What I Eat In A Day

Most of you will know (of) Niomi Smart, and a large majority of you will have probably seen her What I Eat In A Day videos. First things first, I am not vegan, and what I eat is no where near as healthy as she eats, but recently I've wanted to change up my diet, and what is more motivating than to blog my experiences, where I can look back on in the future.  p.s thanks for the inspiration niomi!
 
BREAKFAST
Breakfast and I have a love hate relationship. Most weekends I skip this meal (which I know if awful) and replace with a large, unhealthy brunch. However, my Nutri-Bullet has been a life saver, every morning I actually get excited thinking about what fruits and veg I am going to blend for my morning smoothie. This particular morning I chose to have a avocado, banana, spinach, nectarine and apple smoothie (or it could possibly be a juice because I blended it with water). Anyway, I deliberately made a large cup of this to keep me going for the next few hours, and I must add that it was surprisingly filling.
 





LUNCH
Lunch is a meal which also varies from day to day. At school, I will normally consume a sandwich or some sort, but at home I tend to stick with cooked lunches, and the majority of the them contain eggs.
I made this scrambled egg on toast from scratch *pro chef?* and piled it onto two slices of white bread. Something I do want to change in my diet is swapping white bread for brown bread, but this will have to be a gradual change.
 
 
 
 
DINNER
In celebration of my mums birthday, I accompanied my family to a dinner at Cote, which was lovely. In some ways this doesn't fit the post, of course I do not eat out every single night, nor do I have a starter at home, however the food quantities and types are similar. For starters I ordered the Pork Rillettes with Sourdough Bread, not realising that the meat came in a pâté form. I ended up swapping my starter with my dad, who had ordered calamari, and gosh that was a gorgeous dish! For mains, I ordered the Chargrilled Chicken Breast with Garlic Butter, and that was divine, I've never tasted chicken that good. Now, because I was following a set menu, a pudding was obviously obligatory. The 'Crumble Aux Pommes' took my fancy, and like the other dishes, it was very delicious.
