Enter: More raw foods..

23 Jun

Hey hey 🙂

I’m preparing for a 4 day trip to Germany, Essen to do some shows for the same bridal brand ( remember Paris?) We’re staying in the Sheraton so I think we’ll be getting a good night’s sleep..(I think I’m gonna need it after standing on those heels again the entire day 🙂 ) And a darn good breakfast!! My favourite part of staying in a hotel is defenitely waking up and preparing to go to breakfast.. Especially if it’s a full buffet breakfast ha! 🙂  I usually try not to put everything on my plate but walk around for a bit and then pick out the healthy options.. ( Fruit/ yoghurt/ veggies/ muesli / dark bread and so on..)

Recently I’ve been trying to incorporate more raw veggies in my diet.. Since reading Sabine’sblog @ the fruitpursuit.com eating raw most of the time .. I’ve been wanting to do it myself as well.. Firstly because I’ve been feeling a bit off in the energy department and secondly because I just think it’s very healthy.. So I’ve been making some awesome salads! I’m also planning on starting to juice more, but I’m still browsing the stores for a decent juicer ( = not too expensive 😉 )

The best salad!

  • Spinach leaves
  • lentils
  • 1/2 veggie steak 
  • copped cucumber
  • chopped sweet paprika
  • chopped cherry tomatoes
  • chopped sundried tomatoes
  • sunflower seeds
  • garden herbs hummus

 

  • Green salad
  • cucumber
  • tomatoes
  • belgian andive
  • watercress
  • cherry tomatoes
  • northsea shrimps

 

After work yesterday, I was so hungry ( it was already 9 pm) that I didn’t want to spend a lot of time preparing food.. Enter: chocolate protein oats!

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon cacao
  • toppings: banana, raw cacao nibs, sunflower seeds

And not to forget a kiwi 😉

After Bikram yoga this morning I really craved a protein muffin.. And it was glorious!

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut flower
  • 1 grated apple
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 splash of rice milk

For the frosting I mixed one tablespoon of peanut powder with a bit of chocolate portein powder and some rice milk.. It was yammy! Put some banana and some raw cacao nibs on top et voila! Delish post workout muffin!

 

 

Snackage:

2 wasa crackers with ligth cheese and some smoked salmon..

Tonight We’re going out to celebrate my mom-in-law her birthday.. I’m thinking some kind of salad, I have to get my raw veggies in 🙂

I want out to buy these for her birthday: Swarovski earrings, you think she will like them? 🙂

 

Questions:

– What is on your wish list for your birthday?

– How do you incorpate veggies in your diet?

Paris recap and recent reflections..

14 Jun

Hi Guys!!! Guess who’s back? 🙂

( And then this song popped into my head:

Guess whos back, back again
Shadys back, tell a friend
Guess who’s back, guess who’s back,
guess who’s back
Guess who’s back…nanananananananananana

Alllllrightie then..)

I got back from Paris yesterday evening.. Unfortunately I didn’t even see Paris this time ( I have been there already 3 times, so I’ve seen the city already but damn, I wanted to see something! )

After I arrived there Saturday night, the taxi took us straight to the hotel.. I decided to go to bed early because the next day we had to work from 9 am until 9pm.. And believe me, trying out 300 wedding dresses and standing on heels for 12 hours isn’t a breeze.. I really had a good night sleep that night 😉

After that long day, the team went out to a Italian restaurant very close to our hotel.. I was so happy when everyone was in the mood for fish so the owner started to prepare some grilled tuna and white fish.. They gave us 7 plates to divide over our team and served everything on big dishes.. Very family style, I kinda love that! 🙂

On my plate: Grilled tuna, grilled peppers in olive oil, grilled zucchini and rucola salad..

After dinner I went straight to bed because the next day we had to work from 9am until 6pm and then catch the train back to Belgium..

The team decided to go to mac donalds, I really don’t like to eat there so I got an unpictured salmon wrap.. Much better 😉

Here are some piccies:

My colleagues 🙂

Acting goofy woofy 🙂

Having a 10 minute break because our feet were killing us 🙂

Acting silly again.. Try to find my colleague somewhere 😉

A fan is very much needed if you’re trying on a zillion dresses.. we’re feeling hot hot HOT! 😉

Our little hang out space  🙂

I also wanted to write a little piece on consuming dairy and veganism.. I know that in previous posts I wanted to eliminate dairy completely from my diet and subbed this primarily with soy products..

After trying this for a few months I have to say that I don’t necessarily feel better doing this.. When on the road or traveling as much as I am, it is soooo difficult just eating healthy and I feel like eliminating dairy all together is too restricting for me at the moment.. I haven’t touched any meat though in the last 2 months, because it is very easy to find fish everywhere and I really don’t like eating it any longer after watching food inc and reading skinny bitch.. So if you guys see some greek yoghurt appear on the bloggie, sorry but that’s the way it’s gonna be.. I don’t like to label myself.. I just try to be healthy, whilst eating a variety of foods ( I will keep buying almond milk/ rice milk/ oat milk and soy milk because I think variety is very important in a diet + I really like the taste)

That’s all for now folks..Have a nice day!!

Questions:

– What does your diet look like?

– Do you eliminate certain foods or avoid them?

– For what reason?
