What I Eat In A Day #4

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

Good morning, everyone! 

It's a chilly Tuesday morning here and I got up at 6am for a CrossFit session. We did back squats for nearly an hour (10 reps, 5, 3, 1, 1, 1, 3, 5, 10) and I worked mainly on my form because my recent knee injury has prevented me from doing it properly. It's going to take some practice, but I'm happy to be taking a step in the right direction now.

I've had a nice hot shower, and now I am very ready for some food.

I've been trying to have bigger meals at the start of my day lately, mainly because my work schedule means that I don't get to eat anything again until after 12.30. Which also means I've cut carbs (except my oats. You can't take those from me) and focused on getting a tonne of protein from eggs and other options to keep me full for hours. So far it has worked and it's always good to train my body to do something different.

This morning I am combining two smaller meals for my breakfast. The first one is some muesli (the low-sugar kind) with half a cup of natural Greek yogurt, blueberries, and a little maple syrup. I can't go without my fruit in the morning and this is super-quick to put together.

My second option is vegetarian sausages with fried eggs and I'm also going to add a little barbecue sauce. Simple and tastes great, plus I can make my coffee and muesli while it all cooks. 

I didn't need lunch when I got home from work, so obviously I ate right this morning! 
I've made myself a "deconstructed sushi bowl" with 1/2 cup brown rice, 95g of tuna, celery, green pepper and sesame seeds. I topped it with some dark soy sauce and sweet chili. Yum! I've been having this for my lunch through the last month and I love it.

I've just been on the treadmill in our garage doing a little bit of running. It's hard finding time to get out with my new work schedule, so I gotta fit in some jogging where I can. And now I'm super hungry! I also craving something healthy, so I've made a messy little smoothie bowl.

I added an apple, 1/2 a banana, frozen raspberries and some turmeric/carrot juice I had that's packed with ginger. It blended up nicely, so I topped it with the other half of a banana, fejoa, paleo muesli mix, flax seeds and chia seeds. So much goodness! Plus I love the color.

Dinner tonight is zucchini and haloumi fritters with salmon. We also added a sour cream mix that had a little too much cayenne pepper in it for some heat. I would have added some greens but we don't have any left at the moment. This was delicious! We added buckwheat flour, which has a really nice nutty taste to it.

That was a pretty good day of eating! I've gotten a little off track lately, but I'm feeling good about getting back to being on a healthy plan. I've already got some recipes I'm looking forward to trying!

What's your favorite food been lately?

  1. Yum! You are making me so hungry! That deconstructed sushi bowl is SUCH an amazing idea! I'm sure I would fail miserably if I tried to actually make sushi, so that is such a wonderful alternative!

    I'm trying to get my health back in order so I'll be taking some of these ideas for sure! These past couple months have been so busy so I haven't been making it a priority and I feel terrible! I always love seeing these posts from you so I look forward to more! x

    1. Haha sorry about making you hungry! I've had my fair share of fails at sushi, so this bowl is fail proof :)
      Aw yay I'm glad you've been enjoying these posts! Getting some good eating habits back into your routine will be awesome, you'll feel better in no time.

  2. That smoothie bowl looks amazing! You eat so healthily, it really has inspired me to start doing the same. I'm currently making smoothies and eating oatmeal for breakfast- now I just have to work on healthier dinners!

    Sending light & love your way,
