Kale chips and birthday celebrations

I have now become completely obsessed with kale chips and have to force myself not to eat them all once I have prepared them! I genuinely do think they are the best side to any dish.  So far I tend to add a few to my generic salad and I must say it just makes…

Saturday efficiency

Yesterday was amazing, quite emotional but mostly lovely to finally meet up my friend again after being apart for years. Unfortunately she is going back to the US again tomorrow morning, but at least we have managed to update each other on all that is important in our lives. Much needed, and so much love….

Cauliflower medallions and simple salad lunch

Tuesday and I have had a cardio day at the gym which was lovely. Horrendous weather here though, hence the difficulties in finding a ‘nice’ natural light for photos. The photo (above) of todays lunch, two cauliflower medallions and simple salad (cherry tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber) looks grey and dull instead of appetising! But trust me,…

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….

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…

Sunday Run-day, beating the pollen!

Big post-run belated breakfast (mushrooms, spinach, 2 eggs – easy, quick, delicious!), couldn’t decide if it was a good idea to head out this morning or not which resulted in waiting a tad too long. My body is quite used to waiting for at least an hour with breakfast due to taking my thyroid medication…

Vegetarians, meat-eaters and my reason for eating seafood.

Finally Friday and though I didn’t get to go to Prague this weekend it’s still lovely to have some time off along with everyone else. I started my day with a gym session which was lovely, I definitely enjoy hanging out in the gym working on and focusing on strength training. I have however switched from rather…

Banana-pancakes and a bit of a Hashimoto rant.

Banana-pancakes because…its Wednesday and I bloody well deserve it! I am having a great training week so far, but unfortunately not a so great Hashimoto (💀) week. Thus I have to head back to my doctor again and ‘force’ him to take a second look at my lab results (and take new ones) because something is…

Sunday vegetarian lunch.

When it comes to food I tend to stick to what I like to a great extent, this sometimes means that I repeat the same meal a few times during the week. I know that its not everyones cup of tea but I really don’t mind repetition as long as its healthy and something that I…
