Oatmeal with skyr and strawberries

Hey fitfam 😉

It has been a while, huh? My excuse is the same as usual… I’ve been busy with school, homework, workouts, the academy, friends and family. Yes, it is tough being a teenager – or not actually… I get bored easily, and I love being on the run.
You probably know that I can’t live without my oatmeal? Most times I eat it plain, but sometimes I like to add some protein. You can do that by mixing in an egg or just an egg white – or you can add some skyr. Skyr is Icelandic high protein yoghurt (11g of protein per 100g!). If you aren’t able to buy skyr in your country you can substitute it witch Greek yoghurt or quark.

Ingredients:

  • 50g oats
  • 250g water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 150g skyr
  • Topping: 100g frozen strawberries

How to:
Cook the oats with water and salt in a pan at medium heat. When it is cooked you let it cool down for a few minutes. Then you mix it with the skyr.
I topped my oatmeal with frozen strawberries that I had heated in the microwave. Enjoy!

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!

Cabbage salad with pineapple and spring onions

My entire family is coming over for dinner tonight so I made this huge bowl of salad. I feel like I always serve salads with regular ingredients – but this one has a little different.

Ingredients (This is for about 4-5 people – I made two portions so the pictures are for about 8-10)

Dressing: 3dl crème fraise(5%), 3 teaspoons of Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice,  1 teaspoon of honey, salt and pepper.

Filling: ½ a cabbage, 4 spring onions and 150g of canned pineapple

Topping: a little parsley

Mix all the ingredients for the dressing gently in a big bowl. Slice the onions and cabbage thinly and cut the pineapple into smaller pieces. Mix everything together and arrange nicely – top it of with some parsley. Then serve!
