I have felt hungry and tired all day today. Really hungry but I stuck to my diet and now feel much better. I took breakfast and lunch in to work this morning.
Breakfast was overnight oats made with almond milk, chia seeds and a lovely blood orange. I was meant to add 10 nuts but I forgot to put them in, even though I added in the calories to my tracker so I am enjoying them now :-). 363 calories (imagine the nuts). Lunch was a large salad made with rocket, lamb’s lettuce, celery, tomato, carrot and 150 g tuna. 348 calories.
By the time I got home, after a very busy day, I felt exhausted. I craved something warm and comforting. This is exactly the type of moment when I have failed on previous diets and gone crazy with tea and toast or hunks of cheese or chocolate! I managed to hold firm and decided instead that brown rice would do the trick. Yes, I really did.
I made this comforting bowl of yumminess and Harvey and I loved it. Brown Basmati rice, yellow pepper, carrot and red onions, stir fried in coconut oil served with spinach falafel, Tahini, coriander and chilli flakes for a bit of heat. This hit the spot perfectly and I feel restored, warm and sated.486 calories.
1,197 calories for the day today. Almost perfect. I was in an all day workshop so no time to do a walk so nil point for exercise but 10/10 for healthy food.
Great job Zoe. I saw this from Angela on Pinterest and immediately thought of you when you work from home. http://ohsheglows.com/2014/01/22/a-feel-good-lunch-bowl/
I saw that. I tend to look at all Angela’s posts. I am currently tempted to buy her book 🙂
