Yummy in my tummy 

I’ve been such a housewife lately but this homemade granola turned out super delicious!

Take rolled oats, chopped walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes and mix together with some honey and water. Roast at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (stirring after 10) then let cool, mix in raisins and dried apricots. Eat with natural Greek or Turkish yogurt with a swirl of raspberry preserves and a topping of flaxseeds and fresh blueberries. More like dessert than breakfast!​

It was so freezing and rainy yesterday and today, it’s really depressing. I feel like just laying in bed all day and I have this disheartening feeling that I will never find a real job. Now that I have my work permit there’s also pressure to actually find something in my field. No excuses! Today’s been fully booked with babysitting though and also collected all the documents I will need to bring to the green card interview.

Yesterday morning I went to the Consulate General of Sweden on the Upper East Side to get a certified copy of my passport. Which I need to get my personal tax number from the IRS – not that exciting but pretty necessary… Then I did a heavy full body workout at my gym (I go to the Bed-Stuy YMCA), I was only going for arm day but it was so empty in there so I stayed and did legs + abs as well. What I don’t understand is when people just sit at the machines checking their phones. I was seriously waiting for my two favorite machines (that I saved for last) for probably 15 minutes because the people on them were checking Facebook and resting. But – so very Swedish of me – I didn’t even say anything, so who am I to speak. I’m in such a bad sugar phase (more than normal that is) so I rewarded myself with some cupcakes afterwards. Healthy as a nut, as we say in Sweden!
