Awesome crayfish salad

Salad with crayfish, veggies, strawberries and soy dressing

Ah, verry awesome summer salad! Almost all the greens are from my own garden, so proud! One of the many things I really love about summer - my wonderful garden! It has all different kinds of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, chili, onion, fresh herbs.. Just amazing! (: This salad was so great! The combo with fresh strawberries, crabfish and soy was verry delicious, definitely going to make that one again. The colors are simply gorgeous too, so bright and vibrant! For veggies, I just used what I had, but feel free to use whatever you like. Also, crayfish is a great source of protein and doesn't contain any fat at all.

Nothing better to kickstart the day, it leaves me with so much good energy and positivity. Tonight i'm planning a trip to the cinema with some of my best buddies, really looking forward to get some time with my girls, I miss them alot!

Coconut oatmeal

BREAKFAST Coconut oatmeal topped with banana, coconut and flaxseeds

I really love experimenting with my oatmeal at the moment, and this must be one of my favorites! I really love coconut, and toghether with the sweet banana it really brings out all the amazing flavours! It actually reminds me of the beach, verry exotic and yummy (: Coconut is also super healthy for you. It's verry rich on lauric acid, which is known for being verry antibacterial and antifungal. It also contains zero trans fatty acids, which is pretty amazing! I put half of the banana in the porridge, and use the other half as topping. If you want to, you can add some extra sweetener such as honey or stevia. I cook my porridge in the microwave, super easy and just as good! Cook it for about 2-3 minutes.

Shake it up!

BREAKFAST Smoothie topped with oats, flaxseeds, almonds and cherries
DRINK Watermelon shake with ice cubes

Yum yum yum! This was so great! In the breakfast smoothie i have raspberries, banana, salad leaves, milk and limejuice. I almost always add some kind of veggie to my smoothies, it really makes them so much more healthier, and you really can't taste it. In this one i used a verry light green sort of salad (can't remember the name), so it didn't ruin the pretty pink color (: But you can use any greens you want: Kale, spinach, carrots etc. Especially kale is incredibly healthy, so go ahead!
The watermelon shake was sooo great to! When i was in Thailand last year, we drank these everyday while lying at the pool. So delicious, healthy and refreshing! Perfect on hot summer days. The only ingredients are watermelon and ice cubes. Just throw it all into a food processor for a minute or two, and there you have it!
