I am lucky enough to have a part time job at university, but can sometimes be a bit tricky as the canteen usually does chips and something but today had the nicest salad - chilli chicken with salad, was lovely. Had chicken and bacon with wholewheat pasta and peas (+a tad of cheese + a spoonful of sour cream which is my weakness and forever will be) for dinner. Feel good about my food choices today as i have had food that was tasty and enjoyed but was still relatively healthy. I read somehwere if you can have salad with a meal, always do and prepare the salad before anything else. I tried this with dinner and it worked, I filled half the plate with lettuce and cucumber and then only prepared enough pasta for the other side! Any healthy suggestions for dinners and snacks would be great. I'm thinking hummus and carrots but hummus is high in fat, is it good kind of fat like avocado or just generally bad? Day 1 of back to the gym starts tomorrow, I have been using the couch to 5K app and it was so great for breaking that nervousness of running in the gym, I haven't been to the gym for a while for one thing or another (excuses!) but am back tomorrow and am ready to feel the post gym high.
Recommendations for post gym snacks would be great also as it is right next to tesco express so want to avoid pigging out after the gym, but definitely need something as i always feel i could eat a bus after a good work out.
