Carrot and Raisin Salad with Horseradish Dressing

20141206195331(1)
Hi everyone!
I absolutely adore Christmas and in Scandi-land we start already on Sunday with lighting the first candle in our advent stake (there are 4 counting down to Christmas).
I will post a picture on Instagram when it’s up and running if you’re wondering what it looks like.
Swedish Christmas dinner is very much a meat and fish fest, but I’m planning to sneak in a few vegan dishes between my mums meatballs and my dads sill salad, and I think this carrot, raisin and horseradish salad will look and taste great with it all!

Happy Halloween everyone!
These coconut and cinnamon bites are so yummy!
It will take you minutes to blend and then they need to set in the fridge for about 40 minutes.
So simple and so quick!
I will also make them for Christmas as the cinnamon makes it a perfect yule treat!

Raw Sunshine Porridge

20141022212010(2)

We need some sunshine now the day starts before the Sun is up!
It’s pitch black when I get up to make a very noisy but healthy smoothie for the kids before school.
They also want gluten free flakes for breakfast, but now and then I make this raw, sweet, delicious and very filling porridge!
It comes with life affirming, yellow sunshine granules in the form of bee pollen!

“Wherever you go, whatever the weather, always bring your own sunshine”
