Dinner

Efterårssalat // Autumn salad

Hejsa! Hold da op, hvor går tiden hurtigt, når man har efterårsferie! Jeg har virkelig prøvet at være produktiv, og det er faktisk lykkedes mig rimelig godt (hvis jeg selv skulle sige det). Det er så rart med alt den ekstra tid! Jeg er kommet foran med mine afleveringer (2.g-livet er hårdt..), jeg har ryddet ud i mit tøjskab (nu er der plads til massere af efterårsshopping, haha), og så har jeg selvfølgelig givet den MAX gas med træningen! En anden ting, jeg har nydt, er muligheden for at spise lækker, frisklavet frokost! Det er altså bare hundrede gange bedre end en lunken madpakke. Derfor vil jeg da også lige dele min efterårsferie-favorit frokost med jer!

Ingredienser:

  • en lille smule olivenolie
  • snittet hvidkål
  • revet gulerod
  • en peberfrugt
  • kyllingetern
  • dressing: cremefraiche(6%) og ketchup

Fremgangsmåde: Svits hvidkål og gulerod i lidt olivenolie på en varm pande. Skær peberfrugten i tern og bland den med den varme hvidkåls/gulerodsblanding. Arranger salaten i en fin skål og top med kyllingetern og dressing. Super nemt og super lækkert!

Hello! I have had vacation this week, and it has been great! My big assignments for the following weeks are done; I have cleaned my closet (now I have space for autumn shopping! Lol), and (most important of all) my muscles are so sore from all that work in the gym. Also I really enjoy getting to eat a fresh, delicious lunch instead of my lukewarm lunch packet – and of course I will show you my autumn-vacation-favorite lunch!

Ingredients:

  • A tiny bit of olive oil
  • Cut cabbage
  • Grated carrot
  • A bell pepper
  • Chicken pieces
  • Dressing: crème fraise (6%) and ketchup

How to: Fry the cabbage and the carrot in a bit of olive oil on a hot pan. Cut the bell pepper into smaller pieces and mix it with the cabbage/carrot mixture. Arrange the salad in a cute bowl and top with chicken and dressing. Super easy and super ymmy!

Cabbage wraps

Hey Guys

Today’s recipe is on pointed cabbage wraps with avocado and chicken. The wraps are perfect for lunch or as a light dinner. Instead of using tortilla wraps we use cabbage leaves – this brings some crunch, and it saves us a lot of calories! (Which we can add to our dessert ;-)).   Ingredients (1 serving):

  • Two big pointes cabbage leaves
  • ½ avocado
  • Two big tbsp. of cottage cheese
  • Some chicken leftovers
  • One medium sized carrot
  • A little salt

How to: Peal your leaves of the cabbage and clean them carefully in cold water. Wash the carrot and grate it – then put it in the cabbage leaves. Mash the avocado and mix it with the salt and the cottage cheese. Arrange the guacamole on the grated carrot. Cut your chicken to pieces and put it in the wrap. Roll the wraps together and VOILA! Bon appetit!

Is it okay to say no?

Hey Guys,

In my class we have traditions. We always buy candy in the Café when writing big assignments, and at our birthday we always bring cake. If I am to be 100% honest this doesn’t fit into my life style, not at all. I must admit that I often say no hanks. Not because I want to restrict my self – but because I don’t feel the need to eat either cake or candy in that moment. Years of eating healthy have cured me from my cravings, and I simply don’t need to have sweets several times during the week.

Most of the time my friends accept me. It is (almost) approved that I bring a big salad for lunch and that I workout six times a week. But when I say no to a piece of cake there will be hell to pay! Suddenly everyone has something to say about my healthiness. ”It’s okay to have something unhealthy once in a while, you know that right?” and ”Oh but you work out so much – why can’t you treat yourself?” they ask so judicially. It is like they immediately think I have an eating disorder or something. Every time I assure them that I’m OK ”Yes I do treat myself sometimes” and “yes I do know that I can eat a piece of cake without becoming fat” It’s like I have to apologize. I hate that.

Some years ago, when I began my healthy journey, my relationship with food did become partly unhealthy. I restricted myself some foods, and it came to effect my social life. One day I sat down and looked myself in the mirror. I told myself that this was not what I wanted! So I changed it.

Today I have found balance. Treating myself is now a choice – not ”cheating”. It is just so annoying that I have to protect and apologize for my choices and beliefs. I don’t judge them for having the cake – so why do they have to judge me?

This is something that I have been thinking about a lot lately. I accept that people choose differently than I do myself. They can have as much cake they want – that is not my business. I just really wish that they would also start accepting me.

Cabbage salad with fresh fruit

Dear fit family!

I really don’t have time for this, lol. I’m going away for the weekend with my classmates and some other students. We’re gonna party all day and all night long, we’re gonna drink alcohol and we’re probably gonna eat a lot of junk food.. To be honest I don’t want to go. I just want to stay in my bed, eat some dark chocolate and go to the gym tomorrow. Actually I don’t like alcohol and the way people force you into drinking it. It’s like you can’t be a part of the group. So yeaaah sure, I’ll drink have some drinks and lose up a bit.. But I won’t eat the junk! I have brought some of my own food – just as a supplement to the nachos with fatty cheese and white bread.
Okay, actually this post is not about my hatred against junk and alcohol.. It is about an amazing salad that I made the other day for my family! J So fresh and ymmie!

Chicken meatballs with Parsley

Hallo fitfriends 😉

It is such a long time ago I have had time to experiment in the kitchen. I spend all of my time going to school or work, doing my homework, working out, or sleeping! Today I got off at 11-30 am, and I went to the gym straight after (Cardio day..). On my way home I bought the groceries and prepared everything. I really do enjoy cooking – think I’ll have to give it more priority in the future.
Some of the stuff I made were these chicken meatballs – they were great. I wanted to bake them in the oven, but of course our oven broke down just as I turned it on.. The pan also worked fine though.

Ingredients for 14 meatballs (3-4 servings)

  • 400g minced chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1 grated onion
  • LOTS of parsley
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • (2 tbsp. olive oil for the pan)

Mix all of the ingredients gently in a big bowl.
Turn on the pan (middle heat) and add the olive oil. It is important that the pan idn’t too hot because then the meatballs will stick.
Use a tablespoon to form little meatballs and put the on the pan. You can flip them once in a while, so they don’t get burned. (The cooking time is approximately 30 minutes.)
Then enjoy!

Greek inspired salad

Hello my healthy friends!

Image

I’ve been on vacation with the family for a few days. Just me, my brother, my parents and grandparents in a little summerhouse on the countryside. I tell you – I was so nice getting away from all the stress. In steed of worrying about school and homework I’ve been walking on the beach, relaxing on the couch and eating a whole lot of my grandmothers delicious food. It’s impossible to eat 100% clean while living in the same house as my grandmother! Haha! And you know what? It’s okay to treat your self once in a while – as long as you get back on track afterwards! Yeaah, so that’s what I’ll do know – get back on track with this lovely salad! Enjoy!

Ingredients:
–       5 big tomatoes
–       ½ cucumber
–       1 red pepper
–       ½ red onion
–       120g feta cheese (I used flavored)

How to: Cut your vegetables into coarse pieces and arrange them in a (pretty) dish. Top the salad with thin onion rings and feta cheese.

Flourless cauliflower pizza

Hey GUYS!

Pizza is unhealthy?? Uhhh.. No? I don’t think so?

Image

It is actually a few weeks ago I made this pizza. One of my girls was telling me how “eating healthy” is just sooooo boring and NOT tasteful. So, what do I do? I invite her over for dinner to prove her WRONG! I made her this ymmie flourless pizza and she LOVED it!

Ingredients:
–       1 cauliflower
–       ½ zucchini
–       3 egg
–       3 tbsp dried rosemary
–       2 tsp salt
–       100g finely shredded parmesan cheese
–        3 cloves of garlic (pressed)

Topping:
–       Tomato paste
–       4 tomatoes
–       125g Serrano ham
–       125g fresh mozzarella

How to:
Remove the stick from the cauliflower and cut the rest into smaller pieces. Put the pieces in a blender and mix until it looks like rice. Grate the zucchini finely and mix all the ingredients in a big bowl.
Spread the mixture on a baking pan with a baking sheet. Make sure the mixture fills out the entire pan. Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes (200 degrees Celsius).
Meanwhile you can prepare your toppings. Basically you can use whatever you want! My favourite is ham, tomatoes and fresh mozzarella (sometimes also pineapple!).
When the pizza base I baked you can add your toppings. Then put the pizza back in the oven for about 20 minutes (depending on the toppings).
Serve with fresh salad and enjoy!
