This time will be only 1 week, so please join us!

How to join?

You make smoothie in the morning, take a picture and update your photo on your facebook and share Aya-Papaya RawFood Facebook!

Please share your recipe as well!

Let’s start Lovely spring together!

I will share mine as well! so please check out my facebook!

Start : 4/1     until: 4/7

Some points for smoothie you may know!

1. Drink Green smoothie or Fruits smoothie once a day!

I suggest you to drink smoothie in the morning instead of breakfast. If you eat bread or whatever, drink smoothie first and then eat whatever you want. It helps your nutrients absorption and also digestion.

You can make smoothie only use fruits, but fruits have so much sugar, so I suggest you to put some greens too.

2. Need only Blender, Vegs and Fruits!

I don’t recommend you to add Milk, Soy milk, Yogurt or Honey. You need make smoothie simply so you can digest and easily. Milk and Yogurt make membrane in your stomach which prevent your digestion.

3. Make smoothie just before you drink!

If you can, I recommend you to make smoothie before you drink. Because the vegs and fruits have lots of vitamin, mineral and enzyme. They are the most fresh when you make smoothie, so you can get the energy from the fresh vegs and fruits!

Have a wonderful Spring everyone!

Hi, guys!

Do you eat colorful food? Do you wear colorful clothes?

I’ve been wearing lots of green stuff after starting to drink green smoothie everyday.

It’s not on purpose, maybe my higher consciousness!?

Anyways, what color are you wearing everyday??

COLOR IS ENERGY!

the other day I got nail color from the shop.

It is cherry pink nail!

so today I made PINK smoothie! here we are!

Pink Cabbage + Orange + Banana + water

Isn’t it cute?

beautiful…

We’ve been having guests everyday recently.

and almost everyone says ” feels like you guys are living in this house for long time!”

actually we haven’t lived in this new house even a month yet!

it means our characters are matching with this new house to me!  good to hear that!

the smoothie month has been past half month.

How are you doing?

Have you changed anything?

I’ve changed my habit which I make smoothie every morning! and I lost 2kg since we started this program!

If you wanna lose wight, I suggest you to eat

big salad before eating normal meal!

↑ my salad for other day.

But I eat bigger one recently.

I will show you my big salad bowl next time!

After the salad I eat rice or homemade bread. Yum!

Ok, time to say good night for now.
