I prepared açai bowl, with a beetroot addition to make the colour ever more vibrant. My Favourite Green Smoothie. Green smoothies have been insanely popular this month!

My Favourite Green Smoothie

It’s really awesome to see them popping up in so many places as more and more people get excited about the power of green veggies. I’ve actually become totally addicted to them too over the past few weeks and haven’t had a day without one! I’ve tried a lot of different combinations during this time and have found this one to be the winner. It’s amazingly green thanks to the juiced cucumber and celery yet nicely sweet thanks to the banana, which means that the whole thing doesn’t taste overly veggie! Birthday Blueberries.

Birthday Blueberries

I turn 29. And since Luise and Elsa still are in Denmark I didn’t really feel like baking myself a cake. Instead I bought a big big box of fresh Swedish blueberries and made myself a blueberry coconut super smoothie. It’s quick, easy, delicious and also super nutritious (seriously, look at the ingredient list). Blueberry Coconut Super Smoothie2 glasses 1 cup fresh blueberries 1/2 cup coconut water 1 frozen banana a big chunk fresh ginger, minced juice from 1 lime 2 tbsp coconut flakes a handful of walnuts Throw all the ingredients in the blender. The Easiest Breakfast Smoothie.

I love breakfast smoothies, they’re the best way to kick start a great day!

The Easiest Breakfast Smoothie

I know lots of people think that eating healthily takes a long time but smoothies are the easiest, quickest things – it literally takes me two minutes to throw everything in the blender, blend it up and then if I’m really busy I’ll just take it on the go with me. You can even make it the night before if you want to be super speedy in the mornings – although don’t add the chia seeds or you’ll end up with a chia pudding smoothie and you’ll have to eat it with a spoon! This is a seriously delicious smoothie. The banana, oats and almond milk make it super thick and creamy, while the berries give it a beautiful colour and a sweet, fruity flavour and the spinach gives you a good dose of revitalising greens so that you’ll be glowing from the inside out all day!

Serves 1 - 1 banana - 1 big handful of spinach - 1/2 a cup of almond milk - 3 tablespoons of oats - 1 tablespoon of hemp powder - 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. Blackberry Almond Butter Maca Smoothie Bowl. There’s a special quality to the air in the early morning in Charlottesville.

Each inhalation of the raw outdoors is imbued with freshness, newness. Like cooling sips of glimmering, refreshing spring water. Blueberry Basil Smoothie + Soy-free Protein Smoothie Boosts. It’s never officially summer until I arrive in Canada.

Blueberry Basil Smoothie + Soy-free Protein Smoothie Boosts

Before the first embrace at the airport from my parents, before long nights in front of a bonfire, before the St. Lawrence River swallows me whole, I cannot truly feel like it’s time to slow down and embrace the season. What’s all the Buzz About? Bee Pollen. Oh for the love of bees!

What’s all the Buzz About? Bee Pollen.

Are you as obsessed as I am? Probably not, but I am a little special that way. My passion for bees knows no limits, as the amazing things they produce are infinitely mind-blowing! GREEN REHYDRATION SMOOTHIE. I consider myself to have rhythm.


Maybe not a ton, but enough. Pear and Spinach Smoothie - Back to Her Roots. Have I told you guys that I’m off the juice?

Pear and Spinach Smoothie - Back to Her Roots

And by “the juice” I mean—dun, dun, dun—added sugar. My husband and I somewhat randomly decided one day a few weeks back that we were sick of being so totally obsessed with sugar. I truly believe that sweets can be a part of any healthy diet in moderation, but thanks to a quite decadent holiday season (ahem, I’m looking at you Christmas cookies), my body had become so addicted to sugar that I literally couldn’t sleep at night because I was fantasizing about eating cookies. I kid you not. That is not healthy. Acai bowl of goodness. April 03, 2016 I woke up in a morning after sleeping 16h straight and I’ve realised that I missed Australia.

We’re back, after an amazing month in my most favourite country all over the word. This trip was very special for me. The first reason was an amazing workshop I had a pleasure to organise together with Luisa Brimble, Local is Lovely and Simone, about which I’ll write in another post. The second reason - I’ve been traveling with Mia, just us girls, no papa around. Super Cacao & Banana Shake + Cacao Health Benefits. A chocolate shake that’s good for you? Yes, please! This cacao banana shake is packed full of antioxidants and is so quick and easy to make. Simply place all the ingredients into a blender, blend on high, and voila! Emergency morning green bowl breakfast - Mia... March 15, 2017 Life is changing.

You think that getting pregnant is the beginning of the most amazing adventure in your life. Then you get what it means to be pregnant and you wait for the moment when you see your child for the very first time. Then you wait for the first month to pass so your life will go back to normal and then you understand that it never will and what is happening is actually the adventure you were imagining at the beginning. But the adventure is slightly different than your original vision. Yep, my kid is awesome. A part of catching up is trying to feed them well, in a way they will accept. Pretty pink for a breakfast. August 19, 2016. Avocado Blueberry Mango Super Smoothie Recipe. It was a wet, warm Christmas morning. Inside, the tree sparkled with colorful glass ornaments, string lights and silver jingle bells. Outside, puddles in the street reflected gray cloud cover. We opened our windows to let a humid cross breeze enliven the living room.

Logan and I slept on an air mattress alongside the presents (the only sleeping space left in the packed house). At 7am my 3 year old nephew couldn’t be held back any longer. And, you know what? Alas, Christmas fantasies have been laid to rest. This is my current go-to post and pre-yoga smoothie. All in all, this mood boosting avocado blueberry mango super smoothie is perfect for the grey doldrums of winter. Note: No butterflies were harmed in the making of this photoshoot.
