    Kombucha – The Magical drink from Mother earth

    Kombucha is something I drink almost every day, just a small glass in the middle of the day when I desire something sweet and energizing. I often go for the ginger flavoured one since It feels like a good extra kick with all its benefits. If I don’t do ginger I often choose by colour and prefer the pink ones and their nice fruity flavours, like pomegranate or cherry. So, what is Kombucha? Kombucha is a fermented, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly intended as a functional beverage for its supposed health benefits. Because it’s naturally fermented with a living colony of bacteria and yeast, Kombucha is…

    Must haves when vacaying with a Toddler

    So I’ve only been a mother for a little bit over a year but since I originally come from Sweden and my partner is American, we travel a lot and have done so ever since Clementine was four weeks old. We have been to both cold and warmer places but this list that I have made today is mostly for the warmer trip that you might go on. I will do some more list in future where I will focus on other kinds of information but I hope you will enjoy this one for now. All products are organic and with no BPA and they are the ones I choose…

    Gut healthy / Fermented Kimchi & Kale Bowl

    I have experienced some lack in appetite recently, due to stress and sleep deprivation. If I do research on the food that I’m going to eat and see how much good it will make I find it easier to get an appetite. I try to find healthy nutrient packed food that gives me the energy that I need to get through the day, and then I take the time to learn about the benefits of the item. Today I made one of Clementine’s favourite dishes; penne pasta with ‘cheese’ and nutritional yeast and boiled broccoli stems. I took away half of the broccoli and saved it for my detoxifying salad…

    How to cleanse your body As a lot of you might know, a healthy mind starts with a healthy gut. A lot of bad bacteria that affect our wellbeing comes from the gut and therefor through what we eat and drink. A cleansing of the colon and a smart diet can dramatically change how we feel physically and mentally. After becoming pregnant and giving birth and maybe most of all, after carrying my little bundle of joy around all day, my elasticity has really changed. I used to practise yoga almost every day and the days when I did not I used to do some stretches at home in the…

    5-HTP

    I wanted to start at the top of the mountain by recommending an amino acid called 5-Hydroxytryptophan, also called 5-HTP. It is a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor and is sold over the counter in the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, and in the United Kingdom as a dietary supplement.   What’s 5-HTP Used For? An amino acid, 5-HTP or 5-Hydroxytryptophan, helps create serotonin, a chemical in the brain. Low serotonin levels in humans can cause several health problems such as obesity, depression, headaches and muscular aches and pains. Many of these side effects can be helped and possibly eliminated if serotonin levels in the brain are elevated,…

    How to beat the blues

    The blues are there and so is the stress and sleep deprivation the alienation towards one’s new body. Sprinkle some extended family drama on that and I can almost promise you that you will experience some form of mild anxiety. The majority of mothers will experience some form of anxiety post their pregnancy and according to official numbers about 15% percent of new mothers will feel so bad that they qualify to be diagnosed with postnatal depression. I am well aware of the fact that we can’t always treat mental illness and that one might be in need of serious care and medication. But If you do experience the blues,…

    The first day

    I have since my pregnancy noticed that I’ve developed some form of social phobia, for me it doesn’t seem mild but when I’ve done my research on the topic I have realized that a lot of people suffer way more than I. Though, this is my problem and for me it’s a huge handicap in my everyday life. I guess it started before I got pregnant but it all escalated then and have just gotten worst. In some sense, it is mild since I don’t suffer from Agoraphobia which is an anxiety disorder characterized by symptoms of anxiety in situations where the person perceives their environment to be unsafe. This…

I will share parts of my life with you, a life where my daughter occupies the majority of my time but where there is also room…
