Well, shoot.. where on earth did time fly this past week? The Maldives? I have had this gorgeous recipe done and ready for you but then. Let’s just say that quite literally life happened and the actual post writing date continued to get pushed aside. So here I am, Monday morning with a candle right next to the computer and a cup of herbal chai on the other. It’s not that life stopped happening in some way (luckily) but it seems I found a space to get a few loving words out to you. Ahhh, I smile when I think of where this reaches you, are you at work? Still sleeping? On a big adventure somewhere? What ever is going on in your life, you are creating miracles as you go. Be aware of that grand ability that you have in every moment. Gosh, you ROCK!
Be the wind that takes this world by storm!
Fun & Fabulous Facts
The launch of the Nordic Superfood Mix on Sunday (ma b-day!!!!!) definitely holds a big part of me not writing this post until now. Geez, so many tings to be arranged and lovingly put together. Surprises to all that PRE-ORDERS, shipping calculation and final touches. You name it, I’m on it. In the mean time I have to keep myself nourished and what better way to do that then upping my intake of Nordic superberries (in my freezer, lovingly handpicked last season) plus a teaspoon of the Nordic Superfood Mix. Honestly, I bet those berries were just hanging out in the freezer waiting to be transformed into this antioxidant jam – so delicious I could have proposed. To myself.
The glorious part of Nordic Superberries is that the nordic light actually makes the level of antioxidants rise because of our long summer nights, ain’t that fantastic? Which ever berry you’ll end up using will of course be smack packed of antioxidants, the amazing workers neutralizing free radicals in your body and in doing so, fighting both inflammation, the sprouting of chronic diseases and calming an overall distressed body. Plus, remember health and beauty boosts travel in pair.
This recipe is a treat, jam packed with the goodies that makes you shine!
