Meals of a day

Losing weight but feeling strong and FULL at the same time....Italian ancestors you know, love of food runs through my Uruguayan veins. Hence I've gotta be creative in the kitchen when on a diet. 

Losing weight but feeling strong and FULL at the same time....Italian ancestors you know, love of food runs through my Uruguayan veins. Hence I've gotta be creative in the kitchen when on a diet. 

Being on a diet, or just changing things up a bit doesn't  have to be a complete torture. A little, but not completely!  

 

When I started dieting for fights I had no clue what to eat. I just ate boiled vegetables and boiled meat, all boiled ERRting! The spices I used were lemon and chili. A dl of quinoa on the side and that was it. Lunch and dinner. I freakin suffered! Disgusting as fuuuq, tasteless and super repetitive. 

As I've grown older and a bit wiser, I've started learning about the effects off food, good and bad - nutrition that is. How food works, and how my body works in function to food. And bla bla bla bla.... I know you just want me to get to the recipes right? 

Your wish is my command: 

These are a couple of recipes for this past week where I've had to cut carbs, due to a drastic weight gain.  

Let me tell you tho, that I'm at 56, 5 now. CHILLIN!! 3 days before weighins. Frikkin perfect! 

Note that these are kind of  "no-slow-carb" recipes. If you're not an athlete I'd add some carbs for breakfast and lunch!  

 

So...... 

 Energizing breakfast smoothie:

1 banana (as ripe as possible - makes smoothie sweeter) 

1/2 a glass of frozen rasberries

1 glass of nutmilk of your choice

Blend ingredients. Done. Ridiculously easy, I know.

Tip!

  • Have a handful of nuts and seeds on the side. Tasty and great energy. Don't exaggerate tho. Lots of calories!
  • Add a dl of oats as carbs if you are not on a strict diet. Better for a long term result.

 Toasted aubergine with oven baked salmon and veggies on the side:

Salmon :

Drizzle some drops of olive oil over the salmon, spice it with chili, any herb you have (I use a store bought mix with no salt ofc), and throw it in the oven. Yep. It's THAT easy!  

 Toasted aubergine:

Cut it in slizes, put them on a baking sheet (?), squeeze some garlic on top of every slize, spice with some herbs (oregano would be nice) and then drizzle some olive oil on every slize. Chop a red onion roughly, throw it in there too. Put in the oven. Again, so easy it's genius.

 Caramelized pepper and onion:

The base of all Italian tomato sauces! Sort of. 

Chop up an onion, I used half a red one and half a white one cause that's what I had left. But any onion will do. Chop up a big red pepper. I used a small yellow and red one. Put in pan with olive oil. Start cooking on high heat. Lower it and let these to ingredients become all soft n gooey together!  

 

Avocado, tomato and celery salad: 

Chop, mix, add some lemon juice and herbs. Eat!  

 

You see?! It's so simple it's ridiculous. No need to focus on wierd ingredients, and not much time spent on cooking either. I know it's not a burger, but you'll stand being on a diet a lot more I'll tell you! Make big batches, and keep it in the fridge - you'll cook even less!
