CARB CYCLING TAKE 2.

Hi, blog!

Last few weeks have been very busy! Uni is full with group work, assignments and exam studying. AND! I’ve got a new EXCITING job! My dream job in fact. And you guessed it, it is nutrition related. I will tell you more about that later.

Anyhow, if you follow me on my facebook page you know I decided to do the carb cycling diet all over again as I got the flu the final week. So I’ve started on it again this week, and I am going to be more strict about it this time.

I decided to start off with 3 days of juicing and all natural foods. The reason why is to get myself into a fat loss state of mind, meaning I want to see results quick to keep myself on track and motivated. And just by a day 1kg down and feeling leaner! It’s soon summer folks!

Bought myself a juicer over the weekend, and I must say, it looks great in the kitchen and it makes amazing juices.

To find out the recipe for this juice above, have a look at my Facebook page!

MY FAVORITE BREAKFAST – PROTEIN PANCAKES

Hi lovely people!

Hope your life is great and your health is even better!

I’m just over 2 weeks into the carb cycling diet – and I’m honestly finding it a bit hard (and not really showing any results). I find myself changing the low carb/high carb days all the time as a reason of meals out or other social things I have to attend. One thing for sure is that having a low carb on Friday is not a clever option for me. I know this diet is a good weight loss tool – however I think you have to be a bit stricter than what I have been so far. Will updated more later!


Moving on, I have shared this before – but this is cannot be shared enough! My favorite breakfast ever. Or lunch. Even dinner sometimes.. Protein pancakes! I eat these all the time! Even when I’ve been on a bikini prep!

RECIPE:ย 

1 scoop vanilla protein pancakes

40-50 g oatmeal (just normal oats mixed into flour)

2 egg whites (you can also cut out the egg whites and just use milk)

1/2 tsp baking powder

Cinnamon/Cardamom

Any kind of milk (or water) until you get the right consistency. (try little by little) (I use coconut or almond milk) PS! If you have added too much liquid, don’t worry! Let the pancake mix settle for a few minutes and it will get a thicker consistency as the oats works like a sponge!

Mix together in a food processor. Spray with 1 kcal butter spray on a medium to hot pan – in the pan until golden on each side, serve with bananas and strawberries (my favorite) or any fruit or berries and have a SUPER healthy high protein breakfast to start your day.

NB! Make sure you have a good quality whey protein for a better flavour! Some actually taste horrible.

CHICKEN IN COCONUT MILK AND SOMETHING ELSE

I have a great passion for cooking and the kitchen is certainly my happy place. If it’s either baking, cooking, for myself or loved ones.
To eat good is important for me. After all the chicken and vegetables I’ve consumed the last few years, I’ve figured out few tricks how to make my meals like a every day luxury.
And lucky for you I am going to share one of them with you today.

We all have had dry boring chicken. Ive got the best trick how to get your chicken delicious and juicy! And its easy and cheap. Simply oven bake your chicken in coconut milk. Man I’m telling you the chicken will be the most juicy chicken you’ve ever tasted. And prefect for us who prep chicken in larger quantities.
The only thing you need is coconut milk, salt, pepper and herbs or spices. I would recommend to ass quite a lot of herbs(I used thyme here) and spices to get a nice flavour on your chicken. As the coconut milk doesn’t really add too much flavour, its more for the juicyness. Bake it in the oven for about 40-45 min on 200 degrees. I would also recommend that the coconut milk should cover all the chicken.ย  Or the bits that stick out will get a bit dry, unless you turn them around half way through cooking time.

Another thing that is OUT OF THIS WORLD, is having a parsnip purรฉe as a side dish. Not only is this a great substitute for mashed potatoes(or potatoes in general if you want a low carb option), but it taste a hell of a lot better than mashed potatoes if you ask me. Its high in fiber and a decent amount of plant protein as well! This is truly something you want on your dinner plate. And the best part, it’s so easy to make and very cost-effective!
You need:
  • 2 1/2-3 Parsnips
  • 1 generous tsp butter
  • ca 30 ml cream or milk(if using milk boil it before and set a side)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Garlic is optional
Peel and cut up the parsnips into small pieces, boil them for about 5-7 min in salty water until tender. Add the parsnips, butter and milk/cream in a food processor and blend until you get a very smooth and creamy consistency. This is so easy.

CHIA PUDDING

Happy Thursday folks.ย 
Today I’m spending my day inside, covered up in comfy clothes and blankets. Yes you guessed it, this lady have managed to get a cold. How on earth I’ve gotten this considering how much vitamins and minerals I’m currently consuming is a mystery. However, I do actually easily get a cold. I’m a very cold person and I can sit in a room shivering while my boyfriend sits in a t-shirt and I’m freezing underneath a blanket. Why that is? You tell me.
