The easiest stir fry there ever was. 🙃 not a joke. Y’all this is so yummy and good and quick to make. We already know I’m obsessed with @veeteeusa rice 🍚... so I obviously used rice in this dish. .
@veeteeusa brown rice & quinoa + left over roasted broccoli + roasted/sautéed red peppers and onions + left over chicken tenderloins (all spiced up with salt less seasoning) + Thai peanut sauce 😋
I wasn’t lying. I literally used all left overs. It’s a go too when I don’t have a lot of time to cook dinner from scratch and a great way to get all of my nutrients 🤓 #glutenfree too!
Happy Thursday 😚

This page was never intended to b religious. I do not believe in exerting any of my beliefs (religion - politics - health & nutrition - parenting - life) on anyone. I do however always say that i am Muslim FIRST and then i am everything else. It is therefore that i do speak of my religion as part of my journey. It plays an integral part in who i am and THAT is wot i share here. Islam is perfect but its followers r not, i am far from being the perfect Muslim. Dont judge my faith or my religion by the actions of humans who r all fallable. So if u r only here for recipes, then this page is really not for u.
Sometimes i wish i had known then wot i know now. The years have really seen me change in so many ways. My body changing was only one part of it. I started writing on this page, many weeks after it started up. Initially i just posted recipes then as time went by i shared more... Today i sat infront of a colleague, who really knows very little about who i am tho we know eachother over a year. "Caashifa...how long did iit take before u fell pregnant? " I was taken aback at first since it was totally random. "Dr X said i should speak to u, that u used to b bigger" she says shyly. I smile and answer her questions. My office mate then adds, "follow her on Facebook and Instagram then u will c how". I laughed bcos its not something i tell many people at work tho some of them r on both my accounts.
I opened my Facebook page and we started chatting. I could see she needed it. I asked her to read my post which i just recently reposted..."i was 20 wen i was first diagnosed with metabolic syndrome"...It was the first time i realised the impact of my written words. I feel it wen i write it. I cry as i remember. I reflect before i pen and sometimes wen i re-read my posts i cry all over again or laugh out loud.
There i was, watching her face and feeling my emotions escalate. I know each word and as she raises her hand toward her mouth and exhale, i feel the tears pushing against my lids. There, right there i was enveloped by gratitude. I got to my office, closed the door and let it rip.
Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies (I doubled the recipe. A pretty cheap recipe to make and they last for days! Pretty healthy, too.) 2/3 cup pumpkin purée
1 cup nut butter (almond, peanut, sunflower)
1/2 cup instant oatmeal
1/2 portion/scoop vanilla protein powder
2 Tablespoon honey
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans
***optional 1/4 cup dried cranberries
Mix all ingredients together in bowl
Spoon balls of mix on lightly greased pan
350 degrees in oven 12-15 minutes
Great for breakfast with coffee or hot tea! (Although this isn’t my cookie, it is an image of what the cookie has in it and resembles)
How many meals do I have in a day?
🌟On a regular day I attempt sticking to 3 full meals that incorporate a carb, protein and fat
🌟I try to maintain about 4-5 hours between meals depending on the day that I have scheduled
🌟Generally speaking I keep my larger quantities of simple/complex carbohydrates both pre/post workout when I am most active and can utilize them most
🌟I tend to have higher fat and protein ratios when I am least active within a day
🌟Lastly snacking- I tackle this with one snack a day if I feel necessary. My reasoning behind this is because for me a snack turns into a meal and I’m usually just eating out of boredom or distraction
🌟YES I do count my macros but I use it as a tool to gage my good and bad days, and to recognize the nutrient quality of various foods I consume. It is not something I rely on but rather use to expand my “food knowledge.” It is NOT NECESSARY for you to be successful in your health and nutrition goals.
🌟If you have any questions don’t hesitate to DM me #happythursdayyall#monstafitness

Food is good. Food that you don't have to make is better. Food that is good for you that you can pick up and eat all day long is better-est. Our one day meal plan is here for you. Check our story for what's included or order through the link in our bio.
Finally it feels like Spring is here!! The sun is shining here in Madrid, calling for a nice FRESH PESTO SALAD 🥗 so refreshing on a hot day and makes for the perfect light lunch!
LOS INGREDIENTES 📝
1 cup basil
1/4 cup pine nuts (or substitute sunflower seeds or almonds)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 garlic clove (minced)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mixed fresh leaves
Integral rotini pasta
Bring water to the boil, add a generous pinch of salt and olive oil, then cook pasta until al dente (according to packet).
Whilst cooking, make pesto! First add nuts to a food processor and pulse for coarse powder.
Add the rest of the pesto ingredients and blend until it forms a paste.
Add more olive oil, salt and pepper if necessary!
Prepare salad by pitting the olives, halving the cherry tomatoes and finely cutting a small piece of onion and the sun-dried toms. Mix together in a large salad bowl with both the leaves, chopped apple and avocado.
Once pasta is cooked, place in a colander and run under a cold tap until cool. Mix pesto and pasta in a separate bowl to begin with, then to the salad with some extra pesto. Give a quick mix before serving! 😋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Day 9, still alive.
Experimenting tonight for tomorrow's lunch.
Last year, I tried Sushi for basicslly the first time, because that's who I was, and had a crazy delicious combo of 🥑avocado, yam and cucumber . Bit of soya sauce on top. It was the Bees Knees. I had all the ingredients, threw it all together for tomorrow.
Obviously, doesn't taste as good, I'm no chef, 🙇 but at least it's healthy?
Y’all... let me introduce you to my latest guilty pleasure. These little bars right here are so crazy tasty and filled with real foods. I love it when I can look at a label and read the contents and I actually know what I am eating. I try my best to make food from scratch at home and not spend my money on processed garbage. An occasional bar on the go is super convenient and I am so glad that @rxbar has provided me with a whole food product that fits my busy mom life. And side note... thank you to @krogerco for Free Friday. I love being able to try new products that I may not typically purchase. Your marketing trick totally led me to a product I love! .
