Started this lovely Saturday with a walk with my brother around Stångån. Great to get some time to talk and catch up! After that I made myself a healthy nutritious breakfast of this simple green smoothie, 2 boiled eggs, a kiwi and a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Weekend luxury.
Simple Green Smoothie (1 glass)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 2 dl frozen mango
- 2-3 dl coconut milk (or coconut water)
- 1 teaspoon Chlorella powder from Alivefoods
-> Just put everything in a blender and mix until smooth. Enjoy your nutritious green smoothie!This smoothie is paleo-friendly, which means it’s also all gluten free, dairy free and free from added sugar.
Mum came to visit this weekend for some real mum-daughter time! Ended last night with a protein boost! A really good alternative to sweets, a mid-day snack, post-workout snack or as a dessert!
Peanut Protein Smoothie (1 high glass)
-> Put everything in a mixer and blend until smooth. Sprinkle the chocolat on top after poured in a high glass and enjoy!
My cute mum, happy with a delicious gluten free smoothie, high in protein, low in carbs and without added sugar!
I tried a new green powder in my drink this morning and all I can say it FINALLY a powder that is super healthy and still tastes good. I have tried so many different recipes with chlorella powder, spirulina powder, wheat grass powder and so on and I have found recipes that works and actually taste OK, but this one tasted GOOD!
My new powder is called Green Superfood with Lemon-Lime flavor and it can be found on bodystore.com. It is all raw and plant-based, but also organic, vegan, gluten and dairy free!
Green Tasty Superfood Smoothie (1 high glass)
-> Just put all the ingredients in a mixer and mix until smooth. Pour over to a high glass and enjoy a fresh and DELICIOUS nutritious smoothie!
This smoothie is 100% paleo, gluten free, dairy free anf free from added sugar.
This recipe I’ve done multiple times and it’s always appreciated by the people daring to taste this healthy alternative. Doesn’t matter if they prefer to eat healthy or not because these are pretty sweet anyway!
Healthy Chocolate Balls (8-10 medium sized balls)
-> Put everything in a mixer and mix until a dough. Roll into balls and then in the coconut flakes. Put in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
These chocolate balls are 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar! If you want to have some extra protein you can add 1/2-1 scoop of casein with chocolate flavor. Mine is from Fitnessbutiken.
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.
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:
- Crunchy peanutbutter
- Creamy peanutbutter
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!
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
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.
