I’m Essie!

Hello there, I’m Essie. I’m a blogger and a true ‘food aficionado’.

I’m terrible at cooking but refuse to give it up because I love exploring new trending recipes and rare fermentation techniques. I’m also one of those people who never really get to the point where workout becomes enjoyable, but I try…I really do.

For as long as I can remember my New Year’s resolution has been to pursue a healthier lifestyle and maybe loose a few pounds. Sounds familiar?

My blog content covers a range of subjects I’m passionate about; not just (failing) exercise schemes and personal health, but also travel, lifestyle and so much more. Whether I am sharing a workout program, a recipe or a personal experience from one of my trips, I hope I can inspire every single one of my readers to make a positive change.

I live in the outskirts of Oslo in Norway with my 5-year-old corgi Eddie.

There’s so much going on in my life, and now I feel is the right time for me to publish my own private blog – for you to learn from, laugh at and hopefully get inspired by.

Follow me in my everyday life

Welcome to my summer garden

You know those people, who eat organic and appear to be in complete balance with nature! You might be surprised, as I’ve become somewhat of a vegetal specialist. I found that hybrid foods are an ideal combi for me, mixing meat and plant-based proteins.

What’s good for me, is good for my dog!

To be honest I totally spoil my barking, drooling furry friend – Eddie. I want to make sure I feed him for him to stay fit and healthy, so my obsession with reading labels on everything I buy for myself also applies to what I buy for Eddie.

It's what's on the inside that counts

I’ve become increasingly aware of what I eat and drink, and to be honest increasingly worried about what is good for me and what is not. During Easter I had plenty of time making new experiments in my kitchen.

Slow-simmering in just a few minutes…

March took a turn I didn’t see coming. I quickly decided to self-quarantine in my apartment with Eddie as my only company.

No sweetheart, but lots of (healthy) sweets

Valentine’s Day is up and for me being single, it’s usually not the most enjoyable time of year. But then again maybe I could simply “shower the people I love with love".

Were the celebrations in December hard on you too?

I guess I am not the only one who felt an urge to start off 2020 by visiting my local fitness center more frequently. Are you also on a New Year’s quest to pursue a healthier lifestyle, then join my monthly blog and follow my struggles and wins.
