I’ve been requested so many times the past few weeks to share full days of eating on my instagram – and to share more of my meals, which i have been doing on my story on my instagram account – but i don’t share all my meals! There can easily become too much focus on food which i don’t know – also that it can lead to comparison of diet and intake which isn’t good. However it seems to be highly requested and appreciated with showing more of my meals – so here is what i ate yesterday as i pictured almost everything!
How much and what i eat varies each day and usually i prefer 3-4 bigger meals per day i.e breakfast/lunch, dinner and a big night snack. But yesterday i felt more hungry and wanted more inbetween snacks, so that’s what i ate. Also yesterday the only thing i did was study/go to a lecture & a 30 minute walk to school, but otherwise it was study from c.a 11am until 8pm.
Breakfast: 2 scones with vegan spread and cheese & a banana afterwards
Lunch: Pasta with a mushroom and oumph sauce (left overs from the day before)
^^This is how my food mostly looks when i don’tplate it specifically for an instagram photo!
Snack: Banana and 2 pieces of chocolate. (If you combine the white chocolate with milk chocolate it tastes like kinder bueno *sort of*)
Dinner: (Which i had prepared in the morning) Cauliflower wings, pickled red onion, avocado, roasted chickpeas, half a baked sweet potato (which i mashed with some salt and sesame seeds), tofu fried in some oil & 1/2 an avocado
Night snack: All i was craving was plain oatmeal with salt, so that is exactly what i had. C.a 2 portions of oats with oat milk and salt. I usually love lots of toppings on my oats – but sometimes i just want to keep it simple and don’t crave any toppings… not even my home made jam or peanut butter. I guess the body just knows what it wants/needs!
I have no idea how many calories i ate or macros – and i don’t care either. I listen to my body and what i ate yesterday was what i wanted/craved/was hungry for.
Everyday is different, somedays i eat more and somedays less… it balances itself out over time! As you can tell, i love having lots of different foods for my lunch and/or dinner (i.e lots of vegetables, potatoes, hummus, avocado, beans, sweet corn etc) but usually for snacks (now a days) just keeping it simple works well for me. And i don’t eat snacks everyday, as i wrote in THIS post. Eating 3-4 big meals per day works better for me and usually my big lunches/dinner keep me satisfied for several hours!
Another reason i don’t do full days of eating so often is that 1) it would require me to picture all my food and remember what i ate each day…. which reminds me that several cups of coffee with oat milk were drank yesterday as well as some cauliflower wings being eaten when i made them in the morning 😉
and 2) i eat pretty much the same thing most days which isn’t alot of variation and no point in sharing everyday or every week if it just looks the same – i.e no inspiration for you, haha!
