This is my first post from the monthly series: What I Ate Wednesday. This Wednesday hubby and I are going to eat out and the whole idea behind this kind of posts is to show what I would eat in a regular day. So I took pictures yesterday.
In the morning I started with 2 slices of wholemeal bread, different types of cheese, kalamata and green olives marinated at home. For dessert some grapes and the second cup of coffee (2 of 3 yesterday). I can have sandwiches with soup or salads, but in the morning I usually pick something that is filling.
For lunch I’ve made spicy rice with aubergine filled with tomato sauce and roughly chopped parsley. The aubergine took only a few minutes to prepare, as my lunches usually do. I cut it half, scoop part of its flesh, pricked it with a fork and bake it with skin facing up for 20 minutes at 200C. While it was baking, I chopped the aubergine flesh and salt it slightly. After the timer went off, I took the aubergines out of the oven and flipped them. I mixed the aubergine flesh with some tomato sauce with mushrooms and a chopped spring onion and I tipped the sauce into the aubergines. There is no oil or any kind of fat.
I placed them back in oven with the timer for another 20-25 minutes. I had the rice already cooked, but it takes only 10-12 minutes on the hob. The dish was ready to be served and I didn’t have to do lots of things. The dish is vegan.
As a dessert another batch of grapes. I didn’t have a lot of options; I went shopping in the evening.
At around 6pm I finished my Insanity workout. After working out I usually drink a whey protein shake with a teaspoon of jam. Yesterday I had homemade banana jam.
After 1 hour I had dinner, which was 2 fried eggs and a little bit of cheese on top. A tomato, pepper and cucumber salad with a drizzle of olive oil.
What are my thoughts after the first day? Well, I had a little too much cheese, as my fridge wasn’t stocked as good as it should have been. But this is what happens without planning and it can get more realistic than that. As for nutrients, I had 1700 calories and 90g proteins.
