The Weekend

I always struggle over the weekend so I really need to focus on making sure I stay healthy at the weekends. Yesterday was good all day but then a late night bakery and it's jam donuts led me astray.

Started off with oats in a jar - a dark chocolate spread jar!





I cooked 1/4 cup oats with 1/2 cup rice milk and half a banana, stirred in some cinnmon and ground cocoa, berries &flax then served in the jar with left over dark chocolate spread



The chocolate tasted so good when it was all melted and gooey!

For a snack I squeezed the juice from 2 oranges and stuck the remains of some carrots through the juicer - they were a bit old so I didn't get much juice. I started with this



and ended up with this



Love the colour!

Normally you would get a lot more juice from the carrots so I definitely needed to top up with some of this



For lunch I took advice from Tamzin and blended some beetroot with chocolate (orange) protein powder and also some rice milk and topped with pumpkin seeds





I also took inspiration from Tamzin and got myself a nice smoothie glass - I always feel more encouraged to eat healthy when I can make it pretty or fun! Plus it was in the sale section in TK Maxx and the only one they have! I feel a bit like a smoothie stalker now!

For dinner I had Pad Thai again, prawns needed using up.





I swapped some of the pictures in the recipe post as I thought last nights looked better.

I also spirlized some carrots for healthy curly fries but I didn't cook them long enough and ended up to full to eat them anyway, probably because I had a small slice of my boyfriends pizza!

They looked good though:



We went to the cinema after dinner and I had a diet energy drink and diet cherry coke - I needed the energy drink because I was starting to feel pretty tired thanks to having been woken up by the cat chewing my face at 7am (on a Saturday, not fair!) and the diet coke was just because I really fancied it!

I came in t 1528 calories for the day, aim was for 1400 - including the donut at around 300 calories! I could have had a whole other smoothie or bowl of porridge for less than that!

Looking back at the pictures I had a very orange day yesterday! :D

  2. I saw those glasses in TKmaxx a while ago and was tempted. Wish I'd just bought some now! I ordered some things from their online store last week though, it has a really good sale section!

    It takes a bit of getting used to, but I'm on my 4th smoothie with it now and really enjoying it! Thank you for the tip!
    I thought the glass looked like it was the same as one of yours! I love it!
