Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner
Here’s a sample of a breakfast, lunch and dinner I’ve had this week, along with a delicious green juice. I’m being really good at the moment and filling my meals with wholesome nutritious ingredients as much as possible. Takeaways, sugary or salty snacks and oven pizzas are now saved for ‘Treat Night Friday’ only!
I don’t want to obsess over my weight, but I would like to be back to my pre pregnancy weight so I can fit into the rest of my wardrobe again. Only three pounds to go, so I’m very nearly there! My weight then tends to stay the same which I put down to healthy nutritious eating. I’m a big believer in counting nutrients instead of calories.
Hippocrates quote ‘let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’ is one of my favourites which always sticks in my mind.
Breakfast: A few spoonfuls of oats, almonds, cashews, desiccated coconut and raisins with almond milk. Green Tea (I drink 1-3 per day - it's so cleansing, detoxing, skin clearing and I actually like the taste). A banana.
Lunch: Warburtons Brown Easy Roll Wrap (we’ve just got a bread machine, so hoping to make many more of our own bread items as I’m not happy with all the ingredients in these sorts of things, but these do taste really good and are so versatile) with full fat cheese spread, sundried tomato puree, spinach, red pepper, red onion and grated cheese. Heated up for a few minutes in the oven, then rolled and enjoyed! So tasty – I’ve had three this week!
Dinner: Big chunks of sweet potato, carrot (from our garden), potato (from our garden too, eek!), red onion, red pepper and tomatoes coated in honey, mixed dried herbs and coconut oil. I softened the potato, carrot and broccoli by steaming first. I then roasted for around 30 mins in the oven with a can and a half of chopped tomatoes and a can of chickpeas. This is so delicious! It tastes just as good reheated the next day too in the oven. It’s even better with a few cubes of feta, but I didn’t have any this time.
Juice: I’ve made two delicious batches of green juice this week. I used a whole head of celery, one cucumber, a couple of apples, kiwis and pears, a whole bag of spinach and a few drops of lime and lemon juice. It’s really, really good.
Snacks: Cheese, fresh fruit, carrot sticks and a Nakd bar.
