Today is our food shopping day! We used to do online shops each week but since eating healthy, we prefer actually going into a supermarket and picking out the things we want rather than just having them delivered to us. Is there anything on your shopping list that is a must have each time you go? For us, it’s of course bottled water! We have a fridge freezer dedicated to just bottled water in our house 🤦🏻♀️ how kardashians does that sound? It’s true though! We are obsessed with sugar free strawberry flavoured water and stock up on it each week! I also like to stock up on salty popcorn (sweet for Tazmyn) as I find popcorn the perfect little snack if I’m ever craving something salty. I go for the individual packets rather than a big bag of popcorn, that way you know exactly how many calories you’re having. We always buy fresh fruit, rice cakes (healthier alternative to biscuits!) and cereal bars, as they too are great little snacks if you ever need something sweet! We always make sure we have lots of porridge in our cupboards and coconut milk in the fridge! Coconut milk can be pricy, my favourite brand is definitely the “Koko” brand which is usually £1.50 per carton, but often there will be a deal where you can get 2 for £2! The reason I love this brand more so than Alpro, is because it’s a lot thicker and creamier and when making porridge, I love thick creamy porridge so it works a lot better where as Alpro is quite watery. All personal preference of course! 💗
Tuesday’s food diary:
Breakfast – 200 calories 1.5 litres of water 💦💕
Lunch – 204 Calories ✨ my darling wife even left a little note for me on my shake! She really is the best. 1 litre of water
Afternoon snack: little bag of salty popcorn – 42 calories
Dinner – Tonight I made red lentil pasta, with seasoned chicken breasts, peas & reduced fat red pesto! Tazmyn absolutely loves when I cook this, and I’m definitely a fan of the red pesto more so than green! For this entire bowl of yummy pasta was just 373 calories 🌸😘Pudding – Fresh strawberries & jelly – 3 Calories.
1 litre of water 💜
Evening snack: I’m really trying to get myself into the habit of NOT having any snacks throughout the day at all, if you watch my 600lb life, you’ll remember Dr Nowzaradan tells all his patients to stick to 3 meals a day, no snacking in between as it leads to binging, which I can so relate to! But we used to have tea & hobnob biscuits in bed pretty much every evening, so we’re making positive changes & eventually, I’ll have a day with NO snacks!
Tonight, we’re trying out these cute little bars from Tesco at 99 Calories each. Perfect with a cup of tea! ☕️🧡
Do you snack? What’s your go to on an evening?
