What I eat in a week

So a few weeks ago I told you I was going low carb and sugar free as much as possible for 2 weeks. And I thought that it would be a good opportunity to show you what I then eat. So I took pictures here and there throughout the week to show you what my meals looked like and how I ventured in my second and final week of doing this. So if you’ve been wondering what one eats when they go low carb and sugar free, then stay tuned!

What I eat in a week

Now looking at all these meals throughout the week it may not seem too varied, but I live by myself and I don’t have a freezer. So my option in terms of premade meals is very limited. I try to change up what I can, but I also try to waste as little food as possible. So that means that a good chunk of my meals are very similar. Simply because it would be a shame to be throwing things away.

I started the day with a smoothie made with some leftover peaches, raspberries and some coconut milk. I love making smoothies with coconut milk as it is dairy free and a little sweetened naturally. I use a fairtrade coconut milk.

Since it was Sunday I was up quite late so I spent the afternoon snacking and grazing on some fresh blueberries and a nut mix I got from my local farmer’s market. It’s very convenient living on top of it.

For dinner I made a pasta with courgette and avocado. I turned the avocado into a sauce and briefly sauteed the courgette. The pasta I used is a chickpea pasta which is 100% gluten and grain free. I made breakfast muffins for the rest of the week.

evening snack

All of the day time food you see here, from breakfast and lunch to snacks were repeated on Tuesday and Wednesday. I started my day with 2 of my homemade breakfast muffins and a glass of water. I had a pear around the 11 AM mark and lunch was some yoghurt with nuts, dried fruit and flaxseeds.

Around 3 PM I had the veggies and maybe the apple. But mostly the apple came a little bit later. I saved the banana for the train ride home. I usually need something sweet to pick me up at the end of the day and I thought a banana would do the trick and it did.

I repeated dinner from the night before, which is my usual strategy: I cook once and will have the same meals two days in a row. Later that night I had some strawberries as a bit of a snack.

On Tuesday I repeated all the meals from Monday, save dinner and my snack. For dinner I made a protein smoothie. Using coconut milk again, but this time I chucked in some strawberries and frozen black berries.

I measured one scoop of raw protein powder to go into it as well. I prefer raw protein powder that is plant based over whey protein. The latter will turn everything into a milkshake and I don’t like that texture. I finished the day with a nob of cumin cheese.

I know this is getting boring, but I once again repeated breakfast, lunch and all the snacks from Tuesday and only changed dinner. I made some soup some weeks ago and still had some in my uber small freezer. (It’s not that I don’t have a freezer, it’s just very very small). So I had some leftover homemade veggie soup with meatballs for dinner.

Thursday 3 August 2017

For Thursday I had some different meals again. It’s my day off, so I can wake up a bit later, meaning I need less food in a day. I started the day with a handful of strawberries. I like to go for a yin yoga class on Thursday mornings and I have found I like to have eaten something, but not too much before doing that, so I kept my meal at a minimum.

For lunch I had some leftover smoothie and 2 of my breakfast muffins. To me, lunch and breakfast foods are pretty much interchangeable and I figured having the muffins for lunch would be a better idea. I was a bit naughty too and had some dark chocolate with almonds and sea salt. And I cooked some chicken legs and beetroot for dinner.

Friday 4 August & Saturday 5 August 2017

I roped these two together as my meals were very similar again and at this point I was starting to forget taking pictures. I started the day on Friday with my yoghurt/ nut combo and had muffins for breakfast. On Saturday I changed that up and changed them around instead. On Friday I had the chicken and beetroot from Thursday again and some more cheese.

On Saturday I decided to treat myself. My deal with myself was that I was allowed to order sushi if I made it through these two weeks. And I did, so on Saturday night, I treated myself to sushi. And that’s a wrap on two weeks on a low carb and sugar free diet. My body is also telling me that it has had enough, so I made some pasta this weekend to have this week, because I need some carbs back into my system. But it was a great way to kickstart and get myself back into gear.

  1. Ik ben op dit moment vooral bezig om mijn keukenkastjes “leeg te eten”. Ik had nog drie pakken havermout staan en dat at ik al een hele tijd niet meer. Dus nu elke ochtend havermout met melk en cacaostukjes en rozijnen en kokossnippers en bananen (die laatste wel vers :p), en dan voor lunch twee boterhammen met beleg dat op moet (en dat ik dan ook niet meer nieuw ga kopen), en ‘s avonds wel gewoon standaard avondeten. Vorige week alleen Japans gekookt voor avondeten, deze week ook weer Italiaanse pasta, een keer een tonijnsalade, en toch maar weer Japans koken, want dat is gewoon lekker πŸ™‚
