Happy Friday!

I think I’ll do more ‘What I eat’ videos during the week because they seem to be popular. I think we’re all interested and curious about the eating habits of others. At least I know I am, since my Instagram feed is nothing but food! 🙂

 

I’ve been eating more fats lately and I feel good. Today I even managed to eat an entire 200g tub of hummus! It was tasty and filling but I probably shouldn’t be eating it every day. Avocado is my first choice for fat since it isn’t processed at all, but I also picked up some hummus and Meridian peanut butter to eat as I like. I’ll eat fats as I crave them but will try to fill up on fruit first.

At any rate, I’m happy with all the food I ate today and everything I’ve eaten this week. I’m ready for the weekend as this will be my first full weekend with Kuba now that I’ve been back here for close to a week.

I hope you have a nice weekend! Catch up with you on Monday. Thanks for reading my blog and watching my videos! 🙂

What I eat in a day – Dundee, Dec. 7

I haven’t been back in Dundee a week yet but it almost feels like I never left! Everything is back to normal now. I wake up next to my boyfriend every morning and never have to worry about one of us leaving. Since I’ve returned, my days have been relaxed mainly because of the typical rainy weather here!

The rain held off today so I ventured into the city centre today just to stretch my legs. I scoped out Heart Space Whole Foods for the first time and swung by The Health Store to pick up some food and fortunately caught my friend Rebecca working there.

I hope this video serves as a guide if you are interested in veganism. This will give you some idea about what meals are like.

When watching this video, keep in mind:

  • My calorie intake is never set in stone. If I feel like I need to eat more, I simply eat more and never restrict calories.
  • Walking is my only form of exercise. My daily average is 3.2 miles.

I don’t plan on doing Cronometer screenshots anymore because I’ve done quite a few already. You can find previous posts with Cronometer screenshots here on my blog: What I eat in a day. I also have all these videos in a playlist on my YouTube channel.

If you’d like to see more of these please let me know and I’ll consider tracking my meals again. 🙂

What I eat in a day – my last week in Dublin!

Three more sleeps! I’m glad I have these videos to work on just to keep my mind off how EXCITED I am to be returning to Scotland in a few days.

I hope this video and my Cronometer food diary (posted below) can serve as a guide if you are interested in veganism. This will give you some idea about what meals are like.

When looking at my food diary, keep in mind:

  • My calorie intake is never set in stone. If I feel like I need to eat more, I simply eat more and never restrict calories.
  • My macronutrient ratio is set to LFRV (low fat raw vegan) within Cronometer. My calorie summary reflects percentages based on the 80/10/10 ratio. I aim to eat at least 80% of my calories from carbs, at most 10% from protein and at most 10% from fat.
  • Walking is my only form of exercise. My daily average is 4.9 miles.

My meals:

  • Breakfast: oatmeal made with oat milk topped with sliced bananas
  • Lunch: grapes and two oranges
  • Dinner: three gluten-free hummus wraps

My macronutrient ratio:

  • 79.3% of my calories came from carbohydrates
  • 9.4% from protein
  • 11.3% from fat

The best part of today (besides the sunshine) had to be the oranges. They were so sweet and juicy! I need to eat more citrus fruits because I miss them. My diet has been all over the place lately, but come this Saturday I’ll be back at home in Scotland. I’m SO PUMPED to be back with my boyfriend and cooking in our own kitchen again! I expect I’ll eat less hummus and more potatoes with steamed veggies since that’s ‘business as usual’ for him. He likes to cook our meals so I’m happy to eat whatever he prepares for us. 🙂
