Happy (almost) Easter!

Already almost easter – wow. And we still have snow here in Denmark. I can’r believe it. But anyway – it’s nice. It means that spring must be just around the corner.
It’s easter break and right now I’m at my grandmother in Jutland. My parents and brother are on a ski vacation in France, but since I’m going to Barcelona on Tuesday (wuhuu, whoopee, yeaaah!!!) I couldn’t join them. That’s a shame – I really love skiing. But I can’t wait to go to Barcelona!!!
But first of all, I’m here – at my grandmother – in Jutland. And it is so nice!
I’ve actually never been with my grandmother all alone (well, yes, but I don’t remember). I have a brother and 5 cousins on my mother’s side of the family, so we’re used to be a lot of kids together. But not this time. And that’s actually ok. It’s very nice and quiet. But then again, my grandmother never sits down. She’s one of those people who always have a billion things to do and I really like that.
I arrived today. Then we had a nice lunch and then went to Vejle (a medium-sized town in Jutland) and when we came home again I dressed the living room for Easter.
My grandmother is very crafty and have made a lot of the ornaments herself. I especially adore the rabbits in this picture below:
Oh, and look at the egg in the upper left corner above – I made that one when I was like 6 years old together with my cousins. And my grandmother still keeps it – isn’t it sweet?
A great thing about being here is that I have time for doing lots of cozy things – like blogging, photography and cooking. Today I made a new take on my granola muesli. Can’t wait to try it tomorrow.
For a long time, I’ve been wanting to share this recipe. And now I have the time.
Always when I come home from school I like something very filling to eat. Especially on the days I’m going to ballet and I know I won’t be home for dinner before 9.30 pm. But also I don’t want to eat something too “heavy” so I won’t be able to dance. And I really like the thought of a pale (or almost paleo) diet as I talked about in my last post.
So last time I were to go to ballet I made this wonderful, protein-packed and very filling snack.
So this is a great snack if you, like me, are very hungry between meals. Aaaand bonus: it’s no-carb, if you are one of those who try to avoid carbs.

Tuna Snack

Filling – no-carb – can be paleo
Serves 1
  • 1 can of tuna (Preferably in water), approx. 150 g.
  • 2 tbsp. peas (or corn or other kinds of vegetables)
  • 2 tbsp. yoghurt (sub with dairy free if you want it completely paleo)
  • 2 tbp. chopped herbs (cilantro, parsley etc.)
  • Lime juice
  • Salt and pepper
Drain the tuna. Mix the first 4 ingredients. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice. Enjoy!
Happy Easter!

  1. As a paleo person we don’t eat peas since it’s a legume :) Make your own mayo to sub for the yogurt.
