Workout + Quick Meal

I have not really been exercising lately. My friend Maria told me earlier this summer about Helsinki Core Trainers where she trains in the Bootcamp group. So today I finally joined her for the first time. The work out was HARD but really effective. I will go again later this week!

Earlier last year when I was training with a personal trainer I learned that after the work out you are supposed to eat quickly (like within 30 minutes). So when I came home I started to cook something simple and fast.

 I was too hungry to get my DSLR Camera, so this is a Instagram picture.

This is what I ended up eating. For protein I had some shrimp and cottage cheese. For veggies I choose salad, cucumber and marinated tomatoes and spring onions mixed with the shrimp. I also boiled some buckwheat on the side.

Recipe for the marinade

  • olive oil
  • vinegar
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a pinch of brown sugar
  • black pepper

Mix all together with the ingredients you want to marinate. Enjoy your meal!

You can easily vary this recipe and choose different kind of vinegars. This time I used apple vinegar spiced with raspberry and peach.

 Luckily I had my bicycle to get home. I would have been too tired to walk after the workout.

Do you need help with workout food ideas? Would you like me to post more of this kind of food tips?
