gemmasfitnessjourney Instead of a shake post-workout I went for half of two different @oatein bars microwaved for warm melty goodness (I couldn't decide which flavour so had half of cookies and cream & half of chocolate peanut butter..about 18g protein in this) and full fat @fage_uk yoghurt (18g protein..so lots packed in this small bowl!!). Also mixed @finnberry.co bilberry powder in for some more nutritional benefit, @meridianfoods blood orange spread and @kuxxin granola #food #meridian #kuxxin #fage #yoghurt #oatein #proteinbar #proteinbars #ukfitfam #fitfamuk #girlgains #postworkout #granola #proteinflapjack #tasty #workout #kettlebells #finnberry 3d

missmarzipancom ️Blood Orange & Blackcurrant Granita️ Utterly delicious & truly refreshing, this frosty dessert does not include added sugar/sugar syrup & the super simple recipe for this granita cup (AKA the "You know nothing, Jon Snow Cone") can be found a few posts back and below

We've just returned home from #Valborg celebrations; the traditional lighting of the bonfires that signal a start to spring here in Sweden (and elsewhere in Europe too). For those who don't know, Valborg (aka Walpurgisnacht) falls on the eve of the feast day of Saint Walpurga, but as with many celebrations that now have Christian associations, this one apparently has pagan roots and in Germanicfolklore is also known as Hexennacht or "Witches' Night". So, there's a nice segway into the theme for this week's #FoodofThrones2016 challenge; magic (the sort of magic that exists within the #GoT World of Ice & Fire, of which there are many kinds... inc. creepy Melisandre's to which this capture pays homage). Feel free to check out the previous post for details, if you're interested in creating some themed food & having the chance to be featured in an ebook collaboration

Blood Orange & Black Currant Granita

Ingredients
500 ml blood orange and black currant juice (make your own using 35ml blackcurrant puree, 150 ml blood orange juice + 315 ml apple juice)
Cranberry powder

Directions
Pour juice into a large metal pan. Freeze until for around 3-4 hours then break it up using a fork. Continue freezing the granita for a further 2 hours. Spoon the granita into dessert glasses (I served mine in cups passed down to my hubby from his Swedish grandmother). Garnish with a dusting of cranberry powder

missmarzipancom Golden Vanilla & Chocolate Cupcakes with cranberry powder-dusted pink frosting- These delish blossom (see @missmarzipan_moments )swirl frosting-topped cupcakes were the slightly more sophisticated version of the #vegancupcakes I made for Louie & Lillian’s party. Those ones featured homemade cupcake topper flags with my Louie & Lillian “Minions” design in a strange Frankenstein-esque amalgamation with Lightning McQueen, Spiderman + Frozen’s Elsa & Anna (be warned people: this is what happens when you ask your kids what they would like ). Both of the cupcake recipes and the frosting were modified from ones found in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by @isachandra & @terryhope a book I recommend for anyone who likes baking/cupcakes... vegan or not

Posting this capture in honour of cherry blossom time! Yes- finally, from amidst the snow & sleet in balmy Stockholm, the blossoms have started to appear... so pretty!

If you’re interested in participating in Food of Thrones 2016 (creating a fun dish inspired by a #GoT related theme), remember to post your Week 1 submission by tomorrow. Week one's theme is “Lannister”. See my previous posts for more details & don’t forget to
include your GoT-related inspo
tag me @missmarzipancom
use the hashtag #FoodofThrones2016 so I know that you want to participate (& haven’t just randomly used the hashtag with no idea what I am doing) In the spirit of fun/different ways to feature, this week at least one Food of Thrones submission (and its creator) will receive a featurette on my blog (if the participants so wish)... otherwise, just create for the fun of it!
Update from Marzipan HQ️: Lillian had a bad dream the other night about a spider swinging over her bed. So tonight she is sleeping at the foot end of Louie’s bed surrounded by all her soft toys for extra comfort. She was quite teary as we were tucking her in. Through the door we overheard Louie explaining to her that “spiders don’t eat people... just insects, like flies and so on”. We heard her agreeing with him. Then they giggled for a bit. And now both of them are sleeping soundly😴. So sweet
Big ️ to all and happy weekend - Marisa xx

missmarzipancom ️Blood Orange & Blackcurrant Granita
An utterly delicious & truly refreshing treat, this version does not include added sugar/sugar syrup (yay!). Find the super simple recipe for this granita cup (AKA the️You know nothing, Jon Snow Cone️) at the end of this caption. Featuring "blood" orange & "black"currant "snow" (get it?), it also includes the optional use of cranberry powder for a touch of extra sourness, a nod to the taste Olly left in the mouths of viewers at the end of the last season. Darn you, Olly*! *shakes fist at Olly

If you'd like to join a little #GameofThrones virtual feast feature party (see previous posts for more deets), create something #GoT-inspired by Saturday, tag me and use the hashtag #FoodofThrones2016). Thank you to @erin_dreamingofalmonds, @caileighsspace, @plantfuelledchaos & @healthy_belly for their amazing contributions. Big love, y'all

This creation is obviously dedicated to everyone's favourite #GoT man in black; the subject of many a fan theory, whom we can only hope to see more of this season (heck, blood magic's gotta be good for something, amiright?) and find out the truth about his parentage (the ol' something + something = J theory is where I'd put my money right now). #JonSnow, of the blood of #HouseStark (and possibly another house too), may justice be served and your true destiny be fulfilled

Blood Orange & Black Currant Granita
Ingredients
500 ml blood orange and black currant juice (make your own using 35ml blackcurrant puree, 150 ml blood orange juice + 315 ml apple juice)
Cranberry powder

Directions
Pour juice into a large metal pan. Freeze until for around 3-4 hours then break it up using a fork. Continue freezing the granita for a further 2 hours. Spoon the granita into dessert glasses (I served mine in cups passed down to my hubby from his Swedish grandmother). Garnish with a dusting of cranberry powder (I used @finnberry.co)

Louie & Lillian are staying with their grandparents tonight... I miss them. We've just had a Skype session and it's only been a couple of hours. My kids don't suffer from separation anxiety, but it seems their mama does- lol

_gleeships_ I don't really know how to make edits but I like this edit and so I wanted to give @moncheleaf credit
I loved this scene and I watched glee the other day and it's the part where Rachel talks about her funeral and Finn crying but I just thought about it, he will never be at her funeral

missmarzipancom Golden Vanilla & Basic Chocolate Cupcakes with cranberry powder-dusted pink frosting
These were the slightly more sophisticated version of the #vegancupcakes I made for Louie and Lillian's party (those ones featured homemade cupcake toppers complete with Louie + Lillian "Minions", Lightning McQueen, Spiderman + Elsa & Anna from Frozen). Both cupcake recipes and the basic frosting can hardly be considered healthy, but I always try to cook/bake in an inclusive fashion (eg, even if just one of my guests eats gluten-free, I will try to have gluten-free treats available). So, beyond the fact that they're delicious🏻, I am glad I made these (sugar and all), as there was something special to await vegan hubby when he returned from the hospital the other day... and he was able to experience a bit of the festivity, albeit in a belated and quieter fashion. Both of the cupcake recipes and the frosting were only slightly modified from ones found in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by @isachandra & @terryhope, a book I recommend for anyone who likes baking/cupcakes... vegan or not

And I am contributing this capture to my homegirl Riikka's (@smoothie_swan) #leancleanmarch, because for me this month (my first month #postpartum at home with little Oliver) is all about taking it easy and being gentle on myself. Others may have goals of weight loss, running a half marathon or what-have-you, but what I really need is rest, relaxation & big ol' spoonfuls of self-nurture🏻. If that means turning to a recipe book to be able to bake cupcakes as fast as possible (rather than coming up with a whole new recipe from scratch), so be it. If it means accepting food favours from others (see previous post), so be it. There's enough going on around here right now without me heaping extra expectations on top of it all

In other news, we went for our first neighbourhood stroll as a family of five today 🏻🏼🏻 (+ my dad 🏻!). It feels surreal... but also very lovely
Big love to all
