More Car Troubles

24 Aug

Yep, I’ve had more problems with my car!! I got stuck at my boyfriend’s house at the start of this week because my car wouldn’t even start… I ended up having to replace the battery altogether ๐Ÿ˜ฆ my wallet is looking extremely sad and empty at the moment!!!

This was my last week in aged care/rehab… I’m looking forward to ย next week!! Surgery woo!! ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t wait.

Motivation: Nathalia Melo. So jealous of her tiny waist!

 

Ok due to my financial situation I was a bit stingey on food this week. However, I do have a couple of new recipes to share with you! ๐Ÿ™‚

Food plan:

 

Meal 1/Breakfast:

This is what my boyfriend has for breakfast every morning (he never used to eat breakfast but I’ve talked him into it haha). this is a quick and easy omelette that he chucks together every morning – he has the mushroom and tomato cut up in advance so it’s even easier!!

Boyfriend Scrambled Eggs

Serves 1

200g egg whites

1 egg

1/2 portobello mushroom (handful)

1/4 tomato (pinch)

1-2 slices shaved ham (or cooked and diced chicken breast)

Sprinkle of low fat tasty cheese

This is how my boyfriend does it, and I know it’s not the normal way of making scrambled eggs but it tastes awesome so I don’t see anything wrong with it!! –

Cook the mushroom and ham in a large frying pan (medium-high heat)

Once the mushroom is cooked, pour in egg whites and crack an egg in. Stir the egg in (with a wooden spoon)

Throw in tomato and cheese, then stir every now and again until the egg is all cooked!!

 

Meal 2:

Banana Bread Muffins

 

Meal 3/Lunch:

Leftovers ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Meal 4:

Choc Fudge Protein Brownies.

I added about a tbsp of hemp seeds and a tsp of chia seeds for extra texture and nutritional goodness!

 

Meal 5:

All of the ingredients for this recipe cost me only $15.00, including the whole half dozen carton of eggs and 1L of egg whites!!

Chicken and Mushroom Quiche

Serves 4

1 cup egg whites

1 egg

1/4 cup reduced salt chicken stock

1 tsp reduced salt tomato paste

250g chicken breast – diced

200g mushroom – chopped

1 small onion – sliced

1 cup broccoli – chopped

Handful of spinach

Preheat oven to 180 degrees

Cook chicken breast on a frying pan

When nearly completely cooked, add onion, mushroom and broccoli

While that’s cooking, whisk together the egg whites, egg, chicken stock and tomato paste

Just before removing from the heat, add spinach to the chicken and vegie mixture

Pour the chicken and vegie mixture into a casserole dish

Pour egg mixture over top (it’ll fill in the gaps)

Cook for 20 minutes (or until egg is cooked – knife comes out clean)

Meal 6:

This is so yum!! I got the recipe fromย www.tasty-health.seย but altered it slightly according to what I had in my pantry :). I’ve written below what I used because it tasted awesome!

 

No Bake Choc Fudge

Serves 4

4 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp coconut butter

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

2 tsp unsweetened cocoa

8 serves Stevia

5 tbsp water (feel free to add more/less depending on the consistency of the mixture)

Mix all ingredients together and press into the bottom of 4 silicone muffin cups

Set in the freezer for about 15 minutes

I topped these with a tbsp of fat free Greek yoghurt that was mixed with 4 serves of Stevia – this tasted just like chocolate fudge with cream!!!

Never give up!!! Keep at it ๐Ÿ™‚

If a system or routine isn’t working for you, change it and make alterations so that you can reach your goals!! I’ve had to make a few modifications recently – I’ve put up little post-it notes to (attempt to) stop myself from snacking in between meals (see below). I’ve also started going for morning walks; I always gets up early but I usually just laze around for a few hours before actually doing anything constructive. So I’m pushing myself to get outside and wake myself up by going for a quick 30 minute walk ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to jog every morning and I didn’t realise how much I miss being outside so early!! So fresh :). Also I’m trying to cut out my tv/movie watching because I tend to eat whilst sitting in front of the screen. Instead, I’m trying to get back into reading, which I enjoy a lot more anyway.

 

Things aren’t going to change by themselves – if you’re not happy with something, do something about it and learn from your mistakes ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
