Today I thought I’d do a ‘What I Eat in a Day’ post.
I love seeing other bloggers post what they eat in a day, and thought you might enjoy seeing what I eat!
Nearly every day Monday to Friday, I have porridge for breakfast.
Most days I’ll have porridge with a flaxseed mix (Linwoods), honey, raisins and banana, although some days I like to mix it up a bit by putting some cocoa powder in there and having some yummy chocolate porridge!
I use Flahavans Organic Irish Porridge Oats, taking 1/4 cup of oats and mixing it with 3/4 cups of liquid – either milk or water, it really depends how I am feeling that day – I then whack it in the microwave for 1 and a half minutes and voila, there’s my porridge done.
This always leaves me feeling super full until lunch time. I also make sure to wash it down with a cup of green tea in my favourite Eeyore cup.
Lunch for me varies, sometimes I’ll have a wrap or a salad, or what I have right here.
This is one of my favourite lunches, toasted pitta bread slices (only until it’s warm, not crispy!), cucumber, pepper and carrot sticks with organic hummus.
This actually leaves me feeling very full and it’s so easy to whip up quickly the evening before.
Again, I make sure to wash it down with a cup of green tea, I normally have about 5 – 6 cups of tea throughout the day.
After lunch I’ll normally have a snack or two, which most days is a banana and an apple, occasionally some nuts which I always have in my bag just in case!
D inner varies a lot for me, I’ve been trying to get more protein in my diet, so have been trying to include some type of meat in my diet – my favourites are a chicken or turkey breast, or beef mince.
Some meals I often choose to make are, chili con carne and rice, pasta with a tomato sauce or pasta bake or a chicken or turkey breast with various vegetables.
Here I had a stir fry which is one of my favourites as it takes next to no time to prepare!
This stir fry was made up of cooked chicken breast, squash, broccoli, spinach, runner beans and egg noodles, with a ‘Chinese Stir Fry Sauce’ by Tesco. I also had a glass of Innocent smoothie to go with it – not the healthiest as it’s full of sugar I know, but I really fancied it.
I then tend to make another green tea after dinner to take to bed with me.
I also drink around 2 liters of water a day – I just love water honestly.
That’s it for today’s post, I hope you enjoyed seeing what I eat in an average day, I’m hoping to do more of these in the future.
