It’s Monday so it must be fast day :-). I am beginning to look forward to it because I actually enjoy feeling empty, especially after a weekend like I just had which involved lots of eating.
I skipped breakfast quite effortlessly, thanks to several cups of tea. It is definitely harder fasting after you have drunk a little bit too much and eaten rich food. So I used 106 calories on 225 mls semi skimmed milk which I added to tea and a coffee and that got me through the morning.
By early afternoon I was ready for lunch. I wanted to eat a lot of healthy nutrients so I went for some foods full of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants etc. Yes, vegetables plus some fruits.
The basis of my lunch time salad was half an avocado and half a grapefruit. Instead of lemon or lime juice, I used the lovely juicy grapefruit to stop the avocado turning brown.
I have realised I under-estimated my sodium intake as I did not add the slt I sprinkled on my salad or dinner. I don’t add much but I did add some.
I am astonished that such a healthy day of eating put me over my daily recommended sugar allowance!!!!!
I was within my 500 calorie allowance though so I am happy with that. I have just enough milk left for one more cup of Rooibos tea – what a crazy rock and roll lifestyle I lead 🙂
