Hey you all and happy Wednesday!!
It’s midweek and this only means one thing – FOOD PARTY! Celebrate with me WIAW – What I ate Wednesday today!
Thanks to our lovely hostess who doesn’t miss one WIAW even with a newborn at home, whoa!
I must say, that I am so proud. So proud of my co-workers!! Since we have a lot of chocolate and cookies laying around here in the office, I was always hesitant to bring some of my healthy treats as I did not know if they would be annoyed – like:’ Oh Gosh, now she wants us to stuff with her ecological-greenie-crab – no thanks’……So on the officetrip I softly started to talk about kabocha and how delicious it is when roasted etc…..and I felt some interest. So I took the risk and brought a tupperware full of the deliciousness
after I stuffed my own face with half of that huge thing. To make sure it wasn’t ONLY healthy, I brought some maple syrup to dip too 🙂
AND? They loved it! They polished off the whole serving in one afternoon and I was so happy! I think I created kabocha obsession in Switzerland which is rare to find if you’re not into Healthy Living blogs! Considering that we do not celebrate Thanksgiving or Halloween, pumpkin and squash recipes definitely aren’t that popular here.
I still start my day with hot lemon water followed by Apple Cidre Vinegar mixed with a little fruit juice. It definitely does my tummy good.
Other than that, it was my usual protein shake/smoothie at the gym while getting ready for work.
A little later, time for breakfast!
On lucky days, I manage to fit in a Yoga class over lunchtime. I absolutely LOVE it. Since I got away from the thought that Yoga must be ‘as challenging as possible’ for me to consider it a workout, I can really enjoy it. Rather than looking at it as a workout, I love to enjoy it as an hour of stretching, relaxing my sore muscles, getting some meditation in, BREATHE and enjoy it as a nice change to my intense workouts outdoor or at the gym.
This does not mean I am less hungry after….lunch is needed!
Chicken spinach wrap with flax/oatbran flatbread:
You bet I had some crack for dessert.
This held me over well until dinner, which was:
Oh, and you know what…I totally held these hilarious pics back from you. Bahahaa, Sandro and me were laughing TEARS when we looked at them. We actually wanted to take a pic of me jumping like this:
…but that’s how many of them turned out like ( I am dying only by uploading them):
Haha, oh Gosh, it was TOO funny.
So that’s it for today! Have a lovely and healthy day friends!
