What I Eat In a Week

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing with you an entire week of food that I ate. Recently I have been trying to cut down carbs a lot more and also incorporate more fresh veggies into my lifestyle. I thought I would share all of the food with you and maybe give you a couple of ideas for dinners.

Breakfast

So for breakfast this week I had a variation of the same thing and that was some kind of yoghurt with granola and fresh fruit. I had blueberry greek yoghurt three times this week and the other two just some plain greek yoghurt with honey. At the beginning of the week my fruit was mango and red grapes, but I ran out of mango on the third day, so I added banana instead. The granola is store-bought and I used about two tablespoons, because I only realized this later at home but it was very high in carbs and sugar. But two tablespoons were more than enough to keep me full for a long time.

What is your go to breakfast?

Lunch

Now for Lunch I had these two, and the other days I either skipped lunch or ate granola bars. The only reasoning behind it was that my Uni hadn’t had any healthy option nor something that I would crave so I substitute my lunch with bars and some fresh fruit. I know that is not ideal but what would you do if you didn’t bring lunch. Alright on Monday I had a mixed salad with two eggs. It consisted of mixed lettuce, bell pepper, tomato and feta cheese and a side of green asparagus. It was delicious!

On Tuesday I had a rye whole grain bun with some lettuce, a tomato, an egg and some cheese. And it was the best sandwich I had in a while, it was super delicious and as I am writing this I am thinking to myself that it would be nice to eat this now. Haha xD

What is your favorite lunch? Do you have any ideas for lunches on the go?

Dinner

On Monday evening I actually skipped lunch, well not necessarily skipped it, but I fell asleep before I could make dinner, because I hadn’t slept the day before. That’s why there are only for dinners here. It’s not in chronological order but I will pretend that it is.

On Tuesday I had some bulgur with mixed Italian style veggies with chicken breast and a little bit of sweet and sour chili sauce! This definitely was the highest carb dinner this week, because of the bulgur and also because the veggies were frozen and had added some things that made it a little bit more unhealthy. But I didn’t have the time nor the energy to cut up some veggies.

On Wednesday I had a turkey burger, sweet potato and green asparagus. Topped with some light hollandaise sauce and of course sweet and sour chili sauce. I made the burger myself, I just added an egg and some rye flour to eat and seasoned it.

On Thursday I had pasta (was craving it) with chicken and mixed vegetables topped of with a self-made sauce and feta cheese. For veggies I had zucchini, bell pepper and green asparagus. The self made sauce consist of non-fat yoghurt and sweet and sour chili sauce. It was a nice change to the normal topping.

Last but not least, my Friday dinner. Was definitely one of my faves this week! It consisted of some rice, bell pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, corn and green asparagus, topped with a self-made tomato sauce and chicken. The sauce just consist of mashed tomatoes with salt, pepper, basil, parsley and oregano.

What I Eat In A Day – Summer Edition 2016

Hey my loves,

it’s time for another ‘What I eat in a day’ post… I haven’t done one for a while so I thought I would share with you what I’ve been eating recently! I’m currently on a vegetarian diet just to see if I look and feel any different without eating meat, if you like me to I could write about my experience, just let me know in the comments.

Alright, let’s dive into the food:

Breakfast – Berry Muesli with fresh Raspberries

Breakfast.jpg

This breakfast is so filling and tastes absolutely amazing! The berry muesli consist of wholegrain oat flakes, mix of dried berries (raisins, strawberries, raspberries & currants), whole wheat flakes, dried apple, roasted buckwheat and sunflower seeds. I used vanilla soy milk and some fresh berries to complete my breakfast.

Lunch – Cheese, Egg & Avocado Sandwich

What you will need:

2 slices of toast

1/2 of an avocado

a few cocktail tomatoes

1 egg

1 slice of cheese

1 lettuce wrap

salt & pepper

ketchup

I love this for lunch. It’s filling, tasty and gives me enough energy to last ’til Dinner. You throw your bread in the toast while frying an egg in a pan on medium heat, season it with salt and pepper and then you start to layer it all on top of the bread. You will start with a spread of avocado, I mushed mine together with a bit of s&p and a squeeze of lemon juice, then the lettuce follows. On top of that goes the sliced tomatoes and the egg. Then add your cheese and spread some ketchup on the second slice of bread and top it of! And last but not least enjoy this heavenly sandwich for Lunch or Dinner.

Dinner – Cheese Tortellini Salad with fresh Vegetables

What you will need:

handful of arugula

handful of lamb’s lettuce

handful of lettuce

handful of cheese tortellini (boiled and cooled)

2-3 sliced radushes

1/4 of a bell pepper

some crumbled feta cheese

Dressing: oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper, agave syrup

Just throw the ingredients together and top it of with the dressing and enjoy this healthy and filling salad! You can obviously add or change up your vegetables and greens! That’s just what I had leftover in my fridge! I love making a salad with added tortellini or even sometimes with a bit of quinoa! It definitely adds something else to your salad!

I hope you enjoyed this entry! If you did make sure to give it a thumbs up! I would really appreciate it! What are your go-to recipes for summer? Tell me in the comments.

This is one of my favorite breakfast. It’s filling and definitely something healthy and nutritious to start your morning with. Here’s what you need:

  • protein bread (or wholemeal toast)
  • 1/2 of an Avocado
  • 6 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • Salt and Pepper

I like to toast my bread it makes the whole thing a lot crunchier. Then I spread half of an avocado on my bread with a fork, I used a bit of half the lemon to squeeze over the avocado and then layered my halved tomatoes. I like to season my avocado on bread with some salt & pepper.

Lunch
