Who knew… Continue reading Vegan creamy potato gratin! | Vegansk potatisgratäng | Recipe
Christmas is just around the corner, and like previous years… it doesn’t feel like christmas at all.

Luckily i have… Continue reading Vegan Christmas food recipes | Vegansk jul mat recpept | Part 1
Hello and good morning everyone! I've been meaning to sit down and write some posts all week, but there just hasn't been time. It feels like i have been saying that alot recently, but this whole term has been filled with school assignments and i am still studying 2 courses at once so there is… Continue reading The week that’s been – My birthday, weekend in Stockholm and the past week
I need to stop saying that i don't like certain foods, because turns out that i do infact like many of the foods i say i don't like.

Aside from the regular question of, "how do i recover?" i also get asked frequently by friends/family/partners of someone who is sick, or someone they suspect is sick. Being close to someone who you see is struggling - whether they are open about it or not, can be incredibly frustrating, sad, stressful and many other… Continue reading What to do if a friend/partner is struggling with an eating disorder?
In the past i have made zoats (i.e oatmeal with zucchini) and caulioats (i.e oatmeal with cauliflower). But i don't think i have ever tried adding carrots to my oatmeal. Not that i can remember anyway. But recently i have seen the dish, carrot cakes, appearing online and i thought it was about time i… Continue reading Carrot cake oatmeal with coconut milk
The past while i have had to use aluminium foil when baking or cooking. Or let me rephrase that: I ran out of baking paper and had aluminium foil at home so choose to use that instead of buying more baking paper, or investing in reusable baking mats. I have then gotten several/quite a few… Continue reading Aluminium foil….what’s the big deal? |Health/environment impacts.
Friday the 30th November, and that means it is my birthday today!!

LIfe update! It feels like it's been a while since i last wrote a personal/life update..... And i really don't know/can't remember what i have shared or not shared.

How to switch up your regular roasted veggies? Make a tomato casserole out of them!

Also i am sure… Continue reading Vegetable & tomato casserole with garlic bread | Vegan
Let's be honest.... one of the worst parts about cooking is having to clean up. Or that is how it is for me anyway.

And when i meal prep there is a huge pile of… Continue reading Creamy vegetable one pot pasta | 15 minute recipe | Vegan
I've always said that i am not a huge pizza lover.... and i wouldn't say that i am a pizza lover and would 95% of the time choose another food to eat.

Scones are definitely very underrated according to me. If you ever get bread cravings but don't want to/can't go to the store, or don't like store bought bread... then make scones.

Something i have seen alot of online in recent years.... is a normalizing of certain behaviour, which in my opinion is not the healthiest of behaviour.

One of the things I miss as a vegan is being able to buy premade mixes such as potatosalad, beetroot salad and coleslaw.

And in all honesty, its better when you know… Continue reading Vegan coleslaw & vegan potato salad recipe!
