    Keeping my strength at 30 - food log

    Hi there,

    Last weekend I turned 30 and took a minute to look back and forward. Nitrition wise I can improve a lot. The combination of a busy job, living alone and just life, makes that I'm often tired when coming home and don't have the energy to cook and eat healthy. Last year was a journey to find my way back to running, and that seems to work out. Now it's time to focus more on my self care on other areas, like nutrition, cook more and cook healthy meals.

    With the plates section thas has come out last weekend, it's like it had to be. So I'm making a start with trying to follow Modern hero mealplan combined with the plates section. I'll not be very strict, to avoid disappointment. I don't really need to loose weight, although I'd like to loose 1-2 kg to get back on my original weight when my life was just pre-injury. My weight is healthy.
    My goal is to get enough of the essentials, so I can be healthy and more energised. And my priority lies with dinner first.

    PLATE: Green beans, chicken burger, rice

    I made a few changes to the recipe, due to availability (or lack) of some ingredients.

    Chicken burger: I used spiced bread crumbs instead of ground oats. I made burgers of 100 g chicken mince following the advise from the protein section of the modern hero mealplan. I baked them in a pan with olive oil (healthy fat section). It was really delicious!

    Brown rice: By accident made 1 cup rice instead of 1/2. Spiced it up after cooking with some dried thyme and basil
    Green beens: Took 200 g of green beans. Spiced it up with nutmeg

      A turkey farm round our way sells fresh turkey burgers flavoured with onion and parsley, very tasty.

                  NancyTree I usually go for lamb at Indian or Afghani restaurants coz we don't have lamb very often at home.

                          Fremen pears are a good idea! I never buy them because it gives such a mess and that's inconveniant at work. But when I eat them with breakfast, it's no problem 😊
