The Green omelette

greenomelette

My favorite day of the week is Monday. On this day I plan my schedule for the week including work and sports. And this month I added a new sport to my planning, namely running. I noticed that when I run, I need enough energy that keeps me going and a lot of proteins to build up the muscles. So I created the green omelette.  An omelette made out of organic products that contain a lot of proteins and nutrition. The perfect meal to get you ready for every exercise!

The ingredients:
– 4 Organic eggs
– Chopped zucchini
– Basil leaves
– 2 Gloves of Garlic
– Coconut oil
– Bio tomato ketchup
– Salt & Pepper to taste it

Recipe:
Chop the zucchini in thin slices and the garlic in little pieces. Get a large bowl for the eggs and break them carefully in it. Add the basil leaves and three tablespoons of bio ketchup to it. Mix it all together and put it aside.

Heat a pan with coconut oil and bake the zucchini together with the garlic for five minutes. Then add the egg mix on top of the zucchini and garlic and put a lid on the pain to boil it all down. It takes another five minutes to cook for the perfect omelette.  Add some salt and pepper and your homemade omelette is finished!

Note: For a workout I suggest to eat it plain. Else you can put it on a speltbread or cracker.

Enjoy!

Avocado chicken salat

Schermafbeelding 2014-04-12 om 15.59.19

One of my favourite things on bread is chicken breast with avocado. It is healthy and gives you lots of energy during the day. But why are those ingredients really that healthy? Well, chicken is a low fat meat and is full of proteins and magnesium. Avocado contains a lot of fiber, sodium, is cholesterol free and contains nearly twenty essential nutrients, including omega-3, vitamins A,C,D,E,K and the B vitamins. And food that is high in omega-3 is worldwide known as the secret behind a healthy heart, a high concentration and good eyes. But enough about why it’s the good for you and back to the recipe, because this is simply to good! The recipe is quite easy and the ingredients for this avocado chicken salat are:

– 2 Boneless chicken breasts
– 2 Avocado’s
– ¼ Chopped onion
– Juice of ½ a lime
– 2 Tablespoons of cilantro
– Salt and pepper to taste it

How to make it? Cook the chicken breasts until it is done. Cool the meat and then shred it. Make a cream of the avocado and add the other ingredients to it. Last but not least, add the shredded chicken to the avocado cream and you are done. My suggestion is to eat it with multigrain bread or with crackers. Get inspired!

Every day I hear people talk about health. It is the trend of being healthy and super fit. The only problem is lack of discipline and motivation. But with this simple solution you can make your day already very healthy! I am talking about a glass of water with fresh lemon juice squeezed in it. I can give you many reasons why you should drink it but the most important ones are:

1. It gives you an energy boost.
2. It promotes good digestion.
3. It stimulates elimination.
4. It gives your immune system a boost.
5. It helps detoxify the liver.
6. It helps you lose weight.
7. Better skin.
8. Hydration.

Convinced already?  Here is how you make a lemon juice yourself: Take one lemon and slice it in half, squeeze the juice into a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning. And start breakfast after 20/30 minutes. If you are trying this for the first time, maybe begin with a quarter of a lemon and over several days, work your way up to half a lemon. And of course, you can also use a lime juice if that is your preference!

Don’t you have any inspiration for tonight’s meal? I got the solution that is simple, healthy and fun to make! Get creative and make your own very healthy spring rolls. And the best of all is that you can make a roll with your favourite flavours. The recipe is easy and cheap. You need spring roll wrappers to make a spring roll. These you can find at your local Chinese store.  And the rest of the recipe is up to you. Decide what kind of vegetables you want to eat tonight and cut them in long thin pieces. The rolls are also great with chicken or shrimps. And last but not least, choose your sauce. My favourites are sweet chilli, ketjap, and soya sauce.

How to make this spring rolls? Soak each spring roll wrapper in warm water until there are pliable. Next, choose your lettuce and vegetables and put them in the middle of the wrapper. End with little strokes of chicken or keep it vegan. Wrap this roll up like you were wrapping a burrito. To keep the spring roll in place, you can put some of your sauce on the ends of the roll. When you are ready, cut the roll in half on the diagonal and serve it with your favourite sauce. Enjoy and get inspired!
