Wauuu… early spring is all around and it means the citrus’ are at their best right now. Cannot wait to try the above Citrus cake for dessert from Cannelle et Vanille – and for main course grilled chicken stuffed with lemons and lots of garlic – tomorrow at a very relaxing dinner for our friends – YUMMI!
My latest on instagram – follow me “yummidesigns” here.
Green boosts, yes please: green colors in my sofa, more plants in the windows, palm leafs all over for Miami vipes – on a grey February day like this, it looks + feels soooo good. Click on the photo and get inspired!
The Shoreditch House got my attention (again!) this time for Valentines. We did not go, but oh my … a hotel with a “nap-eat-drink-card” is my kind of place (+ situated in East London – I have to go soon!) Click on the photo and enjoy!
No morning without Marianne’s espresso! My kind of café tiny and full of home made cakes, cookies, hot drinks, magazines for inspiration, mmm… Click on photo for details!
We just had the most cosy relaxing family day, it has been weeks since the last time we had a full day like this. We kept it simple. No fancy glamsy dishes. But to die for yummi fingerfoods: hotdogs and grilled toasts, and a greeeeat bottle of Rhône (and later a bit dancing with our yummi kids). The week is over and it was full of selling our house. STILL in progress! And soon we hope we can: Look forward to a new life in an apartment in the center of CPH. VALENTINES was a day all about joy + being together. Lovely. Get the mmm … oh so crisp grilled toast recipe here. Sit down smile share and ENJOY.
It’s all about Valentines … this week?! My days are fully packed with design for the second book this year – the studio is very busy … Plus everyday life all over plus trying to sell our lovely home. Read: +busy!
My daugther just asked me, how we should celebrate V-day? Well, we might celebrate it and perhaps all four of us. With sparkling bobles and a festive table … and a bit dancing on the table ;o) a LOVELY break.
Last post was all about health. Well, this one is a bit more sweet. Because one thing I always will be addicted to is chocolate and it makes me smile. That’s healthy too. And, I have to add: I go for the one perfect dark and bitter bite and not bars of semi-not-so-good-chocolate.
I always have, always will be a huge fan of the Brooklyn based Mast Brothers Chocolate – the (most cool) chocolate makers. They make the best chocolate bars (I think!) – perfect bitter/sweet plus some mmmm… the most delicate range of flavors and combinations from classic- to artistic ones. They have their own personal very cool style, tone and design. Their OWN chocolate factory! Details and stories all over that makes the chocolate even more tasteful and wanted. I like like like.

I cannot wait to get this year started. And this year is all about planning. To a certain healthy limit. I have just started on Anne Bech’s 5th Fit book and normally I drink and eat too many “no-no-goes” during my work on her book. It is like I become a 5-year-old everytime Anne writes “make-a-healthy-choice”, I go “no-no-no-way”. And I eat a ton of too-fatty-heavy-sugarcovered-carbs and forget all about healthy choices. This time it will be different. Walks. Training. Veggies. Proteins. But most importantly I have to plan. Quick solutions are always unhealthy ones to me and the result is a tired stressful me lying on the couch. I start with nr. 1: variety and green recipes. I use Sarah Britton’s site My New Roots or Green Kitchen Stories plus the danish Aarstiderne. Above will be added on my cookbook shelf in March 2015: Sarah Britton’s cookbook MY NEW ROOTS inspired plant-based recipes for every season – I can’t wait!
Next step in 2015: make some new breakfast rituals! I always make the same for breakfast. Skyr. Eggs. Sometimes a slice of rye with cheese. Boring. I use to be very creative and full of fruity choices and hey, now it’s gone! Now I’ve found new recipes and inspiration on all kinds of foodie blogs for daily starters full of berries and crunchy alternatives to eggs. Above breakfast with blueberries and quinoa granola I found at Green Kitchen Stories – find recipe here. And I also found a nutty delicious recipe on a crunchy glutenfree granola with quinua by Gwyneth Palthrow – find recipe here.
And then some easy steps. Soup days. Comfort food. Vitamin bombe. Great for freezing for later busy days. Money saver. Most kids love soup (red colored ones are often more popular at our house!). Above is Sarah Britton’s creamy broccoli and cashew soup – find it here.
And a last step is planning meatless mondays. And perhaps even one more day per week without meat?! Healthy choice. Learning the kids (plus adults!) more about vegetarian choices and perhaps new kinds of veggies. And those days will add even more crunch and variety to the day. And it might also be a money-saver?! I found the above salad with watermelon radish, oranges and goat cheese at Popsugar Food, get the recipe here. And for the kids I will seperate all veggies in small bowels and I actually think they will like watermelon radish. Sarah Britton has made so many yummi meatless mondays recipes – find them here.
I know, I have to really WANT this. Health + planning in a busy family is difficult. And I’m NOT a good planner when I’m busy. But without planning I cannot seem to get us tuned into a healthy lifestyle. And I made up my mind it is NOT hard. It is much more hard without! It is fun. Colorful. High energy. It is a challenge (which I like!). And it is very tasteful. I think we will enjoy it.
