I've decided to do a post on what I ate today (as the title indicates haha). I really notice a difference in how I feel and how bloated I get when I don't eat as healthy as I should so really try to make an effort to eat as healthily as I can. However, my diet could definitely be improved but life is waaay to short to be calorie counting and stressing over food! These meals are typical of what I eat most of the time.
Breakfast: An apple, a banana and a cup of green tea
I don't have a very active lifestyle at the moment (as I've said before I've just finished my 2nd year of uni and am not working at the moment) so I don't need a big breakfast. As you can see from the photo above, I like my bananas very ripe! And my favourite apples are the Pink Lady variety.
As for the green tea, I swear by this stuff! The Twinings Orange & Lotus Flower Green Tea is my favourite! Green tea is great for overall health - boosts your metabolism, full of antioxidants (which can make you look younger!!) and is packed with vitamins (A, C and E). This variety is doubly beneficial because lotus flower is said to be good for relaxation and relieving stress, is rich is vitamins B and C and can reduce the risk of heart attacks! I drink 3 cups of green tea a day, one with every meal. I can't get enough of the stuff!
Lunch: Tuna, Spinach and Rocket Salad
I love tuna! I would probably have it for every meal if I could haha. This salad contains spinach, rocket, tomatoes, celery and tuna that I mixed with about half a tablespoon of low fat mayonnaise. It was really yummy and spinach is soo good for your hair and skin!
Dinner: Chicken, Asparagus, Petis Pois and Cream Cheese Pasta
Yummy yummy yummy! This was my least healthy meal today because of the cream cheese and the white pasta. Usually I eat wholemeal pasta but I don't think that tastes as good with cream cheese and white pasta does so I was a bit naughty!
Here are some photos of the cooking process:
I then drained the pasta and petis pois and added them to the saucepan of chicken and asparagus. I then turned the heat down to low and added a generous tablespoon of Light Garlic & Herb Philadelphia! Easy peasy!
Thanks so much for reading! What did you eat today? xx
