The calendar says it is autumn. But the weather doesn’t. Which is quite nice actually. I’m looking so much forward to autumn but I won’t say no to another few days of summer ;)
Autumn means berries! The last berries are getting ripe now and I enjoy it with all of my heart. Today when I was walking the dog I came across a bush of blackberries. Big, sweet, shining blackberries hanging on the bush ripen in the last sun. So what did I do? I grabbed a big handful of them and took them with me home to cook something with them.
On of my good friends from ballet had brought some very delicious-looking snacks with seeds, nuts and berries in them for dance. They made me think of my flour-less bread with nuts and seeds, which I made in the spring, and I instantly thought to myself: you got to make something like those!
And so I did. And I was not disappointed. They taste heavenly. I also added some dark chocolate (you know me). Mmm… delicious and healthy. Oh how I love that combination.
It is great being back to ballet. One thing though: I have been running more than I’ve ever done before this summer, which means that getting back to dance isn’t very hard. I just forgot that you use some completely different muscles when you are dancing, than you do when you run. So I just danced like I usually do.
Result? I’ve gotten a pulled muscle.
Nooo… it’s horrible. I’ve never tried that before. And I already hate, hate, hate it. Yesterday I wanted to go for a long run. I’d been looking forward to it the entire day. It would be a perfect way of ending a long school week. But no. My muscle wouldn’t allow me to go running.
So right now I’m waiting for my dad so we can go biking together. That’s nice – I just like running better. And I go mad if don’t get to work out at least every second day.
Well in the meantime while I can’t go running I can do other stuff – such as baking healthy snacks.
I hope you’ll like these. Perfect for on-the-go and high in healthy fats and protein from the eggs.
