Refreshing warm lemon water and psychology thoughts.

I have spent the morning reading and writing down notes on various ideas for the next essay. It may sound odd to some, but I truly love the process of learning. I enjoy processing the information and allowing myself plenty of time to digest all new theories and concepts. When I used to study ethnology…

A splash of colour!

I found these colourful beauties in the veg shop earlier today and simply couldn’t resist! As my parents in law are visiting and we all are vegetarians it is nice to be able to serve something that is a bit different and a splash of colour is always welcome. I love that my parents in…

Quick lunch and then study.

Just back from the gym, fed the cat and I am now about to tuck into this lovely lunch! A simple salad with some gorgeous avocado to top it all off, yum! I have a busy schedule for the rest of the afternoon as I have to work on my essay which is due on…

Low-carb diets, why all the criticism?

Yesterday I was supposed to be working on my essay, but ended up reading various blog posts about nutrition, weight loss and different diets. Needless to say, I was a naughty student. Ever since I joined some kind of low carb diet (high protein and low fat) I have been amazed by the many negative…

If it tastes too good to be true then it probably is!

So I have been watching my food the past week as I have had a bit too much ‘fun’ as of late. Not in a crazy manner, but we have had friends over and naturally there have been a few dinners out and about. It does make it a tad more difficult to ‘control’ what…

Cauliflower favourite.

During the summer I have become obsessed with this simple and quick dish. It is perfect as a an easy post-training lunch or dinner as it is quite filling but yet light thus successfully dodging a ‘bloated’ feeling. In all honesty, I am all about convenient food and one requirement is that it has to be easy….

My week in oatmeal.

I have changed my eating habits quite a bit the last three months. Instead of skipping breakfast in favour of ‘fasting’ and only eating lunch and tea (dinner) I have now made a point out of eating breakfast every morning. This of course goes hand in hand with my new training regime which actually requires…

Wednesday and a favourite breakfast!

This morning was somewhat magical, woke up fully rested and I love how the sunlight bounce against the white snow making it even brighter! Since I am a light fanatic, that is one of the best attributes of winter in my opinion. Anyway, started my morning with a favourite breakfast containing a lovely avocado (big health booster…

Breakfast for cold mornings, and training routine is back on!

Shortly after my previous post I caught a cold virus which after a week turned into a horrendous cough. Today is actually one of the first days when I feel back to normal again and I am so very happy about that. I really don’t do being ill, as I am not a very good patient due…

Breakfast and Beetroot Juice.

Sunday, and I started my morning with a lovely breakfast and some beetroot juice. Must say that I had a rather lazy morning actually, much deserved after yesterdays kickboxing and static strength exercises. I love that kind of exhaustion that happens after a tough workout. I don’t think I ever feel so alive as I do…

If you cannot eat the rainbow, at least eat your veggies.

Simply cannot get enough of this dish at the moment. So ridiculously simple, so tremendously good. You have seen it all before, cherry tomatoes, yellow pepper, leek, courgette, aubergine, sun-dried tomatoes and once finished topped with some low-fat feta cheese. Heavenly good. I have spent a good amount of time at the gym today, focusing…

Early morning run.

Woke up at 6 am this morning and could not go back to sleep for some reason, so naturally I went out for a morning run. As you do. Was quite tired in my legs since Sundays run when I pushed both pace and distance further than normal and on top of that I had a…
