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.

Easy mayo recipe

20150906_142857

  • 2 dl (a little less than 1 cup) oil, I used 1 1/2 dl mild olive oil and 1/2 dl avocado oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vinegar ( i used apple cider vinegar)
  • Salt and pepper

Place the egg in a high cup, i used the one that comes with the hand blender. Putt in the seasonings and lemon juice and ACV pour over the oil and let sit for a little bit. Then place your hand blender over the egg and start it without moving it for about 30 sec to 1 minute. Then start moving it slowly up and down til the mayo is finished.

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!!!!

Moist Blueberry Banana Mug Cake and Raspberry Mango Smoothie

It’s been a minute since i posted something, been very busy and focusing on other parts of my life 🙂 I saw a picture on insta gram this morning of a mug cake with blueberries. No recipe attatched to it. But it made me go OMG i want this for breakfast today. So I made this super moist blueberry banana mug cake. WOW sooooooooo good. Yummy yummy yummy. I have tried different recipes and they have always ended up dry, but this one is ooey gooey 😀 For breakfast it was a little too sweet for me, my blood sugars spiked hahaha. So note to self next time I will leave out the sweetners.

I am still doing my dmotiv8tor challenge, yesterday I completed week 8. I am a little behind because I have been sick on and off. But I am determined to finish it, it will just take a few weeks longer then planned 🙂 I am so sore from yesterdays workout 🙂 I did day 5 legs and day 6 back before I went to work. So today will be a rest day.

Det har varit ett tag sedan jag skrev något, varit väldigt upptagen och fokusera på andra delar av mitt liv 🙂 Jag såg en bild på Insta Gram i morse av en muggkaka med blåbär. Inget recept fanns till den. Men det fick mig att gå OMG jag vill ha det här till frukost idag. Så jag gjorde en super saftig blåbär banan muggkaka. WOW sooooooooo goood. Yummy yummy yummy. Jag har provat olika recept och de har alltid blivigt torra, men den här är ooey gooey 😀 Till frukost det var lite för söt för mig, mitt blodsocker steg ganska mycket hahaha. Så nästa gång kommer jag inte använda sötningsmedel.

Jag gör fortfarande min dmotiv8tor utmaning, igår jag avslutade vecka 8. Jag ligger lite efter eftersom jag har varit sjuk till och från. Men jag är fast besluten att avsluta denna utmaning, det kommer bara ta några veckor längre än planerat 🙂 Jag har träningsvärk från gårdagens träning 🙂 Jag gjorde dag 5 ben och dag 6 rygg innan jag gick till jobbet. Så idag blir en vilodag.

Nut meal (nut porridge)

I was really hungry this morning and wanted something fulfilling. I decided to make nut no-oatmeal since I don’t eat oats. And it sure filled me up and gave me lots of energy. I found this recipe on sockertjocken.se I changed it up a little.

För svenska se needan

2013-10-29 11.47.06

Recipe:

For one person

  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup almond
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp whole flaxseed
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4-1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 egg

Toppings

  • Blueberries
  • Pomegranate
  • Coconut milk

Directions

  1. Run the almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds in blender. Make sure it is minced not flour consistency.
  2. Then pour this down in a dry frying pan, add flaxseeds and roast it. When done, mix the cinnamon and remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Whisk together the coconut milk, eggs and coconut sugar separately.
  4. Then pour this down into nut mixture. Put the pan on the stove and stir in the porridge all the time. Otherwise, it may become scrambled eggs porridge, and that we would rather not. Of course when you get the desired consistency of porridge.

Jag var verkligen hungrig i morse och ville ha något riktigt mättande. Jag beslöt att göra nötgröt eftersom jag inte äter havre. Och jag blev mätt och det gav mig massor av energi.

2013-10-29 11.44.43

Recept:

För 1 person

  • 0.5 dl valnötter
  • 0.5 dl mandel
  • 1 msk pumpafrön
  • 1-2 msk hela linfrön
  • 0.5 tsk kanel
  • 1 msk kokossocker
  • 0.5-1 dl kokosmjölk
  • 1 ägg

Gratinering

  • Blåbär
  • Granatäpple kärnor
  • Kokosmjölk

Gör så här

  1. Kör mandel, valnötter och pumpafrön i mixer. Det ska bli finhackat, inte mjölkonsistens.
  2. Häll sedan ner detta i en torr stekpanna, häll även ner linfröna och rosta detta. När det är färdigt, blanda ner kanel och ta pannan från värmen.
  3. Vispa ihop kokosmjölk, ägg och kokossocker för sig.
  4. Häll sedan ner detta i nöt blandningen. Sätt tillbaka pannan på spisen och rör i gröten hela tiden. Annars kan det bli scrambled eggs gröt, och det vill vi helst inte. Det är klart när du fått önskad konsistens på gröten.

Sweet and Savory Brunch

Wow this brunch was soooo delicious!!!! Had the perfect balance of sweetness and savory flavors that blended well together. Wish I had made more hahaha. People ask me how I find my recepies that I don’t create myself. A lot of times when I can’t figure out what to eat I search on google for recepies and inspirations. I always put PALEO infront of the search term to find paleo recepies. E.i. paleo breakfast or paleo chicken etc. I always find a lot of options to look through.

This morning I searched for paleo brunch and I found these two different recepies that looked so great I wanted to try them out. The first one was Strawberry Shortcake recepie and the second was Perfect Scrambled Eggs recepie where I found the Gordon Ramsey video. Easy to follow 🙂

Recipe:  

Strawberry Shortcake minus the strawberries since I didn’t have any 🙂

2013-10-19 11.08.38

  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries (I used blackberries and blueberries)
  • 1-2 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold grass-fed butter or coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used 1/4 tsp since i used organic vanilla bean powder)
  1. Defrost berries and mix in a bowl together with honey.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  3. Line a sheet pan with some parchment paper or use silicone cupcake molds.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Using a fork or knife, cut the butter into the almond flour to form and mix, so that you’ve formed some small beads of the butter in the dough.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, honey, and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry.
  6. Using a spoon or measuring cup, drop the dough onto the sheet pan into 8 evenly sized cakes, leaving room in between each cake.
  7. Bake for 15–20 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Allow cakes to cool, then slice horizontally, and spoon some of the strawberry or berry mixture into the middle, and some extra on the side.

 

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

2013-10-19 11.09.01

  • 3 eggs
  • Some butter or coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 large mushrooms
  • 2 handfull of spinach
  • 1 tomato
  1. Prior to placing the saucepan on the stove, crack the eggs into the saucepan and add the coconut oil to the saucepan as well.
  2. Place the saucepan on medium heat and start stirring so that the eggs get broken up.
  3. Keep stirring without stopping.
  4. Move the saucepan off the heat when you start to see some of the egg sticking a bit to the bottom of the saucepan. Keep stirring off the heat for about 10 seconds and then put it back onto the heat for another 20-30 seconds, but always keep stirring.
  5. Do this three or four times until you see that the mixture becomes more solid (but don’t wait until it’s actually solid!).
  6. Once the eggs have solidified a bit, take the pot off the heat permanently.
  7. Lastly, season with salt and pepper.
  8. Sautee the muschroom, spinach and tomato.
