This is my new craze ❤ I use it for everything. Breakfast chia bowls, spread on bread or pancakes with berries. Yum.
If you allergic to nuts like me then this is an awesome option to all the nut butters out there. Also by soaking and drying the seeds first you get rid of all the phytonutrients that seeds, nuts and grains contain. It may take a little longer to prepare, but you get to enjoy the full spectrum of nutrients the seeds got to offer with no harm to your gut.
What you do to activate
Soak a pack of your seed of choice for 8 – 24 hours
Rinse the seeds and spread them thin on baking sheets
Dry for 5 – 8 hours on max 80 degrees
When I do this I soke and dry 3-4 types of seeds at the time so I don’t have to do it so often.
Making the butter
Blender with a s-blade
2 cups of your seed of choice
2-3 spoons of organic virgin coconutoil
Put items in blender. Blend for 2-3 min. DONE! Store in a reusable container♡ enjoy as is.
Did you know that a 2,5 cup of sunflower seeds contain about 85 % of your daily intake of vitamin E, and 70 % of your copper requirements? And that 100 grams of sesame seeds contains 97% of your needed calcium, 81 % of iron and 87% of what you need of magnesium in a day? What is not to love about that.
Next I will try to add some raw chocolate powder, a little vanilla and some stevia and see what happens 😱
Are you sooooo bored of wearing the same wintercap the whole winter? Ready for a change? I was yesterday. So I made this headband from a old cap I have had laying around for years. What is better than buying something new? It is to repurpose something that you already have 💚 The look is a little russian inspired, but hey you gotta still keep warm when it’s winter. And the russians sure knows how to do that! I love the look of the thick headband. But if you don’t you can easily make it in to a more narrow fit.
What you need
Needle and thread
Some ribbon or fabrics to match
Your head and a mirror ❤
1. First, cut the top of the cap. I only cut of about 8 cm. Then measure or fold it to make sure you cut it even on all sides.
2. Next you fold the edges towards the middle of the cap. Here you can choose the width of the head band (mine is 12,5 cm), also if you want the edges to meet in the middle. I left a gap of 2 cm. Then the headband will have more “shape” added in by beeing more narrow in the middle part. Fasten with pins and hand stitch and fold in rough edges. Use a cast over stitch which helps the material keep it stretch.
3. Choose the detailing for the front. I ended up with 2 layers of lace (to keep the finishing the same at both sides) wrinkle the headband together in the front, fasten with pins and hand stitch in the back. If you want a more toned down look you can repurpose the top of the cap you just cut off.
4. For the last detailing I added a silk ribbon that I fastened with a straight seam in the back.
Whatya think? Here is pictures of me not being able to casually look away and pretend like my picture is not being taken ❤
