Caesar Salad with Homemade Dressing and Crispy Chickpeas

DSC_0066Quite often I like a light salad for dinner and caesar salad is simple, yet so good. I always make the dressing myself – it is really easy to make and much better than the one you buy at your grocery store. Instead of adding croutons I chose a slightly more “low carb” version by making crispy chickpeas – and make sure to make a big portion – you might get addicted!

Energy Boosting Orange Smoothie

Food_14I love almost everything about autumn! I love the colors, I love the cold weather, I love the food that comes with it, and I love to sit inside with a hot cup of coffee. But one thing I do not love is the cold that often comes with this season. Every year I buy a special “cold-kit” to try and avoid getting sick. Among other things this involves lots of ginger and lots of lemon. Continue reading

Indian Chicken Curry with Cauliflower and Quinoa Rice

Food_03

When I was little my mom used to make this Danish meal called “Ristaffel”. Hence the name “ris” (rice in English) it was rice with a chicken curry sauce, and on top you sprinkled with bananas, pineapples, raisins, coconut, and peanuts. This recipe is made with inspiration from this nostalgic “Ristaffel”, however I wanted to make a slightly different version.

Wild Berry Pie with a Grain Free Crust

Food_07

Even though it is no longer summer, some of the past weeks has felt a little like it. And all this sun made me wanna make one last pie with the rest of the lovely berries from my moms garden. I added all the berries I could find; strawberries, raspberries, red currants, blueberries and blackberries – there are no rules, so pick your favorites. And if you don’t have a growing garden right next to you, I will tell a little secret….Frozen berries will also do! Continue reading

Fulfilling Blueberry Smoothie with Raw Egg

Food_02

It is time to share a new, delicious, and very fulfilling smoothie that can keep you going for hours. The thing about this smoothie is that it is not just a mixture of berries, fruit or whatever you usually put in your blender. This time I added an egg, yes a raw, organic one. I know it may seem kind of crazy and not that appealing for some of you, but I’m telling you – it is good! Not only do you get a creamy texture, you also get a smoothie that is loaded with proteins and far more fulfilling than a pure fruit smoothie. Also I added almonds and avocado to get some healthy fat and banana and blueberries to provide vitamins and minerals for your body. All in all it’s one big glass filled with noting but good ingredients! Enjoy it for breakfast, as a post-workout treat, or whenever it suits you!  Continue reading

Egg Wrap with Chicken and Avocado Cream

DSC_0020At this moment I am testing a lot of grain free and low carb recipes, simply out of interest. This egg wrap is without any flour or milk, and made simply from eggs, seasoned with a little salt and pepper. You can add the topping you prefer or whatever’s in your fridge. I chose chicken and avocado since they go really good together, and added cabbage, crispy apples and crunchy almonds. The wrap is really high in protein and unsaturated fats, which makes it healthy and fulfilling. And if you make more than you can eat, it is perfect for lunch the next day! Continue reading
