Monday Meals | #1 | 26.08.13

 Ok so I'm going to start a new series called Monday Meals, basically 3 pictures of my meals from the day. I would do it for every day but I think we'd both get pretty bored of that pretty quickly! I usually weigh in on a Monday so I'm thinking of changing that to a Wednesday (dat alliteration) or a Sunday, what do you think? Personally I'm leaning towards Wednesday.

Breakfast - New York Bakery wholemeal bagel with a wee bit of Vitalite Dairy Free spread, wafer thin ham and iceberg lettuce.

I use Myfitnesspal to log my food, it's the most accurate way to log my food that I know. However I also use Noom because of it's meal composition feature. It's nowhere near as accurate for food logging but it's nice to see at a glance what your meals looks like, even if it's just a guesstimate. 


Lunch was quite naughtily out of a tin but at least it's now out my cupboard! ;) Ravioli with a Krisproll. The Krisprolls are a new purchase, I was getting quite bored of crispbread so I wanted to try something new. Look out for a post soon about them!

Unfortunately, because lunch was out a tin, it was a very 'yellow' meal but like I say it's now out my cupboard and I can look forward to healthier lunches in the future!


Dinner featured my new favourite food - kale! I only tried it for the first time a couple weeks ago and I was amazed at how much I liked it. I'll probably be writing a post about that soon too. So dinner was kale, scrambled egg and sweet potato slices.

Again, this was a very 'yellow' meal. I'm starting to associate yellow foods with starchy foods and carbs so I need to watch out for that. Despite that, this meal was delicious! I've not bought sweet potatoes in so long so my tummy was very happy to get these! If I was braver with knives I would try to slice them thinner and make sweet potato crisps (or chips).


Despite my very yellow day, I'm quite pleased that there wasn't as much red as there has been recently so that's a positive! Just need to work on adding more green foods into meals!

I hope you will enjoy this series, I think I will!
