The chaos of the city, work, school… Like everyone else, we get pretty tired trying to get through the day. Even though we try to be nice to our bodies and try to make healthier choices, it is almost impossible to avoid foods that we don’t even know the ingredients of. And usually we gravitate towards snack food to spoil ourselves but in the meantime we upset our bodies. We have been feeling very worn out and exhausted lately and although we believe that our bodies can do self-cleaning, we decided to help our bodies, put an end to our current habits and make some changes. This decision helped us meet Juico. The concept of Juice Cleanse has been gaining a lot of popularity internationally. And two businesswomen, Sedef and Deniz, have carried this trend to Turkey and helped us out in our experience. We are sharing our 2-day Juico Urban experience for those who share our thoughts and who do not have any idea what cleanse is and are afraid to try. Take a …
The word of “aperitivo” is derived from the Latin word “aperire”, meaning “to open”, and it stands for low alcohol beverages that are consumed before dinner. The history of aperitivo starts with Antonio Benedetto Carpano to produce modern Vermut in 1786 and thinking that it would be a more suitable drink for women then wine. This trend became very popular in Italy in 19th century, spread throughout all Europe at the end of the 19th century and then to America. And got its current shape with “happy hour”, the period of time in which Americans serve free/discounted snacks.

People wake up early; they either prepare coffee by using mocha at their houses or they stop by a cafe on their way, where they probably visit every morning, and order a “caffè”. They don’t waste time while drinking coffee, they don’t like sitting too much; they finish up their espresso in a blink of an eye and move on with their daily to-do’s. The delicious and strong flavored espresso, only filling a half of a little cup, that consumed every morning is probably the reason why Italians are folks full with such an energy. 🙂
As a couple, one our favorite things in this world is food. Neither new or traditional, trying out new tastes, chasing great food is our passion. That’s why we love the blog’s Chasing Wonders of Great Taste part, it’s even more precious for us. 🙂 Chasing Wonders of Great Taste’s first topic is the common passion of us which is Italian ice cream, gelato. Gelato takes its original Italian name from the Latin language word, “gelātus” which means frozen. Therefore containing min 3.5% butter inside and having a different process of preparation than the ice cream itself, it’s especially called gelato mostly in US. During our time in Milano we tried out lots of gelatos, listed the best gelaterias in town and highlighted the most-loved tastes;
