Here’s How I Eat

(The link for instant download)
I worked hard all winter to sketch down my menu, do all the calculations and read tons of scientific articles. I did all the work with these points in mind:

my eating habits must provide my body with all the vitamins every day! As usual, I saw how 80% people around [...]

Playing With Strategies

Everyone has their opinion about what I should eat, what I should not eat, how I should work out, how I should not work and so on. Thus far, I guess that about 70% of anyone’s opinion has been wrong. That includes me on the topics I know nothing about. It happens, because most knowledge [...]

Strawberry Chicken Salad

Here’s another variation in my chickpea/strawberry salad lineage. This time I tried it with red kidney beans and chicken. Very juicy. The recipe follows.
Also, if you’re interested, I uploaded the meal plan I created (with all the recipes and the complete shopping list) here. It’s downloadable and it’s free;)

I enjoyed every bit of it except for the last bit, because 200g of this cake (sugar, butter and [...]

I did well on Monday & Tuesday

Reporting back after 2 days of following a preset menu.
On Monday I did well and followed the menu to the point: Choco Coco Oatmeal with slight modifications for breakfast (oh, this was heavy but SO yum!) and coffee w/ 50ml 2.5% fat milk (which is my one addiction that I have given up giving up [...]

Yummy meal plan for next week

I have developed a new habit for Sundays: I amuse myself with drooling over yummy recipes, making efforts to decide what to eat next week. Planning the week ahead saves me lot of energy, because I absolutely detest shopping. It’s much less pain doing it once a week and going to she shop with a [...]
