A Guide to Winter Running

För att komma till inlägget på svenska, klicka här: En guide till vinterlöpning

Snow covered ground and temperatures below freezing. Can you still lace up your shoes and go for a run? Of course! We run about the same number of sessions per week and the same mileage no matter the season, and don’t even think twice about the weather before we head out. Or, that’s not quite true – we obviously think a lot about the weather so we dress appropriately, but we do so without much fuss and without any thoughts on… well, staying inside. But as we know many normally stick to gyms and treadmills in the winter, we thought we should put together our best tips to keep going and keep loving the sport, despite cold air and slippery ground. Or despite… we’d argue winter running is quite amazing. Go see for yourself!

Vegan Mac and Cheese

För recept på svenska, klicka här: Vegansk mac and cheese

Here’s a recipe that will (hopefully) blow your minds. Not just because it’s so darn delicious, but also because the traditional cheese has been replaced by a sauce made of potatoes, butternut squash and nutritional yeast (among other things). How is it even possible that you can make something this yummy with such simple ingredients?! We’ve shared before that we’re not big fans of vegan substitutes in general (soy mince excluded) and vegan cheese in particular, so the fact that this actually worked and turned out so scrumptious is almost too good to be true. But it’s not. Vegan mac and cheese, you guys. And not one bit complicated or time consuming either. Just go make it. Good luck!

Vegan Fudge

Our quest to veganize Christmas treats continues, and boy, is it both fun and fruitful. Last year’s chocolate truffles (with black beans hiding in the batter) got very popular (among you just as much as among ourselves) and now we’ve moved on to the queen of all things sweet and creamy: fudge. As the massive fans of oat cream as we’ve become, we thought we simply had to give oat cream based fudge a try. And can you believe that it worked so freaking well? We couldn’t, but after one too many sample pieces, it started to… sink in, so to speak.

Below, we’ve collected a bunch of blog posts from over the past three years that we thought could make for some cozy reading during the holidays, as well as all of our holiday themed recipes for easy inspiration and access. We’ll be clocking out from social media and all things screens in a couple of days for a good few weeks of legit Christmas break, and hope to spend our days wonderfully plan-free. The plan is not to plan, in other words, but just fuel up on family time, outdoors time and good food time.

From all of us to all of you: Happy Holidays!

Peppermint Chocolate Popcorn

The holiday season is here and what better way to kick it off than by having some crunchy, chocolatey and minty popcorn? This cute treat comes together nice and easy, and could perhaps even be a fun thing to whip up together as a family – provided an adult supervises the double boiler on the stove, that is. The end result is perfect to serve in a big bowl when sitting down on the couch on a Saturday night to watch a Christmas movie, for example, but also as part of a party spread. We just love the look of the crushed up candy cane and all the childhood memories that are being brought to life.

Vegan Swedish Lentil Meatballs

We have a widely popular recipe for Vegan Swedish Meatballs using soy mince, but we’re pretty excited about this alternative as well: same flavor, same level of yumminess – but the main ingredient is black lentils. Perfect for anyone preferring the whole food approach or those with a soy allergy, for example – or heck, for all of us enjoying a budget option!

Vegan Swedish Meatballs

För recept på svenska, klicka här: Veganska julköttbullar

No Christmas buffet spread without meatballs – at least not here in Sweden. Good thing it’s easy breezy to make a vegan version so 1. everyone can enjoy them and 2. we can celebrate Christmas in that sustainable fashion we like so much. Some allspice and a pinch of ground cloves  and the holiday feels are left, right and center – and don’t forget the batter is excellent to prepare in advance for a stress free celebration. You can even fry them up in advance too, and then just freeze them. The same goes for any leftovers, of course – just pop them in the freezer and enjoy again another day.

Pizza With Brussels Sprouts and Caramelized Red Onions

För recept på svenska, klicka här: Pizza med brysselkål och karamelliserad rödlök

Can one serve pizza as part of a holiday spread and not feel one bit embarrassed? Yes. Especially if it features Brussels sprouts, caramelized red onion and thyme, as all these doubtlessly bring on the Christmas vibes. We actually think a sort of “artisan” pizza cut into small slices make an excellent addition to just about any gathering in December – it’s beautiful, it’s simple to make and it’s a perfect opportunity to both highlight seasonal produce AND minimize food waste. Because honestly: what CAN’T go on pizza?

Spiced Gingerbread Loaf

För recept på svenska, klicka här: Mjuk pepparkaka

Gingerbread. A must in December, in our humble opinion, and one of the easiest treats to whip up, too – you get lots of holiday spirit for very little effort, one could say. What are some other musts? Well, you’re talking to Mr and Mrs Christmas so sit back, relax and listen to our long list. Saffron buns, of course. Gingersnaps, without a doubt. Chocolate truffles, definitely (and as ours use black beans in the batter, they technically count as vegetables). Fudge, thank you very much. And of course Brussels sprouts and saffron-spiked kale salads en masse, to balance things a bit.
