I got my new Shampoo and Conditioner Bars delivered!!! I’ve been wanting to shift to non-plastic for a while for personal care but they are not easy to find in Manila. It’s easy for rich countries/people to criticise others for not being environmentally and health conscious, but these are unrealistic demands for people who doesn’t know for how long they have enough to eat. So, I know it’s my privilege to have the choice to make conscious decisions about what I use and consume for the environment.
I wasn’t sure how i would like them though as many clean/eco products are not as effective. To my surprise, I absolutely love them!!! My hair was left clean and smooth.
We got new books, best delivery for Sofia
She has formed quite a library during the pandemic
and I got mine too. Super excited to start the Gratitude Diaries!!!
After the carb-load comma lunch the day before, instead of making burrito bowl, I made a nourishing salad
Nourishing lentil salad
- fresh corns
- chopped tomato
- chopped cucumber
- chopped cilantro
- cooked lentils (with onion, bay leaves and S+P)
- 1 avocado
- homemade hummus
- wine vinegar
- make the dressing: dilute hummus with vinegar and honey but it forms a dressing consistency
- mix the dressing with the chopped veggies
- top with chop avocado
Husband went for second plate so I guess it was good. I truly enjoyed it and didn’t feel sluggish afterwards.
Gratitude: Yesterday, after working hours I got an urgent request that I had to deal with. Husband was in the studio watching a movie. As I came to studio, I asked him to turn off the volume as I needed to focus on something. I didn’t say it politely, more like demanding him. He didn’t get mad at me, turned it off and went to the living to continue watching it in ipad. I am grateful that he was understanding and not making it a big fuss about it.
