I’m happy to share that I’m the Nylonista of the month in the latest issue of japanese Nylon. Go find it at you’re magazine store and I believe you find me on page 57… I can’t exactly understand what they written about me – but I do know that when they interviewed me I mainly talked about vegan health food and pilates ;-)
This organic crunchy quinoa chocolate bar is almost too good to be true. It does contain a little bit of cane sugar – which you guys know that I’m not very found of. But it’s okay.
I actually got it on the airport coming from a shoot in San Francisco and was craving chocolate so badly I bought it for almost 10 bucks at the fanciest of stores at the airport. Well, it was worth it for sure in that desperate moment.
But as I’ve said many times before – I do prefer coconut sugar, maple syrup or dates as a sweetener. Cane sugar/juice tends to get too sweet for me.
Overnight oats must be one of the easier ways to have a nutritious breakfast if you’re not a morning person or tend to be in a rush in the am.. This is a easy breezy recipe I like to make when I feel like a sweet morning with boosting antioxidants from the cacao.. If you want to make it creamier use a non dairy milk product instead of water!
Half a cup gluten free rolled oats
Half a cup filtered water
A dash of unsweetened almond milk
Half a banana
About one tbs raw cacao powder
(Half that, half this.. Well, I like to eat smaller meals, but if you’re a hungry person make everything into a whole..)
Mash the banana (the more ripe, the better!) and stir in the liquid, oats and cacao. Let it soak over night…
…and enjoy in the morning topped with cacao nibs (for extra chocolate feel and crunch) and flax seeds for healthy fiber!
The green superfood seed bar from Elemental is probably my all time favorite bar on the market!
Made with buckwheat sprouts, almonds, coconut, sunflower- and pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, sesame seeds, spirulina, cacao nibs and mulberries. All these superfoods binded together into a bar with help from cacao butter and lightly sweetened with raw honey.
Perfect afternoon snack or as a breakfast on the go. The time this photo was taken it was a typical “breakfast on the go”… You can see that on my morning puffy eyes ;-)
