My Diet in a Day #1

A new little series that I thought would be quite interesting for you. A lot of my friends ask me what I eat, or what they can eat to stay healthy - and although I'm still learning, I've definitely picked up a few yummy recipes along the way! As some of you may know, I do Intermittent Fasting*, which means that I only eat within an 8 hour window. I've decided to eat between midday and 8pm so I miss breakfast, so sorry if you don't get many breakfast options!

I guess the fist one could technically be classed as a little breakfast-y... But only because there's eggs involved! For my lunch I made salsa-baked eggs using my own homemade salsa. These are so simple to make - all you have to do is spray some oil into a cupcake or muffin tray and add a dollop of chunky salsa into each slot you are using, before cracking an egg into each and popping it into a pre-heated over for 8-12 minutes! To go with them, I piled my plate high with heaps of yummy veg such as green beans, spinach and carrots, and shredded a bit of turkey ham on the top. DELICIOUS. And to make it even better, each salsa-baked egg is around 90 calories!

For dinner, I cooked some Quorn mince, and then mixed it in a bowl with some cucumber, tomato and spinach before sprinkling it with some light Cathedral City cheese and a little light mayonnaise. This has probably got to be one of the most filling meals EVER, and it was such a nice change to use Quorn mine instead of actual meat, and it tasted awesome too. This is quite a calorific meal at over 500 calories, but it's super low in carbohydrates and has over 20g of protein so it's amazing if you're on a low-carb diet.

Snacks-wise I didn't really need to eat anything as I was pretty full from the two meals! I did however have two protein shakes just to top up my protein levels and to keep me going til I can break my fast again tomorrow. :)

What are your go-to healthy meals? These ones were super quick to make and altogether came in at 1300 calories! If you have any recipes that you love, email them over with a picture of your masterpiece and I'll feature them on my blog. :)

Can't wait to hear from you all - hope you're having fun in the snow! :)
