So after just getting into this before my holiday, I have missed the last 3.
I was excited to join the party again! Thanks to Jenn as always.
So this is what I ate yesterday (as we can choose any day from the week).
Porridge (oats, Kara coconut milk and raisins) in my Mighty Maple Jar (from the bloggie food swap). Delish.
Then I went on my first run since my holiday (about 5.7 miles I think) and I needed a snack when I got home!
An alpro strawberry soya milk, and a cute clif mini bar! Seriously how cute is that??? I bought one box of them while we were away. I love mini things!
I was off for an afternoon with some of my friends, so I had half my lunch before I went (mainly because I was hungry and we always eat quite late as it is about an hours drive away and we chat!).
Apple, nectarine, 2 rude health multigrain thins (I love these more than the oaty thins I think) with White chocolate Wonderful (from my holiday- I could not wait to try it!!).
Our lunch consisted of a Food doctor pitta, some dips (taziki and hummus), crisps, and peppers, cucumber and carrots.
(we all provide different bits- so this was what I was taking).
I did not eat any of the crisps, and only had about a tablespoon of the taziki in the end, but I was given a glass of diet pepsi. I have not had fizzy drinks for ages. When I was younger I never liked fizzy drinks, and I think as I got older I trained myself to like them (plus as I don’t drink alchohol it meant I could still have something when out with friends). But I have really gone off them, and I read an article about how something (phosphorus?) in them basically leaches the calcium from your bones which put me off further. I also used to get more headaches, and did wonder if they were to blame. Plus they contain artificial sweeteners, they cause your appetite to go up- so many bad points. I don’t think I have had any in at least a year. Anyway, I had the glass as I thought that it would not hurt. We had a fab time catching up, playing games and wandering around the town, but by the time I left (which was about 8pm I think) I was getting a headache. I thought I was hungry, so when I got home I made a proper dinner. (I was thinking I would have a bagel or something, as it was gone 9pm, but then I thought that if I was going out for dinner I would eat that late, and I was hungry!)
I baked in the oven a courgette, some tomatoes, pepper, some quinoa that was already cooked and some basil tofu, which I sprinkled with balsamic vinegar. This was delish.
While that was cooking I baked some apples and blackberries (from my parents garden- they have grown loads this year) and had some with an alpro pot. It would have gone better with vanilla, but I only had chocolate ones.
When I woke up this morning I still had the headache- it was only a fuzzy one, not really bad, but I think it actually might have been down to the diet pepsi- next time I will have to make sure I drink water like I normally do.
So my question is- do you drink fizzy drinks (diet ones or regular ones)? And do you feel that they affect you in any way?
