I felt ok today but slightly itchy which I think was an allergy to the quinoa I had last night. I need to avoid quinoa but we had run out of rice so I tried it yesterday but that familiar itchy and shivery reeling running down my back has returned, albeit more mildly than before.
A simple breakfast of blackberries with mango. I prefer blackberries in a smoothie but the mango was lovely. I popped out at lunch time and chose to spend half an hour sitting in Timberyard. I fancied some time out. Time just for me. I had a matcha made with soya milk like a latte. I have not had one before; it was slightly bitter but pleasant enough. The best part was sitting in Timberyard, peacefully on my own while I drank it. It was such a lovely sunny day today. I walked up to Food For Thought. I chose a box of mixed salad and all 4 salads were excellent. They were very different, all vegan and all good. The downside to a meal like this though is that it is hard to track what you are eating! A quick and easy supper of blueberry and banana ice-cream. Blackberries and 4 bananas. Such a quick and easy supper.
Annoyingly I then had 50g of white chocolate which was left over from Easter 😦
Today’s numbers are:
Calories consumed = 1,857
% of calories consumed by food group:
Carbohydrates = 67 %
Fat = 24 %
Protein = 9 %
Looking at the averages over the past week the numbers are:
Carbohydrates = 62 %
Fat = 28 %
Protein = 10 %
So the protein is good but the fat too high so next week I need to focus on eating less fat and more carbs.
