Pictorial: Today's meals

Pre-workout: Vanilla yoghurt with mixed berries and Protein Crunch. Simple, light and yummy!

Post-workout: Apple pie oatmeal (with 1/3 cup skim milk, added after the pic was taken). The photo doesn't do it justice. The fruit is underneath, and it's topped with a crisp, sweet, vanilla, crust. Kind of a cross between pastry and a crumble topping. The fruit you can see is pink because I added strawberries.

Lunch: Grilled chicken, coated in paprika, garlic salt and dried oregano, with baked potato, veggies and a salad

A closer look:

My love of spinach is well-documented, but I am enamoured of this Rainbow Salad from Safeway/Woollies too! :p

Afternoon snack: PN Mixed nut bar, cup of green tea. These look just like brownies, taste quite like them too.

Dinner: More chicken, this time with corn on the cob, broccolini and garlic spinach (garlic, onion, olive oil, spinach)

Dessert: Fresh fruit salad with vanilla yoghurt (added post-photo). Strawberries, blueberries, apple and passionfruit. Hey, I found a use for those wine glasses!

So this is how I eat on a LOWER calorie day. Not bad, eh?

Thanks Kek, see you Sat.
Yummy meals by the way!

Kek said...

No worries, Charlotte.... and see, not a skerrick of wheat to be seen in my meals today. My tummy will be happy!

BTW, I actually had more time than usual today for food prep. Normally on Mondays I'm at the office, but I was home apart from a gym visit and a quick trip to the shops. Still, I could do this easily with a bit of organisation the night before.

Hi Kek,

I'm a bit of a lurker, I really enjoy reading your blog :)

I was wondering, what does the Ladybird Crunch stuff taste like?

Hi Kek,
Bit of a lurker, but taking it all on. In awe iof you all, lots to lose for me, but just getting on with it.

Have a question about buckwheat, you suggested on Kaitie P's blog. I have learnt that I am very sensitive to gluten, so buckwheat is a new phenonenom to me. Is it gluten free?

Hi Kek!

I gotta get back to eating meat and green veg every day! I forgot how much you can eat for such a small amount of calories!

I'd be so full if I ate like that more!

Thanks to your blog I am ditching the diet shakes I was recently given (and have used a couple of) and going to plan again and focus on lots of fresh, healthy meat and veg type meals.

Thanks again!

Yum, can I come to your house for food tomorrow? Or even better can you come to my house and prepare my food, say for the rest of the year... ;-)

And how do you make that Apple Pie Oatmeal? Recipe somewhere? Looks awesome.
