RECIPE OF THE WEEK
So today I decided I would change my normal Chicken Rissoles into Chicken Muffins (kind of like Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins)
Basically they turned out AWESOME, and at roughly 121 calories each, they make a perfect meal if you have 2 plus some low energy carbs (GREEN VEGES!!!).
The recipe I used makes 10 and looks roughly like this (I didn’t measure anything that I added so these are guestimates).
Basically it’s 500g Chicken Mince, 1 Onion, 1 carrot, some breadcrumbs, 1 egg (Forgot to add that to the recipe but negligible really), garlic, parsley, linseed, sesame seed, cumin (i used masala by mistake today), mix it together and put into a muffin tray (mine made 10 not 12) and cook on about 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes, I also flipped them over about 30 minutes into cooking to brown the bottoms :)
I also smashed it out at the gym tonight for an “ICE” session (Intense Cardio Exercise).
15 minutes - 2.5km running (1 minute hard, 1 minute easy for 12 minutes of the 15).
1000 m rowing - 4:15 (fricken feet came loose so I had to stop for 5 seconds and tighten them - poor technique I think).
Then I did some core stuff (pretty minor) and hopped on the vibra plate (Also very minor) and did some stretching!
PERFECT ICE SESSION!
YAY it is Friday tomorrow!
Lots of built up scar tissue, apparently not able to run, so I’m replacing with walking and stretching sessions. Just bought me a sweet Foam Roller and stretch band, now just need a wooden end of a broom stick for the really painful stuff.
Getting my dad to send me over some Anti-Flamme from NZ too as it is my favourite cream!
Had a cruisy day today, slept in, worked hard, went to a chartered accountancy focus session this evening and then did some stretching before bed.
Tomorrow I have a Strength and Conditioning Training session to get me toned again. Oh and it is Friday tomorrow, an alcohol free Friday consisting of swimming in the evening followed by the Friday clean my room of the weeks sports outfits ritual.
