First of all – SORRY SORRY to all my blogger friends for my lack of commenting lately – craziness made its appearance around here and I would need at LEAST 30 hours a day. Please don’t think that I don’t read, cause I do!! I’ll be back in my normal comment patching all over your blogs soon, promised!!
Free from everything! That’s how my food feels like currently. So be prepared for 16 weeks of gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and egg-free food. And this is the last time I wrote this all out, seriously this is irritating.Anyway, welcome to today’s WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY with a day of free from foods and the recipe of my newest breakfast creation!
Breakfasts are my biggest challenge. You know how much I loved my eggy oats and pancakes – and I have yet to come up with an egg-free (gah, I wrote it again!!) pancake recipe. Flax is on the black list, but I can eat chia seeds and sunflower seeds! Yay!!
Nonetheless, there ARE options. Like a Protein Quinoa Porridge.
2 tbsp raw Quinoa
1 small Sweet Potato cooked (optional)
1 small apple grated
1 scoop vegan protein powder
1 handful blueberries
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground vanilla
unsweetened or sweetened chocolate chips (optional, but actually not optional)
Cook Quinoa as instructed.
1-2 minutes before done, add the protein powder, sweet potato and half the amount of the blueberries.
Stir in the spices.
Take away from the stove, pour the porridge into a medium sized bowl and mix under the grated apple.
Top with leftover blueberries and chocolate chips.
Ideas – add a banana instead of an apple for even more thickness and top with coconut butter!
I was surprised how yummy it is – I had this one after my intense 90 minutes trailrun on Saturday and it was the perfect carboload. If you want less carbs, just skip the sweet potato, but I recommend adding it, it’s delicious. And as we’re at it, it’s a recipe and it’s #strangebutgood – free from everyhting IS strange!!
The other possibility I thought of my breakfast is lactosefree no fat quark. Now yesterday I had my talk with the doctor and it is a nog o as well. Bye bye quark. He said, it’s not the sugar which is the problem, but the protein….oh well. I still had it on the weekend. I mixed it with a little protein powder, glutenfree oats, blueberries and added some of my homemade chunky applesauce on top. Nothing to complain about.
Snacking is no fun. I actually stopped snacking since the diet change, cause there’s just nothing that really appeals to me. I sometimes eat a little deli chicken. Or carrots. Yay. At least they are purple. I definitely have to work on some homemade stuff!
Lunch is cool! I have homemade salads as usual, and yesterday I went to Dean&David which is the saladbar near my office to have lunch with my ex-boyfriend (note: I do spend more time with Sandro than with my ex-boyfriends. Just sayin’. 🙂 )
I added some spices, vinegar and olive oil for dressing.
The other day, I made a tuna salad – canned tuna mixed with a little lactosefree quark, shredded zucchini and homemade hummus on top. I was lazy and didn’t add anything to the chickpeas except some water, salt, pepper and paprika. It was surprisingly amazing!!
And on Monday I went to Crossfit again. After destroying my shins past Wednesday when we had to climb up the rope, I decided to go for soccer socks. Maybe it looks stupid when a blonde mid-thirty wannabe Crossfitter chick wears an attire like this, but seriously? I don’t give a sh+++. I love them and they serve the purpose. To make sure they fit in colors, I bought 2 other pairs from Nike in blue and white. #fashionvictim #diva #sorrynotsorry
And let’s be honest, when doing this class there is NO WAY to think about your outfit. This was probably the most challenging WOD I ever did – it KILLED me, but I LOVED it. I love everything about it – the dirty place (dirty in a good way), the banging beats in the huge box, the sweat, the iron, the atmosphere. I’m hooked.
Warm up on top, WOD below.
FUEL was needed – and this in my new cute shaker. It’s so convenient with the little boxes to carry the powder and the supplements.
Dinner was hot and cold – smoked trout with green cauliflower and mushrooms and some lactosefree cottage cheese on the side (bye bye lactosefree cottage cheese as well) –
– and some leftover cottage cheese for dessert pimped with coconut butter and chocolate chips. I can eat coconut!!! I will probably eat so much coconut based foods that I will develop a sensitivity and have to stop eating it for 4 months. Baaaaaaaah!
That’s it!! Let’s take the creativity to another level!
Are you a pancake lover? I definitely am! I miss them!
What was your last workout you did?
What do you usually eat for lunch?
