MY CHRISTMAS DIET – CRAZINESS?

Friday night cookings @home

Call me crazy.

It’s the time of the year when the most delicious desserts (saffron buns, gingerbread, christmas chocolates) are turning up to the market. And what do I decide to do?

Go on a diet for nearly the whole December – until the 22nd, when I fly back home. Why? Lately I’ve been feeling exhausted and tired, having difficulties with balanced eating, and probably lacking a thousand vitamins. It’s also nicer to treat oneself around Christmas not having eaten too much of all those goodies already.

So how will my December diet look like? 

First of all, no added sugar.

No white flour or dairy. This does’t include eggs.

No meat. This doesn’t include fish.

No alcohol.

What will I be eating then?

Fruits. Apples, bananas, pears, kiwis, mandarines, avocados, sharons..

Vegetables. Tomatoes, cucumbers, kale, onions..

Beets. Carrot, Sweet potato, yellow beets, red beets, parsnip, turnips..

Fish & Eggs

Berries

Rye Bread

Tofu

Almond milk

…To name a few.

 

Let’s see how this goes! I’ll keep you guys updated.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY – MID SKIRT MANIA

Coat/Hafnium Copenhagen, Boots & Skirt/Zara, Knit/Line Of Oslo, Bag/Saint Laurent

Afternoon!

One of the most popular items of the season has been the mid-length skirt, and my wardrobe doesn’t make an exception. It’s the one piece which can be combined nearly with anything: knits, festive tops, sneakers, ankle- or thigh high boots, turtlenecks…! Effortless and chic. For a shorty like me (165cm) it’s important to have the skirt well cut in order to avoid looking like a hobbit. A little slit in the front adds to the length nicely.

Yesterday was my first official day off since what feels like forever. We ended up touring boutiques and cafés with a girl friend, and finally ended up to Riche for meatballs. We even had a furry tail-wiggling friend with us! Stockholm seems to be rather dog friendly with it’s restaurants and bars. As it began raining while we were dining, us comfort-zoners decided to stay for drinks afterwards in order to wait it out. How I’ve missed careless being without the underlying stress – even just one day in between courses makes wonders. I’ve been taking a really long walk every evening now in order to maintain my physical and mental health. It felt a little bad missing it yesterday, but today is a new evening.

This weekend stands for the opening of plenty of Christmas markets around Stockholm, as well as the first Advent. Lots of fun things scheduled for Saturday and Sunday! Including some presents shopping, mulled wine, ginger bread, candles and meeting friends. My new course began today, and our first papers need be returned by Tuesday. But as Christmas is getting closer, having the holidays in mind undermines whatever stress. Tis the season!

Wishing all a good Friday,

Hertta
