

With the restrictive diet the body can feel weakness and have dizziness during any effort. So I needed a closer monitoring and Pilates, group classes, are with smaller groups.

In the Studio where I did are 3 students per class and got lucky thanks universe! -have a very caring teacher heard me pull to enlarge my limits very carefully.

In class, always with a soft music and hot I met a world of possibilities with my body. Doing breathing exercises, stretching, and in aparelhoes, with and without accessories. In other words, I experienced pilates as a whole.

-Tip: find a Studio that has this mix, soil/devices/accessories.

Outside this range of options the Pilates is not, even remotely, an activity stop. Is a low physical activity, so seniors can also do. But, it is an activity that requires the body and mind.

Before long I began to focus on the scores and understand parts of my body that I never even knew existed. Pilates has become my happy hour, 1 hour just thinking about me and that changed me!

I always think of others. Stop by 1 hour and be concentrating just on me and my body movements, gave me strength to change my behavior.

If I hadn’t started my changing habits by Pilates I don’t think it would have worked. I needed that emotional rescue to follow me taking care above all.

As was done with pilates for weight loss?

First the teacher explained to me that the weight loss would be the consequence of the improvement of metabolism. That is where the Pilates and any physical activity begin to act.

But pilates isn’t an activity directed for the thinning. He assists in the process as a whole, but it’s not your focus.

One of the techniques of Pilates that met in class used “only” the weight of my body in each workout. Without the help of springs of equipment required so much strength and concentration I perspired rivers.

Every class the teacher did exercises to gain strength, flexibility and balance. Each year associated with breathing and concentration, diminished the sense of stress, nervousness and anxiety.

Pilates helps you lose weight? Yes help!

Since Pilates helps to reduce anxiety and stress it helps control that hunger that is not physics. The improvement is gradual and continuous metabolism with practice, it pays to get a plan of 2 months at least. Not to mention the physical layout and increase mental too. And, in my case, the Pilates opened a world of physical possibilities that I’m loving exploring with the Academy.

Today I super recommend Pilates to everyone. Especially if you are overweight and has never done a physical activity. In the long run you will have a healthier body and mind what you’re going to encourage you to reach your goals.

In two months doing Pilates and hiking take I lost 9 pounds. Then my weight has stagnated and has stopped falling, which is normal, so I keep on doing weight training and swimming.

It was thanks to the Pilates I took a liking to move the body and ease the mind, focusing only on me! A thank you to professor Eduardo for your patience and dedication < 3

I recommend the text Myths and truths about Pilates (click) for those who still have doubts about it.

Gilmore Girls: TV show revival

Gilmore Girls: problematizando a série e o revival

Warning: spoilers, a little bit, but spoilers ahead! Warning 2: it’s only my opinion here, ok?

I was excited about “A year in the life” and started to watch all the 7 seasons again, in a glance! And just amend watching the 4 episodes of the Gilmore Girls revival  Everything to enjoy and to not lose any details.

I really enjoyed the show when I was a teenager, I was 12 years old when the series premiered. Poor girl, she turned on the TV and dreamed of being Rory or Lorelai.

It was easy to look at Rory and see in her everything I wanted to be and see in Lorelai the “fuck” I once wanted to become.

 girls a year in the life 2

But, after seeing all the seasons and seeing the boom of people saying that the series was an example to be followed. That Rory and Lorelai are personal goals, “feminists and empowered”?

I do not know if I can agree … But, I will not be unfair.

Gilmore Girls have a lot of good humor in the script, a precise writer and good placed dialogues With irony, humor and legal references for those who enjoy nerds.

It’s a good TV show to watch that puts women on the agenda at a time when this was not common. It is a complete dramatic comedy that addresses themes without weighing the context. It speaks of family, social class, relationships and life in general. It has everything a series needs to be a success.

That’s why it’s a success!

gilmore girls

I watched all seasons + revival and today I can not see Rory and Lorelai as “goals” anymore. In my opinion, the series portrays stereotypes and patterns, but does not question them.

Even though she is much loved in Stars Hollow, Lorelai is seen as promiscuous, unstable and “sleeping every day with one”.

In the second or third season, a neighbor says to another almost this of her and still calls Lorelai of “poor thing”.

The stereotype of Paris, Lane and even Sookie reinforces the “negative” side of them be as they are, of the choices they make and what they become.

Gilmore Girls shows free women but reinforces the image that if you go like this you’ll be the bitch, the loser, the frustrated, the unhappy.

gilmore girls revival-4

My biggest annoyance is EVERYONE thinking Rory and Lorelai are examples to follow!

I’ll start with Lorelai who is selfish and self-centered to the end. You know, she wants to live the life in her way, good? Ok, me too. I reaaly want to be more selfish in next year #goal

But, she goes over people without caring. Even needing the help of these same people in the past or in the future.

Notice how she treats the neighbors who helped her raise Rory. How she treats Luke, how she treats people in general.

Neither Mia, who adopted her and Rory baby, receives calls or visits of consideration – even being the owner of the Independence Inn.

There are several moments in the series that Lorelai disparages people with and with an ironic tone. There are several moments in the series that Lorelai disparages people with and with an ironic tone.

gilmore girls revival-3 She does not care about anyone but her or Rory. When Rory fall down she keeps the girl on a pedestal to the world. But, massacre the girl inside the house with the intrinsic judgment of “that’s not right,” but she did the same thing in the past.

Even with Sookie and Michel, Lorelai does not have the gift of true friendship, nor the exchange of a business society. She is bossy, does not care about her friends problem, the conversation always returns to her problems. Lorelai still uses everyone as her employees to satisfy her wishes …

Note that Lorelai does not fight in the series, has scenes of discussion, but the end is the same. Everyone bows down to her and obey what she wants.Deep down I think it’s because she’s a victimizer. Or because people see her as “the problem” we’ll make her happy …

There is a scene in which Taylor during the assembly expounds this point of view. He tells Lorelai that he understands that the city was kind and welcomed her with the baby. He says everyone treats her with love and is proud of her and Rory. But that will not give in to her whims “like everyone else.”

Not to mention that Lorelai lies all the time, more than omitting her own mind and stealing things all the time. As if the world owed it to her!

In with parents, Emily and Richard, it is tense to speak of forgiveness, understanding, and so on.

But, I think that if Lorelai had the freedom she wanted, with her parents’ money and her behavior, she would be part of the Life and Death Brigade. Rich, spoiled, bad and swaggering.

 girls

Now Rory is a walking distorted pattern and reproduces the behavior of the mother all the time.

It grew in a glass flask of perfection, being a standard of reference. Accustomed to always being the best girl in town, applauded and helped.

When that changes, it turns out to be: repressed, spoiled, selfish, and irresponsible.

She proves this when she falls in love with Logan and the benefits he brings. Always involving expensive ballads, drinks and lots of money from his father being spent.

Her scene with the pizza delivery friend at the expensive restaurant. Logan invites her, and she accepts even having combined something else with her friend. Logan pays his account and his “poor” friend counts coins to pay. She does not even touch him until he speaks, proves that she, like her mother, thinks of no one. She even tries to show empathy, but deserves to lose her friend!

 girls rory

At a dinner party at Luke’s sister’s house, she does not give a man a hand because he does not have a finger. She just does not greet him and looks disgusted at her mother …

Perfect girl, but no education, no empathy: bubble!

Rory throws all the help she’s always received in the trash when she decides to quit college. A fact that only happened because someone dared to say that she was not perfect.

Logan’s father who says she has no talent, after she trains for him!

She plays in the trash twice, when after 9 years she has no job, money, no house and has an affair with a committed guy – again Rory?

Rory had everything to be very successful and independent in life, but it’s not. All she got was with the help of other people. When the time comes, she returns to her mother’s house, unable to stabilize her life.

Opportunity, study, preparation and money she had. Faltou maturidade, objetivo e até um pouco de caráter ali viu? Faltou mesmo culhões pra fazer acontecer.
Faltou maturidade, objetivo e até um pouco de caráter ali viu? Faltou mesmo culhões pra fazer acontecer.

She never had to go beyond her obligation to study and get good grades to live on. This is not an effort for me, calling grandparents and asking for money, and having a rich boy paying for everything (pension) is not an effort at all!

All his life, Rory received favors. To study, get interviews, internship/job and still need to have somewhere to eat, sleep, live.

 girls a-year-in-the-life-1

When real life has come, even with Logan’s financial support, support and cheer, it fails.

Failure, but spits on some dishes, see? Because the opportunities have to be perfect for the perfect Rory.

Here’s the director’s prophecy:

gilmore girls revival-2 gilmore girls revival-2

Rory returns lost to the home, without direction and with the same spoiled behavior of the mother, crying and does several stupid in a row.

Rory, in the end, is a great person but, failed.

To close the cycle. Lorelai’s life is “perfect.” There’s Luke who loves and licks her boots, Dragon Fly going really well, but she’s starting to freak out. Because? Because she does not know what he wants out of life, if it is to have children, to buy another , to officialize the marriage.

Already in the grief of Richard we see Emily suffering in her way, but will try to make sense of life. Get an occupation and adopt/accept the maid’s family.

Already Lorelai, can not get over the hurt, can not forgive. Neither to help her mother mentioning a good memory of her Father.

She needs to , play a big child and will only call Emily months later.

The affective relationships of the two have always been problematic. I do not think they knew how to “choose”, do you understand?

 girls -review-2 girls -review-2

Rory’s boyfriends were never in the same timing as her, or Lorelai’s. Relationships went away because they did not know what they wanted , they got sick and it was done. Even Lorelai with Luke, watch the outbreak of the last few episodes.

In some season I remember Lorelai saying that she wanted Rory to be different from her.

So it is a shock when in the last episodes Rory appears identical to Lorelai. An adult woman with a child’s attitude.

Both fit well in the ” generation” that this BR article says – the article generalized the generation of people that have everthing ans do not want to do really efforts to be good in life.

I’m not saying the show is bad, but there’s a lot to question.

Everything about the Gilmore Girls is defectively human. Maybe that’s why we understand this punch in the face that was the revival.

There are some good moral lessons hidden in this dramatic comedy series. If you do not have seen, watch again is there! 😉
