Food: quick meals

I’m less and less interested in cooking lately… maybe because I don’t have much appetite or I am just tired most of the time. So meals have been just quick and simple, but making sure I get all the nutrients, specially protein and calcium.

Breakfast combo have been all over the place. One day I wanted something sweet but didn’t want to spend time preparing anything elaborated. So, I had a big white peach (still loving it!), almond milk (for the calcium) and a bowl of greek yogurt with frozen straberries and flax meal

Some other day I had a breakfast frittate made with 2 eggs and 2 egg whites, spinach, tomato and mozzarella.

simply pour the beaten eggs into a pan until it’s half way cooked, top with the veggies and the cheese and bake at 400F for 10 min.

I should make this more often, it’s tasty and nutritious.

Dinners have been veggie loading because usually I’ll have a carb+protein for lunch at work.

Food: stir-fries

I’ve been living in stir fries this week. They’re easy to prepare and within 15 min a balanced nutritious meal is ready.

For breakfast I’ve been having almond milk with an egg sammie
