I have done quite well today with my eating which is good considering I have not been at home. It is so much harder to eat healthily when you are not at home. Well, I think it is.
I had a reasonable nights sleep in my hotel room last night and set off for the office bright and early.
There is a very grand eatery near the office and I had a skinny latte, an apple and yogurt with berries and granola. I am trying to eat more raw food than I have recently. Eating a high proportion of raw food definitely makes me feel more energetic and alert so I set off with the intention of finding a completely raw lunch. I nearly managed it but the healthiest protein option were some cooked beans. I would have been far too hungry if I had only had salad. I also had a fruit salad. Plus I had 2 cups of tea during the day and lots of water.At the end of a very pleasant day working with my team I left the office and headed for the splendid Glasgow Central station which is in this amazing building.Inside it is huge and also very light thanks to the glass ceiling.
Everything inside the station is designed to be in keeping with the older parts of the building. While I waited for my train I looked at the destinations on the train boards. I do not think I have been to any of these places and certainly couldn’t place them on a map – although I would assume they are in Scotland. This is my train. I am off to Birmingham which is where I am as I write this post 🙂
The book I am reading, ‘Raw Living’, recommends eating nuts and seeds as they are an excellent source of protein, fibre and healthy fats when they are raw. The fats are not so healthy when the nuts are roasted and they are not a healthy snack when they are covered in salt. So I picked up this bag of nuts and seeds and a packet of apples which I thought would do for supper. Unfortunately the nuts and seeds are roasted so they tasted lovely but they were not raw. I then got to the bit in the book that said do not eat more nuts or seeds than you could hold in one hand in a day. Oops!
So, a reasonable day of eating. I can retire for the night knowing I did ok.
