Raw Brownies with glaze

Rå brownie stykker med glasur


Happy New Year! I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful year that went by. 2014 has been crazy to me. So much has happened and I’ve learned so much. I turned 18 which means I am of age, I’ve gotten a drivers licence, taken a diving certificate in Indonesia, participated in Singapore International Mathematical Challenge, run half marathons, made musicals and much much more. Thank you everyone for making it a year worth remembering. I hope 2015 will be an amazing year for all of you!

I really like all the posts popping up on my Bloglovin feed with 2014 roundups, so I thought it would be fun to see, which of my recipes from 2014 were the most popular too. Here are the recipes you liked the most this year:

Avocado Brownies (I wasn’t surprised at this, since the “mother-recipe” is the most popular post on this entire blog)

Healthy Cookie Dough Bites

Raw Coconut, Blueberry & Almond Tarts

Paleo Marble Cake

Healthy Coconut Macaroons


Oh, and is it okay if I just add my five favourites too? :P

Kale & Cabbage Salad w/ mustard vinaigrette

Healthy Gluten Free Banana Bread

Zoats w/ maple caramelized pears

Egg-Free Scrambled Eggs

Spaghetti Squash w/ roasted hazelnut & cauliflower sauce


Godt nytår! Jeg kan slet ikke takke jer nok for året, der gik. 2014 har været utrolig. Der er sket så mange ting og jeg har lært så meget. Jeg er blevet 18 og dermed myndig, taget kørekort, fået dykker certifikat i Indonesien, deltaget i en international matematikkonkurrence i Singapore, løbet halv maratons, lavet musical, og meget meget mere. Tak alle sammen for at gøre det år, der er værd at huske på. Jeg håber 2015 bliver et fantastisk år for jer alle!

Jeg er helt vild med alle de posts, der lige nu popper op på min Bloglovin feed med 2014-roundups, så jeg syntes, det ville være sjovt at se, hvilke af mine opskrifter fra 2014 var de mest populære. Listen kan ses ovenover. Og så er det vel okay lige an inkludere mine egne yndlings også ikke? Så de er i liste 2.


Last January 1st I posted some new year resolutions just for fun and I was very happy to look back at them and confirm, that I’ve actually achieved all of them: ★ more photography ★ run a half marathon (I’ve actually run 7 this year ★ go to more concerts (YES! This was the year of concerts) ★ explore more vegetarian food ★ buy clothes I actually like ★ start dancing modern.


I was so happy to read my resolutions from last year and appreciate that I’ve actually achieved them. If I hadn’t written them down I think I would now take for granted that I’ve actually run all those half marathons (because it isn’t such a big deal as it once was), and that I actually like my closet now. We tend to forget what we once wanted just because we’ve achieved it now. So I’ve decided to write down some of the things I really want to do now again. My 2015 resolutions.

1) Run a 10K in under 50 minutes (I’ve improved a lot during the last half a year, so I should get there soon)

2) Improve my photography (oh how I dream to one day be as talented as my two idols Ditte @ The Food Club and David @ Green Kitchen Stories)

3) Stop snacking as much as I do now

4) Learn to play the guitar (this has been a dream for such a long time – I have to do something about it)

5) Learn more about gluten free baking (ever since I discovered Thea’s amazing blog Baking Magique I’ve become very interested in gluten free baking)


Sidste første januar postede jeg nogle nytårsfortsæt, og jeg blev virkelig glad, da jeg kiggede tilbage og opdagede, at jeg faktisk har opnået dem alle: mere tid til fotografi ★ løb et halvmaraton (jeg har faktisk løbet 7) ★ gå til flere koncerter (YES! Dette var koncerternes år) ★ lav mere vegetarisk mad ★ start med at danse moderne.


Jeg blev så gad da jeg læste fortsætterne og værdsættede, et jeg faktsik havde opnået dem alle. Hvis jeg ikke havde skrevet dem ned, ville jeg i dag ikke være så glad for at have løbet et halvmaraton (for det er ikke så stor en ting, som det engang var for mig) eller have et klædeskab, jeg faktisk godt kan lide. Vi har det med at glemme de ting, der engang var drømme, bare fordi vi har tingene i dag. Så jeg har besluttet mig for at skrive et par ting ned igen. Mine fortsæt for 2015:

1) Løb nu bare de satans 10K på under 50 minutter (jeg har forbedret mig meget det sidste halve år, så mon ikke det kommer snart)

2) Forbedr mit fotografi (åh hvor jeg dog drømmer om en dag at være lige så dygtig som Ditte fra The Food Club eller David fra Green Kitchen Stories)

3) Hold op med at snacke så meget, som jeg gør nu

4) Lær at spille guitar (dette har været en drøm længe, så nu må jeg tage mig sammen)

5) Lær mere om gluten fri bagning (siden jeg opdagede bloggen Baking Magique er jeg blevet virkelig interesseret i det)


I am currently on ski holiday in Flachau, Austria with my lovely family. It is great here and it is nice to be back on the slopes, but I kind of miss home, my friends and my kitchen. So the recipe I’d like to share today is one I made some weeks ago. And look how I uphold the tradition about sharing a healthy chocolate snack on the first day of the year (;

Happy New Year!


Lige nu er jeg på skiferie i Flachau, Østrig med min dejlige familie. Her er skønt og det er dejligt at være tilbage på pisterne, men jeg savner alligevel hjemme, mine venner og mit køkken en smule. Så opskriften i dag er en, jeg lavede for nogle uger siden. Og læg lige mærke til hvordan traditionen med en sund chokolade snack holdes i hævd her på årets første dag (;

Godt nytår!
