Hello everyone, how was your weekend ? Mine was pretty low key, I got to read, exercise, watch a movie… and cook. I was feeling motivated and made 3 new recipes.
I started off Saturday morning meal planning. I had peppers, carrots, cauliflower and zucchini in the fridge that I did not want to go to waste. I had a couple recipes I had cut out of a magazine a while back, and had also made a list out of the 21 Day Sugar Detox cookbook that I had wanted to try. On my meal plan :
- Chili (new)
- Zoodles (zucchini noodles) with meat (which meat depended on what I saw at the supermarket)
- Veggie pancakes (new) & bacon
- Fish & frozen veggies
- Carbonara pasta (for my kids)
- Cauliflower crust pizza (new)
I went grocery shopping and only bought what I needed on top of what was in my fridge. The mushrooms looked good, I figured I could use them some how.
I was overall really happy with my recipes, even if I did not follow to the letter my plan.
Cauliflower crust pizza, during and after. You shred the cauliflower, steam it, mix it with some cheese and an egg, bake it a bit, top it off then bake it some more. It was the first time I tried it. I had read several on line recipes before improvising my own. I would have cooked it a bit more because I wanted something a bit crunchier, but IT WAS GOOD.
With all the shredded cauliflower I made cauliflower curried “rice” (21 Day Sugar Detox recipe), with fish and veggie pancakes. I used my carrots, shredded them, mixed with an egg and a bit of coconut flour, then cooked them in a fry pan. Even my husband liked them.
I also made chili. It was good, but could have been spicier.
I also made carbonara pasta for my girls, and we had our first strawberries of the season.
I exercised both days. Got a fabulous run in on Saturday. It was really nice out and I just kept going. 11km. It was probably a bit much because my foot hurt this morning so I decided to go to the pool. I swam laps for an hour.
I worked on my blog, trying to figure a couple things out. I am not yet successful but am working on it ! I also took advantage of the warm weather, read and got to enjoy my coffee on my balcony. My geraniums are growing, a definite sign of spring as well as those Cherry Blossoms in the background.
A great weekend overall and its amazing to think that I have been blogging now for three months. Thank you for reading, I appreciate it.
