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
