Food Diary – Episode Five – Friday
I took on board all the things I’ve learned this week and I had the best day today. I have really curbed my appetite with a little alteration of meals. Yesterday I mentioned having something else for breakfast instead of the Hearty Loaded Oats, so I had a bowl of Alpen muesli. I didn’t have it with milk though because I wanted to be able to eat more of the muesli, so I mixed it with water instead, which actually tasted just as nice.
For lunch I had a mixture of things, a sweet potato, sliced and baked in the oven, 100g cooked chicken, 2 celery sticks, 5 slices of cucumber with salsa dip. It’s a bit of a random mix, but was trying to use things up
I was meeting a friend for coffee at half 7 and was planning on going to a kettlebell class (in the gym this time) with her before hand, so I decided to have my dinner in the afternoon snack “slot” then have a snack after the class. I cheated a bit with the dinner because I used a pre packaged sauce (usually I try to make things fresh). I had a tuna pasta dish. The sauce container said it would serve 2, so I made up 1 tin of tuna and 100g of wholewheat pasta and ate half of the dish. I will have the other half tomorrow for lunch.
My snack at after the class was simply 1 small apple, a protein shake with a little flax oil mixed in.
Later at home I had more celery, cucumber, salsa and 50g chicken.
I feet really good about my snacks today, they were all small and low calorie. Here is the summary below:
|08:00||85g Aplen with water||300|
|12:30||150g sweet potato, 100g chicken, 2 sticks of celery, 5 slices of cucumber and 1 dsp salsa||310|
|15:45||Tuna pasta with sauce||310|
|19:30||1 apple, small protein shake with 5ml oil||280|
|21:45||2 sticks celery, 4 slices cucumber, 50g chicken, and 1 dsp salsa||120|
See you tomorrow.
ps – Meant to be having a Chinese for dinner, so the weeks effort will be lost Will try to cut the portion though.
