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.
