Diet- Day 1 lunch, dinner and snacking

For lunch I had some carbs. Cassava, sweet potato and plantain all boiled not fried. I topped it with stewed salt fish with lots of garlic, onions and tomatoes. It was delicious 

This was really satisfying and I did not need to snack. For dinner I did not eat much I had a bowl of steamed edamame. 

Lightly salted with seasalt and sprinkled with chili flakes. 

The snacks I had for today included half of a pink grapefruit 

And some homemade fruit and nuts mixture: sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pecans, dried cranberries, dried apricots, dried figs, and dates. 

For me day 1 was rather successful. I had a warm cup of Chinese green tea before going to bed. Of course I had it without milk and sugar. Hubby had his with little milk and sugar. Today was encouraging.

Diet Day 1 - Breakfast

So this morning was a challenge as I need to go to the grocery (tmi right) so I tried to make do with what I had available     I decided to go with a fruit parfait. 
Ingredient: fruit, yogurt and cereal
I used grapes as my fruit but if I have more fruits at home I love using about 2-3 fruits. I used peach yogurt my fav yogurt flavor and it has chunky pieces of fruit inside 😍😍😍. And I used honey Cheerios my fav... 
How you make the fruit parfait?
Put a layer of fruit then add a layer of yogurt and then sprinkle a layer of cereal. I then repeat this step until I run out of goodies. 

I love using just 1 prepackaged cup you buy at the grocery as my portion size. 
After I'm through I mixed some roasted nuts (salt free) sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and pecans (chopped) and sprinkled it on the top. 

So that's what my final product looks like. I have been making this on and off for breakfast since early January 2013 (new years resolution to eat healthy .... And yes it's November 😜😜😜) 
I love this and would recommend it for all who want to eat healthy and get more fruits in their diet. 

I may not update everyday but I will try my best when I can. Hope this was helpful. What's your favorite healthy breakfast combo? 

30-day Food Challenge

I've decided to put myself on a 30-day food challenge or diet as the case may be. I need to eat healthier. Avoid soda, carbs, sugars etc. in addition I need to exercise at Least three times a week. So today being Day 1 I'm hopeful. I will try to blog and if possible vlog. I promised myself that once a week I will give myself a treat as long as I can be faithful to this cause. 

If you would like to join me on this adventure please do.. My hubby is also anxious to attempt lol l am anxious to see how far he will go. 

At nights I usually drink tea before going to bed, tonight's choice is Chinese green tea without milk and sugar... Cheers!!!
