Please take the title as a joke, I do not want to get married and especially not get wifed. This is just to intro my day. Here’s why the title fits. I woke up (no shit) and made breakfast! Not just any breakfast tho, it was from some mom’s instagram account and the porridge she made was for her kid. It was absolutely delish!!!! Well done, Mom who I forgot the name of.
I watched a ‘what I eat in a day’ yesterday (cool). I’m currently loving them food videos, I’m either watching a model (Sanne Vloet) eat all the macros and micros and ‘healthy fats’, some giant bodybuilder on his cheat day he’s been so patiently lifting tons for the last weeks or a spanish guy not seeming to get any fatter even tho he’s inhaling 10,000. Anyway, kinda forgot where I was going with this.
I watched one of those videos by Sanne yesterday and she made lunch which was a spinach and pumpkin salad. Because I want all the protein, healthy fats and leafy greens in my body too, I made my way to the shop.
I took my glas jars, fruit bags and shopping bags and walked right into the rain. 🙂
I filled up the jars with buckwheat and lentils, the fruit bags with plums, mandarines, and tomatoes and the shopping bag with spinach, pumpkin, rosemary, vegan yog…..
By the time I got back I was a bit peckish (I learned that word from theannaedit and Saffron Barker who always seem to be a bit peckish). Because the pumpkin had to go in the oven for about 40 minutes, I immediatelygot chopping.
here’s what you need:
- 50g baby spinach
- 1/2 hakkaido pumpkin
- 1 onion
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 40g quinoa
After literally inhaling the entire content of the plate and sending everyone in my phone book a picture, I went back to scrolling instagram and pinterest and youtube, simultaniously. After a while I came across a recipe for granola. That was the second I thought, Hey! I just bought buckwheat, let’s make some granola. And that’s why it smells like paradise in my amaprtment right now! I did not follow the recipe I found like what so ever, I just threw all things I could find and thought would make up a good granola onto my baking tray. I’ll rate it tomorrow, when I get the full breakfast experience! But from the one dry raisin I just ate, I gotta give it a
- various nuts
- coconut flakes
- previously roasted pumpkin seeds from ma hakkaido pumpkin
- peanut butter
- agave nectar
- spekulatius spice
Tip: don’t put the raisins/ dried fruits into the oven! 🤦♀️
I wish I was hungry but the pumpkin really filled me up. Think I might make some tea, sit in bed and watch the great british bake off or something even more brain cells killing.
Remember how I said that I wasn’t hungry after the pumpkin and that I was exited to have the granola on my yogurt tomorrow? Ya. For dinner I had 6 slices of bread with pb&j. Then I had granola with almond milk. Then I had an entire chocolate aka 180g of pretzel and toffee chocolate. After that I felt sick and had a sugar rush. Never slept that bad in my life!
