It has been a chocolate overload these last weeks!
I have ‘unconsciously’ promoted chocolate to become the star component of my breakfasts (I blame it on all the Sinterklaas candy of course, can’t let that chocolate go to waste ;)).
So starting yesterday, I’ve been trying to stay away from the chocolate and I must admit I’m having a hard time doing so…
I sleepwalked through the entire day and didn’t feel remotely human until I was standing in down dog at my yoga class. First I thought I was just tired or getting a cold but later that evening it hit home:
It’s called sugar withdrawal, honey!
To combat my fatigue I’ve been relying on some of my other favourite foods:
Peanut Butter Crumpets!
Lunch today was packed with vitamins to boost my energy levels and make me forget I ever even craved sugar!
‘Microwaved Sweet Potato’
Sweet potato is a super easy and energy boosting lunch.
You can prepare them in the oven of course, but when I’m pressed for time I just pop them in the microwave: wash and dry the potato, pick some holes in it with a fork or a toothpick and wrap a paper towel around it. Microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes (depending on its size).
When done just slice it open in the middle and add a dollop of Greek yoghurt, hummus or your favourite nut butter.
This is what my new favourite salad looks like: mixed greens, khaki, cottage cheese and dried berries on top. Some avocado would make it even more sublime.
