Hello dear readers and friends!! I am so sorry about that mess I created over this weekend. I don’t know what was wrong with my post, but onsugar.com decided to put in in SPAM and I had no chance to republish it.
I anyway wanted to switch to Wrdpress, but nit so soon as my blog is not looking the way yet I want it. So bear with me, this is just the beginning, loads to imporve here! I still want you to read my news and so I go for it now. I hope you are enjoying it anyway!! So this post was created yesterday morning, so don’t get confused about my time mentions.
I know, it’s not Monday yet but it can be a marvelous Saturday too, right?? Friday
was already a good start off into the weekend!! Actually, it was an early christmas for me.
My ordered stuff finally arrived and I was so excited!!
What is better than coming home from a hard workout at the gym and finding a pair of new, beautiful shoes in front of your door??? I tried them right away, it looked so glam with my workout wear still on.
Early Christmas gift for myself……
Then a huge package of food!!!
Glutenfree cereals! Hmmmm, sooo good:
- Nutty Cranberry Maple Granola
They will get in the belly of Sandro soon, I am sure…
I’ll go easy with these. First because I got only 1 package each and secondly cause I feel better without too many carbs. My stomach woes don’t appear that often when I cut out the carbs and besides that I still want to lose 2 kilos. But I think once a week on the weekend for breakfast, that will surely happen around here! This morning it fell right into my breakfast bowl. But I think I’d rather eat it just like that. Hand in bag, grab cereal, hand in mouth. Yumm.
Pumpkin Protein Smoothie with Nutty Cranberry Maple Granola on top….
I got also new flavors from Questbar! Coconut/Cashew and Cinnamon Roll
– anyone tried those yet?
Coconut Cashew Indulgement
And my ABSOLUTE favorite almond butter: Crunchy from Once Again! I ordered 2 jars but one was broken….bugger!! I could not keep it, it was full of glass splinters. Hm. So I have to treat this one very sparingly!!!
Get in my belly!!
Inspired by my dearest Jessie
who was attacked by a baking desire in the middle of the night, I wanted to bake something myself (at daytime though :-)) and went for the protein-pumpkin-banana-chocolate-bread I saw on Anna’s blog here
. I totally want to do the zucchini-chocolate-bread
from Jessie too, but it contains some stuff I can not get here. So I gave this one a try and it turned out good! As almost everything that I bake, it did not look like the picture on the recipe….I get used to that. and I think it is not meant to be so soft and doughy on the inside but it actually tastes really good! It’s sweet, but not too sweet and it’s actually a good snack or preworkout booster as it contains bananas, protein powder and oats!
Dough is ready to go
Later on, I strolled through some shops and guess what I found?? Coconut flour!! Finally!! I always see those Paleo
recipes on different blogs where they use coconut flour and I could never find it anywhere but now they sell it just around the corner, I am so excited. Now I just have to decide what to do with it 🙂 Danielle
always have so creative and delicious recipes on her blog, I guess I have to go and do some research there.
Good baking goods
I also found Coconut water
at MIGROS but this one is sweetened with agave nectar and I actually like it unsweetened. But I guess I’ll have it once in a while besides the pure coco water from Arizona
Sweetened Coco Water
I did no write my FPP post yesterday as the package did not arrive yet. The mail from and to Switzerland
is so slow it is ridiculous. And if I want a package to be there sooner, I pay around 50$ according to the weight. Well, I hope it arrives soon though and also my package in Kuwait
for Jessie and Joshua!
Last night, Sandro
went out with his guys and I had Anne, a good friend over for a Couch-DVD
-Ladies-night. I love that. We had some prosecco before dinner and wanted a nice picture of the 2 of us. While discussing and chatting about…..hmmmm…. – I don’t have a clue as to what the heck we were discussing and what so exciting there was in this back corner of the kitchen – Sandro took a picture. Haha, very good.
Hello? Here’s the music!!
When he left, we curled up on the couch and enjoyed some healthy take away. I had a big bowl of salad with cucumber, tomatoes, roastbeef and shrimps. SOO GOOD. This week was kind of a salad-week, I think I had such a bowl almost every day! Anne had Sushi which I forgot to take a picture, oh well!
After dinner guess what happened – SEX AND THE CITY!! Believe me friends, I could watch the series or the movie over and over again. I am SO in love with SATC especially with Samantha and Miranda. I so love the scene when Charlotte freaks out in the restaurant when Carrie tells them that she will get married to Big: ‘And I am deaf now on my right ear.’ They crack me up and I rock with laughter, really. We watched the 1st movie last night, I think this was the 6th time or so I’ve seen it. It was definitely not the last time!!
This morning Sandro and me went for a run. We haven’t done that in a while cause most of the time I am up earlier than him and start my morning workout alone. This morning though I started with my daily meditation and then did a Yoga session. By the time I was finished, Sandro crawled out of bed and we headed off. It was freezing, but beautiful with some fog-leftovers and the morning sun coming out!!
Now we are in our Saturday morning (or more like midday) tradition: sitting in our favorite coffeeplace, having a breakfast-lunch, chatting, reading newspaper (him) and magazines (me)and blogging (me). We will be off soon to the little christmas market we have down the road. I will make sure to take some pics to share with you on Monday! A bit of shopping downtown and in the evening we are invited for drinks – it’s the birthday of one of my friends today. Rest of the weekend will be lazy, for sure!!
