So my everyday dilemma: What to cook for dinner!
Holy Moly, I just found my sunday saviour. As I am trying to eat less fats and sugar because of my “hypertriglyceride-something” this recipe is just perfect… and vegan! I found the recipe over here!
1 ripe banana
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
7 slices of sourdough bread, cut in half to make 14 slices (I used a round loaf)
The nutritional info below is for one slice.
I love having myself a little treat after working hard or just enjoying something sweet with my tea or coffee. It’s just a Swedish tradition to have some fika* at least once a day.
Bananas + oats + walnuts**
Mash 2 large overripe bananas in a bowl. Add 1 cup rolled oats and ¼ cup chopped walnuts**. Drop rounded tablespoons of batter onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 350°. Makes 12 cookies.
*A Swedish word, pronounced feekah. It is when you eat e.g. a sweet cake, cookie or even regular sandwich, normally with some kind of beverage. Preferably coffee or tea, but any form of soda is commonly accepted! This phenomenon is mostly popular amongst teenagers, but there’s no doubt whatsoever that older OR younger people than teenagers can “fika”. And there is nothing that hinders you from “fikaing” at home, with your home-made cookies or coffee! It’s just that it’s more common that younger people use the word “Fika”, when they practice this in local coffee-shops and such. It’s a way of getting together with friends, workmates, a date, etc, chatting in a relaxed kind of way. Another definition is simply just having coffee or tea, but this does not complete the picture of what “fika” can be.
**or chocolate chips like this :)

I love cake, there I said it, after seeing my doctor today and getting my results it shows that I have a sweet tooth. So knowing that my body feels like crap after me indulging al kind of pastries and chocolate it is time for me to find healthy alternatives and I just felt that I had to share this recipe with you guys.
**This cake is best when eaten right after it’s prepared. If you don’t plan on serving immediately, place in the freezer for up to an hour to maintain sturdiness.

Last year my mom, sister and I made this cake for my older sister who’s studying to become a nutritionist, she absolutely loved it. (Personally I think that our “cake” turned out much prettier, it’s lovely that you can garnish it with your favorite fruits… enjoy)
“This is a live record of two people getting to know each other from across the country – Cora Gable in New York City and Patrick Callahan in Los Angeles.
After multiple attempts at an introduction from their mutual friend, Alison Pill, they finally consented.
On January 1st, 2014 (7pst/10est), they made each other’s acquaintance over video chat, and made resolutions to talk at the same time each night, for the rest of the month.”
Such a funny, well written and sweet mini serie for you to watch, each episode (skype conversation) is about 4 minutes long. They (Cora and Patrick) are so funny and cute and I just love their sense of humor. Getting those be-my-friend-vibes going on!

Some weeks ago my friend took me to a restaurant where they make the best hummus in Stockholm, it is located at Ringvägen 145 in Stockholm. If you visit this beautiful city of ours then you must go there :). Since then I have been thinking of hummus, falafel and all other great stuff you can do with beans.
Then I’ve also spent nights on pinterest just looking at food, drawling all over myself after finding these recipes. What I really like about them is that there is no deep frying needed.. Hot oil scares the crap out of me.
