Todays dinner: pasta con pomodorini freschi

Today was one of those days where I was seriously craving some take away. This craving was bad. As in really really bad. A pizza, maybe some sushi or what about kebab? Perhaps you are familiar with those days, where the cravings are building up in your head, and at the point where you’ll have to make up your mind, there are too many thoughts, and you don’t know anymore, what you really want. That’s what happened to me today. But then I thought that all in all, I was really craving some italian food, so I decided to make a yummy, easy, very filling italian pasta for dinner. After all, I had almost every ingredient in the fridge. Recipe:...

Date night

  Hi my amazing readers! Sorry for the lack of blogging the last week – but when a heat wave hits Denmark, you better take advantage of it, right? We never know how long it lasts haha. Saturday night was date night with my man. We enjoyed a chilled bottle of white wine and delicious food. We have been working intensely on a huge project for the last 6 months, so it’s important to spend some quality time together and just relax.     xo C

Roasted chicken

Today I wanted to share a very delicious and simple recipe – oven roasted chicken with a side salad. I usually make this for dinner, when I want something that is easy to make, but tastes and looks like you’ve spent the entire day in the kitchen prepping a lovely dinner. I really recommend that you try it out! Recipe: 1 organic free range chicken (a chicken that has lived a happy life simply just tastes better!) 1 organic lemon 2 tablespoons butter Garlic cloves (I use a lot of garlic) 2 tablespoons acacie honey Black pepper Sea salt Start by putting  butter, honey, chopped garlic and lemon zest in a pan, and cook on medium heat. Then you put...

Homemade granola

  Good morning sweeties. What better way to start a beautiful morning , then with homemade granola, strawberries and freshly brewed coffee? If there’s such a thing, please let me know. Todays breakfast was simple, healthy and easy, which is a huge plus, when you’re in a morning rush, but don’t want to miss out on a healthy breakfast before heading out. And lets be honest, a croissant or a muffin on the go, really doesn’t leave you fresh and energized. All you need is yogurt (a38, quark, cottage cheese, plant based  – whatever you prefer), granola and berries or fruit. For a yummy homemade granola you need some nuts, oats and acacia honey. Put 2 tablespoons of honey on...

Apricot smoothie

  Hi sweeties. We arrived home safe and sound last night, after a fantastic trip to Hamburg. Oh how I love that city! But as we were home quite late, we didn’t have the energy to go grocery shopping. Therefor it was quite a challenge to prepare breakfast earlier today. But what a little research can’t fix, and breakfast was soon in the making. Boiled eggs, espresso con panna (with a dash of coconutoil) and a fresh apricot smoothie. I found the smoothie recipe on Caroline Berg Eriksens blog (here), but since I didn’t have any peaches or lemons, I just added 4 fresh apricots and 1/2 a lime, and the result was really yummy and filling. xo C

Banana pancakes

  It’s monday again, a new week has started and it’s time to share a new recipe. This time I made something really simple, using only 2 ingredients, eggs and bananas. That’s how easy it can be, making yummy and healthy pancakes. All you need is 2 eggs and 1 banana! Put it in a blender until you have a smooth mixture. You can also add cinnamon, vanilla etc if you like. It gives a really good flavor to your pancakes. Put some butter or coconut oil on a medium warm pan. I prefer these two oils, as it can be very tricky flipping the pancakes, and I think that the oils you use play a big role in a...

Avocado toast

Todays simple lunch – Avocado toast All you need is rye bread, toast or crispbread (recipe here), mashed avocado, eggs, seas alt and black pepper. Also basil, tomatoes and lemon/lime are yummy to add.  Wow, it’s friday already! This week has gone by so fast. On tuesday we will get a visit from my grandparents, and on friday all four of us are driving to Hamburg for a weekend get away. I can’t wait, Hamburg is such an amazing city! Have you ever been there? My grandparents haven’t, so I’m excited to take the tourist guide role on me hah. Well obviously we are not only going for the touristy things, but also the food (oh how I’ve missed café Paris and Die...

Dinner tip

  Hi everyone! I wanted to share this yummy, simple and healthy dinner recipe with you guys – salmon with lemon sauce and salad. I make it every once in a while, and when I visited my family, they requested that I made this for them. Season the salmon with some sea salt, black pepper and honey, and put it in the oven at 200°C for about 15-20 minutes (depends on how you like your salmon). While the salmon is cooking, prep a simple salad. I basically use whatever’s in my fridge. In this particular one, I used salad mix, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. For the lemon sauce, which is like a dressing (no heat needed), I...

Add some color

Pants H&M / Shoes Asics Smoothie: Frozen blueberries, banana, quark and water – simple but yummy When I’m lacking motivation, wether it’s to go to the gym or live a healthy lifestyle, I always make sure to add some color to my life. Colorful gym wear, colorful smoothies and even colorful note books, where I can keep track on my progress or write down yummy recipes. As you can see in the pictures, it’s all about purple’ish tones right now. As I’m very organized and even have some sort of OCD, it had to match. Don’t get me wrong, there is no need in spending tons of money on workout clothes, I just find it very motivational. I found these...
