Spanish Chicken

Originally posted on Over the Billows:

I’m a big fan of recipes that can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less for those days when you get home from work and just want to flop on the sofa with a bowl of something hot and tasty. I had a fairly rubbish day at the office yesterday, so Mike and I pulled out an old favourite: Spanish chicken. It was ready in 25 minutes and is spectacularly easy.

Ingredients:

(Serves 3-4)

~ 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
~ 1 large onion, sliced
~ 1 red bell pepper, sliced
~ 8 chicken thighs, boned (or drumsticks – not chicken breast)
~ 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika (smoked or regular – I like smoked in this)
~ 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
~ 1 good-quality chorizo sausage
~ A handful of your favorite olives (I like green, Mike likes black – I won last night!)
~ A 400g tin of butter beans (the best ones are the fancy artisan…

It has been unusually very warm here in Oslo, newspaper was talking about the record-breaking sales of ice cream this year. Yeah, I believe it. It has been so hot and I also craved cold vanila ice cream! Under the inviting blue sky people are also cooking BBQ so often that they are probably tired of hotdogs, hamburgers and potato salad by now.  How about something different for a change? Something light and refreshing and yet nutiritious with an oriental twist? This salad I am presenting in this post is a typical summer salad with spinach, Enoki mushroom, shrimps, bean noodle served with soy-sauce based oriental salad dressing. Some of the ingredients may sound a little obscure but they are available at asian grocery stores (at least in Oslo where I live. I go to a store called Scanasia, Youngsgate 6 in Oslo, vis-avis Generius Shopping Center near Brugata…

Morning Motivators – Why That Morning Workout Is Good For You In More Ways Than You May Think

Originally posted on Kettlebells and Cookies:

You may have read my post earlier on “How to be a morning person” and scoffed that you will never be a morning person and couldn’t dream of getting up before the sun is up.  Well, as a bit of a fan of early mornings, I thought you may find it interesting to learn why you may want to become a morning exerciser and the benefits it has over and above the calorie burn.

1. No excuses – the workout will actually happen! 

How many afternoon or evening workouts get cut short or don’t happen due to phone calls, deadlines, meetings running late or family commitments? Quite a few I bet! Working out in the morning means it’s done, and can’t be interrupted later by things popping up.  This also builds routine and consistency – great if you are someone who finds that ‘life always gets in the…

Changing My Words, Changing My Life

Originally posted on My Journey to Healthy:

This month I had a goal of 930 minutes of activity for the month. I have met and exceeded this goal. I have done 1060 minutes of exercise this month. I am on my way to a 5K! 

 

 
So, as you know, I have one coming in November. The other one I want to do is at Disneyland in California in May 2015. I live in Maryland. I really want to do it! My friend posted a picture the other day talking about changing your language will change your life. So, as I was thinking about this 5K across the country, the first thing that came to mind was, “I can’t afford to do this.” First of all, it is $70 to register. We would need a hotel for at least one night, plus airfare. All of this times two. Well, I REALLY want to do this. How…
