Sorry about not posting for so long! My eats haven’t been as interesting and as healthy as I would have liked this week. Lots of eating out for work.
But here are the highlight of the end of this week:
Pizza night with Fanny:
I had a great night on wednesday! Pizza and a movie (The Lake House). Gosh, I love this movie…. Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock make the cutest couple! Pizza was great too. I picked up a Cured Ham and Rucola Pizza at this place called Croccante, a family owned italian restaurant in the 15th. My sister first took me to this tiny place about a year ago. It is small and cosy and feels very homey. The owner is really friendly, his accent rough but enchanting, when like me, you like Italy so badly you wish you lived there. My friend Fanny and I were talking about living in Italy while waiting for our pizza to be made, and I was telling her that if I lived there, I’d probably give up my job, live in a small town, have a huge garden, and cook all day from my fresh produce…. Sounds fun…
On the side I enjoyed one of these goat cheese bites wrapped in italian ham. It was delicious.
Raw Honey and Peanut Butter toasts for breakfast:
This was my quick and easy breakfast of the week. More than once in the past few days I woke up too late to fix myself some nice oats or quinoa, but this is a healthy alternative that you can prepare in no time. This week I used the leftover whole wheat Hallah bread my sister made.
Have you ever had Raw Honey before? It is exceptionnal. We bought it at Whole Foods. This jar is the local (Texas) kind, but they also carry other brands that should be sold outside of Texas.
Quick Salad for the working bee:
Just thought I would show you what I usually eat for lunch. It doesn’t take much time to prepare but tastes delicious. I’ve always had something for salads. They often taste more interesting than sandwiches.
This contains: Romaine, red and yellow bell peppers, 1/4 avocado, parisian mushrooms (I buy them pre-sliced), reduced salt chicken deli meat, and crumbled low fat feta. For the dressing I use a balsamic vinegar glaze. Yum!
Are you one of those people who needs a bit of chocolate every day? Well I sure am. However I have very good self control with chocolate. I choose dark chocolates only and never have more than 1 or 2 squares. That’s the spirit: indulge in moderation!
Since I discovered the brand NEWTREE, my life has changed. I used to always get Lindt 70% or 85% (which I love still) but now I discoved healthy variety and it’s good to have a change sometimes.
From left to right:
- dark chocolate with whole flax seeds,
- chili and flax seeds,
- pink peppercorn,
All of them are 73% cocoa and taste amazing. My favorites are the chili and the cherry one.
Which one would you choose?
Hope you are having a great day! I’m heading to the gym before my driving class. Then I might see my long time friend Floryse, her husband Adrien and their son Louis. They are moving back to Paris after 3 years in London!!! And I am very excited to see them. Especially Louis, whom I have not yet met! They are looking for an apartment in our neighborhood!
