I love doing these full day of eating blogposts because it’s a chance for me to spam the post with photography and not have people getting annoyed with me for taking over their news feed on Instagram! Plus, it’s a chance for you all to see what I eat in a day and I know some people love that. I know I do.
Breakfast – 11am
I eat beans on toast probably about four times a week now I’m not counting macros and I just can’t get enough. It’s so quick and easy to throw together. I always eat my beans with onion of sorts; white, red, spring onion, they’ve all gone into my beans at some point and it’s an easier way to sneak in some more nutrition too.
I ate breakfast with my sister today and we both added the Dang savoury bacon, coconut flakes to our meals. We were excited to try them because they were coconut flakes that were supposed to taste like bacon, but they were also vegan, dairy free, gluten free and cholesterol free too. However, we were both left very disappointed with the flavour, since they tasted nothing like bacon; just plain old coconut flakes. We tried them both on our food and on their own and the flavour was the same – sweet and coconutty. Although, we both agreed that they were still nice, just sweet instead of savoury bacon.
Alfie loved them too and he couldn’t get enough.
Lunch – 2pm
I kept lunch light and had a protein bar along side a Rebel Kitchen coffee mylk and out of the two that I have tried, the coffee is my favourite. You can view my review for the matcha drink here.
I had also planned to have a crackin egg, but I just couldn’t stomach it in the end. You can read the reviews for the eggs here.
I went for the low carb birthday cake bar by Oh yeah. I’m a huge fan of all of the oh yeah products, although, the big bars will always be my favourite.
The trouble with birthday cake flavours is that they often taste like vanilla and I guess vanilla is one of the main ingredients in standard birthday cakes, but sadly, always a let down in protein bars. I don’t know why they just don’t call birthday cake flavours, vanilla and be done with it.
However, this oh yeah protein bar may be a revelation where the birthday cake flavour is concerned.
Firstly it was covered in sprinkles and if you cover something in sprinkles then it bloody well better taste like birthday cake! And it did! Well, at the very least it wasn’t vanilla: it had a sweet marzipan taste to it. But, it was so delicious and soft. I think this flavour has now become my favourite from the oh yeah low carb range. It’s a definite must try that’s for sure.
Dinner – 5pm
For dinner I had sweet potato fries which I coated in the gym chef seasoning, along side the red cabbage slaw I made yesterday, plus a huge salad with added Quorn chicken pieces and Quorn mince.
- Red Cabbage
- White Onion
- 2 tbsp Alpro Plain Yoghurt
- 1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes
- 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- Salt to Season
Shred the cabbage, finely chop the onion and grate the carrot. Mix it with the other ingredients and boom – red cabbage slaw!
I’m becoming a huge fan of these gym chef seasonings, they are full of flavour, but also salt free too. Although, they are £2.99 for a 50g pot, so I’m not sure if they are value for money. That said, a little does go a very long way. I find them especially useful for adding to chickpeas, lentils, tofu, Quorn; basically food that is bland, but can absorb flavour. But, obviously you can coat food in them too.
After talking to my sister and making her try a sweet potato chip with the gym chef seasoning, we both changed our minds on the price and we actually now believe that £2.99 is great value for money because it is very tasty, it smells amazing and they are also quite spicy and flavourful, without any nasty additives.
If you don’t mind paying £2.99 for a small pot, then I highly recommend them.
Evening Meal – 9pm
For my last meal I plan to have one of my Welsh cakes with a cup of tea, like the old granny that I am and also some of this propercorn. I’ve reviewed propercorn before, in a previous post. But, since I’ve found a new flavour I thought I’d say a few words about it.
Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun Dried Tomato, an unusual flavour of popcorn wouldn’t you agree? Believe it or not the flavours worked really well with the popcorn itself and the flavour’s -Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun Dried Tomato – were both distinguishable and definitely present. However, it smelled a lot more spicy and tomato-y than it tasted.
