Banana pancake

For me this is a perfect snack, breakfast or after workout meal that is healthy and full of protein and potassio. Also sometimes when I feel like something sweet but I know I should eat something healthy then this is so easy breezy to make, just mash a banana with a fork, add 2 eggs and fry it in a little bit of coconut oil. Just sprinkle some cinnamon on top as it is pretty sweet because of the banana flavour so no need to add any sugar.  Sometimes I match the pancake with a smoothie on the side to get some extra vitamines with frozen mixed berries and almondmilk.

Coconut Oil

This morning I started the day with a home made hair mask made of olive oil and coconut oil. The coconut oil I use is organic and cost around 8-12 euros depends where you buy it, but I think its worth buying an organic coconut oil as it has gone so popular so it is a lot of cheating with the oil if its real or just mixed out. There is a organic food shop called Veritas that sells it in Barcelona on several locations as its pretty popular.

I continued on with my facial once a week routine, a home made scrub made of squeezed lemon, sugar and appelcider vinegar to get rid of dead skin cells. Also the appelcider vinegar removes acne pretty good, so I use it as a prevention. It smells pretty strong, but the lemon makes up the smell as it is fresh.

To finish up I put on a facemask which I mix with honey, coconut oil and oliveoil. Sometimes I also do a second facemask with one egg white and lemon as it decreases wrinkles for real. I have to say that putting eggwhite on the face if you think your skin has some wrinkles is the best solution I have ever tried.

Results?

Smooth, shiny hair and super soft skin! Sometimes a home spa really makes your day

Cava Testing Codorniu

Last Friday we took the train one hour outside Barcelona to a cava testing with work. It was a beautiful place surrounded by nature and sound of birds. Arriving from Plaza Catalunya a Friday morning full of touristgroups and stress in metro it was really peaceful to arrive to this place. The village was called Sant Sadurni D’ anoia and it was a one hour train ride plus that we had to take a taxi 5 minutes to the cava place that was called Codorniu. I had tried this cava; Anna Codorniu before, it is possible to buy in the supermarket and I think I bought it in Sweden once.

The tour was really nice, walking in the underground in the cellars and also we went with a mini train around the area.

After the tour we went to have lunch together in one of those restaurants that is upon a hill in the middle of nowhere. It was a very beautiful view over the landscape and the lunch menu was amazingly good. I ordered grilled vegetables and got a artichoke on the side, homemade dark bread with tomato. Second plate was 4 diferrent grilled meats and a gratinated potato with cream and garlic and the dessert was homemade chocolate icecream. Everything was so tasty and you could really tell the icecream was homemade. We really had a perfect day and then we had a workparty in the evening when we came back, almost 400 people came so it was quite a lot of people but we could sit outside so it was perfect.

PS. I didnt drink 😉
