Sunday Food Prep

Hello!!

I know it’s been a while since I have done any #SundayFoodPrep – you can see my last one here but I have to admit between crazy working days and long weekend runs I really didn’t feel like spending a few hours in the kitchen on Sunday… Well, since I got plenty of sleep last night and no long run planned for this weekend I decided to spent these few hours in the kitchen today and food prep a little.

What did I make? Here we go…

Baked root veggies and brussels sprouts.

Ground turkey patties with orange peppers in them – I cooked some today and froze the rest 🙂

A jar of homemade mayonnaise using @M&M_taleoftworuns’s recipe (my mama in law)! It is my favourite and so incredibly yummy and easy to make! You can find the recipe here.

Pork Dijon Honey (freezer meal for the crock pot). It is extremely easy and comes handy when I know I’ll be home late. All you need is to fill a freezer bag with 3lbs of pork roast, 3tbs of Dijon mustard – actually like wholegrain as well-, 1/4 cup of honey, salt and pepper to taste and a pinch of thyme. Freeze the bag and when you want to cook it make sure you take it out of the freezer the night before, add 1/2 cup of water and cook it in the crockpot for 8 hours on low. It is yummy!!

And last but not least my very favourite oats and PB power bars. You can find the recipe here 🙂

I also made eggs and ham cupcakes, which is the perfect breakfast or on the go snack.Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 09.48.36

So this was all friends 🙂 Hopefully it’ll make our work week a little easier and it’ll help me get back on the healthy eating train since I’ve fallen off it pretty hard the past few weeks…

It is incredible how people think that since you are training for a half or a full marathon “You should be losing weight or at least maintain, right?!?!” Errrmm, short answer is no, not necessarily. It is pretty common to gain a few pounds while in training. In mycase those few are 8-10lbs. But I don’t see them sticking around for too long 😉 Back up on my feet and since my foot is fully healed by now I can’t wait to do some exercise!

Here is a great article by Tina Muir, about training and calorie restriction which I found very interesting.

Have an awesome week everyone!!

  1. Isn’t that unfair that running all of those training miles doesn’t mean weight loss?! Crazy. My weight hasn’t budged one bit despite running 50-55 miles a week. I didn’t know that people made mayonnaise! I have several crockpot meals in my freezer. Definitely a time saver when I can’t think of anything to make!
    Glad your foot is feeling better! 🙂
