Another green breakfast to get a nutritious kick-start of this weekend. A green drink filled with superfoods too boost my energy level, my immune system and adding all the other healthy benefits of the ingredients. I also had two of my Cinnamon/Cardamom Banana Scones with spinach and cocktail tomatoes on top.
Green Superfood Drink (1 large glass)
- 1 banana
- 2-3 dl coconut milk
- a piece of fresh ginger, shredded
- 1 teaspoon Chlorella powder from Alivefoods
- 1 dl frozen mango
- 1 handful of fresh spinach
- juice from half a lime
-> Mix everything in a blender until smooth, pour over to a high glass and add some bee pollen on top. Enjoy!
This drink is 100% paleo and perfect for a fresh health boost to start the day with!
Do you also want to eat ice cream for breakfast? This healthy variety of sorbet, also called nice cream is super easy to make and delicious. A fresh start of the day!
Berry Sorbet (1 portion)
-> Put the banana and raspberries in a bowl and use a stick blender. Add a little milk at a time until it starts to become smooth like ice cream. Add the berry mix powder and blend until you see no banana or raspberry chunks. Serve in a bowl right away!
I filled my bowl with 250 grams of quark in raspberry & rhubarb flavor, a lot of almond butter and mulberries + incaberries. A Fresh and delicious start of the day. Fantastic when your breakfast taste like dessert, right?
This berry sorbet is 100% paleo. The quark is not paleo since its dairy, but the whole bowl is gluten free & free from added sugar!
For dinner today I wanted to make something quick since I got home from work pretty late, and one of my absolute favorite foods are different types of pesto. I tried a new recipe for a ruccola pesto. The original recipe is from ICA.se but I changed it a little bit. Also, the recipe says it is for 4-6 people…For me it last for 2 meals hehe. So YES I do love to have lots of pesto on my food!
Rucola Pesto (about 2 portions)
- 1 dl roasted sun-flower seeds
- 1 dl parmesan cheese
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 dl olive oil
- 65 grams of fresh rucola
- 1 teaspoon chlorella powder from Alivefoods
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- salt and black pepper
-> Start by mixing the sunflower seeds, garlic clove and shredded cheese in a food processor or in a bowl with a stick blender. Then add the olive oil, a little at the time. Then add the rest of the ingredients and taste with the salt and pepper for how much you will need.
I served the rucola pesto with bean pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli, mixed wok vegetables and shrimp. DELICIOUS and a SIMPLE dinner to make!
How wonderful isn’t it now when the sun is up in the mornings? It gives at least me so much more energy and positive thoughts! This morning I started with a great run and then followed by my absolute favorite oatmeal these days, Vanilla Coconut Oatmeal, topped with a Chocolate Ball Cream I mixed together last night. Delicious!
Chocolate Ball Cream (topping for 1 portion)
-> Just mix everything in a jar, put a lid on and let stand in the fridge over night. Pour over your oatmeal, smoothie bowl, pancakes, waffles or whatever you eat for breakfast in the morning! Today I also added strawberries, mulberries & gojiberries to my toppings!
This topping is 100% free from gluten and added sugar.
Started this day with a morning walk followed by a real health boost to breakfast. A green smoothie filled with nutrients, my Banana Coconut Scones (which is 100% paleo) topped with some veggies, kiwi and a large cup of coffee. Now I’m more than ready for this Sunday! I have failed to make green smoothies many times, but now I have learned what ingredients are necessary to not make it taste bitter. Instead this smoothie taste really fresh and a little sour! The secret is to add some citrus fruit in the mix, it takes away the bitterness which can be caused of greens or superfood powders.
Green Smoothie (1 glass)
-> Put everything in a mixer and blend until smooth. If you want it more creamy add more banana and if you like it more liquid add more milk. I topped my glass with some bee pollen.
And again I experimented with mixing two favorite breakfast recipes to one and the result ended up delicious! This time I mixed chia-pudding with my “oatless oatmeal” and topped it with almost too much goodies!
Chia-Banana Oatmeal (1 portion)
- 1 dl almond milk
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds from Mother Earth
- 1 banana
- 1/2 dl egg whites
- 2 tablespoons flax seeds
- 1/2 zucchini, shredded
- cinnamon & cardamom
-> Start by mixing the chia seeds and milk together in a pot and let stand for about 10-15 minutes. Then add the banana and mash it. Add the rest of the ingredients except the zucchini and turn on the heat on medium-high. Bring to boil and stir frequently. When it becomes creamy add the shredded zucchini and stir. Take off from the stove and pour over to a bowl. Add toppings and enjoy!
My toppings today:
This breakfast is all gluten free, dairy free and free from added sugar. Do you want it to be paleo? Switch out the peanut butter to another paleo-friendly nut butter!
This oatmeal was for me very filling, maybe because I topped it with a large mountain of almond butter? Anyway, it tasted great and is a perfect alternative to my other gluten and dairy free oatmeal recipes!
Buckwheat Caramel Oatmeal (1 portion)
-> Start by mixing the buckwheat and water in a pot. Bring to boil and stir frequently so that it doesn’t burn. Add the maca powder and stevia drops and stir a little more. Add the shredded zucchini, stir and take it off the heat. Pour over to a bowl and add toppings.
My toppings today:
This oatmeal is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar. The maca powder has a bit of a caramel/chocolate flavor, so it’s a perfect superfoods for this oatmeal to add extra caramel sweetness!
