Breakfast of champions.

Happy Sunday everyone.

It’s cold here in Norway, so when I have time in the morning (which I have most days), I love having a warm and tasty breakfast. Personally I’m a huge fan of oatmeal. The reason I love having it is because it fills me up for hours, I’m able to train really hard and not feel empty at all, and it tastes amazing!!

So I thought it was only right that my first recipe post would be an oatmeal one. And also, not only one, but my two favorite oatmeal recipes!

If you are trying the «new year, new me» thing that we all pretend is gonna change our lives every year, than these recipes are perfect!

The base of all my oatmeals goes like this..

  1. 1dl water
  2. 1dl unsweetned almond milk
  3. 1dl oats
  4. 2Tbls chia seeds.

And then depending on the day I add different things into it. The first one I’m gonna share with you is the «carrot cake oatmeal». This one is inspired by Niomi Smart who’s a huge inspiration to me. I’ve changed up her recipe to how I like it.

So we begin with the base. Then we add..

  1. 1tsp cinnamon
  2. 1tsp nutmeg
  3. 1tsp ginger powder
  4. 2Tblsp sweetner of choice.. (I like maple syrup or honey)
  5. Raisins.
  6. 1 grated carrot.

Add all of that with the base and let it cook until its warm..

Then I top it with whatever I’m feeling that specific day, but I love having some almonds or walnuts, flax seeds, coconut flakes, blueberries and bananas…

Just to let you know.. Having a carrot in your oatmeal tastes soooo much better and it sounds, and it’s also super good for you!

The second oatmeal recipe is something I came up with myself. I love apple and cinnamon – anything, so I decided to make an «apple pie oatmeal».

Let’s Just begin with the same base, and add in:

  1. 1 tsp cinnamon
  2. 1 tsp ginger powder
  3. 1/2 an apple, garted
  4. 1/2 apple, cut into pieces
  5. 1 banana
  6. A bunch of rasisns
  7. Sweetner of choice (honey or maple syrup)

Then again, I mix all that with the base and let it cook, just like last time.

And top it with whatever you’d like.

And WALLAH, there you have the my two favorite oatmeal recipes. I hope you guys will try them, and get back to me with what you think!

I just have to explain the pictures.. I made both these recipes for my family, so that’s why it looks sooo much more than the recipe 🙂

See ya,

The very beginning..

Hello, and happy new year to you all.

As some of you might know I have been blogging in the past, but ended it, and now I’m taking it up again..

If you don’t know who I am, you can read about that in the here.

But I wanna get straight to the reason why I’ve started blogging (again).

If you know who I am or follow me on Instagram you have probably realized that I’m very into food, and more specific, healthy food. I have been interested in it for a while, and I’ve learned a lot the past year. I have been reading books, listening to podcasts, watching videos and having conversations about health choices and food , and I have decided to share my journey with all of you guys.

So let’s get to it.. I went «plant-based» better known as «vegan» about five months ago, and I’ve have been noticing big and important changes to my life quality in general. I have more energy than ever, I sleep better, I train better, I’m generally happier, I haven’t been sick once and I feel proud of what I’m doing.

I don’t wanna tell anyone that what they’re doing is wrong, or what I’m doing is right. I simply wanna share what I do, and hopefully inspire others to try the same. If anyone have questions I’m glad to answer and try to help by the best of my ability. I’m definitely not a nutritionist, and I don’t wanna come across as someone who thinks he know’s everything, but I’m gonna share my experiences with the different subjects we come across.

Let’s learn from each other!!

I really hope you wanna continue this journey with me, and let me know if you have anything you want me to blog about!

Talk to you soon..
