FOOD DIARY 3

Another week, another food diary! I can't believe how fast time is going, it literally only feels like one or 2 days since I posted my last one. However, there was still PLENTY of food, so it must be a while ago, eh?


Enjoy reading through my seven featured meals. This is of course, as always, just a selection of what I ate.





If you read my last blog post, this meal might look familiar to you already. It is the Indian curry with homemade paneer, which I attempted to make last week. Check out my last blog post if you would like to know how to make it from scratch. You won't believe how easy it is!


I had this delicious and simple kale salad after an exhausting gym session the other night. I just tossed some kale, avocado and walnuts with balsamico dressing, and it was ready to go. It tasted just as nice as it looked!





This was breakfast from the other day, nothing to special but I really love this combination. I used Coconut yogurt by Coyo from Wholefoods, mixed fruit and sugar free Granola by Dorset. I am currently increasing the fat content (one of the reasons is an amazing book I will review in a future post soon) of my diet a little bit, so the yogurt was very rich and indulgent with 20%.





This delicious salmon fillet was my dinner from Thursday night. I got it from a magazine as part of a "Beauty Foods" series, so all ingredients of the featured recipes are basically very nutritious and good for you, in terms of having amazing benefits for hair, skin, weight etc. The side consisted of sautéed turnip cabbage and leek, plus a cheeky dash of cream with some lemon. I will definitely cook this meal again, it was absolutely divine!




This quick lunch during the week included a chicken tikka sandwich as a base (store bought), but I pimped it up with healthy toppings: avocado, broccoli and a raw carrot.


This was actually last night's dinner. I wanted to create something from leftovers, since we had quite a few vegetables still hanging around the fridge. I decided to make chips from half a butternut squash. I cooked them in the oven for about 30 minutes and sprinkled olive oil and sea salt over the whole tray. Since I don't like traditional dips such as mayonnaise and ketchup, I just added some salted butter. I highly recommend this combination, it's heavenly! I always make my own chips from either sweet potatoes or something like this. I think the last time I bought conventional chips in a restaurant must have been around 6 years ago!





This dinner was made from a recipe I got from Lauren Conrad's website (You should check it out, all meals are very healthy and still indulgent). I used kale pesto from last week's shrimp risotto and baked chicken with mozzarella in the oven. On the side I added some fresh cherry tomatoes. The perfect low-carb dinner where you will not feel you have to compromise.


Have a great week ahead filled with lots of yummy food! As always, I hope I could give you some useful ideas to try.
