Oh hey, remember me? Motivation to blog has been rather low. Actually motivation in general has been rather low. Really not trying to be a downer, but I’ve reached that point in my stay here in Sweden where I realize I’m more than half way through. Sad day!
And I want time to slow down, so I can figure my s**t out!
Melon & iced coffee pre 4mi run – makes a body happy when the mind wanders. Now that I can relax and run a little more, I’ve started to love it more. Running = de-stressing. Now Stockholm weather needs to choose a season and stop throwing in these winter storms when it’s supposed to be spring. Snow tomorrow? there go my awesome running plans.
Another thing that makes a body happy – big green smoothies. That I drank half of before photographing. Keep your body happy, and the mind will surely follow. At least that’s what I keep telling myself.
I’m indecisive and all over the place this week. This was part 1 of 3 of lunch. Quinoa and hummus? I’ll take it.
Oh yes, it happened.
Phish food happened. I’m a sucker for marshmallows. I can’t believe that would have cost $4 on any other day.
Really want to do your body some good? Try this recipe for chilled cucumber avocado soup. It’s the easiest thing ever – the blender does all the hard work for you. Did I mention I was feeling lazy? (Loving my failed attempt to make the bowl look pretty…)
And if you need a few more carbs to go with your raw soup, make buckwheat pan-bread. Or crepes. Whatever you want to call them – warm and delicious is what I’m voting for. Maybe one of these days I’ll remember what ingredients I used and post a proper recipe? You may have to beg for it…
Sweet potatoes for breakfast – when you’re out of all fruit, milk, and cereal, and oatmeal is the last thing you want. Packed a nutritional punch, given the circumstances under which it was thrown together.
And I don’t even know what to call this, eaten at 4:30pm as fuel for a killer 6pm CoreBoard workout class.
Those sugar cravings are still hitting hard. Trying to kill this beast once and for all – a few raisins at a time. Did that even make any sense? Ha.
And yes, I eat green sludge for breakfast. Mmm! (It’s vega, for those who were actually curious)
And, for today’s random kitchen adventure…
I made sauerkraut, round 2! (and drank lemon water) I was introduced to the idea by the Pure2Raw twins’ lovely tutorial.
It’s really super easy – all you need is cabbage and salt. Not to mention budget friendly! Here in Sweden, a pre-made jar of kraut costs about $5 – for one jar. A gigantic head of cabbage costs about $2, 1T of salt costs less than $1, and I got four jars out of it.
And I only used 3/4 of the head of cabbage. Oh yes. (Thank goodness I save my empty jars! That’s one thing a nut butter addiction is good for)
I definitely had something else to say, but (rather fittingly) I forgot. [[did I really just use the word fittingly? where is my brain…]]
Oh yes, a few things of note I now have a dailymile account for tracking workouts, if you want to know what I do to move every day. And I also have instagram! (finally) If you want to see all my musings in picture form, follow me! (username: eatlearndiscover)
Every have scatterbrained time periods? Any tips on how to get some motivation going?
