Last week I posted a day's food intake, and said I'd be doing the same this week - so here is my intake for today. I have found it a helpful thing to do, from a personal perspective, as it is making me think about my choices.
Here you can see my breakfast:
Quinoa porridge with seeds (chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds); nuts (brazil nuts, almonds, cashew nuts and walnuts); fruit (pineapple, strawberries and blueberries) and semi-skimmed milk (150ml) - there's a dusting of cinnamon on top. (I'd run out of porridge oats - so needed a substitute, and quinoa worked well).
Lunch: Egg mayonnaise with salad and tomato and cucumber in a wrap. Then some Fruit cake (homemade).
Dinner: Chicken breast with mixed vegetables (cauliflower, carrots and brocolli) and new potatoes with a knob of Guernsey butter. Followed by a cup of coffee with skimmed milk and 25g dark chocolate (containing hazelnuts).
I had some cups of tea and coffee (made with skimmed milk) at various points in the day and will have some in the evening too - which I've already listed in my calorie count - and the total calories for today = 2,124 calories.
I am fine with this, as I am trying not to go over 2,200 calories - I am 6 feet 1 inch tall and my BMI is 'healthy'.
My plans for next week:
* I hope to have a day when I eat vegetarian foods all day.
* I hope to make some homemade soup to have for lunch.
* I hope to buy some nice yoghurt and a grapefruit - as I was enjoying having that last week, and forgot to get any this week.
* I hope to find a new Vegetarian recipe to try.
If you would like to pledge to do anything this week - you are welcome to join me, or feel free to make any constructive comments you want to - in response to this post.
Wishing everyone a great week.
