I ate very well today. Everything was either fruits or veggies, it was all raw and it all tasted good. I felt really good too. Bright, alert and focused, even though I worked hard all day, had no time to go out at lunch time and worked until 7pm. Over 10 hours today with no real break apart from a little bit of chit chat with the team. And I still feel good hence having the energy to do a little blog. I have forgotten to take my thyroid tablets too since last week so I can’t even thank the meds for my improved sense of well being. It must be down to the food.
So what did Zoe eat today?
Well, thanks to a good nights sleep, I made some sensible choices with my meal planning today and prepared everything I needed to eat all day and took it to work with me. It was quite liberating knowing everything I needed to eat was in my bag and all I had to do was eat it. No decisions to make, no shopping, no temptation by walking through food shops. I must do that regularly.
For breakfast I had about 1/3 of this lovely champagne mango. I would have had more but my little fruit bat was soon circling and begging me for the mango. How that boy of mine does love a mango – he can sniff one out from the other side of the house but how could I refuse him?So I filled my bowl with a medium sized papaya. I ate it all except about 1/8 which I gave Harvey. It was so sweet and juicy. It was quite perfect and I loved every mouthful.
I also made a large salad with a whole and very large sweet pepper, about 10 cherry tomatoes, 2 spring onions and one large carrot. Plus half this head of lettuce. Instead of a dressing I took a small and ripe Haas avocado which I mashed in to the leaves with some salt. It was excellent and kept me going until 9 pm when I was home for supper. It was the avocado that made my fat proportion high today but it was low yesterday and hopefully it will all balance out. This was supper; a purple kale and banana smoothie, blended with a splash of water and some frozen raspberries.The numbers are reasonable too. Not excellent but pretty good.
