Turkey & Mushroom Mince Burger

For change, here is a burger with a difference… 500gr of turkey mince and 300gr or mushrooms finely chopped up with an onion and the whole clove of garlic and spices (salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, turmeric, steak spice). 10 burgers per mix with 32 grams of protein and 200 calories per 2 burgers. Kids adore them as they are soft, juicy and absolutely delicious! Add vegetables/ salad and enjoy this meal under 350 calories and enough protein and fibre for sustained energy, no fat storing!

Formula 1 Healthy Breakfast with a creative difference

When people ask me how can I have the same breakfast every single i.e. our Formula 1 shake, I look at them not sure what they mean. obviously, I keep forgetting that people who ask don’t probably know much about Formula 1 (otherwise they would not be asking this question). Of course, I will put aside the fact that their own breakfasts of toasts and cereals is probably what THEY have every day, but, no, I will not go there! (Unless they want me to! LOL)

So, this post is a collection of creations of my breakfasts that all include Formula 1 Healthy Meal just to showcase rather interesting notion that, apart from doing the right thing for the body and giving it all the nutrients it needs every single day, this thing is not just delicious (delicious enough for my boys to love it from since they were tiny for their breakfast, snack and drink before bed time), but they are so versatile – I can go though several months without having the same shake… well, below are whole month worth of them…

Egg and Vegetable Salad

If someone told you “egg and vegetable salad” I don’t think you would be able to picture that it can actually taste as well as look good. This is one of the salads I made over the summer and, as I love all the vegetables on there (sprinkled a bit with some salt and pepper and a little helping of olive oil) and included one whole egg and two egg whites (so that I get decent amount of protein that main meal should have) – it was absolutely delicious, it has an insane amount of fibre combined with decent amount of protein, which makes it a simple, delicious and yet clean and balanced meal that will stabilise your blood sugars, keep you fuller for longer and really make you feel good about the choices you are making.

Bon Apetit!


Quorn Egg Omelette

I have really enjoyed this lunch today. When I need something quick and delicious for lunch or dinner, if I am not planning to having a shake, I straight away turn to eggs and I love them in all kinds of ways. I have never used quorn until recently trying some sausages. I was dissapointed with how little protein they had compared to some other vegetarian options, however, I could see that Quorn mince has got quite a decent amount so decided to give mince quorn a try, in my seemingly never ending efforts to find more vegetarian options in my diet.

Jenni’s Story: Feeling better in my 50s than I did in my 30s

jenni1Jenni has been my client for 6 months now and it was one of those moments when she first came to CobraFIT initially that I felt instant connection that I usually feel with people who are just open, kind individuals. You just have to love Jenni. Whenever there is a new participant at CobraFIT, I know Jenni will immediately try to give them some tips and advice, be kind, tell them how good the plan is working for her and make them at ease. I am so grateful to have Jenni as part of our community, such an invaluable member and now very dear friend too. Here is Jenni’s story to date…

“I met Sanela as I had signed up for her Cobrafit workout.  My journey back to health, up to that point, had been slow to get off the ground and I was looking for a weight training style of workout to compliment my other excercise.

My mother, my inspiration

My parents have been my inspiration throughout my life, each of them for different reasons…

My father died when I was 19 from lung cancer and I grew up feeling that he was destroying his life with smoking and an unhealthy life in general. My mother, on the other hand, whilst having gone through breast cancer treatment herself, has always been very aware of the power of nutrition, has always taken care of her health… She made nutritious concoctions using plants and herbs, sought after ancient health recipes, even drank raw quail eggs daily to recover after her breast cancer treatment (I only discovered as an adult that they are full of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fats), amongst other things. I am talking Bosnia & Herzegovina, in 1970s… Not modern Britain… 🙂

Sebila’s inspiring story: Going all the way…

I have a confession to make. I LOVE getting feedback from my clients. I do what I do because I love it. I would do it even if I did not get paid for it (I know, seriously, but luckily does not need to be that way)  – help people improve their health… like a chat I had with my neighbour yesterday who was gardening and complaining of a bad back as I passed by and immediately started talking about the weather (we are in England, afterall), so I taught him how to “hold his core”, expression he did not even know what it meant up until then, which made us both chuckle. Or protein bar I gave to a concierge of one of Bath’s hotels that I happened to be chatting to, so he got the protein bar for his snack. They say that people will remember you not for what you said, but for how you made them feel. I really get that. So, I love the feedback as I always wonder, despite great results my clients get, what difference does it really make in their life.
