My morning food diary

The first thing i do when i wake up, is boiling some water, starting my day of with a cup of warm lemon water. I like to drink this on an empty stomach , to start my day with something fresh. I like to think of this as the perfect “health” starter-habit. it’s cheap, simple and effective and it keeps me on track.


Lemons are mostly known for their high levels of Vitamin C and therefore most commonly known to prevent colds especially during autumn and winter season. It´s also an antioxidant, which means it helps cells to protect against the damage.Squeezing a lemon into your water might help to reduce wrinkles and make you look younger too!

And it can all be broken down to 2 simple ingridients:

  • water (hot)
  • lemon



What I love about oatmeal is that it’s really quick and easy to make, it is healthy and tasty, you can customize it with any toppings, and it keeps you full, and it provides me with lots of energy! I love a consistent morning routine.

The great thing about oatmeal is it’s packed with protein, fiber, and antioxidants. All good things that you want to start your day with! It’s also a filling, healthy breakfast that takes no time at all to make.

1 tbsp creamy peanutbutter

Handfull of blueberries

Sliced strawberries


Cook the oatmeal according to the package directions with salt, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Vegan on a bugdet, tips from a munchie vegan!

The key to eating vegan on a budget is simple: eat whole foods that are in season, cook at home when you can, take the time for a little bit of planning.

When we first went vegan, we did not have a big food bugdet. I did a lot of research to make shopping, cheaper and more health concious as possible. Living in Norway it is known among us locals that food is exspensive! So i made it my mission, to be healthy and buget friendly. I have made mistakes, and now i can share some of my tips and tricks to save time and money!

Plan meals in advance

If you go in to a shop with no plan, especially as a newbie vegan, you will be side tracked! Trust me on this, i made this mistake and bought way to much stuff ,that did not go togheter into a good meal! Pintrest is one of the best places to find recipes and make a grocery list.

Asian supermarkets

Asian shops have cheaper prices and more vegan friendly products. They have the key ingridients (rice, tofu, quinoa, vegtabels)

No vegan “super foods”

That’s where the myth that eating plant-based is expensive comes from, but you don’t need those things. Please none of these so called super foods, i mean if you have the cash then go ahead and get them all, but i made this mistake.

I bought all of these dried out berries and shakes and fake meats, it cost alot,and it is not always the tastiest things i have had. It can discourige you from the plant based lifestyle,and it truly can taste so good if you just get the right products.

Use the seasons

The price of a produce depense on the season, if berries are in season go nuts they are way cheaper and it taste so amazing when they are fresh, also if they grow in the erea where you life, go and pick them yourself! You can freeze what you don’t use right away to throw into smoothies, muffins or crumbles throughout the year, or make jamAutumn is the season of the roots you can make so many amazing things with patatoes, carrots , sweetpotato ect.

Good Morning smoothie

Our breakfast routine has pretty much been the same since we went vegan, but lately i have changed it up a little bit.

A smoothie or smoothie bowl can be a conveniet option if you are always on the go, for me it is a perfect option since i usually walk to work.

It is so easy to make, and it really gives you the boost that you need in the morning. Also if you have fruit or greens that are going bad, Throw it in the freezer and later pop it in the blender for a delicious smoothie , It can be very no waste friendly

bugdet friendly

Many people who think about going vegan or want to make more plant based meals are nervous about the prices of vegan food. People have the impression that the food bugdet will double, that is not true IF you do some research. Buy a couple of frozen berry and fruit mixes and some greens, and there you go, a great healthy breakfast.


200gr of fresh strawberries

50gr of blueberries (frozen optional)

2 cup of almond milk

1 medium sized mango

200gr of fresh pinapple

1 ripe banana

Blend these ingridients together and pour it into a mason jar or a bowl, top it of with some fresh berries and enjoy!

Rasberry Vegan Crumble Cake

What is better than cake? A vegan version in my opinion always taste just slightly better.

We have been cake fans for a long time, i thought that the second we went vegan and stared eating plant based we would never eat cake again, but i was ofcourse very wrong!

So here is my rasberry vegan crumble cake, you can use any berry that you would like, i just find that the rasberry gives a little contrast to the sweetnes of the crumble cake with that mild sour egde.


100g vegan butter, (room temperature)

100g sugar,

Drizzel of salt

1 / 2TS orange peel

1/2 TS vanilla
