Saaremaa + Boost Yourself

There’s no better job I could ask for. Cause I can say, that my job is my hobby. Working for Boost Yourself is a blessing from God. First started as collaboration manager, but now I also do their Instagram and bit of client support. I have been doing that for 6 months now. Also when I was travelling around, because I can do my job from where ever I want to do it.

And as Boost Yourself is celebrating its 2nd birthday. We were all called over to Saaremaa and I finally had the chance to meet everyone else on the team.

Alina and I flew over to Saaremaa… and that was the coolest plane ride I have ever had.

We got to stay in GOSPA hotel and my boss Teet immediately brought us smoothies from Fresh smoothie bar. For a lunch, we all got together and later we had a meeting in our new office.

This is the first team photo in our new office and hopefully not the last one. Two of our co-workers managed to flee before the photo was taken. After our business meetings were done and official part was over, we went to discover Saaremaa.

One must go place is definitely Cafe Retro in the centre of Kuressaare. They have the best fish burger, craft beer and kombucha. And the fish they serve is freshly caught.

On Wednesday, we drove out from Kuressaare to see more of this beautiful island.

In the end, we managed to some photos with our products and smoothies.

Another good cafe we visited was Good Mood Food. The cafe was placed in the owner’s backyard, which was gorgeous with lots of plants and good atmosphere. We chose to eat their most famous beetroot burger and sweet potato chips.

We really can’t wait to go back to Saaremaa, it’s a really nice getaway from the big city and the food is just amazing.

From dying to shining

Have you ever felt like you’re just slowly dying from inside out? And there’s nothing you can do about it.

Until suddenly there comes the day when everything changes and you feel free from the bargain you were carrying.

But on that day you have to ask yourself, are you really ready to step out of the comfort zone?

I know I wasn’t. I had the right mindset at the wrong time.

My day was exactly two years ago. The day I stopped physically dying. I got a new chance at living and when everyone else around my hospital bed was crying I was the one who kept making jokes and smiling. My weak body made my spirit stronger.

Everything inside me changed, but my life stayed the same, I got well, went back to school and again went with the flow. Even I’m impressed that I was fine for two years. I did try looking for new ways to study abroad or at least charge something.

Until now, which brings me to the point why I suddenly left my hometown and home. Quit school and started working on the things that are really important to me. And now I’m wondering around the world, doing the things I love and being the person I really want to be.

So, thank you, mamma, for sitting on my bed that morning and saying: “There are only two ways to live your life, SHINE OR DIE.”

7-Day Smoothie Challenge – One Smoothie a Day

 

It’s the most amazing feeling to start my blog about Boost Yourself, the same way I started my year. Boost is my family and I couldn’t imagine otherwise.

For the ones who don’t know yet, Boost Yourself produces superfood blends for smoothies. All the blends contain ingredients that I just can’t get from anywhere else.

For instance, Workout blend has baobab in it which helps to raise my iron levels.

Last week I took part of the Boost Yourself 7-day smoothie challenge. There was only one rule, I had to replace one of my daily meals with a smoothie.

To make it more varied, I chose different meal times and blends every day. Some days I made up a random recipe and just enjoyed my mixed smoothie. On other days, I went for my favourite smoothies and I will share some of my best recipes here as well.

I’m really into green smoothies and that’s why I like to use my Detox blend a lot.  Some say that Detox blend has a strong Spirulina taste  but I still seem to enjoy it.

Green Detox recipe

  •  1/3 Cucumber 
  • 1 x Apple
  • Handful of Spinach
  • 1 x Banana
  • 1 x Orange (if you want your smoothie to be sweeter then add more oranges)
  • 1 x Glass of water
  • 1 tbsp Detox blend (or more  for the stronger taste)

This recipe became my favourite from the day my dear cousin Katie came to visit us and shared her smoothie recipes. I just added the Boost Yourself Detox blend which made the overall taste even better.

I do love Boost Yourself challenges because they remind me to be consistent with my healthy living. I have now taken part of their two challenges and I can’t wait for the next one.

Are you up for a smoothie challenge?
