#100daysofhappy - Day 13 Juice time!

I am still getting used to veggie juices, however I have discovered that apples sweeten everything up. This juice is sweet and spicy at the same time. Spicy depending on the amount of ginger you add.

For this colorful veggie juice you will need for one large glass:

  • 2 apples
  • 1 beetroot
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2cm of ginger root

#100daysofhappy - Day 12 Books

Sometimes my train ride to work can't take too long enough. Not that I don't want to work, I am just so into my book.
I love reading chick lits, literature, fiction, non-fiction etc. Reading is not only fun, it is good for your health as well. Some studies have shown that reading can actually improve the overall quality of your life.

Some fun facts:

  • If you read a lot, your likely to remember more and learn something new every day
  • Reading can lower the risk at getting Alzheimer's disease
  • A book can help you relax
  • A research carried out by the University of Toronto suggest that reading fiction helps you to be more open-minded and boasts your creative thinking
  • Reading expands your memory
  • By reading a lot you expand your vocabulary, making you sound like a genius ;)
Happy reading!
