It’s What I Ate Wednesday!!

WIAWbuttonI don’t know about you, but….I am excited today. Why? It’s my last day at work until TUESDAY!! Tonight, I will drive off to a road trip with Mom to Czechoslovakia. WTF, you ask? My Mom’s BF is Czech, and he owns a house very close to Prague. Now he stays here and works, while we go there on a Ladies-Sports-Wellness-Shopping-Prosecco vacation. I don’t complain.

WAIT. That’s not all. Since last Wednesday, I’ve been waiting for the decision on an appartment I was looking at to rent. AND. I. GOT. IT. It is one of the most beautiful and perfect appartments I ever looked at for me and they picked ME!!!!!!! I am OVER the moon. Guys – the kitchen is as big as my current appartment. HUGE. Country-shabby-chic-style. A dream. With big windows and a big balcony right there and tons tons of light. I will be able to go back to the times when I hosted legendary kitchen parties at home with the neighbourhood and all my friends. (Don’t judge me for thinking about partying prior to cooking).

Those were the days!! They will be BACK!!

But before I we get all too excited here, I join in on today’s WIAW – thank you Jenn for this weekly host!!

I will present my meals from Sunday, cause somehow they did not fit in my Monday post.

Soooo, Sunday. I slept in until about 8:30 and then went through my morning routine – yes, I even do this on weekends. A little preworkout snack……

Gluten Free Breakfast Biscuits

Gluten Free Breakfast Biscuits

I had my workout date with Vanessa at 10 am – we went for an 8k run and then practised handstands and Double Unders (Jump Rope) in the street. I added a little WOD later with 3 rounds of squats, pushups, single unders and sprints. I know, I posted this pic already on Monday, but you have to look at it again. HandstandYou and I can NOT even believe how ready I was for breakfast after:

Eggwhite Coconut Berry Oats.....

Eggwhite Coconut Berry Oats with cacao quark…..

....with a huge pot of green tea on the side.

Then I did things…..ya know these days when time goes by and 2 hours later you feel you were busy, but somehow forgot what you did? No? Ok, then it’s me getting older or blonder. Anyway – I guess it included blog-reading/work, laundry and so. (Gosh…)

The important thing is, that I had lunch in the middle of the day. Do you have those days when lunch happens at 3:30 pm? No? Ok, I am officially weird. But who cares about my weirdness when I tell you about this delicious omelette I made….

Asparagus/Tuna/Eggwhite Omelett....

Asparagus/Tuna/Eggwhite Omelett….

.....with a side salad.

…..with a side salad.

It was soooo good, and it MUST happen again soon! And YES, I love the burnt touch on it! I actually thought about making a video tutorial for omelettes. Who wants to come and film me? (Silence)

Damn.

Ok, sorry. Then you will have to make your omelettes on your own……

After ‘lunch’, I met up with a friend to have some important chats and tea/coffee in the sun. It was 20°C outside and I could smell summer!! good_morning_coffeeDinner was a holy mess of white fish, veggies and plain minced tomatoes, aka tomato sauce.Fish, VeggiesNope, this wasn’t the end of the day yet. I made sure I get my chocolate bomb in for the day. Cacao Stevia Quark with Almond Butter and 1-3 pieces of my all time favorite dark chocolate (this one is actually meant for cooking, but I eat it like this.) Did I mention I am not normal?IMG_1806 ChocolateHave a fantastic day sweeties!

Are you sure you don’t want to make a video of me while I cook an omelette? I swear I’ll behave (as much as I know how to).

What do you eat preworkout IF you do? I normally don’t, but 10am is too late in the day not to eat beforehand.

Be honest: Dark, Milk or White Chocolate?

  1. I just made an omelette for dinner! I will totally come and film you, mine never look as pretty as yours!!

    Pre/post workout snacks are my struggles at the moment…usually a banana but feeling the need for more protein and the idea of taking a boiled egg with me makes me shudder:/

    Dark dark dark😀 speaking of chocolate *scuttles off to the kitchen*

    • Hahaha, oh Pip, I love you🙂 I could use some dark chocolate right now as well!

      Hardboiled eggs aren’t my favorite either, what I do I bake some protein muffins for the week, so I have them for pre/post workout! You can include the banana – perfect!

  2. So happy for you, lady! I have to admit that the kitchen was one of the reasons I loved my current place as well😉 You better be giving us a home tour when you get it! And I don’t really discriminate when it comes to chocolate, but I will say that milk kind of owns my heart… I loooove that it melts in your mouth. Omg. Want. Now.

    • Oh I will totally do that!! I can not wait until all is set and looking nice….
      I love milk chocolate too. Currently I am more on a dark kick, but that is until the white bunnies make their appearance here🙂

  3. WAHOO- Congrats on the new apartment, Lucie…that’s fantastic news!! Hope you cracked into a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate.

    Love how hearty your omelets always look so PLEASE make a tutorial- flipping ’em is always so hit or miss for me!! Cooking chocolate or not, chocolate is chocolate so keep eating! While I hate to discriminate, dark chocolate ranks top for me! Especially after doing Whole30, I find milk & white a bit too sweet….that said, I still eat them if dark is not an option ha :)!

  4. CONGRATS !! You so deserve that apartment!!:) I love your approach to eating and health. It’s spot on with foods I love and how I bake/cook/view food. I don’t eat meat or eggs, but still love how healthy you eat and how much you use coconut!:) Plus, you’re the first person that actually has me intrigued to eat quark. Unfortunately, you can’t find it anywhere around here:( Oh well! I’ll look at yours and dream instead:)

    • Oh thank you Heather for your nice comment! I love all things coconut🙂
      Quark is very similar to greek yogurt, so maybe just try that with cacao and stevia – so good!!

  5. Enora says:

    Bravo for the flat! Thats a great news! And so cool for the big kitchen!!
    I can come and Film. I guess it Will take me only 2hours drive. On my way😉
    Chocolate ? Dark dark dark!!! Love it!!!

  6. excuse me but I believe that I demanded an omelette tute months ago so it better happen- I even got cable internet to watch the damn thing!

    Ohhhhh Czech!!! Please do a recap- id love to go there! pre workout- no dice. unless its after breakfast😉

    • Yes you did honey!! It’s YOUR idea actually. But currently I really need someone to film me since I am single again. AND I will probably wait until I moved into my huge kitchen so I have enough space to freak and mess around.
      I will do a recap for sure! I love it there!!

  7. Haha when Eric and I were searching for our current place, the first thing I would look at was the kitchen😉 there was another apartment that we really liked, but the kitchen was the size of a closet so…that one didn’t pan out😉 And I’m making omelettes for dinner tonight! Now I wish I had asparagus…love the idea of throwing that in an omelet!

  8. I used to always be a white chocolate fan but now I am a DARK chocolate fan not sure what happened and its def not for health reasons but dark chocolate and me are BFF’s🙂 Have fun with your Mom on your girls trip and enjoy lots of champs! Lots of Love C

  9. Dark chocolate, always dark chocolate. Glad you got the apartment!!! Is it sad that when we picked our apartment I did it based on it’s natural light? #foodbloggerprobs

  10. Would you please stop teasing me with asparagus?! Thanks to you I was -this- close to buying that imported-from-Spain but reduced price green asparagus. If only I wasn’t heading to my parents’ tomorrow with hardly any time to use up a whole bundle.
    And I already let you know but it bears repeating: I’m so happyyyy [cue Pharrell Williams] for you getting the apartment! We need to make plans for a visit and have an epic cooking session in that kitchen. I – no, all of us – need to see pictures come June! Or earlier if possible.

    • Don’t tell anyone, but most of the asparagus I buy is imported – I know it’s not good to buy it, but I just love it too much😦
      And thank you lady – I agree, we MUST meet up and cook some epic vegan stuff!! With a little cheese on top!🙂
      I present pics as soon as I get some!

  11. Healthy Diva says:

    YAY for getting the apartment, so happy for you! The bigger kitchen will be amazing!

    Love ya girl!❤

  12. I can’t wait to see pics of this new apartment! It sounds perfect for you! A big kitchen is definitely a requirement for me when I get my first one. That omelet – oh lord. I mean as long as it tastes good! haha I thought maybe you battered and deep fried it? hahaha

  13. cottercrunch says:

    does this mean you’re accepting long visits now? i’ll eat lunch at 3pm if that means i get that!

  14. Does the tuna in the omelet not taste funky? I’ve never thought about doing that. Salmon is a typical thing to go with eggs, but I’ve just never thought about tuna. Hmm I might have to try that out. Your breakfast looks so delicious.

  15. Kierston says:

    Eggwhite Coconut Berry Oats with cacao quark…..looks so good!

    Congrats on the apartment!

  16. Cora says:

    Okay but WHAT is your secret to getting your omelets to look so… sturdy and solid!? Deeeelicious! Your posts are always wonderful and have been helping me a lot… just wanted to say a big thanks (and hi!).

  17. That mess of fish wants to swim into my mouth, and the same thing goes for that tuna, asparagus egg omelet!!! HOLY YUM YUM!

  18. I’m so glad things are looking up for you! Have FUN!!!
