Oh hello there and happy Wednesday!
By now we know what happens – it’s What I Ate Wednesday, a day where we share all our meals of a day.

Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
Thank you JENN for hosting this weekly and fabulous food feast!!
Now I have to apologize. My cam is in Zurich and winterlight is the nightmare of food pics. Also, I ate a lot of my meals on the go which made it even more difficult to take decent pics (imagine me taking a pic of my breakfast from different angles in the train……hmm, not so much). So all I got are some less than ideal iphone pics of my meals from Monday.
Early morning in the train – a buckwheat coconut crumble. I mixed 1 egg, 2 eggwhites with buckwheat flakes, 2 tbsp coconut flour and blueberries and cooked it in a skillet. It was so strange, but definitely delicious. I can not get over how delicious coconut flour tastes with eggs!
I planned to go to my Yoga Class over lunchtime, so I wanted something to kick my energy and had 2 of these babies. I know, I’m teasing again – Friday is recipe day.
Yoga was blissful as always. Though I’m always starving after – lunch at 2pm is definitely a late one for me. I threw together baked chicken with salad greens, balsamic vinegar, cherry tomatoes and had homemade hummus with more cherry tomatoes on the side. Yes, I know, green tupperwares make these pics even worse!
Later in the day, hunger and cravings hit. I try to be better with my stress eating, which is especially difficult as our office is always PACKED with sweets. On Monday I gave in and had this little chocolate bar – OMG I LOVE Torino chocolate!! It was worth every bite. It’s one of the BEST Swiss chocolate brands, I swear.
After work I went to my Crossfit Class – And here’s what we did:
- Running / Bodyweight Circuit (Push ups/Wall Balls – Sit ups/Wall Balls – Squats/Wall Balls)
- Strength (5×3): Sumo Deadlifts / One Arm DB Shoulder Press (sitting) / Bench Back Row
- WOD: Time: 150 Russian Kettlebell Swings / 75 Toes to Bar (or Elbow to Knee)
Success: I lifted 70kg Sumo Deadlifts (I think this is 154,5lbs) and I managed to do 10 elbow to knee in a row!
I’d love to have some pics from Crossfit, but I always feel so odd taking pics or telling someone to take pics of me. Maybe when I’m there a little longer 🙂
Clearly, I was dead after that. I managed to gulp down my Growing Naturals shake including supplements before I cycled home so at least I had a little kick. At home, I was ready for dinner.
I snacked on some baby veggies while preparing dinner.
I mixed my prepped veggies with tuna which was again mixed with a little spiced up soy yogurt. Sweet Potato under there somewhere.
Of course that wasn’t enough and I had a bedtime snack with protein powder, PB2 and a little soy yogurt mixed – but by then it was so dark and aside from that it looked so gross – I couldn’t possibly post a pic of it.
And that was my Monday! Happy Wednesday!
Do you eat a lot of your meals at work?
Ever had Torino chocolate? If not, you are definitely missing out and should come to Switzerland and enjoy some together with me.
What is on your menu today?
