LIFE IS GREAT

Who doesn’t need a little reminder of that every now and then? I mean, we all need to appreciate life more than we do. I’m so greatful for my boyfriend and my family and I try to tell them how great they are as often as I can. I am also very happy to be able towork as a volunteer on a ”farm” not far from where we live. I really love animals and it’s really amazing to spend time with the cutest piglets ever, the high-hatted goat, the lovely sheep and the cosy cats. I brought my camera yesterday to take some photos of my new friends.

ROOT VEGETABLE STEW (EATING HEALTHY ON A BUDGET)

Ny mapp

One of the best things with autumn is that you can get your hands on very cheap (and very healthy) root vegetables. This week I’ve filled our pantry with carrots, potatoes and onions. Another great thing is that you can store these vegetables for such a long time. As you might have seen on Instagram I made some sort of root vegetable stew yesterday. In Sweden we have what is called Swedish hash (pyttipanna), which is basically a mix of leftovers. Mostly it’s made of potatoes, onion and some sort of meat and is traditionally served with fried eggs and pickled beetroots. 

I made a healthier version of this traditional dish, using olive oil instead of butter and chickpeas instead of meat. It’s perfect for all of you who are trying to eat healthy on a budget. I am a student myself so I love it when I come up with new, cheap, yet healthy, meals. I’ve made a photo recipe for you so that you easily can see how to to this.

This is what you need (2 servings), if you can afford it – buy organic. 

250 g chickpeas
1 tbsp olive oil 
1 tomato
1 yellow onion
1 red onion
8 potatoes (or about 450 g)
2 big carrots 

Before we start – preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Now, cut the vegetables into smaller pieces like the picture above. Put the potatoes and carrots on a baking sheet and drizzle some olive oil over them. Stir until all potatoes and carrots are more or less covered in oil.

Then it’s time to add the other vegetables onto the baking sheet. Then bake for about 30-40 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside and roast the chickpeas in the oven for about 15 minutes. Mix the chickpeas with the vegetables and top with a few almonds if you like.

Serve with some cottage cheese, a fried egg and a simple sauce made of pureed tomatoes, onion and soy yoghurt. 

If you want to, you can make an even bigger batch of this and save the leftovers for lunch the very next day. I did and just mixed it with some organic, canned tomatoes and finely chopped jalapeno. Easy, cheap and healthy.

SNACK ATTACK

unnamed

Tänkte tipsa om en riktig favorit som jag gärna äter efter ett svettigt träningspass. Chokladpudding gjord på proteinpulver vet ni alldeles säkert att jag gillar. Precis som med gröt kan man variera toppingsen i oändlighet. Idag körde jag på kokoschips från Urtekram och honungsrostade cashewnötter från Nu3. Så himla god kombo! 

Har även bra nyheter till er som behöver fylla på med proteinpulver och annat – skriv upp er på nyhetsbrevet från Tillskottsbolaget så får ni 10 % rabatt. Ni hittar hemsidan HÄR

Tog en lite kortare runda idag. Det var ganska mycket kallare ute jämfört med tidigare så jag kände av min astma mer än vanligt. Det gäller att lyssna på kroppen och ta det lugnt när man känner att kroppen inte riktigt orkar med. 

Ha en fin onsdag på er!

YESTERDAY

Yesterday I made falafels for dinner (you find the recipe under ‘recept’). I served it with cashew sauce (also to be found under recept) and canned tomatoes mixed with one finely chopped jalapeno. For my love I also made an egg sandwich with red onion. We also hade a lot of vegetables on the side. Here are some photos;
