I LOVELOVELOVE avocados! And since I’ve changed my diet I’ve been keen on experimenting even more with avocados for savoury as well as for sweet dishes. I’ve never thought of avocados to be such an amazing ingredient for sweet dishes as well. But out there on Instagram, there’s endless inspiration to find on what to cook and how to use avocados in ways I would have never imagined.
But let’s stick to a savoury way of using them for now – as a heavenly creamy, fresh and so quick to make pesto. My version with sweetpotato spaghetti is a gluten free one, but it tastes equally amazing with any type of pasta or e.g. mixed with a risotto and some stir-fried mushrooms – yumm!

I finally managed to walk around quite a bit at home this morning. After suffering from major back pain for the last couple of days, I was so thankful I started to feel much better when I woke up today. And although it might sound like no big thing, being able to blend this green smoothie on my own and without feeling significant pain, meant a lot to me and made me feel myself again.
I should definitively do all this blending-of-goodness-together-thing more often as soon as I’m fully recovered, cause it was delicious, satisfying and very energizing in many ways!

This is exactly where I saw this classic Freestyle Hi Spirit model from Reebok the last time! It’s more than 25 years ago, but I could never forget El Show The Yuly, where the pretty southamerican TV presenter Yuly was jumping, singing and running around in her show, wearing those classics – another colour every show! My sisters and me were so in love with her (our wanna-be-when-I-grow-up-icon), and not to mention her rainbow coloured palette of Rebook classics – we were crazyyy about them (ahhh, I love the 80s).

The moment when pain just magically eases because your friends send you a basket full of goodness and a lovingly written note, just to make sure you know that they think and care about you and want to make you feel better ♥! I’m so grateful.
If you want or need to start something new which seems to be very difficult in the first place – in my case having to change my diet due to health problems and therefore cut out gluten and refined sugar as well as having dairy products only now and then – I think it’s crucial to find something that inspires and motivates you to keep you on track. I didn’t wanted to feel kind of punished or condemned to this diet changes I had to make. I wanted it to be thoroughly positive, because the conclusion to all of this should be to actually make me feel better within my skin and help my immune system to perform as well as possible again and as it’s supposed to.
So where to get some inspiration from, to conquer this new lifestyle I needed to face and ideally turn into an effortless, joyful and lifelong way of nourishing myself?

is waiting for money, and
somebody is waiting for power, and
somebody is waiting for enlightenment, and somebody for something else.
but everybody seems to be waiting.
and people who wait are people who miss.
I always miss the sea. And when I came across this beautiful, dreamy picture CEREAL magazine had posted on their instagram account, I immediately felt a comfortable warmth spreading throughout my belly, and my thoughts wandered back to the last time I had been to the sea.
Mmmmh (sign that it’s just too long ago) … yes! Copenhagen baby.
I’ve always loved every kind of bananas, in smoothies, fried as a side with eggs, a steak, some rice, avocados and tomatoes, frozen and then mixed to heavenly soft ice cream, in cakes and muffins or just eaten right away and “unprocessed”. Since I’m eating gluten free, I’ve been keen on creating delicious sweet treats that fit into my new diet, and of course some of them had to include my beloved bananas! So creating a yummi banana bread that could work either as a nutrient-rich breakfast or snack during the day, was the next absolutely logical step for me.
