Nutritious pancakes & banana ice cream

There are times you crave sweet or other sugary food even if they are forbidden from your diet, so I decided to share with you a couple of recipes in order to make your nutrition more enjoyable. Below there are two recipes of my favorite breakfast, which I hope will be your favorite too!                               

                  Pancake Recipe
Ingredients:
  • 100-200gr Oats or Whole Wheat Flour
  • 200ml of skimmed milk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon  cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon stevia powder instead of sugar
  • 1 whey protein scoop -usually vanilla or chocolate- (optional)
Directions:
Put the oats into a blender and cut them till you make a kind of flour. 
Put all the other ingredients in a shaker and shake them well in order to get well-mixed. Then add the oat flour or the whole wheat flour into the shaker and shake again. Our mixture is ready. Pour a little bit in a frying pan (without oil or butter) and wait till your pancake gets fried. Repeat the same process untill they are finally ready.

                       Banana ice cream
Ingredients:
  • 2 bananas 
  • 3 tablespoons skimmed milk
Directions:
Slice the bananas and put them into the freeze for 5 hours. When they are ready put them in the blender, add the milk and blend. Too easy!!

After they are both ready pour the mousse on your pancakes and enjoy!!!
You'd better make these for breakfast because they  include a large of portion of carbs and especially proteins!!Thats a perfect meal to start your day and don't forget it's way better than eating sweet for breakfast!!! Give it a shot!

My new GoPro hero 3+ black edition


Just before a week i bought my first ever GoPro cam. I searched a lot only in order to make a decision and i decided to buy the latest model with is the GoPro hero 3+ black edition. Gopro cameras are excellent for filming extreme sports and generally producing great image at low cost and small size.

As you know im filming a lot of capoeira and tricking video thats why i thought gopro cam was the cam for me.It also gave me so many ideas for future videos that i just wish i had the time :) 

So technical speaking the latest model is 

20% smaller and lighter than its best-selling predecessor, it delivers improved image quality and powerful new features geared for versatility and convenience. SuperView™ is a new video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide angle perspective, while Auto Low Light mode intelligently adjusts frame rate for stunning low-light performance. Combined with 30% longer battery life, 4x faster Wi-Fi, a sharper lens and compatibility with all GoPro mounts and accessories, the HERO3+ Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro yet.


It can shoot videos up to 4k resolution and shoots photos up to 12mp. It also has a great burst photo mode and time lapse mode for making great videos.

It also has in-built wifi so that you can connect your photo through GoPro app to the camera and control it though there.

Battery life is about 1 hour and 30 mins while filming in 1080p. 



Best matched with a 32gb or 64gb sd card. You can also check my youtube video on my unboxing :)

Essential Pre and Post workout meals!

Hey all :) I'm very often asked what i eat before workout and after workout. So I'm will try and write some of the most usual foods i eat, with the best results in my opinion. 

1)To start its essential to load yourself with carbs before workout workout.Carbs as i mentioned in one of my previous articles Basic about carbs are the ingredient that gives you strenght during your training and throughout the day!

2)After workout its also essential to eat carbs and protein. Carbs will help you regain your lost energy, while they are easily absorbed after your workout.Try to eat carbs with no extra sugar fats like chocolate and prefer carbs from foods like rice full of dietary fibers.Protein will help you with muscle recovery so that your muscles recover faster and become stronger with time.

-->With that being said im gonna post what i do and what i eat :) I will divide them into Post and Pre foods but to tell you the truth some of them i eat them post and pre so will not mention them twice!!


Pre Workout : Im not a fan of pre-workout supplements so NO pre-workout supplements just pre-workout foods..(With enough feedback i can also write an article about them).Also before workout i eat lighter that after cause i dont want my system to be distracted to my stomach than my muscles. 

Bananas : I eat 1 banana cause its an energy Bomb :) Carbs,Easily digested and with no fats thats what you want to eat :






Toasted bread with honey or just a spoon of honey : Eat 1-2 pieces and you will facing Beast mode ;)
Toasted Bread
Honey Spoon


Sesame seed with honey (Pasteli) : Thats THE Bomb...Full with carbs calories and Protein. But dont get my wrong eat only 1/2 or 1/4 otherwise you are gonna get heavy during your workout.




Post Workout: Eat your Brains out!! Just fill yourself with foods your system need it.

So im also eating Bananas: 



Sesame seed with Honey(pasteli) again.. : This time eat it all !! Enjoy it..Let the carbs and the protein inside your system.Get it pumped and add those calories.They are easily digested and your body will be thankful!!

Yogurt: That's right eat 200g of 2% fat yogurt and you got your proteins for the night:

Eggs : Of Course Eggs!! Again and again!!

Rice: A bowl of rice will get you going for hours and its perfect for your body to recover.


Protein Shake: Yes you can take supplements but nothing is like food. So keep that in mind (Definately will make an article on this one ).

Jacobina Arte Batizado in Larisa !!

So what is Batizado?? 

Batizado” literally means baptism.

 In Capoeira, a batizado is an initiation ceremony where students have the opportunity to demonstrate their skill alongside advanced students in the Capoeira roda and be taken to the ground by a master or advanced student in celebration of their membership within their respective group or association...

Though all school members traditionally participate in the Batizado and Troca de Cordas event, a Capoeira student has only one batizado. Students receiving new colored cord rankings take part in the troca de cordas, or changing of cords ceremony, that accompanies the batizado. 
Schools hosting a batizado will often invite multiple mestres, instructors, and graduated students to visit their event and participate in seminars, rodas, performances, and the batizado itself. Batizados give both students and teachers alike the opportunity to share knowledge, ideas, and movements, as well as interact with, learn from, and play Capoeiristas from other schools and groups. 
It is universally recognized in Capoeira that traveling to different events and gaining experience training and playing with different groups and masters is very beneficial, if not integral to the development of a Capoeira player. Most groups strongly encourage and even require students to travel to different batizados once they reach an advanced rank. 
So here is a video of my personal experience in Larisas 1st Batizado of groupo Jacobina Arte. We meet several capoeirastas with great skills and had the pleasure to play with them :) So check it out

What to eat between your main meals Part 1

So people ask me all the time what do i eat through out the day in order to have energy and maintain my weight and my gains. Also what i eat is a great way to lose weight and also get the most out of your food. I'm talking about protein,carbs,vitamins and minerals



To begin with after 2-3 hours of my breakfast i eat fruits- Bananas to get energy,Apples,oranges and basically every fruit that's in my fridge :) I usually eat 2-3 fruits a time. That way i get my vitamins,energy,fibers and I'm filling full :) 


 Now after 2-3 hours after midday meal and depending whether i will or not go to the gym i eat something that will keep me through the day. So I'm eating toasted bread (φριγανιες) with honey, turkey slices 1-2, a boiled egg or fruits again :P

SEXercise ;)

 So its final our first Poll is over :) Here are the results



As you can see most of you Answered Sex as your favourite type of workout!! So here is an article to prove you that sex can be an effective exercise :) 


Who said that only by working your asses out is going to help keeping fit? Sex does too! People don't usually know about the beneficial effects of it, so I decided to enlighten this topic, shrouded in mystery.

 First of all by having sex you make a lot of your body muscles work because of the variety of positions. As a result, you keep your body in shape due to the fact that a large number of calories gets burnt.

Furthermore, in men - body testosterone levels increase. This means that the next day they are going to have more strength during the workout. So sex for us is something like a natural steroid. Not only is it a testo-booster but it also builds up stamina! Sex is a strong cardio exercise which can improve the endurance of our heart. When he have "sexy time" our heart beats faster so we burn fat! 



Finally, it's important to make clear that sex is a way of communication between a male and a female, it establishes in a way the "domination" of the man on the woman, in other words it gives to males what they want to feel and of course to females. It fills them with a sense of safety in their man's hands. This process is very significant for the psychological and mental health for both sexes.


In conclusion it would be good to point out that having sex is good and nice and natural BUT we must do this responsibly(using condoms). So now that you know a little bit more about sex...have fun and don't forget working out cannot replace sex, it can only make it better ;)
