Vendégposzt – Sif Roemer – cleaneater Dániából
Mindig is szerettem külföldiekkel ismerkedni. Egyrészt, mert sosem tudhatod, hogy milyen tapasztalatokkal rendelkezik a másik, milyen ötleteket adhatsz te neki és hova visz közösen az utatok tovább. Sif-et az Instagramon keresztül ismertem meg. Kommentben kérdezett tőlem pár dolgot, majd e-mailre váltottunk és kiderült, hogy hamarosan Magyarországra érkezik magyar barátjával és szeretne pár tanácsot kérni. Szívesen segítettem neki, fordított esetben nekem is jól esne egy helyi tanácsa arról, hogyan oldjam meg a tiszta étkezést egy Közép-Európai országban.
Sifnek nagyon igényes és jól designolt fotói és receptjei vannak az Instagramon, kértem, hogy írja össze nekünk a kedvenceit. Közben többször találkoztunk, voltunk együtt enni, borozni hármasban Bogival. Ez a csaj egy igazi tündér és nagyon elhivatott! Amíg itt tartózkodott, magyarul is posztolt az instán. ❤ Ugyanakkor sok nehézségen is túl van, elmondja ő. Írásában olyan komoly témát boncolgat, ami kis hazánkban is aktuális. Vajon egészségesen élni, gondolkozni már egészségtelenné válik? Vagy mindezt csak a közösségi média, az arcunkba érkező tömérdek egészséges poszt és szakirodalom okozza? Mi befolyásol minket?
Olvassátok szeretettel! Betettem ide az angol verziót is, mert szeretném, ha Sif igazi gondolatai is megmaradnának az utókornak. De hamarosan olvashatjátok magyarul is.
Is “health” getting unhealthy?
Sometimes I wonder how focusing on being healthy could affect our health. On bodies, on the plate, in my surroundings… I constantly get motivation pictures, new recipe ideas and being asked to develop new diet plans for clients. I see people with six-packs on Facebook, Instagram and other social medias, all the time… And even though I eat clean, healthy, balanced which is based on many tests like DNA test, blood type test etc., I get the feeling of not doing it good enough all the time. So that’s why I ask the question: “Is the focus on health, unhealthy?” Are we focusing too much on other peoples success and lifestyle and forgetting the most important piece (ourselves) in the quest for a healthy body.
We have to know and feel ourselves again.
Only you can feel what you need, and only I can feel what I need.
We live in a world where everything tricks us into the opposite. In a world where there are a thousand different diets and restrictions, which we sometimes believe in, instead of using our intuition and own feeling.. “Am I really hungry?”, “does it fit my macros to make the protein-cake today?” “Is my cravings caused by dehydration?” …. All those questions force us to feel ourselves, listen to our bodies and what it needs.
What did people do before the boom of social medias and health books?!
I have to keep in mind that a bikini fitness athlete doesn’t look like a bikini fitness athlete all year long, and that the body tells me what it needs, when it needs it.
And I have to indulge myself when I feel I need it, not when I see everyone else are doing it, and when I do, I do it with stuff that make all my cells dance and laugh, instead of stuff that tricks my blood sugar, mood and weight.
I had a stroke 10 years ago, no one knows why, and maybe it was a sign from above. No matter what; it worked. I’m conscious and all about eating clean macros and not feelings, but it took some time.
My body deserves clean food, and I can feel and see that it makes it satisfied and healthy. I hope you will feel it too, when making some of my favorite recipes ❤
-I am Sif Roemer, 24,, recipe developer, dietician, lecture on healthy nutrition, out of illness, health junkie, working on making a baby in Budapest with my boyfriend Elöd, and has developed recipes for 4 books for Denmark’s leading health guru –
I served some of these desserts on my latest workshop with one of Denmark’s most well known health-experts, my former coworker.
I hope you will enjoy my recipes and really enjoy the feeling of self- indulgence ❤
1. Sooth your body with chocolate cream, straight from the blender
It’s extremely rich in vitamins and minerals for your body. Lots of healthy fat from the Avocado, c-vitamin from the lemon, magnesia from the banana and calcium, a-vitamin and a whole bunch of other good stuff!
- 1 ready avocado
- 10 soft dates
- 1 little banana
- 1 squeezed lemon
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla powder, not vanilla sugar.
- 1/4 örölt cinnamon
- 1 dl. 100% cocoa powder
- a little almond milk or coconut milk if the blender won’t work.
Store in fridge for 10-20 minutes and enjoy with or without cold coconutmilk/vanilla on top.
2. The avocado/chocolatemousse can be used as filling in paleo chocolate biscuits
Biscuit are made of :
- 20 gr sunflowerseed
- 20 gr hazelnut
- 5 gr pumpkinseed
- 20 gr almond
Use a miniblender and blend it a little bit, make sure it doesn’t turn out as flour, but still are chunky. Then mix it in a bowl with
- 10 gr. Fatreduced almondflour
- 10 gr coconutflour,
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 ½ teaspoon sweetener or honey or 5 soft dates.
- 4-5 tablespoon water until it sticks together and can be flattened out on baking paper. Adjust with more flour or water.(the less water the better, but it has to stick together)
Press the dough flat and use a glass to make 12 round pieces.. it will be tricky and sticky, bit it will be good when its baked in the oven. First 16 minutes at 160 degrees, and then turn them carefully around and bake for 4 minutes and then at 100 degrees for 6 minutes. Watch them at the end and take them out when they are near crispy, but not totally. They’ll become a bit more crispy when they cool out.
3. Did you know that you can make raw ice cream only by using frozen bananas and vanilla?
If you want a Raw icecream sandwich, a healthy one, the only minus is that you first have to cut two-three bananas into small pieces (2-4 cm pieces) and freeze. But when they are frozen, you have ice-cream two minutes after.
Blend those nuts you like the most, I used hazelnuts, almonds and cashews. You can also add oats. Blend it all until its like flour. And add soft dried apricots and/or soft dried dates until you have a mass that, first of all, you think is sweet enough, but also a mass that really sticks together. You should be able to shape the dough into rounds with your hands. If you want it more low-carb, then add sweetener and a bit water, instead of all the dried fruit 🙂
The ice cream:
- Freezed bananas
- Taste: chocolate (cocoapowder, vanilla) Vanilla (vanillapowder) Banana chocolatechunk (dark chocolate cracked into small pieces) Peanut/banana (a tablespoon peanutbutter) etc… Only the fantasy is the limit.
Put it in the blender and blend until smooth. Eat straight from the blender, or put it in between two biscuits and freeze (if too soft) or eat J
I dipped mine in raw chocolate with some leftovers from the first step of the dough (the blended nuts)
- 1 dl melted cocoa butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 2-4 tablespoons raw cocoa powder (how dark do you want the chocolate?)
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
4. Another treat, which I really love, is protein pancakes. Especially in the morning.. with protein-ice-cream in between
The protein-ice-cream is made of organic berries. Here I have used:
- Frozen blueberries, raspberries and a few frozen strawberries
- ½ scoop protein powder with chocolate flavour
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- Just a bit organic coconut milk. Just enough to make the blender work.
I have to say that my blender, the vitamix, is extremely powerful, so if you are insecure on your blenders skills with frozen berries and almost non fluid, then skip the recipe and save your blender ❤ , but if you know the blender can do the job, go for it! Its amazing. I mostly eat straight from the can.
5. Protein-pancakes without oats or protein-powder.. not the same taste as the ones with oats, but I like them.
- 100 gr. Cottage cheese (4 g szir éz csok fehérje)
- 100 gr. Egg white
- 50 gr. Almond milk
- 2-3 tbsp. almond or coconut flour
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- Cardamom if you like
Mix and make.. I love them with the protein-soft ice or with homemade raw caramel…
6. The gluten free, moist zucchini chocolate paleo cake You can glaze it with the chocolate cream or protein cream ❤
- 100 gr. shredded zucchini
- 80 gr. Unsweetened applesauce
- 270 gr. water
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp. flaxmeal (18g)
- 115 gr. vegetable or coconut oil
- 65 gr. cocoa powder
- 135 gr. coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 150 gr. xylitol or sugar of choice
- 1/16 tsp. pure stevia extract, or 2 extra tbsp. sugar
- Organic mini chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Whisk together the first 6 ingredients and let sit at least 5 minutes. (Tip: shred zucchini in a food processor for fine shreds.) Combine all other ingredients in a separate bowl, and stir very well. Pour wet into dry, stir until evenly mixed, then pour into the baking dish with parchment paper. Using a full sheet of parchment or wax paper, press down very firmly until the brownie batter evenly covers the pan. Bake 19-20 minutes, then pat down hard with a pancake spatula or another sheet of parchment. (If still undercooked, it’s fine. Just fridge overnight and they’ll firm up!) Let zucchini brownies sit 15 minutes before trying to cut into squares, and if at all possible wait until the next day to eat them. They will be twice as flavourful!
