Watch: Adura’s Healthy Food Diary – Day 2

   

 Adura’s food diary continues! Click here if you’ve missed previous posts.

Here’s Tuesday’s post:

As you can see from the video, I was up early. My Monday started at 10am, Tuesday at 5.50 am.

On Tuesday, I work out at 7am (Fitter London Kettlebells) and also teach a spin class (another workout as I teach on the bike) at 1.15pm. This usually means I have a larger appetite, also as it’s still early in the week, I find that I stick to my healthy eating goals 100%.

I had dinner very early and this is a new thing I’m trying on days I get home after 8pm. After 8pm, I usually get home tired AND lazy so I do one of two things:

  • Eat dinner very late, after 8.30pm –> Going to bed on a full stomach and just feeling uncomfortable
    or
  • I don’t eat at all –> Next morning I wake up ravenous and eat anything I can get my hands on. Even before a workout, which is not ideal.
My nutritionist friend, Keris of Fitter London, suggested I start eating dinner early on these days so I don’t have to worry about eating so late. It’s working!!!

As NaturalNigerian rightly brought up – what was my water intake for the day? I’d say about 2.5 litres. I drink a lot of water most days, especially when I work out. I also had 2 mugs of tea.

    Hey Adura, thanks for sharing your food diary. please how do you prepare your spinach? it looks really plain, i usually add a lot of spices to make it tasty but i have always wanted to try it plain like the one in the video. do you have any tips in making spinach tasty just the way it is?

    Hi BIM,

    I usually cook spinach with blended tomatoes but sometimes (like here) I just steam the spinach in a little chicken stock and add herbs, spices and prawn/shrimp.

    Spinach, like most vegetables, can taste bland so adding a litle salt is a must for me.

    Natural herbs/spices (instead of Maggi, etc) gives it extra flavour of course 🙂
