A bad week

Food wise last week was a bad week. I was on the road 2 days, work related and didn’t really get to fuel properly.

Time to learn something!

What worked well?

I forced myself to eat porridge before taking off. It took over 30 minutes to get it down, but was worth it. I would’ve bonked at the meeting otherwise.

What else is creeping up?

I need to improve my hydration again, might have been slipping there as well. Maybe track it again for a week ….

Work does not trump food!!! I need to get back to doing lunch breaks and cook! If I am not fuelled I can’t think.

As a sidenote … I am having some fun getting used to the new me and watch my mind adapt. If I pass by a mirror and don’t really make an effort I still see my old self. So now I totally get how people with eating disorders feel when they say ‘I am fat’ albeit their bones being visible.

My weight has pretty much stayed the same over the past few weeks. This makes me feel confident that this box is ticked off. I have finally found a way to live and eat balanced that works for me.

Now all I have to do is make sure I get everything my body needs.

Soul Food

Unfortunately I can’t yet post awesome looking crisp photos of my sweet potato fries/chips. Why? I just can’t get them crisp enough for my liking.

I might be using too much oil, too little … need something extra …

However they still taste awesome especially with vegan mayonaise and ketchup.

I really want a recipe for the oven and get them crisp. Any suggestions?
