Letscho is a popular dish in Austria, originally from Hungary and mainly consists of peppers, tomato and onions. Traditionally it is combined with bacon and served as a main dish, but in Austria it is prepared with even more vegetables and therefore considered a side. Continue reading “Pork Loin Letscho”
First of all, credits to Anastasia Zinchenko, PhD from Science Strength who posted a very yummie dessert on her Instagram profile: a chocolate pudding with 100kcal per 1,5 liters! By the way, follow her if you want some evidence-based knowledge gains, diet motivation and some very badass powerlifting and bodybuilding action!
As I did not have exactly the same ingredients as the original recipe, I developed my own version, which is extremly simple, quick and versatile. One of my favorites is the “budino al cocco” (coconut pudding in Italian). It has approximately 20kcal for 0,75 liters and it’s therefore the perfect treat for you sweet-toothy-hard-dieting folks. Enough talking: here is the recipe!
But wait, fat makes me fat, right?! Now you should already know the answer: it’s all about the calorie deficit at the end of the day and like carbs, fats are neither good nor bad. Nevertheless, fat is really energy dense: 10 gramms of fat (approx. a tea spoon) have huge 90 kcals. This means that, you should not indulge in those tasty “healthy” low-carb-paleo-keto-raw-gluten free-vegan nut bars if you are trying to lose body fat ;). So what’s the deal with fats, now? Let’s have a closer look through the biochemist’s googles.
Have a look at the picture below if you do not know what a granita is: it’s a delicious Italian dessert with -probably- Arabian roots. We eat it especially in summer but to be honest it is like ice cream: it is always time for it ;-).
But zero calories ice cream? Are you kidding me?
Stefan and I are dieting and especially for me there is no much room for delicious ice cream and generally gorgeous high caloric treats, like dark chocolate and nut butter. This is also the reason why both of them are in the cellar right now 😉 but more about this issue later. That’s why we developped the recipe below.
Long story short: here is the solution for all of you coffee lovers and sweet tooth people: it is refreshing, it is sweet and it teleports you in Piazza Navona in Rome when you eat it. You can use coffein-free coffee too -as we do- so that you can have this treat also in the evening.
Makes two big servings
three ice-cube trays (each ca. 250 ml water)
three teaspoons instant coffee (it makes it more fluffy)
Blend everything in a powerful blender. Enjoy. A lot.
As most if not all of our recipes, it’s a mothership: vary it, experiment with it, make it better and have fun! Of course, let us know how we could do it even better 😉
…with cacao (no zero calories, but awesome)
…with matcha (add a bit more water)
…with the juice and zest of one lemon
Success! You're on the list.

Currently, it is a real hot topic, especially since many countries have introduced a sugary drink tax and low-carb and keto diet are becoming very popular among the broad public. Is it the right way to go in order to lose fat? Yes. And no.
No matter if I am cutting or bulking, I have this cheesecake every single day for breakfast, adding some milk kefir, skyr or fruits depending on the needs. Isn’t that awesome? If it fits my macros (I am 160cm petite), it should also fit in yours 😉
