My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 54


Ok, I have to start with a confession here: I can’t cook buckwheat. I tried to make some for lunch yesterday, and I miserably failed: while I should have brought it to a boil and then left to simmer for 10 minutes under a lid, I continued cooking it at full power without a lid, which naturally resulted in the thing being overcooked.

But never mind, I thought, it would make a great porridge for the next morning. Which it did! I added coconut milk and a bit of stevia to the buckwheat and cooked it a little more, and here I am having it with chopped dates, blueberries, figs, cocoa nibs and a cup of black coffee!

  • 1/4 cup plain yoghurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon matcha
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 date

In the need to refuel after an intense resistance workout, I make myself a delicious smoothie consisting of:

  • One tablespoon almond butter
  • Half teaspoon almond extract
  • One banana
  • One scoop chocolate flavoured protein powder
  • One chopped date
  • Two teaspons Bioglan Superfoods Supergreens Cacao Boost powder (optional)

Smoothies – Day 2 – Chocolate-Banana-Date


I generally don’t have a sweet tooth, but I do get occasional sweet cravings every now and then, and this smoothie should be a perfect healthy solution.

To make it, I simply mix the following ingredients in the blender:

  • Half cup coconut milk (feel free to use cow/soy/rice/almond/hemp or whatever milk instead)
  • Two tablespoons of plain yoghurt
  • One large frozen banana
  • Two large dates, chopped up
  • One tablespoon of unsweetened cacao powder
  • A pinch of cinnamon
