My Summer Bucket List or In Conclusion

This spring I wrote my first summer bucket list (it is pretty short and I didn’t publish it, because I wasn’t sure, if I would have enough time to accomplish each goal before the end of summer).    

Well, I think,.. September, October! is the right time to do it!)) I like to analyze things and make clever (hardly ever) conclusions;)) So, here we go..

                                                          SUMMER BUCKET LIST – CONCLUSION

                                  eat healthier

This summer I had 3 Weeks No Sugar Challenge (no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners). Scientists say: “It takes 21 days to form a new habit” (No, it doesn’t)). Life without chocolate, ketchup, pizza (sugar is hiding everywhere), sweet cup of coffee, pies, packed juice, candies seemed to be horrible and terrifying, but at the end of the second week you feel a “real” taste of food, find a lot of healthy and delicious new products and recipes. After this challenge, I become more sensitive to sugar, so I considerably reduced the amount of it. It is also a good way to be more attentive in your everyday life, to notice what you buy and what you eat.

Summer, Don’t Go or Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Sticks
Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Sticks

Вельмишановний Пан Серпень у моїй уяві завжди постає як дуже ґречний та ошатний добродій, якому вкрай ніяково, ось так швидко (літо ж завжди закінчується раптово!)  і майже без попередження йти зі свята, споглядаючи сумні й розгублені обличчя друзів та родини. Тож на прощання він щедро обдаровує усіх соковитими нектаринами, медовими кавунам та залишає на згадку цей “ricetta”  —рецепт…  Рецепт кабачкових пальчиків, запечених у хрусткій скоринці із пармезану (дядечко ж бо італійський!) 😉 Read more
