towards the light

there was only darkness
compact and wet

Then one day;
there was a streak of light
Expanding, pushing the wet dirt aside
Growing towards the light
Stretching, towards new heights

I saw the light of the sky
I smelled the soul of the soil
touched I looked even closer

And then;
the sprout turned to me
and with a smile said:

"Thank you for allowing me to grow.
Nourish me and give me water
and your reward will be tenfold."

sprouting lettuce

Anyway, my plants are growing. The lettuce I planted on Monday is now starting to push it's way thru the soil towards the light and the spinach planted almost two weeks ago is also growing.


Yesterday I got a deliverance of stock food, like nuts, seeds and some algee. So I made an outstanding arame salad with garlic and lemon. It was really tasty and energizing. It looked like this:

This is the simple recipe:

arame salad with garlic and nori
arame algee (I used the bowl I ate from to measure)
juice from ½ lemon
grated peel from ½ lemon
1 avocado
1 tbsp nori flakes
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 clove garlic
olive oil
herb salt

arame salad with garlic and nori

Soak the arame algees in water for at least ten minutes. Slice the avocado. Squeeze the garlig and mix with the olive oil, herb salt, lemon juice and grated lemon peel. Rinse the arame algees and transfer to a bowl. Mix with the avocado and the olive oil mixture, add nori flakes and perhaps some more herb salt. top with sunflower seeds. Enjoy the delight in serenity, eat with sticks if desired.

You are life, life is a blessing - YOU are a blessing.

In love and health

a bite of today

How are you? I'm vibrating today. I just got back from a trip picking up some excellet stock foods. Hemp seeds, 10 kg of almonds, 10 kg of hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, raisins and much more, all organic and raw. Unfortunately the coconut oil I ordered wasn't delivered, so I'll just have to reorder that - soon.

raw and delicious inside the boxes
(and I always thought raw food was eating outside the box)

The true cause of the trip is kind of secret... so I cannot tell you - yet. I will when all is setteled. Thou I can tell you it's a great oppertunity for me to expand my knowledge and skills within the field of raw food as well as being a raw food advocate in Sweden.

I'm also very excited about a new project I'm launching with a marvellous raw friend ( We're starting a new community in real life. A raw food cooking class and gathering. It's still under construction thou the first date is set. October 25 th will be the day. Starting at 11 am in Vadstena. Exact location is not determined yet. I'll have to get back to you on that. I will be so much fun.

Yesterday was a beautiful and sunny day. I had lunch in the sunshine and was blessed with this grand dish. A very simple and still magnificent organic cabbage salad with avocado and fresh organic lima beans and a my recently posted apple/ginger dressing on top.

lunch salad, simple and grand

And for dinner I created the dish below for my family. It's a banana-tomato curry with carrot and lima beans on a bed of kale salad with coconut oil and avocado on the left. Right side of the plate is dominated by happy homegrown tomato slices (acctually we grow whole tomatoes and then slice them) with jerusalem artichoke/sunroot spiced with lemon and cinnamon and finally topped with some ginger/apple dressing.

"rice and curry!?"

Recently we've switched even more of our food from conventional to organic. And now most produce I eat is organic and that makes me feel really grateful. I feel so good about eating it and to serve my family healthy and healing food.

At the moment life seems extraordinary. I feel amazing. I feel love and gratitude. I feel divine. And remember; you are divine too.

In love and health

Delicious food and growing plants

Most welcome dear friend.

I trust this post finds you hale and healthy. This weekend I spend some time with my family. We went on our annual family reunion. We gather once a year and go by boat to and fro to Sassnitz, Germany from Trelleborg, Sweden. It was, as most years, a great trip and we always have a lot to talk about. I managed to get this beautiful dinner served (with a little help from myself). I got a really beautifly arranged salad and added my own curry sauce i brought along.

Sexistest woman 70 years and shrinking brains


You must take a look at this gorgeous woman, she absolutely awsome and belive it or not - 70 years young! What's her secret? Simpley put, positive attitude and fresh live vegan food! Isn't she something extra. This is Mimi Kirk:

For an interview with this extraordinary woman go to

Also today I read an interesting article on brain shrinkage at Natural News. It turns out that overweight people have 4% less brain tissue and obese people have a stunning 8% less brain tissue. The researchers stated that the brains of these groups showed a severe brain degeneration showing an increased ageing of 8 years among the overweight persons and a smashing 16 years among the obese persons. Bad diet and an increasing reliance on prosessed foods were cited as the primary cause of obesity.

Kim Evans, authour of the article, writes that "processed foods almost always contain man-made chemicals because they'd have an extremely limited shelf life without them. But chemicals in processed foods don't stop with just preservatives; they include chemicals for flavor and color, and even unlisted chemicals that fall under the artificial flavors label. Most processed foods also contain genetically altered materials these days, which just adds to the problem."

The authour also writes that "what is generally considered a healthy diet is comprised of lots of fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, and whole grains, and it contains far fewer chemicals. Ideally, it contains none."

For the full article go to

Eating a high raw organic diet have yet another proof to lean on. In my experience my mind got clearer and my thoughts and feelings have become more intense over these years I have been eating high raw. Also I have noticed foggyness in periods of less good eating. The challenge I took this summer - my 100 day ultimate health challenge - really made it clear to me what is good and useful for my body. Even thou I have struggled with severe emotional cleansing and disillusions about how I live my life (work and residence mostly) I know my brain is in much better shape at this point than just 3 month ago.

Thou I always wonder what came first; the chicken or the egg? Do persons with less brain tissue choose a bad diet or do they get less less brain tissue from their diet. I believe the article, thou the question is always interesting to ask, for it turns everything upside down. I bet you can find a lot of good places to use this question, even thou you know the answer it brings a new dimension to it.

1st greens planted!

Hello dear friend.

For you who have followed me on my last blog ( today was my first day after the Ultimate Health Challenge. I have felt great today, thank you. I have stayed about 99% raw with some spices as the exception (had raw tacos for dinner, it was absolutely delicious).

Yesterday I made room for my indoor plantation putting up some shelfes.

Today I have also planted my first round of greens - SPINACH!

I'm very exited to see the result in a few days when it's supposed to start growing. I plan on buying a strong light or at least find one in my garage. We might have a really strong light that's normally used outdoors when building. I few hour each night ought to do it. My partner just mentioned a bright idea; putting a flourocent lamp under every shelf - good light and low energy consumption. This is a very exciting project. I long to see the wall grow green. :) And I'm very happy Linda is involved and perhaps even more excited about it.

Today I also visited a newly found friend, a raw food fiend who lives not so far away from me. I was a delight to meet him and I thought we had very similar ideas for the future of local raw food in my living area.

I have to show you saomething else that I'm thrilled about. Our plum tree is really weighed down by it's fruit. And it's so delicious.

So today is a great day. For that I'm thankful.
I'm grateful for the engagement Linda shows for this project, for my funny kids, and my excellent food choises.
I love my family, myself and you.

In divine love and sound health
