I’m a 20-something business school graduate, foodie and entrepreneur living in Helsinki, loving pretty much all things wellness (so much that I’m currently studying my second degree in nutrition at IIN). I like early mornings, traveling, yoga + sports, design and graphical stuff…Most importantly, I’m a passionate cook and a total health nut.

My Instagram account @anniskk together with this site are spaces that I’ve created for sharing inspiration on healthy eating, exercising and wellbeing for you to explore. These spaces are also my visual diary…I want to inspire and encourage also you to start experimenting in the kitchen, get creative, have fun with food, move your body, love lots, sleep enough and feel amazing afterwards.

After blueberryboost, I’ve founded DATE + KALE, a plant-based, health food and wellness concept with Richard McCormick. Our first deli location will open in Helsinki late 2016. For more on the recipe side, check out my first print cook book that will be published in UK, US and Australia in January 2017.


I’ve been transitioning to a plant-based diet and lifestyle for quite some time, from quitting red meat over ten years ago to leaving out also poultry 1-2 years back and now eating only plant food at home with the exception of bee products. From time to time, I do still include some fish, eggs or dairy when eating out if it’s sustainable and organic. Because I created this site a couple years back, you may still find a couple of old recipes that are not completely veggie.

My food choices have always been mainly health-related (although the environmental and ethical aspects are growing bigger and bigger in importance all the time once I’m becoming more aware). When applying to university some years back, I went through a very stressful period in my life which reflected straight to my physical wellbeing – I was suffering from constant stomach pains, digestion problems, skin issues, food intolerances and couldn’t sleep. Although I had always eaten quite healthily, that’s when I started to really pay attention to what I was putting in my body, quitting refined sugars and processed foods and replacing them with real foods: veggies, fruit, legumes, nuts, seeds, grains and so on. This way of eating is what still makes me feel best today.

  1. Hi Anni! Love your blog and feel so inspired by your recipes and photography.. Any chance you would ever publish a book with all your amazing recipes in it?? I’d be your first order 🙂 x


  2. Hey Anni,
    I couldn’t be more happy to find your page and instagram. I am so inspired by you and i would love to work with you! We have so many things in common with you after reading about you! Let me introduce myself…I am Jacqueline from Singapore. I am currently in my final year at the National University of Singapore majoring in Business 🙂

    I actually just came back from Sweden where i did my exchange programme at Lund University earlier this year. I LOVE Sweden a lot and i want to go back! I am planning to find an internship or a job in Stockholm!

    I have a dream to build a brand of my own and i want my brand to inspire women all around the world. I just created a blog of my own 1 week ago. Im really just starting, so pardon me for my incomplete set up of my web page!

    I love Sweden so much that i decided to have my website link in swedish 😉

    I am writing to you if you want to collaborate with me to build a community of strong, beautiful and powerful women. We can definitely talk more about it if you are interested.

    I hope to hear from you soon! x



  3. Hi anni! I love your smoothie bowls sooooo much! The recipes are always delicious, and all of my friends love them too!!! One thing we all want to know though, is where in the world do you get the adorable spoons with the pattern on the end! We love your work and can’t wait to see more.
    XOXO Madi B


  4. Dear Anni, I am really enjoying your Porridge book. Sometimes, though, I do not have bananas to hand and many recipes require them. Do you have a substitute that you can suggest? Thank you.


    1. Hi Lynda! Thanks for the feedback. You could just leave the banana out of most of the recipes and use dates or a liquid natural sweetener instead, if required. Bananas also give a nice texture though!
