Which fruit would you cut open first? 🧐I’m SO HAPPY we found durian today!🤩 haven’t had it in a long time, this is a Monthong durian. If you try durian make sure it’s ripe (sweet) and not too ripe (gross) 👍🏼 Anyway, this was our fruit hall. Lots of bananas and papaya to freeze for smoothies and pineapple as oatmeal topping (new obsession). I have no idea what the purple shiny balls are, maybe passion fruit 😬

Creamy Smoked Paprika Pasta 🤤 Pasta recipes can be SO simple and are easy to adapt depending on preferences, just swop out gluten pasta for whatever pasta you like! This sauce is best blended in a high speed blender, if you don’t have a blender over 900W try to blend it for a long time until it comes out smooth and creamy👌🏼 Don’t forget to boil the cashew nuts for 5 minutes (makes it easier to blend and creamier sauce). This recipe is also in my e-book and recipe app ✨

1. Boil according to package
Sauce

As it has been ridiculously hot the last couple of days, this is what we have been doing 😂🤤 As I’m writing this, it is actually raining though hehe. If you follow along on my stories you know that we have now moved into a new place with an upgraded kitchen 🙌🏼 I’m still walking on clouds for this and can’t believe how I could stand the fact that we only had one stove, tiiiiiny fridge, super low benches and a small working space 😆 Anyhow, I got pro at how to cook simple 🤓
RECIPE (2 bowls)
- 6 frozen bananas chopped in pieces (make sure they are RIPE and sweet)
- 2 tsp green spirulina powder
- 1/3 cup plant milk (or more depending on how powerful your blender is)
HOW
Put all ingredients in a high speed blender or a food processor. Blend until smooth! You will have to stop several times to scrape the sides or to press down the bananas back to the bottom of your blender (see my youtube video about “how to make nice cream”)

New YouTube video! 🎥 Follow along and watch me eat epic vegan food in Bali 🤰🤤 So many of you message me about how the vegan food is in Bali, this video show you what places not to miss if you want to have some extra extra vegan food 😏This photo was taken just minutes before the whole ice cream melted to a mess, it’s kind of a heat wave here right now.. not a good idea to eat ice cream outside 🙄 Check out my youtube video to see where this place is! (I’m trying new vegan restaurants/cafés)

Who loves oatmeal?! If you don’t I’m pretty sure you haven’t cooked it right 🤭 I don’t blame you.. when we were kids we ate oatmeal cooked with water and salt, looked like glue and tasted nothing 😂(until my brilliant mom added sugar to it lol) This oatmeal certainly does not taste like nothing! And you know what? You don’t even need to bring out a pan for this!
I love making simple recipes for you to make, I know how busy we all are sometimes and just want to have that meal served 💁‍♀️
SUPER QUICK & YUM OATMEAL 👩🏻‍🍳
- 1/2-1 cup quick oats
- 1/2-1 cup plant milk (or hot water)
- 1 mashed banana (should be very ripe)
- Spices of choice (I like cinnamon & cardamom)
- Fresh fruit for topping or/and nut butter (I used pineapple, pitaya & tahini)
HOW
1. Throw everything except toppings into a bowl, give it a stir alt let sit while you are preparing your toppings (about 5 mins)
2. Prepare toppings, add on oatmeal, enjoy!
3. (Bonus tip: add in 1/2 tbsp ground flaxseeds for omega 3 boost)

Nourishing Poké Bowl 🌱 before I start talking about this: do not skip the sauce 🤤. I craved a poké bowl and since every poké bowl I’ve spotted here contain fish, I made my own 🤓 It came out damn good!! The nori sheet sprinkle gives a fishy flavor and iodine (important mineral for thyroids). The cucumber is wonderfully fresh and crunchy in contrast to the soft rice and marinated tofu 👌🏼 Btw, red cabbage and coriander are extremely healthy for you! If you don’t like raw cabbage, try squeeze some lime over it 😊 you’ll find detailed recipe in the app 📲(link in bio)
RECIPE (serves 2)
- 2 servings brown rice
SAUCE (combine in a bowl):
- 4 tbsp coconut milk, full fat
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp sambal olek (don’t skip)
TOFU:
Cook tofu in a pan with some tamari or soy sauce until heated
VEGGIES:
- Coriander
- Red cabbage
- Cucumber
- Avocado
- Nori sheet (chopped)

I don’t usually talk about this stuff but I feel I want to share because I’m not always thinking of food (well, almost🤰) I’m actually a really deep thinker and like to analyze things in life. Since traveling more and seeing other cultures and people I’ve got so many new perspectives on life. Before I would value money way over freedom (did I even know what freedom was?). My goals before were so different and money focused. Now I value freedom and health way over money. Don’t get me wrong, money is still nice and necessary to have. I’m so ever grateful that I took the step towards creating my own life. Me and Pontus talked about these thoughts on this morning walk 💭 by working from wherever we want, we have grown so much personally and mentally. I encourage you to have goals in life that matters to you ✨

My new 2 Day Detox Meal Plan is live! ✨Reboot meal plan maybe is a better name because that’s what it is. Detox (for me) is NOT about losing weight, it’s all about feeding my body with as much nutrients as possible and letting my body have a rest. After a few days with more unhealthy food than otherwise, it can be nice with a little nutrition boost 🌱 Since not everyone can download my app, I’ve made it available in PDF (link in highlight). It’s also live in my recipe app (link in bio). And yes this awesome and creamy sesame salad is in the meal plan! 😋

Nice cream.. long time no see. At least for me, having a hard time finding good ripe bananas atm😩 luckily other fruit and oats are available for my breakfasts 😍

For this I used (2 bowls):
- 6 frozen bananas
- 1/4 fresh pink pitaya fruit

I eat fruit in abundance 🤤 because I love it and it’s packed with fiber, vitamins & minerals 🌱 This was a plate for both me and Pontus as a midday snack before dinner. The drizzle on top is cultured coconut yogurt 👌🏼 But the sugar though? Fruit is healthy carbs, and don’t let anyone tell you that the sugar in fruit is the same as refined sugar (please read more about fruit sugar on my blog fivesec.co/blog)🤓. Fruit gives you energy, it is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber, it is good for your skin, super easy to digest on its own, it hydrates you and it tastes amazing. Because fruit digests super fast, it’s best eaten on its own on an empty stomach or 2-3 hours after a cooked meal (if you have a sensitive stomach) otherwise it may cause bloating.
The more I think about fruit, the more I realise that fruit is the most natural food you can eat, nature creates fresh juicy sweet fruit ready to eat without cooking it, isn’t that amazing? 🍉

2018, what a year ✨ One year ago we were also in Bali without knowing we would be here again the next year, feeling more free than ever. We had goals for 2018 and we crushed them! Pontus quit his full time job to join me and build this Fivesec Health community. I’m super grateful to be able to work with my passion every single day, and to spend all of my days with my other half @pont.us ❤️ I can’t wait for 2019 to start! It’s going to be the most exciting year so far, we have so much planned for us and for you 🤗 Do you have any goals for 2019? 🧐Please share, I love reading about other people’s goals! Btw this isn’t an ad I’m just reminding you to have your greens 🥬 👍🏼

Are my recipes healthy? YES. I know that my recipes can look unhealthy but that’s not the case. I make my food appealing. To eat a healthy meal does not mean it has to be a bowl of raw salad every time 🥗 and tbh it doesn’t fill me up unless there are grains or some kind of complex carbs in it. Instead, to make things more exciting, I often make my recipes with veggies and greens combined into the meal and not as a side on the plate/bowl 🤓 For example, the “Goddess Pasta” (the green pasta a few posts back) has hidden fresh raw kale in the pasta sauce! 🤭 I know some people here enjoy eating raw salads (including me) but I also know that some people are not (also including me), therefore I like developing these kind of recipes. I do still advocate eating greens (they are very important) but they don’t have to be present in every single meal when we already are focusing on eating whole plant foods.
How about the meal on this photo, what does it actually contain? 🧐
The main foods in this meal are sweet potato, black beans and cashew nuts (sauce), these make the meal high in - Vitamins: A, B, C and folate - Minerals: Calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc
- It’s rich in proteins, good fats and fiber
- Bonus: this is a really delicious meal with a vegan cheese sauce but without all of the bad cholesterol and casein that comes from cheese 😷.
RECIPE MEXICAN POTATOES (serves 2, the recipe is also in my recipe app)👩🏻‍🍳
- 500g Sweet potatoes or whatever potatoes you like (bake or steam)
- 1 can black beans, drained (heat up in a pan together with a splash of water and 1/2 tbsp cumin, 1 tsp smoked paprika, dashes of cayenne powder)
- Cherry tomatoes (chopped)
- 1/2 avocado (mashed)
- Vegan Cheese sauce (see app or e-book)
- Unsweetened coconut yogurt
- Fresh coriander
