supergreen summer smoothie

I decided to start the day by throwing a variety of greens and fruits into the blender to create a super-duper creamy green smoothie. It worked out so well that I needed to share the recipe. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the ingredients, you can experiment with nettle, celery, Chinese cabbage, frozen spinach… If you like your smoothies sweet, try adding some pineapple, apple or honey. Here we go (for two): a generous handful of sliced cucumber 1-2 leaves of kale handful of baby spinach juice of half grapefruit 1 kiwi (don’t use the skin) 1-2 crispy salad leaves half an avocado piece of ginger, chopped a few fresh spruce sprouts (if available) 1,5 dl oat milk (or almond/rise/soy) Throw everything into a blender, work it until smooth, pour into glasses & sprinkle with coconut flakes.

foggy morning yoga

I woke up on Monday morning to the smell of fresh coffee and my husband singing to himself in the kitchen. We were staying with my mom who had already left for work. When I entered the living room, still rubbing the sleep off my eyes, I noticed the thick fog outside and wanted to get to the lake before we’d lose the magical atmosphere. We were the only two people out on the lake. Cold and quiet. Inner warmth. Fresh air cleansing the lungs. The world, the past and the future, invisible, blurred. Just the breath and the body.

Welcome 2015

As we’re about to step over that imaginary an mystified barrier, leaving the old year behind and embracing the New, it’s a good chance to look back at 2014. What are its valuable gifts that we can take with us as we enter 2015 with our hearts open and full of hope? In 2014: What positive changes did I implement in my life? What mistakes did I do in 2014 that I can laugh at in 2015? What made me grateful? What made me happy? What did I learn from the most painful experiences? Who’s life did I touch? What made me proud? Did I set myself goals that I did not achieve? What stopped me from achieving them? Would I like to try again in 2015? How did I grow as a person?
