Matcha Smoothie – en lækker og sund morgenmad

0

Denne matcha smoothie er en skøn og sund morgenmad på en lun sommermorgen. Den er fyldt med antioxidanter, som er med til at holde din hud sund.

Måske du så småt er ved at finde ud af, at jeg virkelig godt kan lide matcha te. Hvis du følger mig på Snapchat (heidikokborg), er du i hvert fald ikke i tvivl.

hummus

Hummus med soltørrede tomater

0

Hummus er let at tilberede, lækkert og sundt. Denne variant med soltørrede tomater er velegnet til salater, wraps og ovenpå et stykke groft brød.

Jeg elsker virkelig hummus. Hvadenten det er i en salat, tapas, istedet for dip til grøntsagsstave eller bare bare direkte fra skålen med en ske.

Vanilla Matcha green tea latte

0

Hvis du ikke allerede har smagt Matcha te, så bliver du nødt til det. Det smager fantastisk, og det er en lille sundhedsbombe. 

Hvis du følger mig på Snapchat (mit brugernavn er heidikokborg), så har du nok fundet ud af, at jeg er ret glad for matcha lattes. Som i virkelig glad. Som i afhængig. Det er faktisk blevet lidt af en besættelse.

Green juice

Good-for-your-skin green juice – sund juice på ingen tid

0

Denne grønne juice er fuld af vitaminer, og den er fantastisk for din hud. Du kan ikke undgå at føle dig fuld af energi og sund, når du har drukket den. 

Hvis du ikke har smagt en grøn juice, så er det på tide. Indrømmet, så tog det mig en hel del tid, før jeg endelig turde smage en grøn juice. Men de er faktisk slet ikke så farlige, som de lyder (eller ser ud). Faktisk er de virkelig gode. Og så er de sindssygt sunde! Så da jeg lånte mine forældres juicer forleden, blev jeg selvfølgelig nødt til at juice min egen grønne juice. Og det var en succes. Så stor en succes, jeg selvfølgelig måtte dele den med jer.

Exotic green smoothie – sund smoothie på minutter

0

Denne eksotiske smoothie er sund og virkelig lækker. Hvad enten du drikker den til morgenmad, snack eller til dessert på en lun sommeraften.

Jeg elsker smoothies. I alle afskygninger! Men i særdeleshed elsker jeg green smoothies – aka Green monsters. Det er efterhånden mange år siden, jeg smagte min første grønne smoothie – og det tog altså lidt tilløb (læs: et par måneders tilløb). Men da jeg endelig tog mig sammen og lavede en green monster, var jeg solgt. De smager skønt, og så er farven faktisk også ret pæn (når man lige er kommet sig over, den er grøn).

Tropisk smoothie – en sund og vegansk smoothie

0

Denne tropiske smoothie er perfekt på en varm sommermorgen. Den er sund, lækker og får dig til at tænke på bounty strande.

I har nok efterhånden fundet ud at, jeg er lidt af en smoothie-fanatiker. Så snart kalenderen siger forår og sommer, står den på smoothie og overnight oats til morgenmad langt de fleste dage. Jeg elsker simpelthen kolde ting om morgenen, når det er varmt udenfor. Og her er smoothies altså ret gode. Og så gør det jo heller ikke noget, at smoothies er supersunde. Det er altid et plus (dermed ikke sagt, at usunde ting ikke er i orden. Det er de altid!).

Negative self-talk

Stop negative self-talk

0

Hi gorgeous!

I have spent many years hating my body and treating it horrible. Ever since I developed an eating disorder as a 12-year-old I have been talking negative about my body and myself. All through my teen years my body disgusted me. Some of the things I would say about myself were:

  • You are fat
  • You are ugly
  • You aren’t worth anything
  • You thighs are too big
  • Your stomach is to big
  • You look horrible in photos
  • Your arms are huge
  • You are weak because you can’t lose weight
  • Your skin is ugly
  • …….

The list was endless. I don’t remember ever saying a single positive or nice thing about or to myself. I was my own worst enemy.

It wasn’t until the age of 21 I finally realized I needed recovery. A few months into my recovery I decided I wanted to end all negative self-talk. I had spent the past nine years hating my body and working against it instead of with it. I was fed up. If I didn’t stop my negative self-talk I would never fully recover. So I decided it was time to put an end to it.

This summer it is a year ago I finally came to the decision to end all negative self-talk, and I don’t doubt for a single second that I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t come to that decision. Now, I am not saying this decision has been easy to practice during the past year. It has been hard. And I haven’t been talking positive about myself all the time. I spent nine years talking negative about myself – of course it’s not going to change overnight. It takes time.

However, I try my very best to not talk negative about myself – neither to others nor to myself. I focus on all the things I love about myself. I focus on all the things my body does for me. I have a beaten heart, strong legs that take me places, a beautiful stomach that my boyfriend loves…. My body is a wonder. And so is yours. Think of all the things your body does for you. How can we even talk negative about our bodies? I owe my body everything – somehow, my heart kept beating through the nine years I suffered from an eating disorder. That is a miracle and it just wouldn’t be fair to either my body or myself if I kept talking negative about myself.

So today I encouraged you to stop all negative self-talk. It is toxic and it doesn’t do anything good for you. If anything it sucks the life out of you (at least it did for me). So the next time you say something negative about yourself stop for a minute and say something positive about yourself. And encourage others to do the same. Negative self-talk does absolutely nothing good or useful for any of us. So start talking positive about yourself because you are amazing, beautiful, smart, important, unique, and so many other positive things.

My life has become so much better since I decided to put an end to negative self-talk. I am much more confident, happy, and proud. My body is in no way perfect but I love it the way it is and I wouldn’t want to change it. I am happy and confident in my own skin – something I haven’t been half my life – and it feels absolutely amazing.

What are your thoughts on this subject? Do you agree with me or do you have a completely different opinion? I would love to hear what you guys think!

Love,

Heidi

Italian Summer Pasta

0

Hi girls!

I hope your weekend is going well so far. Mine is going great. I worked a couple of hours this morning, & now I am sitting in the garden with Jeppe: blogging my little heart out. The weather has been SO nice these last couple of days. The sun has been shining & I have been able to wear cute dresses. & eating ice cream & drinking iced coffees. Life is good!

The recipe I am sharing with you today is perfect for all the hot summer nights to come. I don’t know about you but I love fresh pasta with LOTS of veggies during the summer. It kind of makes me feel like I am in Italy. Okay, I have never actually been to Italy but I am guessing I would eat a ton of pasta & drink white wine.

I used fresh pasta for the recipe simply because I like fresh pasta so much better & it’s more authentic. But feel free to use any kind of pasta you like. The recipe doesn’t require many ingredients but that’s exactly how I like it: simple yet delicious. Plus, if you use fresh ingredients you really don’t need that many to make the food taste like a piece of heaven.

I recommend enjoying the recipe with a glass of white wine. It really takes the recipe to the next level (also wine makes everything better, right?).

Vegan Overnight Oats with peanut butter & apricots

Hi beauties! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Jeppe and I had a great one. Saturday I worked for a couple of hours. I sometimes work on weekends in the most adorable & unique little boutique. After work Jeppe picked me up & we went to a cute cafe for lunch. The cafe was decorated like something from the 70’s. We actually felt like we were taken back in time. No need to say we had a great time. & the coffee was amazing! If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the coffee I posted. After lunch we drove outside the city & went on a beautiful walk.

Sunday was pretty relaxing. I went to a vinyasa class in the morning & in the afternoon we went for a walk in the sunshine. It was perfect. 

Okay, enough said about my weekend. You probably came for the recipe, right? 😉 Well, let’s talk about it!

Vegan overnight oats are probably one of my favourite breakfasts. Especially during summer. I love the idea of waking up in the morning & knowing that a delicious bowl of breakfast is waiting for me in the fridge. Plus, I love eating cool things like smoothies or vegan overnight oats for breakfast during summer. Something to cool me down.

If you are a busy bee in the morning you will fall in love with overnight oats. You just have to spent 5 minutes the night before, & voila! In the morning you have a creamy, filling, & scumptious breakfast that’s just waiting for you to dive in.
