I woke up happy at 6AM and excited for the day! I got up, meditated and then went downstairs for breakfast. It’s always exciting to have breakfast in different environments across the world, see what kind of people are there (men in their 50s with suits, big briefcases with toast and bacon is the most common) and of course what view I’ll have. Ten days ago it was the French riviera and sunlight at Cap Ferrat and a few days before it was the river in Shanghai. Today it’s beautiful buildings and an ice cream museum in San Francisco.
It seems like it opens in April….!
Omelette with mushroom, fresh berries, pressed carrots and coffee. I love American portions. I facetimed with Sally in the meanwhile. She stayed at home today with because of a fever.
After that I did an exercise seasion at Equinox which is in the same building as the hotel. Very handy. I did a tough stamina session. After that I answered emails and sent text messages to the colleagues in Stockholm. Now I’m off to meetings!
As you’ve guessed, we’ve had our new chef with us for a week and it feels wonderful! We eat different kinds of food every day so that everyone feels they eat what they like and so far we’re really happy. I love the Asian cuisine, the food is often spicy with lots of flavour. I’m not a big fan of classic Swedish cuisine which can be a bit bland with the flavours. The thing I love about mat.se is that there’s a lot of inspiration from different cuisines, it’s so nice to just click on a button ans order the ingredients immediately once you’ve found a recipe you like.
I was so happy when I saw last week’s menu and noticed that we’d have a crispy asian salad with ginger dressing one day. It was so delicioys. The dish felt fresh, filling and nutritious. Those are things I really put value on with food. This is really glow food! The whole family, particularly Lovisa and our chef Anna, love mat.se because they make all deliveries so easy. There’s also a tab with mat.se called ”vegan shop” where they have ingredients for vegan food. It’s really good because many people struggle to find inspiration for vegan food. Lovisa usuallt scroll down that page and orders food for is, in case there are any new products to try. Check out vegan-shop.
I asked Anna to put together a recipe and method for the lovely salad she made last week so you can make it at home. You can find the recipe at mat.se här!

.. and we’re here! It always feels strange to have breakfast with the kidd and then go to bed on the other side of the globe on the same day. The soul gets a bit left behind but that’s why meditation is so important. I got a bit of advice from somebody who also stays at hotels a lot and the first thing he does when he checks in is to choose the place where he’ll be meditating. We are staying at Four Seasons here in San Francisco and my lounge has huge windows so my place for meditation is going to be by the window on a cushion so I can look at the view.
This time I’m travelling with Sascha, Mikaela (instead of Emelie) and then my PR manager is meeting us in NYC. I have a press-day on Thursday. Tomorrow is going to be a fun day, first exercise and getting ready. Then meeting my retailer, Sephora and an interview with Di Digitals correspondent in Silicon Valley. Nordic Tech House were there for a visit last week!
