This morning the Kenzai App on my iPhone crashed each time when it started to countdown the rest time between sets. Did not have the issue on the iPad. I really love the app for the workouts so I hope it is fixed soon. Yesterday I downloaded an Apple update on my phone so I guess that is the reason.

Seen several questions about how to manage the diet in the blogs. Perhaps we can share a meal/recipe every day? I will make a start.
Thanks to Kenzai I am weighing my food now for almost a year and am quite used to that. I decide every evening what I will eat the next day and make my shopping list for the things I need. I am lucky by having a good supermarket in the basement of my apartment building and do my shopping at the end of the 5km walk before breakfast. I often cook for 2 or 3 meals that I eat during the week but getting better in preparing just one meal (for 1 person) at the time which I prefer.

For yesterday's lunch I baked sweet potato fries cut in smaller peaces in the oven for 12 minuter with some pepper and few drops of olive oil. I steam cooked broccoli for 6 minutes mixed it with cherry tomatoes, pepper and a few drops of olive oil, added it with the salmon to the potatoes in the oven and cooked all together for another 12 minutes.
At the same time cooked some pasta.

Finally I weighted 150 grams salmon and placed in the middle of a small oven dish, mixed 230 grams of veggies and potatoes with 100 grams of pasta and added it to the salmon.
If necessary reheat. Enjoy!

menno, that looks great! i also had salmon last nite: i made a marinade of grey poupon mustard, fresh squeezed lemon and mashed garlic; brushed over the salmon thickly; wrapped in foil; put on grill for about 25 minutes. i buy the salmon at a wonderful fish market...be sure to find out where it is caught or farmed. Sauteed veggies on rice, using same marinade, makes this a great meal.....to get in all the veggies, i had an ear of our yummy local corn (cut off cob before weighing).

      You've got it Menno-- lots of apps are struggling with the latest iOS update ours included. It'll take a few days to fix but our development team is working on it. Sorry for the inconvenience!

      I absolutely LOVE your idea to share a meal a day. I'll do it too! Your meal looks great, you're a Kenzai pro for sure.

        Your dish looks delicious! A supermarket in your building, oh my, I am almost 1/2 hour drive away.

          That's why I love to live in the city Barbara, all conveniences at walking distance.

            Menno, thanks for some ideas. I am from the deep south in the US and I grew up on sweet potatoes. I still use lots at home, but have not prepared while traveling. Just added to my food shopping!

            Also using past

              Also using pasta as my carb, have not done. Will give that a try, after weighed out probably do not get much, especially at dinner.

              Latter will try to give all some of my receipes.
