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 …

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 …

Quick, yummy and easy lunch or dinner omelette

Here is a really fast, easy, yummy and healthy omelette – one of my fav fast lunches even though I guess it is orignially more of a dinner dish. Being Swedish I love having cooked lunches and just can´t handle or enjoy the fast and cold lunches that are always eaten here in The Netherlands (sandwich country when it comes to lunch 🙂 ). This omelette does not take a lot longer that what it takes to create one of the sandwiches the Dutch loves and it is so much more nutritious and filling. I hope you enjoy it , whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner or all of the above :-)! The recipe is for 2 portions. Ingredients; – 4 eggs – 2 egg whites – 1 yellow onion – ½ zucchini / courgette – 1 red capsicum – 150 g champions – 1 teaspoon oil – 2 tomatoes – 40 g cheese 10 % fat, if you are lactose intolerant you can use goat cheese – 2 dl boiled or canned kidney beans …

Sunny, simple and scrumptious

I am really honoured and happy to introduce Camilla Onell as a guest blogger here to all of you. Aside from being a beautiful person in the world and sharing her inspiring writing work on blogspot under Swedish Butterfly and One Great Mother, she is an amazing cook of healthy foods who makes our mouths water every day on Instagram. So, enjoy this, hopefully first of more to come, “scrumptious” recipe and guest blog from her! I just love sweet potatoes. For all their yummy vitamins, their rich taste and texture and not least, for their beautiful sunny colour that will improve any grey or stressful day for me. I always make a few extra sweet potatoes when I bake them in the oven (wrapped in tin foil, 200 degrees C for an hour). That way I have some delicious leftovers for a quick lunch during the week. Like this healthy, creamy sweet potato omelette that anyone could make within fifteen minutes. The recipe is for two persons or one person who is really hungry. You …
