Good morning yall!
Woke up pretty sleepy this morning. The night was short, since I came home super late last night. On Tuesday afternoons, I usually work at my research lab which is in the far and cold suburban city called Orsay. Despite the long train ride there and back, I love tuesday afternoons. The atmosphere in a research lab is way different from one of a clinical department at the Hospital, much more peaceful. And I love both of my bosses and the master’s student I am training at the moment. On my way back home last night (as already almost 9) I even went to the gym for a short run on the treadmill. Did intervals (from walking to running) at 15% incline. I was tired and thought of stopping every couple minutes but I still finished my 30 min workout and felt pretty proud of myself!
Once at home, I knew exactly what would be for dinner. Since I didn’t have much food left in my fridge, I didn’t have a choice really… So I made a Spinach, Mushroom and Goat Frittata with leftover soup.
The frittata turned out great. I started by cooking a big bag of baby spinach into a hot skillet over medium heat with 2 small cloves of garlic (crushed). I then put the spinach aside and cooked a few sliced mushrooms. On the side I beat 3 whole eggs, 4 egg whites with a splash of milk, salt and pepper. When the veggies were cooked I mixed them to the egg mixture, added a few pieces of fresh goat cheese. I poured everything into a baking pan and sprinkled with shredded low fat goat cheese. Baked for about 20-30 min in a preheated oven.
The Soup was made with pumpkin, carrots, parsnips and jerusalem artichokes. I made it a few weeks ago and froze the leftovers. Made a perfect side. Leftover soup rocks!
The inside of the frittata was so light a fluffy. And I loved the cheesy crust on top, so tasty! Was hoping to have leftover for lunch today but Travis finished it all. The man needs his protein!
This morning, oats were the only reason why I decided to get out of bed. I made Creamy banana oats with blueberries, flaxmeal and bee pollen. Was a perfect way to start the day!
Have a great day!
