Let’s jump right into it. Thank you Jenn for hosting our favorite party of the week!
I get stared at a lot because of what I do. No, I am not crazy, but people obviously think so. For example, if I eat my eggy overnight oats with roasted kabocha at 6:30 am in the train. This is not crazy, but it’s #strangebutgood!
Or when I go grocery shopping with my bike after arriving at 7:30 in the morning and riding home with a packed bike like that. For me it’s normal, for some it seems to be crazy, the way they stare at my basket when I get to the counter.
Now let me tell you, even if I only run into the house to drop my groceries, and come back to head off to the office, I still lock my bike. The thieves are crazy, I mean THEY are crazy, not me. I once let my bike standing unlocked to go and pee behind a tree (RHYYYYYYYYME!!!) – WAIT, I need to mention that I was 18 years old and drunk – and when I came back, my bike was gone. That person stole my bike while I was passing water. Now that’s mean. And you’re right, it’s not ok either to pee behind a tree (I really like that rhyme).
Clearly, I digress. Back to the subject from today. I did get some good stuff on that early Monday morning:
I also brought my prepped meals I did on Sunday.
I am really thankful for the time I invest in meal prep every week. Coming home later that day, I went for a run in the forest, and before jumping in the shower, I threw my dinner into a bowl and into the microwave. I was clean, I was hungry and I had food. Bliss. Not strange, but still GOOD!
Purple carrots! I just love them cause they look so pretty. Pile on some hummus and have a perfect snack. Definitely #strangebutgood!
And I am officially CRAZY obsessed with coconut milk. Not only do I use it a lot to cook my veggies and proteins in it and eat it curry-style….
……I also found out, that Rooibos tea, especially the candy flavors from David’s Tea mixed with a splash of coconut milk and stevia taste like a decadent dessert.
…OR you can also bake these
moist delicious chocolate-apple-muffins I baked over lunchtime on Tuesday and dunk them in the coconut milk. WHAT. SO GOOD. Recipe to come!
I definitely deserved it – my trainer gave me new exercises for my workout structure and he definitely took it to the next level – unstable basements. This is so challenging, especially with heavier weights. This one here is cable squats into shoulder press while standing on the balls (Haha, I said balls!).
Oh, and unbelievable news! I switched up my breakfast!! CRAZY!! Ok, it’s just a slight twist, but it’s really good and I actually made it a lot in the past, I just forgot about it. It happens to all of us, right? Don’t tell me you didn’t rediscover how much you love nut butter (ok, that’s a bad one, how can anyone forget the love for nutbutter?)!
Eggy Buckwheat Porridge. That IS #strangebutgood.
It’s basically the same like the eggy oats, but it takes a little longer when you take the raw buckwheat groats. I cooked a big amount of them and then added eggwhites for about 3 breakfasts. Did I mention that I used almost one jar of cinnamon for that mealprep?
Happy Wednesday! Oh, wait, a little announcement – if all goes well, I will do the Throwback Post tomorrow. Loads of OLD pics – it’s WORTH to check in, promised 🙂
Do you do things that people think isn’t ‘normal’?
What food did you love, forgot about it and then incorporated it back into your meals?
