Another vegan day nearly done. This is getting easier.
First thing I had a mug of tea with lemon juice, cayenne, Goji berries (1 point) and maple syrup (1 point).
I have 2 new pots of Chia seeds. I order them over the internet and was rather surprised by how large the jar was when it arrived. Not a problem as I will get through them.
I have a jar of black seeds, which is what I have had before. I also bought a jar of white chia seeds which I have not tried before. In my smoothie I made for breakfast I had 10 g of each type ( 3 points).
This was really tasty. I had a huge bowlful but it was nearly all vegetables so it was really healthy. Quite high in points though.
Supper was super quick and easy. I chopped up 3 courgettes, one red and one yellow pepper, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned it. I baked it in the oven on a roasting tray for 20 minutes and then added cherry tomatoes and left over roasted squash and shallots with merguez chickpeas and roasted it for another 20 minutes.It turned out very well. This meal was:
1 tbsp olive oil used to roast the veg = 4
1 tbsp olive oil on the chickpeas = 4
1/2 can of chickpeas = 4
I have eaten really healthy food all day. Apart from 2 apples and some herbal teas, that is all I have had. It doesn’t seem like I over ate but I am over my daily points allowance which is 34.
Tea with berries = 2
Breakfast = 10
Lunch = 15
Dinner = 12
Total = 39.
It is proving challenging to eat enough so I feel satisfied but am not over my allowance. I am not missing eating meat, fish or dairy as meals but I do miss how you can eat a little amount and feel full and satisfied for a long time afterwards. I have been really hungry today and am feeling a bit disappointed by how many points I have had. Still, I ate vegan and I ate healthily.
