My Daily Food Diary + Recipes

Daily Food Diary + Recipes

You guys asked for it, so here it is, my revised food diary! I like to keep things simple so I have the same pre-work and breakfast meal every morning. It’s a great way for me to get my calories in and both taste so delicious. All my meals are super easy. You’ll notice most of my meals follow the method of “combine in bowl”. I don’t have time to cook and I don’t like it, so all these meals are great if you’re busy like me! I'm currently bulking (eating in a calorie surplus) and eating between 2,300 - 2,500 calories a day. I'm working on incorporating more fruit and veggies into my day as I've realised by doing this that I'm severely lacking! Keeping a food diary for a week is something I highly recommend, you never realise how much you're missing out on (or what you're eating too much of). 

Pre-workout: Protein Smoothie

INGREDIENTS
250ml oat milk
30g rolled oats
15g Women’s Best Whey Protein
1/2 frozen banana
1 tbsp peanut butter
Ice 

METHOD
Mix all ingredients in a blender and blend. Pour to serve. 

Breakfast: Bircher Muesli

INGREDIENTS
150g greek yogurt
70g rolled oats
1 grated apple
70g frozen mixed berries
1 tsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
10g Women’s Best Whey Protein

METHOD
Mix all together in a bowl and leave to soak overnight. 

Snack: Carrots and Dip

INGREDIENTS
2 carrots
1/2 avocado
15g cream cheese
1/2 lemon
pinch of salt and pepper 

METHOD
Dip: combine avocado, cream cheese and squeeze half a lemon into a bowl and blend with an electrical hand blender. Mix in salt and pepper. Chop carrots and serve with dip. 

Lunch: Gnocchi Napoletana

*Gonna keep it real here, I very rarely eat lunch that I have made. My lunch consists of leftovers from UberEats (gnocchi napoletana or another low fat pasta option). Or I'll have left over Indian from Monday night dinner at my boyfriend's mums house. She's very healthy and doesn't use heavy creamy, oils or fats to cook her food. I also eat a lot of Youfoodz which is a healthy food delivery service in Australia.  

Snack: Toast

2 slices of wholemeal toast with Nutlex, Peanut Butter and Nutella 

Dinner: Cheese + Bean Quesadilla

INGREDIENTS  
1 wholemeal flat bread
80g refried beans
50g grated cheese
2 tbsp light sour cream
Salsa: 1/4 can of corn, 1/2 medium tomato, 15g red onion and a squeeze of lemon

METHOD
Pre-heat oven to 180degrees. Prepare flat bread on a plate and spread the refried beans over the bread. Mix the salsa ingredients together and spread over one half of the bread. Spread the cheese over the other half of the bread. Transfer to a tray and pop in the oven. Take out when the cheese has melted (should be around 5-10 minutes). Spread sour cream on top of the salsa and fold bread in half. Use a spatula to remove from the tray and plate up. Cut into 4 triangle slices.     

Snack: Tea and Chocolate

English Breakfast tea and a Tim Tam :)
