Tuesday Eats #2, 2014

Welcome to the second ‘Tuesday Eats’ of 2014. This week has been a positive one but it’s also reminded me how tricky it can be to stay on track when outside of a controlled environment.

I’m still focusing on building good habits in January. The introduction of online grocery shopping and meal planning are helping with this, but they are both something I am new to.

So here goes, a look back and honest account of everything I ate yesterday …

I started the day with a 40g of Muesli with Skimmed Milk and a Multi vitamin! You’ll notice from the picture the Muesli is in a ziploc bag. This is part of my planning, preparation and portion control and forms one of this months goals.

Mid morning I had 3 oat cakes, Guacamole and a small handful of carrot sticks.

Lunch was scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, an apple and a peanut cereal bar (not pictured).

I had a two hour wait in the afternoon while my car was being serviced. With no where in walking distance other than a Garden Centre I pitched up in their cafe and made a Latte and a Flapjack last 1.5 hours!

Dinner was a griddled tuna steak, 35g brown rice with some roasted cherry tomatoes.

I obviously hadn’t had enough of the right things to eat as I felt hungry after my dinner and had cereal bar #2, which wasn’t part of the plan. Lesson learned.

My grocery delivery is due this evening so I’ll have a full fridge and larder to make the right choices from. Today will be about using up the left overs!

  1. Meal planning feels weird if you haven’t done it before but now I do it all the time, I find that I spend less money on food but always seem to have loads of food in the fridge, I think it’s because I’ve concentrated hard on making sure that nothing goes in the bin! One thing I would say about that day is that it was light on fruit and veg, that might be why you were hungry at the end of the day. I did that over Christmas, I seemed to be hungry all the time but when I thought about it, it was because I was hungry for green things and green jellybabies didn’t qualify!

      • Everything I do it practice because I’ll never get it right!
        I thought that maybe the grocery ordering had gone a bit wonky and you’d run out, which can happen in the first couple of weeks of meal planning..not that I’ve ever done that at all!
