Healthy snack


chia seed

It’s has been a very grey Monday with light rain and plentiful clouds outside the window. I made sure to cheer it up though with a tasty and colourful snack in the afternoon. Chia pudding is a new favourite and today I topped it with raspberries, greek yoghurt, mango and granola. The kitchen cloth underneath the plate is from Borough Market in London. It’s a gift from David’s sister Julia and I love having it hanging in the kitchen, it’s like having a bit of London with us. Beautiful London with all its wonderful food markets! xx

I think the best way to cool off when the summer heat hits the hardest is with smoothies made out of frozen berries. The ones above are made from frozen raspberries, vanilla quark and low-fat yoghurt, so they are very low in calories, but rich in taste. Perfect. To get inspired on more kinds of smoothies you can check out the food network, who have listed 50 different recipes.

Here in Sweden we are longing for rain now since the biggest forest fire in Swedish history (in modern time) is ongoing. The county is surrounded by smoke and lots of people have had to evacuate. Luckily we have got help from both Italy and France with “water bomb” helicopters, and the firefighters are starting to get more control over the situation. My thoughts go to everyone that is affected by the fire, and I keep my fingers crossed that no more people or animals will be hurt from it.

Lots of love! xx
