Planning Works

But can be boring. I’ve got to really think hard and come up with some ideas for next week. I did what I set out to do (for the work week) as far as food goes. But by lunch time today I really thought “roasted veggies, again. whoop-dee-do”. Sure it’s not important to be excited about food all the time because food is sustenance and what you need to fuel and take care of your body. But damn I was EXCITED on Monday! Today, meh, not so much.

Oatmeal (Steel Cut Oats, Peanut Butter (lite), 1/2 a banana, cinnamon, 1 day I had 10g of Neal’s Yard Omega Seed Mix)

I already started with oatmeal a couple weeks ago. I think I like the Seven Grain Hot Cereal more, or maybe I just like that it takes less time to make it in the morning:

eggs with vegetables (bulky, filling)
Monday and Wednesday I had eggs with spinach and mini-mushrooms (2 eggs, 2 egg whites, 150g spinach and 100g mushrooms + Pam cooking spray)

Thursday I had the 2+2 with Kamut and black beans (OMG how delicious was that????)

Today I had it with asparagus, courgette (zucchini) and the rest of the mushrooms:

I have no problem eating just about anything in the morning. Seriously. But today it was a little bit difficult. Maybe it was just too much (I ate ALL in that photo). It was like 325grams of veg. But let me tell you I had no hunger issues WHAT SO EVER.

Lunch Monday, Weds and Friday was the roasted vegetables I mentioned last Sunday, plus the Kamut (100g each meal) that I cooked up and the 100 g chicken breasts I buy from the freezer section already cooked (so all I have to do is thaw and then “cook” in the morning with my own seasonings). In principle a great meal, maybe just not 3 times in a week. I meant to take a photo after I’d warmed it up at work but kept forgetting so you get a photo of it in it’s box ready to go to work with me.

Thursday I worked from home and whipped up this beauty from my freezer: shrimp, frozen veg (what a shock, cauliflower, broccoli and carrots…) and some noodles I had in the cupboard. A little bit of olive oil, some salt, pepper and Moroccan spices and voila

Dinner this week was not all that exciting. Twice I had soup and a sandwich. Once I had a Salad from the supermarket (to go – had it in the train). Once I had the pasta salad I tried last week and really liked (chicken, pesto, sundried tomatoes and peas):

I did that so that the hubs and I could run when I arrived home. The night I had the salad I had been out with a friend and again had my dinner in the train. A lot of train meals this week.

So. Hmmmm. What am I going to eat next week!!

  1. Love the foody post :) although I’m not sure I could do so much veg in one sitting. Hey if it stops you from being hungry though keep doing it! I think it’s great that you persist with making your own food for work each day considering your insane commute. Keep up the good work with your food. I bet you can’t wait to get back into running again :)

    Love the new look & feel of your blog by the way!

    1. If I had more time to be creative, or wasn’t trying so hard to keep my hunger levels down I don’t think I could continually do this. With the time factor though, seems this is the best thing for me at the moment. Don’t have to think about it, just have to throw it together on the day, you know?
