BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER

Just like most people, i try to eat a normal, balanced diet.

However, sometimes, quite often, life will get in the way of trying to have a healthy diet.
Meal times are not always easy when you live with another person, also when that person eats meat and you do not. The key is to compromise.

Here are some photographs of what i ate in a day last week.


BREAKFAST - STRAWBERRY & MANGO SMOOTHIE

 ingredients: 
 2 handfuls of strawberries
1 mango
1/2 a cup of water
1 scoop of protein powder

In the morning i woke up and made myself a strawberry and mango smoothie. This particular day i was going for a run, so i needed a breakfast that was going to give me an extra boost of energy. Along with my smoothie i also had a 9-Bar.


LUNCH - AVOCADO & EGG BAGEL

ingredients: 1 ripe avacado
1 egg
1 bagel
1/2 a lime
seasoning

For lunch i made myself an avocado and egg bagel. Whilst i poached an egg, i mashed up one avocado and toasted a bagel. Once the avocado was mashed, i then squeezed the juice of half a lime and added a pinch of salt and pepper to it. After spreading the avocado around the bagel and laying the poached egg on it, i tucked in!


DINNER - VEGETABLE & MASCAPONE PASTA

ingredients: fusilli pasta
extra virgin olive oil
garlic
red onion
chestnut mushrooms
courgette
green pepper
asparagus
green olives
mascarpone 
rocket
seasoning

When deciding what i wanted for dinner this particular evening, i knew i wanted a treat. My favourite food is pasta, so we usually end up having pasta 2-3 times a week. I usually use wholewheat or gluten free, but this night i wanted to treat myself with the good stuff!

In the time that my pasta was boiling away, i fried all the vegetables that i had prepared in extra virgin olive oil, garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper. Once all the vegetables had softened i then added some mascarpone to create a creamy sauce. Afterwards i added the cooked pasta into the vegetables and sauce and mixed them all together. I plated it all up and added some fresh rocket on the side. YUM.


Sometimes it can be hard to find inspiration for meals times, and there is only a certain amount of time you can spend scrolling through Pinterest. Please feel free to comment or tweet me on what you favourite go to meal is!
