Summer dinner

BBC4F8D2-23B4-421A-8424-BC6F57AE8B58I like the combination of warm (sausages) and cold (Ebly salad) food in this dish.

The BBQ ausages are fried in olive oil in a frying pan. Some black pepper, salt and red chili flakes.

Beside that, a fresh summer salad with Ebly (which you let cool down after boiling), tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and olive oil with garlic.

Enjoy your meal!

Green asparagus and ham

11C5DF83-09E1-4EB8-B8A4-7A657025D2DFAgain another great salad. Green asparagus with ham. And a lot of tomatoes and cucumber. Some green and black olives. And boiled potatoes with shallot, chives and mayonnaise. A dish full of taste and full of flavours. I love this sunny summer time! Fingers crossed for Saturday… wedding day is coming and I do hope it’ll be a day full of sunshine and joy xxx

Smoked salmon

2AC4B33D-6342-45AD-8CCA-91D42F668226Summer food, summer salad. Makes me happy. Enjoying the sunshine. Holidayfeeling all the way. Smoked salmon goes perfectly with dill. Doesn’t grow yet in my little garden, but it’s worth considering it. Although it’s not my fabourite herb, but with salmon it’s an absolutely must!

Mixed salad with tomatoes, cucumber and sweet corn. A vinaigrette with 1 spoon light mayonnaise and 2 spoons light yogurt. And of course some dill in it. I also added a boiled egg. Did you know they are very healthy (full of proteins) and that you can eat upon two eggs a day?

Shrimps and shrimps… and again shrimps… I just ❤️ them

When you can’t get enough of shrimps! I could eat them in the morning, at noon and in the evening. I absolutely adore them. If you buy them in the supermarket, definately go for the grey shrimps (« grijze Noordzee garnalen ») @Delhaize. The best ones!

Invited in my brother’s place and trying to guess what he’s preparing us. He boiled some eggs and is peeling shrimps. I also see lettuce, carrots and tomatoes on the table. For sure, the rules for our healthy eatprogram will be respected tonight. Yes, me happy!

The final result, « tomates crevettes » or skinless tomatoes filled with a mixture of grey shrimps, boiled eggs, parsley and mayonnaise. A real belgian dish!

BBQ-time

EFFA8E01-F8E5-4F00-A12D-8103DFC95729It was a tough weekend! Sunshine all around, 26ºC, invited on Saturday for a BBQ and on Sunday for a dinner. Thinking about the tips & tricks from the nutritionist… How am I going to survive this?

Apero: cava with appetizers. Two glasses of cava and we didn’t touch the cheese cubes neither the fried croquettes. Went for a couple of olives.

One merguez and one marinated chicken breast, and really a lot of vegetables: cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, cauliflower, lettuce,…

TIP: instead of adding real mayonnaise, we prepared a dressing with 1 spoon of mayonnaise light, 2 spoons of fat/sugar free yogurt (Danone activia nature 0%) and chives. So fresh and so nice!

Some white rice with quinoa on top. We never had such a « think about what you choose » – BBQ before! And I even enjoyed two glasses of rosé wine. You see, you can enjoy those sunny days on a healthy way xxx

Grilled chicken with vegetables

09AEE0E0-EF3C-4CAE-ABA7-4E63A3DF8345Trying to keep on being original in my lunch combinations, while respecting as much as possible my diet rules. You can’t go wrong with a salad at noon. The only risk is to get borred very soon, especially if you don’t like much vegetables. I’m really difficult…

Fresh salad with tomatoes, cucumber and red onion. The basic salad let’s say. Accompanied with grilled chicken. Stays a classic dish, but I so love it!

Yesterday’s lunch

94FECA9E-5D00-4CF9-A785-36E06933D630Didn’t had time yesterday to post the picture of my lunch. Was a really busy working day and on top of that I forgot to prepare my lunchbox. Always a difficult moment, because in our company restaurant you are tempted to choose the fried dishes or the pasta dishes with a lot of sauce…

But I didn’t. I went straight away to the salad bar corner and created myself this beautiful and colourful lunch, full of vegetables. What a good girl! I took a small piece of       « américain préparé » and two spoons of « taboulé ». Healthy lunch yeah!

Spaghetti Bolognaise

26F2DABD-C32A-415D-8FBF-1AB5BE86713AI know, I know. I’ve posted already so many times pictures of this pasta recipe. Can’t help it, it stays one of my favourite lunch dishes: Spaghetti bolognaise.

You do know that in Italy they don’t do this bolognaise thing? It’s a belgian « creation » thinking we have italian habits, haha! In Italy they have the « al ragù » pasta that is quite similar, but you’ll also find many different recipes of it. And they don’t limit it to spaghetti, they also serve it with penne or tagliatelle.

My homemade sauce is prepared with onions, minced beef and tomatoes. Nothing else. Just perfect. And I love this picture!
