Hello everyone! It’s hard to believe that June is almost over already. In only two days I’ll have my results, exciiiiting! June wasn’t really a special month to me, mostly because my boyfriend and sister still had there exams going on, and my best friend had her internship. I was faced with some kind of black hole – one that spontaneously (and always) pops up once I have finished all the work.
If you’d have told me a year ago that I would love sweet potato waffles today, I would have laughed really hard. In my opinion, potatoes are for baking, mashing or frying. Same goes for the sweeter version of regular potatoes. However, creating healthy alternatives for sweets and desserts brings me a lot of joy, that’s why I did some internet research on ‘healthy waffles’. After reading a few recipes I decided to create my own. I’ve used oatmeal as flour and a sweet potato instead of refined sugar.
Mixing the ingredients and creating a batter wasn’t the problem, but baking definitely was… The first waffle looked like a scrambled egg. For some reason I had decided that baking them for 2 minutes was long enough and besides, I was ready to taste my new creation 🙂 Making these waffles was a real case of trial-and-error. Anyway… Fortunately I love the outcome!
Food pictures have been my thing for the last year. I love playing around with food, trying out new healthy dishes or trying to ‘invent’ them myself. I’ve wanted to start a new series for quite some time, just because I love talking about food and a healthy lifestyle. In these series I will mostly write about my progress towards a healthier me. That includes food updates, workout updates and everything related to those two.
There are a few things you need to know before you read this post. For starters: I’m not a ‘calorie counter’. Some healthy foods are really high in calories but the way I see it, they are more nutritious than candy which is high in calories as well. Therefore I might systematically ignore remarks about avocados containing too much fat. Secondly, I don’t eat healthy all the time, because I’m human and there’s just too much delicious crap out there. Thirdly: pizza forever 🙂
Hello everyone! I’ve finally started to blog again and it feels goooood! There’s a change in the scenery, because I’ve updated the layout. I love minimalistic looks and I think this one fits the blog perfectly. In the meantime I’m designing a logo that looks just right – a bit of a struggle because I’m never quite satisfied with how it looks. I’ll keep you updated! Now in today’s post I’ve thought of 5 ways to make your blog stand out. You ready? 🙂
I MADE IT! I’ve finished (and passed) my internship and I’ve printed my thesis just today. I cannot describe how intense these four last months have been for me. However, I feel like I’ve learnt a lot about myself and this experience is definitely going to help me when I start the job hunt. This morning I finished my thesis. It was kind of hard to stop re-reading and decide that it’s “done”. Fingers crossed for great results.
It was literally pouring today. I had to leave our little flat to print my thesis and do some grocery shopping, and now I still feel soaked. But hey, it’s okay because when the lady at the print shop was done gluing my work together, I wrapped it all up in plastic bags and ran for the bus (I didn’t even mind the rain because what is rain when you’ve just almost finished your degree in social work?!). Wait, I take that back. Accidently jumping into a deep puddle wasn’t that pleasant. However I didn’t really care anymore because my hair stuck to my face and my mascara was down to my chin.
