Just touching base with my weekly weigh in. A weight loss again…. (big cheesy grin)
I’m pretty much sticking with the same breakfast and lunch most days as these work for me and I look forward to them
Breakfast: 1 dry cup (250 ml) of organic oatmeal (porridge) made with water
Lunch: Large raw salad that normally contains lettuce, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, cucumber, spring onion, kidney beans, topped with a large baked potato
In the evening I have more time and opportunity to bake and try and incorporate an authentic recipe and sometimes a dessert too!
My evening meal occasionally includes pastry or if not a pastry, then I’ll have a slice or two of bread with my dinner. If flour rations are getting low then I’ll eat more potatoes. Generally my evening meal will contain about half a plate full of vegetables, a quarter plate of a complex carb (such as potato or wholegrain brown rice) and a small portion of lentils, beans (or meat or cheese before I became vegan)
If I get hungry inbetween and really have to eat something, an apple or a pear or some raw sugar snap peas usually satisfy a craving but sometimes (like today) I had 1/2 cup of oatmeal mid afternoon as my stomach was making some very embarrassing noises in the office. I had taken a brisk 15 minute walk outside during my lunch break, before eating so I guess this may have been the reason..
If nuts and berries are available, I’ll have a small handful of these too.
Being vegan, I now drink almond milk instead of dairy milk and like to add a little cocoa powder and make a warm drink before bedtime some nights. During the day I’ll have a few cups of tea and lots of water.
Eating this way, with almost no processed foods in my life, I feel alive and happy and healthier.
I just cannot imagine how I will feel when I get down to 199lb!
Good luck in your journeys!
