Vanilla Protein Banana Bread

Had a little baking session this morning and one of the things I made was this healthy banana bread. It’s really easy & quick to make and it only needs 30 minutes in the oven. So the total time for making this amazing snack it around 35-40 minutes!

Vanilla Protein Banana Bread 

-> Turn the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Start by whisking the eggs, water and honey until fluffy. Add the coconut oil and whisk a little more. Add all the dry ingredients and whisk until all blended well. Mash the bananas in a separate bowl and then add to the dough. Whisk some more and then pour over to a bread baking dish covered with baking paper. Put in the oven on the lowest part for 30 minutes. Take out and let cool a little before taking it out off th baking dish.

This banana bread is a great low carb and high protein alternative to any bread or snack! It is 100% gluten free and free from added sugar. Also depending on what protein powder you use it can also be dairy free. 

Coconut Vanilla Cauliflower Oatmeal

Experimented a little bit this morning with changing only one ingredient for my favorite oatmeal and I think it became even better! 

The original recipe can be found HERE.

Coconut Vanilla Cauliflower Oatmeal (1 portion)

-> Start by putting the coconut oil in a pot on low heat until it’s all melted. Take off the heat and add the egg + egg whites, stir well. Then add the rest of the ingredients, except the shredded cauliflower, and stir well. Put back on the stove on medium heat. Stir well until it becomes thick and creamy. Then add the shredded cauliflower (I used a mixer for the cauliflower) and stir well until it’s all mixed. Take it off the heat and pour over to a bowl and add your desired toppings. 

My favorite combination of toppings for this oatmeal is:

  • Blueberries
  • Crunchy peanutbutter
  • Creamy peanutbutter
  • Gojiberries
  • Mulberries 

This oatmeal is 100% paleo. Do you want the topping to be paleo-friendly as well? Switch out the peanutbutter to for example almond or cashew butter! 

Coconut Vanilla Chia-pudding 

One of my absolute favorite breakfasts, and also one of the easiest and quickest to prepare, got to start my Tuesday. 

Coconut Vanilla Chia-pudding (1 portion)

-> Prepare the evening before (or at least 2-3 hours ahead) by mixing the coconut milk, chia-seeds, vanilla powder and 1 dl of the water in a jar with a lid. Stir well until all chia-seeds are covered. Put in the fridge over night.

The next morning, take it out from the fridge and add the zucchini and cauliflower. If it’s too thick you can add the rest of the water here. Stir well and then it’s ready! If you, like me, prefer a warm chia-pudding you can heat it up in the microwave for a minute. Then add your toppings and enjoy! 

My toppings today:

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Creamy almondbutter
  • Crunchy almondbutter
  • Gojiberries

This amazing breakfast is 100% paleo, which also means gluten free, dairy free and free from added sugar! 

If you want some more protein for your breakfast it works perfectly to add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder at the end and stir well.  

Green Health Boost Drink

It was a long time since I made one of my green smoothie, so today when I woke up I decided to make myself a real health boost breakfast. It ended up being a green drink filled with a lot of different superfoods, 2 perfectly boiled eggs and some fresh strawberries!

Green Health Boost Drink (1 glass)

  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 kiwi
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 5 cm of a cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon Chlorella powder from Alivefoods 
  • 3 dl coconut water
  • a piece of fresh ginger
  • 1/2 green apple

-> Just put everything in a mixer and mix until smooth. Sometimes I like to add some bee pollen on top!

This breakfast is 100% paleo-friendly! If you have a favorite recipe for a green smoothie or drink, feel free so share!

Women’s Health Half Marathon 2016

I DID IT! With exactly one year since the Eugene Half Marathon and without proper half marathon training and no runs longer than I think 15km I got a new PERSONAL RECORD.

A Great short weekend in Stockholm with my parents, my mum also ran the race and did great! Also super-fun to meet Gabbi there before the start time. Old tennis friends leaving our rackets at home to run a half marathon instead!

So I did not have any goals except managing to run through the whole race, but ended up with a great result, which I’m more than satisfied with! Ended up on a 14th place out of 3600 girls running (both girls competing in long distance and girls like me doing it for fun). Really fun to run pass so many girl knowing they actually train and compete in this hehe felt great!

My time ended on 1:30:53 for 21.3km! 

Here are some pictures from after the run:
