Paella in Calella…

Standard

Hi,

2014-06-27 15.20.46

I couldn’t resist to share it with you… We were in Spain, Calella and I ate the best ever paella. We ordered it at the beach and the result was far better than expected. The presentation was very good too… What do you think?

Do you like paellas?

What I ate… Thursday 15th of May 2014

Standard

Hi,

 

There are days that I don’t know what to eat and I don’t want to eat. This Thursday was such a day.

When I woke up I already knew it’s going to be an unusual day…

 

BREAKFAST:

I started my breakfast with yoghurt and muesli.

2014-05-15 09.01.01

 

SECOND BREAKFAST:

Before going to swim I decided to eat at least some bread. I didn’t feel like eating my own bread so I decided for quick carbs and fat. I ate toasted hamburger bun with butter, cheese and pickles. To drink I had a half liter cup of tea.

LUNCH:

For lunch I had another half liter cup of tea and an apple, bread with butter and double cheese, pickles, plus fried German sausages with Mexican ketchup and mustard.

2014-05-15 14.39.59

 

DINNER:

I was full and I didn’t feel like eating anything heavy. This dish reminded me times when I was young. Cooked potatoes, carrots, cauliflower and asparagus, topped with butter and breadcrumbs, and served with a fried egg.

This picture isn’t so aesthetic, I ruined my egg while serving in on my dish… Well, it happens! :)

For drink I had Belgium beer, Kriek MAX:) I love it!

SNACK:

As this day was pretty different from what I eat normally, and I really didn’t feel like eating a proper supper, I decided to treat myself with two spoons of Cote D’or Milk chocolate.

Summarising my day… It wasn’t sophisticated at all. It looked a bit trashy but that’s how I felt as well. I think it’s pretty human to have these days when you absolutely don’t want to invest any time and energy in cooking, and even worse, you don’t know what you want to eat! Luckily the day after I had my taste and energy back…

Hi,

 

On 14th of May it was my two year anniversary.

2 year anniversary

I still remember the day when I put my first post :)

As working mom who loves sports, I have very limited time to put any other posts than about my baby.

 

As recently said, I want to write at least one post per month. That’s good for now on:)

My head is full of ideas and I hope I finally will find time to share them with you. I hope in the next year my blogging adventure will be more exciting!

what is next

Let’s see what the next 12 months will bring “on my dish”.

 

Hugs to you all!

Cheers,

Anna

What I ate… Thursday 24th of April 2014

Standard

Hi there,

 

It’s been a very long time since I’ve written a post. As you know I became a mother and my little, cute baby boy took all of my attention away.

04-09-2014-Anna with Leon

Work, sports, household activities, cooking, friends and the baby filled all my free time.

My head is full of ideas and I’d like to share these with you guys. It’s a bit too early to get to the point where I wrote all these nice and very detailed posts but don’t worry, I’ll get back to this!

For now on, I’ll try to update you guys with what I eat. I’ll try to place a post at least once a month and if possible a bit often.

I hope you’ll stay with me…

 

 

So, let’s get started.

BREAKFAST:

Thursday is my day off and I had a chance to sleep longer. But no, unfortunately I awake very early today! Guess why? I was just hungry!

To begin my day properly and feel good about myself, I ate two slices of bread with Philadelphia natural spread and salmon. Next to this, I ate a bit of lettuce and cucumber. To drink I had green tea.

2014-04-24 07.20.58

 

SNACK:

Before getting to a swimming pool I decided to eat some little snack: green olives, Gouda cheese and Italian sausage.

2014-04-24 09.32.50

After this I ate some one orange and grapefruit. It was delicious!

2014-04-24 09.33.27

 

SNACK 2:

After swimming pool I went shopping. I took me a bit longer than I expected. I had no food with me besides my son’s rice waffles with apple cinnamon taste. They are very small but big enough to survive until lunch:)

2014-04-24 20.26.03

 

LUNCH:

I ate a piece of bread with butter and cottage cheese with yoghurt and radish. To drink I had just water.

24-04-2014

 

DINNER:

Once I moved from my old house, I had to stopped with biological vegetable packets. Unfortunately this service was not available at my new neighbourhood. After a year I found a new one, jupiii! It makes my meals so much interesting!

This week I got turnip tops :)

2014-04-24 17.20.54

I decided to make a salad out of it. I added pickled vegetables (onion, carrots and red paprika), onion, olive oil, and salt with pepper.

2014-04-24 17.37.13

I decided to serve this great super healthy salad with lamb cotelette topped with cheese, and fried potatoes with eggplant, leek and crème, spiced with curry, salt and pepper. To drink I had cultured buttermilk :)

SUPPER:

Those who know me, know that I mostly eat sandwitches for supper. Today I ate two slices of bread with butter and ham. Served with two tomatos, a bit of chopped onion and yoghurt; spiced with salt and pepper. To drink I had black tea.

Hi,

 

I just want to shortly update you and share the reason why I stopped posting.

I became a mom. I have very limited time at the moment. I need some time to get used to the whole situation but as soon as I am more comfortable, I’ll come back to posting!!! :)

 

Happy Mother

Hi,

Well, I again felt like consuming a lot of milk products.

BREAKFAST:

Toasted German white bread with olive oil, mozzarella and cucumber. For drink I had home-made raspberry-strawberry milkshake (no sugar added). Yummy….

LUNCH:

After hard workout at the swimming pool I felt like eating exactly the same, a lot of proteins and sugar from fruits. Therefore I decided to eat the same as for breakfast.

Well, the only difference was an extra carrot:) The rest wast the same: toasted German white bread with olive oil, mozzarella and cucumber. For drink I had home-made raspberry-strawberry milkshake (without sugar).

DINNER:

Something yummy again… penne with golden zucchini, dark opal basil and garlic with fried fish. A glass of cultured butter milk.

Hi,

So the chance that my baby boy will be a Leo is just gone. It’s 24th of August, that means it will be a Virgo. Still good, right?:)

LEO and VIRGO

 

Getting back to the point… See below what I ate on Saturday:)

BREAKFAST:

Again I woke up very early. That was definitely not a time to eat a proper breakfast. Therefore I choose the same as yesterday… A bowl of milk with raspberry juice,  and muesli.

LUNCH:

Two sandwiches with butter, cheese and cucumber. An apple and plums.

SNACK:

We were shopping in the local grocery shop and we saw ice creams made of farmer’s diary…. Hmm… Since I’ve never tried an ice cream like this, I decided to give it a chance. It was a vanilla ice cream with milk chocolate and almonds. Well, it wasn’t MAGNUM. It was definitely less fat and it tasted more healthy, if that makes sense…

PRE-DINNER:

I was so hungry today, I had to eat an extra sandwich before dinner. White bread and melted cheese with chives.

DINNER:

Beef goulash with carrot, zucchini, broccoli, paprika, onions, garlic , herbs, chilli and beer. The sauce was served with egg spätzle.

Hi there,

This time split for two. One part before workout- cherries; second part after workout- plums, nectarines with natural yoghurt and a table spoon of muesli. Then as “dessert” a slice of pumpernickel with butter.

DINNER:

Ahh yea… I know, the third day in a row I ate the same soup- cauliflower soup. What can I say… I really like this soup so I couldn’t waste any leftovers. Next to my little bowl of soup, I had a nice “treat”- two slices of Camembert cheese with two slices brown bread and hot tomato ketchup. To drink… as most of the days… two cups of cultured buttermilk.

TEA TIME:

Tea:) with a spoon of chocolate spread… Since I did workout twice that day I wanted to make sure I won’t loose too many calories. However, if you’re on a diet, I would skip that part… On the other hand… You can’t say “No” all the time to sweets, right???

chocolate spread

 

SUPPER:

I drank so much liquids that, I was too full to eat anything beside cherries. I love cherries:)
