Wow 2 weeks of my whole 30 has already passed and i am still going strong. It feels great to be eating clean, however i do miss having some paleo treats. So for my birthday coming up next month I will make a paleo party for my family and friends. I can’t wait 🙂
Went out dancing to a salsa club saturday with a few friends and it was fun, i am not used to wear heels anymore so my feet were killing me after a few hours hahaha. I love wearing heels so I guess I need to try to wear them more 😀 I must have missed the memo about it being a black/ white party. Almost every person in the club had a black or white top on hahaha. Oh and you can’t go out without taking the mandatory bathroom picture 😀
Breakfast: Spinach superfood coconut omelette
Dinner: Parsnip, carrot, turnip mash with beef patties, lingonberries
Evening snack: Berry smoothie topped with buckwheat flakes, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut and walnuts

Hi 😀 i just found out one of my good friends got engaged. I am soooo happy for her/ them. They are so perfect for eachother. Love them both am looking forward for the wedding whenever that will take place. Nadia can’t wait to hear all the details 😉 I love when things are going great and fun and exciting things are happening to my friends. It brings me so much joy to see the people I love to do good. Have to share 2 beautiful pictures of them. You guys are an inspiration.
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.
Breakfast: Creamy berry smoothie with a side of 2 eggs
Lunch: A double meat minty burger with Zucchini “buns” and minty guacamole
Dinner: Cucumber sandwich stuffed with turkey sandwich meet, homemade mayo, salad and tomato
Snack: Leftover creamy smoothie from the morning, and bananas topped with almond butter, nuts and shredded coconut.
Breakfast: Sweet potato hash browns with bacon avocado and tomato
Snack: 1 banana
Lunch: Some more Sweet potatp hashbrowns with a salad shell stupped with turkey sandwich meat, homemade mayo, avocado and tomoto
Dinner: Even more Sweetpotato hashbrown with bacon and my blueberry coconut omelette (no greens this time) hehehe
Sweet Potato hash browns:
1 medium sized sweet potato shredded
2 medium – large eggs
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
coconut oil for frying
Shred the sweet potato, whisk the eggs with cinnamon and cardamom. Then mix in the shredded sweet potato well and fry on low to medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side, maybe longer depending on how thick the shreds or the hash browns are.
This may not look super yummy but it was very good 🙂 thats why I’m sharing the recipe 😀
Hi so today I’m embarking on day 3. But since I work from 5pm – 12am this week I post yesterdays foods that I ate 🙂 Yesterday ended up being a vegeterian day which was fantastic. I love to switch it up. I also believe that as mainly a paleo eater you are some days supposed to be all vegeterain. I beleive that back in the paleolithic times they ate meat when they had been out hunting and the days they didn’t have meet they ate vegeterian. This is just my own thughts about this. Can’t know for sure 😉
For breakfast I had millet flakes meal topped with berries, that recipe will be up tomorrow. For lunch and dinner I had chickpea and carrot patties, recipe below. Snack I had apple and banana and a raw food bar.
Chickpeas carrot patties
1 tetra box or can of chickpeas
1 medium carrot
1 small onion
1-2 cloves garlic
1-2 tsp arrowroot flour (tapioca or coconut works too
1 tsp cummin powder
1 tsp tumeric powder
Dash of chill powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Coconut oil, ghee for frying
Rinse the chickpeas, chop the onion and garlic
Put in a food blender and blend till a grainy consistency not smooth. Put in a bowl.
Shred the carrot and add to the mixture with the egg and seasonings.
Mix well and create balls and flatten them out to patties on a cutting board.
Fry the patties on low to medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Til they get a little color.
Serve with sides of your choice. I used ovenbaked sweet potato, guacamole and salad.
Hi i have been slipping for some time now. I have been eating to much of foods my body does not agree with. Like dairy (mainly cheese), sugar (in sweets, coffiee drinks, icecream etc.), processed food (chips, fries, etc.), even some gluten though extremely small amounts. And my body have been telling me to stop but i have ignored it. Now it is time to stop and get back on track eating in a way my body deserve. And for me to do that i need to challenge myself, i stay on track when i do. It is also a great way to kick start change and creating good habits.
My 30 day challenge will consist of paleo food, vegetarian food and raw food. That’s why i called it a paleoish clean eating challenge. And as always preparing and planning is the key to stay on track. Yesterday on day 1 i ate a delicious smoothie with eggs for breakfast, recipe below. For lunch i met up with a friend and had a salad topped with shrimp, snack was the same as my morning smoothie. For dinner i had salmon with oven baked sweetpotato.
Yummylisious smoothie recipe:
hand full spinach
1 cup blackberry, raspberry, blueberry (i used frozen)
1/2 cup strawberry (used fresh)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 small knob ginger
1 tsp green superfood mix (chlorella, wheatgrass, ginger)
3/4 cup water
Blend and enjoy!!!!! For the part i saved for my afternoon snack i added 1 tbsp chiaseeds so it would be more creamy.
After a long working weekend with little sleep, I slept close to 11 hours today and woke up at 11. I can’t eat right after waking up so I had brunch today 🙂
