I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas, enjoying some quality family time. I for one would like to take this opportunity and apologize for not posting much lately. There are times in everyone’s life where the deck is stacked against you – you know what I mean, right?! Sometimes, it just seems like every single thing that can go wrong in your life does. So then all you want is a break. From everything! But now that I am slowly and surely back into business, I have a bunch of special and exciting things for you in 2016, so stay with me….
As you already know, last Sunday I completed the Köln (Cologne) Half-Marathon, my first half ever. Hooray! :)
According to my Apple Watch and Strava, I finished the race in 1:54:55, but it seems that the official time is in fact 1:55:22. Overall, not bad, but I could have finished in 1:45 (or even less) – as planned – if it wasn’t for the pre-race jitters….
Since I know so many friends (especially guys) living abroad alone, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite recipes that keep me happy and in great shape. They are not just healthy and light, but so satisfying, tasty, fresh and not to mention quick to make – 10 minutes and you are all set for the night.
You can imagine now how hard it was for me to pick favorites. Believe it or not, each recipe means a lot to me. I love them all!
The five recipes you’ll find below are some of the lightest recipes that stand out to me most. And by the way, if you make my recipes and you have an Instagram account, please share them with me on Instagram by tagging them #cookitfit. I’d love to see my dishes in your kitchens, too! …
Happy New Year, everyone! Wow, it’s a new Year … a new Resolution. A NEW SITE! Yeah! :) I really worked my tail off last year (December to be more precise) and this week to make it happen. And finally Cook it fit has got the new look I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. Oh gosh, I am done struggling with the CSS and so on – at least for a while. All I need to do now is to keep posting regularly.
I hope you guys really enjoyed the holidays and had an amazing time and took lots of funny pictures. Are the sweet cakes and cookies all gone? :) Then let’s get back on track together and start with a few recipes in order to detoxify and get back all the energy we’ll need for the new year….
Based on Tamara’s request (my dear friend), I’ve been working lately on a few quick ideas for breakfast that will fuel you up with protein, vitamins and minerals for the day ahead. I hope you all busy people out there find just the recipes you’re looking for.
My mother used to tell me when I still was a stubborn teenager (the stubborn part is still there) that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Right?! I kept answering to her on my way to school. All I wanted for breakfast back then was to sleep in a little longer – so no time for breakfast.
And now just look at me, I am not only suggesting that you should have a wide variety of plates for your morning routine, but I am telling you that having a nutritious breakfast gives you energy for the rest of your day. Besides, it’s linked to many health benefits like weight control and improved overall performance….
