I was working from home today which makes eating what I like and when I like much easier. It does make walking harder though because I am mainly on one room and today I didn’t have time to go out for a walk as we are so busy at work. Anyway, I am trying to eat much smaller meals as well as very healthy meals because our portion sizes are much too large.
I made a smoothie bowl for breakfast, using up the remains of the fruit bowl because I was having a shopping delivery later in the day. For 2 of us I made the smoothie with 2 mangoes, 2 pears, 1 avocado and half a bag of frozen blueberries with a splash of oat milk.Having blitzed the fruit to make the smoothie I added some coconut and pecan nuts to serve. The flavour was overwhelmingly of pear, which was very nice but surprising. The pears were very small but they overtook all the other flavours. It was very enjoyable.Enjoyed with 2 mugs of hot water with lime and ginger.Lunch was leftovers. I was pleased to see a large bowl of the sweet potato, butternut and chard casserole in the fridge; I had forgotten it was there. I cooked some rice and heated up the casserole and it was delicious. This is such a wonderful recipe, we both love it.I always cook 1 cup of Basmati brown rice and we often share it between us but today we only had a quarter each. It was plenty.I added some smoked chili pickle and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful of my lunch.I was peckish in the afternoon (more likely bored actually) so I had some almonds and dates with black rooibos tea.I made stir fried rice for dinner, using another quarter of the rice. I stir fried, in coconut oil, red onions, garlic, celery, fennel, peas, courgette and half an orange pepper. I added liquid aminos and a splash of apple cider vinegar for flavour and served it with fresh basil.I then remembered I had some mixed sprouts in the fridge so I added a handful of those too. Simple and satisfying.
My eating was ok today. More fat than I needed and not enough raw food but I was out of fresh groceries so tomorrow I can eat more raw foods. I have not done enough exercise so I must do better with that tomorrow. I did well with portions today though.
