Hey y’all!

Today’s recipe is not totally made up by me, I was inspired by Amanda and actually just adapted her Pumpkin Mexican Chilli Scramble. It will be posted on Kierston’s Recipe Friday campaign!!!

I wanted to do this last Tuesday for dinner, but  did not have the ingredients on hand, so I changed it slightly and out came the


It is SO simple and easy, great if you want a balanced, warm and light meal that is prepared in no time! And it tastes SO good with the coconut/curry flavor!

1/3 can chickpeas

1tbsp curry

1 small shredded zucchini

4 cherry tomatoes

2 tbsp coconut milk

1 tsp of each cinnamon, cumin, pepper

1 tsp coconut oil

1 handful of coconut flakes for topping


Put 2 eggwhites, coconut milk and the spices in a small bowl and beat until fluffy. Set aside.

Mix 1 eggwhite with half amount of the chickpeas and blend until smooth. Set aside.

In a skillet, melt coconut oil on medium heat.

Add zucchini.

Add the mix of eggwhites/coconutmilk/spices plus eggwhite/chickpeas, stir gently and then let cook for 5-8 minutes, covered.

  1. Can we have a full day of tropical foods.. my tropical smoothie for breakfast, this for lunch (or dinner).. and um, we need to create other meals for the rest of the day 🙂

  2. This sounds awesome!! I love the combination of eggs and chickpeas…so tasty :).

    I am more of a “medium” girl. I like some spice but not TOOO much.

    Love it!!
    I love putting nuts in my salads, but I never though eating them with eggs! Thanks for the idea, sweetie 😉

  4. Looks delicious, Lucie! Especially with the coconut. I’m such a wimp when it comes to hot food. Not only does my mouth hate it, but my stomach isn’t a big fan either. I figure that we’re already so hot that we just can’t handle any more heat 😉

    Yummy, sweet & savory, love the combo! I’ve been putting shredded coconut on lots lately, my fav is a rice cake with nut butter, banana & coconut. Enjoy your day Lucie 🙂

  6. I definitely need more curry in my life…it’s so good but I rarely ever eat it!
    I am all about the spicy foods whenever possible :-p

  7. I love coconut in ANYTHING + almost everything! This sounds so good I will have to whip up some this week! Love + Shine CourtStar

  8. This looks amazing, Lucie! I love the combination of tropical flavors–especially the coconut oil–with the eggs and chickpeas! Talk about a nutritious AND delicious meal!

    I like my food medium–spicy enough to provide a kick, but not so spicy that my mouth is on fire!! I once bit into a chili at a Thai restaurant, and it was the worst experience! My mouth was burning for four hours afterward! Haha.

    Hope you’re having a fantastic week, lovely! xoxo ❤

    • Oh my GOD!! I hop that never happens to me, I would desperately suffer! I am a medium too, but more on the medium-mild. Lame, but I just like to taste the food and not just the spices….

  9. Oh my gosh girl, this sounds AMAZING!! So many wonderful flavors! Did you use curry paste or powder?

    I am a total WIMP when it comes to spice…I can’t even handle medium salsas! Definitely mild for me! Lol

  10. This sounds freaking amazing! Ahhh I’m such a fan. I’m a mild girl too…spicy foods hurt my belly. I do think, however, that though we eat mild, we ARE hot. 🙂

  11. Holy yummmmmmmmmmmmy!!!! Pinned it! Thanks for linking up to #RECIPEFRIDAY! 🙂

No filter. And no one ever tells me again bullshit like that CrossFit makes me look like a man. Left side, 1998 (19y), ~60kg, in an abusive relationship, fueled by a daily dangerous skinny drug cocktail which almost killed me and hours of cardio, no lifting and an oh so fucked up mindset. Right side, 19 years later today (39y), ~68kg (~8kg gainzzz!!). Recovered from 20 years of extreme disordered eating and drugs; and passionate about CrossFit. A healthy mind (pretty much at least 😏😉), a healthy body, freedom and a joy of life I had never experienced before. To be alive and healthy is a fucking miracle. I've always been a stubborn kid and I never half-assed things - contrary, I went and still go full-ass with everything I did and do - which also led me to extreme addictions. But it also allowed me to fight through suicidal thoughts and hurdles. Yet, if you want to overcome something so incredibly strong and stubborn like an Eating Disorder you have to be stronger and more stubborn and to want it with all your heart and to give everything you got. If you are willing to let go in favour of your health, then get your shit together, you can do it. It's possible, I'm the living proof. Trust your strength and never stop believing. And for fucks sake, no one ever goes trying to make me feel embarrassed about my muscles again. I'm not. I'm perfectly ok, just like everyone else. #nojudging #crossfit @crossfit #fightforit #muscles #health #trusttheprocess #believe #eatingdisorderrecovery #awareness #support #loveyourself #bodyimage #fullass #getshitdone #loveyourbody #recovery #addictivepersonality #drugs #overcoming #bulímia #anorexìa
