First stop Copenhagen

IMG_3269 copyThe ride of my life has started and I’m so relieved :). I started Friday on my new life and first stop was Copenhagen. I was lucky to meet up with an amazing danish lady Ulla from my fitness center in the airport so time went fast. In Copenhagen I’m visiting my bonus father Knud and as always we’re having a really good time 🙂

IMG_3270 copySaturday we went shopping and I’d forgotten how amazing it is to shop in a place where there is lots of organic fruit and vegetables. I’m  in heaven and loving it 🙂

Later we went to Gladsaxe Hallen and saw The Danish Championship in in-door rowing where Knud’s granddaughter won her class. Normally I’m a sports ignorant but I like watching when somebody I know is participating and on top Astrid did an amazing job. I got so inspired but I know rowing is out of my reach because of my IMG_3290 copyback but I’m so going to get strong and start participating in military/obstacle races 🙂

Today – Monday – I had invited Knud on a very old restaurant called “Det Lille Apotek” (The small pharmacy) for a early celebration of his upcoming birthday. As a bonus I could check of a point on my 101 things to do when you survive list. The place is quiet famous in Copenhagen because of the amazing service and traditional danish food. We got a fish dish called “stjerneskud” (shooting star). It’s a steamed and a butter fried flounder filet served with asparagus, scrimps, caviar, slices of lemon and dill. We’re still full 😀

The weather is typical grey danish winter so it IMG_3317 copyrains and is windy but we take a walk every day and beside that I get a lot of needed rest and sleep. Beside that I’ve prepared my luggage for my trip so all is ready for my adventure 🙂

Healthy food has to look great and taste like heaven

These last months I’ve been going through a lot of recipes (all clean living and paleo), The thing that struck me was that a lot of the pictured recipes looked grey and dead. Wonder why it is like that. No wonder people stick to what they know.

I don’t eat food just because it’s healthy. For me food has to smell good, taste good and look appealing. If I want to use a new recipe it has to be better than what I usually cook.

When I cook it’s like a dance that I love where I use my senses. I smell the food. Like when I shop f.ex. strawberries, I never buy them if I can’t smell strawberry. I always taste so the food is tasty. If you forget to taste the food often is bland. It has to look good so I want to eat the meal. For me an appealing look is colourful and nicely arranged.

The meal was based on what I could find in the shop so it became: As appetizer green asparagus with serano, homemade paleo mayo on mixed salad. Then hot beetroot with feta, fresh spinach, walnuts, dried figs and a little mayo. For dessert it was chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries. The beverage was organic apple juice. All made as clean living and mostly paleo.

This was a good meal. Smelled good, looked good and tasted amazing.
