Thought I would tell you guys that I noticed that my two favourite pieces from ZARA is back in stock, or at least in the Sydney store.
This bag is my everyday key accessory, the oversized bag really works for me as I´m always carrying around my training clothes. The heels are to die for, plus they make my legs look longer, which is never a bad thing.
Good afternoon guys,
I have found the perfect substitute for bread, forget about that bread loaf high in carbs and full of gluten, time to get into eating bread high in protein and good fats.
Yesterday I did something that I have been wanting to do for such a long time. So many are praising and going nuts over the LCHF bread so I decided to bake it myself. This girl inspired me to make some research and translate all the ingredients from swedish into english so I could find them in the grocery store.
I used PT Fia´s recipe as an inspiration however I did tweak it a little bit to put my Fashionablefit stamp on it!
400 ml (4 dl) LSA (Grounded Linseed- Sunflower- Almond)
30 ml (2 msk) Psyllium Husk
250 gram Quark
10 ml (2 tsk) of Baking Powder
5 ml (1 tsk) of Salt, Cinnamon, cardamom, Cloves, Caraway seed, Honey
Add chopped apricots, raisins, hazelnuts, pumpkin kernels, Sunflower kernels, sesame seeds as much as you like.
Mix together and place it in a loaf-form, garnish with whatever seed you like. Bake for 70-80 minutes in the oven on 170 degrees.
This (LCHF) low carb high fat fruit loaf is seriously beyond delish. It is so delish that I feel like I´m eating something really bad for me. This bread is made out of pretty much only protein, fibre and omega 3! How amazing is that!
I´m so over trying bad substitutes in exchange for the real thing. There are so many bad attempts out there trying to promote a healthier option that just taste like crap. I rather not have it than settle for the copy cat that won´t hit the spot.
It´s like getting a fake designer bag. If you buy that fake PRADA bag, you´re always going to know that it´s a fake and it will never make you feel completely satisfied as if you would have gotten the real deal. However this bread is out of this world and not the second best thing. It´s doesn´t even feel like a substitute, it´s more like getting a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag oppose to getting a Marc Jacobs bag. Like my analogy? Hahaha!
What I´m saying is that this is such a delish bread that tastes like the real deal and hits the spot like the real deal, however it has so many more benefits oppose to the traditional fruit loaf.
Guys it seriously took me 10 minutes to mix it all together! Bake it NOW, you will die!
Just came back from my workout, I´m loving training at the moment. Since I´m not stressing as much I feel like I take my time to do everything properly and not rushing through the routines. I have a little bit of an obsession with cute training outfits at the moment. This is the new top I got from Lorna Jane for 40 AUD on sale!
I absolutely love the stuff, however I do think training clothes are so freakin pricy. Obviously you get what you pay for, which is great quality and garments that will last you forever. My only issue is that training clothes I rather trash and exchange frequently as the clothes gets sweaty and daggy. Can someone please design some really hot and cute training clothes that are affordable if you´re on a budget. Still, I do think it is worth getting a cute training outfit from retailers like Lorna Jane every now and then to spoil yourself.
I would recommend to invest in a new training outfit now that a lot of the clothes are on sale!
Healthy Snack for Late Night Cravings!
When you eat low carb dinners in general it sometimes leaves you unsatisfied and with late night cravings. My new thing has been to search for healthy snacks that really hits the spot, when my cravings takes over my disciplined mind.
I have a few tricks up my sleeves, but today I´m indtroducing you to a techniques that many body builders and fitness models use.
Organic almond butter is my new little trick that I treat myself with when the late night cravings kicks in. Peanut butter is also a really good alternative and prefered by many. Please make sure that it is pretty much pure peanut or almond butter and that the quality is good. Stay away from the ones that is loaded with sugar. So for those who are thinking Nutella, think again!
Ok, time to get some new passport photos done and hit the gym. Seriously getting through all of these processes and requirements for the Visa application to stay in this country will be the end of me. But what don´t you do for LOVE! Haha…
On request I´m kick starting my video blog through theorebmethod´s You Tube channel.
I do a lot of circuit training as it promotes fat loss and keeps me toned and lean. This is the circuit I did today, note that I´m only demonstrating the exercises and not performing the full rep range.
For each excercise you should be doing a minimum of 12 reps, however you need to change the rep range every couple of weeks as the body adapts to reps the fastest. This means that you need to keep changing the rep range (suggested every third week) to see the best results.
Let me know if you guys thinks this is helpful and if it gives you a better idea of what to do when getting into the gym?
I have been going over my diet thinking about things that I could change or improve on. I found that I easily find favourites and I eat the same things all the time. An area of improvement is that I need to have more variation in my diet. There are numerous benefits of having a varied diet, however the most important benefit is that it decreases your chances of developing allergies. It is so important to have a balanced diet with a lot of variation in order to avoid developing allergies.
Mix it up and try to vary and rotate your meals including breakfast, so you´re not eating the same thing day in and day out.
Training went really well today, I´m excited to be back in the gym after a couple of day´s spent in the library studying. I did a big circle of various exercises today, I did 15 reps for each excercise for 8 sets (NO BREAKS!)
A1 Back squats
A2 Rope pull (focus on upper back)
A4 Triceps ( rope pull down)
A5 Abs on Pilates ball
B1 25 min Cross Trainer
After training I went into the city to try to spoil myself with some shopping. Zara was my fist stop and I got a pair of really nice black pants. Perfect for my potential interviews!
Ok, I know I sound so silly now but I find it so hard to spend money on things outside necessities. I have been a ”tight ass” student for over two years, always cautious of my spending. I guess it´s a good thing though, to be good with your budget. However I couldn´t resist gettin some new training clothes. Say what you want but I love looking fashionable in the gym as well :) Lauren the girl who was helping me at Lorna Jane in Mid City was amazing, unreal customer service without feeling pressured to buy anything. Love it! I´ll show you later what I got.
For lunch I had steamed chicken, broccolini and gluten-free falafel. Clean and lean healthy lunch.
Such a weird feeling, I´m done!
I woke up early this morning feeling all weird, I have been working so hard for two years and now it´s over. I cannot believe I´m done. Now on to new adventures and explore all the opportunities available to me.
I´m not the best at celebrating, I´m alway five steps ahead of myself so I forget to celebrate the success of my achievements. So my best advice for you guys still on the journey to achieve your goals, don´t forget to enjoy the ride. Try and not live too much in the future and make sure to celebrate your achievements. You have worked so hard!
I began my first day of this new chapter of my life with a delish breakfast and on the phone with the Australian Department of Immigration. No rest…
Quark, vanilla protein powder, water, cinnamon, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin kernels, goji berries.
So excited to hit the gym, speak soon Xx
Ps. Thank´s Felcia, Bas and Tiani for the beautiful flowers!
Breakfast is served, quark with walnut crunch, cinnamon and honey swirl.
I´m accessorizing my white canvas with natural vanilla flavored protein powder and Australian organic rainforest honey. I think if you want to add some sugar to your diet try to do it in the simplest forms. Honey is a great way to add a little bit of sweetness, as the quark is not the tastiest on its own.
This is the honey I use, all natural and of course organic
This is what you need to make the walnut crunch, cinnamon and honey swirl, plus protein powder. I´ll make a post about what protein powder I recommed, or what protein powder Cameron recommend I should say. Haha…
The quark is really rich and thick so I add water until I get the texture that is more like yoghurt. Now time to dress up this white canvas. I add cinnamon, crushed walnuts, almonds and a little bit more of honey over the nuts.
Just came home from Saturday training and shopping. Seriously how exciting can grocery shopping be?
Summer is knocking on the door here in Sydney, so it´s time to show the pins and wear some dresses….
Back to what really excites me about grocery shopping. We were cruising around in Taste Organic doing our normal Saturday shopping. I was looking for new exciting things to fill our fashionablefit wardrobe (fridge) with. I was so excited to see this new arrival on the shelf…
Quark is like your basic t-shirt in your wardrobe, there so much you can do with it. You can dress it up or you can keep it clean and simple. Quark is extremely high in protein, extremely low in fat and best of everything it has around 1.4 g sugar per 100 g so almost nothing.
My first attempt to accessorise the quark is with organic strawberries and vanilla protein powder from Poliquin. I mix it all together and leave it in the freezer to get hard. The idea is to try to get a frozen yoghurt feel to it. Yum!
You can of course have it as it is without having it in the freezer, it is just as deliiisssh!!
It makes me so excited when I find things that I used to love having in Sweden, however I couldn´t seem to find it here in Sydney. Quark is something all the health freaks over there go nuts over. You can do so much with it, and it is so good for you. A perfect substitute for all those dairy products high in sugars…
Stay tuned as I will be playing around with this new-found favorite.
