FOOD DIARY #1 – 10/06/13

Super excited to do my very first daily food diary! If you haven’t already, check out this post all about why I decided to document my food.

Meal 1

I started my morning with a cup of tea and coconut milk (can’t live without tea!) and then had some Lizi’s Granola. I love this Granola because it’s full of nuts and seeds and has a low glycemic load. I had the treacle pecan kind with some forest fruits and greek yoghurt.


Meal 2

For meal two, my mid morning snack, I had two small apples, sliced, with a coffee that was sweetened with a little bit of honey. I also had some pimiento stuffed olives!


Meal 3

For meal three I had some of my all time favourite soup, courgette. You can find the recipe for that here. I always feel like I should be more adventurous with soup but I adore this so I have a batch in the fridge most weeks. To go with this I had a wholegrain rye cracker with hummus and some grilled cherry tomatoes with balsamic vinegar.


Meal 4

Meal four should have been a snack but this afternoon didn’t work out quite as I intended (more on that later) so I was really hungry by this point! I had two plain veggie burgers, 1/4 cup of quinoa with a dash of garlic and soy sauce, 1/3 of an avocado, a grilled red pepper and a salad made up of baby leaves and spinach. I added balsamic vinegar and hot sauce because I pretty much add them to everything!


Meal 5

For meal five I had ‘dessert’ which was frozen blended bananas. My favourite thing when I crave ice cream!


Exercise-wise I planned to join the gym this afternoon and do a session. Unfortunately when I got there it was not only £100 more to join than I was quoted over the phone but I was doing a joint membership with Matt and he couldn’t get there in time, so I had to grab the info and go to the supermarket to get some fresh food for dinner. I was a little bummed out because I’d planned on exercising there, but what can you do?

Food-wise I feel like this was hugely helpful! It encouraged me to eat way more than I normally do (but more of the right stuff) and I ate more frequently and kept my blood sugar stable rather than crashing and feeling hungry!
