Work kept me too long tonight but I finally got out to hit the dark. It was mild out there and I did an easy one: 4 km running down the hills and 4 km getting back up again. No, I didn’t run as much…

I used cross country poles which gave me a good all body workout and I aimed to keep my pulse low. I think I did great, well done to me!

Gluten free bread

It’s no secret that I love a good burger (and cinnamon buns). I don’t see burgers as unhealthy fast food unless you eat it at an unhealthy fast food joint. I usually don’t, although I visit such places every now and then.

Anyhow, I made burgers last night. I get my meat from a farmer so my freezers are filled with grass fed calves and moose who have lived their lives in the wild. I try to avoid all other kinds of red meat actually. It’s tricky to find organic chicken in Sweden hence I don’t buy it very often.

Toppings are important so I build my burger very high: I added lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, taleggio cheese and truffle mayo.

What about the bun, you may wonder? I made it myself. I try to eat gluten free although I fail most of the time when I am out and about because I really love a good sourdough bread. However, this time I made bread based on corn flour. It’s super easy and real quick.

The recipe is from a Swedish cookbook. It would really go well with soup, or as a breakfast bread!

  • 40 g olive oil

Breathing space

I’ve longed for my breathing space all day. The moment where I don’t have to do anything else at all but to put one foot in front of the other. Again and again in the speed that my body prefers at this time. I look forward to my kilometers in the dark. To run and fill my lung with fresh air. To fill my blood with new oxygen. To run with snow under my shoes and with sweet music in my ears. Or at least somebody who talks.

I love how running can be so much. Tough intervals in competition with others and soft moments to just be yourself.

Green smoothie

I’m back in the smoothie game again after having lived through weeks and weeks without having a single go at it. I do love smoothies. I could probably live on smoothies (and cinnamon buns)!

Green smoothies is a real treat for all the cells in your body and if you think that your green smoothie tastes a bit like, well, grass, then add some pineapple. It really does the trick when you start mixing with all those green super powders.

My smoothie was a true delight and I used orange juice (red oranges), spinach, hemp protein, banana, mango, goji berries and green super powder.
