I always try to start the day with a big glass of water as well as a cup of warm water with lemon juice, lemon slices, ginger slices and a little bit of raw honey. It is the perfect way to...

Super easy foodie DIY // Sprouting chia seeds

Hi lovelies, you really seemed to love my last little DIY post, so I thought I would share another one with you. This time it is a foodie one. I have been wanting to start sprouting for a while now and I even bought a clay pot for sprouting, but something about it just seemed a bit difficult and intimidating (silly I know), so I haven’t tried it yet. I have however been sprouting chia seeds for a while now (read all about chia seeds and their amazing benefits right here!) and it is just beyond easy! You really have to give a try! These babies only need 5 minutes of your time in total and in just 5-6 days you will...

Stop food waste // My best tips and tricks + a new app

Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with Netto/Fødevarebanken and their new app ‘MadSkalSpises’ designed to fight food waste. Hi lovelies. I have a bit of a different post for you today, but it is a subject that is very important to me and that I hope is important to you too. Food waste is a huge problem for our planet, approximately 1/3 of the all the food that is produced goes to waste, that is more than 1.3 billion tons of food!! Food that takes up enormous resources to not only produce, but also to discard afterwards. It is taking a toll on our already struggling planet and it just absurd that we waste such huge amounts of food, when there...

January challenge – detox, reset and rewire!

Happy New Year lovelies!! I hope that 2017 will bring you all the love, joy and fulfillment imaginable ❤︎ 2017 has already been off to a quite great start for me – at least health wise and professionally. I got up quite early and went for a run/powerwalk with my little sister, got a lot of work done on a big and super exciting project that I am working on (will share more soon) + I started on my ‘January: detox, reset and rewire’ challenge. I promised that I would share what my challenge is all about and it is quite simple really, for the past few months I have been really stressed, I have been sick multiple times and I have travelled...

Little things // Week 43

Hi lovelies! It is once again time for my weekly ‘Lovely little things’ series, where I share some of the things from the previous week that have somehow had an positive impact on me – however small or big these things might be. It is all about appreciating and enjoying the little things in life, to stop and take notice of the everyday things that brings joy and to give you guys a little bit of insight into the person who is behind A Million Miles. Let me start by saying that last week was probably the most boring week of my life, but I feel like it is even more important to appreciate the good things in times like that so the post is still...

Lovely little things // Little glimpses of my favorite things

¨ A cosy afternoon break ¨ Hi lovelies, are you ready for another post in my ‘Lovely little things’ series? It is all about appreciating and enjoying the little things in life, to stop and take notice of the everyday things that brings joy and to give you guys a little bit of insight into the person who is behind A Million Miles. I have been awful at keeping up with these posts, but I have now decided to make them a weekly thing where I each monday (sometimes tuesday) will share my favorite lovely little things from the week before, I hope you will enjoy it! This week I am sharing both some things that goes further back than...

Tropical popsicles with pineapple, passionfruit and coconut

Hi lovelies! I am finally back home from LA after a very long day of traveling (20+ hours, yikes!), I am so tired and a bit jet lagged, so I think I am just going to keep it short. I had the best trip and it was so amazing to finally be able to take some time off to completely relax and just have fun. When you are your own boss and work from home (or wherever I have wifi and my laptop), then it is so hard to properly take time off and I usually work everyday (weekends included) and often really late, so it felt good to finally get a full week off without doing any work. Oh and...

Delicious and protein-rich chickpea salad – perfect for mealprepping!

As some on you might have noticed from my snapchat (mokai_giraf) I am completely obsessed with trying new salad recipes at the moment! I have made so many new yummy salads that I cannot wait to share with you guys! Haha a lot of them contains feta (because feta is pretty much the best thing ever), buuut I am trying to make a lot of feta’less ones as well for those of you who prefer that and also just to keep myself from eating crazy amounts of feta all day everyday ;) One of the salads that does contain feta though is this delicious chickpea salad. I love that it is beyond easy to make, full of protein from the chickpeas + it...

Vanilla matcha lattes (no special equipment needed)

Vanilla matcha lattes are one of my absolute favorite things to drink – they are so incredibly delicious, energizing and good for you! I have been obsessed with matcha since last year when I first discovered it and I drink a cup of matcha tea almost everyday (simply mix matcha and how water) + I love to come up with new exciting ways to use matcha, but this one will always be one of my favorites! I first tried matcha lattes when I lived in LA last year and I have been hooked ever since, but it is only just recently that I started making them myself. I didn’t really have any of the equipment (milk steamer, milk frother etc.) and it just seemed...

Friday Favorites // Lovely little things

Hello lovelies! When I last week announced that I would mix it up and change Friday Favorites to a more personal and candid type of post, then I of course had a lot of cool stuff planned that I wanted to share with you, but then I got sick and so I don’t really have that much to share from this week + I totally missed the friday deadline ;) Haha I really am the worst blogger! I did manage to take a couple of snaps for you though and just because it isn’t exactly friday anymore then I thought it would be a shame not to share them anyways. Since I always have a hard time making the friday...

Problem skin be gone // How I have been fighting breakouts and acne-prone skin

Hello lovelies, it is finally time for one of the most requested posts I have ever gotten! I have mentioned my skin problems a couple of times and since I have gotten an overwhelming amount of request from you lovelies to write more about it and especially to share what I have done to make it better, so I thought it was about time that I wrote a full post on it. As a teenager I struggled with problem skin, but I went on the pill (a special brand to deal with acne) and while I was on it I seriously had the perfect skin (hence the picture above, haha this is my goal, this is what I want to get back to...

My little helpers

Links: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. Lately I have gotten so many questions about what blender, food processor and juicer I use, so I thought it was about time that I did a proper post on my indispensable little helpers in the kitchen. Since I am a student with a limited budget I do not have some expensive and fancy equipment, but I am actually really happy with my kitchen appliances and I think they are great if you – like myself – are still quite new to cooking and have a limited budget. Oh and let me just start out by saying that number 5 and 6 are unfortunately not in my possession, but these are two of...

Tips and tricks to staying healthy while living a busy life

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” – Benjamin Franklin This time last year was one of the most busy periods of my life and while I am fortunately not in that super stressful and time-strapped situation anymore, I would like to share some of the things that made it possible for me to keep up with my healthy lifestyle in a situation where I only had very limited time, energy and money to spend on my meals. If you keep nutritious and healthy food in the house then that is what you will eat. It is super important to take the time to go grocery shopping and fill your fridge and cupboards with healthy, nourishing food. When I am busy I prefer...
