I knew last night when I went to bed that my second day fast this week was going to be a tough one. I’m not sure if it is mentally because I already had that mind-set that way, well what I do know was that it has been a challenge today!
I started out this morning with a rocking spinning class and even though my legs were very sore and tired from yesterdays workout I killed it today. I was really focusing on the strokes, the power, the time and calories burned, that way I can really give it all!
After class it has just been one thing after another and I think when we finally sat down to have dinner it was 7pm and I made another version of the famous “tomato soup”. I’m thinking about becoming a professional Tomato Soup Maker…lol
Anyhow, the soup turned out to be another perfect recipe that goes hand in hand with the 5:2 diet and has less than 500 calories!
This makes 2 servings (approx. 325 calories)
1 Can of diced tomatoes
4 tablespoons Salsa
2 dl water (I used more to make it less thick)
1 Chopped Garlic clove
1/2 chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup Green Lentils
1 bag Zero Noodles (I use scissors to chop them in smaller pieces)
200 grams Shrimps
2 tablespoons Sour cream
10 grams of Mexican cheese
Fry the garlic and onion together (no oil or butter) and mix water, tomatoes, bouillon, salsa, lentils and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Use a mixer to make the soup smooth add the sour cream and the noodles and re heart. Add the shrimps and the cheese, sprinkle on some Chili Flakes and enjoy!
