Whilst trying to clean long forgotten paint brushes this morning, it struck me that I needed a bit of a plan. The first part of the plan, I decided, is that I’m going to search for some inspiration on a 5 day Healthy eating plan for the kids.
We’re already a pretty healthy bunch but one great thing about documenting what you cook, is that I’ve realised week on week it’s all a bit samey!! Time to change that.
The second thing is that Tahlia has inspired me to get my running shoes on again…..eeekkkkk!!! Now, I’m motivated enough to hit the gym and I attend workout sessions on a regular basis (4-5 times per week) but I mainly focus on core strength and body conditioning. Time to up my game! Twice last week I ran 2km on top of my normal gym sessions and my goodness…..it was hard!!! But I did it and was pretty proud of myself.
My aim & mentality with fitness and food is that it’s all about balance.
I eat because I absolutely love food and I work out because it makes me feel strong and good about myself. I believe in fit, not skinny. I believe eat delicious food and enjoy life, but with a good healthy dose of balance.
Therefore, this evening I’m going to search for food and running inspiration and I’ll come up with my plans.
Meanwhile, this evenings dinner for my little cherubs is already sorted. If you’re looking for inspiration for a quick after school dinner, then I hope you find this useful…
I’m hoping these will be met with approval by my kids. I quickly sliced up some partially defrosted Cod fillets. I whizzed 3 slices of brown bread in the mixer to make breadcrumbs. Next, I rolled a Cod strip into some plain flour, then into beaten egg and lastly covered it in the breadcrumbs. I did this for all of the Cod, in total it took me less than 10 minutes. I put them onto a baking sheet and they are waiting in the fridge until after school. You’ll note that I’ve left out herbs, which is usually a must for any of my cooking! My youngest is going through a bit of a fussy stage, so I therefore decided to keep it all quite plain. I will however, serve with homemade wedges and some Veg or Salad. Not forgetting a big splodge of Ketchup! Give it a go! I’ll share the cooked results later 🤞🏻
