First post on Facineating!

I’ll skip the long introduction (you’ll get to know me eventually by following my blog). This is my first post and the beginning of a lifetime of healthy eating habits. Cheers!

Now, let’s get straight to business, here’s what has been on my menu today:

9:50am For breakfast I had my usual, which I absolutely love: a bowl of fruit (1 apple, 1 kiwi and 1/2 cup raspberries and strawberries), two organic whole wheat quinoa rice crackers with my hummus and some arugula and a cup of organic green tea.

I met a friend in town for lunch but wasn’t hungry since I’d just eaten breakfast so I had a cup of green tea while she had her lunch. (Sorry, no picture.)

3:05pm After walking around in town and running some errands I arrived home and had lunch. I had  a bowl (about 1 1/2 cups) of oats with about 1/2 cup of raspberries mixed in while cooking. I topped it with a nice spoonful of creamy organic peanut butter. This was my first time having a spoonful of peanut butter in my oats, it was so good!  And of course, another cup of organic green tea.

6:20pm Dinner (sorry about the bad picture quality, kitchen lighting…) was a bowl of carrots and cabbage (1 carrot, 1 cup of cabbage, 1 tsp red curry paste) topped off with a tablespoon of my hummus. I also had an organic whole wheat quinoa rice cracker and another cup of organic green tea.

Although I felt filled up from my dinner I was craving some kind of treat, and the creamy peanut butter I’d just picked up at an organic shop today was calling my name. I whipped out a small spoonful of it and spread it on a banana. I also threw together a small bowl of about 1/2 cup rice milk, 1/2 cup cereal puffs and 1 tbs of goji berries. I didn’t even wind up using the whole dollop of peanut butter. Now I’m full! (Again, sorry about the bad picture quality)

Total calorie intake: ~993 kcal

Exercise today:
40 minutes speedwalking in town
100 crunches
25 dumbell lifts (2kg weights)
20 lunges with dumbells
10 “girly” pushups

What was your special little treat this Monday?

  1. Hey girl! Thanks for your comments :D I totally LOVE your placements, and matching red oats! I never make oatmeal but everyone else’s looks so good. My treat has been a BUNCH of little peanut butter easter eggs- haha and probably more to come.

  2. Hi Tina-I’m lovin’ the name of your new blog! Your morning bowl of fruit looks so yummy, and the color of your oatmeal is gorgeous. I’m looking forward to reading your posts :)
