Healthy brownies! Super delicious, vegan, paleo, grain free blender fudge brownies sweetened with dates. What more could you ask for?
Sunde brownies! Super lækre, veganske, korn frie, gluten frie brownies lavet i en blender og sødet med dadler. Hvad mere kan man ønske sig?
I know I’ve posted quite a lot of vegan stuff lately. Just as a disclaimer: I am not vegan (; I just feel so good when making something vegan. Lately I’ve been reading a lot about animal welfare and I really like the idea of veganism. Because gosh, most of the animals out there have horrible, horrible lives. I do however not plan on going completely vegan. But I definitely like to cut down on animal products – especially if the outcome is just as delicious and healthy as these lovely brownies.
Jeg har vikrlieg fået lavet en masse veganske retter på det sidste – bare lige for at få det på den sikre side: jeg er ikke veganer. Men jeg får det enormt godt med mig selv, når jeg laver noget vegansk. Det sidste stykke tid har jeg læst en masse om dyrevelfærd, og jeg snakkede med nogen veganere på Israel turen, og ej, hvor har dyrene bare ikke sjovt liv. Jeg bliver nok ikke veganer lige foreløbig, men skærer ned på animalske produkter – og det er så skønt, når det så endda smager godt og er super sundt, som disse brownies.
There isn’t much to say about the brownies other than they are aaaaaaamazing. So instead I thought I’d finally write a little about what I am doing now. You know having graduated high school, but not going to uni right away…
So if you just came for the brownies, please feel free to scroll to the bottom (;
I’ll try and do this short
The weird Danes
So no, I am not being unambitious and lazy taking a gap year. It is a very common thing to do in Denmark. I think maybe one in ten people go right to university – the rest take a year or two (or three) off. But what do we young Danes do for an entire year? Don’t worry – we don’t just sleep and watch Netflix (lol, I never watch Netflix, but whatever) (okay, maybe some do – but that’s like a veeeery small part).
Most people start out by getting their first “proper” full time job and experience the labour market. And there are so many different weird things to do – salesman, piccolo, archivist, sports coach, retail manager, runners, flower delivery boy etc. etc. And you learn so much from your first job – I speak from experience already.
And then comes the “real” fun – and there are so many things to chose from
Taking a language course in another country, moving to another country for a short amount of time, going packpacking the most amazing places, doing charity work in third world countries… And mine: going to a folk high school
What about me?
Right now I work as a substitute teacher at my own elementary- and middle school – and I love it! I love teaching and I love working with children. The other substitute teachers and teachers are amazing and so are the children. I’ve only been working for one month and a half and I already feel like I’ve learned so much. Admittedly, I am insanely tired when I get home – but it’s the good kind of tired (:
Not having any homework means I’ve got some more spare time – so I’ve started playing the piano again. And I plan on starting doing pilates. Oh, and I help two girls with math – yay!
The near future and folk high schools
Originally I planned on going to what we call a folk high school from January to June next year. But I love my job so much I’ve started to think of doing it later on.
But I am definitely going to a folk high school at some point. So what is this weird thing? Well, at folk high school is a very Danish thing. You don’t have it anywhere else and they are very hard to explain, because they are such a deep part of our culture, but I’ll try :)
– It is basically a kind of boarding school where you go for half a year.
– They are all situated in the countryside, because the purpose of the schools is to be there and not anywhere else.
– You take sports- and/or creative subjects (daaaaaaancing for half a year – woohoo!) and also some general subjects where you learn about the world (mandatory).
– You get to live together with around 60 other people your age, which 1) teaches you to live together with a lot of other people, and 2) hopefully give you some new friends
Anyway, the time a folk high school is said to be the time of your life (if you like to live together with other people, that is) and I can’t wait. I’ve been dreaming of going for the past 4 years.
Maybe I’ll take some time travelling too… We’ll see.
Well, I’ve got no idea. Or actually I’ve got too many ideas. But I will definitely go to uni – most likely University of Copenhagen. But if I’ll study landscape architecture, biology, neuroscience or something completely different I still don’t know. But it’s another thing I will have to figure out during my gap yeat.
Der er ikke så meget at sige om de her brownies, andet end de er fantastiske. Så i stedet vil jeg lige give en kort update på hvad jeg går og laver – i mit sabbatår.
Lige nu er jeg lærevikar på min gamle hovedskole, og det er jeg ubeskriveligt glad for. Det er virkelig sjovt og lærerrigt og alle – både lærere, vikarer og elever – er så søde. Planen er at jeg skal på højskole på et tidspunkt – men hvornår ved jeg ikke helt endnu, for jeg er blevet lidt forelsket i mit skønne job. Men på højskole, det skal jeg! Jeg har villet på højskole lige siden 9. (hvor jeg ikke fik lov at tage på efterskole), så NU er tiden. Og jep, der skal danses!
Aaaand, back to the brownies – enjoy!
Oh, and I topped them off with my raw vegan hot fudge sauce (which I am addicted to, no shame)
