FOOD & DRINK / WHAT I EAT IN A DAY #1

I’ve gone through the eating everything and anything stage; chips, cake, donuts, burgers, all the other yummy things in the world… but then I’ve also gone through the eating nothing phase where I lived on meal replacement shakes to try and ditch all the excess weight I gained from the prior.

Neither stage were good for my health and my weight yo-yo’d for many years. Recognising that, my diet is now a lot more balanced. Day to day I try and eat relatively healthily incorporating nutritionally rich foods into my diet but then I also don’t punish myself when I fancy that brownie.

As a foodie, I personally love seeing what other people eat and these posts / videos are some of my favourite so I thought you might like to see what I ate yesterday….

BREAKFAST

I generally stick to cereal or porridge during the week so when it gets to the weekend I tend to crave something hot and a bit more exciting. Omelettes are my go-to breakfast choice because they're so quick and easy; yesterday I threw in some chorizo, red pepper, mushrooms, spinach and red chilli. It was reaaallly tasty! I washed it down with a strong cuppa tea (if anyone cares, I use almond milk) and I always 'treat myself' to some apple & mango juice on the weekends. 

LUNCH

I love brown rice but am always on the lookout for other carb or grain alternatives. I discovered these Jamie Oliver grain pouches in my local supermarket a few months ago and tend to stock up whenever they're on offer. There are so many different varieties and the flavour combinations and textures are great. Yesterday I went for the Sweet Chilli Spelt paired with some grilled chicken and steamed kale. 

DINNER

The fridge was looking pretty bare so we decided to eat out for dinner. We took a trip to the nearby Westfield Shepherds Bush and as always, I was overwhelmed with the many, many options. I'm a nightmare when it comes to deciding on where to eat but I wanted to try something new so we eventually decided on Pho and... wow, it was amazing! I went for the Pho Chin which is the traditional recipe with brisket; it was fresh, really flavoursome and tasted really authentic! 

SNACKS 

I've been a massive fan of Ella - from Deliciously Ella - for years and so when I heard she was launching her own energy balls, I couldn't wait to try them. I demolished (very quickly) the Cacao and Almond variation and can't wait to try the other flavours!
