Pain au chocolat

6F16A7F6-32E5-420E-8966-EF2990442886This is how I started yesterday my last day at work. Leaving on Sunday. One week of well deserved holidays. Going to Egypt. Sun, sea, beach, swimming pool,… and lots of drinks, food and fun. My program of the following 7 days. Out of the office for my colleagues, but don’t worry I’ll keep on posting my favourite food dishes for you guys!

Yogurt and pineapple

Since I wrote my last article (almost a week ago!), you can imagine why I didn’t post more articles on my foodblog. Extremely busy and not taking enough time for myself. The good news, within 12 days we’ll be sitting on the plane direction Egypte. One week with friends, sun sea beach and diving. So looking forward! My mom and her husband are coming to live one week in our place, to take care of our two baby cats. I’m feeling blessed!

Wake up this morning and prepared breakkie. Wanna surprise the husband with some pineapple, his favourite fruit. Though he can’t eat too much of it, because of his diabetes (too much sugar – natural sugar – in fruit). So some yogurt and pineapple covered with chiaseed. Good start of our Saturday.

Breakkie eggs

66FADB2B-8BF7-4267-AD95-9A7516856CA9Sunday morning always deserves something special. The only day you really have time to spend together this breakfast moment.

Especially after some quite busy weeks! Running from one party to another friend’s visit, getting married and leaving on your honeymoon, teambuilding events at work,… we can not say we have a boring life.

And so our « healthy-food-habits program » became a very important challenge to us. How ohhh how can you eat and drink less while having all these nice things to do? We have our next appointment wit the nutritionist on the 31st of July. All suggestions are welcome!

Anyway, started this Sunday with some scrambled eggs and avocado with chives. Getting ready now for another party with friends… sun and bbq fun!

Granola

Yesterday we had a kind of teambuilding. How to react on changes and how to prepare our new way of working. A whole-day-workshop in the Novotel St-Catherine | Brussels. Indeed, next to my door, 5 minutes walk. What a comfort!

Starting with a good breakfast is essential. I saw these cute granola jars in glass. Pay attention to the names of the different granolas: shocking chocolate, sneaky cinnamon, crumbling coconut, whizzy walnut.

Which one would you like to taste?!

 

 

Breakfast in Jamaica

787E977B-D765-4B38-AF9A-79D0A47203C6We finally arrived in Jamaica 🌴🌴🌴 after having two days lost because of a broken airplane. It was a bloody hell to arrive here, so now we wanna enjoy as much as possible!

The Grand Palladium is a huge complex with two hotels: the first one is « Jamaica » and the second one is «Lady Hamilton ». We are staying in the second one. A classy 5* hotel, worth a visit.

You have a choice between 8 different restaurants and 7 bars. You never get bored in here, so many choices, it’s incredible! We started our day with a nice breakkie. Okay I have to admit, not so healthy as we normally have our breakfast. But hey, we’re on holiday 👍👍👍

When Thursday becomes Sunday

6BDAA5E5-0886-4173-9FCF-FD2A7015B2DEI love religious holidays, especially when they are during the week. An extra day off, time to enjoy a good breakfast and to cook later on a new dish. But that you’ll discover in my following post.

Two fried eggs, « bio » eggs from our local market. I’m not that kind of « bio » person as I find those « bio » products way too expensive. An exception: eggs. They absolutely are much more tasty than the normal ones.

Fried in a frying pan, on top a bit of salt and pepper. I don’t often add salt in my preparations, it’s a habit I think. Some people can’t eat without salt, some do not need it at all. Altough I’m definately the second type of person, an egg (boiled or fried) always tastes much better with a bit of (sea)salt.

The orange water is homemade. Water with an in-slices-cutted orange. Easy peasy. To be served very cold so that the orange flavour is just perfect. I always have one of them in the fridge and I use different types of fruit for it: orange, lemon, lime, strawberries,… You can also add some dried herbs for extra flavour: thyme, pink peppercorns, cardemon,… Try it out and tell me which one is your favourite flavour!

« Pistolet » breakfast

0FB16751-8CC1-47D5-9D38-F4FE58222A1A.jpegThis was Sunday’s breakfast. We need to take time to enjoy breakfast as my husbie would easily skip this most important foodmoment of the day. Very difficult for him, he normally eats for the first time around noon. So I try to make it a cosy moment and I decorate the table with a lovely napkin. He still didn’t notice till now… LOL!

I have been searching for the english word for what we call a « pistolet » but can not really find the correct translation. Do you call it a « roll » or a « crusted roll »? Or do you have another word for it? Please tell me!

Homemade bread

ACAAB0FB-7278-4039-A120-BB4270A78BE0I told you that I try to avoid as much as possible carbohydrates, but I couldn’t resist yesterday. It was a sporty sunday, a « dive »sunday, we were going to dive in the Oosterschelde (sea) in the Nederlands. Very cold and rainy weather and I needed some positive vibes to get in the mood.

I bought the all-in mix from Delhaize (brown bread with kernel). Very easy in use, you just need to add water and the bread machine does the rest. I was very happy with the result! Hmmm!
