Sinus health is something I want to discuss about in this blog post. Through my experience, I have realized that some foods trigger my sinus and immune system. It’s due to cross allergies you eat that affects your pollen allergy. In my case, I have grass pollen and foods like oats, peanut butter, legumes, tomatoes and wheat triggers that immune response, affecting my health. When I got the news I was kind of devastated since that has been my diet for so many years, however it all made sense to me. Therefore, I could choose to either feel like a victim or make a choice of seeing the opportunity in changing my well being. I made a commitment to look at solutions, how could I replace other foods and still enjoy? That’s why I changed my mindset into looking at recipes replacing porridge or overnight oats to smoothie bowls for breakfast, in addition to making a grainfree granola as topping which is the recipe I will share with you here!
I hope this is insightful for you and that it can make you reflect on your own personal experience to make those necessary changes into feeling better!
What’s without a doubt is that making this granola is way healthier than the store bought cereal loaded with sugar;)
It’s glutenfree, grainfree, vegan and refined sugar free! And better because of chocolate..
• 1 cup raw cashews
• 3/4 cup shredded coconut
• 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
• 1/4 cup hemp seeds
• 1/4 cup sesame seeds
• 1/4 cup ground flax
• 1/4 cup cacao powder
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
• 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
• I also added some almonds and walnuts. If you would want to swap them for some of the other seeds instead you can, or add them to your liking as I did.
Mix all ingredients together until all ingredients are well covered with the maple syrup and oil. Then spread it out evenly on baking sheet with parchment paper.
Bake on 160 degrees for 15 minutes, then allow to cool to room temp for 45 minutes-1 hour before breaking into clusters.
You can store it in an air tight container or glass jar and you’ll have your granola ready for your breakfast with yoghurt or milk or on top of your smoothiebowl!
Easy peasy pancakes and with delicious toppings: blueberry sauce and caramelized banana. So so yummy guys.
I love when you have few ingredients, can remember it in your head and the result is just mind blowing, especially with these toppings on!
But first, some deep reflection. Life can seem dull or meaningless sometimes, especially when facing difficulties in your life and in regard of the corona situation. However, perspective is key to transform your mindset and how you face these challenges. For a moment, unwanted feelings can occur, your mind shifts to victim mentality and one can forget the great gifts in life. But that is why I’m inviting you to do one small change about it, as simple as making yourself pancakes for breakfast. It for sure helps your mood and it’s a nice way act of loving yourself. I’m not saying this is the overall solution here, it’s only a small trick to lighten up your day and start off your morning best way possible.
When starting your day, your mind wonders back to the old thinking patterns, so did you know we think the same thoughts over and over again since we are not conscious or aware of it? That’s why taking time to prepare your breakfast can be a mindful practice if you aren’t the type to sit still and mediate for 10 minutes. Then use your time different by being aware of what you are doing, the ingredients, following the instructions mindfully, being aware of smells and another thing you can do while waiting to flip over your pancake is repeating to yourself positive affirmations when you start focusing on your worries, to do list or troubles. Being in the present moment is as its other meaning to it, a present to life.
I hope you find this helpful and let’s act on it!
• 2 cups flour (I used whole meal since it’s healthier)
• 1 cup oat milk plus 4 tbsp more if it’s too thick
• 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• Make the blueberry compote by simply put frozen blueberries into the microwave. It’s quick and it’s made without any refined white sugar.
• Caramelize the bananas by frying them on the pan with coconut oil, honey or maple sirup and cinnamon!
1. Mix all dry ingredients and let aside the milk with the apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes. This is the reason they rise!
2. Then stir in all ingredients together and heat up a pan on medium heat with coconut oil.
3. Cook them until golden brown and flip them over when you see bubbles on the surface!
Enjoy these healthier, vegan pancakes, they will make you so happy:)
As I’ve been reading the kaizen method, it has inspired me to do small changes every day and this is one of them. To add at least one superfood ingredient to my meal every day. I know that it can be overwhelming or difficult to do big dietary changes or maybe feeling off board with the rest of the other healthy people around the world. Especially when looking at instagram influencers promoting this and you don’t know where to start. Therefore, when the temptation to sugar or unhealthy foods strikes in, that seems rather fairly as it’s what you’re familiar to. However, I promise you that if you choose to make one small positive change of habit each day, eventually it will become a lifestyle, a way you sooner or later are drawn to and it no longer feels like a choice. At least that has been my experience and I encourage you to start off this journey and process by making this superfood breakfast bowl which also is a sustainable way of eating too! Have I convinced you enough to make that small change towards a healthier lifestyle? If yes, then first step is to add these ingredients in a smoothie blender:
• 1 cup frozen mango
• 1 frozen banana
• Juice of half an orange
• 1 tsp power matcha
• 2 generous tbsp of coconut cream (Greek yoghurt also works well)
As the package says, better with chocolate! Also, I love the flavor combination with a hint of mint, and you can’t even taste the superfood ingredient spirulina! So you kinda get away easily by eating a tasty smoothie bowl offering you nutritional value in all ways! Loaded with antioxidants etc.
I also love how simple it is to make it and the delicious toppings you can have with it. Feels like a treat and yet it’s healthy! It’s honestly a revolutionary way of eating and I encourage you to add the superfood powders in your smoothie bowl as it can add taste and contribute in enhancing your energy levels and well being. So what are you waiting for, let’s start this food revolution together!
• 300 dl frozen blueberries
• 1 frozen banana
• 1 tbsp of creamy nut butter
• 1 tbsp powder of spirulina, mint & cacao from super.nature
• 50-100 ml coconut milk
Mix all ingredients together in a blender. Add toppings like granola, gojiberries, cacao nibs, coconut chips, nut butter and banana slices! Ps: remember that if you want the smoothie bowl thick, be careful on the liquid and go easy on it little by little:)
Those are hemp seeds, gojiberries, cacao nibs & cacao powder! Remember that a healthy lifestyle equals a healthy mind, which will have a positive effect on how you impact and perceive your outer world.
You know what they say, outer beauty reflects from the inside. I’ve been lately understanding this, as my morning habit these days has been to drink celery juice.. I can tell from experience that my skin is glowing, purer, less irritated. Also, this green beauty smoothie helps. It’s a great way to get your needed doze of greens and superfood. Aaand, it tastes really good! I am familiar with the skepticism, been there and tried so many times to nail the taste of it. This time I have, and therefore I’m really happy to share the recipe with you guys so that you can also benefit from a healthy smoothie that will make you glow and feel energized.

I would never have thought that these gluten-free and healthy scones could have turned out so good! Thanks to the gluten-free flour mix from helios, making that possible. One is not enough when they have nuts, raisins and dark chocolate in them. The dough is not dry at all, and they taste great with nutbutter, chocolate spread or berry jam! It’s the perfect recipe to bake on a relaxing Sunday, and the time baking them won’t take you long. Can’t resist them can you? Let’s bake em!
I absolutely love this smoothie bowl version. It reminds me of being in a tropical country and the bright colors just makes me immediately smile. Also I adored the combo of dried apricots on top, haven’t had that with my smoothie bowl before and I’m so happy I tried that! So so good.
It’s so easy to put flavor into your natural yoghurt. And my favorite these days is matcha. I use the superfood powder “power matcha” from https://www.yoursuperfoods.eu/products/organic-power-matcha-mix. This mix is all natural and organic, a nutrient-dense blend of greens and brain boosting superfoods to optimize your focus! It’s an excellent source of antioxidants and is high in vitamins, iron and potassium. Instead of swearing to your coffee with caffein in the morning, give it a try with this breakfast bowl instead which even contains a serving of your daily greens! Far from boring guys. And with only health advantages to offer you.
How to make it
1. You’ll need Greek or dairy free yoghurt version like coconut. Mix it with 1 tsp of matcha and blend well together.
2. Add your favorite toppings with it. I used raw honey to sweeten it up, cashew nuts, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, flax meal and blueberries!
Enjoy your wholesome breakfast bowl, with a tasty, healthy, nutritious and interesting yoghurt to kick start your day!
