Creamy fennel and pear soup that balances the stomach

I often make a creamy soup of fennel and pear during my cleanse or when I need a little more balance in my intestinal flora in general. This soup is surprisingly good, I do not know if it is the creamy texture or the flavor combination but it tastes like luxurious. Fennel is great when it comes to digestion and it is also anti-inflammatory. Like pears, together they make this soup a really good…

December first

Then came the first of December and some Christmas decorations have come up. This year there is a lot of focus on the green at home. Maybe because of our new interest in gardening or maybe because the natural green is at its most beautiful by itself. Natural and simple. It's Nando's first Christmas with us and he helps me with most things. We have decorated the entrance together. We got help from my friends at…

Let's talk about menstruation

In collaboration with comfydence.se Let's talk about menstrual panties, a fantastic environmental alternative to disposable protection. The feeling when you start with menstrual cramps is: why did I not start earlier? It's so smooth. Other benefits of Comfydence menstrual panties that I like are made with organic cotton closest to the body and all materials in the panty allow the skin to breathe. This means that the air circulates and inhibits bacterial growth. Another huge advantage is the environmental aspect; Let…

Torta rustica with black cabbage

It is well into November but we can still eat food from our own crops. Today I made a torta rustica with black cabbage. In principle, a torta rustica is a rustic pie and this particular type of filling can vary between, among other things, cabbage and zucchini or pumpkin. Becoming as self-sufficient as possible is a heavenly challenge and in just 6 months we managed to produce an incredible amount…

Fire cider, a wonderful health threat

Have you heard of Fire cider? A wonderful health threat with a lot of tears in it. Originally the recipe comes from the UK and there are as many varieties as there are families. But the basic idea is to mix ingredients that are anti-inflammatory and antibacterial with apple cider vinegar, then let it soak for 3-6 weeks before straining and mixing with honey. Like this on the edge of autumn when it starts to get colder and the cold…

Slow living and a lot of work, does it even go together?

Slow living does not mean that you always sit in a forest glade and breathe deeply. I like and often advocate a slow living philosophy, but that does not mean that I also have intense working days with a lot on the agenda. However, my attitude and attitude have changed. Today, for example, I had an unusual amount to deal with. 189 new pharmacies that will start selling our products with all the admin as…

Time to pick rosehips and make rosehips

Now is the perfect time to pick rosehips in the wild. Rosehips are a bit everywhere, by walking paths, by roads and forest ends. So incredibly bursting with vitamin c and beta carotene and thus perfect to pick now for the winter. I prefer to make rosehips on the rosehips I pick. It is an easy way to take advantage of them without requiring too much time or work on my part. If it is …
