MEAL CHOICES FOR THE DAY | HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY

I recently embarked on a healthy lifestyle change journey in order to help myself change the way I eat and view food. This is so that I can have the right mind to loose weight.

Today I am sharing the meal choices I made for the day. This could give some ideas on foods that could be eaten in moderation. At the moment, I eat small meals regularly in order to help increase my metabolism.

Breakfast - 09.03
For breakfast, post workout, I had some oats with unsweetened almond milk cooked on the stove. I had this together with a mashed banana, 6 blueberries and honey. I also had a Almond Nespresso latte which I made with the Cosi Nespresso capsule.

AM Snack - 11.45
For my morning snack, I had a smoothie. Strawberries, blueberries, gogi berries, chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk and water. I recently found this to be a great 'pick me up' for me whenever I am low on energy. It's fabulous!

Lunch - 13.15
For lunch I had some omelette made with green organic salad leaves and carrot. I had this with 3 long 23kcal breadsticks. I broke each stick into two hence why there are 6 of them.

I also had this with a bottle of 187kcal fortified non-alcoholic malt drink. These are also great energy boosters for me.

PM Snack - 16.30
For mid-afternoon snack I had a belvita breakfast biscuit. I had another Almond Nespresso latte around 14.45 also.

Dinner - 18.00
For dinner I had some Ghanaian recipe beans and sardine stew with dried cassava powder or 'Gari' as it is called. This was basically protein with a tiny bit of carbohydrate from the cassava powder. The serving was a small cereal bowl size and it looks different when mixed together.

Late Snack - 19.30
My last snacks were another belvita breakfast biscuit, some coffee, and before bed, a cold strawberry juice because I was thirsty. Eventually, I hope to have no late snacks, or have it only once in a while.
