Sweet Ass Bro

NEED. GYM. NOW.

Heyhey! I know I sometime get those times where I just don’t blog at all, but this time I actually have a reason for it. Me and the whole family here managed to get ourselves a horrible fever and cough, so I have pretty much been sleeping all day and all night these last few days, feeling like shit. BUT, that is not what I want to focus on now, because I’m so much better and tomorrow I will finally get my ass over to the gym again for a wicked legworkout, and I’ll love every freakin rep!

When you’re so used to working out everyday and never missing more than two days in a row, 6 days is an eternity… I’ll be skipping into the gym tomorrow!

Otherwise I’ve been good, been to Ikea, to the movies (way to many times), awesome coffee date with a swedish girl and a german girl etc. The weeks pass so quickly it’s crazy!

GET ON THE SHROOMS BABY!

How fun is it getting a package in the mail filled with cool stuff?! The other day I got a few samples of different mushroom powders from Mikael, one of the ”funguys” at Four Sigma Foods. I’ve tried most of these before but it was ages ago and I absolutely love these products so it’s exciting getting the chance to try them again. I also wanted to let Sarah try them and see if these babies would suit Eco Eatery.

The only ones here that I have not yet tried are the chocolate shot and the hot mushroom chocolate, sounds pretty interesting hey? Can’t wait to see what that’s all about. I’ve written a bit about the mushrooms Shiitake, Cordyceps, Reishi, Lions mane and Chaga before on my old blog, but for those who haven’t read that, I’ll tell you a bit about these superfoods.

First of all, Four Sigma Foods has chosen to serve their products in powderform in these small portion bags which is pretty genious because it makes it so much easier than having to bring a whole package if you’re on the run. They have also added some herbs and stevia in some to improve the flavour.

The shiitake mushroom boosts your immune system, cleanses the body from within and supports the liver which results in glowing skin. It’s also cancer preventing.

Then we have the Chaga mushroom, the king of mushrooms. This one is also a very strong cancer fighting mushroom and is number one of all foods on the ORAC list (a list of foods containing most antioxidants). It’s pretty much an anti-everything – anti viral, anti cancer, anti inflammatory etc. It’s classified as an adaptogen which means it helps the body adapt to stress, like if your body is out of balance in some way.

Now to the queen of mushrooms, Reishi! This babe is also an adaptogen (katching!) so it balaces our bodies so if we’re stressed, it calms us down and if we’re exhausted, it brings energy. Pretty cool hey? Reishi can also prolong the delta sleep, which is the deepest and best sleep we have throughout the night. Also good for lowering blood pressure, regulating the hormonal system and lowering cortisol levels.

Cordyceps is the crazy mushroom that grows out of the brain of a certain caterpillar! But don’t you get freaked out, because scientists have found a way to grow these mushrooms in another way, otherwise it would have been super expensive. Anyways, this mushroom is perfect for us training freaks since it improves oxygen levels with 8-15 %, great for recovery, long lasting energy, sexual libido and metabolism. 

Lions mane is a mushroom that boosts our brains with better memory and concentration, protects the nervous system and can protect from deceases like alzheimers, parkinsons, dementia, depressions, anorexia etc. This because it contains a small protein called NGF which stands for neve growth factor. This is needed in our bodies to maintain a certain type of neurons. So there’s a thing called blood brain barrier which carries blood to the central nervous system. The problem is that NFG is too large to go through this membrane which leaves the brain without external supply. The substances in Lions mane can pass through this barrier though.

… AND SO I TURNED MY LIFE AROUND

Sorry for sucky quality but I just found the picture to the left waaaay back in my instagram and I was quite fascinated because I don’t even remember looking like that. Doesn’t feel like me. It’s not extreme, I know, but it’s my body´s way of showing an unhealthy lifestyle.

I remember that around that time I was pretty much the laziest person ever. I have always had interests that doesn’t include much moving around, like web design, photography, writing etc. And sports was never a favorite. In fact, I was always kind of hoping that I could somehow miss P.E in school, since I hated it so much, tried to book in dentist appointments and stuff like that at those hours hehe… 

I have also always been an ”all or nothing” person, which is great because it means that what I put my mind and soul into I do to 120 % and the outcome is pretty great. But it has also meant that things that don’t interest me, I put absolutely no effort into. And with food it’s always been ”all” over nothing, whenever I ate candy and food I liked I would eat until i felt sick or really full. I only ate what I liked which was all kinds of starchy processed stuff, breads, pasta, potatoes, pizza, pancakes as well as the ”typical” swedish foods like ready made meatballs and mash potatoes with a cream sauce. Lots and lots of additives, sugars and bad carbs that totally messed up my inside and outside without me giving it a second thought. Probably because I didn’t know there was something wrong with my lifestyle. I didn’t know the additives and the empty calories and the GMOs were making me a pain at home because I couldn’t handle my emotions and my PMS got worse, etc. I could drink litres of milk and macaronies with butter and ”aromat” (don’t know the english word) would be a dream dinner for me. 

I am so unbelievably happy that I have completely turned my life around and come such a long way both in how my body looks and feels but also in protecting my mind from things that was messing with my mood and my way of thinking. People who have come to me for help with what to eat and what to train wonder if they are being annoying asking me for help without me getting anything in return. NO WAY. Sharing my passion and helping others find their own paths into health and fitness is what I’m meant to do and to be asked for help is a reward in itself.

FIRST EVENT WITH ECO EATERY

Heya! So sorry it’s been so quiet on here, I’ve had heaps to do these last few days, especially with planning and co-hosting a girls night at Eco Hair last friday. I was a bit stressed out throughout the day since we had about a million things to get done and foods to prepare, but we managed and the night went great so I came home at like 10 pm (which is a bit past my bedtime hehe) and still full of energy and adrenalin. 

This event was a girls night at the hair salon that Sarah owns. A bunch of lovely ladies showed up to get their hair and makeup done by the awesome staff while enjoying and learning about the healthy, vegan and delicious dishes we had prepared for the event. We started the night off by welcoming the girls with a coldpressed juice and a probiotic shot. Next up was cheese and crackers – vegan nut cheese with home made vegan and gluten free crackers. That was a real hit, they loved it! With that, they got to enjoy a glass of organic, vegan and preservative free wine (if you’re gonna drink alcohol, this is definitely the best option). After that came mini rainbow sushi rolls with a clean (most other soy sauces have sugar and additives) soy sauce, then mexican corn cakes with homemade salsa, Sarah yummy detox soup with a crunchy piece of celery. For desert we had prepared some super cute Raw ball cones, which was three different types of raw balls, with a cone made out of dehydrated banana cream. How wicked?! Also a big hit. With that, some fruit skewers.

I had a great time even though I didn’t get a chance to talk to that many people since I was running around preparing and serving the food, but that was real fun and felt so great to be able to present to people what Eco Eatery will be serving and how amazing it will be!

VEGAN CHEESE AND CRACKERS?! THERE’S A WAY AROUND EVERY CRAVING BABY.

So this was a freakin’ amazing discovery that Sarah made in the kitchen today. Homemade vegan (!!!) cheese with herbs, creamy and absolutely guilt free. Honestly didn’t think it was possible but this result proved me wrong. So this is nutbased with garlic etc for flavour. Together with a couple homemade dehydrated crackers made from juicepulp, pretty wicked. We will definitely be serving this at the event on friday that I’m helping to host, the menu is delicious I must say.
