This ended up being a very "Fourth of July" inspired breakfast, ha ha ha! I didn't plan it that way but I kind of like how festive it looks. I had my usual porridge with almond milk, 1/2 a banana, blueberries and strawberries with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. I also had a black coffee & pint of water with lime in it.
After breakfast I went for a 30 minute walk. When I came back I was starving! For lunch I had a Caprese sandwich...I made this using a wholewheat pitta, 1/2 mozzarella ball & about four cherry tomatoes chopped into halves. I added some rocket, a pinch of salt and a dash of extra virgin olive oil. This was SO good, it's the perfect summer sandwich! I had another pint of water & followed it up with a black coffee.
I had a dentist appointment later that afternoon, so before I went out I had a quick snack. I've been trying to vary my snacks lately so today I chose figs chopped up into natural low-fat yoghurt. This actually ended up being very delicious so I will definitely try it again!
For dinner I made salmon, sweet potatoes & green veggies. I baked the salmon in the oven wrapped in tin foil with a little bit of olive oil, salt & black pepper. I baked them along with the sweet potatoes with the skins on. Then I added the veggies which were Bird's Eye SteamFresh (you can cook these in the microwave, super quick & easy!). To drink I had more water!
I'm trying to be good in preparation for our upcoming trip to America (which is really hard...especially when Emilia & Eduardo baked brownies today!!) but this is kind of a good mix of healthy with a hint of indulgence! I basically took a wholemeal baguette, sliced it and added some Boursin Black Pepper cream cheese, then topped it with avocado. The combination of black pepper, avocado & cream cheese is so yummy! Especially since the pepper gives it a flavourful kick. (Boursin are giving away a meal for two at Michelin star London restaurant Le Gavroche - for the chance to win, click here!)
Those were my meals for today! I also drank two litres of water and had a cup of peppermint & licorice tea before bed. And drooled a bit over those brownies. What did you eat today?!
