Yesterday we had a little family gathering for my mothers birthday and for my birthday, which is next week. I was in charge of the food & dessert, I decided for baked vegetable risotto and carrot cake. I´m not a big cake person, but if there is one cake I do love, it is carrot cake. I found a vegan recipe on a Norwegian veggie food blog Vegetarbloggen.no

She is so inspiring when it comes to finding new ideas for food & desserts, with weekly updates. The carrot cake was an success, it tasted amazing. I followed the recipe, just changing the normal sugar with brown sugar, as I think it has a nicer flavour and a tiny bit healthier. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible,  but it is ok to make exceptions sometimes.

YES CHOCOLATE CAN ABSOLUTELEY BE VEGAN & DELICIOUS 

if there is one thing I´m pretty sick of hearing is that ” ah pore you, you cant eat chocolate anymore!?” First of all, the main ingredients in chocolate comes from the cocoa bean, which is a plant. Yes a plant. So making chocolate without diary products is super easy. Second of all, I can eat any chocolate I please, but I choose not too. It is not because I can´t. Being vegan is thankfully becoming easier and cheaper, as the demand is rising, so finding amazing delicious chocolate is not an issue anymore.


My two favourite brands that I´ve tried so far, is the brand called Loving Earth, which is so creamy and delicious not to forget the packaging is just so pretty. Second is a Norwegian brand called Berits, which have a coconut one and raspberry one, both so tasty.

The best part, you dont even have to be vegan to love these chocolates

If you, just like me, want to eat delicious food, still be ethical, healthy & satisfied to the max?!

The you have to visit Oslo Raw, either if you live in Oslo or just passing by. Oslo Raw are one of the few spots that have 100% plant based & natural food, drinks. cakes and other amazing sweets here in Oslo. The cafe is very small and cosy, so it can be a bit difficult to get a seat, but duringer warmer days you can sit outside, which helps a lot.

 

Lovely staff, fair prices, plant-based, healthy, delicious as it gets.  

 

Oslo is slowly catching on the plant-based trend, so cafes and restaurants are finally starting to offer a better variety of  plant-based foods and I`m sure there will be more all plant-based” cafes or restaurants on the market the next coming years.

Hi lovelies, it is Monday. Almost half way through December and all though I dont really care to much for christmas, I am going to spend my days off with my family in Larvik. I´m working until the 23rd, so I do not have much time this year preparing food and I dont wanna put to much pressure on my mum either.

I therefor did some research, as it is going to be 3 days of family time and food, I wanted to eat something a bit different than usual. I did some research and found the perfect answer to my food dilemma.

Happy weekend to everyone

 

Autumn & winter months are defiantly perfect for creating many different soups and stews, creating soups are easy, quick and often very healthy. The only “problem” is that you often will not get enough protein if you create vegetarian soups, our at least that is many peoples way of thinking.

A easy solution to this problem is simply adding plant protein to the soups. I almost always blend my soups, to create smooth and silky thick soups, so adding plant protein is amazingly easy and does not change the taste of the soup at all. I simply blend either beans, chick peas or lentils into the soup.

Protein problem solved.


A healthy flavourful tomato soup is a perfect autumn soup to add plant protein into. I also made a simple quinoa salad on the side to create a more complete meal. 

TOMATO SOUP

Chopped tomato fresh & from a can

Celery and celery leafs

Lentils

Garlic, chilli & onion

Salt & pepper & chopped basil

Tomato paste

SALAD 

Quinoa

Celery & celery leafs

Grilled mushroom & zucchini

Salad leafs

Hope you have a tasty weekend ahead lovely people

Happy weekend lovelies, hope you have some nice plans this Saturday?

It´s a food festival going on in Oslo, with tastings of Norwegian produced products and several events around the city, we are going to check it out a bit later, but first I wanted to share a great DIY project that I just finished with my mum.

 

HOMEGROWN DRIED HERBS

My mum has a lovely garden with loads of pretty flowers, but more interesting, a huge herb garden. With; oregano, thyme, mint, parsley, lavender and a few others as well.
Drying herbs is easy, you pick a huge bunch, better do it before it gets to cold, so end of August beginning og September is a good time. Either lay them flat on a tray or hang them up, best to keep them in a dry place. They need a few weeks to dry, so be patient.

 

When they are dry enough, you just pull the leafs of the stick/branch. So you only get the herb leafs, then crush them a bit, so it realises more of the flavour and it will also be easier to use it in everyday cooking. I always keep old glass jars, which is perfect storage for the dried herbs, it looks nice, so it is also a really nice little gift idea.

This week Jens and I had dinner at the Farm House for my birthday, a rustic small restaurant, with only one long table, seating app 14 people in total. The food is a set menu of 5 courses, that changes every week and they cater for any dietary requirements.

Food, service, atmosphere and wine was absolutely divine, really amazing, one of the best meals I´ve had in a restaurant. They believe in slow travelled and slow produced real food, so everything is sourced local and sustainable.

Have a lovely Sunday gorgeous people

Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a fabulous weekend, reminding yourself that you are gorgeous and perfect just the way you are!?

Something I´m really exited about lately, is that the focus on eating less meat and dairy are increasing, and vegetarian and vegan products are becoming much easier for consumer to purchase.  For those who do pay attention and care about global warming, you would already know that the agriculture industry is one of the worst industries for our planet and health. So eating more plant-based is really important, even if you do not wanna be a full time vegetarian or vegan, you should lower your meat consumption.

I´ve been vegetarian for over 4 years, and the last six months almost 100% vegan. Which means I barely would eat anything from animals. As a healthy confident lover of eating plant-based I thought I would share some key food products with you guys that I believe are essential to live healthy on a diet without meat. As I prefer my food to be as clean and unprocessed as possible I do not really have a lot of “fake meat” in my diet, however if you are slowly trying to adjust to a more plant based diet, I do really recommend that as a subside to meat.


MY FOOD MUST HAVE`S


All sort of beans, chick peas & lentils

Kale, broccoli  spinach & avocado

Couscous, brown rice, soba noodles & pasta

Good quality rye bread

   Oats, chia seeds, nuts and seeds

B12 tablets

Non dairy milk – oat milk is my favourite followed by almond

bananas


Also all other vegetables and fruits, I find it important to eat all sorts, to keep the food interesting and varied, to make sure you cover all areas of needed nutrition, also with the occasional vegetarian “meat” burger og sausages.

I know a lot of sceptics think you will not get enough nutrition living on a plant-based diet, that you get sick and are scared of changing your food habits. I can honestly say I´ve never had any problems with my health or with sickness the last 4,5 years. I have not lost or gained weight, but as I´ve always been small, I´ve made sure to eat more to maintain a healthy weight. I have not lacked of any thing, besides low on B12 for a little period, before I started taking tablets for that, apart from that I feel so AMAZINGLY HEALTHY.

FUN FACTS

A planet based diet increases your changes of not getting sick from; diabetes, heart and disease, several types of cancer, and help you stabiles your weight. 

Your food shopping becomes much cheaper or you can purchase much more food for the same price as when you would include meat in your purchases. 

Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation.   [i]

Hi lovelies!

Hope you are having a good week so far, maybe a few more days of work or exams before you start the holidays?

I want to share with you a super easy breakfast smoothie, packed with all goodness giving your body a great start to the day. As we all know a good breakfast is so important to prepare your body and mind for a good productive and active day.

My breakfast smoothie is quite rich and deep in flavour as I´m using a few key spices, spices that have some really health benefits.

Cardamom – rich of vitamins, dietary fibre & proteins

Turmeric –  Fights off bacteria and infections, preventing alzheimers and cancer, a great spice for flavour and for health

matcha – full of antioxidants, loaded with energy and  it detoxify´s the body, which is just a few benefits

Oats – packed with fibres and proteins, minerals and vitamins

Chia Seeds – omega, protein and fibres – a must for you on a vegetarian or  vegan diet.

Berries or fruit of your choice – I usually go for blueberries or raspberries

On days I don´t have to rush off anywhere Ill make it into a smoothie bowl, topping it with fruit, seeds and what I have available. On a busy morning I´ll drink it straight from the jar, its super great as a on the go breakfast.


Have a lovely day everyone
