After last week's horrible eating, it's time for me to get back on the wagon. By the end of last week, I felt gross and bloated. I hate feeling like that so it's time to re-stock the freezer. I've been a busy little lady this afternoon. I cleaned out and re-organized the fridge. I finally used one of the 2 heads of cauliflower I bought last week. I cut it up and roasted half of it with garlic, olive oil and lemon. Easily reheated or eaten cold.

|Smoked Salmon Mini Quiche|
1/4 cup of flax meal
1 TBSP of hemp seeds
2 TBSP of egg whites
dash of salt
Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Divide in half and press into an oiled ramekin.
You could probably skip this next step if you want but I like a crunchy crust so I opted to bake the crust for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
Let crust cool and pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
1 generous handful of spinach, roughly chopped.
1/2 tbsp of olive oil + a splash of water to sautee spinach in.
1 large piece of smoked salmon cut into pieces
1 TBSP of goat cheese
2/3 cup of egg whites
1/2 tsp of dill (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Sautee spinach in oil and water until wilted. Add to ramekin. Add cut up salmon. Beat egg and egg whites, season with salt and pepper, add dill if using and mix in. Divide evenly between ramekins. Break up goat cheese and drop into egg mixture.
Place on top rack of oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until mostly set. I tried not to cook them until completely done as I will be re-heating them for breakfast and didn't want them to be over cooked.
That will be my breakfast tomorrow. Can't wait! I just finished cooking chicken burgers from a Martha Stewart recipe that I tweaked a bit. Will have to post that one later on this week. I am hoping to be able to make this recipe later on this evening, I'll just have to figure out what flour to substitute as I'm running very low on almond meal. I do love me some pound cake and this one looks pretty darn good. I'll have to remember to portion and freeze it asap so I don't eat half of it one go!
Despite my busy week, I still managed a decent week of training. I worked really late on Thursday so I was planning on taking Friday as my day off. It's just as well, I was totally zonked by then. This is how it all went down this week.
Monday: 1600m swim
Tuesday: a.m. 2.96km on the treadmill at the gym + 40 minute weight workout. P.M. 9.82 km tempo with hills.
Wednesday: 2200m swim. Desperately needed massage in P.M.
Thursday: Easy-ish 8km in High Park - no weights.
Saturday: Long run 27.66 km
Sunday: 2600m swim +1 hour on the trainer.
Totals for the week:
Bike: 1 hour
+ 40 minutes of strength training. Just over 8 hours of workouts this week. Not bad. I suspect that total will start to climb along with my mileage over the next few weeks. Crunch time is coming!
What did you get up to this weekend?
