A Virtual Tour

Character is a Choice

What is a character and how to build it? Is it a habit, lifestyle or simply coincidence to be born under the lucky star?

Aristotle said, character is what we habitually do. Every step counts. To develop your character, you must KNOW what you want, be WILLING to do it and BECOME able to do it.

Life trail is powerful. Your CHOICE determines your destiny, not a chance. When you become aware of what you want, you automatically empower yourself to the point of achieving anything in life that you want. By simply understanding and defining this, you can make changes in all aspects of your life. It is the beginning of your journey… You can build your character with persistence, education and lots of action. Accept criticism – it will make you stronger. It is a part of your journey towards a strong character and is similar to a long-awaited viewpoint of any hiker.

Sugar-Free Pancakes

I want to share this trustworthy recipe with you. Honestly, these are THE BEST pancakes I have had in my life! Read on to see how to make your fluffy, sugar-free and cloud-like pancakes.

To make the pancakes you will need: 350 g ricotta cheese – 200 ml milk – 4 eggs separated – 125g flour – 1tsp baking powder- 1 pinch of salt – 50 g butter

First, mix ricotta with milk and egg yolks, then add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix together until smooth. In a separate bowl whisk egg whites until cloudy and add them slowly into the batter. Mix with a spoon trying to keep all the air.

Heat a nonstick pan, add a little butter to lightly grease it, pour the batter onto the pan in round shapes. When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip with a spatula and cook until golden.

Serve with honey, maple syrup or fruit!

Forest therapy

Nature is good for you. Not only it improves your health, but also effects thinking and creativity. Studies show that people are happier when they spend time in nature. It certainly reduces the stress level and improves well-being.

Brain-nature relationship is very important. Pay attention to smells, sights and sounds that are directly linked to your emotions. Let your brain take a break and experience the mind-wandering and day-dreaming.

I would like to use this opportunity and invite you for a walk in the woods and exotic farm of Saas Fee…

World’s Healthiest Grain

I usually start off my day with a bowl of porridge, topped with nuts, seeds and fruits. Before I go to bed, I prepare my breakfast for the next day. I soak oats, nuts and seeds overnight. Soaking helps the oat starches break down and increases the vitamin content of your nuts and seeds. Remember, all nuts and seeds contain phytic acid and large amount of enzyme inhibitors which protect them from sprouting. Soaking also makes them much easier to digest and absorbed by your body.

Health Benefits of Oats:

loaded with protein and fibre

rich in antioxidants

great source of vitamins and minerals

energy provider

booster of immune system
