A comforting way to start strong.
I prefer having a hot breakfast over anything else. Yes, even during summer. Somehow it is comforting, a gentle start for a new day. Like a nice warm up for a training session, breakfast should prepare you for the upcoming day and provide energy until lunch. This recipe will do exactly that: it sets you up for an awesome day. Enjoy!

Comforting, creamy, umami.
The rich umami flavour of shii-take mushrooms, soft, almost sweet leeks and a creamy, mild mustard sauce. I was suspicous that I could manage to make a recipe thats fits my tight calorie allotment, but it was surprisingly easy to realise. And very quick to cook up too in a huge bulk that will have you covered with leftofters for the next week. You are welcome!

Comforting and diet friendly.
I’m not sure why stuffing minced meat into a paprika completely transforms both ingredients, but it does. A delicious smell wafting through your home will be a welcome byproduct of this comfort food classic. And it is even super diet friendly! Note on the side: Alexa -our official recipe guinea-pig- tested the stuffed paprika and did like them. She was quite sad that the recipe would not appear on the blog until now. So what are you waiting for, give it a try!

Childhood memories and cowboys.
A really good chilli con carne is a comforting soul food that I can enjoy the whole year. Comforting, but not boring, as I feel a proper chilli con carne needs to be on the edge of being almost too hot. The slightly painful tingle in your mouth is what really elevates this dish from an ordinary stew to something special. Get yourself a spoon and some handkerchiefs to wipe away the sweat and let’s dig in! Continue reading “Chilli Con Carne”
The Light and Protein Packed Version.
I know, Waldorf salad sounds boring, somehow very 80’s and not so exciting as perhaps a duck roast or shortbread. But to be honest I really like it: it’s refreshing, creamy and it has a sentimental component for me. My mum bought it from the butcher and we ate it with all kind of meat. In Italy the meat is usually cooked in a quite boring way (no sauces, scarse seasoning) and the Waldorf salad was a real highlight. The original recipe requires mayonnaise which does not fit in our current macros. Nevertheless, we managed to create a lighter but not less tastier version of it.

Tasty meal preping for dummies.
One of the most common execuses I hear as coach is that people are too busy, especially when it comes to cooking. Nobody seems to have time for it. I see and understand the point: not everyone is a foodie like us who likes spending hours in the kitchen. But you do not need too: it can be so simple! This curry takes about 15 minutes to prepare and you can scale it up for as many hangry bears you need to feed. No excuses of not having time for that!
