    Pura vida in Costa Rica

    If you follow us on Instagram, you know that this March we ended up with taking a spontaneous but very much needed trip to the eco-friendly and wellness heaven, Costa Rica. We know that it sucks for the environment to fly and have big goals of stepping down, but we still recognize the value of traveling and the fact that health always comes first. You can read more in this post why we felt the need to go on a trip for the body and mind. Luckily, we are able to combine work and personal purposes – and visit this eco-conscious country with a heart beating for sustainability. We visited two…

    Life Cykel – the Aussie startup saving the world with mushrooms

    Ryan and Julian from Life Cykel are two Australian guys passionate about the possibility of using mushrooms to save the world. They discovered the enormous potential of providing a healing, plant-based and sustainable protein through mushrooms, and have built such a cool closed-loop business, where they collect coffee grounds from cafés and restaurants, grow mushrooms on them, and then return the edible end product. We were curious to hear more about the uses of mushrooms for healing, how mushrooms are important for the future of our planet, and how these guys came up with the fantastic idea! Can you tell us a bit about yourselves? – I’m Julian, and I…

    A personal story on how we became “green”

    Very often we get the question of why we are so radical brokkolinis. On that note, we thought we would share a bit of our separate, personal stories on how Radical Broccoli became what it is today, why we care about the planet, why we are total food geeks and keep a plant-based diet, why we are super curious about everything that can make you feel better and heal like crystals and superfoods. And last and probably most importantly – how we learned that the way we treat ourselves mirrors the way we treat our planet. Anette I am extremely uncomfortable with sharing, but I have thought about it for…

    What Would Nature Do? Flow into Spring with Inspiration from the Ayurvedic Medicine System

    You did it! You survived winter, some powerful full moons, the equinox and the intense solar storms. Now that we are out on the other side of hibernation-mode, we can begin turning our faces towards the sun and give our bodies some much-needed spring nurturing. Since I discovered the Eastern medicine system of Ayurveda and started applying the practices in my daily life, it has become a transformative force for my own well-being and energy, and well as how I engage in the sustainable development of the world around me. Maybe it can also inspire you! Extending the goal of health to embrace the health of our environment A lot…

    Q & A from our plastic-free month

    A whole month of plastic-free living (as we tried in February) gave us a real eyeopener on how much plastic we use, and especially how many unconscious decisions we usually make. It is definitely challenging to figure out which uses of plastic are necessary, and which that aren’t. Luckily, this is a matter that engages many people, and we were so inspired by all of your efforts and advice. It sure feels like a change is coming. As we have received lots of questions throughout the challenge, we thought we would summarize them in this post. Feel free to leave more questions or feedback in the comments!  1. What kind…

    9 advice for a spring cleaning of body and soul

    Tuesday the 20th March marked spring equinox, meaning that the day was exactly as long as the night and that more sunlight is reaching the northern hemisphere. Have you heard of manifestation? This time of year is the perfect time to manifest changes to your life and goals you wish to reach. It’s time for a spring cleaning.  In the yoga “language” they say that it’s the perfect time to set a “Sankalpa” – an intention for the time coming up. It is a short sentence that describes how you want to feel – for example, “I am strong”, “I am happy”, “I am peaceful”. It is not a wish,…

    Where we will spend easter

    Easter is approaching and we are so excited to be heading back to our second home, Portugal. You might wonder why we spend a lot of time there, and that is because our grandmother is Portuguese. Ever since we were born we spent every summer in Portugal and we have a huge family there. This is also where we are able to surf and enjoy more time in the ocean than we do in Oslo. We usually do a lot of beach cleanings in Portugal. Last year we picked up trash at a beach in Peniche together with some cool local girls, and it was heartbreaking how much trash filled…

    Three easy vegan recipes with VegMe

    There was a time in our lives that a plant-based diet was far from what we considered an easy, healthy and delicious way to cook. It was definitely more of a habit than a conscious choice. After entering into the plant world we have definitely figured out how much insanely good food that can be made with vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices. When VegMe launch plant-based alternatives that resemble animal-based products, they created an easier way for meat-lovers out there to transition a meal here and there into a green one – which is waaay better for the earth and your health! Today we want to share the ways…

    The ultimate guide to a month without plastic and why you should try

    As we started becoming aware of the world’s plastic problem, we played around with the thought of going plastic-free for a whole month. This would be our ultimate challenge, not only to see how much plastic we actually use in our everyday lives but also to find out what barriers exist in our modern society and in what areas we should seek out change. The idea was good and our intentions even better, but we always found reasons not to begin. We wanted to wait until the summer, thinking that would be easier with warmer weather (isn’t everything?), we wanted to plan it better, and we wanted to ease into…

    How to store fresh herbs

    We use lots of fresh herbs for almost every meal, but keeping them fresh for longer than a couple of days feels like quite a struggle. During the plastic-free month, we have been looking for alternatives to the herbs that are wrapped in plastic, and have found these nice little bouquets in fruit&veg shops across town. We have tried a few different things, and have landed on a trick to keep them fresh longer.  How to keep herbs fresh The trick is to cut off the ends as soon as you get home, just as you do with certain types of flowers. Then, pop them in a glass of fresh…

    Eco-fashion advice from a green heart

    About a year ago I wasn’t a conscious consumer. I visited fast fashion stores weekly and didn’t pay much attention to what I heard about the industry being unethical and bad for the environment. I really don’t know what happened, but one day I started to research and what I found was so shocking, that I changed my behavior almost overnight. I was wondering why people didn’t talk more about this, and how I could become a more eco-friendly and ethical consumer. I felt like doing something, and my blog et grønt hjerte (a green heart) was born, to collect and share the information that I found, and hoped that other people would…

    Easy homemade oat milk

    One of the biggest improvements we have had during this month without plastic is the reduction of food packaging. We usually bought a liter of plant-based milk once or two times a week as we both love to make warm drinks such as hot chocolate, matcha latte, and turmeric latte during the freezing winter. Check out some recipes for that here! Anyways, now we have entered into the world of homemade milk – which is actually doable for anyone, it’s super cheap, and so so so good for you and the planet.  Oat milk (1 liter) 200 grams oats (we use organic, gluten-free) 1 liter water A pinch of sea salt…

    While traveling the south-west coast of Sri Lanka I stumbled upon a beautiful yoga place in Welligama and instantly decided that I wanted to try it out.

I had a talk with the owners Amy, Martina and Alex to hear more about their life, how they all followed their dream to live in the tropics and do yoga, and their top tips on building a sustainable lifestyle.…

    These girls design the coolest swim wear we have seen in a while. On top of that, the swim wear is made of recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets! We had to find out more about the creators behind the brand, and how they came up with such a good idea.Photo: @vanhamies Hi HallaxHalla! Who are the people behind the brand? Halla Halla is a Nordic swimwear company established by Hanna Chalvet & Salla Valkonen in 2016.

    Beetroot burgers

    Veggie burgers are definitely here to stay, and we have tried many different types. This one is delicious and juicy, entirely vegan, and is best enjoyed with loads of toppings. Guacamole, hummus, red pesto and a good olive oil are some suggestions, and preferably a big pile of sweet potato fries! 10 burgers: 50 gram flax seeds 1 dl flour (we used gluten-free Jyttemel) Three large beets 2-3 tbs water A pinch of salt Fresh coriander 1 tbs cumin 1/2 tbs chili powder (or. fresh chili) Let the flax seeds soak in some water for a bit. They are used to hold the dough together (also called flax egg) instead…

    Healthy, tasty and hip – Surf Kombucha

    Have you ever wondered what the deal with kombucha is all about? This week we talked with the inspiring people behind the brand Surf Kombucha, which is a Norwegian based brand of fermented tea. Surf Kombucha is actually brewed on a peninsula in Norway by a nutritionist and a surfer. What is not to love?! Hi guys! Who are the people behind the brand? Nutritionist Maren Aasen from Norway, and my boyfriend and surfer Luca Guichard, who is half Norwegian, half French, but grew up in Portugal. Can you tell us the story behind the name Surf Kombucha? We wanted to reach out to young people who maybe didn’t know about…

    Ginger tofu wok with soba noodles and tamari

    This meal is super easy for those busy everyday evenings when you are craving something warm and filling. It is a great pre- or post workout meal, because of the proteins in the tofu and all the lovely nutrients. What is actually tofu? Basically, tofu is made the same way regular cheese is made from cows milk, and was “invented” in China for thousands of years ago. It is dense in nutrients such as kalsium, magnesium and vitamin A, and contains a lot of protein (approx. 13 grams per 100). There is a large ongoing discussion on whether or not tofu is healthy for you, based on the fact that…

    The corporate hippie Simen Knudsen

    Some people are so inspiring that you literally want to do just like they do. These are the kind of people we want to put in the spotlight in this series of “inspiring people & projects”. Simen Knudsen is one of those – a 32-year-old self-proclaimed corporate hippie who works for various environmental initiatives in Norway, and a dedicated surfer. We had a chat with Simen to get some insight into the life of a tall blond beach cleaner. Tell us a bit about yourself? I am a 32-year-old male. I was born in Nord-Jæren, and I am currently living in Oslo. I love to be outdoors playing, and surfing…

    6 easy ways to eat like a boss on a budget

    One thing we get asked a lot is if it’s expensive to buy healthy and sustainable food. Luckily this does not necessary hold true. Incorporating some small tips and tricks can make a huge difference on your wallet, thereby making healthy eating affordable to anyone. But first of all we would like to say that investing in your own health is actually the most important investment you will make. Not only does it make you healthy and happy, but also mother earth. When you first start to incorporate new things into a diet it may be expensive in the beginning, but once you have bought for example quinoa you will have it…

    The #1 environmental solution isn’t what you think

    Who saves the world? Plant based, non food-wasting, educated girls  Can we actually combat climate change at this point, and how do the things we do in our daily lives even matter? Here is the most up to date, science based list of actions that really give a bang for the buck. A group of scientists, geologists, engineers, biologists, economists, architects, NGOs, activists, entrepreneurs and scholars already asked this exact question, and together they wrote the amazing book “The Drawdown – The most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming“, edited by Paul Hawken. The book maps, measures, and describes the 100 most impactful solutions to global warming. There…

    3 ways to go green today

    As rational beings we tend to look for results of our actions, which in the big picture sometimes are hard to find. Therefore, we looked up three simple actions with a positive effect for your environment. 1. Does it matter if I use a plastic straw? It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the water if we continue to consume like we do today, as this previous post points out. #Stopsucking on single use plastic straws when you buy a drink. 2. Does it matter if I use plastic bags every time I buy food? 5 trillion disposable bags are used each year across the…

    Pink soup

    This soup is great for fall and is very tasty and nourishing. Beets are a great source of B vitamin, maganese, copper, magnesium, potassium and iron. Beets are also a great assistant in detoxing the liver, so this soup is perfect if you need a boost!  The ingredients in this soup are in season, which means that they not only taste their best right now, but it is also a more sustainable choice since they probably grow on a farm near by or at least in the same country. Ingredients 2 large beets 1 sweet potato 1 fennel leek coconut milk Start by pealing the sweet potato and the beets…

    Warm, sweet potato smoothie bowl

    Ice cold smoothies are really delicious in the summer, but when it starts getting colder outside it’s also possible to make “warmer” smoothies. Also if you pack them with a lot of bananas they can get too high in sugar and sometimes you just need something a bit more settling. If you mix in sweet potatoes, cauliflowers or even zucchinis, you make the smoothies not also more blood sugar friendly but more filling. Usually when making a smoothie with sweet potato you don’t need bananas or even avocados to make that creamy consistency. This smoothie is perfect after a work out or before bed time as it could make you…

    Coconuts

    This yoghurt is amazing for coconut lovers, people who cannot eat regular yoghurt, with tummy troubles, vegans, or just if you find it exciting to make stuff from scratch. With the added probiotics it contains good bacteria for the gut, which we all need. Making coconut yoghurt is SO much easier than it sounds! The most complicated part is that it takes some time for the probiotics to work its magic, so the yoghurt has to stay somewhere cool and dark for a day or two after you have mixed the ingredients together. Probiotic coconut yoghurt 2 cans of full fat coconut yoghurt 4 probiotic capsules How to? Let the…

    How to make Matcha latte

    Matcha latte has become a popular “pick-me-up” drink in recent years. It’s actually a ground powder of green tea leaves, and is said to give you a more calm energy than a cup of coffee would. It has its origins in China, and later spread to Japan, and now to the rest of the world. By adding some coconut oil in the drink you get an extra boost of energy, speed up your metabolism and power up your immune system!

    3 ways to get rid of plastic straws

    By 2050 there may actually be more plastic in the ocean than fish, which is maybe the most depressing thought ever. Then again, we still have 33 years to do something about it! This weekend marked the annual international coastal cleanup, arranged by Ocean Conservancy, and held all across the world. Today we spent a couple of hours cleaning up trash (mostly plastic) at Costa da Caparica in Lisbon. 1) Be aware that plastic straws are among the top 10 plastic items found at beach cleanups As soon as you become aware of the effect those tiny straws can have, you have taken the very first step.

    Summer time is synonymous with delicious ice creams. Even better, they don’t have to be bad for you. These ice creams have too many benefits, you will literally scream for more. They do not contain any dairy, weird additives or unnecessary nonsense.  We have made these in cooperation with Supernature. We have made three different types, all containing some sort of superfood. The rest of the ingredients are all simple stuff that you can get in any food store, so it will be easy for everyone try out the recipes.

    Buckwheat bowl with avocado, cherry tomatoes and eggplant

    Okay, maybe it’s not so pretty, but haven’t we all learned not to judge by the looks? This dish is really creamy with a risotto-like texture and rich taste. It’s both a perfect main for vegans or vegetarians and great as a side dish. We have written about the great benefits of buckwheat before, and it’s absolutely a great alternative to refined rice or pasta. It is naturally gluten-free (it actually has nothing to do with wheat, but it is a type of nut) and very friendly for the tummy 🙂 Buckwheat can be combined with so many things, such as sweet berries and dates in a porridge, or savory flavors such…

Carrots and oranges are great sources of vitamin C and vitamin A. As juice is really easy to digest, it gives instant energy. Therefore, it is a great “pick-me-up” during the day.

    Asian wok with soba noodles

    This meal is super easy to prepare and is SO tasty and spicy. Instead of white (wheat) noodles, we love using soba noodles which are made of 100% buckwheat (soba means buckwheat in Japanese). The noodles originate from Japan and contain manganese, really good protein (without all the saturated fat), carbohydrates and thiamin (also known as b1). Manganese is good for the energy metabolism (boosting your fat burning) and thiamin supports the function of the immune and nervous system keeping you healthy all year long – wuhuu! Miso soup has been a staple in Japanese diet dating back 2500 years! That is pretty incredible. Today most Japanese people start their day with miso which they believe stimulates…

    Smoothie parfait with chia seeds

    This yummy breakfast might look like something that’s hard to create, but it’s really not. You don’t need that many ingredients, and can of course make the smoothie in any way you like. By mixing in some chia “pudding” you get a super nutritious meal that gives you a lot of energy to take on the new day. These tiny seeds come from a plant that is similar to mint, which is called Salcia Hispanica, grown in Southern America. Back in the day, the Aztecs and Mayans used these seeds alot, and the name actually means “strenght” in Mayan. Today, they have become popular all over the world due to their…

    Soba noodles with homemade pesto

    An (easy) greasy pasta dish which is incredibly yummy – especially when made of the most nurturing ingredients. This pasta is made of buckwheat and the pesto is based on organic produce. It is a simple and quick meal to make, and should take about 15 minutes. As we have written in a previous post about buckwheat, there is something as amazing as pasta/noodles made of it. They are called soba noodles, and are widely used in the Japanese kitchen. The ones we have used here are 100% buckwheat, but there are a lot of different types from the brand King Soba with for example sweet potato and other vegetables. The benefit of using noodles…

It’s filled with goodness and wrapped with nori paper, which is actually dried seaweed. Seaweed has a lot of health benefits that you might not know of – including being rich in protein, lowering cholesterol, lowering cancer risk, being high in iron, high in dietary fiber, improving bone health and having an impressive iodine content (an extremely important mineral).

    The best raspberry and coconut cupcakes

    Denne oppskriften gir en deig med en smak av kokos og bringebær. Kokossukkeret har en slags gylden, søt og litt karamellaktig smak som passer perfekt i bakeverk. Deigen kan brukes både til kakedeig, et slags brød eller muffins – det er helt valgfritt! Ingrediensene er uten uten gluten og melk, og vil derfor tåles av de aller fleste. Hvis man ikke ønsker å bruke egg kan dette gjerne erstattes med linfrø blandet med vann eller chiafrø blandet med vann – begge har en bindende effekt.   1 brød og 10 muffins 1 kopp valgfritt mel (vi brukte bokhvete – obs for de med nøtteallergi) 1 kopp kokosmel 1/2 kopp kokossukker 1…

    Baba Ganoush is originally from the Middle East and is a dish based on aubergine, tahini, olive oil, and lemon. It tastes really good for dinner and has the same usage as hummus. Baba Ganoush er en rett fra Midtøsten som er basert på aubergine, tahini, olivenolje og sitron.  På arabisk betyr Baba Ganoush “pampered papa” eller “coy daddy” som muligens stammer fra de royale trakter. Ut ifra basen kan den varieres på mange forskjellige måter. Det smaker helt utrolig godt som tilbehør til middag, og brukes som en “dip” på samme måte som hummus, eller som en forrett med brød eller salte knekkebrød til.

    Det er skikkelig friskt å starte dagen med en grønn bombe av en smoothie med masse god topping. Denne er full av supermat, som er en enkel og rask måte å få i kroppen masse næring. Allikevel er konseptet “supermat” litt skremmende for mange. Helhetlig sett er supermaten både bra for kroppen og for jorda.

    Dette brødet er helt nydelig, med en frisk smak av kardemomme. Det er også det enkleste brødet man kan lage.

    Sjokoladeterter

    Disse søte sjokoladetertene smaker av sjokolade og har den beste konsistensen av brownies. Det er virkelig en dessert med god samvittighet, som gjør deg bra og smaker himmelsk! Fordi den er laget av mandler, inneholder de naturlig planteproteiner. Den andre hovedingrediensen, dadler, er en naturlig søtning som er genial å bruke i bakst fordi det binder deigen eller røren sammen og i tillegg er rik på kalsium. Det er viktig å velge de med best mulig kvalitet, det vil si at de er store og myke, ikke små og tørre. Ingrediensene til denne oppskriften er veldig enkle, og det eneste man kanskje bør investere i er ordentlig uprosessert rå kakao som man…

    Key lime pie er en skikkelig god, og ikke minst pen dessert. Toppen er kremete litt syrlig men samtidig knasende god, og bunnen er nøttete og søt. Opprinnelig er key limes fra Florida hvor limen var ekstra grønn og ekstra smakfulle. Key limes blir derfor ansett som en hver bartenders favoritt lime. Tradisjonelt lages denne kaken med mye fløte og egg men denne oppskiften er det kun brukt naturlige ingredienser fra morder jord, noe som ikke bare gjør det god men også full av næring og energi! Akkurat sånn som vi liker det. Men det skal ikke stå på smaken av den grunn, og da den ble servert første gang…

    Glutenfri himmel

    Her kommer en skikkelig god nyhet til alle som gjerne vil spise all den gode baksten, men som gjerne vil unngå gluten. Det Glutefrie Verksted ble startet av Monica Hellemann, som var ute etter å lage glutenfrie produkter som også er gode og næringsrike. Etter å ha prøvd noen av produktene er vi veldig happy for å finne noe som smaker godt, er økologisk og glutenfritt. Monica startet Det Glutenfrie Verksted fordi hun selv opplevde at det var mangel på utvalg av glutenfrie og sunne produkter i butikken, samtidig som at hun var ute etter de gode smaksopplevelsene. Vi kan ikke si annet enn at vi er megaimponerte! I denne omgangen har vi testet ut produktene…

    Grønn squashpasta med rød pesto

      Noen dager må lunsjen bare være super rask. Og den må være god. Denne fyller begge kravene, og kan lages på under ti minutter. Pasta av squash har veldig lik konsistens som pasta, bare at det er et litt sunnere alternativ! I tillegg er det er bra måte å snike i seg mer grønnsaker på, og de vil gi enda mer energi enn pasta siden de er bedre for fordøyelsen får man ikke lyst til å ta seg en lur etterpå. Squash pasta med rød pesto  1 squash 4-5 soltørkede tomater * 1 neve pinjekjerner god kvalitets olivelolje * Dersom de er veldig tørre bør de bløtlegges først. Aller…

    Bananbrød med sjokoladebiter

    Banabrød er så snacks. Har du noen overmodene bananer liggende er det en god grunn til å teste det ut. Konsistensen er noe for seg selv, og det smaker sykt godt med litt mandelsmør på eller alene. Bananbrød med sjokoladebiter  3 modene bananer en halv kopp mandelmel (bokhvetemel funker også) 3 spiseskjeer chiafrø i seks spiseskjeer vann eller 3 teskjeer eggerstatning (eller 2 økologiske egg) 1 teskje bakepulver 1 neve kakaonibs 2 spiseskjeer kanel Sett ovnen på 140 grader. Skrell først bananene og plasser de i en bakebolle og mot de med en stavmikser. Tilsett deretter resten av ingrediensene og rør med en skje. Hell til slutt røren over i…

    Fashion Revolution

    For noen dager siden ble det arrangert noe som heter Fashion Revolution med formål om å gjøre moteindustrien mer gjennomsiktig. Ideen ble til på bakgrunn av en ulykke i Bangladesh i 2013 hvor en hel fabrikk kollapset på grunn av usikkerheten til bygget og 1133 mennesker døde. Det har vært mange mindre pene hendelser opp gjennom tidene, og det blir viktigere og viktigere å få frem hva som faktisk skjer bak veggene. Ideen er utrolig kul, og det er en oppfordring om at man skal ta på seg et plagg man har, vrenge merkelappen så man ser hvem som har produsert den, og deretter legge ut bildet på instagram og tagge #whomademyclothes.…

    Butternut squash & quinoasalat

    Hva i alle dager? Butternut squash er noe man ikke ser alt for ofte på en norsk tallerken. Det er en type vintersquash som også kalles for butternutgresskar, og har form som en stor avlang pære. Skallet er lyseoransje, og ikke så tykt som gresskarets. Fruktkjøttet (jepp det er en frukt) er oransje, søtt og smaker utrolig godt. Hvis du ikke har testet det før så anbefales det virkelig, og det kan brukes til utrolig mye. Den kan ovnsbakes, lages som puré, brukes i suppe, stuing, muffins, brød, moses, lages til fries, has i lasagne eller gratineres . I Sør Afrika, hvor den brukes utrolig mye, griller de gresskaret helt gjerne med noe snacks…

    Saftige havreruter

    Som en liten dessert, energipåfyll eller snacks kan man med glede ta frem ei litta havrerute. De er søte, myke og veldig gode! Det er nærmest som en stor havregrøt laget i ovnen, og man trenger ikke mange ingredienser. Du trenger: 3 modne bananer 7 dadler 0,8 dl plante/nøttemelk Vaniljestang eller vaniljepulver (ikke vaniljesukker, men ekte pulver) 1 cup havregryn (ca. 2,4 dl) 1,8 dl valgfritt mel 1/2 cup blåbær (et lite glass) Ha bananer, dadler og melk i blenderen og kjør til det blir helt jevnt blandet.

    Homemade crunchy granola with mulberries

    The smell of homemade granola baking in the oven will tempt even the non-brekkie lovers. It is done after between 20-30 minutes depending on how crunchy you like it.

    Bakt søtpotet med quinoa, granateple og sopp

     Bakt søtpotet med quinoafyll (3-4 porsjoner): 1/2 – 1 søtpotet pr person 1 dl quinoa Champinjong/sopp Avokado Tomat Soltørket tomat Granateple Salt og pepper Sitron Paprikakrydder Kokosolje til steking Sett ovnen på 200 grader. Stikk hull i potetene med gaffel og sett dem i ovnen i mellom 45 minutter og 1,5 timer, helt avhengig av potetens størrelse. Våre var veldig store og var i ovnen ca 1,5 timer. Mot slutten av steketiden koker du opp quinoa med dobbelt så mye vann og lar det småkoke til quinoaen får “haler”. Smak til med salt, pepper, paprika og sitron. Hakk champinjongen og stek den raskt i kokosolje, og krydre. Bland quinoa, granateple og champinjong…

    Cashew yoghurt

    This is one of the best things we have made in a while. Imagine a creamy, nutty, fluffy and tasty yogurt made of clean, plant-based ingredients. It is a perfect weekend breakfast, post-workout meal or just a snack. It takes some time to make, so if you are in a hurry in the morning, it is better to make it the day before. If you keep it in an air-tight container, it will stay fresh for 2-3 days. Dette er noe av det beste vi har laget på lenge! Se for deg en kremete, nøttete, porøs og smakfull yoghurt som er laget av helt rene ingredienser og er full av energi. Dette er en…

    Taco fra scratch

    Selve konseptet taco trenger vel ingen nærmere introduksjon i fedrelandet. Men vi synes det var på tide å prøve å lage tacoen helt fra bunnen, av veggies, digge smaker og krydre og nybakte lefser. Her kommer tradisjonell fredagstaco på utradisjonelt vis. Oppskriften er inspirert av “Renere Liv” skrevet av Birgitte Magnusson og Tina Holt, med en tvist av Radical Broccoli. Taco har nærmest blitt regnet som nasjonalrett i Norge i mange år, selv om den retten mange lager her er ganske langt unna hva meksikanerne ville kalt taco. Tradisjonelt sett er taco en matrett av en rullet og brettet maistortilla fylt med kjøtt, fisk eller grønnsaker. I Mexico spiser man ikke skjell, det…

    Energikuler

    Det har blitt skikkelig poppis å lage energikuler, så vi måtte jo prøve å snekre sammen en oppskrift på dette. Resultatet ble ordentlig bra, og det er plutselig ingen kuler igjen. Når man begynner å bikke over mot slitenheten rundt fire-tiden er disse perfekte å ta frem. Eventuelt som snacks i forbindelse med trening. De er kun basert på naturlige ingredienser. Her får du både proteiner (chiafrø), sunt fett (kokosolje og nøtter), omega-3 (valnøtter og chiafrø), langsomme karbohydrater og vitamin-A (søtpoteten). Oh happy day! Ca. 10 Radical energikuler: 2-3 ss rå kakao 1/4 søtpotet 2 ss kokosolje 1 ss chiafrø 1 dl valnøtter 1 dl mandler 1 ss mandelsmør (Ikke krise hvis…

    Deilig kremete hummus

    Vi har laget ekstremt mye hummus de siste månedene, rett og slett fordi det er så godt. Vi smakte det for første gang i Dubai for noen år siden, der lagde de hummus til perfeksjon! Etterhvert blir man nærmest ekspert på kikerter, og det kan informeres om at det er stor forskjell mellom de ulike typene der ute! Selv synes vi at de aller beste er fra det norske merket Helios, som også er økologiske. I forhold til miljøet vil det antagelig være best å velge kikerter fra en pappbeholder, som for eksempel ICA sine I Love Eco kikerter. Ellers finnes det nok et stort sortiment på innvandrerbutikker hvor man som…

    Saftige scones, smashed avokado & rødbete- og myntejuice

    Det er ikke alltid like lett å få til glutenfri brødbakst, men disse ble virkelig vellykkede. De ble sprø utenpå og saftige inni, samtidig som de var enkle å lage. De har til og med blitt kvalitetstestet og godkjent av ekte brødelskere i fam’en. Saftige scones: 7 dl jyttemel (evt. speltmel eller annet mel du ønsker) 0,6 dl søtpotetpure 60 gram kokossmør (eller olje) 1 ss linfrø 2 ss yaconsirup (evt. honning eller lønnesirup) 2 dl valgfri plante/nøttemelk (vi brukte havremelk) 4 ts bakepulver 3/4 ts havsalt Vann etter behov Sett ovnen på 180 grader varmluft. Kok opp en liten søtpotet til den er mør. Ha den i en foodprosessor eller…

    Squash & brokkolilapper

    Kan det friste med noen annerledes lunsj/middagskaker? Disse er enkle å lage og fulle av basiske, grønne grønnsaker som gjør kroppen happy. Ikke bli skremt av grønnfargen før du har prøvd dem ut:) 10 små 1 squash Et par buketter brokkoli En håndfull spinat 2 egg 1 ss linfrø 1 ss kikertmel (eller annet mel) Oregano, urtesalt, pepper og fersk persille Olivenolje til steking  Kutt av topp og bunn på squashen, vask den og riv den med rivjern over en sil.

    Veggies + fisk = best for helsa & miljøet

    Er det så farlig med litt kjøtt, da? Mange vil tenke at dette ikke er viktig, og blar raskt over VG-artiklen med ny forskning. Fakta er at rødt kjøtt er assosiert med tarmkreft – en av de fire vanligste kreftformene i Norge (kreftregisteret). Nordmenns kosthold inneholder betydelig mer mettet fett enn hva som er anbefalt, noe man får spesielt store mengder av gjennom rødt kjøtt (fra firbeinte dyr). Siden 1950 har normenns kjøttkonsum fordoblet seg, og mesteparten av det som spises er rødt. Faren med dette er at det øker risikoen for kreft i tykk- og endetarm, i kontrast til fisk som reduserer risikoen for hjerte- og karsykdommer (NRK (1)). Ny forskning…

    Vårfrisk juice

    Om våren er det typisk at man kjenner forkjølelsen snike seg innpå bare fordi man har våget å ta av seg lua når solen har sagt hei. Derfor er det lurt å beskytte seg så godt man kan gjennom å få i seg godt med vitaminer i alle varianter. Denne juicen er en god blanding av farger, frukt og grønnsaker som gir en hel liter juice! Det kan man leve litt på. 1 liter juice: 2 små øko appelsiner 1 øko eple 4 stilker øko stangselleri 1 håndfull spinat 1/4 ananas 4 store gulrøtter Ingefær (så mye man liker) Sløsing av frukt og grønt? Hvis du lager mye juice og lurer på om…

    Sjokohavregrøt med baked almonds

    Havregrøt er en super frokost som gir god energi, og er smakfull hvis man bare gjør noen små triks. Havregrøten lages som i denne oppskriften. Her er den toppet med mandler og solsikkefrø som er bakt i ovnen i ca 15 min på 180 grader. Ved å riste mandlene blir de lettere å fordøye, og de smaker bedre!  Hver eneste lille mandel (og andre nøtter) er et lite næringskraftverk. De er en utmerket kilde til hjertesunne umettede fettsyrer, proteiner, vitamin E, riboflavin, magnesium, mangan, kobber og sink; samt en god kilde til kostfiber, kalium, jern, kalsium, antioksidanter flavonoider og fytosteroler.

    Chiakjeks

    Dagens oppskrift passer perfekt sammen med kakao. Disse kjeksene er kjempesmarte å ha med på farten, og blir som en slags mueslibar. De gir deg god energi, inneholder masse sunne varer OG smaker himmelsk! Kjeksene passer perfekt hvis man får lyst på noe søtt, men vil allikevel ikke gjøre at blodsukkeret ditt svinger. Chiafrøene gjør at konsistensen blir god og myk inni (men crunchy utenpå), samtidig som de er en fin kilde til omega 3 fettsyrer – den typen fett som de fleste behøver mer av. Videre er dadlene og chiafrøene begge rike på fibre som hjelper fordøyelsen. I nøttene får du enda mer gode fettsyrer samt masse planteprotein, som også finnes i…

    Ananas- og banansmoothie

    Smoothies er og forblir en stor favoritt. Det tar kort tid å lage og er derfor perfekt om morgenen. Denne smoothien er naturlig veldig søt og har en god milkshake konsistens som gjør den tykk og mettende. Det er tilsatt en spiseskje med hemphjerter som er en kilde til proteiner. Det er også mulig å ha i en neve med ferske mynteblader for en enda bedre smak. Både ananas og banan inneholder fiber som er perfekt for fordøyelsessystemet. Ananasen har også egenskaper som kan virke naturlig betennelsesdempende og bidrar derfor til å rense kroppen og gir masse god energi! Til én smoothie Frosne ananasbiter 2 bananer 2 dl vann eller…

    Organic is the new black @ Axel Guldsmeden

    The hotel group Guldsmeden Hotels is drifted sustainably, and by using mainly organic materials and food. We got to experience a dreamy weekend at Axel Guldsmeden in Copenhagen. The interior design is beautiful, and you drift into another world when you enter the front door. The interior is inspired by the Balinese style, where one of the hotels is located. The group has three other hotels in Copenhagen, as well as one in Oslo, Aarhus and the French Riviera. Guldsmeden Hotels er en hotellkjede som drives på en økologisk og bæredyktig måte – og vi har vært så heldige å få oppleve denne drømmen over en helg på Axel Guldsmeden i København.…

    Hjemmeladge horn

    Kan det friste med horn til helgefrokost? Disse er nesten for gode til å være sanne, glutenfrie, og en drøm i oppfyllelse for hvetebakstelskere som ikke tåler hvetebakst. Horn: 60 g økologisk smør 3 dl melk (vi brukte ris- eller havremelk) 1 pk gjær 3-400 g jyttemel (eller annet glutenfritt mel) 1 ts malt kardemomme 1 stk sammenvispet egg til pensling 1 ss sesamfrø til pynt Smelt smøret og ha i melken. Varm blandingen opp til den kjennes lunken (37 grader). Rør deretter ut gjæren. Bland mel og kardemomme inn i den lunkne blandingen, og elt det til en smidig deig. Ha i nok mel til at deigen blir glatt. La den heve i…

    Grønn smoothie med hvetegress

    Grønn smoothie med hvetegress (1 pers) 1 avokado 1 banan 1 neve ananas (eller annen frossen frukt) 1 neve spinat 1 ss hvetegress 2 dl vann Toppet med kokosflak, hempfrø og bakte mandler. Hva er hvetegress?  Hvetegress er også kalt naturens egen vidundermedisin. Fersk hvetegress er utrolig næringsrikt – kun 1 dl hvetegress juice har det samme næringsinnholdet som 2 kilo økologiske grønnsaker. Her er styrkelisten til hvetegress: Vitamin A (mer enn i gulerøtter), Vitamin C(høyere enn i appelsin), Vitamin B, kalsium, phosfat, magnesium, sodium og potassium. Altså en vitamin-, mineral- og antioksidantbombe! Som om ikke det er nok har hvetegress en avgiftende effekt på lever og blodet. Hvetegress inneholder også mye…

    Sjokolademilkshake

    Hvis det kan friste med sjokolademilkshake som bare tar noen få minutter så burde du sterkt vurdere denne! Det eneste du trenger er: 2 frosne bananer 2 – 4 ferske dadler Raw kakaopulver Nøtte/plantemelk En neve cashewnøtter (gir en crunchy, god konsistens) Ta ut stenen fra dadlene. Ha alt i en blender og kjør til den blir creamy. Litt om milkshakens bidragsytere: Cashewnøtter er egentlig frøene til cashewtreet, hvor det vokser cashewepler. Disse spises vanligvis ikke i Europa og USA, men er delikatesser i Karibien og Brasil Cashewnøtter er rike på jern, fosfor, selen, magnesium og sink. De er også gode kilder til fytokjemikalier (plantestoffer), antioksidanter og proteiner. Sjokoladens fabuloushet kan…

    Denne MÅ faktisk leses

    Sykest i verden Vi har lest en utrolig skremmende, grundig og innholdsrik bok – Sannheten på bordet. Boken er skrevet av den norske forfatteren og skribenten Niels Christian Geelmuyden, og den kartlegger alt man ellers ikke får vite om den norske matindustrien. Dette burde vært pensum for alle nordmenn! Det mest overraskende momentet i boken er når han beskriver hvordan det norske folk er blant det sykeste folkeslaget i verden. “Sannheten er at nordmenn har en høyere forekomst av kreft i prostata, testikkelkreft, tarmkreft, hudkreft, diabetes, multippel sklerose, hoftebrudd, benskjørhet, kronisk smertediagnose, fibromyalgi, ryggplager, astma, psoreasis og allergier enn noen andre land”. Her er noen av faktaene som presenteres i boken (direkte sitert): “[…]nærmere 700.000 nordmenn…
