Put it all together in your blender, if you don´t want the bits of almonds and dates that does not blend just strain the bits out.

Hi sweethearts, hope you are all having a wonderful day.

The magazine I blog for; Femelle.no is running a competition, announcing “This Years Femelle Blogger 2016”. It would be amazing if you took your time to give me, Ginger Gypsy a vote HERE, if you think I deserve it. I´ve been a Femelle blogger for 4-5 months now, so there are many other bloggers that has been a part of the network much longer, that also deserve to win. Still worth a shot, as I´m super happy to be apart of the network and will continue to be.

If you give me a vote I will be really grateful

Thank you beautiful x

Happy Sunday everyone, I just finished another weekend of work, game night, good wine and a quick healthy sustainable burger dinner last night. Jens and I were both in the mood of not having to cook, as usually I love cooking I needed a day off after a busy and very productive week.

I love the fact that people are becoming more aware of the massive food issue we are facing, and are really making changes to their lives, restaurants and cafes are approaching a more sustainable food way. In Sydney plant based food options are really great, making it so much easier to not eat meat.

My favourite burger placed is called Soul Burger and it is all plant based delicious burgers, even hard core burger lovers will approve of these burgers.

Enjoy your Sunday lovelies

It´s the time of year that these beautiful tree´s are flowering deep purple flowers around Sydney.

It means Summer is upon us, more light in the evenings and good energies in the air and it does make you feel great. Seeing the nature flower reminds me of how fragile it is, being constantly abused by humans. Take a step back look around you, stop abusing, start appreciating and slow down your lifestyle.

Before we can change our current life patterns,

pb021150

The soul tests us to see if we have learned from them.

pb021151

If we can recognise the underlying needs that allowed that pattern to repeat,

pb021156

Then we can transition into the next phase of our life.

First day of November and it feels like Summer arrived with it. Looking back at October sharing my favourite happenings this month. It has mostly been uni assessments and work on the agenda.

I love asian inspired cooking, especially the combination of ginger chilli and soy sauce. This week I made this healthy asian style salad, which is great for dinner or for lunch.

I made it really simple and green this time around, as I mix it up after what I got in my fridge and what I feel like.

Using soba noodles, kale and avocado gives your body plenty of nutrition.

Healthy, Sustainable & Delicious

Can I justify it? I´m not sure. But I decide to let go and live in the moment I´m in right now, not hold on to worries or mistakes of the past.

One thing that I´ve been feeling awful about is my previous purchases of new leather goods. I do not buy any leather goods new anymore, secondhand though, I do. I do still use my leather goods that I did not buy secondhand, simple because what is done is done, I rather live in this current moment, and look forward.

I can criticise myself as much as I like, make myself feel bad for decisions I have made, but it will not change the past anyway.

The beauty of life is that we will always make mistakes and you got to choose if you will learn from them or not. I choose to learn from the things that I see as mistakes in my life. We all have our own demons to deal with, yours different than mine. Hopefully you can manage to let go of the worries of the past and live in the moment.

Lets Live In The Moment

Naked foods is a great concept here in Sydney. It is a grocery where you buy bulk, so you pick the amount that you need. There is no plastic bags, only paper bags or glass jars. Both recyclable and reusable. It is also mostly organic and healthy foods.

pa141096

Most people probably dont even realise how much plastic they buy and throw away in their everyday life. “We” put everything in plastic, or it is already packed in plastic for us from the store. Reducing our use of plastic is not even a very difficult thing, it is simply making small changes to our everyday lifestyle.

pa141094 pa141093 pa141095

In my lifestyle, it is those simple things like choosing a  Naked Food Store for certain products that I use a lot, therefore bringing the paper bags back when I need a refill of something.

Chose to do your weekly shopping all in one day, this way you make sure you bring reusable shopping bags, and your own old plastic bags for certain things you “have to” put in plastic. This way you keep better track of what you spend and you can be more sustainable.

The best part they have all super delicious healthy treats, so you can eat as much as you like

Who does not love eating? I mean food is just one amazing thing we need to function. Making food that is sustainable, healthy and delicious makes it even more exiting! My ongoing healthy – sustainable – yummy – food mania will hopefully never end. Sharing it with other likeminded and  inspire you to try something different is just an great added bonus to my obsession.

This week I made couscous fritters, which is something I make every know and then, always adding or changing a few of the ingredients. I like changing it around so it does stay interesting to make over again.

pa201122

Couscous is fast to make, cheap to buy and it is healthy to eat, which makes it a must in my sustainable food life. The fritters are a great for dinner, lunch or even as a side dish for your breakfast.

 pa201121Main ingredients to make fritters:

spices after your liking – oats – flour after your liking – chilli – garlic – couscous – sun dried tomato – olive oil

pa201125

I added shredded carrot to make the fritters more flavourful.

pa201127

Mix all ingredients – make sure you cook the couscous first. When mixed together,  leave them in the fridge for 30 min – make the fritters the size you prefer.

pa201129 pa201133

I pan fry / cook them with olive oil for about 20 min. This gives them a crispy outside and I like the flavour of olive oil.

pa211134 I had them for dinner – lunch & breakfast this week. SOOO YUMMY!

Hi Lovelies!

We have had some really nice days the last week, unfortunately I´ve had a pretty full schedule with uni and work, almost half way through this trimester, which is crazy. Time is flying, and there is still much that needs to be done. With that said, I can not complain, I´m enjoying every busy step of the way, especially now, being so close to the end of my bachelor.
