Recipe: Gluten Free Buns

Hey everyboday!
I am a huge fan of bread! Bread is easy and you've got food in no time. Who doesn't 
love that? Well, a thing I don't really like about bread is gluten. Not a big fan of that.
Why you might ask? Because it causes bloating, mucus and it makes me tired. So,
yeah I really want to avoid it. But what do you do when you still love bread? Well,
you make bread. Just glutenfree. And these are yum!
So here is how you make them:
100g rice flour
50g buckwheat flour
50g millet flour
30g sesame seeds or sunflower seeds
30g chia seeds
A pinch of salt
10-15g fresh yeast
2 tbsp fiberHUSK
4 ½ lukewarm water

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the yeast with the water until it is
dissolved. Then add the yeast and water to the dry ingredients and stir the mixture
well (use a mixer to really mix it togeter and make them rise a bit more). Let the
mixture rest for 5 minutes to let the fuberHUSK work its magic. 
Form them into buns and place then on a baking sheet with some baking paper.
Use a spoon to make it easier. Then put then in the ovn at 200 degree Celsius for
35-40 minutes.

Benefits of Rhassoul 'Shampoo'

Hey everybody!
I haven't used shampoo since november 2016. Instead I have been using rhassoul clay.
And here I'll be sharing how and why. If you haven't seen it already, I made a post
about wanting a productfree beautyroutine and if you want to see what I use instead
of products then just click right here.

How do you use it? 
Take a couple of tablespoons of the clay and put it in a bowl. Then pour water so it
covers the clay. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and it is ready for use. 
There is no 'right' consistency - you can make it however thick or thin you want. I
like it to be in between. Neither too thick nor too thin
Wet your hair and then take some clay in your hands and distribute it through the
hair, massaging like you would with shampoo.
Let it sit for a couple of seconds, rinse it out and you are good to go!
Note: You will have a phase after starting to use rhassoul where you will have super
bad hairdays. It will almost become more oily and feel more dirty than before but
that is just because your hair and scalp have to get used to the clay and cleaning and
taking care of itself.

Important: The clay must not come in contact with metal (like spoons and such)
because if it does a cemical reaction will happen and many of the good qualities
of rhassoul will be neutralized. Use glass or plastic utensils to store and mix the clay. 

What are the benefits?
Cleaner hair - there are no chemicals and you will just have an overall feel
of cleaner hair.
No frizz - I have always had a problem with super frizzy hair and I have tried
oils and no sulfate shampoos but nothing has worked as good as rhassoul. It is
almost frizz-free which is awesome!
Softer hair - If you want the softest hair then this is what to use. My hair has
never been this soft (mostly also because I use apple cider vinegar as a conditioner)
Less oily - I have always had oily hair. It would be oily the day after I showered.
Not fun. But after using this for a couple of months my hair has gotten used to
cleaning itself and that has really helped with the oiliness!
No need for products - Since starting a productfree beautyroutine I have obviously
not used any hair products and I haven't had the need to. There is more structure
and it is easier to style. 
More volume - Soo much more volume!
Thicker - My hair feels so much thicker (and healthier) and that may be because
of the lack of chemicals and products since only using this clay. + As mentioned
before there is way more structure which makes it easier to works with.

Tip: Make a little bit more of the clay than just to use as shampoo and use the rest
as a face (and body) cleanser. Let it sit on your skin for a couple of minutes and
rinse it off while massaging your skin.

3 Minimalist Videos To Watch

Hello everybody!
Minimalism is not only about just having few things. You don't need to only own
20 items if you do not want to. But it is the idea of all the things that you own should
spark a joy and make you happy. You should only own the things you want.
I am fairly new to this lifestyle/journey which started by going bananas and
clearing out my clutter one evening and now I also really think about what I really
want before I buy things. But enough about me, if you are interested in a clearer
and lighter mind and surroundings then check out these amazing videos.
(and don't let the 'minimalism' word scare you. Minimalism is not just one way
but can be applied to your life the way you want it to so yes you can still have
stuff in your house/room)

Annie Tarasova's video is a perfect introduction to minimalism. She talks about
what it is, why some people are interested in the lifestyle and how you do it. And
overall just have some amazing thoughts one the subject. Definitely a must watch.

Madeleine Olivia has the perfect playlist for a minimalist beginner. I love how she is so
real with the struggle of getting rid of stuff. Here she shares 5 tips for any minimalist
beginners and they are life changing.
She is also a perfect example of a non-traditional minimalist where you only
have a very few items and everything is marble - because she used to be a shopaholic
and she still own a lot of things. But it is things she likes and things that makes her

Minimalism is not just about throwing stuff out but also stop buying (random) things
you do not need. It is all about mindful shopping and really considering before buying.
You will save so much money, space and you will learn what you really want and need.

I also just want to shoutout MuchelleB because her videos are amazing and her simplify
your life challenge is a life changer. It is perfect to declutter and organizing not only
your house/room but also your goals, feelings and priorities.
