Tag Archives: 30 day challenge

Whole 30 day 18-20.. went to the summer cabin for the weekend.

Still doing a the whole30, however this weekend i did “cheat” on saturday when I went to a dinner we were invited to. I had some wine and sauce to the fish that was served. On Sunday evening on our way home I also ended up having kabob with rice and creamy garlic sauce ( i thought they were going to give me the tomato sauce). It was very interesting because I felt a difference really fast in my body. It is strange how quickly I can feel a difference. I will continue to do the whole 30, and even if i will not have done it 100 % correct I still feel like it’s been fantastic and I still have some days to go. I don’t feel like a failure, and no one should just because things didn’t go like planned. We just need to continue to do the best we can and not give up 😀

I often eat breakfast on the go and my favorite go to breakfast that is easy to have on the go is a smoothie with boiled eggs. And sometimes I make some kind of porridge (buckwheat, millet, nut) I don’t eat oatmeal, a chia pudding. Something in a jar making it easy to take with me.

Today me and one of my friend went on a long walk with some hills and pushing a stroller about 7 km (4.4 miles), I was completely beat. But I had no time to take a nap before work. Just enough time to eat some lunch and prep my dinner. So I can’t wait for this workday to be over and go home and sleep.

Yesterday and today went by smoothly still have no sugar cravings, which is fantastic cause they suck hahaha. I decided to not have any cacao in anything I make just to make sure I don’t trigger any cravings. I live having cacao in my smoothies or bullet proof coffee. Yesterday I had a super yummy creamy smoothie for breakfast. I think I will make it tomorrow too.

Whole30 day 3-5 done whohooo :D a new brekfast recipe up!

Helloooo 😀 The Whole30 is going great and I feel good. I’ve had some busy 3 days with work, friends and having fun. Went to pick blueberries on friday with my friend. We got these berry pickers which made it a lot easier to pick the blueberries. However we didn’t like the surprise of spiders, ticks and some other creepy crawly things that came with it hahaha. We will go out again next week to get some more blueberries before the season is over.

I also changed gyms yesterday, or I quit my old on friday and signed up at a new gym yesterday. A lot of my friends go to this new gym so now I will join them. I think it will help me and motivate me to go to the gym more often, also we can push each other too.

So on thursday I tried a new breakfast and it was very good. I had it for breakfast for 3 days it was that good. I could probably eat it for a few more days. But I decided to not do that it might get boring then hehehe

Uh-oh this weekend was a challenge, but it’s ok.

The last few days I have been very busy and have not been able to post anything. I also deviated from the challenge, however I am back and I will not start over on day one but just continue a few more days instead 🙂

Last week was a challenge, I started a new job two weeks ago and there is so much to learn, and my head have been on overload hahaha. I also worked really late, and that I’m not used to. So I was kind of exhausted in my brain this weekend. On saturday I ended up eating at TGI Fridays had a burger with gluten free bun and a few fries, I also had 2 mojitos. And on yesterday on sunday I had nachos at my sisters house. My stomach ended up in so much pain after dinner yesterday it was still hurting this morning. I’m not going to punish myself for failing this weekend.. it is just getting back on the wagon again. Now 24 hours later my stomach is still hurting a little bit.

Today I had nut porridge topped with berries for breakfast and a purple green juice. For lunch and dinner I had taco pie i made last week 🙂

2015-05-11 07.27.01

The nut porridge is delicious and simple to make, I found this recipe online it is in swedish. I just used less to have a smaller portion.

Nut porridge

  • 1 dl (0.4 cups) nuts ( i used almonds and cashews)
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 dl (0.4 cups) coconut milk
  • 1 msk water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • Cinnamon
  • Cardamom
  1. Put the nuts in a blender and mix the nuts until they are very small pieces.
  2. Put the eggs, banana coconut milk and water in a mixer and bled.
  3. Pour in the nuts and stir.
  4. Boil in a pot while you stir, until you’ve got the right consistency.
  5. Add the cinnamon and cardamom.
  6. Top with some berries. Enjoy!

I’m on day 4 and doing great with my challenge.. new breakfast recipe up!

Yesterday it was sunny and fairly warm outside 🙂 it was windy but still nice. So I went for a short walk in the sun. Loved it!!!!! I am such a sensitive person and get really affected by the weather. When the sun is out I feel fantastic even if I’m tired. As soon as it is a gloomy day i tend to feel sluggish and tired, like my head never quite wakes up fully. Don’t get me started on the long dark winters over here. I neeeeed sunshine!!!!!! 🙂 Since I stopped taking birthcontrol pills now over 2 years most of my senses are super heightened. Which is interesting who knew at a young age that the pill will alter your mood and sensitivity levels? It is pushed so hard on young women, it’s the norm. Sadly we know too little about what it does to alter our quality of life. Now I know how it has suppressed me for the 15 years I was on it. But at least I know have the knowledge to share 🙂 This post took a different direction hahaha.

So yesterday I ate some delishious smoothie for breakfast with 2 eggs, saved some for evening snack that i added chiaseeds too. For lunch I had a carrot ginger apple vegetable soup that I made 1 week ago. Love when I have stuff in the freeser it makes life so much easier sometimes. I added 2 raw eggs in to the soup when I was heating it up on the stove, so the eggs get coked in the soup. For dinner I had the same as day 2, chickpea carrot patties with ovenbaked sweetpotatoes.

Yesterday I said I would post the recipe for my millet flake meal, it was so yummy. I don’t eat oats very often, because it can give me stomach ache. I don’t think I’m allergic to it more so that because I have issues with my stomach and it has to heal properly it has a hard time digesting it. But then again I don’t know for sure.

2015-05-05 10.23.09For 1 portion

  • 1/4 cup millet flakes
  • 3/4-1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp crushed flax seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 tsp agave
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Put in a pot and cook to the consistency you like. Enjoy!!!!
