I haven't done one of these blog posts in forever!
Lately my breakfast has been the same every morning. I have organic porridge oats with skimmed milk, a medjool date (these taste amazing...like a caramel sweet!) chopped up into it along with some cinnamon. I also have a cup of black coffee (not pictured) and a pint of water before eating anything!
After breakfast I did a 20 minute HIIT workout & drank another 500ml bottle of water. Then I had lunch at noon which was wholegrain pitta bread with avocado, cucumber, feta cheese, peppers, rocket and lemon juice. Even though there are actually two pitta breads in this picture I ended up eating one and leaving some feta (my eyes are ALWAYS bigger than my belly!).
In the afternoon I always go through a bit of a slump which usually means I need coffee! So I had another black one with some fruit salad. (Fruit and coffee actually don't go that nicely together...but I try to keep my snacks healthy during the day!) Today's fruit salad contained blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, mango and a splash of Innocent Mango & Passionfruit Smoothie. After my snack I also downed another 1/2L bottle of water!
I totally forgot to take a picture of dinner until I was about halfway through...oops! Yes, halfway...my pasta portions are always massive! For dinner I had wholewheat casarecce pasta with aubergines, onions & mediterranean veggie sauce. This is one of my favourite meals ever. Pasta & veggies = yum! Along with dinner I had another bottle of water.
That evening while Jonathan & I were watching TV we enjoyed some tea & biscuits. It's become kind of a night time tradition to do this together and I love it because it makes cold evenings seem really cosy! I have peppermint & licorice tea and he has camomile. We both like the Teapigs brand best. My current favourite sweet treat of the moment is chocolate Hobnobs! I know I've mentioned them before but I am obsessed! They're even better dipped into coffee or hot milk ;)
Here's the video on my workout and what I ate...what did you eat today?!
