WHAT I EAT EVERY DAY

Good Morning people.

The last few weeks, no, the last month has been filled with alcohol, sweets and a lot of dining out. My birthday was at the end of May, then 1-week holiday and then I had my sister visiting.  I’ve been eating more than I would normally eat (and drink more than I normally drink) – however my weight hasn’t gone up that much, nearly nothing at all to be honest.

My weight has been set on 65 – 65.5 kgs for months now. I don’t do any special diet or eating patterns. I just eat what I want – but are conscious of my food choices and meal sizes. As you probably know – I HATE calorie or macro counting. I can’t deal with it and it’s not for me. I rather try to focus on eating nutrient dense foods and eat for health benefits rather than low calorie, high/low fat/protein/carbs.

So what do I eat? It fluctuates from week to week but here is the main foods I eat on an every day basis:

Dairy products: Greek yoghurt, Coconut milk(always in my coffee), mozzarella, eggs

Meat: Burgers(good quality beef), chicken, duck breast

Vegetables: Leafy salad, carrots, tomatoes, kale, spinach, sweet potatoes

Fruit: Avocado, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apples, bananas

Grains/seeds: Rice(whole grain, basmati or jasmine), Quinoa

Other: Warburtons thins rye bread, 50% less sugar ketchup, Italian salad dressing, oat cakes, peanut butter, no sugar raspberry jam

There is, of course, a lot of other foods in my diet – but these are the main ones and what I would put in my shopping basket when food shopping.
I eat when I’m hungry and I eat until I feel full. Simple as that. Eating right can be very advanced or very simple. Sometimes is just easier to go back to basic and try to eat mainly fresh produce.
