Family dinner.


I had my family over for dinner last Monday, and I decided to make baked salmon with honey, ginger and garlic spices. Unfortunately, I have no pictures of the salmon, because we were so hungry, that I forgot to bring out the camera. It was delicious! Salmon is my favorite fish, and I can’t believe I didn’t like it once. Actually, I didn’t like any seafood at all, but well, luckily that changed.

For the main dish, I also made two rucola pesto and mozzarella bread, and a salad. It was hard to make the bread as I realized, I didn’t have a rolling pen halfway through the making, which is also the reason the dough is a too thick and messes up the braided look a little bit. Most importantly, my family told me the bread tasted well. I am still on my healthy competition diet, so no bread (or dessert) for me this time.

We had strawberries, grapes, small Nutella bread, and Malaysian fried banana cake for dessert.






Healthy nuts every day.


I love nuts. They are an easy healthy snack, and nuts covered with chocolate are just too delicious. For obvious reasons, I am not allowed to eat the ones with chocolate at the moment, but I eat raw nuts on top of my oatmeal every morning and as an evening snack. I like to have a whole collection of different nuts in my kitchen, so I have some different variants to choose from. This is my top five favourite nuts, but I must say it is extremely hard to decide which I like better than the other.

1. Macadamia nuts. Macadamia nuts are the best! They are very expensive though, which is the reason why I am not really buying them that often. They are for special occasions.

2. Pecans. I have been eating these for the past couple of days, and I am not getting tired of them at all. I definitely need to buy more.

3. Pine nuts. These are especially good when they are roasted on the pan. Perfect for topping or in a salad.

4. Brazil nuts. These nuts are huge, but easy to chop into smaller pieces more appropriate for topping.

5. Cashews. These nuts have a kind of buttery taste, which is why I like them better roasted, as it gives them a soft crunch instead.

I use almonds quite often because they are cheaper than many of the nuts listed above.

These are my top five favourite nuts, but there are lots of other nuts to choose from if you don’t share the same taste as me, for example hazelnuts, peanuts, chestnuts, pistachios, and walnuts.


Morning oats with almonds and blueberries.


Skyr (Icelandic dairy product, similar to strained yogurt) with brazil nuts and blueberries.


Indian food 1

When you have been following a strict diet plan for four weeks without any cheat meals you start to crave something else than what’s on your plan. So far, I haven’t found it very difficult to follow a diet plan because it has become a habit to eat healthy and weight all my food. BUT I am craving Indian food. Seriously Indian food!? I didn’t eat a lot of it before, except when I was on exchange in Vietnam last year, but now I want to eat it every day haha. I have self-discipline enough to keep it to looking at delicious Pinterest photos and scrolling through the recipes, but still, it’s strange. I would have imagined the craving for nutella, cake and candy would come first.


Hello mornings spent in bed, long time no see! A morning without the sound of an alarm had been needed for some time now, and I was surprised I didn’t sleep longer than until 9 am. I enjoyed my morning oats with some sparkling water before I went to the gym. I was full of new energy and today’s workout was amazing.



Most of today I spent at work. I was eating lunch at 11 am already, so I was starving when I got home at around 4.30 pm. Luckily, I did grocery shopping yesterday and my fridge was full of food. I made a delicous wholegrain wrap with vegetables and spicy minced meat. At the same time I food prepped some salmon, vegetables and wraps for tomorrows lunch, which I am already looking forward to eat. Actually, I am looking forward to eat all the time at the moment. I am really enjoying my food so it better be something delicious haha.


Today is strength training restday, but I went on a 30 minutes run. Now it’s shower time, and then I am going to the outdoor summer cinema to watch a movie with my friends.

Have a nice evening out there.


I first heard about proats, which is protein oats, from my fitness teammate. She had this for breakfast, and this morning I felt like trying it myself.

Right now, I am in a good rhythm where I get up, eat my cooked oatmeal and drink a cup of coffee. There is no better way to start the day, and my day starts like this everyday.

This morning, I chose to mix my double choco protein powder with my oats and water. It was seriously good, giving the oats some chocolate taste. Topped with almonds and blueberries.



Mexican lunch.

MEXICAN TORTILLAS with meat, salad, tomatoes, avocado, and cucumber. Aaaand hot salsa of course. This is my favourite food! The pills are Omega 3 supplements. All this together with a banana and a proten shake is a perfect post workout/pre work lunch. Now I will be completely full until dinner time.





This it the first time for me trying buckwheat. I haven’t head of it before, but I ot it from a friend, who got it from Poland. I did some research and it sounds really healthy. I don’t think it is popular in Denmark (yet) since I haven’t tasted or seen it before. Do you eat it where you are from?

I don’t really like the taste nor the smell of it. Its ok but I prefer rice or couscous/bulgur. I am happy I got to taste buckwheat. Next I want to try Quinoa which should be very healthy too.
