Scones

These scones are perfect as a part of a nice brunch or just something to eat for breakfast. They are very quick to make and you can use different types of flour. Today I used whole wheat flour and graham flour. Swedes like to eat their scones with butter, jam or cheese, but you can eat them however you want 🙂 Continue reading

Banana Pancakes and a Morning Powerwalk

Today I went for an early morning powerwalk. I made myself a juice before going out.

I always need something before any physical exercise. If it is a low intensity exercise I don’t need too much, but If I was going for a run in the morning I always need to eat something before.

Today a juice was enough. I used 2 blood oranges an 2 carrots.

It was very windy out today and as I was walking across the big bridge (Älvsborgsbron) here in Gothenburg it was extremely windy. However, I had a nice, winter view of the water 🙂

I used raspberry quark, blueberries and walnuts on my pancakes and it was delicious!
