Mamma’s gonna hook me up!

Hello beautiful ladies! Are you having a wonderful weekend so far? Today is the gay pride parade in Stockholm so I might go and check that out since today’s agenda is looking terribly empty as of right now.

But before that, a quick update –

Mom is going to the US in a couple of weeks to visit the relatives and has offered to try to bring me home some goodies if I give her a list. Happy days! So, in order not to miss anything absolutely fabulous, I’m asking for you foodie-experts advice. I’ve read about so many wonderful things on your blogs that are available in the US but, sadly, cannot be found here in La Súede. So, please give me suggestions of great foods or other things that I shoudl ask mom to stock up on. Here are a few things I have though of so far!

1. Peanut Butter Puffins

3. Peanut Butter & Co. PB

(What flavour should I get? I’m thinking White Chocolate Wonderful or Dark Chocolate Dreams)

What else? Give me suggestions!

Thanks hot mamas!

Erin, the peanut butter genius

I’m feeling a little bit uninspired today so I don’t really have much to blog about aside from food and some exercise. Hope you guys aren’t getting sick of my boring blogs. Sorry I haven’t been around to your blogs in a while, I’ll try to surf around a bit this evening!

Food


10:05am Breakfast. Two rice crackers with Tofutti vegan cream cheese and alfalfa sprouts, a bowl of two kiwis, some strawberries and topped with a little bit of musli mix for some crunch. One of the reasons why I so rarely eat musli/cornflakes is because I seem to get very bloated from it. I thought it might be different this time around but I feel like I’m having the same symptoms as I always do. I just don’t get what it is in the musli that makes me feel bloated.


1:40pm Lunch. I made my usual lunch minus a couple of components. Plain soy yoghurt with nothing in it and a wrap with Tofutti vegan cream cheese, some mustard, lettuce, cucumber and alfalfa. I love the crispiness of iceberg lettuce.


4:45pm Dinner. I was hungry for dinner rather early today. I made my usual salad (lettuce, tomato, red onion, one mushroom, cucumber) and mixed in a little bit of quinoa and topped it with yoghurt and balsamic vinegar. This held me over for about two seconds, so I made…


Dinner. A small bowl of organic brown rice and wakame noodles, mixed in some garlic, fresh basil and about 1/2 tbs of avocado oil. It was good but not as flavorful as I would have hoped.


6:45pm Dessert. When Erin heard of my carob covered rice crackers she instantly offered me her genius advice and suggested I slather these babies in some peanut butter (true Erin-style). So, I decided tonight was THE  night to do this, and let me tell you… it was so good it should be illegal! All credit to Erin! Oh snap, I just thought of an even better combo – WHY didn’t I put cinnamon on top of this!? This was my last carob covered rice cracker too… ah well, next time!

We all love Peanut Butter

I’m just like the rest of you, a big fan of one of the most wonderful, creamy and delicious things in the world. I’m talking about Peanut Butter, of course.  I just picked up two different brands of organic PB and I’ll be sharing my reviews with you in upcoming posts.
Yesterday I saw a post on For the Love of Peanut Butter about P.B Loco and was in awe over the different flavors available. PB with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough?! How did they know that peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie dough are two of my favorite flavors in the world?!

I try to stick to organic and vegan as much as possible. Almost all the peanut butters from P.B Loco have milk in them and other ingredients I’m not entirely sure what they are. Stuff like that scares me a little bit. That said, if I were to be overseas I can’t say I wouldn’t buy a jar as a special little treat for myself, just because I’m too curious not to try it.

There are so many PB brands out there, another brand I would like to try is Peanut Butter & Co. Peanut butter isn’t such a big thing in my country, when I was younger my friends thought I’d lost it when I told them about PB&J sandwhiches (I am half American half Swedish).

And let’s not forget PB2 which I would love to try! Why are these products and shops not available here? Whenever I go to the US one of the first things I always want to do is go to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. It’s my favorite thing to do. I could spend a week in Whole Foods. I love that store!
