Good morning and Happy Wednesday!
I’m glad it’s midweek – this week’s been crazy and I can not wait to step on the plane and head off to BERLIN on Friday!
But first, let’s stalk each other’s eats. Cause that’s one of our favorite thing to do, right? Thanks to our hostess, we can do so at least once a week.
Before I show you my Monday food, I want to explain the mysterious nutbutter I was crazy talking about last week. It’s very rare that I can find something here in Switzerland which my American and Canadian friends don’t know – so I thought you NEED to know about this. This butter is made of the tigernut, also called chufa sedge. For more info check Wiki:
Besides all the healthy benefits, this is probably one of the BEST nutbutters I ever tasted – and that should mean a lot! It’s naturally sweet, which makes a spoonful of it the perfect dessert.
Enough of that – here’s a Monday of eats.
Then my bikeride to the gym. I am now on week 2 of the Body Earned Program by James Wilson and I LOVE it. Nutritionwise it’s not very new to me, but I love the big variety of the weight lifting workouts. So much fun and so challenging.
Postworkout – Protein Shake with supplements. I am hooked by the Growing Naturals Protein! I hope it will become easier to order it online.
2-3 hours later it’s time for breakfast – eggy berry oats in a tupperware sprinkled with TVP for additional crunch. Looks weird, is SO good.
Dessert and the rest of the afternoon was snacking on these – I love this recipe, it’s so quick and they are so easy to pack! Also, you can play around with flavors – so far I made vanilla, chocolate, berries, cinnamon, banana or apple – whatever you feel like, just throw it in and bake. The recipe is from Kierston and I make it probably 3 times a month.
I finished work late and when I got home, my purse, shoes and clothes flew into the corner and my homewear came in handy – there was nothing more I managed to do than relax. And cook.
That’s it! Monday Food!!
Do you eat after dinner? What is your favorite dessert / bedtime snack? I used to have the strict rule not to eat after dinner. But since I do fasted and very intense workouts early morning, I need something later in the evening. And quark is something my body handles perfectly before bed.
What was the last thing you baked?
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
