Breakfast Pulled Beef

Easy peasy meal prep for even the most stressed cooks.

As temperatures get a little lower (which I am extremely happy about), and autumn peeking around the corner, I am in the mood for something different for breakfast. Something warming, comforting and hearty, keeping me satieted many hours. I like my easy cheesecake, but now I’m not cutting anymore and can afford to eat something different. However, even if you are cutting at the moment, this recipe could be for you: you just have to be smart about the cut of meat to use. Continue reading “Breakfast Pulled Beef”

Bear-pleasing Quick Choc Pot

…and it’s vegan and gluten-free too, if you use the right chocolate!

Originally the choc-pot was the filling of a Jamie Oliver no-bake chocolate tart: a very rich but quite calorie-friendly dessert which we’ll share with you soon. What if you do not want to/need to/can make a whole tart but you want to indulge in a chocolatey dessert?

Ground Beef Mapo Tofu Style

Szechuan Inspired Umami Bomb

I love Szechuan cuisine! There is a nice Szechuan restaurant in Vienna (Meister Xiao – go for it if you are in Vienna!) a couple of minutes away from us and they are serving gorgeous dishes. One of my favourites is mapo tofu: ground beef or pork, silky tofu, black beans and abundant spicy oil made from chili, szechuan pepper and broad bean paste. It’s served with fluffy, delicious, steamed rice. Guess what? It did not fit in my macros πŸ˜‰ but we had similar ingredients at home and developed the following cut-friendly recipe adding also some more veggies. Give it a try, if you love spicy flavours as we do!

The Very Low Calories Dessert #2

Budino al cocco

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!

As temperatures climb above the 30Β°C threshold, my mood goes down and all I want is a cool place to relax and some sort of icecream.

Try it out and thank me later!
