So I have decided to start documenting my food intake and taking pictures of my food for a new segment that I am adding to my blog called *in deep echoing voice* MY FOOD DIARY!
People ask me what I eat to lose weight, so I am going to be uploading daily food posts showing you guys what I like to eat daily to trim down and as healthy options!
For breakfast, I usually have fruit, so I decided to have half a grapefruit and a tiny cup of black coffee (It's tiny, about the size of an espresso coffee). If you find grapefruit a bit too bitter, but know about all the health benefits, try sprinkling a tiny amount of sugar on it and putting it under the grill for 2-5 minutes and it may change your life! (Got that tip from Jon, his grandma used to do make it like that for him)
For lunch, I had a very light chicken salad with spinach, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and red onion. It was a fairly small bowl of salad and I thought it wouldn't fill me up, but because I had bulked it out with spinach and lettuce, I actually couldn't finish it. (You get full very quickly once you cut down your intake, and I make sure I don't overeat because when I do, I get sleepy and unproductive AKA "The 'itis") The dressing is a french vinaigrette dressing that Jon makes, I may get him to write up the recipe for that if anyone is interested! This was a very tasty salad, the vinaigrette made this a 10/10 because we all know how bland salad can be without a good dressing, so the kick from the vinegar and the chopped garlic added some real good flavour!
So yeah! That's the food that I ate. I did have snacks during the day, but they were just fruit and I drank water throughout the day (which I kinda hated because I am a fan of fruit juices but not a fan of what they do, especially if they're not pure fruit juices).
Like I said, if anyone is interested in wanting to know recipes, just let me know and I will either incorporate them into these daily food posts, or get Jon write them up on his blog which he is starting fairly soon!
Thanks for reading guys, I hope you enjoyed this post!
Until next time,
