I'm a müesli believer! I'm swiss, and I just eat it the traditional way:
pour some boiling water over oats ( I put Chia and ground almonds under them), let them soak it up while I peel a banana, apple, berries, whatever fruit, slice, add, put yogurt over it. done.
I don't like dried fruit except goji, so I sometimes add those, some honey, hazelnut butter, lemon juice, fresh ginger..whatever I feel like.

The förhöja kitchen island was on my list for my last apartment, but unfortunately it was sold out. Maybe it was luck, since now we have moved again and I have a bigger project for my kitchen and the little island would have no place in it..

Two years ago I had a regular working schedule. I used to get up at 04.30,shower, groom, get dressed, make a warm breakfast for me and my boyfriend, and then on to the lunches and hot tea jugs for the both of us. Then we ate together and by 06.20 we where out the door. I would make birchermüesli, or porridge, or toast for breakfast, and quinoa salads or pasta salads, or sandwiches for lunch. He would do the house cleaning twice a week so we where even. I hate cleaning. I really miss having a Good schedule. Now it's all over the place.

Day 3: Find 5 New Recipes for Breakfast The Cooking Cure Spring 2014

I found Maca powder in my local fairtrade shop. I'ts a peruvian root and it's very nutritious, and gives you a long lasting fullness. As far as I know Peruvians make a hot drink by mixing it with warm milk or water for breakfast. I heat up some soymilk, 3 teasp of powder, some spices (ginger, cinnamon, cardamome pods) and wisk it. When it's hot I strain it into my big mug. I'ts like a chai latte but creamier and it keeps you full for a long time. Believe me, I'm usually a big breakfast eater! (You might feel the need to sweeten, I don't)
Found out they sell it in health stores also, marketing it as "invigorating" and "aphrodisiac.." bof...

wow..I can't remember further back than Friday..
But I always have the same breakfasts on rotation: warm chia-birchermüsli with friut&yogurt, homemade seed bread with yogurt-butter and homemade jam or honey, hot soy milk with maca powder and spices, rice cakes with ricotta and honey, or soy milk porridge with fruits. And a pint of herb tea.
My all time favorite food (almost) is real milk&cereal. But I can't have real milk, nor refined sugar...

Why I'll Never Get Candy on Valentine's Day: Serbian Slava Kitchen Diary: Anne in South Carolina

luckily we have good insulated windows, since it gets very cold (-20 celsius) here. But it's still not pretty, since the window faces the neighbor's very busy garden/entrance and there is no curtain rack (or room to put one up, funny shaped wall with some sort of nook makes it impossible, and we would loose the use of the windowsill) I just taped a very pretty silk fabric directly on the window. Not very fancy.
Let's say generally a bed in front of a window is a very pretty solution if:
a)They are well insulated
b) the window faces a pretty view

Actually, I love paper straws, but would never use them for a party! What a waste..I use them for myself only, it's my special moment. The ones I have don't get soggy, but I don't let them sit in liquid for long either. I was very surprised to discover that mason jars for drinking is a thing in America, we use them only for jam and honey and canning, but I started to use them for my muesli sometimes, and I actually find it easier to clean and generally more hygenic than tupperware. I have never drunk from a mason jar yet.
Don't really like the idea.


What's the Deal with Cute Paper Straws?
1/18/14 02:10 PM

Mmm..so I will be' Washing my bedding on sunday, and deepcleaning. There is not much stuff on the ground and I can access the floor under the bed and nightstand without moving them. I bought a plant too, we have no closet (only a few IKEA "LACK" tables on top of eachother and a rack) but I could still look at it. What else..I love to throw things out, so I have always had an "outbox". I'm behind on the landingstrip, I want a pretty image to greet us when I get home, thinking of a washi-tape quote on the wall.

Cleaning is the worst. I am on my knees for hours to clean those floors, and the next day there are yellow spots and dustballs. The spots I can quick clean, bu the dust?!? WHERE DOES IT EVEN COME FROM!? I just vacuumed every millimeter of EVERYTHING 12 hours ago!! And we take our shoes off by the door!! And I brush my cat every day!! I want to cry and my back still hurts. My boyfriend is incredible, he can clean the entire house in very little time and effort, so when he is home that's what he does. I'm a bad, bad householder.

3. I just bought shelves today. They where on sale and VERY cheap. It's for my project. I'm going to put them up tomorrow (only day off!!) but I'm still pretending I'm on the cure. I just do it my way. Bought a potted plant instead of flowers. I have plenty boxes on the ground in my sewing room, and generally a mess. This is going to be good!!

wow so many comments..I already failed btw. the reasons:
-Timeshift. I live in Switzerland and i get the daily stuff far too late.
- I work very long hours friday and saturday, so I have to do it all on sunday. Thankfully the bf had already cleaned the floors and we already have all natural cleaners.
-I really don't like cut flowers, they die and then i have to get rid of them..an still, where am I supposed to find flowers on sunday in the dead of winter..on a graveyard? I have plants, but I doubt that counts..

oh let's get real, pantry space and surface is precious in the kitchen, and most of this is unnecessary. 1,6,7,8,and 10 might be useful. I make everything from bread to croissants and fresh jam in my small kitchen and I only own 4 "pans". a huge le Creuset (very new, christhmas gift) two frying pans ( one huge with rounded high edges, one tiny and no edges) and a small-ish sauce pan. I have a mortar and rarely use it, and my mum has blown up the kitchen 3 times with a pressure cooker. Nothing for busy mums with a lot of kids/going on or distracted people.

Ok I'll expose my problem here, maybe someone has suggestions, but I think it's hopeless.
We have separate toilet and shower rooms. They are minuscule. Literally step in, sit down. No sink in the toilet room (i call it the pipi-room by now) same in the shower room: you step in, turn to the mirror and tiny sink, one more small step and you are in the shower. It is all tiled with weird grainy tiles where NOTHING sticks to. I can't drill any holes since the tiles are very close one to another and I am not allowed tho make holes in them. I already decided to take out the shower room door and replace it with a Good courtain, so the sink is easier accessible from the pipi room and you don't have to touch two doorknobs with filthy hands, an hang small plants in the pipi room in front of the small window. There is no storage space whatsoever in both rooms, and I had to squeeze a litterbox in the pipi room. I usually go with candles and suction cap decorations, but I am clueless here since I have nowhere to put candles and the tiles refuse to make anything stick. Any ideas?
