Look at this breakfast I made for this wonderful Saturday morning! I've wanted to try almond flour for the longest time so I bought that yesterday! This morning I obviously had to use it so I made this Granola Yoghurt Berry Almond Madness! This is how I made it: layer vanilla yoghurt, granola, raspberries, cottage cheese, almond flou and flax seeds. Repeat until the glass is filled! I ate finn crisp with eggs, pepper turkey, sea salt and fresh basil as well, a glass of juice and a cup of steaming hot coffee. It was heavenly. It is beautiful out today so after watching Big Bang Theory for absolutely too long I'll probably go out for a run! Or not. Anyhow. Enjoy your Saturday folks!


trouble melts like lemon drops, high above the chimney tops

Remember how I made overnight-oats-in-a-jar the other day? I got all bored from studying so I made this personalized breakfast-jar. It says My Oatmeal Jar! Isn't it adorable? That night I made the overnight oats like I made last time, only I added cardamom and skipped the bananas. It seriously tasted like freshly baked cinnamon buns...weirdly enough. However it was delish!

happy birthday have a nice life

Today is a special day for this little scrumpy dumpling. MY BABY BROTHER TURNS ELEVEN! He got breakfast in bed and a bunch of presents! For example, a whole week at some soccer summer camp called Milan Junior Camp, with professional soccer players as coaches and stuff. Perfect for my brother! I made the cake together with my mom after a request from William himself. He wanted a Super Mario cake, and well, that's what he got! Tonight after dinner we have hide-and-seek-in-the-dark and Tintin - The Movie on the agenda. It will be a blast!

around the corner everyday

Yesterday I made this for breakfast. Oatmeal made with rolled oats, psyllium seeds and flax seeds; topped with kiwi and raspberries. An egg with sprinkles of salt. Green rose and pinapple tea. Rye crisp bread with pepper turkey and avocado. Exotic fruit juice with fresh blood orange pieces.

A scrumptious breakfast on a regular wednesday.

don't you think that you could use some charm?

I made this as my dinner the other day when it was only my sister and I at home. We had just come back from our camp in the mountains and our fridge were --- empty. It was ridiculous. There was nothing to eat. That's a lie though. Anyways, everything on this plate is from the freezer. I had forgot how good frozen vegetables actually are! What I made looks very similar to something I just posted but oh well. This is what it is: broccoli, green beans, soy beans, spinach, cherry tomatoes, salmon, lentils, sunflower seeds and pesto. Freggin yummy is what it was!

super duper fast granola scrumptiousness

When I came home today I had the strongest craving for granola. Or to be more specific, homemade granola with coconut flakes in it. We did not have any granola whatsoever at home so I had to take action. Granola usually takes a long time to do since the roasting is supposed to be done in the oven but I had no patience for that. Therefore I just made in a regular frying pan on the stove and that worked out just fine! And took no longer than 5 minutes. For real. You can mix pretty much whatever you want when you make granola but this is how I did it!

add as much as you like of every ingredient, there are no measurements really...

coconut flakes
rolled oats
crushed rye
goji berries
dried apricots cut into pieces
sunflower seeds
flax seeds

Roast everything in a pan for approximately five minutes. Stir the entire time so nothing gets burnt! Tip: When the goji berries have gone from a reddish color to an orange one and they are puffy, you know it's done! Eat with flavorless yoghurt and drizzle some honey on top instead. So, so, so good!

breathtaking bran bread bliss

I made this bread last night as a prep for the coming week up in the mountains. Full of fibers and seeds and other scrumptious things. You'll stay full forever. I promise.


50 g yeast
8 dl water
1 pack (500g) wheat bran
1 dl crushed rye
8 dl wholewheat spelt flour
1 dl crushed flax seeds
1/2 dl psyllium seeds
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp salt

1. Heat water to 37 degrees celcius. Crumble yeast into a big bowl. Add salt and honey.
2. Dissolve yeast with water when it has reached the right temperature. Add wheat bran, flour, rye and seeds.
3. Knead for 5-10 minutes. The dough is supposed to be sticky when you're done so don't add more flour if it all messy.
4. Put a baking sheet in a big roasting pan. Pour the dough (batter..) in the pan and pull it all the way out to the edges. It is supposed to cover the whole pan.
5. Cut into pieces, brush with some cold water and sprinkle som wheat bran on top. Let rise for 40 minutes under a a piece of cloth.
6. Now, preheat oven to 225 degrees celcius. Bake bread in the oven for 20 minutes when finsihed rising. Let cool on a rack. Eat!

couscous with brie cheese and chanterelles

After running for 80 freaking minutes you are pretty hungry to say the least. So, I made THIS for lunch today! I love cooking and making up new dishes and such. To just use what you have at home and make the best out of it is kind of fun, I think... Today I used every single green vegetable we had in our freezer for one part of the dish and then a little bit of this and a little bit of that for the other part. You know what, it came out so well and it only took like 20 minutes to do it! When I eat lunch I rarely eat any kind of meat. I want it to feel fresh, and what other way to do that than pretty much only have veggies on your plate?


2 dl couscous
2 dl water
1 tbsp canola oil

2 dl chanterelles
1 apple cut into pieces
3/4 dl raisins
1/2 brie cheese cut into pieces

1. Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Instantly add couscous and oil and let set for a few minutes.
2. Sauté chanterelles in butter for a few minutes until they have a lovely golden brownish color.
3. Add apple pieces to the chanterelles and let sizzle for a few more minutes.
4. Mix couscous, chanterelles, apple pieces, raisins and brie cheese in a separate bowl. DONE!


soy beans

Simply mix everything together in optional amounts. Fry in a pan for approximately 10 minutes until gooey and golden brown. Add some salt and pepper to it. Serve!

a breakfast-in-a-jar kind of day

This is a new thing I found on probably the coolest food blog ever: italktofood! It's called Overnight Oats In A Jar! I found it last night when I was already in bed but I had to get up and make because I got so excited about it. It looks questionable I'll admit that, but it was delish! If you love oatmeal like I do you'll enjoy the most out of this, cause it is already done when you wake up in the morning, hence the name overnight oats. I added banana pieces and milk to it in the morning. Good decision I must day.

This is how you make it! The measurements are the American ones so if you don't have those just use the regular Swedish ones and a coffe cup for the cup measurements.


1/2 cup Rolled Oats
1/2 tbsp psyllium seeds
1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup frozen raspberries

Put everything in a jar the night before you'd like to eat it. Stir, screw the lid on and wait. Eat straight out of the jar with milk and banana pieces! So yummy.

stop, oh yes, wait a minute mister postman

My two friends and I are officially spending a whole month of our summer in the magnificent city of SAN FRANCISCO! The dates are set, the plane tickes are bought and we have the living situation all figured out. We're actually going to live in a city called San Carlos, only 30 minutes away from San Fran, it will be fabulous. It is so unreal to me right now that we're really going to LIVE THERE! There are so many things we will be able to do when we're there! I mean for example we could go to the world's largest flea market in San José, go bike riding in the Golden Gate Park, go fishing off some random cool pier somewhere, visit Yosemite (probably the prettiest and most amazing national park in the world), listen to live jazz music in downtown San Francisco on a regular week night, go sailing in San Francisco Bay, see the sun set, or rise for that matter, by the shore off the Pacific Ocean, stay inside and watch movies just because we can, go to the weekly farmer's market and buy fresh food and veggies, have picnics and I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT MORE!? I am so far beyond excited that I wouldn't be surprised if I pooped rainbows right now.

These pictures are from when I was there last summer with my family, kind of weird pictures, but I like them.
