I wrote before about replacing eggs with applesauce for pancakes. Today I didn’t want to bother and just cut up some apples, added cinnamon, water, sugar and lemon, put it in the blender and voila! It worked and turned out to be beautiful.
So I am slowly starting to think about strategies to keep my weight. I had stopped counting calories and just ate whenever I wanted. However my weight keeps going down and I want to keep a bit of reserve. So I have to start thinking about making sure I get enough.
I only want to track a day and get a better feeling for it. So … it’s simple: calories burned I got to eat. Now looking at thw numbers I do start to regret walking around in town and going for a run …
So I improved the lime, flaxseed yoghurt by putting in as many calories as I could find that would taste good.
The result is an impressive yummie 865 kcal super drink.
Do you have any calorie bomb secrets that I could try?
I’ve been so lazy lately and making this almost daily …
I usually have whole wheat pittas in the freezer or can make/buy some and they are the base.
Switch on oven to 180°. Mix loads of tomato paste, some vegan parmesan (nutritional yeast, spices and blended cashews) and some sugar.
Wash spinach and mix with a little olive oil. Cut onions mix with oil. Assemble by cutting pittas in half, smear with tomato mix, put spinach loosely on top, decorate with onions and put in the oven for 10 minutes.
I never was much of a breakfast person and am rather happy with my coffee. Somehow now with all the changes that have been happening, I am getting hungrier earlier. I try and drink a glass of water first thing and then coffee. After I got my run in and some work done I end up in the kitchen. Lately I got used to just picking out the fruit that has to go, slice it up, mix lemon juice with my sweetener of choice and sprinkle them with seeds. Top combination is pumkin seeds with mango – bitter sweet.
Somehow I can snack on this and enjoy it. It also feels like my body is quite thankful for this boost after my run and my brain turns into overdrive.
