This week …

… I got a pretty good idea of how it must feel to be old. I have an inflamed sciatic and I was so immobile that I needed up to 5 minutes to get out of bed. I also had lots of time to think about how little I actually care for my body when it works. It’s the same old story, but what you’ve got, you don’t appreciate. I promise to become better.

I am also invited to several birthdays this weekend and will probably bring cake. This is not final, but what do you think of this and this?
What are your plans for the weekend? I wish you a wonderful few free days!


What I have treated myself to this week:

I am sure you have noticed by now that I am a huge Deliciously Ella Fan. Her recipes are simple, delicious and fun. Finally, I have treated myself to her second cookbook and as always did not regret the purchase. 


What I couldn’t get enough of this week:


Last week I picked elderflowers and prepared delicious elderflower juice and jelly. Since then, I drink elderflower lemonade non-stop and couldn’t feel happier. Maybe I’ll try this cocktail recipe during the weekend for a change. It looks so good!


Who inspired me this week:


Beautiful, beautiful Low Flow by Tove. So creative. I love it!


What my boyfriend got me excited with:

I am in the very lucky position that when I get home late and tired, my boyfriend has prepared dinner already. I appreciate this very much, especially as my boyfriend sometimes even cooks better than I do (damn). Anyways, he tried this new pizza recipe, where the crust is made of tuna and eggs only. Assuming, of course, that you actually like tuna, this is an amazing low-carb, gluten-free pizza variation. 


What I have listened to this week:

Are you a Podcast Fan already? As you know, I had loads of time this week, so I started listening to The Nutrition Diva and indulged in my kitchen nerdiness with The Splendid Table. If you love nutrition, cooking, and table rituals just as much as I do, then these two podcasts will make you very happy.
