Homemade Granola

As a follow-up on the homemade crispbread I made yesterday I made a delicious homemade müsli today. It is almost the same ingredients actually and it is just as simple! I usually just put in a little what I have at home so you can exclude or include whatever nuts, seeds, or dried fruit that you want.

This is what I use:

6 dl gluten-free oats

1 dl almonds (chopped)

1 dl cashews (chopped)

1 dl walnuts (chopped)

1 dl sesame seeds

2 dl sunflower seeds

1 dl flax seeds

1 dl coconut flakes

3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

5 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons hot water

some cinnamon

->I start with mixing all the dry ingredients and then add the coconut oil, honey, and water and mix it until it’s all a little wet (not too wet!). Then I pour it on a baking paper and pour some more honey and cinnamon on top before I put it in the oven for about 30 minutes on 175 degrees Celsius. The time might vary a lot though depending on your oven so keep an eye on it and stir like every 5 minutes. When you take it out, let it cool down and then add to your yoghurt, smoothie, oatmeal, or just eat as it is! It’s dangerously good!

I just want to eat it all right away! (The big pieces are the best hehe)

Homemade Crispbread

I am not a bread lover, actually rarely eat any kind of bread at all, but if I do I most likely bake this bread myself. When I do make this bread I always eat it up within like 2 days because it is so crispy and delicious. I got the recipe from my mum, and her bread always turn out better… I don’t know what it is about mum’s making food, it always turn out better even though we are following the same recipe?

Here is the simple recipe:

1 dl almond flour

1 dl cornstarch

1 dl raw sunflower seeds

1 dl sesame seeds

1/2 dl flax seeds

1 dl raw pumkin seeds

1/2 dl melted coconut oil

2 1/2 dl hot water

a little salt

->You just mix all the dry ingredients and then you add the melted coconut oil + the hot water and mix. Then pour the dough on a baking paper and add some salt on top before you put it in the oven for at least an hour in 150 degrees Celsius. When you take it out, let it cool down and then break into pieces and EAT! I usually eat mine with either avocado and cottage cheese or peanut butter and banana!

One week ✔️

Finally I can say that one-third of the time with the cast is over. Even tough it’s two weeks left and that sounds like a really long time to me right now. I know the time will pass faster than I think! Staying positive and slowly getting “used” to live with the cast and with that everything I do takes like double the time as usual hehe. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? 😊

POSITIVITY

“Keep your thought POSITIVE because your thoughts becomes your words.

Keep your words POSITIVE because your words becomes your behavior.

Keep your behavior  POSITIVE because your behavior becomes your habits.

Keep your habits POSITIVE because your habits becomes your values.

Keep your values POSITIVE because your values becomes your destiny“.

-Mahatma Gandhi

I found this quote on a image on Pinterest and I just can’t address enough how important it is to stay positive through tough situations and times. I am in a setback myself right now, but trying to look at it from a positive perspective and realize that this is what will make my future better makes it easier. I also know that my setback might be nothing compared to others, and that I actually have no reason to complain about my life at all. So all I wanted to say with this post and quote is that try to make the best of everyday even though you think you’re not in an good place in life right now.

Happiness in a little bottle

Got really happy when I saw Fitnessgurus new product – Stevia drops! I have always wanted to try to flavor my food (everything from pancakes, yoghurt, use in baking, and my coffee) with stevia drops (and Fitnessguru have so many different flavors!) because I have heard and read so much about it on different blogs and websites. This is how Fitnessguru describes the new stevia drops:

“Fitnessguru® Stevia Drops is the natural and calorie free option for sweetness and flavour and can be used in everything from smoothies, yoghurt, quark and healthy baking to drinks such as natural protein shakes, tea and coffee. Make Stevia Drops a part of your healthy recipes! Stevia Drops is an excellent flavouring for you who want to enjoy sweets and at the same time decrease the intake of sugar. It is a natural liquid and calorie free sweetener, extracted from the plant Stevia. Stevia contains glycosides, which is even sweeter than sugar and the reason to the sweet taste. The product is flavoured with natural aroma which adds a delicious flavour and sweetness without the usage of sugar.”

University of Oregon Women’s Tennis Team 2015

Our new poster got released yesterday, just in time for our first home match now on Saturday against Minnesota at 11am. I am getting really impatient because I really want to play with my team and I love the whole spirit/feeling with the dual tennis season, but I just have to stay positive and hope that these next three weeks will really heal my inflamed ankle. Also, I’m following the Australian Open a little.. But Federer is out already so I have to focus more on the women’s side where my favorite Sharapova is still in! All this tennis around me makes me miss it big time! Cannot believe I haven’t played for real since the beginning if October! But I AM going to make my comeback soon 😇

Homemade meat sauce

Today’s dinner ended up being a quick and healthy meat sauce made by me and Daan 🙂 we just used: 800g beef, 1 chopped onion, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can tomato paste, and 1/2 a bag taco spice. Started with putting the onions and garlic in the pan until it gets a little see through and than place it on a plate and put the beef in the pan instead. When the beef is almost all brown add the onion back and then all the other ingredients and let it boil for 5 minutes. Serve with gluten free pasta or zucchini noodles!
