A small round up of my 10k win from yesterdays test event, in preparation for next months World Championships in Barcelona harbour
Pre training was a banana because \i knew the session would be an easy one. Post training breakfast was day 2 of straying from my usual (shreddies & raisins) and I once again had sugar puffs! No particular reason for that I just wanted a change.
Lunch - Chorizo & chick pea soup
I had a tin of chick peas in the cupboard for ages and didnt know what to do with them so I did some research and found a really recipe with chorizo.
What you need; 100g chorizo, 1 tin chick peas, 30-40g red or green lentils, 1 red onion, 2 carrots, 2 celery sticks, 500ml vegetable stock, paprika, seasoning.
What I did; For this recipe you just use 1 pan so make sure it can hold 750ml of stock at least. In the pan fry the chopped chorizo for 2 minutes in a little oil. Add the chopped red onion and fry for a further 4 minutes.
Add the chopped carrots & chopped celery and cook for another 5 minutes. Add 1-2 tbsp of paprika and fry for another minute. Now add the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Once the water is boiling add the lentils and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with warm crusty bread!
Friday night I had gym and needed to replace the protein that I used in the gym so for Friday night’s dinner we had …… sirloin steak!
Dinner - Sirloin steak with baked potato and salad.
What you need; sirloin steak, baking potatoes, salad or garden peas.
There really isn’t a recipe for this and David cooked the steak for me but I will still show you a picture :)
So thats the end of my #foodblog I hope you found it interesting and saw that you can have healthy food that is still exciting!
