Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are doing well. This blogpost is a bit late but i guess better late than never.

From looking at these items you will have a wild guess as to what my meal is likely to be

This week my meal plan has a flavour and twist to it. I also bought some ingredient for my smoothie, for more details check out my previous post on ‘what’s in my smoothie?

IMAG2165.jpg

I am not sure if i have mentioned this but every morning mostly monday to friday i have a warm water and lemon in the morning to ensure last nights meal has been eliminated. I drink this with a straw for the sake of my teeth.

This week’s meal plan

I have two options:

– Turkey Fajitas

– Lamb, potatoes and vegetables

Thats all for this post. Until next time it’s #HappyCooking.

Another 5 a day, vitamin packed smoothie for the week. 

I know i have craberry juice in the picture. I totally forgot to get coconut water so i was thinking to use that juice but due to the sugar content, i was a bit reluctant.

What i did was use water in the first blend with a bit more cinnamon to make it drinkable. I tasted the first blend without the juice and i liked it so decided to use water and more cinnamon. Will do this going forward.

IMAG2211

Switching it up this time round. I think now that i know it tastes nice with water i will use water. Seeing that some of this fruits already have sugar on them.

Until next time, happy smoothie making.

Just in case you didnt know… Take this as a kind reminder 😝

Hello and welcome to my blog. I recently blogged about building up my home gym. As the snow has all melted away now, i was very excited to hear that it will be nicer over the weekend but it was not what i saw when i looked out of the window.

IMG_20180324_093040

It was wet and grey but i went jogging any way. Pic is not clear because i was jogging when i took it

I am assuming it will get better over time during the day. I prefer my jog or run in the morning so i had to go. It was about 5 degrees and drizzling so im sure people in their cars thought i was crazy.

PhotoGrid_1521899489994~2

I set out later than i intended to because my fone was low on battery. In total i did 6.68 mile in 1hr 15mins 37 secs. The app stopped after my first lap so had to start again. 

I usually do not replace the calories i burn when i go jogging or running. But i will try to replace them going forward.

IMAG2119

Replacing the calories i used with this brunch …

imag2097.jpg

It is nice to have a nicely shaped body but you need to ensure you are healthy inside because this will show on the outside too.

IMAG2086

Take good care of you from the inside. You will have a lot or enough energy to complete a lot of things you need to do during the week. It keeps you motivated.

It is important to do some form of exercise to stay healthy whether it be running, walking or jogging: do something. Healthy living or lifestyle involves your contribution. A lot of sickness can be averted through regular exercise and better eating habits.

I will come back with another blog about why i jog or run.

Until next time, #EatWellFellGood and #Workout.

There is chicken in the oven

Balanced Diet, Cooking, Food, Healthy Food, Healthy Meals, Uncategorized

Hello and welcome to my blog. As always this blog is well overdue. I started writting and could not get back to finishing it off.

This is the recipies for my chicken.

IMAG2041

The ingredient i usually use if i dont make my own which usually include raw galic, onions, ginger black pepper

What you need is a bit of yogurt, black ground pepper, cayenne pepper, a pinch of salt and olive oil. You can add any other herbs you have.

imag2040.jpg

– Mix well in a bowl before that, clean the chicken with lemon to get rid of the rawness.

IMAG2042

– Marinade the chicken well with the mixture. Cut some marks in the chicken so the marinade will get in the chicken. I let it marinade over night because i could not be bored to stay awake for it to cook lest it get burnt. 😊

IMAG2048

Slow cook in the oven its its cook. I usually leave it in the oven at 100 to 150 for 1hr and cook somemore if need be.

 

Thats all folks. Until next time its bye from me.

Vegetable Orzo with turkey…

Balanced Diet, Cooking, Five A Day, Food, Lunch

Hello and welcome to my blog. So this post is about a revisit to a past recipe that a friend introduced me to about 4 years ago.

Orzo is a pasta shaped like rice. You can have it however you please room temperature or warm and obviously you can decide which vegetables to use.

IMAG1699

The ingredient i used. I used one whole red bell pepper and half green pepper.

I seasioned and steamed the turkey then fried the red and green bell pepper. When this was first introduced to me it was with pork but i opted for turkey instead. You can use chicken breast if you please.

The final product ith olives and parmasen cheese.

Until next time is bon appetit
