Just wanted to point out an awesome article by Ryan Andrews on the Precision Nutrition site today: Be Your Own Nutrition Expert.


Got out for a walk with Rob and TJ this morning. Here’s TJ waiting to cross the road:

We bumped one of our neighbours and his dog in the park. ‘Say hello to my little friend’:

When we got home I had porridge with soy milk, raisins and almonds for breakfast:

Mid-morning I went to get a snack out of the fridge. Yesterday’s leftover smoothie was still sitting in there so I reached for the glass… and it slid right through my fingers and smashed on the floor:

That took a while to clean up (amazing how far all the liquid and glass went!) so for a snack I just grabbed a small container of chopped pineapple I had in the fridge:

That didn’t keep me full for long so I had an early lunch – a sandwich made with hummus, shredded lettuce, sliced avocado, tomatoes, red onion, sprouts and a sprinkle of cajun spice:

Now that was filling!

Later I had a snack of some walnuts and an apple:

Rob wasn’t that hungry at dinnertime so I had another snack to keep me going until later. Low-fat Greek yoghurt and strawberries:

This was so good! I haven’t had Greek yoghurt for ages and I’d forgotten how much I liked it.

Dinner was grilled salmon with lentils and spinach, and slow roasted tomatoes:

The best thing about this was the tomatoes – they were so sweet and had lots of flavour!

For dessert I had some chopped walnuts, dried figs and cinnamon mixed together:

I love figs.
