Happy Monday all!
Last night’s dinner was goooooood. Cooked up some cod fillets with garlic, coconut oil and Turkish red pepper. Served with roasted vegetables, spinach, olives and runner beans.
I also did a bit of baking at the same time and made some banana and mixed nut muffins, much to Rob’s delight! I used this recipe and used mixed nuts rather than walnuts.
Today I had a bit of a lie in (as much as you can midweek anyway!) and had a yummy breakfast of omelette with tomatoes and spinach.
I wore a plain outfit of black trousers and black top, but wore this lovely necklace which I bought from Accessorize last year. I love the little parrot!
Lunch was roast chicken, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes and runner beans. Yum!!
Snack was sliced cucumber.
Dumbbell workout this evening with some foam rollering. This is so good! Love this piece of kit.
Dinner was a yummy chilli con carne with salad.
Chilli Con Carne, serves 4
- 500g minced beef
- Tin/Tetrapak of red kidney beans (or dried, soaked and cooked)
- Onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Mixed herbs
- Squirt of tomato puree
- 2 Tins/Tetrapaks of chopped tomatoes
- 1 or 2 red chillis, deseeded and finely chopped. (Or I use chilli powder and some crushed dried chillis)
- Dash of olive oil
- Beef stock
- Courgette, diced
Start by frying off the onion until soft, add the garlic and then the minced beef. Fry the beef until browned and break it all up while it cooks. Add the tomato puree, beef stock, shake of mixed herbs, chilli. Stir all together and then add the chopped tomatoes, kidney beans and courgette. The key to this is to let it simmer for an hour. This makes sure that all the flavours merge and it is tres yummy!!
I have a lovely evening in the kitchen!! My food processor has been on overdrive 🙂
I made some peanut butter protein balls, I didn’t make 8 though, I made 13. Rob really likes these for before a run, they are really good fuel.
I also made some frozen avocado nut cups, one of my favourite foods ever!!!
And finally I made some veggie burgers!! Phew! I will be back with those in another post along with the recipe.
I most definitely have my mojo back because I am back and cooking up a storm in the kitchen! Sad as it sounds, it is one of my favourite places to be. I need to sort out my larder and baking cupboard this week. Rob is very happy that I am back on form! Funny that!!! 😉
I am also very excited about the fact that I am going out for a run in the morning!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Going to have mug of this tea before bed! Love the picture, makes me feel so cosy.
Hope you all had a great Monday, don’t forget that I am going to be having a GIVEAWAY soon!!!
