I can not believe this week is over, what a relief. Just finished packing and are now meeting up with some friends for a few drinks, we fly out around 11 am tomorrow, so no craziness tonight. My bags are packed, so I thought I would share a few of my Bali essentials..

The raw detox I did last week was a really good week, filled with only fresh, healthy and delicious food, having a healthy lifestyle, without almost any dairy (milk products), meet or fish is really easy, as long as you are willing to spend some time cooking, adapt your routines and mindset and look for great food ideas to keep inspired to make meals free from meat. After the raw detox week, I´ve decided to do at least one raw salad for dinner every week, I´ve also made the super healthy berry smoothie bowl for breakfast almost every day.

– Recipe for the smoothie bowl –

2 spoons of oats, a cup of berries, 1/2 avocado 1/2 banana 1 Tsp cocoa powder, 1 tsp maca 1/2 cup of water, nuts, berries & cinnamon for topping.

My body is tired, and so is my head. I´m working through all my assessments for this term and everything else seems to happen at the same time. I´m getting up, already feeling tired & lacking motivation, before the day has even started, just waiting for dawn, so I can take a break. Sunday it is all over for this turn, I already know the next trimester will be even tougher, now that I´m coming closer to the end. Even when its hard I still love it. When this week is past, I will breath slowly again, feel the inside of my head relax and the best part, swim in paradise for three weeks. Until Sunday, I´m waiting for dawn, so I can rest my head again.

– Happy Sunday everyone –

Exactly in one week, Jens and I will be on a plane to Bali, we are meeting his family there, I just can´t wait to be in paradise for three weeks. We are going to a few different places, so I will give you some travel-paradise inspiration the next coming weeks. Bali is only six hours flight from Sydney, so it´s the perfect paradise spot, when living on this side of the world. Next few days Ill be dreaming away.. But first 4 more assessments to go, work and a modelling job. Let the week be over already.

We are staying in 4 different locations and here is a little sneak peak

Images belong to the four different places we are staying.

The ocean, and the mountains, my two favourite places to be, I could not live without either two. I´m not religious, but if I was, then ocean and mountains would be my true religion. It somehow presents you the answer you search, saves you from your fears and gives you back your strength and courage.

– Healthy vegan dessert –

It is the final day of our raw detox, it went surprisingly easy, after smoothie breakfast and salad lunch tomorrow I will make “normal” dinner again. Still be healthy but defiantly some pasta, cooked food and red wine will be on the meny. To celebrate the end of a great detox week, and the beginning of a new healthy week, I made my favourite healthy dessert for tomorrow, the coconut cream mousse, you have to do it. it is simply the best.

I try to stay away from dairy as much as possible, choosing coconut cream. There is so many other products that is so much better for us and for our planet than animal products, especially dairy.

I´m not a health fanatic, at least I tell myself that, I just simply believe we have so many great products out there that are healthy and delicious. So why go for the artificial and unhealthy choice, especially when there are options that is so much better for the environment and for you!?

To make the mousse, you simply need the coconut cream – put in the fridge for a few hours before using. 1/2 a teaspoon vanilla extract, 2-3 teaspoons cocoa powder (real cocoa powder without any added sugar or sweetener) and last if you are a strict vegan use agave, if not go for a organic honey. I prefer the honey flavour, as I make sure I buy real organic honey, of good quality. Cinnamon, berries or nuts of of your choice for topping.

Mentioned earlier this week, I said Jens and I was going to do a detox week, as we thought we did not have any important happenings or events to attend this week, with most of our friends out of town. I got my shopping list and week meny ready on Monday, then; we completely forgot about a friends birthday this Thursday. As he invited us out for a B-day dinner, we had to postpone our detox, starting tomorrow.

The shopping is done, meals for tomorrow is prepped and I´m ready for a fresh week, but first we will enjoy a few glasses of red tonight.

The Detox plan:

what we can eat/drink:

All vegetables and fruits – fresh uncocked

Beans, Lentils and chick peas

water and herbal teas

2 tablespoons of coconut yoghurt every day

Free range organic eggs – cooked is fine

herbs and spices (himalaya salt in moderation)

nuts and seeds unsalted


The detox plan I used for inspiration is here: http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/diet/diets/the-7-day-detox-plan/news-story/cfb1850be6010553eba661bb9cbcb938

We are making our own twist to it, swapping the yoghurt for coconut yoghurt to avoid any dairy. Second Jens is not having any meat (I dont eat meat), making it as green as possible.

– Ginger, apple cider vinegar and lemon is my “secret weapon” to a perfect start of every day –

It is Monday again, yoga is done, uni assessments are being worked on and Jens suggested we´d do a detox week. As I´m usually the big health freak in this relationship, I thought it would be a great idea, and I have not done one in to long. As we both live very healthy already, we decided to do one that is not based on juicing, but a combo of juice/smoothies – raw salads/vegetables and nuts/seeds. No alcohol during the seven days detox is probably going to be the hardest for us, as we both love red wine on a weekly basis.. We are starting on Wednesday, have a few things in the fridge we need to finish first. In the meantime I´m enjoying my lemon-ginger kick with some inspirational reading (sorry book is in Norwegian) The book is a great inspiration, it gives you positive energy, makes you appreciate every little thing and keep you working towards what you want.

Almost three weeks have gone by – I have simply not found energy or time to do my weekly exercise, always starting my Monday mornings doing yoga down by the beach. I got home after work yesterday, got onto finishing an assessment that was due, uploaded it 1155 pm and told myself ; “Tomorrow you get your lazy but out of bed early and get back on it.”

 – Feeling grateful for being able to take in all this beauty –
