Today I am tired and sore but I’ve been doing more than I have in weeks.
Really proud of myself as I have watched people eat cheese, meatball marinara Subway sandwiches and scones with strawberries. Not once have I been tempted to cheat and I’ve stuck to my diet.
Every breakfast I’ve been having my smoothie: blueberries, pea protein, almond butter, oats, banana and coconut milk.
Snack: Almonds or mixed nuts but no peanuts.
Lunch: Veggie Soup with oatcakes and protein (hummus, almond butter, vegan soft cheese) and the dreaded sauerkraut – I do need to make my own as the shop bought one has the emphasis on the sour rather than the kraut.
Snack: A pear or carrot sticks and hummus, and a cup of herbal tea.
Dinner: That has a bit more variety. I even made a rather lovely lasagne with vegan cheese sauce and courgettes instead of pasta. There’s been chilli beans, bean hotpot with rice, last night we were at the beach so I made a hobo dinner (veggies and chickpeas covered in harissa paste). If I’m hungry afterwards I’m having another banana. I must be eating about twenty bananas a week.
Supper: Banana, almond butter on oatcakes and a cammomile tea.
I’ve not been hungry at all because I’m probably eating more than I usually do.
Yesterday I went to the beach and had a proper swim in the sea (which may explain tired and aching). Its the first time I’ve swum in the sea for a very long time and I’d forgotten how good it can feel.
