Before it’s too late

This was my very late Saturday breakfast in bed: rye bread sandwiches with mustard, egg, pepper, cottage cheese and cress. Some almonds and black tea as well. Now grocery shopping and housework – typical Saturday.

Low Carb Challenge

Well I really try to skip the carbohydrates, but it’s hard! On my running days I just need the energy. When I come home from a run, I feel so exhausted that I could eat my fingers – I swear! Then I need some spelt flour pancakes or crisp bread sandwiches. My opinion on fruits is also quite ambivalent. I know that they have a lot of sugar (and some nutritionists say that fructose is the kind of sugar which makes people fat), but I just love the taste of berries and bananas. There is nothing better than yoghurt and fruits after a hard workout.

Breakfast Pancakes

My breakfast this morning: a quickly made pancake with yoghurt. I used 1 tsp olive oil / 20 g spelt flour / 1 tbsp rolled oats / 1 tbsp spelt bran / 1 tbsp quark / 1 tsp baking powder / 2 egg whites / 2 tbsp water. The pancake tasted delicious and I liked how big and fluffy it got. Of course there was a cup of tea, too. Earl Grey is my favourite at the moment. Feeling full with energy now!
