Choko Popcorn // Chocolate Popcorn

”Chokolade? Ja tak! Popcorn? Ja tak! En kombination? Endnu mere JA TAK!” Sådan tænkte jeg, da jeg faldt over et chokolade-popcorn-billede på Instagram. Ihh, hvor så det godt og lækkert ud! Desværre var der ingen opskrift… – men altså, så opfinder man vel bare sin egen! En vellykket en af slagsen hvis jeg selv skulle sige det. Den søde og salte snack blev selvfølgelig nydt i selvskab med familien og DR’s dramaserie 1864 (Hvad synes i for resten om den? Jeg kan ikke rigtig finde ud af, hvad jeg selv synes..)

Ingredienser

  • 50g mørk chokolade 70%
  • 30g poppede popcorn (ca. 1/3 pose)
  • 1 spsk. frysetørrede hindbær

Fremgangsmåde: Smelt chokoladen over et vandbad. Tilsæt herefter popcornene, og bland godt, så chokoladen fordeles på alle popcornene. Beklæd et fad med bagepapir, og arranger chokolade popcornene deri – herefter pyntes med de frysetørrede hindbær. Stil fadet på køl i et par timer, og nyd så en lækker snack.

”Chocolate? Yes please! Popcorn? Yes please! A combination? YES PLEASE!” That was what I though when I came across a chocolate-popcorn-post on Instagram. It looked incredibly delicious! Unfortunately there was no recipe… Well then you make your own! And a pretty successful one, if I am to say it myself. I enjoyed the salty and sweet snack with my family – what a perfect way to end the weekend.

Ingredients:

  • 50g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 30g ”popped” popcorn (about 1/3 bag)
  • 1 tbsp. freeze-dried raspberries

How too: Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. Then add the popcorn, and mix gently so the chocolate is spread on all the popcorns. Cover a dish with a baking sheet, and arrange the chocolate popcorn in it. Then decorate with the freeze-dried raspberries. Leave the dish in the refrigerator for a few hours – and enjoy your snack!

“Sund” Nutella! // “healthy” Nutella!

Jeg er i himlen. Nutellahimlen (ja, der findes en nutellahimmel?). Jeg er faldet over adskillige lækre opskrifter på nettet – opskrifter, der fik mine tænder til at løbe i vand. I går fik jeg så endelig gjort de nødvendige indkøb og vupti! Pludselig stod jeg med et lækkert lille glas cremet Nutella – af min hjemmedigtede opskrift selvfølgelig. Hold da op, en succes. Jeg må indrømme, at jeg nok fik spist en lige lovlig stor portion – både på knækbrød, på skyren og direkte fra glasset(ups). Så er det jo bare ekstra bonus, at ernæringsindholdet er en del (se: meget!) forbedret i forhold til ”rigtig” Nutella.

Ingredienser (til et lille glas):

  • 100g stenfri dadler
  • 50g hasselnødder
  • 100g banan
  • 30g sukrin gold
  • 15g kakao
  • 15g proteinpulver med chokoladesmag (jeg brugte Caribbean Chocolate from Bodylab)

Fremgangsmåde: Rist hasselnødderne på en tør pande, indtil skallerne kan ”fnuldres” af (sådan nogen lunde i hvert fald). Blend nødderne til mel i en stavblende, og hæld melet over i en lille skål. Herefter blendes dadler til en ensartet masse, og nøddemelet tilsættes igen. Derefter tilsættes banan – og til sidst de tørre ingredienser. Husk at blende godt! Massen skal være ensartet.
Jeg puttede Nutellaen på et gammelt (rengjort) peanut butter glas og stillede det på køl – så skulle det nok kunne holde sig. Jeg får det jo nok alligevel spist inden for de næste par dage…

I am in heaven. Nutella heaven, actually (yes, it exists?). I have come across several delicious recipes on the Internet – recipes that have made my mouth water. Then yesterday I finally went to the mal to by the ingredients and poof! Suddenly I had a delicious little jar of creamy Nutella – homemade recipe of course. Omg, it was a success! I have got to admit that I ate quite a big portion that day – on crisp breads, on my quark, and directly from the jar (oops!). It is good that the nutrient content is improved a lot if you compare to ”real” nutella.

Ingredients (for a little jar):

  • 100g pitted dates
  • 50g hazelnuts
  • 100g banana
  • 30g sukrin gold (you can use other sweeteners)
  • 15g cocoa
  • 15g chocolate protein powder

How to: Roast the hazelnuts on a dry pan until the dark shells can be pealed off (or at least almost pealed off). Blend the roasted nuts into flour in a hand blender, and put the flour into a little bowl. Then blend the dates – and add the flour once again. Blend until you have a homogenous mixture. Then add the banana – and at last the dry ingredients. Remember to mix properly!
I keep my Nutalla in an old (cleaned) peanut butter jar in the fridge – then it should be able to keep fresh. I will probably eat it during the next few days anyway, lol.
Well.. Enjoy!

Post Leg day: Banana chocolate dessert!

Hey guys!

Do you know the feeling after a great leg workout? When walking and sitting suddenly becomes impossible? I LOVE that feeling. I LOVE the endorphins that fill up my body during the last reps. And I LOVE the pain, the shaking and the sweat.
My favorite exercise is the squat – today I did like 200 squats! (Back squats, front squats and sumo squats) And of course I also leg pressed (new PR: 125kg!), used the abductors, leg curled, and did a lot of lunges! Leg day is without drought my favorite day!
My post workout ”dessert” was this:

Base: 200g of Greek yoghurt 0% mixed with half a banana and 15g of chocolate protein powder. (I used Caribbean Chocolate from the Danish online shop Bodylab.)
Topping: The other half of the banana and a dark chocolate/coffee protein bar.

Which exercises do you guys do on leg day? And what do you eat as your post workout meals?

Banana Protein Ice Cream

Hi Guys!

Image

I have a confession to make. I might seem like one of those “I-always-eat-clean-and-never-cheat” fitness girls. I like to present my self like that but the truth is… I’m not. There is one thing I can (and will) NOT live without. My guilty pleasure. ICE CREAM! Ohh, how I love that delicious, creamy gift from God. And the variation of flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, raspberry, pistachio, coconut, brownie, cookie dough, peanut butter… (I could keep going forever!)
I have ALWAYS loved and will ALWAYS love ice cream. Back when I was little my father and I used to celebrate every single Friday with a nice portion of good quality ice cream. We still do – not every Friday though. Now it is mostly when we have to watch something important in the TV. (By important I mean Champions League matches).
So yeah, now you know. This does not change that I am 100% dedicated to the healthy lifestyle. I love how clean foods make my feel and I’m convinced that this will never change. A few days ago a reader asked me if I was ever afraid of “falling off the wagon.” The answer is “no, I’m not.” In fact, I have gotten pretty obsessed about finding better alternatives to all the unhealthy junk I like. And yes – I have actually found a way to eat ice cream without cheating on my diet. The recipe is very easy and you only need two ingredients!

Ingredients:
–       1 banana
–       20 g chocolate protein powder (I used Bodylab)
–       Toppings: I used blueberries and a few grapes

How to: Cut you banana into smaller pieces and put it in the freezer. Then wait (about 4 hours). Take your banana out and blend it with the protein powder – be patient! This might take a few minutes.
