Summer breakfast

This summery morning I made one of my favourite breakfasts. OK, I confess, I make this one in winter as well, but this time of the year it just seems to taste better. Like the sunshine enhances all about this Strawberry Soup… It is fast and easy to make,  tastes yum and leaves you really happy from the inside. All you need is; 200 – 225 grams of strawberries 2 dl of coconut milk 2 teaspoons manuka honey some fresh mint   You just toss the strawberries, coconut milk and manuka honey in the mixer and mix it all together. Pour it in a soup bowl. Add some fresh mint to garnish. Enjoy! You can of course supplement the strawberries for any other berries you´d like. Go ahead and be as creative as you wish! <3    

Breakfast ginger banana smoothie

Some days all you want to do is have a very quick breakfast and quite often for me that is when a smoothie or a chia pudding comes in to play. This smoothie is not just filling and yummy, you can also make extra and have it as one of your snacks later during the day. And it is the perfect post training snack as well. Just throw all of this in the blender; 2 bananas 1,5 dl water 1 tspn cinnamon fresh ginger, as much or as little as you´d like 200 gr strawberries (or any other berries ;-), it is strawberry season here right now, so….) 1,5 dl oat, soya or almond milk 2 tspns soy or rice protein powder   Swish! Enjoy!  

Quick, easy, yummy healthy breakfast / snack

Sometimes we just need to get some “grubb” like we call it in Sweden in really fast. This is one of my favourite Yummy, Fun and Healthy breakfasts and snacks. There are even times when I am guilty of having a double portion of this for lunch as well, when time feels really scarce. What you do is basically to mix this together; 200 or 250 grams of cottage cheese handful of nuts pinch of cinnamon huge serving of your favourite berries or fruit, or whatever berries or fruit you have in your house 😉 Enjoy!

Chia Pudding

Chiapudding – yummy recipe

I have to admit that the first time I had a go at making the now oh-so-trendy Chia Pudding for the first time, the result was the same as that initial sip of shampoo you get down your throat as a kid when you don´t listen to your mum asking you to keep your eyes and mouth closed as she is washing your hair (aged 3 or so 😉 🙂 ). Totally not yum, or anything close to it. So I stayed off making any of these the-worlds-easiest-and-fastest-plus-superhealthy breakfasts for almost a year, savouring the tasty one´s I could get in cafés in Östersund, Göteborg, Köbenhavn, Haarlem, Heemstede, Amsterdam… Then a few weeks ago this recipe landed in our shopping cart – can´t remember if it was from Dekamarkt or AH, but anyway – it´s totally yum! Not a hint of shampoo taste, just total bliss. If you´d like to try it, here it is; Ingredients; 1 can full fat coconut milk 40 gr chia seeds 2 tbspns honey or maple syrup 1 tspn vanilla extract Half a mango …

Glutenfree paleo cracker

Super healthy, yummy crackers in no time

Being allergic to gluten means it is not that easy to just grab something when it´s snack time. Which might feel sligth annoying at times , yet is is a true blessing for your health as you get in to using more and more pure foods – cooking and creating from scratch. I found the base of this recipe in one of those free magazines you get at your supermarket, some months ago. As usual I did not have all the ingredients in the house as I got to test this recipe yesterday , but I did have quite some things I could supplement with. Imagine my surprise when these were not just super easy and mega fast to make, but actually tasted divine :-). Go ahead and try  for yourself! Ingredients; 150 grams almond flour 70 grams seeds – I used a mix of flaxseed, pumpkinseed and sunflower seeds this time 1,5 tbspn olive oil 1 sligtly whisked egg 2 tspns of dried herbs Heat your oven to 180 degrees C. Mix all the …

Energy bar, gluten free, dairy free, raw, paleo

Snack bar – the healthy one ;-)

Quite often I see recipe´s in magazines and books which I then either rip out (that´s for the magazines eh 😉 ) or go ahead and buy the book immediately so that I can test them. If I deem them yummy as well as healthy I share them, always quoting the original source of course ;-). They ones I share will always be easy to make, as I am – still, and I think always will be – a real klutz in the kitchen. If it hadn´t been for me being lucky enough to find the best co op partner in the world to work with – thank you Jo Parfitt for introducing us – as well as the most fun, brutally honest and with a heart the size of the distance from here to the end of our galaxy and back, friend, Stephi from Appetite Voyage, I never would have ventured outside the world of already printed and created recipe´s. Ever. Buuuuuut – Stephi taught me the art and the dare of tweaking recipes. …
