Healthy habits

Hello!

It’s the week 2 of lockdown here, it was meant to be lifted tomorrow but it has been extended for another week. My routines are completely off, I’m not wasting enough energy throughout the day so when I’m going to bed I can’t just fall asleep as I usually do as soon as I put my head on the pillow, and I’m dreaming alot and I wake up exhausted.

A couple of weeks ago I went to have my blood test done, and it came back last week. My cholesterol was a bit high, not much, just need to make a few changes, but was also lacking in b12, Iron and Vitamin D and my immune system was a bit down.

As I went vegetarian for about 3 months, I really increased my saturated fat I think as I’m not the best to cook wholesome food without meat, so now I’ve started to incorporate meat again – only organic though, and will exclude dairy and unhealthy fats as much as possible instead.

These are now some of my favourite food staples.

I’ve been doing 30 minutes of HIIT workouts in the morning for a couple of days, and tries to spend 30 minutes in the sun too. It’s just really hard with the lockdown as well, I don’t leave the apartment unless I absolutely need too. I just really hope that it will be over next week.

Blueberry milk porridge

I got a new favorite breakfast! I am not much for oats for breakfast usually as it’s a bit to..plain? But its super filling and it’s easy to up the calories for a steady breakfast. I simply boiled 1 dl of oats with 2,5 dl of water for about 4 minutes, added 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 1 tablespoon of vanilla protein powder, let it simmer for another minute or two. Transfer to a bowl, added sliced bananas, blended 1 dl of fresh blueberries with 1 dl of oat milk and poured it of the porridge. Tadaaaa, yum!
