What did you eat today & Must-reads: October 2012

Question of the month: What did you eat today?

I try to follow a high protein/wholegrain carb diet - but healthy eating requires a lot of planning -and I often get caught in a cycle of exhaustion and unhealthy eating. I've been feeling overwhelmed recently - I'm trying to get back into exercising and eating right so that I have more energy!

TODAY'S BREAKFAST: Egg white omelet (2 eggs) plus grated cheese and turkey bacon. Mug of Green tea. (Ideally I'd have spinach instead of turkey bacon - less processed food!).

LUNCH: This is where it all falls apart...I often end up snacking with the kids when they get home...am going to try limit myself to either freshly made juice, a smoothie or porridge.
EDIT: Have been good so far today - the kids and I are having fresh Carrot, Apple & Ginger juice.
DINNER (FROM LAST NIGHT): This was a healthy night: Grilled salmon with avocado salad. I usually have some wholegrain carbs with my dinner- but this was so filling.

I usually also have 1 or 2 mugs of instant coffee a day. I'm going to try cut it down to one cup - and try to eat 2 small healthy snacks in between meals and see how it goes - wish me luck!


What have you eaten today - please share - I'm so curious!!!

    1. I'm going to try eating more avocado too - it's so good for our skin! The avocado salad is guacamole inspired - I use avocado, tomatoes (I was out of them), red onions, lettuce, lime juice & green tabasco sauce plus sea salt & garlic powder.

    1. LOL - I'm the same - in my mind I eat healthily - but in reality it's only 30% of the time - I need to get back to 100%!

  3. The dinner looks yummy! I need to eat more avocados. Each time I buy them, I wait too long to eat them and end up throwing them away. :/

    1. I know - nothing worse than too squishy avocadoes (although they can be made into guacamole)...I also hate cutting into an avocado and then realizing it's unripe - what a waste!

    1. It definitely made an impression with regards to the frequent snacking - but it is so hard to remember to actually do it! Maybe I should set timers like I did when I was on the GD pregnancy plan LOL!
