It’s all about food at this time of year, even more so on a Sunday. I’ve mentioned before that I’m obsessed with watching food diary videos and having a nose at what people eat. I haven’t done a food diary post in a while so I thought I’d share my what I eat on a Sunday. My diet tends to be really healthy in the week. It slips a little at the weekend, especially when my routine goes out of the window. Well as much as it can when you’re on a restricted diet. (I have Crohn’s disease, you can read about my diet here and catch up on my foodie Friday posts here.) So without further ado, here’s my what I eat in a day – the Sunday edition.
I begin my day with a glass of water and my Seven Seas perfect 7 vitamin tablets. I’ve only just started taking these so I shall update you on how I’m getting on soon. I always wake up thirsty so I make an effort to drink water before I do anything else.
Next up is breakfast. I’m a big porridge fan, I make mine with almond milk in my snazzy porridge mug. It has measurement lines on the inside and recipe suggestions on the outside. I make mine with almond milk and today I added sultanas, chia seeds, prunes and some peanut butter. It was delicious!
Before we headed out to take blog pictures I decided to have a coffee and a cookie. I’m a big fan of the Nescafe Azera coffee – in my opinion it’s the best instant coffee out there. The cookies are my homemade chocolate and cherry american style cookies, (recipe here). I used buckwheat flour and coconut sugar this time around and it worked just as well. These are delicious and go perfectly with a hot drink.
On the way back from taking blog pictures we nipped into The Coffee Corner on Onley Street. It is a cute little cafe, with the friendliest owner who makes some of the best coffee in the city. It’s just around the corner from our house, which is amazing. I opted for a toffee nut latte with soya milk.
After a long walk around Mousehold Heath, I decided to have a delicious bowl of mushroom soup. Normally I’d make my own, but I’m away for part of next week. So I cheated and bought cans of Heinz soup at the supermarket. Naughty but ever so nice!
It’s not really an Autumnal Sunday without a roast dinner! Hamish cooked up some balsamic glazed slow roasted pork, with honey glazed carrots, twice roasted mirabelle potates, leeks in cheese sauce and some broccoli. It was scrumptious – the perfect way to end a lovely Sunday.
It’s not been the healthiest of Sundays, I could probably have done with eating a bit more fruit and veg, but hey ho, I’m keeping it real! Let me know if your enjoyed my what I eat in a day – the Sunday edition. If you’ve posted something similar link me up on the comments.
