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.

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

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 🙂
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.
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
Put the nuts in a blender and mix the nuts until they are very small pieces.
Put the eggs, banana coconut milk and water in a mixer and bled.
Pour in the nuts and stir.
Boil in a pot while you stir, until you’ve got the right consistency.
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.
