Last week I posted my fitness & health routine where I told you that I have made the decision to simply go back to my semi low carb diet I was doing before I went wheat free. On top of that, whenever I do eat pasta, bread or the like, I will make sure that it is wheat free from now on. In a way that means I’m combining the two. And to show you some more food ideas of what I tend to eat, I took some pics again. I’ve been trying some old favorite, new combinations and I even had porridge for the first time in my life. Here’s what I ate these past 2 weeks.
P.S. I really enjoy doing these type of posts. Let me know in a comment below if you do too and I will see if I can make it a weekly or biweekly thing.
My new favorite breakfast cereal: super food mix with assorted raw nuts. In this mix you can find: goji berries, mulberries, inca berries, cranberries, raw cashew nuts, raw almonds & raw hazelnuts.
I used it in two slightly different breakfast meals. On the left you can see Greek yoghurt, kiwi fruit, flaxseeds, agave nectar & superfood mix. On the right you can see plain yoghurt, superfood mix with assorted raw nuts, kiwi fruit & flax seeds.
I’ve been adding flax seeds to my breakfast every morning now and it’s doing wonders for my stomachaches.
My new favorite late morning breakfast: buckwheat porridge! On the left you can see it while it’s still cooking. On the right you can see the finished product. I was going for a bit of treat here with raisins, dark chocolate sprinkles, honey, cinnamon & flaxseeds.
Another favorite breakfast which is a bit more simple: Greek style yoghurt, honey, flax seeds, walnuts, kiwi fruit. I’m also digging my Greek style yoghurt lately.
Another late breakfast which I had before working out. I decided I needed a bit more to keep me going that morning and went with a 2 egg omelet, which I fluffed up with cream cheese, added fiber throughflax seeds, and some avocado and cheese for some extra nutrients.
The simplest home made salad: cucumber, lettuce, cherry tomato, olives, walnuts and goat’s cheese.
This requires some work, but it’s super delicious: cucumber, cherry tomato, olives, blue cheese, cashew nuts, and marinated cajun chicken salad.
And another super simple one: lettuce, cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, corn & feta cheese salad.
Healthy pancakes for lunch! Banana-egg-oat pancakes with cinnamon & berry nut mix. Yup that’s right, no flour needed to make this delicious meal.
If you need a lunch that fills you right up you can go for this avocado, cream cheese, cucumber, pickles, onions, capers, and tomato salad. I added half an avocado, a heaping table spoon of cream cheese and some left over veggies that I had lying about. I used to make this with mayonnaise, but opted for cream cheese this time as I thought it would be better and it was!
Yummy dinner for which I paid a heavy price. I had this creamy salmon, zucchini, leak pasta two days in a row which resulted in a day of stomachaches and nausea. It was delicious though and well worth the price.
I love make shift dinners. When I have no time to really cook and plenty of food in the fridge I tend to simply throw things together. Here you see my left over dinner which included mature Gouda cheese with some mustard, olives, rice cake with apple spread & some left over protein shake.
And another make shift dinner: raw herring with fresh cut onions (it’s a Dutch thing) and some bacon & eggs with nutritional yeast.
All of these shakes I had in combination with one of the meals you can see above, or I had them as lunch.
The one on the left is a strawberry, raspberry, banana protein shake. On the top right you can see a banana, kiwi fruit, apple, chocolate sprinkle, honey, avocado, protein shake. And the bottom right shows you a cherry chocolate protein shake. When I say chocolate I mean that the chocolate comes from raw cocoa powder rather than chocolate sprinkles which I also use. That has to be my new favorite addition to shakes.
Do you have any meals that you would like to see from me?
