Whole30 day 10-14 done.. still going strong :) New simple yummy recipe up!!!

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 😀

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.

Day 6:

  • 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
  • IMG_20150907_121637 20150907_152027

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 😀

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

Enjoy

New Year, New Beginnings.. I am doing a 30 day clean eating challenge

Hi hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Years eve celebration. I surely did, spent christmas with family and New Years with friends. Since it is a new year i know a lot of people feel that with a new year there are new beginnings and potentials. Like starting over or geting another chance. Though this can be done any day or time of the year it seems like many need this, giving them a clean slate to start fresh. So lets 🙂

We tend to have some new years resolutions, which for most are hard to follow through or to continue with. WE tend to fall back into our same old habits. The best way to actually follow through is to not just say what you wish to do, but to also write down what it is and how you want to do it. How you can follow through and not start too hard because most people fall off the wagon. If this is you then write down your ‘bigger’ goal, then brake it down to smaller feasable goals on the way. And celebrate and reward yourself for reaching the smaller steps. It can be someting like getting a massage, doing something you love, you don’t have to reward yourself with ‘bad’ food.

Whole30 day 6! Didn’t go as planned

Hiiiiii i had a lovely day today. I slept in, i guess my body was still tired. Woke up made breakfast, then i was cleaning. The process is boring, yes cleaning is boring, but the result is always the same I feel liberated.
After that i prepared breakfast and lunch for tomorrow.  I will be at church volunteering from 7.30 till about 14. So i made some on the go foods. Can’t wait to eat some 🙂
Tonight i was invited to one of my dear friends for a girls taco night 🙂 it was great seeing these girls chatting and eating. I love spending time with great people. I did end up cheating some and I don’t regret it or sweat it, I will prolong my Whole30 with a few more days to complete a whole30 without cheating. But to sum up my day in one word lovely 😀

Hiiiiii jag hade en härlig dag i dag. Jag tog sovmorgon, jag antar att min kropp var fortfarande trött. Vaknade gjorde frukost, sen städade jag. Processen är tråkigt, ja städning är tråkigt, men resultatet är alltid detsamma jag känner mig befriad.
Efter att jag förberett frukost och lunch inför imorgon. Jag kommer att vara i kyrkan som volontär från 7.30 till cirka 14. Så jag gjorde en del lätt mat att ta med. Längtar tills jag får äta lite 🙂
Ikväll var jag inbjuden till en av mina kära vänner för en tjej tako kväll 🙂 det var kul att se tjejerna och chatta och äta. Jag ville sluta fuska lite och jag ångrar inte det, jag kommer att förlänga mitt Whole30 med några fler dagar att slutföra en hel whole30 utan fusk. Men för att sammanfatta min dag i ett ord härlig: D

Vad jag åt

  • Brunch – Sötpotatis kakor med stekt ägg och bacon (jag är inte ett stort fan av det så jag äter bara lite ibland) + jag åt en banan.
  • Lunch – Resterna av laxen med sauterade rödbetor och spenat morotssallad
  • Middag – Tako (köttfärs, kyckling fajitas, sallad, guacamole, salsa och till dessert  gjorde jag en avokado fruktskål (+ mitt fusk är inte på bilden men var var vin, en smal skiva av mjölfri Chokladtårta och majschips) Jag är inte perfekt men det är ok, jag ska bara försöka hårdare 🙂

Whole30 Day 5 finished! Ate so yummy today

I slept in today it was much needed 🙂 When I woke up at 10.25 I saw a text message from my lovely friend Henny. She wanted to meet for lunch at 11ish, since I needed to eat I thought it was a great idea to go and catch up over a meal. Jumped in the shower, got dressed and headed out. You can’t tell but she is pregnant with only 8 weeks to go before a new baby princess is born. After the nice brunch I went home and cooked food to take with me to work.

Hon ville mötas över en lunch vid 11ish, eftersom jag behövde äta jag tyckte det var en bra idé att gå och chatta över en måltid. Hoppade i duschen, klädde och stack iväg.

My leaving LA tonight dinner/ another birhtday celebration dinner 😀 I was speachless to how many of my friends showed up to this dinner. My flight left at 10pm so I decided to have a last dinner at Cheesecake Factory in Marina Del Ray, which is one of my favorit places to eat at. We sat outside at the lower deck, they gave us our own little cabana corner!! The view was amazing, the beach was right outside with the water front very close 🙂 I had my favorit meal the Herb Crusted Salmon and Shrimp Scampi and for dessert I chose the 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake and I have to say this cheesecake is WOW oh so delicious!!!!! It is the best one I have ever tasted. I was so happy and emotional to see everyone, so sad to leave. I feel at home in LA, I hope to move back one day soon 😀

Great weekend and I love Hiking!!!

I have had a fantastic weekend, I went hiking both friday and saturday. I love getting out in nature and hike. It gives me such an inner peace. Taking a brake from our everyday busy life is very important for our health and sanity. I love having ‘ME’ time or family time away from the craziness.

We have a tendency to get caught up in work, technology, being busy with stuff all the time. We have become addicted to be connected to the world 24/7. If we forget our phones or the battery dies we feel lost naked not knowing what to do now.

Being so ready and available all the time removes us from thinking, being creative and intuned with ourselves. It also creates lots of different stresses. When taking a brake from our built up reality and getting back to basics, out in nature our body and mind will be renewed, refreshed and relaxed.

Pictures of my friday hike at Will Rogers state park. It was fantastic and when I was at the inspiration point I ran in to 3 older ladies who were nice enough to take my pictures 🙂 One of them is going to visit Stockholm among other countries with some friends next year.

Snack time 🙂 in Westwood after my hike. I walked passed this fruitstand and ofcourse I had to get a bag of fresh fruit. I love it and miss this, we don’t have it in Sweden. Of course I can make my own, but its so nice to just go there and tell the guy what you want and he chop it up for you. I had pinapple, watermelon, mango, jicama, cucumber with some chili, salt and lemon 😀 Then I had to try this kombucha that people are talking about, so I went to Whole Foods and got some that has raspberry and chiaseeds and some seaweed snacks that I also miss.

Saturday I went to Mount Baldy in San Bernadino County with my lovely friends Malachi, Sandra and Jory I had such an awesome time. It was a little hard for me since I’m the unfit one but I made it up 😀 I learnt that I should not carry so much with me it was too heavy LOL.  We took the ski lift down that was scary at first since I am terrified of hights. But after a few minutes it was really nice and I could enjoy the view. When we came down Malachi had some fresh coconut in the car and it was very refreshing and delicious to drink one.

I want to do some more hiking I hope I can fit some in 😀 On saturday evening I had dinner with my family away from home to celebrate ‘dads’ birthday. We had some yummy mongolian bbq mmm.

Then sunday I went to church and it was great seeing so many of my friends. I challenged one of my friends from church Brandon Fobbs that we both have to make one painting each by the end of this year. He needed the free creative challenge he likes to draw within the lines 😉 hehehe and I can use one too to get back to my creativity. So we’re on dude 😀
