I’ve been wanting to try ‘Life Cafe’ for AGESSSSS and I’m so glad I finally got to try it out! Everything there is super healthy & organic. My life salad bowl had: grated carrot & beetroot, sprouted mung beans, organic chickpea hummus, mixed nuts and seeds, nutritional yeast, fresh herb dressing, and life organic flaxseed crackers (as stated on the menu). EVERYTHING in that bowl tasted amazing, and god knows how they made that herb sauce because it tastes like heavennnnn.

Snack: wholewheat crackers, grapes

Dinner: Fish, veggies, 1 bowl of soup

  

 I actually hate this fish so much because my parents like everything with a super strong flavour and this fish is SOOO FREAKING SALTY it tastes like I’m eating straight up salt.

My mum got pissed at me because I was eating too little for dinner…what??? I ate stuff before that, and she was like “Then don’t eat any snacks” and I’m like “I’ll get so hungry by dinner I’ll devour everything”. Gosh, it’s my life, my choices, my diet.

20 March: Documentary overload

Today was not so bad as well! I’m starting to get kinda worried about the whole fruit sugar thing and that being bad for you, because the previous article I read stated it doesn’t raise your blood glucose levels…but does that mean it prevents you from gaining weight?! I’m so confused, some websites say it’s best to limit the number of fruits you eat in a day but then freelee the banana girl eats…just bananas – literally, and she’s fit af! GAH IDK will do more research on this.

Btw totally gone food documentary crazy…I watched 4 documentaries in the past 2 days about food, meat etc. These are: food inc, forks over knives, hungry for change and vegucated. These 2 days were clearly very productive….

Breakfast: 3-4 tbsp oatmeal, soy milk

Snack: Grapes

Lunch: Beans – idk what they’re called, see the photo below:

Snack: 1 banana, 1 apricot

Dinner: Salmon, eggs (god I felt so bad but there was nothing else I could eat), shrimp

I’m trying to limit my dairy intake because mannnn watching all those food documentaries and seeing the way that cows are seriously alive just for human production, the way they are forced to give birth, then the baby is immediately dragged away – if it’s male it will be used for beef, if it’s female it would be used to produce milk for our consumption in the future. And you know how mothers are super protective of their children when they’re born (as in animals, but humans are too), I mean to have them stripped away from them immediately? That’s just cruel. And right after that, humans inject sperm into their…area? Idk what u call it, and then metal tubes are placed on their utters so that milk can come out. What is wrong with us??? So yeah, TRYING to limit my dairy, but if the situation arises, like today, then I’ll still eat it, but just not a lot.

Snack: Blueberries

19th March: pretty good!

Breakfast: Banana muffins

IMG_9044

These are from Cassey’s (Blogilates) recipe! They’re so simple to make – just 1 egg, a bit of oats (around 3-4 tbsp) and 1/2 a banana. And I eat the other half. It tastes amazing, it’s surprisingly sweet because my banana was quite ripe

Lunch: Stir-fried peas

Exercise: 30 min treadmill & tried that machine which I don’t know the name of…it worked out the chest, shoulders & back, the one where you push…yeah..so I tried one of the weights which was STILL SO HARD. Guess that’s a sign I need to work out my muscles more..

ALSO from the blogilates exercise yesterday, I think I have DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness or something like that) because my muscles are only starting to hurt this evening. BUT I’m so glad they do, because that means I worked them hard! (or that I just hadn’t worked out in a long time..let’s avoid that possibility)

For the 30 min treadmill, I ran at 8 for 10 minutes, then did HIIT running for 20 minutes – so I ran at 11.2 for 1 minute, then stepped off and vice versa. SO SWEATY AFTERWARD

Snack: 1 banana, 1 nectarine

Cries my nectarine molded slightly on the top, so I cut that part out.

Dinner: Yellow pepper, sole fish, 2 bowls of soup

The sole fish was waaayyyy too salty..maybe because I wasn’t eating any rice unlike my parents, but wow that was SALTY.

Snack: 1/2 a papaya

I also found out yesterday, that the sugars from fruit is PERFECTLY FINE FOR YOU. And the belief that bananas will give you a ‘potassium overdose’ is FALSE. Having this mindset made me eat SOO much more healthier. I mean look at my snack! All just fruit! 😀

19th March: pretty good!
