Hi darlings! Its day 2 of my new morning routine, and I must admit, it was a little harder to wake up today at 6 am, with my little boy and my partner sleeping beside me, it was so warm and cozy and I felt still tired. So I took a book and read the first 30 minutes instead of getting up. It helped, and I was motivated to go out for a short run. This time I run for 15 minutes, although my goal only was 10. It is a holiday in Austria today, so outside it was very quiet and empty, I enjoy that a lot. When you live in a city, you appriciate every quiet moment you get, at least that is what I do.

Todays recipe is a healthy meal filled with all the nutrients you and your kids need! And the best past is, it takes only 10 minutes to prepare! I love to make those simple meals, and since I become a mom, I have developed some crazy helpful cooking skills that let us enjoy our food within minutes and still keep it super healthy. If you are a mother yourself, you know how easy it is to snack something unhealthy instead of making a profer meal when you have a lack of sleep and getting hungry every hour. My solution: prepare one big meal every day that you can eat whenever you feel hungry. That have always worked for me. Always have a lot of fruits, nuts, legumes and veggies at home, and dont buy unhealthy snacks, thats the only way you can be sure to get the right kind of food and nutrients your body needs.

Today I havent manage to work during the day because I was alone at home with my little boy, but we had a great 1 st of may, and enjoyed many hours in the park and took a long power nap at the afternoon. Some days need to be like this, and I really enjoy the summer weather here in Austria right now.

Very nice. You might want to have a little brown rice with lentils so that you get the full branched chain amino acids.

That is such a great advice! Thank you for letting me know how to make it even healthier;) So sweet!

It's a pleasure. I actually prefer lentil curry with a bit of rice. It's a great mix of flavours.

I made some again today, and enjoyed it with some brown rice, my little boy always love both rice and lentils, so thats great;)

Looks delicious, great work!

Thanks a lot my dear!!;)

Haha, as a student I know the trouble with eating unhealthy snacks reeeally well..
But this looks great, I'll give it a try this weekend! :)

Haha yes not only mommys have this habit;) Let me know how you like it darling!!

Great work.............looks attractive...........Lentil,garlic,tomato and carrot ........what a powerful combination. The nutritional benefit of this dish is super high. due to the fruit and vegetable that made up the food, it is a good source of vitamins,minerals,antioxidant and phytochemicals......you just need to try it out. grae work!!!

Yes so true!! Thanks dear! Glad you appriciate my recipe this way;) I always enjoy reading your comments!

That looks super yummy darling! I love easy to make recipes. And I agree that it's hard to get up early. For me it's even harder when it's cold and grey outside. We have some really cold spring weather now so all I want to do is snuggle up in the sofa and have a cup of hot chocolate :)

Yes to get up early can be challening, but with a great motivation for something, it gets easier;) I am happy that I am changing my routines now, I really feel that I need it!

Yeah I know. It's a lot easier when you know what you want to achieve too. Thinking about your lists :D

That is so true!

That seem very simple to make, I should give it a try! Love the pics and set-up, looks very delicious! It's sometimes hard for me to wake up early in the morning as well but I kinda have to since I have classes pretty early in the morning..

Yes that is a great motivation I guess, at least if you have had enoough sleep;)

This looks delicious!! I'll have to pick up some garlic and give it a try 😁.

I know exactly what you mean about having a hard time getting going when your family is still asleep. I struggle with that too.

Yes, it is so cozy;)
