Hi Everyone, hope your day has been good!
Breakfast this morning was really wonderful. I had two small slices of the German Fruited Rye bread I brought home from Majorca with cashew butter and sliced banana. I also had a bowl of fresh fruit – the rest of the banana, blackberries and blueberries.
Just so delicious!
Mid morning I snacked on some cottage cheese with pecans and a little agave syrup.
Lunch was a bowl of Pea, Broccoli and Mint Soup followed by some strawberries.
I also snacked on 2 fun sized apples during the day at work, I was just so snacky! Before I left to go to the gym I ate a little bag of Lemon Nakd Raisins for workout fuel.
I did a 5 minute warm up followed by 30 minutes of intervals on the step machine, cross trainer and treadmill. I would have usually gone on the bike rather than the treadmill but they were all busy so I took it as a sign to start running at the gym again! I also did 2 sets of my usual abs exercises before popping home and doing my 20 minute Yoga for Runners session.
For dinner I chopped a turkey breast into strips and covered with hot chilli powder then fried off in a little oil and served with a big salad of cos lettuce, spinach, red pepper, green pepper, red onion, cucumber and carrot. I also added a little bit of spicy peri peri salad dressing too.
For desert I quite fancied a protein mocha shake so I combined a scoop of chocolate whey with some soy milk, teaspoon of decaf coffee and a couple of ice cubes.
This has managed to satisfy my hunger so far this evening!
The last couple of days I’ve felt particularly snacky. I tend to have at least one planned snack, but sometimes I just feel so hungry I start to snack on other things. Luckily its nearly always something healthy like nuts, dates, raisins etc. Recently I have tried to make apples my go to snack as I heard Tosca Reno saying that these are good to snack on as they are low calorie and contain pectin, a type of fibre that should help to keep you full. I used to feel really guilty for snacking, but as long as my snacking isn’t down to boredom or stress, and as long as I’m snacking on healthy food I don’t beat myself up. What’s your view on snacking? How many snacks do you eat each day? Do you plan your snacks? Do you have a ‘go to’ snack?
I’m going to finish watching Celebrity Master Chef and then I need to try and make myself a home made head band to wear for the wedding I’m going to on Friday. I’ll post some pics of it tomorrow! Bye for now x
