Dinolicious Food | Finland based Healthy Recipe Blog
After doing a research of Paleo and all the recipe sites, Mirka wanted to do something fun with it... Something different. She wanted a page with not just recipes, but with a lifestyle. Dino is still very young, but it’s growing fast and hopefully it will help people on their paths of feeling good. Dinolicious is not just a recipe page, it’s a lifestyle.

Place into the oven for approximately 15minutes. Enjoy!
Unlike a lot of people think, Paleo is not a meat - carnivore diet. The whole idea with Paleo lifestyle is about eating a ton of good vegetables with some quality, grass-fed, wild-caught meat & fish. It's about eating real, unprocessed food. Good quality fats, seeds, nuts, berries and fruits. Herbs and spices.
Why I hate the words Paleo diet? For me, Paleo is not just a diet to tell you what to eat and when to eat. For me Paleo is a lifestyle. When you eat right, you have a ton of extra energy, which automatically makes you want to move more. Before I started eating Paleo I had no idea how much my wheat - sugar diet was taking out of me. I thought it was normal to feel tired in the morning, to wan't to take a nap after lunch and to feel exhausted after one workout. Turns out, I was wrong, very wrong. When you start eating Paleo, when you start eating clean, natural foods - you feel more energised. I highly recommend trying Paleo. It might sound hard at the beginning, but it really isn't. And you will quickly learn how good eating clean is for you.
The course will be both in Finnish and in English.
And the same in Finnish:
Viime viikolla postasimme blogiimme otsikolla: Älä aloita Uutta Vuotta 2019 terveellisellä elämäntavalla. Miksi?
Jos aloitamme olemalla liian ankaria itseämme kohtaan, epäonnistumme tavoitteissamme yhtä nopeasti, kuin aloitimme. Mitä jos tänä vuonna olisimme hieman kohtuullisempia itseämme kohtaan. Mitä jos antaisimme aikaa itsellemme voida paremmin. Sen sijaan, että tekisimme pitkät listat uudenvuodenlupauksia ja aloitamme liian ankarasti heti vuoden ensimmäisestä päivästä lähtien, asettaisimme tavoitteeksi vuoden viimisen päivän. Ensi vuoden loppuun mennessä olemme saavuttaneet asettamamme tavoitteet.
Vuonna 2019 tuomme sinulle kokonaisvaltaisen hyvinvoinnin valmennuskursseja. Sisältäen mm: ruokavalion, liikunnan, unen, rentoutumisen, ihonhoidon, sekä paljon muuta.
Koska kaikki muut kurssit alkavat jo nyt, vuoden ensimmäisestä päivästä alkaen, meidän ensimmäinen, 8 viikon pituinen kurssi alkaa Helmikuussa.
Pysy kuulolla ensi Sunnuntaina niin ilmoitamme lisää infoa.
Don't start your year 2019 with a healthy lifestyle.
This is an example of a list we tend to make year after year. We are energised to start the new year with a new me. Especially after the Holiday season, after eating and drinking too much for a whole month you feel fired up and ready to take Janurary by storm. We go all in and try to make everything better during the first 31 days of the New Year. For the first two weeks you're exercising every day and spending hours meal prepping in the kitchen. By week three your couch and takeout food start to look a whole lot appealing. And then we fail. How about instead of making this list again. Instead of trying to become a completely different, healthier and better you during the first month, we work on those goals the whole year. How about we take 365 days to work on those, and by the end of next year, around the same time we have reached those goals. The most important thing is to make a list for you. Don't list things just for the fact that those are what everyone else is listing. Make only resolutions that you know you can make. I'm not saying the resolutions should be easy to achieve. We will fight for those resolutions, but make them so that they are challenging but not impossible. And maybe instead of setting up just a goal to lose weight, to sleep more, to exercise more. Set up a goal to become a better you. The best version of you.
This 365 day journey is like climbing a mountain: we will start from the bottom, there will be bumps along the way, there will be rainy days - there will be sunny days, but we are all in this together, and together we can make it. At the end of the year 2019, around this time we will be at the top. That top is different for everyone but we will all be there, and feel better.
During the year 2019 we will have more health & wellness tips and health courses coming up to the website. Follow us on Instagram to get to know our latest plans and to follow our daily life.Dinoliciousfood

I added: Coconut flakes Dried cranberry powder Dried blueberry powder Maple sugar Almonds After adding the toppings place the chocolate back into the fridge for about 30 min. Take off of the mold and cut into barks with a sharp knife.

Glögi is a traditional Finnish and European Christmas drink. It's origin comes from Mulled wine from the middle Europe, but in Finland the non alcoholic version is probably even more popular.
I've always liked the non alcoholic version which is basically just a heated berry juice with some christmas spices. Traditionally Glögi is red, but lately the white version (made of grapes) has grown its popularity. I wanted to make something similar, but of course, Paleo! Ingredients: (serves 2-4) 1L water 5 medium size sweet apples 4tbs maple syrup 5 cinnamon sticks 1tsp cardamom Heat up the water into boiling in a large pan, cut the apples half and add into the water with the spices and maple syrup. Let it boil for 5 minutes and turn the heat onto medium. Cook for approximately 20 minutes. Strain the apples and cinnamon sticks off pour into mugs and drink warm!
