I’ve been having such a tough time with my energy levels, and therefore my comfort eating. It’s not even like I am eating loads of rubbish, I am just EATING. My weight fluctuates constantly.
This past week I have been sleeping longer and deeper, meaning I am waking up with a lot more get go. By the early evening, I am completely shattered so I need to utilise these energy driven mornings while I can! So after I’ve finished my breakfast, I’ll be heading to the gym.
On weekdays, I am eating breakfast in a rush. Long gone are the days where I’d make a cooked breakfast everyday of eggs and chorizo. I’m resorting to toast (porridge makes my tummy poorly, although I do love it!), which is just fake calories and carbs. Bread is the worst. What nutrition is there? When I cut bread out of my diet, I was so slim and eating right.
As today is a Saturday, I am making the effort to eat right. I made a protein smoothie:
This smoothie was made with…
- One banana
- Handful of blueberries (about 15 in quantity)
- One scoop of unflavoured whey isolate
- Three heaped tablespoons of protein natural yoghurt (I would say about 150g)
- 200ml of unroasted and unsweetened almond milk
