What's on menu?

Whatís on menu today? You can either eat to live or live to eat. I donít do either. I do appreciate food but not with the detailed fascination of Michelin or the passion of Fat Bastard in Austin Powers movies. Actually in cooking, I am probably top three worst chefs in Nordic countries. Thankfully, in order to have a proper diet optimally round training sessions I have eaten breakfast and lunch with the team last ten years. I have learned nutrition is even more important than actual training. Obviously you need both, though. The older you get the more scientific they wanna take it to make sure no late night Harribos are killing the career. So once again I have measured everything that has gone in to my mouth past few days. What happened to the old fact that carrot a day keeps doctor in Turku/Burnley/Gefle! By the way, they really donít like bringing a scale and weighing your food in proper restaurants so try this at home.
