Marvelous in my Monday!

Hello and welcome to Marvelous in my Monday!! To make sure that this week is of to a good start, we are celebrating MIMM hosted by wonderful Katie with Baby G.

MiMM

Gosh, this weekend seemed like neverending. Other than fun weekends, this weekend was filled with sitting home alone and studying. Eeeeeeeeh. Well, I did not only study of course, in my breaks (which took place a lot :-)) I had other marvelous stuff on my plan. For example baking some Friday morning postworkout breakfast:

Oatmeal Protein Muffin, fresh Blueberries

Oatmeal Protein Muffin, fresh Blueberries

I saw Sandro quickly before he left for snowboarding with the guys. He found a new shop a bit outside of Zurich and brought some goodies home:

Clif Energy Bar - White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Flavr, Divine White Chocolate, Oat Crumble Cookies

Clif Energy Bar – White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Flavour, Divine White Chocolate, Oat Crumble Cookies

All three were delicious, yet pretty high caloric and added sugar. So, ideal for a treat once in a while but definitely not a regular item on my meal plan.

I kept it low key on Friday night, created some memory cards for studying and was up and bright on Saturday morning. I cycled straight to the supermarket to get my stuff before the big Saturday crowd arrived.

Asparagus, Broccoli, Chicken, CocoWater, Pumpkin, Ognions, Coconut Milk, Cashew Nuts, Strawberries, Baby Bananas, Lemons, Ginger, Apple Vinegar (for Meta D Drink!!)

I also got these mini-casseroles and muffin baking forms!

Before I started baking, I did a few Ab Burners from Gina, ToneItUp and Blogilates. Burn Burn Burn!!!

I saw this recipe for Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies on Gemma’s YouTube Channel, the recipe comes originally from ChocolateCoveredKatie. When they came out of the oven I tried one, and….oh. SO good. Totally soft on the inside, supertasty and the only ‘sugary’ ingredients are the dates and the few chocolate chips. You would NEVER guess that the main ingredients are …… – CHICKPEAS!!!

Katie’s recipe is a pie, but I like it better as cookies. Saying that, I must admit, the pie looks pretty delish too…..

….or is it just the icecream that makes it look so irresistable? ๐Ÿ™‚

Breakfast/Lunch needed to happen after!!

Eggwhite omelett in a wholegrain tortilla, spinach&strawberries

Valentine-s-Day-Movie-Poster-3-emma-roberts-15281320-992-1500I needed to take the chance to watch that when Sandro is not here. He is obviously too cool to watch a chick-flick with me…..:-) I loved it!! It was the perfect movie for me, the couch and my dinner….

Eggwhite omelette (the 2nd one…whooops), Nori Wraps with smoked salmon and broccolimousse

Followed by one of the cookies dipped in a mix of 1 tsp Almond Butter wih 1 tsp honey…..hmmmmm.

Sunday morning I woke up and did my normal morning routine – meditation – hot lemon water – workout. I did have a preworkout snack since I slept longer and felt weak and hypogylcemic.

Baby Banana, Peanut QUESTBAR

Baby Banana, Chocolate Peanut Butter QUESTBAR

I did a 3 times TRX circuit with some cycle blasts in between and a few rounds of thisย HIIT routineย and added thisย arm routine from TIU, gosh, that was hard!

Oatbran-Curd-Pancakes & healthy chocolate covered strawberries

Postworkout meal was a new pancake recipe. A good friend of mine sent it to me, I will post it on Tuesday – it is SO good and light too!

Studying, Meal Prep and a Starbucks-Coffee(Tea)-Date with a good friend happened for the rest of the afternoon…..

IMG_2080

I was so glad I met her, I did not talk to anyone for almost 2 days!! AAAH! I felt like I’d go crazy. I mean I am girl and a talker, and the words just started to pile up in my head, they had to be thrown out, haha……:-)

A new recipe was created too…..hmmmmm. I used the mini casserole right for the first time and it was totally worth it. Recipe up on Tuesday!! Look out!

What was marvelous about your weekend?ย 

What is marvelous about this Monday?ย 

Do you like to send time alone? I love it, but when it gets too much, it gets too much. I can get very fed up by myself, yup ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a marvelous Monday!!

    Hi there

    could you please tell me where that shop is? I live in Zurich and really like Clif Bars.
    Thank you! And I think I’m gonna make those cookies quite soon, they look delish!

  3. “Valentine’s Day” is such a cute movie I’ve watched more than once already. Sandro clearly doesn’t know what he’s missing out on ;).

    Finally experiencing more pleasant temperatures and sunshine (!) again surely was one of the marvelous things in my weekend. As well as overcoming a fear food by baking Avocado Brownies :).

    Hope you’re having a great start to the new week, Lucie!

    • Oh, I am s oproud of you!! Overcoming fear foods are great steps. High Five!
      And yes, I LOVE Valentine’s Day too. I think I will watch it again, maybe Sandro will give in and join me ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love when people bake with beans! It is so sneaky, yet sounds so delicious! I really want to try making cookies with chickpeas and brownies with black beans :).

  5. mmm i love using chickpeas in baking!!

  6. oh man all the food looks so good. You are so creative in the kitchen

  7. Nadja says:

    Weekend for me was the same: neverending! I spent most of my time studying and the other part of my time in my bed (guess i caught a flu…) so a bit boring ๐Ÿ˜‰ but hopefully i’ll be back in the “real life” tomorrow! Happy monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. A marvellous sounding weekend for sure Lucie! You’re so productive it’s amazing! Baking, studying, working out… You manage to fit so much in!

  10. Lisa says:

    Looks like a fabulous weekend for you!
    Love all the food you got a making, looks seriously fantastic.
    I’m always intrigued by the bean cookies/brownies/cakes, I just don’t know if I can get on board with that! Maybe I should try it out ha.
    Happy Monday beauty!

  11. Greta says:

    Oh, the glorious Lucie’s food!!! You eat like the queen, hon! I still wonder how do you stop! I truly can’t imagine?!
    Like that white chocolate! I love white chocolate and the one with macadamia nuts!!! This must be heavenly!! Those would be gone to my stomach within the seconds!
    Oh, gosh, I have been working madly this weekend and yesterday. And my interned connection is so dead – nothing marvelous is happening here, as you see.

    However I hope Tuesday will be kinder to me. Wishing you the same, gorgeous!

    • Haha thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ well, i did eat that white chocolate bar at once. So what? Nothing happened. And the other stuff I planned in over the weekend. That’s how it works for me. Otherwise it would be gone at once for sure!
      Uh, Internet problems suck and sorry that you had to work so hard – wish you a wonderful day today and take good care girl!!

  12. Wow-weee! Look at you Miss Productive!! Sounds like a pretty MARVELOUS weekend to me! And omg, I LOVE baking cookies with beans! If you like carrot cake, you should check out my recipe for carrot cake chickpea cookies http://www.kissmybroccoliblog.com/2011/08/12/carrot-cake-cookies/ They are sooooo good!

    Loved that movie! And even though I kinda hate Taylor Swift, I couldn’t help but bust out laughing at her character every time she came on screen! Lol

    I do like my alone time, but like you, sometimes I just want to gab with a friend for hours too! ๐Ÿ˜‰
