Grilled Beefsteak with Brussels Sprouts Salad

Beef with Brussels sprouts Salad

Grilled flank steak with roasted brussels sprouts on fresh and crisp corn salad with a lemony mustard vinaigrette – I’m a sucker for a good steak dish, and this is ONE!

I cooked the steak on a grill pan, but you can either cook it outside on the grill or in a large non-sticking skillet.

This dish is packed with protein and fiber and it is also gluten-free, low-carb and paleo-friendly too!

Food of the Week: Melon

Watermelon

This week I would like to celebrate Melon as my Food of the Week! What is tastier, better and more refreshing than a chilled water melon, honey melon or cantaloupe melon on a hot summer day? This time of the year melons are in the peak of their season, have the best flavor and are the least expensive. There are low in calories, a great source of both vitamin A and vitamin C and are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support.

So now that we know Melons are good, here are my 2 favorite, mouth-watering  Smoothie Recipes just for you!

Chocolate Peanutbutter Cups

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I don’t know about you, but I cannot live without chocolate… These healthy and delicious Chocolate Peanutbutter Cups are a perfect desert to satisfy your sweet tooth. Especially in summer when it’s hot outside and you don’t fancy switching on the oven to bake something you will appreciate these simple no-bake, no-fuss chocolate cups. My tip is to keep them in the fridge so you have them chilled and crunchy. Absolutely to-die-for!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

My recipe is for 4 chocolate cups, but you can easily adjust the recipe for more or less servings. I usually don’t make too many to be on the safe side because in a choco-maniac household these seductive desserts are definitely not safe!

Rasberry Kiwi Smoothie Ice Cream

Raspberry Kiwi Smoothie Ice Cream

It’s currently so hot in Germany that I could live of ice-cream only. So I decided to transform my favorite smoothie into ice-cream! Frozen raspberries, coconut milk and fruit toppings make this smoothie become a tasty, healthy and refreshing ice cream.

Workout of the Week: Butt & Thighs

My Workout of the Week is a video I found on Blogilates, one of my favorite workout blogs. This video is focusing on lifting your booty and trimming your thighs. You can easily do the video at home, the only tool you need is a miniband or flexiband (just tie the ends of the flexiband, so it becomes a circle like the miniband shown in the video). To tell you the truth I was so sore after this 15 minutes video I could hardly sit in my office chair, not mentioning going up and down the stairs. That’s why it is my workout of the week: short, simple and so effective!

Good Luck!

 

 

Mealprepping: Grilled Chicken Salad

Grilled Chicken Salad

May I introduce: My favorite grilled chicken breast, spinach, tomato, cucumber and avocado salad ready to go to work, to school, for a picnic, just everywhere you want to go!

Grilled Chicken Salad

Preparing meals in advance helps me a lot to stay focused on my diet and avoid unhealthy food choices and binging. Beside of this cooking only once a week for 4-5 meals saves your time, reduces stress and somehow makes you to commit to your diet plan. I mean you’ve cooked the meals, hence you going to eat them!

My mealprep system is working the following way:

Saturday: Grocery Shopping – Ensure being stocked with all fresh and healthy ingredients you need in order to cook all the meals. Make a list and focus especially on produce and protein (eggs, chicken, fish, tofu..).

Sunday: Mealprepping – Ensure you have enough Tupperware boxes first. Grill Chicken breasts or any other protein you like. Cut all the veggies you need for your salad. Put everything in your lunch boxes. I recommend 1 palm-sized source of protein and 2-3 handful of veggies. Leave out the dressing, it would otherwise make the salad soggy, instead fill the dressing in a small container for later use. Put your lunch boxes in the fridge.

Monday-Friday: All you need to do is not to forget to take your lunchbox out of the fridge when you leave the house.

You have now a healthy meal for every day of the week!

Patatas Bravas

Patatas Bravas

These delicious potatoes are the classic Spanish tapas dish and a perfect meatless Monday dinner.

I have adapted the original recipe slightly by baking the potatoes in the oven instead of deep-frying. This makes the dish lighter, healthier and leaves  you more room for other tapas or even dessert.

Enjoy!

Citrus Sunshine Pops

Citrus Popsicles

These ice pops are a perfect fresh cick for a hot summer day. They have a great balance between sour and sweet plus they are loaded with vitamin C.

I bought my Rosenstein & Söhne popscile mold recently from Amazon for 12,90€. They are really easy to use and they come with the wooden popsicle sticks already. What I love the most about doing homemade ice pops is that you exactly know what is inside. No artificial colors, no artificial sweeteners or sugars and no stuff which you can’t even pronounce. Instead these ice pops are loaded with so much juicy fruit you can almost taste the sunshine!

Lemony Codfish Burgers

Codfish Burger

Thanks god its (fishy) FRIDAY and I would like to start this wonderful sunny weekend with some delicious Thai inspired lemony codfish burgers!

These codfish burgers are easy to make and a really great way to eat fish if you are not a big fish fan. They are perfect for lunch or dinner and super healthy!

For the buns you can either use any convenient buns from the supermarket, or you can prepare them homemade yourself following the instructions for Delicious Homemade Burger Buns. For a low-carb and gluten-free diet I can recommend my recipe for Gluten-Free Protein Bread Rolls.

Gott sei Dank es ist (Fisch) Freitag! Und ich möchte dismal gerne mit köstlichen Thai Limonen Kabeljaufilet Burgern ins Wochenende starten. Die Burger sind so einfach zu machen und eine super Zubereitungsart für jeden der nicht so der Riesenfischfan normalerweise ist. Sie sind ideal als Mittag- oder Abendessen und super gesund! Die Brötchen kannst du entweder fertig vom Supermarkt beziehen oder leckere selbstgemachte Brötchen backen indem du mein Rezept Delicious Homemade Burger Buns verwendest. Für eine glutenfreie und kohlenhydratarme Diät empfehle ich mein Rezept für Gluten-Free Protein Bread Rolls.
