That’s true! Summer came back! Not super hot, but still – perfect with sun and warm weather to be outside. This is MARVELOUS!
Thursday evening, my weekend started. I took advantage of the sun and went for a cycling tour over lunchtime – coming Saturday I am going to ride crazy over the highest pass of Switzerland to Italy – need to get fit for that!!
Post cycling meal: Roasted chicken with cucumber, half-burned cauliflower and a sweet potato – I swear it is in this bowl somewhere.
Other happenings throughout this weekend – a surprise! I did another Foodie Pen Pal exchange with my lovely friend Heather and cause she did not tell me that she sent it off, I was totally caught off guard! It felt like christmas. Look at all this STUFF!!!! She even sent me some of her homemade Almond Joy Granola, oh yumm!!
Friday night I picked up the man from work and we strolled along the lake and stopped at the lounge. SO summerfeeling!
Saturday morning: Leg Day and Speedy Incline Walk for some Low Impact Cardio. The Boobsweat shows that it was a great workout. And my legs are dead’n sore.
Post Workout Breakfast: Heavenly Protein Pancakes. I made this recipe, but adapted it slightly (only the milk, really), here’s my version:
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/3 cup of oats
2 tbsp coconut milk
1/2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Blend all ingredients and cook in a skillet.
Topping: 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 tbsp sugarfree maple syrup – mix and add water until it is liquid enough.
Take 93747889 pictures (and upset your table partner because he/she is waiting for you to start the meal – but be selfish, because everyone’s know you are a friggin’ foodblogger and you must do this)
Stuff your face and freak out because it’s so darn delicious.
Sunday: we drove back to Zurich after the BBQ (I did not drink so I drove) and slept in on Sunday. The weather was nice, but not warm enough to lie on the lake, so we decided to grab breakfast and take the train to the ‘Uetliberg’, which is the ‘mountain’ (more like a hill) of Zurich. The view was breathtaking, but the iPhone shots just don’t do it justice.
Along with the view, I had my eggy oats with fresh figs and syrup…..hmmm.
The walk down and through the city back home is around 2 hours, so we did that. It was my restday, so a little walking was nice to get moving and catch some fresh air.
What was the best thing you ate on the weekend?
What do you do on your restdays?
Favorite season? SUMMER and then Spring. All year long, please.
