WIAW#30 – What I Ate Wednesday – it’s a Leg Day


31. July 2013 by swissfitchick

Good morning!!

Just a quick random thing – since there was no MIMM post on Monday and no pics of the weekend (the wedding of Sandro’s brother), I post very few now – I got them yesterday from the bride! Sandro was best man for his brother and it was a rare moment that day to have him by my side 🙂

But now on to the subject of this Wednesday……Welcome to another round of What I Ate Wednesday, the favorite day of us foodies, since we get to stalk everyone’s eats.


Head on over to Mrs Peas and Crayons to check out more great meals and foodspiration!!

Some of you may have seen that the #plantainlove exploded around the blogger world, thanks to the twins aka #plantainqueens! I had a hard time finding some, but last week I was finally successful!

Since Sandro and me are the grill-masters, we threw it on the BBQ, topped with some coconut oil and catfish on the side.


I made a fresh salad with it and added in some apricots – LOVE that fruit currently!!


I used the second one for my ‘brunch’ on Friday morning….

Cinnamon Roasted Plantain Chips, Spinach Eggwhite Omelette

…..and then returned to an old favorite lately for dinner – the Eggie-Shirataki-Zucchetti Bowl.

Dessert were a No-Bake Almond Joy Cookie and one of my Healthy Fudge Brownies:

Unfortunately I did not take my phone to the wedding on the weekend that’s why I have NO pic at all of the marvelous food we had! So I have to bore you with my ordinary meals from Tuesday aka my Leg Day:

Oats-Spinach-Eggwhite Omelette for breakfast – and half of an unpictured grapefruit on the side. I ADORE the combo of eggwhites and oats! Even better sweetened up with cinnamon and vanilla.

Post-Legday-HIIT (Did I mention that leg workouts are the ones I want to be over with asap? – Talk about Love-Hate-Relationship.) Protein Blueberry Smoothie:

Lunch: Chicken marinated in coconut milk and Mc Cornick California Chicken Spice-mix (unpictured) with a side of a small sweet potato and broccoli

Mid-afternoon Snack: Low Fat Curd Cheese with blueberries…

And dinner: Some leftover coconut chicken with brown quinoa, avocado and spinach salad drizzled with a dressing made of olive oil, acv, lemon juice and salad herbs. Super super delicious.

  1. Ha Ha, it looks like your sweet potatoes are standing up 🙂

  2. Ahh girl, you look GORGEOUS in all of your pictures! Glowing :D. And mhmm, those brownies look out of this world! Will be making soon 🙂

    Hi! You look great!! Nice pictures!
    Regarding fruits I love them all! I am addicted: mangos, grappes, peaches, apricots,… All! Especially in Summer!!
    Have a great day and nice 1st of August tomorrow!

  4. Gorgeous pics of you and Sandro! It’s been a while since I’ve tried plantains but cooking them in coconut oil sounds fabulous! Lately I am all over strawberries- please don’t let berry season end ;)!

  5. Well don’t you and Sandro just make a gorgeous couple? ❤

    I've never had plantains before, but I'm definitely curious about them. I think what puts me off the most about trying them is the fact that they feel so hard and tough, like unripened bananas, and I'm most definitely not a fan of those. But I'll give it a shot… one day 😉 Plain old bananas, on the other hand, I've been eating like crazy. I'm going to turn into a monkey soon.

  6. Love the pics of you and Sandro! Your dress is so cute!

    Mmmm…everything looks so amazing! I’m totally digging that eggwhite omelette!!!

    Thanks for the shout out! 🙂

  7. I’ve had plantains before, but I’ve never cooked them myself – only in chip form or out at restaurants! I’ll have to see what I can do with them at home though.

  8. I’ve made similar plantain chips before but hadn’t thought to grill em – will be doing that for sure!

    Mmmmm yum! Everything here looks so good! Wonderful food choices! My favorite fruit right this moment is grapes. And bananas are always a fave.

  12. Love the wedding pics! That is just way too funny that we both posted about plantains today… great minds think alike! 😉 I’m going to try mine cinnamon roasted next time.

  13. I love plantains but can never ever find them! Ever I mean I look every single grocery trip! The wedding looks fabulous, I love going to weddings they are always such a great time! You and Sandro are such a hot couple I love seeing photos of you two! Have a scrumptious week Lucie love you loads

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
