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.

  • 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.

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

20150905_093541

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Coconut oil for cooking

Mix together and put coconut oil in the pan. Put on medium to high heat and pour in the mixture, let cook for 3-4 minutes before adding the blueberries. Then cook for another 7-10 minutes. I flipp mine over and cook on the top side too because I don’t like it to bee too gooey. I also used 2 small egg pans instead of a large pan.

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 😀
