Confessions of a healthy foodie

Random facts about myself I could easily live on acai bowls and home made granola. A creamy and delicious acai bowl is one of the best healthy snacks there is.  I need my morning coffee. I wish I was more of a tea person. Yes, I enjoy a cup of tea (preferably in the evening) but mornings are for coffee and only coffee. I’m really picky with food. I need my food to be fresh, always checking the expiring dates on the packages. And I would say I’m a soulful eater – I only eat the stuff that I fancy at the moment. I would never bother to plan weekly meals since I have no idea what I like to eat beforehand. My favourite berry is blueberry. I used to have the biggest sweet tooth. I guess it got better after switching to a more plant based diet. I still enjoy dark chocolate, home made raw food bars and dates.  I’m obsessed with MSM-powder. And why wouldn’t I be? It makes my hair grow faster. …

Sunday

Sunday morning in bed. I woke up way too early. But why sleep when you can have breakfast and enjoy the early hours. Black coffee and banana porridge. I’m deeply in love with Sundays. This banana porridge is super easy to make. You just cook gluten free oats with unsweetened almond milk, a mashed banana and cinnamon. Serve with berries, nuts and seeds. Voilá! Breakfast is served.  

A quick dinner

A healthy, organic dinner for busy days. Or simply those days when you have better things to do then cook. Although I prefer cooking my own food there are times when I grab something pre-cooked. The creamy and tasty soups and stews from Spoons are perfect – they are organic, refined sugar free and doesn’t contain any additives. Two thumbs up for the vegan and vegetarian options! Yesterday I had a creamy root vegetable soup. I added some cooked quinoa and topped with roasted pumpkin seeds and ruccola. Perfect and almost like a home cooked meal 😉 *In co-operation with Spoons Nyttig, ekologisk färdigmat för stressiga dagar. Eller dagar du helt enkelt inte orkar ställa dig vid spisen. Jag föredrar att göra min egen mat från grunden men vissa dagar finns det varken tid eller ork; då är dessa smakrika, krämiga och hälsosamma soppor och grytor från  Spoons ett riktigt bra alternativ. Rätterna innehåller mycket baljväxter såsom bönor, linser och ärtor samt inga tillsatser eller tillsatt socker. Dessutom har de låg salthalt. Ett stort plus för …

Smoothie 24/7

Here’s a list with a few of my favourite smoothies. There’s no surprise that I love my smoothies. I usually have one as a snack before my workout in the afternoon/evening. Perfect pre-workout. At the moment I mostly end up mixing acai berry powder with frozen banana and blueberries or frozen mango, banana and pea protein powder. From time to time I attempt to create something extra fancy and nourishing, like the ones below.

Early mornings

I love early mornings. The sunrise. A healthy breakfast. Sleeping in. The smell of coffee. Warm Summer nights. Cuddles. I love Spring. Loud music in my ears. Running. Exploring a new city. The taste of coffee. People watching. Fresh flowers. The sunset. I love creating a new recipe. Writing. Lemon water. Taking photographs. The sound of the ocean. Puppies. Coconut ice cream. Working out. I love planning. Wearing a dress. My family. Acai bowls with loads of toppings. Making him laugh. Midnight sun. Ambitious people. I love his scent. Nature. The feeling of being free. Dancing. The smell of the forrest. Snowflakes pouring down. Capturing a moment. Taking a hot bath. I love early mornings.
