MY SUNDAY BREAKFAST & LUNCH

Follow
Hello friends! It’s very important to start a healthy Sunday before approaching a new working week. That’s why I like to cook something delicious on the weekend as everybody I suppose. If you’re thinking the same and don’t have an idea how to do it, please read this post!

Well as usually I’ve started my day with a glass of lemon water as I’m used to do it since couple of years now. Then I did some exercises during 5-10 minutes (as it’s Sunday, there is no reason to not do that, no work, no hurry). And once the morning rituals are done, here we go with the first meal of the day – the breakfast! I’ve actually started with the second bowl – oat cereals with chocolate chips and rice milk. As I was going to have a second bowl of fruit salad the portion of the cereals is not too big. And then I’ve added a second bowl of fruit mix – melon, watermelon, banana and some chopped brazil nuts. These ingredients are vital as they are a good source of both vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber.

HEALTHY BREAKFAST

I want to share as well the idea of my lunch – healthy lunch! Always a bit of proteins – bio tofu steak + carbohydrates – quinoa rice and a fresh salad with tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers! I promise that it feels easy after this meal!

ONE USUAL DAY IN MADRID

Follow
I went to Madrid for almost 5 days to hang out with my friend Andrea. I met her in Paris last year but we built a close relationship fast, just as sisters so I was very happy to find her after 4 months!

IMG-20160505-WA0012We took this picture on a rooftop in Plaza Callao with a great view to Gran Via – the most important avenue of Madrid.

IMG-20160505-WA0011I don’t really need to describe how happy was I to meet her, do I? 🙂

IMG-20160507-WA0000We found some quite girlie things to do at Claire’s. Girl power 🙂

IMG_20160505_145209Even H&M at Gran Via is so “fashion”, so hard to pass by!

IMG-20160507-WA0037While I was posing hard, Christen was having fun on her side 🙂

I know this shooting is ridiculous, but it”s funny enough to share with you 🙂

IMG-20160507-WA0024With my friends Andrea and Christen at Palacio Real de Madrid. Thank you girls for having so much fun with you!

IMG-20160507-WA0057To finish this beautiful day we went to one of the tourists’ preferred place – San Gines. Here you can have a very special hot chocolate with churros. I haven’t had this kind of hot chocolate before so even now I remember how it tasted.

IMG-20160507-WA0053Even that there is a long line before San Gines, you MUST enter there and try this exceptional chocolate!

QUICK MAKE UP AT SEPHORA’S IN MADRID

Follow
I went for shopping to “El Corte Inglès” with my friend Andrea in order to find a dress for her graduation party. Strolling over the floors we run on Sephora and why not try a quick make up to fresh up my face?

The assistant took a real good care of me as I liked my make up so much. Actually, I was so excited about it that I didn’t take the products names she applied on me. The foundation was perfect for me so I really need to find the same! So please, dear assistant, if you ever visit my blog, just leave a comment with the products’s names, porfi 🙂  “Querida asistente, si alguna vez visitas m blog, dejame un comentario con el nombre de los productos, por favor” 🙂

**HAPPY WITH THE RESULT

I have no words to describe how delicious this ice cream was! Everybody who hasn’t tasted it yet, go ahead! I’m more than sure  that yet you haven’t had a more yumi ice cream in your life!IMG_20160429_221056

Häagen-Dazs is well-known but I’m disgusted to have discovered it for me only now… 🙂

HAPPY EASTER!

Follow
Happy Easter to everybody! Today’s post is for those who are celebrating the Orthodox Easter. I guess it’s a challenge for me to keep this tradition in a foreign country but today we added our touch along with my friend Marina who made these delicious and healthy Easter cakes. I don’t know the recipe but surely I’m going to have them again.

IMG_20160501_104157We stopped by quickly at this nice brasserie called “La Grille Saint Germain” near Jardin de Luxembourg for a take-away coffee and even asked the landlady to heat up our homemade cakes. Well, there is a myth that the parisian waiters are rude but you know what? There are still a lot of kind people out there and we were pleasantly surprised with my friend when she took care of our cakes. So I’m definitely going back there to have some coffee in the corner of one of the most charming streets of Saint Germain des Prés.

MY SWEET AND SALTY BREAKFAST

Follow
Here is one of my favorite breakfast menus that I want to share with you! These toasts are so delicious that I get excited in the evening knowing that I’m going to have them in the morning!IMG_20160419_081342As you guess from the title at least one of these toasts is sweet, but which one? Well, the one with avocat, cream cheese and blueberry jam. It’s a new thing that I’m trying and you know what? I’m not disappointed as it’s always cool to try new savours so if you’re still hesitating, go ahead and don’t forget to give me your feedback 😉

The second toast on the right is a simple omelet with some black pepper and parsley. I guess not that creative but it’s an excellent source of proteins so I go for it.

And the last but not least the toast with “Chevrette au basilic”. Well that sounds French I know and I’m going to tell you more about this tasty spread. It contains fresh goat’s cheese, zucchini and basil. Actually it is something that you should have for aperitif but I decided to have it for my breakfast as it does have a light and airy taste.

IMG_20160419_081231This was actually offered by our wonderful employee representative committee that I’m lucky to have because we benefit from nice parcels once every couple of months. Usually it’s a selection of “Bonjour French Food” ( 100% French food) so that we could taste different local products. It’s a real discovery for me and I’m surely going to post another recipes with these delicious products.

I guess this breakfast idea is for those who want to make a difference and to have varied meal. These three toasts won’t make you fat if you have them in the morning. On the contrary, besides being super delicious, they contain enough proteins and carbohydrates to provide you energy for the whole day and especially a good mood!

 


GETTING A GOOD START

Another gray week end in Paris after a sunny week! It’s a bit frustrating but there’s nothing that can be done, unless accept it and go for a good start no matter how cold it is outside:) (it took me some time though to get motivated in the morning lol).

I’m not so much into running but into exercising and stretching stuff but I do run a bit about 10 min (please don’t laugh) to get to my favorite spot to start my workout. So I’ve found this perfect area near Canal St Martin (Paris 19) on sort of a roof right over the canal where I can spend 15-20 min for stretching, working my abs, etc. You may ask me why here? Well, it’s just next to my place and as I’ve said it takes me 10 min to get there. The other reason is that when I go there usually around 08 am, it’s not crowded and I can enjoy a bit “the sleeping Paris”. And finally, I guess my top reason is that you can have an incredibly beautiful view which helps to relax and meditate.

Well, the is another reason why I like this place (I dare say it only after posting the photos), doesn’t this place look like ‘Titanic” to you? lol

Hope to have a sunny Sunday next week end and if not, I hope this might inspire you!

See you 😉
