Let’s obsess a little over each other’s eats! Yeah, stalking. One of our hobbies, right? Admitted.
Thanks to our lovely hostess Jenn, our stalking genes can be released at least one day a week!
Ok, so a quick intro – I came home from Prague on Sunday and spent hours with unpacking my stuff. We don’t need to discuss this, right? I was also excited to throw myself into my new homewear. Adidas Hoodie (LOOOOVE!!) and shorts. Cotton shorts are the piece of clothing I wear the most throughout the year. Even in deepest winter I run around in my shorts and barefeet at home. #beachgirlatheart #ihatesocks. And yes, my hair is messy, I am aware of that.
On MONDAY, 7am, I was picked up by my Bestie Jonas to go snowboarding. Crazy Easter.
But wait – it’s What I Ate Wednesday, and I wanted to present you some of my eats I had in Prague. Actually, we didn’t eat out nearly as much as we thought we would. Which does not mean it was less delicious.
Before the long ride, I made sure I packed a lot of food. I mean, 6,5 hours? I made my Coconut Oatmeal Bake in CAKE form, Protein Chocolate muffins and packed berries, apples, carrots, hardboiled eggs and licorice. Of course in my pink Fitbox, which I LOVE.
So after a day in the Outlet stores and cheering with champagne, I went on a long run along the ‘Elbe’ when the sun came out and then used the nearby gym for a lifting session. The views at the river were stunning…. As said, we stayed at the house of my Mom’s boyfriend (he lives with her in Switzerland but is Czech, and owns a house here). The village where we stayed is really small – accordingly, the opening hours of the gym are a little different than what we are used to. They were open on Friday from 10-11. No, not am to pm. am to am. ONE freaking hour. And it costed about 2$ for the workout. So simple, so good. There was all I needed for a kickass upper body workout and a quick leg circuit – though the Czech guys were a little irritated as to what the hell this Swiss blonde Chalet was doing with their barbells. I guess they were talking about me, but I had no friggin’ clue anyway – I don’t understand one single word from this language. They gave me the You-are-a-stranger-but-you-have-boobs-so-we-accept-you-kind-of-look. I didn’t mind. Cause I was busy thinking about breakfast.
Then we headed off for Sight Seeing and Shopping. I set my eyes on these….
Ok, I stop now. While strolling through the masses of tourists, we munched on this Czech speciality: Rolled sweet grilled bread. Gosh, it’s to die for. Covered with sugar and cinnamon and oh so doughy.
Then lunch – Friday, we found a very cool place where they offered infused water and smoothies. You bet I was excited! The smoothie was made with Vega Protein, Pineapple, yogurt and flaxseed. How did they read my mind??
For Lunch on Saturday, we went back to the same place – so creative, I know – but I just LOVED their menu and they had a nice sunny terrace where we had a great view on people and the city! We ordered more of the detox waters plus I went with a salad nicoise – salad greens, eggs, tuna and olives with a side of dark toast. Momma ordered a baguette with smoked ham and mozzarella.
For dinner, I improvised. I wanted to make some kind of a bake – I always make bakes when I’m lazy, cause their so easy and give time for predrinks while baking – so I placed salmon in a casserole dish, and covered it with broccoli, spinach, mushrooms and eggwhites. Topped with dry smoked ham. It was delicious?! Seriously, it was worth a big pat on my back. Post dinner was spent on the couch, reading and watching TV, with a side of leftover Eastereggs.
Ever had Czech cuisine? That sweet bread? It’s SO good!
What’s your favorite fruit/veggies to put into water? I love cucumber, mint, ginger and strawberries.
Favorite snack on the go?
