Workout or dinner…

One of my goals to reach this week is to do more exercise. Does it count if I’ve been running, well not literally running, but walked different places in the city? After work, where was quite busy day, I needed to go to the about 5 stores today and I was home just before six. I was so hungry and so tired that I just couldn’t go to walk. Well tomorrow I’ll go to my friends cottage for two nights and there’s lot to do after winter.

But back to today. So I decided to make dinner to myself. I was just bought some chicken breasts and vegetables. I seasoned chicken breasts with Santa Maria’s Mango Curry, pepper and vegetable oil. I pre-heated the oven to 200°C (392°F) and roasted them about 30 minutes.

I also made huge salad me to eat right today and for tomorrows lunch to work. I put there two different kind of lettuce, some cucumber (surprise, surprise!), some bell pepper, two spring onions, some green grapes and three peaches.

I just joined a month ago to Tehy. It’s union of Health and Social Care Professionals and I got gift card in a bookstore for joining. That was just perfect because I’ve been planning to by a cookbook about healthy foods. Today I bought two, or one was kind of free because of the gift card. 

Terveellistä ruokaa vartissa by Pirjo Saarnia is oblivious in Finnish and its translates: Healthy food in 15 minutes. There’s two parts in the book. The first part is about food: which food is healthy, why it’s healthy, why food is important at all. The second part is about recipes and suggestions what people should have in they pantry, refrigeration or freezer. I’ve read one of her books last fall concerning about nutrition. I liked her writing style and she had good everyday examples in there.

The other book is Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite which contain recipes from breakfast to dessert. Some of the recipes looks quite simple and some of them aren’t but I attempt to try most of them.

Have to go to bed now because I have to get up in six hours. Good night, don’t let the bed bugs bite.
