daedal_lives And this was my breakfast yesterday for those of you who ard dying to know ;) Sorry for all the breakfast pics, I have other meals to post but haven't gotten to them yet ♡ this was gluten free quinoa toast with Vegusto cheese, tomato, hemp seeds and basil, orange juice and tea :) Vegusto has some amazing and flavorful vegan cheeses for those times you feel like splurging a bit! 8h
  •   leslieconn I can't wait until some of your European cheeses get imported here! Some day! 8h
  •   daedal_lives @compassionatewares they are amazing! I love how they have some real flavor to them and aren't super mild like most vegan cheese :) 8h
  •   daedal_lives @leslieconn haha, I used to be soo jealous of you guys cause you have Daiya and lots of other yummy vegan brands but we've gotten so much new stuff just the last year or so. Awesomeness ;) 8h
  •   leslieconn I see so much good stuff from that brand. I want the Wilmsburger cheese too!!! 8h
  •   daedal_lives @leslieconn I have some Wilmsburger cheese in my fridge just waiting for me to get to it! Yay :) 8h
  •   leslieconn 8h
  •   nshippy Girl you're always apologizing! No need! You're fabulous, and so are your pics and recipes!!! 2h

daedal_lives A late picture of my breakfast this morning, yesterday and today have been busy but in a little while I'm getting on the train for a weekend at my parents :) I started my day at around six this morning with overnight oats I prepared last night - oats, chia seeds, flaxseeds, sliced banana, unsweetened soy milk, salt, cinnamon and the last almond butter in the jar topped this morning with unsweetened applesauce, dried cranberries, mulberries and coconut shavings. I try to always start my day with a glass of water but usually don't add it to the picture - today it got the privilege to be there, next to my chai tea ;) have a great Friday guys ♡ 9h

daedal_lives Morning :) Another day and another breakfast! I had a few strawberries left in the fridge and figured I'd top some banana cinnamon oatmeal with them. I also added dried blueberries and almond butter (I loove almond butter) ♡ juice and tea on the side. Have a great Wednesday! 3d

daedal_lives And here's the edible stuff! Yes, I love lara bars. And nope, we don't have them here. I was snacking on the nut mix in the right corner on the plane home and the almond butter and mulberries were already opened while in the US. I sealed them well though ;) 3d

daedal_lives As some of you know I spent three weeks in the US this summer before I started working again. I had a good time, and picked up a few things to bring home (of course). Here's some of it... 3d

daedal_lives Morning guys! The strawberry season is almost over but I'm clinging on to it as much as I can! I had lots of them this morning with plain oatgurt, raw buckwheat crunch from @reneevoltaire almond butter and dried mulberries. Pomegranate tea on the side ♡ Hope you get a lovely day! 4d

daedal_lives Good morning guys and thank you for welcoming me back with such kind words ♡ Here's my breakfast before work this early Monday morning - banana buckwheat porridge (made last night and eaten cold today) topped with sliced nectarine, dried blueberries and fresh lemon balm. Orange juice and tea on the side. Have a wonderful day ♡ 5d

daedal_lives It's been pretty hot here in Sweden for a change and when it is, food doesn't really appeal to me in the same way. Instead of cooking I crave fruit and smoothies, but salads work as well. To make them more nutritional I try to add a grain of some kind (or in this case herb - quinoa) and lots of goodness such as grilled asparagus, red onion, fresh strawberries and cucumber. This time I served it with a homemade vinaigrette made out of strawberries, white balsamic vinegar, dried herbs, salt and pepper. If you're not as big of a fan of tangy as I am you can add oil as well. Just purée a few strawberries and the vinegar (and oil if you want) together and season to taste :) 5d

daedal_lives Since I haven't posted for so long I now have thousands of pictures (slightly exaggerating here) laying around I might get to eventually. But until then - here's today's Sunday breakfast! Green smoothie (banana, frozen mango, spinach, soy milk - I don't usually use soy milk but I couldn't resist the sale it was on - maca powder and dates), buckwheat crackers from @reneevoltaire (similar to rice cakes but... yeah... buckwheat) with mashed avocado (I had another one I was munching on while taking this picture) and tea ♡ 5d

daedal_lives Iam so very sorry for this looong hiatus guys, I feel awful about leaving you hanging! Life has just kinda caught up with me leaving me quite sad and not very inspired when it comes to food, and I have felt tons of pressure seeing followers leaving and everyone here posting better pictures of better looking dishes. I have still taken pictures, but not found anything interesting enough to post and ended up completely avoiding Instagram to not have to deal with it. You are all so lovely for caring though, I feel honored to have such amazing followers! ♡ I'm gonna try not to be so hard on myself and enjoy posting here again - you guys have been nothing but supportive! A massive thank you for the nice comments and for sticking with me - I'm back now :) 5d
  •   vegan_mama_manda Yay you're back!!!!! :) :) :) I was just thinking about you yesterday. Funny how there are so many people on IG I've never met, yet I feel like we are friends. Welcome back :D hope you enjoyed your trip to the US! 3d
  •   lauraisabellesims So glad you are back! It's funny how we worry so much about what others think and to be honest none of the things you worried about crossed my mind- I merely missed your happy posts, and the emotional ones...just your presence on instagram! So glad you are back 3d
  •   the_blonde_fairy Jag har saknat dig 3d
  •   strugglingdiary So happy to see you posting again.. FINALLY 3d
  •   erinbass Welcome back!! 3d
  •   simelavag Just to see a picture of you smiling it's enough! ♡ 3d

daedal_lives Excuse the bad quality of this picture guys, I'm using my tablet and the camera is not the best. But here's the first breakfast in the US this time around! I got a gluten free bread made with brown rice yesterday and had it toasted with peanut butter and organic strawberries this morning. Carrot juice and peach mango tea on the side ♡ today is a shopping day! Can't wait :D have a great wednesday! 1mon

daedal_lives Lunch yesterday was amazing in all its simplicity: mixed salad from a salad bar at a grocery store close-by! There's lettuce, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, a few kinds of mixed beans, millet, olives, cucumber, pico de gallo, red onion, corn and probably other veggies I don't remember adding ;) 2mon

daedal_lives Aww, I promised you pictures yesterday and didn't give you any! My parents kept me busier than I expected XD Maybe today? But first - a savory breakfast for a change! Store bought soy patties (called vegopuckar in Sweden) leftover from yesterday's dinner and lots of pickles on a warm , gluten free bun. Orange juice and tea on the side ♡ good morning and happy Monday! :) 2mon

daedal_lives Morning! Yesterday was busy, but today will be more relaxed and I can show you some pictures from the celebrations :) I am at my parents now, and for breakfast I enjoyed banana cardamom oatmeal topped with persimmon, flaxseeds, shredded coconut and lemon balm + unsweetened cashew milk (!!) after taking this picture. Tea on the side ♡ Have a wonderful Sunday! 2mon

daedal_lives Today is my brother's graduation! He now has a bachelor's degree (before his older sister! Humph!) and we started the celebration by eating breakfast together as a family + his girlfriend. I brought gluten free quinoa bread and vegan cheese to not feel left out ;) 2mon

daedal_lives My parents are here to celebrate my brother who graduates from the university tomorrow and all four of us + my brother's girlfriend have spent the day together.
This was the vegan burger at café de luxe here in Växjö that I had for lunch but without bread since they didn't know if the gluten free bread was vegan. They took a long time to figure out if the vegan burger was gluten free too - it was made in house but by a chef who had gone home. After a while they told me it might be made with quorn. I was like " if it is, it's not even vegetarian since quorn contains egg". They were dumb struck, checked again and came back saying it was probably made with chickpeas then. I was scared cutting into it but yes, it was made with chickpeas. It was alright. A bit dry and I didn't get a sauce (probably not vegan) but with ketchup it was better. The potatoes were good though!

  •   daedal_lives @sk8nrun96 yeah, love it. Not! What about people with food allergies! They should definitely be more informed about ingredients. I'll tell him congrats from you ;) 2mon

  •   kimjulie26 That makes me hungryyyyyyy 2mon
  •   abundantlifevegan So important to ask questions and educate others on the vegan lifestyle!! Good for you!! 2mon
  •   thefitveganginger @daedal_lives agreed! And thanks 2mon
  •   veganjourneytohbgm Jaa, åh okunskapen är stor i samhället. Jag avskyr att äta ute när folk på restauranger säger att de kan göra veganskt alternativ, men de vet inte vad det innebär... 2mon
  •   tiffanyspetservices Haha I always have a mini panic attack when that happens to me (restaurants not knowing if something is vegan or not) 2mon
  •   the_blonde_fairy En liknande sak hände mig! Jag hatar när människor inte har koll på vad vegetarianer och veganer äter. Jag var på en restaurang för några dagar sedan och beställde en vegetarisk pasta. Jag förklarade att jag var vegetarian när jag beställde och sa " jag är vegetarian så jag äter inte kött och fisk". Jag smakade på rätten och tyckte att den smakade konstigt. Jag frågade om det fanns kött i rätten och fick som svar "nej, bara strimlad skinka!!!!" 1mon

daedal_lives June 6th is here and it's a holiday in Sweden - it's our national day, but it's not widely celebrated. In fact; it just became a holiday a few short years ago. So, I'm not gonna do anything special because of it, though my parents are coming over for a visit and staying overnight so it's still a special day :) I started my morning with a smoothie made with bananas, frozen raspberries, dates, coconut milk and acai powder + hemp seeds on top (after this picture was taken). Mulberry pineapple tea on the side ♡ Have a fun Friday! 2mon

daedal_lives The fridge cleaning continues - a potato salad made with boiled, cold potatoes, dill, vegan mayo (soy free), celery, grapes, chopped onion, dijon mustard, a little oatgurt to make it less "heavy" and seasoning. Broccoli and borlotti beans on the side ♡ 2mon

daedal_lives #tbt - #throwbackthursday - to when I still was lucky enough to have this little guy in my life ♡ It's been less than two months since I lost him to cancer, and it's a big change since I spent half of my life with him by my side. My best friend, my cuddle buddy, my exercise motivator, my little cute anti-depressant... I miss him with all of my aching heart 2mon
