My Day in Healthy Recipes (1)

Besides that I eat lactosefree as much as possible, I also eat glutenfree now since about ten days. The reason for this is that I got very bad stomach pains basically everytime I ate something. I decided to eliminate gluten for a month and see if it makes a difference. Well, I can tell you it does. Already after the first days I noticed that I barely had any stomach pain - and everytime I sneakily ate something with gluten - I could feel it in my stomach right after.

Today's task is to post a healthy recipe. Now you'd think that if you don't eat gluten or lactose, it's quite hard to find something you can eat, right? For me this isn't the case, as I can tolerate bits of lactose in for example cheese and chocolate. The rest I replace with either soy milk or water.

In this post I'll give you an overview of what I could eat during a day - I describe a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner and will try to make it as healthy as possible.

Today is legday which means I go to the fitness studio to train my legs and other muscles as well. Therefore I try to pay extra attention to what I eat. The pictures and recipes below are NOT from today -as I didn't plan this post ahead, and forgot to buy all the necessary ingredients. 

 Porridge with banana and cinnamon
For this you'll need 1 cup of oats, 1,5 cup of water/milk, half a teaspoon salt, a banana and cinnamon.
For this porridge I use water and glutenfree oats. Sometimes I replace the water with soy milk which gives a richer taste. It doesn't matter how much oats you use, but make sure you use slightly more water than oats - as the oats absorb a lot of the water and you don't want it to become all stiffened. Put the oats and water in a bowl, and mix the salt in. Place it in the microwave on 800W for 3-4 minutes. Add the banana and sprinkle some cinnamon over the top. Banana is good to eat before sports as it gives you necessary energy.

(Picture from pixabay - I couldn't find a single good picture from my own porridge, it somehow always looks like vomit - so here's one from the internet, but you get the idea, right? :)

Bread with avocado and bruschetta 
For this you'll need 2 slices of bread/crackers, humus (optional), 1 avocado, a handfull of mini-tomatoes or 1 big tomato, salt, pepper and garlic (optional)
When i come home from sports, i eat my lunch which consists of two or three pieces of glutenfree bread with avocado and bruschetta. Avocado is good to eat after workout because it helps the muscles recover faster. Slice the avocado in half, get the good green stuff out and mash it in a bowl. Add a little bit of salt and pepper. I use lemonpepper because I like that the best. You can choose to put butter or humus on the breads first, but that isn't necessary. Cut the tomato in tiny cubes and sprinkle them over the bread with avocado. Finish with extra salt, pepper or garlic.

Vegetables from the oven (vegetarian)
You'll need 1 squash, 1 aubergine, a box of mushrooms, 1 onion, 1 paprika, rasped cheese, parsley, a few potatoes (optional) and some salt and pepper.
This is a really easy dinner to make. Slice all the vegetables in cubes or slices or whatever shape you want, and mix them together with some oil in an ovenproof dish. Cover the top with potatoes and cheese or with cheese only. I would recommend using cooked potatoes but I tried it with uncooked potatoes as well and that went fine too. Finish with salt and pepper for extra taste. Bake in the oven for app. 20-30 minutes on 200C.

Have you tried any of these recipes before?
