OMG you guys, I have had an AMAZING day today. It is truly incredible how great you can feel when your body isn’t up and down with caffeine and sugar. I am also amazed at how quickly I am seeing the effects as I assure you, I was well and truly over indulging leading up to this health kick.
Anyway, let’s get onto the food. Not quite as amazing as my day was so I am wondering if I will pay for that with some sluggishness tomorrow. We shall see.
FYI this is the second time I’ve typed this fucker out as WordPress just did something spaced out with the post and I hadn’t saved it since the beginning. FUCK you WordPress raining on my magic day. Arrgghh.
Anyway, shall we continue?
Breakfast: This is not my ideal breakfast AT ALL but we were under the pump this morning and I had no eggs! Eggs are usually my go to quick fix. It was also early and felt too cold to do a smoothie again. I just couldn’t face it. So toast it was. I do use this high quality Ancient Grains bread from the wholefoods grocer and the peanut butter is organic so, you know, it is a good effort at that sort of breakfast.
Lunch: I was hungry by lunchtime but had made it through the morning no probs. The lunch I made was soooooo yummy although I’m kinda over salads in winter but anyhoo, it was good. I had 50g of pan friend chicken breast left over from Monkey’s dinner the previous night so I chucked it in a bowl with baby spinach, rocket (arugula), roma tomato, cucumber, grated carrot, salt, pepper, white wine vinegar and olive oil. It was sensational.
Snack: When I was at the whole foods grocer I couldn’t resist grabbing this Paleo Raw Cacao Snack Bar. They are one of those only nuts, dates, cacao blah blah blah “and nothing else” bars. I really should save myself the moula and make my own but these are a good and healthy substitute. Maybe I’ll make some on the weekend.
Dinner: Dinner tonight was the low point really. I had promised Monkey tacos and he had remembered so tacos it was. I tried to make it as healthy as possible by using pasture fed mince and adding organic grated carrot, grated zucchini and corn to the mince mixture as well as the salad we added on top of that when making the taco. I was going to make my own seasoning but remembered too late and then didn’t have 2 of the spices so I’ll get them at the shops tomorrow and make a batch (it takes 90 secs in the Thermomix – hardly a task) and then I will have it all stored and ready to go next time. No excuses!
Despite the slightly naughty meal I am within my calorie goal as my meals earlier in the day had been a little under their usual allocation.
I have noticed through doing this that my eating is kinda arse about. It would make more sense to fill up early and have more calories at the beginning of the day when you have a chance to burn them. I’m not really sure how to turn it around as I really enjoy my tasty dinners. Breakfast doesn’t seem quite as much fun. Anyway it is something to bear in mind and maybe I’ll try it tomorrow with a slightly high calorie breakfast. See how it goes.
All in all, a pretty fabulous day (except for WordPress/my computer/the browser screwing with me – no it wasn’t my fault, of course not!).
I wonder if I’ll feel a wee bit shit tomorrow because of the higher amount of processed food today? We shall see. Feel good though. Really good. And no coffee! Hurrah!
