It's HOT here! But that's not going to keep us from our walks! Sweating like a but I always feel so much better mentally and physically when I've been active. Thankful for these sunny days and QT with my little bambino!
Today's cubicle lunch is courtesy of a midday #targetrun ! Guess I was in the mood for crunchy food? Back in the artificial light of my cubicle, I'm questioning my choices. I did save calories by spilling half of the salad on the floor when the lid fell off mid-shake. #saladfail #shouldhavestoppedattacobell
From borscht in Ukraine, street tacos in Guatemala, pupusas in Honduras, to authentic gyros in Greece I think I've eaten pretty good over the last few years. Every place I go, I link those places to the foods I ate while there. Like South Africa was the where I have jumbo prawns and antelope jerky for the first time, Ukraine is where I had the best burger in my life and in Jamaica I finally tasted Blue Mountain coffee the proper way (with cane sugar and condensed milk), so if you travel for nothing else do it to experience the food. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #tbt#fatkid#throwback#goodtimes#vscotravel#vscofood#whatiate#myplate#ilovefood#traveldiaries#foodie#fooddiary#blackgirlstravel#melanintravels
So thank you to @thescottishfoodie who inspired my trip down memory lane with her amazing Insta post and story about her upcoming trip to the concrete jungle NYC - well jell! This is @katzsdeli right behind me you can see where meg Ryan did her infamous scene in when harry met sally - this philly cheese was the numberrrrrr for me bliss!!! Ps excuse my bra photobomb. It’s a regular thing for me - elegance ain’t my middle name
Joe Wicks inspired spinach fritter with chicken for lunch (360 calories). Fake away Katsu Curry inspired evening meal (482 calories). Dessert to finish eating at 8pm was a banana split type of thing with halo top, fibre one lemon bar, choc shot and cashews. Also known as the most delicious 285 calories ever eaten!! If you’re trying to add up those calories bear in mind I’ve also had a protein shake, 2 clems and 2 babybels . Just a quick gym session this morning as always, did some cardio, triceps and abs. Not that I ever get rid of the fat elbows (felbows) mind. Or fat belly come to think of it . I’m only kidding, I’m actually feeling LOADS more positive about it all again since I started this intermittent fasting experiment! Now, there’s a few things at play here so I’m not saying it’s all down to that. I’ll give you a proper round up at the end of week 1! But I’m just feeling back in control of things and hitting my calories/macros/steps with renewed enthusiasm! And I’m also a lot less hungry!! ♀️. #fooddiary#macros#teamrh#caloriecounting#ifitfitsyourmacros#myfitnesspal#whatiate#healthymeals#intermittentfasting#mfp#foodgloriousfood#nutrition#fatloss#fattofit
Keto? Serious? Yes! I want to emphasize that keto isn’t all meat and eggs and cheese! I see so many recipes with little else! We can get fats from many different sources and, yes, you can still eat fruit and vegetables!!
Everyone’s diet looks different.
I don’t eat this everyday but sometimes I really don’t want eggs. @so_delicious makes a fantastic coconut yogurt with a lower carb count than regular yogurt.
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup berries
1/4 cup walnuts
2-3 T hemp seeds
Cinnamon and a sprinkle of @truvia
This was awesome! #dairyfreeketo#breakfastbowl#summerberries
So good needed the protein after the gym, right?!
Large prawn salad with Mediterranean Quinoa for dinner
So easy to make, no need to cook the prawns just defrost them.
For the salad:
A little chopped iceberg lettuce, avocado, sun dried tomatoes and a little oil on top.
For the Mediterranean Quinoa.
I brought it from Aldi shoved it in the micro for 2mins and done
Meals don’t have to be painstakingly long to make. I knocked this beauty up in 10mins
First time I ever spent $7.22 on a latte afternoon pick-me-ups can be so pricey! Definitely regretted it but it was the first time I tried @oatlybarista - so yummy in the @ghowellcoffee vanilla latte!!
Most of you probably already saw this on my story but my new favorite is @oatly oat milk (I found it yesterday at @Target) it tastes so good and is so creamy! I tried it in my oats this morning and they turned out so fluffy and delicious!
Have you tried oat milk?? #themindfulgarden
