NAPROTI ZDRAVJU / TOWARDS HEALTH

Za nami je dokaj naporen in napet teden, vključno z dvema obiskoma urgence - mojim in tastovim. Zdaj smo bolje, samo potrebnih bo pa nekaj sprememb in vsi se še učimo. Tastu so namreč ugotovili sladkorno bolezen in zdaj čakamo, če bo uspešna terapija s tabletami in dieto ali pa bodo potrebni še drugi ukrepi.

Tast si večinoma sicer kuha sam ampak tudi midva z možem se bova seznanila s pravili in omejitvami. In tako se že drugi teden oziroma vikend zapored ukvarjamo s hrano.

Prejšnji vikend smo začeli s projektom domačih kosil za Manumajčico št.1, ki se kar ni in ni sprijaznila s šolsko prehrano in smo jo zato odjavili. Zdaj vsak dan dobi malico za v šolo, ko pridemo domov pa naj bi ji čim prej postregla kosilo. In tako sem dva dni pripravljala in kuhala in do zadnjega kotička napolnila skrinjo. Za nami so trije šolski dnevi in minili so brez težav.

Seveda sem veliko razmišljala tudi o malicah za v šolo in poiskala veliko receptov in možnosti kaj bi ji lahko pripravljala.

Zdaj pa poslušam o prehrani pri sladkorni bolezni in povsod vidim samo sladkor in moko in oglijkove hidrate in se mi vsi recepti kar naenkrat zazdijo nezdravi.

Nato si ogledujem slike, ki jih imam pripravljene za objave in spet vidim samo sladkor...

In zdaj se mi po glavi podijo najrazličnejše misli. Kaj je dovoljeno, kaj je pretirano, koliko še vseeno lahko? In ko razmišljam o zaužitih sladkarijah in ogljikovih hidratih v našem gospodinjstvu me kar malo zaskrbi.

Samo, ko so pa tako dobri.

Zato danes ne bom napisala nobenega recepta za novo dobroto (definitivno pa recepti še pridejo, saj se vseeno ne mislim popolnoma odpovedat sladkarijam), ampak vam bom pokazala nakupovalno torbo, ki je dovolj velika, da lahko v njej domov prinesete vse zdrave sestavine za zdrave in polnovredne obroke.




We had quite a stressful and tense week, including two visits to the ER – mine and my father in laws. Now we are better, but we will have to learn some new things and make some changes. Father in law is in fact diagnosed with diabetes and now we're waiting, if the pills and diet will do the trick or some other measures will be needed.

Father in law prepares the majority of meals himself, but also my husband and I must know the rules and restrictions. And so we have another week revolving around food.

Last weekend we started the project of home lunches for Manugirl No.1. She just could not get used to the school meals and was frequently hungry. Now I give her a snack to take to school and try to serve her lunch as soon as possible after coming home. It took me two days last weekend to prepare and cook and my freezer is now packed.

I was also thinking a lot what snacks can I give her to school and found a lot of delicious recipes.

Now, hearing about the diet in diabetes everywhere I look I only see sugar and flour and carbohydrates and all the recipes suddenly seem so unhealthy.

Then I look at the pictures that I have prepared for posting and again all I see is sugar...

Now so many different thoughts are going through my mind. What is allowed, what is too much, how much is still OK? And when I think about all the sweets and carbohydrates that we consume in our household I am quite worried.

But they are so good.


Therefore, today I will not post a recipe for a new goodness (but definitely recipes are still to come, because I am not going to completely give up sweets), but I'll show you a shopping bag. This shopping bag is enough to bring home all the healthy ingredients you will need for a healthy and wholesome meal.

NOVI ZAČETKI / NEW BEGINNINGS

Danes je prvi dan novega leta. Čas za nove začetke, za nove sklepe, za nove načrte...

Jaz se držim načela, da novoletnih sklepov ali zaobljub ne delam, saj so potem samo vzrok za slabo vest ob koncu leta. Vseeno pa se človek ob novi letnici ozre nazaj in malo premisli o starem letu.

Kljub temu, da je nekaj stvari ostalo nerealiziranih oziroma mi niso uspele, pa sem načeloma kar zadovoljna z dosežki leta 2013.
Kot najpomembnejšega lahko izpostavim registracijo in legalizacijo svojega hobija. Zadeva je sicer po treh mesecih še vedno bolj kot ne v povojih, saj mi čas ne dopušča večje aktivnosti, ampak prvi korak je bil narejen.
Zdaj pa sem seveda vedno na lovu za novimi idejami in nastajajo različni prototipi.

In tako je na deževen dan med prazniki nastal nov šal, ki je premiero doživel na včerajšnjem izletu, čeprav je glede na osnovni material (tkanina iz mešanice bombaža in lanu) bolj poletni modni dodatek.

Če bodo odzivi pozitivni, jih bo nastalo še več, v različnih barvnih odtenkih, mogoče pa še v kakšnem drugem materialu.




Today is the first day of the New Year. Time for new beginnings, for new resolutions, new plans...

I tend not to make New Year's resolutions, because they only cause bad conscience at the end of the year. However, it is time to look back and reflect on the old year.

Despite the fact that some things remain unrealized or I have failed at some things, but in general I am quite satisfied with the achievements of 2013.
The most important is probably the registration and legalization of my hobby. I am moving at a very slow pace, but at least I am moving.
Now I am constantly on the hunt for new ideas and making prototypes.

And so I made a new scarf on a rainy day during the holidays. I wore it yesterday for the first time, even though it is more a summer accessory, because it is made of a cotton – flax blend.


If I get positive feedback, I will make more, in a variety of colors, maybe even in another material.
