Chia Pudding – yummy, fast… and of course healthy ;-)

I have to admit that the first time I had a go at making the now oh-so-trendy Chia Pudding for the first time, the result was the same as that initial sip of shampoo you get down your throat as a kid when you don´t listen to your mum asking you to keep your eyes and mouth closed as she is washing your hair (aged 3 or so 😉 🙂 ). Totally not yum, or anything close to it. So I stayed off making any of these the-worlds-easiest-and-fastest-plus-superhealthy breakfasts for almost a year, savouring the tasty one´s I could get in cafés in Östersund, Göteborg, Köbenhavn, Haarlem, Heemstede, Amsterdam… Then a few weeks ago this recipe landed in our shopping cart – can´t remember if it was from Dekamarkt or AH, but anyway – it´s totally yum! Not a hint of shampoo taste, just total bliss. If you´d like to try it, here it is; Ingredients; 1 can full fat coconut milk 40 gr chia seeds 2 tbspns honey or maple syrup 1 tspn vanilla …

Super healthy, yummy crackers in no time

Being allergic to gluten means it is not that easy to just grab something when it´s snack time. Which might feel sligth annoying at times , yet is is a true blessing for your health as you get in to using more and more pure foods – cooking and creating from scratch. I found the base of this recipe in one of those free magazines you get at your supermarket, some months ago. As usual I did not have all the ingredients in the house as I got to test this recipe yesterday , but I did have quite some things I could supplement with. Imagine my surprise when these were not just super easy and mega fast to make, but actually tasted divine :-). Go ahead and try for yourself! Ingredients; 150 grams almond flour 70 grams seeds – I used a mix of flaxseed, pumpkinseed and sunflower seeds this time 1,5 tbspn olive oil 1 sligtly whisked egg 2 tspns of dried herbs Heat your oven to 180 degrees C. Mix all the …

Workshop Yoga & Nutrition – Sweet Surrender

Eva´z Yoga & Pilates, Herenweg 89, Heemstede Sunday 13/12 , 13.00 – 16.30 Mid December, and we find ourselves halfway towards Christmas – most likely already clogged up by great-fun-but-maybe-not-so-great-for-our-overall-health “kerst-borrels”, Christmas get-togethers in the shape of brunches, lunches, dinners and more next to stress building up for the holidays. The feeling of neither having enough time nor energy to fill up our energy-reserves with closing off the old year, planning the new year and fitting Christmas celebrations in between those two up ahead quite often leaves us feeling overwhelmed. There is no better occasion or reason than this to take a small time out, to step on the yoga mat, surrender to what your body and mind truly needs to charge, to re set and to step in to the light which the holiday season actually truly does bring! In this workshop with the theme “Sweet Surrender” we will be guided to approach all the practices of yoga (meditation, breath, postures, relaxation) with openness. We will explore what it means to completely surrender the …

More Bliss Balls….

I know the word “bliss balls” is most likely worn out or “outdated” already, but I just lovelovelove it as I feel it so serves it´s purpose. The original recipe is not mine, even though it is scribbled down on a piece of paper on my kitchen table right now. I must have gotten it off Instagram or somewhere else in cyberspace originally and true to my cooking hero Stephanie Mazier from Appetite Voyage´s teachings I tweaked whatever the original was a bit to fit the taste and texture of what tasted and felt good today. Which is something I would not have dared to do some years ago 🙂 – but thank´s largely to all the cooking and nutritional events, workshops and course Stephi and I have given together I have ventured out of my comfort zone in many places. I would like to dedicate this particular recipe to Swami Ma Tripurashakti Bharati, whom I love hanging out in the kitchen with – where she with just as much humour and complete fearlessness as …

Healthy pancakes, yeah!

Another favourite in cyber space, which has totally become both a hit and a favourite in the household here. We´ve had a lot of visitors the past year since we moved up to Sweden. With us now living quite a way away from the supermarket it means our guests have kind of had to eat whatever this gluten allergic nutritionist whips up for herself every morning. Thank G – or thank Cyberspace – for these pancakes is the word I have gotten from basically all of them this past winter ;-).So I guess it is time to share my own pimped version of what was initially called the “2 ingredient pancake” :-), with thanks to all our dear friends who keep popping by with SAS and SJ; Ingredients (per person); 1 banana 2 eggs cinnamon baking soda (if you´d like, leaving it out is fine too and does not affect the taste) 1 tbsp buckwheat flakes or kernels 1 tbspn oat flakes 1 teaspoon each of all superfood berries and seeds you have in the …

Detox your mind

Detox is a word which has become almost as common as the word “Iphone” in our every day lingo. Even though we might not know all the exact down-to-the-nano-particle-of-certain-molecules-or-cells-details-and-functions of neither the word “Detox” nor the word “Iphone” , we are all aware that both words are necessary for our survival ( 😉 ). Or at least we know that one is – the other we most likely feel like it would be pretty difficult to survive without. Well aware of the fact that Detoxification is the process in our bodies which rids our system of toxins we have become more and more picky about what we put in our mouths, on our skin, the quality of the air which we breathe in and more. But what about the things we let in to our minds through the gateways of our senses? And what about the stuff that comes out of our mouths as we speak? Is the music you are playing, the books, magazines and blogs you are reading, the movies you are watching, …

Blissing out on figs

I know Instagram is flooded with pictures and recipes for “bliss balls”, but I just loooooovelovelove the word and have to admit that I have gotten pretty hooked on these truly blissfull, healthy, yummy and just wonderful little circular bullets of pure joy. Bliss balls , simply! So, here is a recipe so easy it is impossible to fail, so quick there is no way you can run to the store and get a Snickers even if the store is 10 meters away in the amount of time it takes to make these, so yummy you might consider to quit chocolate (I said “might” OK 😉 ) and so healthy you will be doing yourself nothing but good. Ready? Ingredients; 200 gr dried figs 2 tbspns coconut oil 1 dl rolled oats 2 tbspns honey Nuts Mix it all together using whatever mixer you have in house. I used a hand held mixer/blender and found it worked better if I chopped the figs in smaller pieces before starting to mix. Roll in to the shape …

Banana & Carrot Muffins

I know, I know – it has been ages since my last post…. But that does not mean the inspiration was gone, it was just life that kind of “took over”. Now with spring and long days, evenings and even nights as the sun now sets around 23.45 up here and is back up again around 04.00 there is plenty of energy and time to try new recipes. Yesterday evening I baked these gluten, dairy and sugar free muffins – filled to the brim with awesome anti oxidants like carotenoids, with potassium, fiber, heart healthy fats, vitamin D, healing spices, vital-for-bone-muscle-and-brain-vitamins-and-minerals, packed with vitamin A and protein. Aside from that long list of good reasons to try these, they were yummy! Only took 5 minutes to whip together and then 20 – 25 minutes in the oven – so, lack of time does not justify as a reason to not try! Ingredients; 3 finely grated carrots (medium size) 3 eggs 2 dl almond flour 2 tspns baking powder 0,5 tspn sea salt 1 tbspn cinnamon …
