Chickpea salad

Hi guys, hope you have a good day 🙂 Today will be another foodie post 🙂

I have been starting to experiment with chickpeas and if you have followed the blog, you probably already saw my previous post about spicy chickpea snacks. If not, you can see it here.

I love chickpeas and could eat them every day. I am not a big fan of dark bread so I’m trying to be creative with my lunch. My colleagues love to see what I have for lunch, because I have different meals almost every day. Yesterday I had this delicious healthy chickpea salad for lunch and I can promise you that my colleagues really loved it. I love chickpeas, and feta and it’s so easy to make. What else does one need? It couldn’t be more perfect.

  • Cooked Chickpeas
  • Avocado

  • Onion,
  • Cilantro – optional
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lime juice

Easy and healthy protein cake

I’m finally home after a wonderful trip to Canada. Before the trip, we girls planned to workout in Canada, but it was simply too hot to run outside; I couldn’t take the heat after two days. During the whole holiday we were treated with all kinds of delicious Indian and Tamil food. We don’t usually eat all that food in Denmark, so of course we couldn’t say no to all the delicious food we were served. Besides the food, we were also caught by the coffe and donuts at Tim Hortons ☺ I already miss all the food and sweets, but I don’t think my body does. I can feel the pounds have set again, so now it’s time to go back to a healthy lifestyle.

We often want to spend the weekend like little children. Yes the food should be good, but still healthy ☺ So here’s the recipe for an easy, delicious and healthy cake that tastes wonderful.

Mix it all in a bowl. Put on some foil and put it in the microwave for approx. 90-120 sec. Depending on how firm you want the cake. Turn the bowl over a plate and voila the cake is ready.
The cake can be topped with a little yogurt, honey, nuts and chocolate sauce. If you want to be completely healthy top it off with only yogurt and fruits.
