Over Easter break, my family and I took a little trip across the Atlantic to our cozy little summer home in little Mystic Connecticut. A vacation and a break, from well everything, was very much needed and we were very spoiled with the weather. Some windy days, but lots of sunshine and perfect, warm, spring degrees. This post is coming a week after I actually got back home from the US, because there is just so much going on right now and it's only going to escalate from here. Which will most likely lead to a lack of posts for the next coming month and maybe a little more. But I really wanted to share some things from this laid back trip. And emphasise that there will be so many awesome things coming to Candid Camille this Summer! But more on that later, for now, here are so some pictures and a little note on the trip.
Here's a little sneak peek of some of the snacks that i brought with me for the flight over, as well as some rice cakes (of course). You really never know what you'll get on the flight and the quality and wholefulness of the food isn't exactly great so I always like to bring some snacks along in case I get hungry.
One thing I was incredibly excited for, was to get my hands on some of the goodies that unfortunately aren't vastly available in the DK as they are in the US. Such as kombucha and these Eating Evolved Coconut Butter Cups. Now bucha, is something that I have been a fan of for the past couple of years and I love how it makes me feel and what it does for my body. And Health-Ade Kombucha is a brand that I hadn't tried yet and I am officially obsessed! I love their products and their values! They truly focus on providing the best product for their customers - which is something I highly appreciate and think should be highlighted.
The same for the Eating Evolved Coconut Butter Cups, I actually looked in Whole Foods for the original flavor as a starter, but maybe not surprisingly, they were sold out. BUT, I ended up saving these goodies and bringing them home to DK and after finally trying them, I'm in love! They're amazing! Lasse and I have enjoyed them this past week, mainly as study motivation (works great by the way), and he loved them too. Finding clean products that aren't filled with added refined sugar or all sorts of other crap, can be really difficult, especially if you want it to be delicious and easy to bring with you on the go. Personally, I think Eating Evolved is a great option for a little post dinner snack or if you are craving something sweet!
Getting to enjoy these goodies in sunshine is also pretty darn amazing!
A little example of a bowl that I had almost every single day for lunch... The veggies and proteins used, varied depending on left overs from the night before and what my body was craving that day. It was actually a great little reminder, that I need to prioritise spending a little more time and really making a good wholesome lunch. Because it makes me feel great, keeps me from constantly wanted to snack and it just makes me happy. So I really hope to really get better and making a solid lunch for myself on a daily basis. This is the only picture I actually have of my lunches, because the rest have been posted on my Instastories - so check those out to get a more daily look of what I eat (if you're interested ;) )
This bowl was a bunch of spinach at the bottom, left over pesto salmon, avocado, hummus, olive tapenade, leftover beets and a little sweet potato, and finally brussel sprouts.
There was also some down time to make some of the delicious toasted coconut bliss balls! It was a great opportunity to get them family tested and luckily they were a success. There was almost an argument for who would get the last one. So if you are looking for a great snack that can help kill that sugar craving and give your body some goods then you should give them a try. The recipe is in the highlighted link above.
