This week ✗ 14

April 9, 2017

Things I’ve been up to this week:

slurp ramen joint

Slurp Ramen Joint

I stumpled upon Slurp Ramen Joint on Instagram looong before they even opened their restaurant. Then they got amazing reviews, so I had to try it out. Most of Copenhagen apparently thought the same thing, and since it’s a tiny place without table reservations, we had to wait for over an hour to be seated. But oh man, the shoyu ramen was incredible! We also got gyoza and pickled watermelon with tuna as starters. Absolutely worth it! The first ramen in Copenhagen to taste as good as the ones I had in Japan.


10 weeks at the gym

This week marked the tenth week at the gym! Around 3 months ago I decided to start working out. Partly because I wanted to get in shape and become stronger, partly because my boyfriend works out a lot, and motivated to start.
I’ve been aiming at 3 classes a week, which obviously didn’t happen every week, but even with insanely sore muscles, I dragged my ass to the gym. Mostly weights and strength. I can’t exactly see a difference in my body, but I feel it! For example, I started out being able to do 2 pushups in a row and now I can do 10. I also have so much more energy. It feels amazing!


Little things

Finished my internship with the highest grade in my exam, and a paid job there. Great that they liked my work and want mw to stay. Now I just have to write my final exam and somehow find time for this job, gym and a social life. That won’t be challenging at all…

Chocolate mousse ⎮ Only 2 ingredients ⎮ vegan

March 19, 2017

aquafaba chocolate mousse vegan

Do you know aquafaba? No right…. I’d never heard of it before until I saw a video on Instagram where the liquid from a can of chickpeas turned into what looked liked egg whites when whisked. What on earth I thought and Googled it. I learned that it’s called aquafaba and can be used as a vegan substitute and can be used for marengs and other goodies. I experimentet and ended up with this lovely chocolate mousse.

Here are 2 reasons why you should try this recipe:

  1. It’s super easy and you probably already have the ingredients in your cupboard
  2. Contains far fewer calories than ‘classic’ chocolate mousse with cream and eggs

Liquid from 1 can of chickpeas (a.k.a aquafaba)
100g dark chocolate (preferably 70% or over)

A little bit of sugar or sweetener – optional
The juice from ½ an orange – optional


  1. Melt the chocolate over a bain marie. Add the salt, orange juice and sugar if using
  2. Whisk the chickpea liquid or aquafaba into peaks. This takes time, so be patient
  3. Start by folding a few spoonfuls of the aquafaba into the chocolate. If you didn’t use orange juice, let the melted chocolate cool slightly
  4. Fold the chocolate mixture into the remaining aquafaba
  5. Pour the mousse into serving glasses and let set in the fridge for at least 1 hour

Easiest breakfast: Chia pudding

May 27, 2014

chia pudding

Today I have a recipe for you!! Something a little different, but I’ve just been loving my chia seed pudding for breakfast so much, that I wanted to share it with you all :)
Chia seeds have several health benefits, here are a few: They’re full of fiber! That’s important for the digestive system. They’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Hey, they’re good for ya! They’re full of protein, which means they’ll keep you feeling full for longer.


2½ tablespoons raw chia seeds
1½ dl. milk (I use cow milk, but any substitute will do)
½ teaspoon vanilla powder (You can also use cocoa powder or even chai to flavour it)


Mix all ingredients in a bowl and cover with a lid/plate. Let it sit in the fridge overnight or at least 2 hours. And that’s it!! So easy, anyone could make it ;)

The chia seeds absorb more than 12 times their own weight, so before you’ll know it you’ll have a lovely pudding. The seeds have no particular flavour, so I like to mix the pudding with fruits and berries. Here I used mashed raspberries and passionfruit! Yummyyyy!!
