Today it happened. The news we have been waiting for, for like 6 months!! So happy and relieved, finally. It’s never as hard as to go around and just be waiting and not knowing if one can stay in the country or not.

So we celebrated with Korean BBQ. I haven’t been eating much meat and basically have been cutting it out of my diet completely lately so it was really delicious. That’s my cheat in life once in a while. As well as ice cream. Always ice-cream.

Sunday

Woke up at 8am today, the longest sleep-in I had in a while. It’s been a long week at work, and things constantly felt like it were going against me. So I was very much happy to close up on Saturday and start my weekend.

After work I went home and changed into something nicer, and we drove to a friend’s place for dinner. They served us with lamb cutlets, roast potato’s and tzatziki and cheese and mango ice cream for dessert. Around 12am I was so tired and we drove back home. Yet I wasn’t asleep until probably 2am with a mind still being awake even though the body was exhausted.

Lazy Sunday morning started with coffee and watching the morning TV in the couch. Later on we went to Ikea to spend our 60$ voucher that was about to expire and eat lunch (you can see how much we Swedish people like our sauce) . Really just got rather unexciting things like a new frying pan and lunch boxes..

For dinner we made bibimbap, I had marinated tofu with mine and Alex cooked up a scotch fillet. It was so yummy. Such a simple dinner but completely satisfying. Now it’s 9.21 and I will make my move to the bed as the tired nut I am.

Goodnight x

Blueberry milk porridge

I got a new favorite breakfast! I am not much for oats for breakfast usually as it’s a bit to..plain? But its super filling and it’s easy to up the calories for a steady breakfast. I simply boiled 1 dl of oats with 2,5 dl of water for about 4 minutes, added 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 1 tablespoon of vanilla protein powder, let it simmer for another minute or two. Transfer to a bowl, added sliced bananas, blended 1 dl of fresh blueberries with 1 dl of oat milk and poured it of the porridge. Tadaaaa, yum!

easy snacks

I have been indulging in sweets and sugar for the past week, and even if its nothing wrong with that (but moderation is key) I just feel like I need to reset my cravings. If I have sugar one day, I crave sugar everyday for at least a few days after, absolutely sugar addiction. So instead of having nothing and just ride out the craving because I so easily give in, I need to replace it with something. Here’s some quick and easy snacks that I had through out the day!

Raw bar – 1 cup mixed nuts (I used almonds, walnuts and cashews) 1 cup pitted fresh dates, 1 cup goji (soaked for 5-10 minutes) and raisins. Mix together in a processor and shape into a rectangle, put in the fridge to set before cutting into pieces.
