Bacon – the most important ingredient??

Hey y’all

The rain is poring down in Aarhus at the moment – it feels like fall. And all I really want to do, is to crawl into bed, with a cup of tea and a good movie or book (and my boyfriend). How ever no time for that, so even tho’ Gossip Girl is running in the background, re-decorating my bedroom is what’s going down 🙂

Yesterday we made burgers, mini-burgers!
With homemade mayo and bacon w. brown sugar, paprika and chili.
So yummi! it’s insane 🙂

So you take a piece of bacon – not the pre-sliced kind, but the kind you slice yourself!
And 3-4 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of chili flakes and 1 tablespoon of paprika, and pour it over the bacon, that you’ve sliced yourself 🙂

In the oven it goes, at 200 degrees, for 20-25 min 🙂
It’s insanely good! and usable in burger, or as a side for a BBQ-night 🙂 bacon

Food for the soul: Bacon-corn

Hey lovelies! The other day, a couple of my friends and I, was in this restaurant in Aarhus, Denmark (where I live). It’s called Memphis Roadhouse, and is a BBQ all in American 🙂 And one of the side dishes, was corn, bacon and butter mixed in all together and heated. It was sooooo good!! Okay, maybe not in track with clean eating, but with a bit of good will, it would fall right into the LCHF-lifestyle, right? 😉

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 strips bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 ears corn, cleaned
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Pancakes – on the healthy side!

Hey guys! So as you all know, I’ve started to cut down on carbs, and basically that doesn’t really match with pancakes – or does it? It’s not completely carbs free, but it is a healthy alternative to the normal pancake, and it is a bit heavier, so you can’t eat 10 of them !FullSizeRender This batch makes about 20 of them (they can be used the day after too, just put them on a toaster for 30 sec’s ;))
you need:
2 eggs
5 dl milk
0.5 dl oats
3 dl wholemeal flour
1 dl flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons of olive oil.

You mix the dry ingredients; then add the olive oil, milk and eggs, and mix it all together, so you have a cohesive mass. And then just go about it as usual; a hot pan, and a spoonful or two of the mixture. Don’t forget to grease the pan 🙂

Serve with sirup, peanut butter or what you like 🙂

Banana muffins on the go – a healthy choice!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Hey guys!

So since I’m trying to live more healthy, with the LCHF and Kayla Itsines BBG program, I have tried to find good eats that is a bit more healthy than normal 🙂 One of them is these banana muffins 🙂

Just a shoutout to the LCHF, I’m a huge fan! you can eat whatever you want – in moderation, and the only thing is, that you have to cut back on carbs, such as bread, rice, pasta and sugar – it doesn’t mean that you can’t have them, you just have to limit your intake! 🙂
But the benefits are huge! I’m feeling way less bloated, so the lower part of my belly is flatter than usual 😉 YAY ;)) and my skin is clearing up, not that I had bad break-outs, but it is already looking more fresh. I’ve only been 100% committed the last three days, but the last 1.5 week, I’ve more or less been living by the LCHF principles 🙂

back to business; Banana muffins 🙂

They are easy to take with you, on the go or breakfast etc. 🙂

you need:
2-4 bananas (mashed) – depending on how intense you like the taste of bananas
2 tablespoons of yogurt
2 egg whites
oats – I don’t have the exact measurements, but until the mixture is kinda runny, but not completely 😉
baking-powder 2 teaspoons
I’ve made two types; one with cinnamon used about 2 tablespoons, and one with chocolate-powder – you can easily use raw-cocoa or “real” chocolate 🙂

The you mix all of it together, and then put in small muffin-tins, and in the oven for about 20-25 min, on 200 degrees 🙂
I prefer the one w. cinnamon, but my boyfriend prefers the chocolate-ones! 😉

Chicken alfredo LCHF style! :)

Hey y’all 🙂 So yesterday was my first real day eating by the LCHF (low carb, high fat). LCHF basically means that you cut down on carbs, and try to avoid sugar. However you can eat loads of fish, eggs, meat, greens. So I started my morning with eating an omelet, with bacon, tomatoes etc. and for drinks? a coffee w. cream. I usually drink my coffee pitch-black, but I read on a “guide-line” about the LCHF that adding cream to your coffee, would a good idea! so I tried that 🙂 The guideline is here, sorry that it’s in Danish! https://www.dietdoctor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/LCHF-for-begyndere2.pdf To the chicken alfredo 🙂 You need: Chicken breats – I used 2 1/2, but I’ve made enough for two times lunch. Butter – enough to brown the chicken Broccoli – as much as you want, cut it into smaller pieces. Cream – 1/2 L Parmesan cheese – a couple of handfuls 😉 2 egg yolks Garlic, onions – 2 onions and 1 clove garlic Mushrooms – 2 1/2 handfulls, cut it nicely 🙂 (I used a bit of port-wine too :)) First cut onions and the garlic, into small pieces, and put it on a large saucepan, with a bit of oil, and let it simmer – be careful that it doesn’t brown too much! Add butter, and let it melt and when it starts to bubble, add the chicken breast, nicely cut into moderate pieces. As I wanted to do this for lunch the next days too, I cut it into bite-sized pieces. Then you let the chicken brown, while doing that you can easily cut the mushrooms, because when the chicken has some not a whole lot, but some color, you add the mushrooms, remember that they contains a lot of water. Then you add the broccoli, and let it cook for about 5 min. Then you add the cream, and bring it to a boil, at this point a put in a tablespoon or two of port-wine. When the cream has reduced a bit, then you add two whipped egg yolks and some parmesan cheese. You are almost there 😉 let it simmer for about 5-7 min, or till it’s reduced to your liking!

If you aren’t following the LCHF, you can use pasta instead of broccoli, or you can mix it. And if you don’t know what to do with the egg-whites, that comes when separating the yolks, then come by here tomorrow, where I’ll be posting my https://gourmandeblog.wordpress.com/2015/03/04/banana-muffins-on-the-go-a-healthy-choice/

BBG & Kayla Itsines

Hey everybody! This is not a food-related post, but a “update”. This Monday I started on the Kayla Itsines fitness program, all my muscles are super sore, but it feels so good! I’ve also cut way back on white bread, pasta, rice and potatoes, and I haven’t felt bloated at all! It’s amazing! Have any of you experience with the LCHF-program? Because I’ve been considering to start living that way, and want to hear what ppl, think of it? 🙂 Shout out to BBG and Kayla Itsines! IMG_0309 IMG_0314
