When the cravings sets in, and you can't help yourself a complete carb-load, this is what you can eat to not feel guilty over binging on something. It's vegan and has lots of nutrients, not only carbs.

What you need is:

-High quality vegan spagetti

-1 fist of frozen broccoli

-1 fist of frozen peas

-1 tomato, diced

-1/4 eggplant, diced

-3 mushrooms, sliced

-1 fist of fresh spinach

-1/4 to 1/2 chili (depending on how spicy you like)

-Opt. Pink himalayan salt / Alpine rock salt to taste


Boil the spagetti according to package. While it's boiling, start preparering the vegtables. When the spagetti is done, diain it and set aside. In the same pot, put some olive oil in and sauté all the vegtables (exept the spinach). Put the spagetti back into the por and stir in the spinach. (Opt. add some salt for taste). Ready to serve.

What up everyone. Do you want to burn fat? get stronger? then you'e come to the right place. To burn fat, you have to eat healthy and exercise, but what is healthy food? we all have different perceptions of what healthy food is, but actually, there is no "unhealthy food" exept the fact foods that are high in sodium, sugar and chemicals, eat clean. What does clean eating mean? It means you should focus on eating a lot of vegtables that are high in nutrition but low in energy in order to burn away that fat. Vegtables contain fibre that will make you feel full for a longer time, but don't forget to eat lean protein like chicken, fish, beans and legumes, it will help you build lean muscle mass. By making yourself a mealplan it will not only help you burn away that fat, but you will also notice a big difference in your energy level and you will feel happier as well. But what about carbs? carbs are your friend, but choose good carbs like sweet potatoes, brown rice and anything that does not contain white flour or anything white. One really important part is you have to stay hydrated by drinking a lot of water. If you want to boost your metabolism even more, add chili in every meal and drink a cup of green tea at the end of the day. What if I don't have time to exercise? you make time, no exuses. walk to work/school, take a few brakes during the day at work/school to do some simple exercises. During the weekends take long walks to get some air and don't forget to hit the gym or if you're not a gym person, swimming is a good option or just try to find an exercise that suites you.

Peace & love

What up everyone. When you go on a diet you focus on eating super duper healthy, after a few days or weeks you might go crazy and binge eat, which is NOT good. If you want to avoid that crazy part, eat a "cheat meal" once a week, not only does it prevent crazy binge eating, it will also increase metabolism, belive it or not, according to a lot of studies, eating "cheat meals" won't stop you from reaching your goals, you will only reach it faster. Be careful though, don't turn that "cheat meal" into a "cheat day". Have your "cheat meal" in moderation, don't fully binge out. Accepted "cheat meals" are; pizza, hamburgers, tacos, burritos and much more BUT as long as you make them yourself, because you still need that nutritional value. Just try to avoid fast food chains, their food has only a little too no nutritional value. Unexepted foods for a "cheat meal" are; sodas, candy and all that contains a lot of sugar. Chocolate on the other hand is OK if it's dark chocolate, because it contains antioxidants, but don't eat the whole chocolate bar, taking just two bites is enough.

What up everyone. So my mom recently got herself a gym-membership, to the gym I go to! She wanted me to give her a lot of advice so we went to the gym today, I was like her personal trainer haha. Well, she is a former gymnast and she competed in fitness when she was young, but that was a really long time ago. So I totally challenged my mom and she is not that strong anymore, but it looks like she wants me to train her every weekend now, since I gave a lot of good advice, and I think I might have "killed" my mom a bit heheh, well, it's only a sign I pushed her to the limit though. We first did cardio as a warmup and later we did a lot of strength. We did sholders and back strength as main focus, but I even gave a little advice on how to get stonger core muscles and leg & but muscles as well.

Peace & love

1. Processed meats, because it contains a high amount of sodium wich makes us store water weight and gain fat cells. These are usually sausages and coldcuts. Switch it up to unprocessed lean meat such as chicken. If you're a vegetarian or a vegan, skip all those processed substitutes, choose black beans, tofu and lentils instead.

2. Artificial sweeteners, because it trigger your body to produce more insulin, causing your body to store fat. Switch it to a natural sweetener such as honey, because it has a lot of health benefits as well, so it's a win-win situation. But stay away from Agave nectar, it may be natural but it has such a high fructose level that it's even more dangerous than refined sugar *mind blown!!!

3. White floured foods or anything white, such as white bread and white rice, it will only spike your blood sugar level and causing your body to store fat and you'll be hungry again 20min later. Instead, switch it to whole grain bread, brown rice and anything with a high fibre content, it will make you feel full for a longer time.

4. Milk and milk products such as cheese and yoghurt. Milk contains natural hormones which baby cows need to grow into big and strong cows. We aren't baby cows, our bodys aren't made to consume cow milk, in all types of forms. Switch it up to almond milk or oat milk instead (unsweetened), plant based yoghurt (unflavored & unsweetened, choose natural), goat cheese and vegan cheese is ok on cheat days.

5. Sports drinks, these actually contains a lot of sugar. Sports drinks are actually made for athletes who work out several hours a day so they won't lose musclemass. Sports drinks are advertised that they contain electrolytes, which they do, but as a mentioned, only for athletes. As a normal person who only work out 30min-1h a day, drinking this only causes fat gain. So switch to water, it keeps you hydrated and it cleanses your body from toxins, eat bananas as well, they contain potassium which our muscles need to prevent cramps.

These are so delicious you want to eat more of them, not only are they delicious but they're nutritious as well.

Since I'm not a fan of mesurements, just go with your feeling.

You need sweet potato, sea salt (flavored or plain) and some olive oil.

Start by preheating the oven to 120C (ca 250F). Slice up the sweet potatoes as thin as possible and in a single layer put them on a baking sheet. If you don't have the "ninja skills" with the knife, feel free to use a mandolin. Sprinkle some olive oil and some salt over it and put them in the oven for 2h but flip them half way for even cooking. Take them out once they are golden brown and crispy.

What up everyone. So now autumn is here, and it's definitely colder. For me on the other hand, it sucks. When it's a change of season, I feel sick, I get splitting headaches and i get super tired. So I try to eat a lot of hot and spicy food as well as drinking tons of hot green tea. When I go outside I feel the cold air and it's like a total iglo, it hurts so much when it's cold, no matter how much clothes I wear. But when winter comes, it's only slightly better, SLIGHTLY. So I effing suffer for five-six months. Well, what to do? just endure it, because I don't have any money to flee this effing cold country for six months, but on the other hand, who does?

Peace & love

What up everyone. We all have heard that collagen is good for our skin and it keeps us young looking, but it also is great for our body as well.

Collagen is a fibre protein which contains the amino acids; Glycine, proline, arginine, alanine and glutamic acid. 30% of our bodies protein contains of collagen and plays an important part for elastic skin, muscles, ligament and cartilage. Only 20% is determined by our genes and 80% are lifestyle choices when it comes to our ageing. Choices that are bad for our bodies collagen production are:

1. Too much sun, the sun is good for us in small doses to get some vitamin-D but tanning on the other hand, makes us age faster because it breaks down the collagen in our skin.

2. Smoking, breaks down our collagen as well.

3. Coffee/ caffeine, no news there.

4. Stress & lack of sleep.

5. Sugar

6. White flour.

7. Alcohol.


Our bodies produce collagen on their own but in order to boost it we need to eat it too.


Collagen+hyaluronic acid (HA)+zink+protein+copper+vitaminC+omega3= elastic skin, muscles, ligament and cartilage.


High in proteins:

- Chicken, beef, turkey, fish, game, bison, eggs, pinto beans, kidney beans, black beans, peanuts, chickpeas, pumpkinseeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.


High in vitamin-C:

- Strawberries, orange, grapefruit, kiwi, lemon, blackberries, blueberries, plums, figs and papaya.


High in vitamin-K:

- Red bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, beetroots, aubergine, cauliflower.


High in hyaluronic acid:

- Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, rice, corn, tofu, tempeh, soy sauce, konnyaku/shirataki noodles and chicken skin ( but if you dare, chicken feet, it is high in HA 😝).


A very unique quality HA has is that it can make gel out of water. Only one gram of HA can make gel out of over five litres of water. HA helps with synovial fluids around our ligaments because it is a water carrier for all our cells. So when you eat food that contains HA, drink lots of water.


​Peace & love
