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

I’m usually too full for any dessert, so I’ve been having 1-2 pieces of dark chocolate after dinner. Baby is taking all the room down there! 🙂

Food: food this week

Last week’s breakfast combo has been: orange, soy milk and a protein cake

IMG_7219

topped with coconut butter. For the protein cake I use: 1 whole egg, 1 egg white, 1/2 cup pumpkin, 2-3 tbsp coconut flour, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tbsp cocoa power. Mix everything and microwave for 3 minutes.

Love it! 🙂

Wednesday night we invited some friends for dinner. We went to a new vietnamese restaurant close by, Four sisters. We were 5 and ordered the fix menu for six.

I loved this salad, fresh and spicy. I think I devoured half of it before anyone else even tried it.
