Dagens plant food frulle på Stockholms Matmarknad. Varje vardag mellan 7.30-10.30. Välkomna.
You know when you have that last swim of the summer. You enjoy it and it feels great but it also feels kind of bitter sweet.
Like you know it won´t be the same tomorrow.
You can walk to the same spot look into the water and turn around because now the magcic is gone.
Summer has left the buliding. Like a lover has left you and you him.
All is like it should be you have new grounds pave and other paths to walk.
But it also feels a bit sad. Those feelings feelt will not to come again, you get reminded that life changes with the seasons and you have to follow along.
I always turn Miss. Melancholy when this happens. I want to turn around and throw in the towel no matter how good my life is.
To get out of this slump I do three things.
I meditate and practice yoga.
I stare into a wall and daydream.
I plan ahead and keep busy.
Meditation and yoga is a remedy that works well. Like brushing my teeth. It just does its thing.
Staring into the wall and daydreaming I try to do when by myself….. People don´t really get this part.
Plan ahead and stay busy was very easy this year. Things have finally fallen into place and I´m very busy.
Apart from my jobb this fall I`m booked to fly out on the 17th of september with Yogiakademin to Biarritz. I get to indulge in my passions yoga, food, be by the sea and also I get to bring someone I love with me.
This will be my vacation this year. I´ve worked too much and need to breath a bit.
At the moment I don´t feel happy. I feel kind of sad, tired and far away from myself.
That´s what happens when you focus on one thing and loose the rest. That´s what happens when you leave to much of your life in other peoples hands.
You should never have to prove yourself just be who you are.
Then in october and november I´m going to cover a few classes for AnneSophie/YogaKungsholmen when she is of to India.
A-S was my yoga student and went on to be a great theacher on her own. Funny how life turns out:)
I´m glad yoga is moving more into my life after a long absentness.
SOAP AND WATER GIRL
About beauty and all that shit. People think I eat cleaner than I do. My regime is my life.
I love my coffee, pizza, chocolate and I eat loads of it. I move around all the time but then when I rest I´ve learnt how to be still.
This is all I do. No fancy creams on my skin or luxurious workouts. I´m just soap, water and some simple stretches everyday.
Anyway as I always say let pictures speak more than my words
I´m sorry for my no blogging. I´ve been busy at work and the time at home has been sleep, shower, dress and back out into the world again.
I work at Stockholms Matmarknad as a raw food chef, but I like to call it plant food since I don´t follow the strict rules that raw food has.
Flavors and texture are more important than not heating food over 40°. I do use only plants when at the market but I eat and enjoy eating everything organic and made with love.
It´s also been really great weather so the little free time I´ve had I´ve been social beeing with my friends and family. Places I love in Stockholm are resturants such as Babett where they serve a amazing pizzas and brilliant natural wine. I love love this place.
At work I make plant food breakfasts as usual, psychadelic glasses of cashew yoghurt colored with red beets and Blue majik powder.
I also started to make lunches as take-away and one raw dish a day served in the market. I love the way raw food now has moved from just a health nut fly to a great and beautiful way of presenting and eating plants.
I also love that it´s served in a posh and beautiful setting where you also can get some of the best foods around made by other “traditional” chefs. No one is excluded and this is the future of food.
Last week and tomorrow our juices and lunches have been deliverd to Rachel ( Yoga Girl ) and her husband Dennis. I think this is the third time around that I make them healthy eats. See their blog where you can follow this yoga super star. She is healthy, honest and has the happiest of smiles.
There are so many projects bubbeling in my calander and I will share more this week. Untill then here are some of my favorite things.
Pictures sometimes speaks louder than words.
