I didn’t bother taking a photo of breakfast as you have seen it before; 30 g oats, 100 ml almond milk, 12 g chia seeds and frozen blueberries which had defrosted by the time I ate them. That came to 6 points (oats = 3, seeds = 2 and milk = 1).
On the way in to work I really fancied a latte. So I had one! Made with soya milk 🙂 2 points.
For lunch I had some leftover chickpea, squash and shallots with tomatoes and cucumber. If you have forgoteen what it looked like from yesterday, it looked like this, but not so pretty as it was in a tuppeware pot that had been travelling from home to the office. It tasted OK cold and added 12 points to the total (1/2 can of chick peas = 4 and 2 tbsp olive oil = 8).
At lunch time I popped out briefly for some air and a walk and picked up an apple which I ate late afternoon.
I was late home tonight and when I got in I was tired and hungry. I really wanted to eat something green as I haven’t eaten enough greenery lately but I was too tired to cook and clean up. So I made a smoothie. This one was all about the nutrients rather then the flavour.
200g tofu (5 points)
I have never had frozen watermelon before. Frozen fruits obviously make the smoothie colder which I like and they seem to make it a bit thicker too.
Plus 200 ml coconut water (1 point) and 28g pumpkinseed butter for some extra protein and healthy fat (5 points).
I wasn’t sure what colour it would be and it came out a pale greeney beige colour. The predominant taste was broccoli which was a little unpleasant but it was acceptable. I just thought about the nutritional value of those goodies in my glass and chugged it down.
So another vegan day is over. I found today really easy because I had been able to plan ahead and take food in with me. That makes a huge difference. I did my walking today too so I am feeling rather pleased with myself. The only thing I can’t do is get to Weight Watchers as I am not getting home in time. Hopefully, when I can get there, I will have lost a good amount. I am certainly feeling a little lighter today 🙂
Keep enjoying that “lighter” feeling Zoe. It will be great to see what your WW weigh-in will be when you do manage to get there.
I got a bit lucky when I stumbled upon the power of Emotional Weight Loss, to be honest. There was some amazing research done by men and women far more brilliant than I, and their work illuminated the path that I now follow, and guide other women just like you to follow as well. I lost weight, but knowing the main reason why I have gained. You can read here – http://weightlosste.blogspot.com/
