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 😀

Blueberry Blackberry Smoothie Bowl

Its starting to get really cold here, last night it was -1c or 30f. Brrrrrr I get cold very easily. I prefer sunshine and never below 20c or 70f 🙂 Thats what I loved when I lived I Los Angeles, it was warm most of the year with lots of sunshine.

I did not realize how much I am affected by sunshine. On monday it was sunny and I had energy and felt good on tuesday it was gloomy and rainy and I was tired the whole day lacking energy.  Then yesterday it was sunny again and I had lots of energy and my mood was great. Today again it is gloomy and I feel tired hahaha. So I have started to take D vitamins to see if that will help. I will report back in a few weeks.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm I love smoothies I have them almost everyday. I tend to have a lot of different ingredients in my smoothies. Its a great way to get different nutrients in all at once 🙂

Det börjar bli kallt här, i natt var det-1c eller 30F. BRRRRRR Jag fryser mycket lätt. Jag föredrar sol och aldrig under 20c eller 70f 🙂 Det är vad jag älskade när jag bodde jag Los Angeles, det var det varmt större delen av året med massor av solsken.

Jag insåg inte hur mycket jag påverkas av solsken. I måndags var det soligt och jag hade energi ochallt kändes bra, på tisdagen var det trist och regnigt och jag var trött hela dagen orkeslös. Sedan igår var det soligt igen och jag hade massor av energi och mitt humör var på topp. Idag igen är grått och jag känner mig trött hahaha. Så jag har börjat ta D-vitaminer för att se om det hjälper. Jag kommer att rapportera tillbaka om några veckor.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Jag älskar smoothies jag har dem nästan varje dag. Jag tenderar att ha en massa olika ingredienser i mina smoothies. Det är ett bra sätt att få många olika näringsämnen på en gång 🙂

Recept:

1/2 burk kokosmjölk
1 dl mandelmjölk
2 dl blåbär och björnbär tinade
1 liten banan
1 msk mandel smör
1 msk kakaokämor
1 tsk hampa protein (tillval)
1 tsk grön superfood (tillval)

Gör så här:

Lägg allt i en mixer, använder jag min nutribullet. Häll upp in en skål tillsätt toppning av ditt val. Jag använde kokos chips, Chia frön och solrosfrön.
