How was your Sunday? Good, I hope. Mine was great - right after breakfast my mom and I drove to Lake Bled for a walk, then we had lunch & relaxed for a couple of hours. Family time is so important, don't you agree? Around 4p.m. I had a snack, and then went to pick up my boyfriend at the train station - he was also spending some time with his family. At 7p.m. we had a very intensive 30min workout in 'nature' (the city park, but still very quiet haha), and now we're home. We're thinking about going out tonight to see the bonfire, are you going too? See you there maybe (:

Apparently the last couple of days I'm extra inspired to cook & create new dishes. I've just recently discovered my love for buddha bowls, not only because they taste great and are super healthy, but also because I LOVE to prepare food & make it look yummy! Here's one of my favourites: black rice, asparagus, butter beans, cabbage, broccoli, zucchini, and cucumber. I cook the veggies and rice (except the cabbage, I fry that on a tsp of olive oil just until it turns a bit brown on the edges), and then just put it all in a bowl! I only add salt, because I'm sadly still not allowed to eat spicy food, but I recommend some pepper, curry, cumin, or whatever you like! You can add the spices to the rice or veggies, as you wish.
Have the best Saturday ever, talk to you tomorrow!
So since I've been getting a lot of questions on Instagram about how I prepare my food lately, I've decided to share a recipe I've actually just discovered - and perfected :D It's actually based on a banana bread recipe I found on one of those chaotic food websites, and with a couple of improvements it turned out amazing! My babe Sonia came over for brunch today, so I baked banana bread, chopped a ton of fruit, and made some coffee.
Here's the banana bread recipe & all about it:
WHY BANANA BREAD?
Sometimes (well let's face it, most of the time) I have terrible sugar cravings. This bread is super sweet, but no actual sugar is added - I'm sweetening it with honey. Not to mention it's high in potassium and protein, so it's perfect for breakfast (or brunch, or dinner, or snacks, or anytime really hahah).
