Quinoa Berry Porridge

Happy Sunday loves! Another week has passed and I was able to tick-off everything I had on my to-do list until today – time to make one for the upcoming week. I’ve got a few lunch dates coming up this week with friends that I used to go to school with – cannot wait! Since knowing myself, and knowing that one of these dates might be switched to becoming a dinner and drinks event, I need to make sure that everything else is rightly scheduled and done in time.

With another weekend having passed, I wanted to share one of my new favourites in regards to breakfast. I love, love, love porridge – with them good old oats – and now started making it with quinoa. I always saw quinoa as a great grain for lunch or dinner, though never would have thought of eating it for breakfast/brunch. Here I am, and I could eat it daily. The principle method is easy – just as cooking quinoa (or rice) you can place ½ cup of quinoa, 1 cup of frozen berries and 1 cup of liquid in a pot – heat up the stove and let it sizzle on medium heat until no more liquids are left. I chose to say liquid as you can honestly make it with water (lowest kalorie form), milk (lactose free or not – as you wish and can eat) or nut milk. I’ve tried it in all ways, though usually go back to mixing ½ cup of almond milk with ½ cup of water. If you want to have your quinoa porridge a little sweeter and not so “nutty” in taste, you can add 1 tablespoon of agave syrup (or 1-2 tbs of sugar) and voila – you’ve got a perfect serving size (for one) to keep you full for hours.

With that, I wish you a lovely continuing Sunday! xo

Friday Feelings

Thank the heaven it’s Friday! The week goes by so, so fast! Wasn’t it Monday, like just two days ago? It surely feels like it – though I guess that is a good sign! I am so relieved however, that it is Friday again! The week has been full of meetings and appointments and with my head spinning with a thousand thoughts at night. I am officially ready to throw myself onto the couch tonight and relax! It will probably have to wait a little longer though, since I am in the making-off some plans for tonight with a friend. I was thinking going out to a bar and sipping on some drinks –  what do you think? I actually shot this photo whilst making some others of myself and my new leather jacket, so you can see a sneak-preview with this one I guess. I have no clue what I was trying to make, what pose it was supposed to be or what happened to my hair. I do quite like it though in the end – it’s got this Rock’n’Roll feeling to it, don’t you think? This photo has actually been on my Facebook page since Sunday – have you seen it already? I will be sharing the other pictures with you in the upcoming days, so stay tuned on that one!

I love Rock’n’Roll! (That sentenced just reminded me of Britney and her old songs.. can anyone relate?)It is the complete opposite in regards to style and lifestyle when looking at my Monday through Fridays at work. However I love adding some R’n’R into my style when I’m off duty and don’t have to turn up to meetings. I like calling it my “rebel”-side – and it will begin right this early evening, when I leave my office and jump home to change into my weekend clothes. With that, I wish you all a great friday and a great, great weekend to come! xo

TGIF – its finally friday night, meaning: it’s time to enjoy some hours at the bar with my friends. I love going for a couple of drinks on fridays, as I can actually sleep-in tomorow. I apologize for the not-so-good quality of the photos, but how cool is this? I just found all those effects on Photobooth on my mac again (after years), and started playing around haha! I think the last time I did these was at least 6-7 years ago.

Wish you all a great, great friday evening! Lots of love, happiness and joy!
