Breakfast or snack smoothie – Banana Almond

Smoothies are some or the easiest and fastest things to make for breakfast and / or snacks. Totally some of my favourites as you can either choose to sit down and enjoy your smoothie while just breathing and just being, as well as when you have one of those mornings or days when you just can’t get to take a longer breakfast or break you can have your smoothie while working. Just throw the following in the blender and mix!   1 frozen banana 1,5 cups vegan 🌱 milk 🥛 1 tbspn almond butter 1 tbspn chia seeds 2 dates 1 tspn wheatgrass powder (optional) 1 tspn rosehip powder (optional) A few ice cubes Enjoy!  

Vegan oven pancakes

“Just trust the process”. “Be open to everything”. Yes, this morning was one of those mornings that those two expressions made me look wider than what was in front of me and to my eyes in that moment wasn’t working. I was about to make these totally yummy almond butter bars for breakfast. I had about 30 minutes and a busy day ahead. Getting the recipe out, starting with adding the chia seeds to the water for the “chia eggs”, then switching on the oven while I was sipping my freshly made matcha oat milk latte I could hardly wait to taste these yummy bars after meditation. You see, that was the plan – let the almond butter bars bake in the oven as I was in my morning meditation. The third ingredient on the list was apple puree. And when I make these bars I always make my own homemade, sugarfree apple puree the night before. Not last night I didn’t. Crap! What am I going to do now? The whole morning starts to …

Overnight buckwheat porridge

I am trying out so many different overnight puddings, overnight oats, overnight buckwheat recipes lately and they are all so yummy that I find myself superstoked about these breakfasts. What more do you need than a breakfast which takes less than 3 minutes to prepare when you get up in the morning, a breakfast which is yummy, healthy, good for you and good for the planet simultanously and guarantees that you are full for at least 3 – 4 hours? When my alarm goes off in the morning, I don’t think I need anything else in that moment ;-). So here’s today’s version of the overnight buckwheat porridge. It is for one portion, but I usually make more and put the rest in the fridge for the coming 2 mornings as well. Ingredients 1 dl buckwheat groats 0,5 dl sunflower seeds 3 dl water 1 dl raspberries 1/2 banana 1/2 dl plant based milk of your choice 1/2 tspn ceylon cinnamon Top with : berries, fruit, seeds, nuts   How to Soak the buckwheat groats …

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    

Chocolate breakfast muffins

I made these muffins Saturday – orginially from a recipe from a Dutch Paleo magazine –  , posting pics on Instagram as I was baking along. Many of you have contacted me via DM on Instagram, Facebook Messenger, What´s App and more for the recipe the past few days, so instead of typing it out a zillion of times I thought I´d share it here ;-). You need; 250 gr almond butter 2 eggs (for a vegan version, soak 30 gr of chiaseed in 3 dl of water for 15 minutes and use the whole “gunk” instead of eggs) 3 tbspns raw cacao powder 1 tspn vanilla powder 3 ripe bananas 1,5 tspn baking powder 100 gr of 90 – 100 % dark chocolate, chopped up   How to; Heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade. Add all the ingredients, aside from the dark choclate, and mix them in your kitchen machine or hand held mixer. Stir in the chopped up chocolate. Set the muffin liners (you can make your own from parchment paper as …

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!  

Kale and spinach soup

Oh so yummy easy as soup

Short post again ;-). It will take you just about 1 minute longer to cook this soup than the time it takes you to read this recipe post –  that´s how short they both are ;-). Ingredients; 150 gr kale 100 gr spinach 500 ml vegetable stock half a lemon 2 cm approx fresh ginger root 1 onion coconut oil pepper Sautée the onion and the garlic in the coconut oil in a pot on medium heat. Add the kale and spinach and allow them to sautée along for a little while. Stir in the stock, the ginger and the lemon juice. Use a mixer to get the soup in  smoother state, spice with the pepper and serve! 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!

Waffles!

Waffles to me is one of the most Swedish dishes ever. Waffles instantly make me think of my grandmother´s kitchen, cold winter days in the snow  with friends and once we were cold to the bone after hours of pulka rides and snowball fights, arriving at grandma´s for freshly made waffles with jam and whipped cream. Waffles takes me back to days on the ski slopes in Sälen , stopping by the “Våffelstuga” – literally translated “the waffle hut” – to fill up with energy through , you guessed it , waffles , whipped cream and jam. Since then I found out –  8 years ago –  that I am allergic to gluten, plus I have cut out sugar entirely of my diet and dairy products rarely enter our household. Every time my friend Stina posts her healthy waffles she makes in the mornings on Instagram and Facebook I get instant home-sickness mixed with this urgent need to have waffles – which a has been going on for at least 3 years :-). So when one …
