It's the Weekend! :-)

It's the Weekend!  :-)

Hi everyone,

Friday evening, and I'm already excited that the weekend is here. I've put my daily Menu for today - and the total calories of the whole day comes to 2,000. I am happy with that, as I am 6 feet 1 inch tall and I am fairly active, exercise wise.

My breakfast is Porridge (30g), with mixed nuts, seeds, and fruit and 150ml semi-skimmed milk (I've used a previous photo of that, as it is typically the same).

My lunch is some homemade Roasted Tomato soup with some sourdough bread (1 roll) and half a wholegrain brown roll with peanut butter on each. The dessert was a quarter of grapefruit with yoghurt and pumpkin and chia seeds.

My dinner was some Chicken, a Corn on the cob, some broccoli, string green beans, and new potatoes. Then for my 'naughty but nice dessert' I had a strawberry tart with 37g vanilla ice-cream and some flaked almonds.

Then finally a cup of coffee with 25g dark chocolate with hazelnuts (not pictured).

Total calories for the day = 2,000.

I am 6 feet 1 inch tall, relatively active, and I have a healthy BMI.

If you want to share what you've had for your evening meal, or any other meals today - please do - it's interesting to compare meal ideas.

Love your menu Zest. I had leftover butternut & quinoa hotpot which I made earlier in the week. Have just been preparing my breakfast for tomorrow - chia seeds in soya milk.

I'm a foot shorter than you, much less calories to consume (nearly half 😯).

Hi Zest, your meals for the day looks amazing! I would have taken a picture of my dinner but I was already half way through it when I read your post! 😊

For dinner I’m having a 80gram beef steak, roasted broccoli with a hint of garlic with a side of green salad.
