Prosciutto Arugula Pizza

DSC_0629CoverCover (Pizza without feta cheese and vinaigrette.)

Homemade, fresh with tons of flavors, thats how I describe my signature pizza. For all the pizza lovers out there curbing calories sometimes is essential, besides flavors pizza is also known for having  too much fat, thats when you’ve got to be creative and instead of  high-fat ingredients, choose those tasty one yet with fewer calories. I’ve made this pizza about 7 times, the last time choose a gluten free shell, it tasted weird, but it is your pizza, thus, the shell choice is yours. You can even make your pizza dough, just keep in mind it is going to take much more time. Total prep time if already have the shell/crust is 15 – 20 min. I’ve posted the process on my SnapChat history, got a lot of questions today most of your questions are going to be answered down below, just keep reading.

The Art of Learning


By the picture you must be wondering yourself what a bowl with vegetables rice and fish got something to do with the title, for me, got everything. Just recently I’ve learned how to make sushi rolls, one of my favorite dishes, before i know how to do it I thought it was a hard task but my cravings motivated me to learn how to do it and as I have been practicing it has become easier and I’m quicker at doing it. For some reason I feel like people are too lazy to creative, think outside of the box, learning new and different skills. The new generation thinks “I am going to get someone to get this done”, truth is the more people do things for you, the less you learn and the richer that person becomes in knowledge. There will always be things that we dont know how to do and there is no way we would have time to do it because we are not interested or we are just busy doing more important things at that specific time of our lives, but for the things we love there is always time, or

There are two simple ways to learn a new skill, 1. Wanting  it and 2. GIVE A TRY. Wanting it is the easiest part our imagination is always active, people spend nearly half of their time daydreaming but putting things in action is the most difficult part. Give a try to that new venture is not the most difficult part of the process, but for many of us discouragement hits the door when it comes to anything new. I’ve been there, and to be honest this is just the beginning because the challenge part is when, one tries, gives his best and still not getting the desired results. Getting the lesson might be the most frustrating part about learning, but as I quote I read says “When you haven’t learned a lesson, life will find a way to to play it on repeat”. Enjoying the process might make things less complicated.

Reasons I like to learn

  1. Knowledge is power.
  2. It excites me – Being the curious type is awesome, you guys can’t imagine how many times I feel like a nerd or  a genius in the middle of something, thats how excited I get.
  3. Opens my mind – a mind that is stretch by a new experience, never goes back to its old dimensions”. This quote says everything.
  4. Gives me confidence – I feel that I can talk about anything to anyone, I feel sure of myself and I think that it kinda makes me look interesting, I know its beautiful to see a female that is smart and knows how to talk.
  5. Blocks my creative blocks – Creative people have creative blocks, all the time. As an artist I feel uninspired often, to boost my mind, I read articles, look at pictures, watch documentaries, or just have a simple/random conversation with someone. This works like a trade of powers, you give a bit of you so I can give a bit of the best I have.
  6. Makes life less boring.
  7. I get by easily – Imagine yourself going to a country that speaks portuguese and you know how to speak it , even though portuguese is your not your native language, you will have the ability to communicate more with other people, from different cultures.
  8. I got more to give – You can’t just give to people what you don’t have, in order to give  you must first acquire.
  9. Makes me want to learn more – Like a vicious-cicle, the need to improve is vital, to know more,  to learn more is endless.

On the book 9 Things Successful People Do the author says “… if you can’t master a ability that doesn’t mean you can’t do it, it means you just don’t know it yet”. As I said, I thought making such was a very complex art but as a human-being, I speak for me personally, I feel the desire to explore myself as much as I can, of course all things can’t be done at the same time, at same moment, week, even on that year, but for me there comes a time of our lives we get bored easily, we feel stuck and this is the exactly time we should be jumping into something new. Getting into this experience, open up our minds, expand our views, learning, will comes from so many ways; books, friends, adventures, school, hobbies, even through our bad life experiences. Bottom line is we must give ourselves, that is the only way we can learn.



Top 9 Beauty Foods: How to Get the Glow From Within


So, I was reading this article on Lulu’s blog and all I can say right now is THEY WORK, we are constantly being advertised to buy products that sometimes doesn’t really work for us, and we end up buying things that we don’t really need but to be honest, as it says on the title you can get the glow from within. Why I say They Work? 8 months from now I changed my diet and this are basically the foods I have in my fridge, fruits, vegetables, nuts and I drink much more water than before, my skin looks wonderful. As I said in previous posts, if you want the skin of your dreams you have to start with your nutrition, this is way more important than all these fancy products you see on commercials. If you change the way you eat, you are also changing your life, not just because of a beautiful skin but you change your mood, the way you see yourself, you feel better, everything just comes from withing.

Read the article below for more clarification.


They say that you are what you eat and that beauty comes from the inside out…well both are true! Being the largest organ in the body, the skin is an immediate indication whether or not someone is healthy. And healthy is, well, beautiful! Sure you can use all kinds of ointments and treatments topically, but there’s no way you’re going to get that deep, clear glow from the outside in. So here are our top favorite skin-friendly foods to help you eat yourself beautiful!

1: Water: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! We can’t say it enough. With our bodies being made mostly of water, this one seems like a no-brainer but it’s the one people tend to overlook the most. Being one of the cheapest and most effective ways to get beautiful skin, drinking your eight daily glasses will not only flush your skin of toxins, but keep you looking vibrant, young, and radiant.

2: Coconut: Coconut oil is full of Vitamin E, which is about the most moisturizing and nourishing thing you can give your skin. Vitamin E combats skin-aging free radicals, protects skin from sun damage due to UV-sunlight-generated free radicals, and holds in moisture to make your skin appear younger and more supple. Coconut is great externally too and can be used as a frizz-decreasing hair mask or as an ultra moisturizing alternative to shaving cream.

3: Avocado: Chock full of vitamins A, C,  E, and monounsaturated fats, avocados assist in keeping skin soft, supple, and super moisturized.  They’re not only good for your eyes, heart, brain, and skin, but they even contain amazing regenerative properties that help fight cancer. You can slice them up and toss them in a salad or on top of your morning eggs, but we like to eat ours with a spoon (and a sprinkle of sea salt)!

We couldn’t include all the amazing benefits we love about avocados, so you can check out more here: 25 Amazing Skin & Hair Benefits of Avocados

4: Leafy Greens: From kale to spinach, fresh leafy greens basically contain an entire alphabet of vitamins (A, B complex, C, E and K), and manganese, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, protein, folate, and phosphorus to boot! These vitamins help your skin produce more fresh new cells and get rid of the old ones, keeping your skin looking bright and radiant. Whip up a fresh spinach salad for lunch and decrease your risk for wrinkles as well as cancer.

5:  Dark Chocolate: An excuse to eat more chocolate? Yes, please! But make sure it’s dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa content. Not only will it help improve your mood, but it contains a range of antioxidants that help improve complexion, keep skin looking smooth and younger, and help provide protection against the harmful UV rays of the sun. Boasting more antioxidants than blueberries, green tea, and red wine, this sweet treat should definitely be a part of your daily beauty routine.

6: Blueberries: These sweet superfoods are totally packed with antioxidants (Vitamin E and C) and phytochemicals that not only help repair damaged tissues, but help protect our skin tissues from further harm and premature aging. These make a great addition to your morning oatmeal or a fresh salad. Other berries such as raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries also provide similar benefits.

7: Almonds: Almonds are high in antioxidants that help detoxify and beautify your skin and are another great source of Vitamin E, which is basically our favorite skin-nourishing vitamin! These make a great protein-packed snack

8: Sweet Potato: Not only are they loaded with fiber (basically your body’s internal scrub brush) but they are one of the top sources for beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant that helps repair and renew your skin to give it that youthful glow. Bake these in the oven and top with salsa and sour cream for a blood sugar stabilizing and mood enhancing meal.

9: Salmon: This lean meat contains zinc and omega-3 fatty acids that, with consistent intake, can reduce dryness and inflammation, prevent skin from aging fast,  and fight eczema, acne, and psoriasis. Plus, foods with high protein can help to speed up the skin’s natural healing process. Spritz with lemon and a sprinkle of dill before throwing on the BBQ for the perfect summer meal.

Salmon with Avocado & Poached Egg

editedDSC_0390 copy

This meal is very simple to do, light weight and is packed with lots of nutrients, which have many benefits on overall health. The salmon avocado egg is one of my favorite to go dishes, I eat this at least once or twice a week and my metabolism works pretty fast, especially if I drink a lot of water. Well, I failed on doing the poached egg, well, was just an attempt but the dish was really delicious anyway, and the flavors were all there.

Remember, this is a portion for one person.

  1. Season the salmon the way you like, I used salt, cayenne pepper, chives and lemon pepper, give the salmon a nice rub, and cover in aluminum paper 2. Place the salmon in the oven 400 degrees temperature and let it cook for 20 minutes 3. Cut avocado in slices, I used half avocado 4. Chop Red and green onions for topping 5. On top of the unwrapped salmon put the red onions, then the poached egg and the green onions on top of it.
