Fresh juice every morning

I haven’t been this tired in a long time and I should probably be in bed getting some rest. But I just couldn’t end today without telling you about Witt’s slow juicer. 

I recently received a slow juicer which I tried out this morning with the little fruit we had left laying around. Two oranges and one kiwi made an awesome fresh juice. It’s a big machine but you can make amazing fresh juices, smoothies or even baby food. You get all your vitamins and maximum nutrition from you ingredients, and instead of blending or centrifugation the juicer cold presses the fruit and vegetables.

Now I just have to go out and buy more fruit and veggies, cause I definitely want to use this more.

Sweet pancakes

I haven’t had that many cravings during my pregnancy other then the occasional chocolate, ice cream and carrot.. yes, lots of carrots lately. But thats not what I wanted to share. My new favorite food is actually banana pancakes.

I don’t know who came up with this cleaver and easy meal but I first tasted it after  Blogilates shared the recipe. I did struggle with flipping the pancake and getting it done on both side but after some tries and fails I finally found out what works the best. The best part is that you only need two ingredients, amazing right! It’s super healthy and they’re already sweet so you don’t necessarily need any toppings. So here’s how you do it.


♥ 2 eggs ♥ 1 banana ♥ Olive oil

1. Mix two eggs and the banana with a fork or in a mixer.
2. Use a frying pan on low heat, add your cooking oil and pour the batter with a spoon to make small pancakes.
3. Wait a couple of minutes, the first side usually needs long then the second one. And once it’s easy to remove you flip the pancake over.

Perfect for a mid-day snack or maybe even breakfast with your favorite smoothie.

Enjoy!

Home sweet home

Home at last. I’ve been up since 7 a.m because we were going to leave the house an hour later. One hour become two, and eventually we were on our way to Sweden. Today we planned on buying food for almost the entire family. Which ment a lot of halal meat, capri-sun and as we speak a full fridge. After about five hours we arrived home and I’m finally sitting down on the couch and taking a breather.

Tomorrow is a new week and a chance to start over again. Also a new YouTube video! Hopefully I’l be able to pre-film something as well.

Have a great Sunday!

I want to share another recipe with you, a super simple and quick smoothie. There is no excuse now for not eating fruit and greens.

You will need:

♥ 1 handfull of spinach
♥ 1 banana
♥ 1 handfull of green grapes
♥ 300 ml Kefir / Natural yogurt
♥ 1 tbls lemon juice
♥ Ice cubs

1. Mix the ice cubs first so that they get crushed.
2. Part the banana and slice the grapes into two
3. Mix everything together including the spinach and lemon juice with kefir or yogurt

green smoothie

This smoothie turned out creamy and tasted beyond my expectations. Absolutely worth trying, and you won’t even taste the spinach.
