I hope this week has been treating you well so far!
So today is a SPECIAL day!! My lovely Momma turns 60!!!! I am so happy to celebrate with her today and here’s to you Mom – I love you, you’re the BEST Mom I can wish for – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
After a rough start of the week, my funk disappeared just as appruptly as it appeared last weekend. Thank God. So this week had some great favorite moments in store for me. First, I met my friend Sandra at her place on Tuesday night and cooked for her one of my delicious bowls. This time: roasted salmon, coconut-cinnamon baked sweet potatoes, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, plus avocado.
After dinner, we moved to the living room, where she ironed her laundry and I chilled on the sofa while we chatted along all night. I loved it!!
I am so stoked by these healthy superbowls, I cooked even more of them almost every night this week.
Two other friends’ date happened, this time over lunch – first with my Bestie – we cycled down to the river and found a bench with a beautiful view. We both were born and raised in Basel, but we had no clue that we actually have a beach! Ok, talking about a beach might be a little exaggerated, but we take it.
On the same day, I found the first organic and clean packed snack in Switzerland. Dried fruit with nothing added! Love it!
Thursday lunchtime I spent with Billy! We went to Dean&David, my favorite salad bar near my office. I went for the self creation and added chicken, goat cheese, cucumber, artichokes and tomatoes.
You probably know by now that I am obsessed by my sweet eggy oats. I’ve been asked several time this week how I make them. I don’t even dare to call it a recipe, because it is SO simple and was mainly inspired by the two lovely ladies Sam and Amanda to combine eggs and oats.
So here’s the recipe:
1/3 cup oats (I take glutenfree oats)
1 cup water
1 heaped tbsp ground flaxseed
1/4 cup berries
a little salt
> Mix all together. Cook in a skillet as a scramble. Let it sit in the fridge overnight – it will be like a cold oatmeal bake in the morning. Heaven. Top with all your favorite toppings (Mine are: applesauce, almond butter (even better mixed with cacao and honey), chocolate chips – oh yes, I love to eat chocolate chips in the morning – crushed nuts, jam – the choices are endless!).
Speaking of toppings: Mom filled my pantry with her perfect homemade applesauce! HAPPY!
As for workouts: I am on a plan with nutrition and workout structure from a GREAT coach (a female, I talk about this later) from CA – but for the exercises and combining the workouts, I need a personal trainer who is training me face to face. I already talked about Markus who coached me for several years – and I couldn’t be happier to be back in training with him! We had a session yesterday to go through the exercises, creating my routines and working on my posture. We will only meet every 3 weeks to change up the workouts, but I am so motivated and feel so great with this structure as it makes me train efficiently without overdoing it.
Have a wonderful weekend, see you Monday!
