Orange-apple vitamin shot

Have you noticed that when there is too much stuff surrounding you, it's inevitable to start feeling sick, depressed or generally in a negative mood? Well, that's how lack of empty (aka well thought out) space affects me. I mostly don't think about it though and simply throw out whatever I deem unnecessary. If I have to be completely objective, all I need is a bed, a table and a chair, but let's not get too literal. :) Then, I started reading on Feng Shui. Very interesting and occasionally entertaining philosophy, I tell ya. Some of the principles I don't particularly agree with or find bothersome, but the few points, I consider spot on are:

- all clutter should be removed
- one's home should be properly and regularly maintained (cleaning and repairing)

these two being the most important for me with regard to energy flow and simply feeling good about your personal space.

Are there any Feng Shui geeks around you?

Talking about energy, today's been a pretty successful day for getting some more vitamins. Rema 1000 (a store chain) offers 2 kg oranges for 10 kr ($ 1.76). Hooray! To make it more fun and flavorful (also adding a few more vitamins in the mix), I added an apple and made an orange-apple drink. Delicious!!!


3 oranges
1 apple
1/2 t. sp. cinnamon 
1/2 t. sp. vanilla sugar


1. Squeeze the oranges.
2. Juice the apples. (I don't have a juicer here, so I shave them and then squeeze the juice with my hands.)
3. Mix all the ingredients together in a jar and shake them well. 

Enjoy! :)


  1. Yum! I love orange juice. It has been my favourite since I was a kid.

    1. Me too, but it's a more recent discovery. :)

  2. Marie, the color of this drink is amazing! Great photos!

  3. Вкусно, витаминозно и много цветно питие, Мари! :)

  4. "I shave them and then squeeze the juice with my hands"

    Well, that's ingenious... You know, it sounds so obvious but I never would have thought of that myself... haha, thanks for the tip :)

    Great take on orange juice - never tried it with cinnamon before... bet it's a great flavour :)

    1. Hehe... one has got to be resourceful, right?! Yup, I have to say I was quite pleased how it turned out with the cinnamon. :)
