Vanilla Cauliflower Protein Oatmeal

Good morning people! Started this day with a 9k run in the lovely spring weather! Followed by some experiment in the kitchen for breakfast, which turned out great!

-> Start by melting the coconut oil in a pot on low heat. Take off the heat and add the egg. Stir well. Then add the rest of the ingredients except the protein powder. Put back on the stove on medium heat. Stir frequently until creamy. When it’s as creamy as you’d want it, take it off the heat and add the protein powder and stir well. Add your toppings and ENJOY!

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:

Raspberry-Chocolate mousse

Started this day with a slow 10k run to explore the city a little. For sure the best way to learn new routes and to find your way in a city not being used to, to go for a feel-good run!

After the run I made a delicious breakfast. A large bowl of chia-pudding (<- click for my recipe) topped with this raspberry-chocolate mousse, mulberries, gojiberries and raw cacao nibs. a perfect start! 

Raspberry-Chocolate Mousse (1 portion)

-> Start by mixing the casein powder with the water. Put in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Take out, add the frozen raspberries and use a stick-blender until it becomes smooth like ice cream. DONE! Easy, healthy, and delicious! 

 
The chia-pudding is paleo, the whole meal including the toppings is gluten free and free from added sugar! 

 

 

Zucchini Oatmeal

Last day in Nyköping before moving to Linköping! I had to do a breakfast of what I had left here in my kitchen. It actually ended up really well. The original recipe is my oatless oatmeal, which is my standard breakfast. But since I didn’t have all the ingredients and the exact same amount as it should be it became different, but good different! And I call it zucchini oatmeal since I used a whole zucchini.

Zucchini Oatmeal (1 portion)

-> I mixed together the chia seeds with 1 dl water the night before and let it stand in the fridge over night. Then in the morning I mixed everything in a pot, except the zucchini, to bring to boil on medium-heat. Stir frequently until creamy. Squeeze out the liquid from the zucchini and then add to the pot. Stir well until it’s all mixed and take off the heat. (Here you can add protein powder if you’d like, I buy my protein powder at Fitnessbutiken, they have many good tasty flavors). Add your desired toppings and ENJOY a healthy and DELICIOUS breakfast!

This breakfast is (if not adding any protein powder) 100% paleo, gluten free, dairy free, free from added sugar and low fodmap! 

Chocolate Inspired Oatmeal

I love to experiment with recipes I’ve already made in a try to make it even more perfect or to change the flavor just a little bit for a totally new feeling. This morning I made my oatless oatmeal but with a touch of chocolate, success!

Chocolate Oatless Oatmeal (1 portion)

-> Start by mixing the chia seeds with the water and let stand for 5 minutes. Add the mashed banana and then the rest of the ingredients to a pot, except the zucchini and the cacao nibs. Bring to boil and let boil on medium-heat until creamy. Add the shredded zucchini and stir well. When it is done, take off the heat and add the cacao nibs. Pour over to a bowl and add your toppings!
