Wake Up

GENERIC-TEMPLATE-1Jack Kerouac on Karma

from his exploration of Buddhism- Wake Up. GENERIC-TEMPLATE

“Karma is a sentient being’s inheritance, the womb which bears him out of it, the womb to which he or it must resort; Karma is the root of morality, for, what we have been makes us what we are now.” (28)

“If a man becomes enlightened, stops, and realizes perfect wisdom and enters Nirvana, it is because his Karma had worked itself out and it was in his Karma to do so; if a man goes on in ignorance, angry, foolish and greedy, it is because his Karma had not yet worked it out and it was in his Karma to do so.” (29)

Juice detox Recipes

juice2

Before we know it, summer will be around the corner which means it’s time to start getting bikini ready. We have found a great way to help shed those few extra winter pounds is by juicing fresh fruit and vegetables. Not only is juicing amazing for your health and weight-loss, it is also great for your skin complexion and especially helps you get back on track after a big night out. Juicing is also perfect for those who lead busy lifestyles, as it allows you to obtain the recommended amount of nutrients/vitamins in one quick glass. We recommend having juice that contains fruit in the morning and vegetable juice at night – due to the amounts of sugar fruit contains.

You can juice basically any fruits and vegetables, however these are a few which we personally recommend:

Apple, Orange, Pineapple, Watermelon, Carrot, Celery, Ginger, Beetroot, Cucumber (not as bad if you peel the skin), Spinach, Kale.

Juice Recipes:

a. Ingredients: 3-5 Carrots, 2-3 celery sticks, 1 knob ginger, 1-2 beetroot (always peeled), top up with organic apple juice and some ice

b. Ingredients: 3 oranges, 3-4 carrots, 3 apples, 1-2 limes

c. Ingredients: 3 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 1 small pineapple, 1 Lebanese cucumber – helps clear sore throats

d. Ingredients: 2 oranges, peeled, 1 lemon, peeled, 1 lime, peeled, 1 ruby red grapefruit, peeled – morning cleanser

e. Ingredients: 1 golden delicious apple, 1 small handful spinach, 1 pear, 1 lime, 1 stalk celery,
¼ medium cucumber, ice cubes.

We hope you enjoy some of these recipes!

with love.
