Happy Wednesday and happy WIAW! Today I am working from home again and I am so happy about that. This morning a painter comes to fix our windows. I actually don’t really get why a painter is doing that and not a window maker (if there’s such than a window maker) but I don’t complain as long as our windows are fixed in the end.
It’s my 4th and last week doing the Whole 30 now 😀 I have discovered some great paleo recipes and I am also experimenting with my own. A whole new world. It’s always amazing how creative you can get when you’re forced to leave out some ingredients.
Let me show you some yummy dishes I enjoyed yesterday.
I thought I might get bored with 4 weeks of TIT BAKE but I don’t :-D. Yesterday I made a snowy mountain tit bake version aka covered in almond butter and shredded coconut. Not really whether coordinated but totally delicious. I dropped off Stefan at his workplace and then I headed for the Gym! We did some lifting and I loved it. Front Squats were on the plan and we tested out our 2 rep max. I ended up with 37,5 kg (~83 lbs) at my first ever front squat session. I am so pleased with that! My mood was over the moon for the rest of the day 😀
When I arrived at the office afterwards I had some stuff to do immediately and I postponed my hunger with a cup of coffee. Around an hour later I had lunch. Zucchini Spaghetti with my Quick Bolognese. And as a liquid dessert I had a can of chilled coconut water. Best ever! My two colleagues and I had lunch together and we had a nice and funny chat about hot Crossfit guys 😉 And we marvelled about the fact that one of our fellow box members looks like 40 instead of his real age of 56. Amazing! Even the guy who’s almost my father’s age is kinda hot (what is somehow a disturbing and disgusting thought)
I worked my way though a pile of last pre-vacation to-dos and around 5 pm I got really hungry. One of my favorite and almost dessert like snacks is a chopped banana with almond butter and shredded coconut. So good and it definitely fights any sweet cravings. Though my cravings are more on the salty side at the moment 😉
When we came home Stefan went to his soccer practice and I went to the kitchen to prepare dinner and lunch for today. As everything is just so much yummier in mini version than in its original size. Think of Mini Quiche, Mini Burger and of course Mini Schnitzel… so the dinner idea was born: Mini Schnitzel with Sweetpotato Hash Browns. Again I crusted the Schnitzel with a coconut and almond curry crust. I definitely found my favorite crust ever.
The hash browns were amazing and I made a fantastic looking Hashbrown Lasagne with the leftover Quick Bolognese. Recipe to come on Friday 😉 Do you want a sneak peak? Okay here you go:
Later we watched the World Cup Semi Finals. I swear I never saw anything alike. Not only that Germany literally destroyed our host Brasil with 7:1 they even set two new records! Miroslav Klose now is the record holder of the most World Cup goals and this was the highest semi final scoring ever. Literally epic!
Now it’s time for work and a second coffee. Have a fantastic Wednesday <3
What kind of sports do you watch?
Why is every tiny food better that its bigger brothers/sisters?
