Green Super Smoothie

‘Happiness is sipping a green smoothie.’   This green goddess smoothie will provide you with pure healthy energy, and make you glow from the inside out. It’s filled with all the good stuff; spinach, kale, broccoli, mango, banana and almond butter. A bunch of greens, because the body likes that. Every cell of the body likes those nutrients.  Nowadays when I have a smoothie they are usually green and filled with veggies & banana or mango.

Green Smoothies & Sunday Thoughts

‘You might never feel ready. But the secret is to start before you’re ready. One step at a time, and you’ll gain more knowledge, more confidence. Start today. Start now.’   – Linda   A green smoothie a day keeps the doctor away. My mantra, my belief. Give your body real food. Foods that are filled with nutrients and that help your body heal itself. Nourish your body, love your body. Your body is meant to feel strong, alive and filled with energy. You’re meant to move your body; stretch, run, jump, dance, walk, lift, spin around. Be grateful for having a living, breathing body that makes it possible to do all the things you wish to do. You’re capable of so much. More than you ever dare to imagine. Don’t let negative thoughts take over your mind. Be aware of them, and then peacefully, let them go. They don’t serve you. They don’t push you forward. Our mind is a beautiful and powerful tool. Don’t let the mind rule you, instead, rule your mind. …

Hazelnut & apricot muesli

  ‘The secret ingredient in all my dishes is one heaping teaspoon of love.’   – Linda It’s incredibly easy and convenient to prep your own muesli. You choose your favourite ingredients, combine everything to a yummy and healthy muesli, and you have yourself a perfect nutrient dense breakfast. This gluten free hazelnut & apricot muesli is full of fiber, carbohydrates, healthy fats, protein, and tastes freaking delicious. Apart from the ingredients below you can add ingredients such as sunflower seeds, raisins, mulberries, goji berries, almonds, puffed amaranth and quinoa flakes. You can easily leave out the oil and syrup. I added a hint of both for a little bit of extra flavour, however, not as much as I normally would when making granola. This muesli is a healthier option to granola. I got inspired to make my own muesli when I was in Vienna visiting my friend Anna. She had made the most delicious hazelnut muesli. Thank you, dear friend ❤ I think it tastes best served with plant-based yoghurt and fresh raspberries. Hazelnut & apricot muesli …

Peanut Butter Smoothie

‘Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait and wait without anxiety.’   – Gabrielle Bernstein   This is as close to heaven in a bowl you’ll get. I have a flue going on so tucking into this beauty brightens the day. Who can say no to a chocolate smoothie this divine? I know I can’t. I have a newfound love for chocolate & tahini combos. They marry very well together ❤ Not to mention the peanut butter. Oh yes! And the tiny hint of turmeric to spice things up (might even go for some cayenne pepper next time…) Salty Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie This smoothie is insanely good. If you love anything salty and utterly peanut butterly this one is for you. Perfect as a post-workout snack or when you crave something sweet & naughty, but want something that’s actually good for your body. Mix it baby, mix it. Ingredients: 1 frozen banana A naughty spoon of peanut butter 1 tbsp raw cacao 1/2 tsp tahini Plant-based milk 2 tsp maca …

Thursday brunch

‘Stop dancing in a daydream while the sky is full of stars.’   – Linda   Quiet mornings. Calm sea and freshly brewed coffee. Enjoying the late summer heat while preparing brunch. The beauty of holidays; one have time to enjoy a long brunch on a Thursday. All about simplicity though, fresh food that is easy to prepare. Easy to love. I have a weakness for food with a taste of crispiness, creaminess and comfortness. Quiet mornings turning into productive afternoons.  Thursday brunch Avocado toast with fresh coriander, sesame seeds & baby tomatoes Simple to make and so very delicious. Crispy bread, creamy avocado and fresh coriander = best combo ❤ I can’t have enough. Gluten free bread (toasted) Mashed avocado with himalaya salt & black pepper Heaps of fresh coriander Black and white sesame seeds Baby tomatoes   Vanilla Strawberry Smoothie with Toasted Pecans & Raspberries A creamy smoothie with strawberries, with a taste as good as ice cream. Magic in a bowl. Frozen banana Strawberries Oatley milk Vanilla powder Pecans + a sneaky …

Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

‘I believe the sun will rise every morning, I believe it will set every night. How can there not be magic with a nature so magical?’   – Linda   This delicious smoothie bowl is jam-packed with vitamin C. Topped with all kinds of goodies such as pecan nuts, chewy rawbites, raspberries and sea buckthorn. A perfect pick-me-up. The taste of sea buckthorn is quite tart, like sour orange, which makes it a nice compliment to a sweeter smoothie. Looking at this smoothie and it makes me think of autumn – fresh, crisp morning vibes. Strawberry Smoothie bowl Ingredients: 1 frozen banana A handful of strawberries 2 tsp almond butter 2 tsp maca powder 2 tsp chia seeds 2 tbsp oat flakes Oatley milk  + vanilla powder Instructions: Place the ingredients in a blender and mix until creamy. Always add the liquid first. Less liquid will make for a thicker smoothie, while more liquid will give you a thinner drink. I prefer my smoothies to be on the thicker side, eating them with a spoon. …

5 benefits from drinking green smoothies

‘Let’s wake up with a smile, make green smoothies and conquer the day.’   Whenever I’m at home I try to have a green smoothie as the first meal of the day. I’ve become slightly addicted to them as they provide me with so much energy. And of course they taste delicious. However, I like my green smoothies to be more on the sweet side, hence I always mix frozen banana or frozen mango into the blender. Not to forget the almond butter or peanut butter. The best thing is – you can be creative and improvise. Combine your favourite veggies and/or fruits, some kind of superfood and spices, nuts & seeds, dairy free milk of your own choice and you have yourself a delicious meal. I also prefer cold smoothies so I usually add frozen banana. Amazingly yummy. More energy – Smoothies can be very energy dense, providing your body with loads of healthy stuff. Perfect if you’re searching for a calorie dense meal – add some kind of nut butter (almond butter is …

Chocolate Smoothie & Sunday Thoughts

”It’s like having chocolate mousse cake for breakfast! – It’s just that it tastes way better.”   Exactly. Like having dessert for breakfast. This thick & creamy chocolate, maca smoothie with a hint of turmeric is the perfect brekkie while PMS:ing 😉 (Maca is perfect for balancing hormones. And mine are all over the place right now…) However, this smoothie is absolutely divine. The bitter taste of turmeric and cacao & the sweetness of banana and dates marry well together. Not to mention, the caramel flavour of maca. This nutrient dense smoothie bowl is a flavour explosion for sure! My soul is so very grateful. Remember – when your body is hungry, it wants nutrients, not calories. Feed your body. ”Let’s pay the farmer, not the pharmacist.” – Paul Coletta, CEO Urban Remedy Chocolate smoothie bowl Ingredients: 1 frozen banana 2 tbsp vegan protein powder (raw cacao +maca flavour) 1 tsp turmeric 2 tsp peanutbutter 1 medjool date 2 tbsp Alpro soya Go On (creamy dairy free quark) A hint of almond milk + Ice  Instructions: …

Pancakes for breakfast

”Feed your soul. Have pancakes.” __________________________________________________ linda Today I felt like having pancakes. So pancakes I had. The child in me is jumping of joy at the smell of pancakes. Topped with all kinds of good stuff; berries, coconut sugar, dairy free yoghurt, chocolate hazelnut spread. Whatever you prefer! Oh my, my love for pancakes is unreal. If you prefer 100 % plant based pancakes you can mix 1 tbsp chia seed with approx. 3 tbsp water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes, or until it takes on a gooey mixture. Equivalent to one egg. Ingredients: (roughly estimated for one person) 1 mashed banana 1 egg approx. 0.5 dl oat flour 1/2 tsp baking powder A hint of almond milk Season with cardamom, cinnamon & vanilla powder Instructions: In a big bowl mash the banana. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together. In a frying pan melt coconut oil. Fry on medium heat until golden brown. Enjoy with fresh berries, soy yoghurt & nuts.
