Monday Beef fajita

monday fajita

1kg/1lbs. Beef

Marinade

2 garlic cloves

1 limejuice

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon chilli  (more if you want to)

1 tablespoon cumin

Salt and Pepper

Fajita

1 egg

1 egg white

Cumin

Chili

Salt and pepper

Guacamole

1 avocado

2 tomatoes

1/3 red onion

½ limejuice

1 garlic clove

Chopped cilantro

Salt and pepper

Red and Green bell pepper to be roasted in the oven till they are warm but still has a texture to them.

Mix everything for the marinade and let it sit in the marinade for an hour (if you don’t have time let it sit for as long you can wait). Meanwhile mash the avocado, chop the tomato, onion, garlic and cilantro mix together. Add limejuice and salt and pepper and store it the fridge.

Fry the meat, not too much at the time because it will start to boil and you will not have the tasty browning. Just before the meat is ready mix together everything for the fajita and fry it like an old fashion omelets 🙂

I served this with spinach, cucumber, tomato and bell pepper. The rest of the family had traditionally tortilla bread with corn, sour cream, taco sauce and cheese.

If it didn’t hurt you didn’t work out hard enough

Yesterday when I woke up my legs were in an insane pain from Fridays workout, but as I always say “If it didn’t hurt you didn’t workout hard enough”. So I decided that it had to be a recovery day, which worked out well because Knut had his first indoor soccer game of the season at 9.15am out in Des Plains. After the game we swung by IKEA where we emptied out the Swedish Food Market, unfortunately for me I could only indulge with my eyes. So when we got home the kids where already happily full of hotdogs and cinnamon rolls so I had to come up with a lunch that would help me to fill up my daily intake of protein.

This is a lot of meat!!!

I’ve decided to prepare zip lock bag with 300g of meat to put in the freezer easily so I can grab one when needed.  Anyhow I started to make a Beef Fajita frying up my 300 grams of Beef Brisket that I seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin, paprika and garlic. Meanwhile this was cooking I whisked together 1 egg, 1 egg white with some salt and pepper and made an omelette and guacamole to go with. I ate half of the meat and guacamole and saved the other half to eat as a “snack”

After lunch it was time for our second game of the day, Wilmette Braves vs. Glenview and the Braves brought it home 5-3. Knowing that the afternoon was coming to an end I walked home from the ice rink before meeting up with the Browns at Pinstripes for dinner. I’ve been a bit nervous about going to a restaurant, especially a restaurant that serves mainly pizza, sandwiches or pasta but it went well I ordered in grilled Chicken with Brussels sprouts with a few adjustments so between the chicken, beef and eggs I believe I reached my protein intake of the day.
