Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!

So this is again more of the food I had on Tuesday and even a meal from Monday. BUT I start with my breakfast from today which is totally delicious:

Now back to Monday and Tuesday – since I did not feel particularly well on New Year’s eve I just cooked up some Pumpkin-Prridge, cause I felt that my stomach could cope with that. It’s warm, comforting, light and quite easy to digest. Well, just not a very festive meal, right….

Pumpkin Porridge w. Apple Sauce and 1 tsp Almond Butter

Tuesday morning I woke up and felt weak and drained and STARVING! I ran into the kitchen and grabbed what I could get and that was this:

IMG_1996-you probaby wonder what the heck that is – this is a very traditional Basel-Speciality called ‘Faschtewaie’ – sorry I can not translate this into English, it’s just a Swiss German word. It was a plain and dry thing which I craved after having this upset stomach the night before. I love these, but I have to be decent by eating them, as it’s white grain and that causes bloating. And this:

So that wasn’t really a ‘meal’, more like snacking, but it was just what I needed. I went out for a walk to start the New Year, Sandro was still sleeping. It was so nice to be out and breathe the fresh air, and no people around yet.

Lunch was GOOD!!!

Fluffy scrambled eggs, cherry tomatoes, edamame

plus 4 unpictured glutenfree crackers.

Tipp: I always wanted to make my omelets or scrambled eggs fluffier – now I tried to add a splash of almond milk, and well, it DOES make a difference!! Much better!!

You probably think ‘I thought she wanted to detox’ – YES, I am actually on it, haha!! 🙂 Detox for me means I do eat even more clean and I cut back on sugar, carbs and alcohol, and practise portion control – but it doesn’t mean I cut it out completely. If I do that I put myself in danger to relapse and that is the least I want to happen. I want to give my body some treats, to satisfy the sweet craving. For the next few weeks/months I definitely need to minimize them, cause I want to shape up.

I had a bit of a timing problem in the evening – we went to the movies which started at 5pm and came back home at 7:30. At 8pm I had ma Skype date with Shannon, so no time for dinner, but sorry, that’s a NO GO! So I just packed a small dinner up to grab right after the movie….

1 handful of these:

Glutenfree Blue Corn Chips

    Come, on Lucie!Can I move in with you? Please?! I love your food and now I demand the pancake recipe!!! 😀 😀 😀
    Have a great Wednesday! (I bet you’ll be having some fabulous food yet again! Jealous!)
    xo

    • Haha, I love you girl! You are welcome here, anytime!! I just finished the pancakes, but already thinking about lunch, haha….Pancake recipe will follow!! Have a great day too, my Dear!!

  2. Great tip on the almond milk, will have to give it a go! Hope you start feeling better soon Lucie!

  3. Ah, I want those pancakes right now.. even if I had my own for breakfast! Can you ever really have too many pancakes in one day though? Nope!!!!

  4. I like your version of a detox! Sooo much healthier in my opinion than cutting everything out!

  5. whiness says:

    Coconut-banana pancakes – I’m in love ❤ It must be delicious!
    Your detox is not only healthy but also tasty 🙂 Great!

  6. There;s definitely nothing more soothing than porridge when you’re not feeling well. Glad to hear that you’re almost back to your happy self 🙂 And it’s even better to hear that your nit cutting things out completely in an effort to ‘detox.’ That’s definitely a dangerous road when you’ve struggled with disordered eating in the past, so I’m happy that you’re being smart about it ❤

    • I love my porridge anytime but especially when I have a funny stomach – it’s so comforting! And yes – I went through horrible detoxes with only juicing and stuff like this – never again, I want chocolate in my life 🙂

  7. Your pancakes look delicious! I’m in a bad habit now of eating Yogurt every day for breakfast (quick and easy to bring to work)

  8. blue corn chips are my favorite, I totally agree with your approach of moderation. I know I need to have what I crave so that I keep my body happy.

  9. Mmm! The pancakes and the porridge totally have me drooling! And I’m the same way with detoxing…I’ve been steering clear of sweets since Christmas since I overdid this year, but today, I got the most intense craving for chocolate so I had a cookie…ok, maybe I had two…and a few crumbs! 😉 But it TOTALLY hit the spot! Sometimes you just gotta give in! Plus, I am definitely the type of person who will end up “rebelling” if I restrict too much…and it ain’t pretty! lol

    • LOL!!! Same here!! If I restrict totally, it’s not going to have a good end. I get hangry and bitchy and then I start to binge – no one wants to be near me and I feel even worse after! Moderation is key!!

    Mmmm all looks delicious! Late night snacks are always a mess like that in my house haha.
