What I ate today… Monday 5th of August 2013

Hi,

Who might have expected that during maternity leave you have little time? Well, definitely not I.

Waiting for the baby, I decided to start a new category of my posts mentioning “what I ate today”…. Basically I want to share with you what is on my dish.

People who know me, know that I am very slim and I have never been overweight.

I hope that sharing with you my healthy lifestyle, you can get some inspiration and perhaps loose a bit of weight… Who knows…

So starting today, I ate the following:

BREAKFAST:

A sandwich with butter, ham, cucumber, salad and half of cottage cheese with a cup of green tea.

May is the best time for eating asparagus. You can eat it until mid-June. In the Netherlands people eat white asparagus. The most known dishes made of asparagus are boiled or steamed asparagus with hollandaise sauce and ham. I decided for something else…

–          3 leaves of chives

–          1tbsp. crème 15%

Know-how:

  2. Peel asparagus and cut into 3
  3. Peel onion and divide for 2 pieces
  4. Add vegetables to boiling water
  5.  Peel ginger and rasp (leave unwanted fibres behind); add to soup
