Why are Mondays always so exhausting? I am always so relieved when they are over! I did better today than I have recently but I need to improve more.
I had a fruity start to the day with a serving of melon, watermelon and mango. I also had an apple and a satsuma. At lunch time I walked along to Wholefoods, Piccadily and I bought a large red chilli. I am not in the mood for salads at all at the moment and as it is cold today, I wanted to cook something spicy for dinner. I helped myself to a takeaway salad box. They had lots of protein options today which I loaded up the salad box with and then topped it with veggies and a really tasty almond and roasted pepper dip. This was all very enjoyable. I also had a large green smoothie to sip during the afternoon. This is so true for me, I really must find a way to get more exercise in but it is quite a challenge as I am so busy from 6 am until 8 pm and then I like to spend time with my children. I am sure there is a solution. This was good. I stir fried lots of vegetables: onion, carrot, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach and leek with Tom Yum paste and coconut cream, served garnished with red chilli, basil and coriander. Really delicious.
So I ate lots of really healthy food, mainly fruits and veggies and lean protein. Unfortunately I also had a Snickers bar in the afternoon and I have just eaten some grapes with some Parmesan cheese. So not ideal but way better then I have been the last couple of weeks.
Zoe do you not find that eating that much fruit to start your day, even though healthy sugar, makes you crave for more sugary foods for the rest of the day?
Hi Laura, when I am in the zone and eating lots of healthy food, I can eat fruit only and feel great on it. But when I am struggling as I am at the moment, yes, I crave sugary foods all day. But I think that is when I am as tired and run down as I am at the moment.
