A bit about food (It´s my 100th post! Yay! :)

Good morning!
Lets start it with some appetising food pictures :)
Some evenings I don´t feel like preparing food, so I just eat all kind of tasty things - grapes, oranges, carrots, yoghurt with muesli and frozen berries and here you can see a mug full of water with lemon.

Had this fulfilling lunch at school´s cafe - buckwheat, vegetables, dill and beetroot with garlic

Prepared a bigger amount of muesli. Wanted to have it crunchy, so roasted it slightly, added raisins, nuts and small pieces of dark chocolate and put into a jar for upcoming days.

Here you can see, what I usually bring to school with me, when I have two lectures - I want to eat something between them!

I have been eating so many oranges recently...almost every morning starts with one as they are so juicy and tasty right now.

Tried something new. It´s a usual oatmeal, just made with chocolate soya milk. It was alright, but I liked it more with vanilla soya milk.

And another snack - blueberry yoghurt with a few spoonfuls of muesli and frozen berries <3

What was the last thing you ate? :)

Top 3(6) books this summer

Good evening :)
This post has been waiting to be published for some time, but here it is now.
Go ahead, grab a cup of tea and read about books I recommend you to read next, if you have not read them yet.

Thanks to summer vacation I have had more time to read books and believe me, I appreciate that I can read books on my own choice right now as I know this will change in autumn, when new interesting things are waiting for me.
1. "Nisa" by Marjorie Shostak. Before I went to an entrance exam to university, I had to read one book and an article. There were 3 choices of books and that is the one I picked. And I am so glad I discovered this book, it was truly an interesting book to read. It was written by an American anthropologist Marjorie Shostak and was published in 1981. Marjorie went to to live with !kung people, get to know their culture and interview people there. She learned their language before going in order to be able to talk to these people by herself.
Nisa is a name of a !kung woman whose memories are mostly in this book (but the name has been changed, so no one would really know, about who it is).
It just seems so unbelievable, how people used to live there! !Kung people´s life seems to be primary, but also interesting in its own way.

2. My next recommendation is actually a series of books called Hannah Swensen series, which were written by Joanne Fluke. I have read first 4 books, but there are all together 19 (!) books released by now!
