Brunch Spots in Denmark!

One thing that I absolutely love to do is to EAT!

200

Literally it could be the only thing that I enjoy doing and since I’ve been to Denmark which have been a year old I have been to a number of places. Some places are good, some are better than good. Trying out new Foods and places is one of my favourite hobbies to do(no jokes). But I guess as long as anything involves food is in my favourite list. Saying this repeating-ly is just to emphasise the fact how much I love it!!!

Let’s talk about some good places I have been and recommend fully.

  • So because of my love for food I am gonna do a series of the famous food spots and tell you guys about my experience. So I am gonna start with:

The Brunch Spots

#1: Cafe Norden:

Cafe Norden is one of the finest places to be at. It located on the main centre of Copenhagen, it’s on Walking street and it is without any doubt always filled with people who are there for shopping or just strolls and all kind of tourists. The decor and Food is good at Cafe Norden but according to the prices I would say that the place is a bit over-priced and over-rated.

They have all kind of foods you would want during the brunch time from pancakes to sandwiches to salads and burgers and basically anything you would want. But if you want to feel extra fancy you must go there and try it, I would think that with the prices they offer, you can go to some different place and get good food. One thing with there price is a fair amount, the quantity of their food will satisfy you fully!

#2: Cafe Øst:

Cafe Øst is an amazing brunch spot. The owners from that place are Moroccan and they have decorated the place to give a little touch from their culture. the food their is just amazing. They offer smaller portion but more options per menu. The food their is delicious and amazing and one of my favourites.

their pricing is also very fair and its a great place for friends get to-gether. the environment is warm and friendly. it isn’t one of the fanciest places and the staff usually consists of 2 to 3 members but you wouldn’t feel that to be a problem because they perform their job pretty well.

#3: Cafe Phoenix:

It os one really cozy place that offers a brunch buffet. It’s really good if you can’t decide on what to chose. you can just munch upon everything in a smaller quantity. they have good variety of almost everything you would like for breakfast and brunch time including eggs, sausages, Fresh bread, cold Turkey slices, some fried stuff that you would crave, pancakes, fresh fruit etc.

it has reasonable prices per person and the environment is really great for shorter amount of times.

#4: Wulff og Konstali:

It’s a really busy spot and that would be because of the over-hyped reason due to a lot of young students. When we went there it was almost full but the food really didn’t impressed us. The food was extremely small, in portion and the price was fairly high regarding the amount of food they provided.

#5: Dalle Valle:

Dalle Valle is one of an amazing places to be at for a Brunch and dessert. they have fresh brunch buffet . their brunch is pretty fresh all the time and they have more variety than Cage Pheonix, I believe. the taste is good and the pricing is fair just don’t order extra’s including juices or anything excluding the buffet because they do cost more. so stray away from extra’s and you are good to go.

 

#6: Cafe Pilos:

I personally have really liked this place. Its really small and cozy. it can hardly have 20 people in it which makes it very inclusive. I had seen families going there for a brunch. mothers with their infants, friends, and couples coming there and having a great time in there. there menu is small yet the food is filling and delicious. there serving style is really modest and inspiring.

These are the places I have been to and here are my reviews about them. Do let me know what Brunch spots are great , where you are residing.

I will see you all soon in the next series very soon.

See Ya!

Them diets

Hi to all the wonderful people out there. Hopefully you are all doing fantabulous. today I will be talking about just about every possible diet introduced to humanity. It’s just a hobby that helps me keep the weight off and look and feel much better.

So all ya all, just get ready to dive into a long journey of how it all started and what I have been doing for almost 5 years.

It all started Three years ago when I got engaged and I got introduced to a healthy lifestyle and losing weight, mostly because of my upcoming wedding I had to look good for, and I am very glad it happened because before that I actually never cared about or gave any thought to my looks or any possible health issues I might have had, well luckily there were not any. I didn’t mostly cared about it because I am one confident being and plus my height kind of filled that all, so I didn’t give a fat impression, but sure as Chubby.

But what happened was that I had to lose weight within 15 days for my engagement and everyone kept telling me how the pictures will stay there forever and I had to get myself together. what I started with, wasn’t the right option but it actually kick-started my whole system and lured me into living my life healthy.

  1. Crash Diet;

So yeah this was the first diet I tried because I got worried and that was the only solution I had left, I knew it wasn’t the best ways to lose weight and that you gain all the weight back on but because I became desperate in that time so I was willing to do whatever it takes. I wanted results and no matter how it will end I knew it was only solution.

I drank 4 to 5 litres of water everyday and only had one Fruit or vegetable, 3 times a day and that too excluding potatoes and bananas. This diet ensured that I loose 1 kg per day, and I did. I didn’t think about joining the gym that time but I knew I needed to lose that water weight so I had to do some sort of workout, I downloaded some HIIT cardio workouts for 30 to 40 minutes and I just danced around for like an hour, everyday.

well all of it did worked and did lost 8 kgs in 10 days, I was beyond happy because I have never experienced that before.

Aftermath;

200w-8.gif

okay, so I did got engaged and for the 10 days I did not eat anything at all and when I went back to South Africa, I ate a lot more than I usually ate, resulting in getting all the weight back on plus some extra pounds, which after a certain point got me so scared and I had to think about different ways to get me back on track.

So no, Crash diets are not any good way to lose your weight unless its necessary and you promise yourself to keep your self uptight.

2. Cabbage Soup diet;

After the whole crash diet fatigue I was once again ready to get on the healthy lifestyle train. I searched a lot and came across this Cabbage diet among many others, available on the internet. This diet consists of you just having this soup twice a day with some vegetable if you want.

this diet almost did nothing for me and I got bored with it real quick, the soup didn’t even tasted worth letting it on, maybe if you know how to make healthy soup delicious, then you might get successful with this.

3. Military Diet;

After the Soup diet failed me, I got to know Military diet. This diet allows you to consume certain meals according to their time period. This diet promises you to lose 3 to 4 kg of body weight within 3 days, if you eat and follow exactly what they have given. you can follow this diet for 3 days and then eat whatever you want for the rest of the week.

This Diet does work and you will be able to see results real quick and I really liked this method because I like to follow certain given rules, make sit a lot much easier. But the only problem with this diet was that you can binge eat all the fat you have lost in those 4 days, at least I did. but if you are persistent, you can definitely try this diet and it will do wonders for you.

4. I finally started gyming;

This I would say has been the best decision of my life so far, it literally makes me so happy to talk about this. I know mostly for people gyming or working out is the biggest issue but have you tried “Group Training Programme”?

If No, then you really should because being in the group training programme is a lot more fun then doing it alone in the gym. I am so glad that  I got to know this group training bootcamp. They had variety of workouts throughout the week. I honestly, fell involve with exercising. I loved how I could feel the blood rushing through my body and I had so much control over my body. screenshot_20181114-113652_samsung-notesI got introduced to so many workouts. At G’s Boot camp, they had the mixture of Cardio, Kickboxing, Zumba, Steps and so much more blog with the qualified and the most friendly instructors ever.

I was lucky tat it was really close to my house, but honestly if I would’ve started it and it was anywhere else, I would still go there, no matter what. There is timing and sessions for different classes at G’s Boot camp, and me being addicted to it, I usually took 2 or even 3 session one after another everyday because I enjoyed it and loved every second of being there. screenshot_20181114-113710_samsung-notes

The head Trainer Gusmari, had that charisma and attitude that makes you feel enthusiastic and love what you do. You hate her first but trust me what she does is amazing, and you will be thanking her once you are done, because it is all worth it. There were mostly females there in all ages, sizes, shapes and weights and everybody had smiles and friendliness happening around, it was the positivity of that place that really attracted me. screenshot_20181114-113106_photos

I suggest you join a group training facility if you find it hard to stay motivated and don’t want to join the gym. I have been very sad since I’ve been to Europe I haven’t found a good group training facility and I do still train but it’s just not fun, I will tell you guys all about it in another blog.

5. I thought gyming will do the magic and I don’t have to get on a diet or do anything;

Mostly people think that if they have started workout and do cardio for 2 hours, they will get the body they desire. but the fact is that its 70% of your diet and 30% of workout that have impact on your overall body. that shook me and then I knew that I have to careful and considerate about what I put inside my body to attain what I want on the outside. so you unfortunately have to cutout all the carbs and sweets cravings out to maintain and achieve your body goals.

6. I got back to senses and did the right thing FINALLY;

This was when I have tried a lot and figured out how to do the right thing without just going after my required results.

you need to make a sustainable gaol, which is loosing 1 kg of fat within 15 days and you will end up losing 2 by the end of the month. that’s how you can lose weight, gain muscle and get more energy in your body. eating healthy and working out goes hand in hand and they both work simultaneously.

That’s how you can lose weight and keep it off for as long as you want. yes.gif

Verdict; PERSISTENCY is the key. its something you need the most whenever you are trying to achieve something including getting your body of dreams.

Stay persistent and keep pushing!!!

Bye my Chicas…

I have a serious S U S H I OBSESSION

Sushi is good for us. no kiddings! It actually has a ton of health benefits… So let us all go to the near Sushi restaurant and gather up all those benefits we can have from it.

Hello and Welcome everyone and before I hear all the groans and moans about sushi being a raw fish and that it tastes bad or how can someone swallow or even digest it. (eye roll).These are all just self-made thought guys, seriously I have had sushi just 2 days ago and I can assure you all that it tastes just delicious and yes I am living and breathing and functioning just fine.

Sushi tastes incredible and I was serious when I said it comes with so many health benefits that are implausible.

  1. It improves your Heart health, since it raw fish, its rich I omega-3 fatty acids.
  2. It gives your Metabolism boost, which honestly is amazing for dietary benefits.
  3. Reduces the risk of cancer.
  4. Ensure healthy hormonal balance.
  5. Sushi improves Circulation.

I don’t think I started dating sushi regarding any health benefit. I just tried and loved it.but one thing to always live by is, and I quote “Excess of everything is bad”. Going overboard is never a good idea rather it goes I the wrong direction.

I tried Sushi for the first time in South Africa. My husband was the one who actually introduced me to Sushi because he loved it long time before me. We specially went out on a sushi date just to practice how our sushi-life would go.

We all could guess what happened after this I really liked it very much but the one with fried prawn is my utter favourite and right after a month I came to Denmark and he took me to the finest Sushi restaurant we have here in Copenhagen.

Sticks’N’Sushi

All of this is just for 2 people. Dont Judge!

Their sushi specifically tastes so good because their quality is mind-blowing. their rice, avocados, tuna, salmon, soya everything has an extinctive perfection.

After that I tried a local Food market’s sushi. the sushi there, was amazing because they had additional flavour and spices added into it, which was out of routine, so I really find it relishing. The only problem I could see from it was that you can not eat a lot of it since its flavourful you feel full very quickly and I believe you can get bored with it very easily. It was good for a change but I would not be eating that a lot.

Guess where we turn back!…

This really looks Delicious. it making me want to have sushi again.

 

 

Watami

Although Sticks’N’sushi is my all-time favourite and I can surely say that I have been in almost all the branches of it in cph, but we do try out new places every now and then, We went to a sushi restaurant WATAMI. Its a cozy, small restaurant and it is located in one of the posh areas of copenhagen.

Their service and execution was really good but they are a bit overpriced. The sushi tastes really refined there as-well.

Their starters ere really good and the meat was well-cooked and had just the right amount of spices on it. it was a good experience at Watami.

 

Letz’sushi

Few days ago me and my friend went to a sushi-chain all over the Europe restaurant called Letz Sushi.

20181018_200509

the sushi there was okay-ish but it got my friend and I really sick. maybe it was there soya sauce that was a little too sour or maybe its their way of making sushi but you have to be careful, eating sushi from take-outs. It requires a lot of care to make the perfect Sushi so find a good place and enjoy it and gain all the heath benefits as well.

Trying Sushi in Italy

we went to our Honeymoon and of course, we had to try out their sushi. it tastes really well there swell and it was pretty good restaurant in Rome. there sushi had that perfect perk we wan it to ave so we totally fell involve with that.
