Plastic reduction tips

I wanted to write this blogpost for a long time. I don’t think a lot of people are aware of this topic: Plastic. I feel like, every time I start to discuss it with someone, most people just roll with their eyes. They think: Let’s focus on what is actually important, plastic is not on their list.  

I don’t want to sound negative in this post, however I think it is relevant to talk it out. 

The fact is: I try to avoid plastic as much as possible. I’m far away from being a perfect example. My toothbrush is made of plastic. And some foods I buy are wrapped in plastic. My shampoo comes in a plastic bottle.

Still, I find myself turning around in the supermarket in slow motion – and I feel like an alien.

Moist and delicious fat free vegan Bananacake

Ok this is the best vegan fat free Bananacake I've ever made. Even if you are not vegan, even if you don't care about fat, check this out!

The batter alone is so tasty and I love the simplicity of it. Adding cups of liquid butter used to gross me out, so this is my new alternative for a fast and easy cake.

This is actually a diet cake, considering there is no fat in it, I calculated the macros.

Everything has changed. Yoga Teacher Training

I used to think quite different, when someone started to talk about yoga.
Yoga. That weird thing describing an activity somewhere in between Massage, therapy and some Buddhists sitting on round pillows meditating. I didn’t really get the point...

Update: Summer-Hair.

Summer is great in so many ways. But there are also things that suck: Humidity, being drenched in sweat before you even arrive at work and endless heat. I used to wear my hair in a bun most of the time. In the office, the only hairstyle I could do, was a half-up, half-down where you divide your hair into two parts and the upper part is put together in a little pony tail. My biggest challenge: I have a little crown on my front part that doesn't allow me to have bangs or wear my hair down.

New day new week! 
Just watched the solar eclipse outside! It was a mystic atmosphere even though it didn't get as dark as I expected. 
What are your goals this week? 
I start the week with a rest day. Sitting in the office, and later stretching myself with a little bit of yin yoga #mobilitymonday

Currently I'm not happy with what I do when it comes to zero waste. I could do more. We all could do more.
Here are some shocking facts about plastic:
- a plastic bag is used no longer than 11 minutes
- plastic takes 500 years to dissolve
- there are over 100 Mio. tons (1 ton = 1000kg) of plastic in the oceans
- plastic contains a softener called BPA (bisphenol A) which is cancerous

Please take your time and read the new blogpost up on my page, there are tips for what you can do NOW to reduce the use of plastic. (Up in English ð¬ð§ and german ð©ðª - Link in bio)

I love these evenings at home on my mat, stretching my legs and my back. It's the best thing ever, the recovery of a workout is so much faster! 
My yoga studio rewarded one year membership with a little giftcard, so I got myself a couple yoga blocks. Omg, one year practicing almost every second day at @sempervivayoga - im really grateful to have found a great studio like this. My goal: working into the full split! I'll keep you updated on that. 
If you are looking for good quality yoga props, definitely check out @halfmoon_yoga - they might seem pricier, but you get yoga props that will last a long time!

Update to my account: I changed my name. I was thinking about that for a while, now I finally did it. âRawtillclifbar WAS the perfect name for me. I named myself like that because I followed the rawtill4 lifestyle where you don't eat anything cooked for breakfast and lunch (basically you eat fresh fruits ð) and have a cooked dinner. Also, I had at least one clifbar a day. If you don't know clifbars, don't buy them, because they are highly addictive (especially the ones you get in North America). Clifbars still are my best company on a long bikeride and clifbars are my first answer if someone asks me where I get my b12 from. âNow I don't follow the rawtill4 lifestyle anymore. I have cereal or oatmeal in the morning. I have leftovers for lunch. My lifestyle has changed. I don't exercise as much anymore as I used to, therefore I need less fuel.
The second reason I was thinking about changing my name was the fact that I started to practice yoga. On a daily basis. Did a couple teacher trainings. I started meditating. 
Long story short: I needed a change on this profile. I'm representing so much more than food or yoga. I didn't want to label myself anymore with veganism or anything else in particular. As James Aspey said in his speech: you reach far more people with a positive message if you surround yourself with everyone, not just an exclusive group of people. People tend to judge you if you label yourself, so give them the chance to get to know you so you can inspire them. Jileila is the nickname my  uncle gave me, and I used this name for over 10 years in my email address. However, I will from now on leave my full real name in my profile.
âThe general message, I want to spread on this Account is to be aware. Being aware means paying attention to what is going on (in your body, in your relationship, in the world). Like my yoga teacher used to say: to pay attention is the goal in order to pay intention. First we need to wake up in order to understand what we have to change to improve and grow.

New german Blogpost is up on my website. Right now, you can get these 8 spreads (organic, vegan) for 6.99⬠instead of 20⬠regular in the organic supermarket. (Shipping all over Europe!)
Check it out, food saving is so important as still so much food gets thrown away. ---------
ð©ðª*Werbung / Ãberproduktion ist ein Thema, was leider häufig vorkommt in der Bio Branche. Für mich ist das sehr schockierend, weil gesunde, pflanzliche Bioprodukte schlieÃlich oft einfach weggeworfen werden (während auf der anderen Seite der Welt Menschen verhungern). Jetzt kann sich wirklich jeder Bio leisten: Ãber veggie Specials könnt ihr diese acht Brotaufstriche nun viel günstiger bekommen, für unter 7⬠statt regulär 19⬠im Bioladen (ab 30⬠innerhalb Europa versandkostenfrei, sonst 3â¬). Keine Sorge, die Aufstriche sind noch mindestens 2 Monate haltbar. Der Link zu allen weiteren Infos ist in meiner Bio. Ach ja mit dem Rabattcode "A33XS5" spart ihr 5% auf eure Bestellung!
