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.

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 😀

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.

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.
