From now on, I’m going to post photos of what I eat each day for a week partly to keep myself on track with my clean eating, but also to give you ideas for healthy meals. As you can see from the pictures above, I am a creature of habit- I have no problem eating porridge for breakfast everyday, I absolutely love porridge. Others may find this boring and repetitive, but it works for me.

I eat five meals each day, three main meals and two snacks. This means I eat every two-three hours which keeps my blood sugars stable and helps to increase my metabolism. The chocolate milkshake looking drink is actually vanilla whey protein powder with Alpro chocolate soy milk, which I have after my strength workouts. I only managed to go to the gym three times this week, but I will be increasing this to four days a week from next week.

    This is such a good idea! I try and take pictures of everything i eat on my phone just so I’m more aware of what I’m munching on. Also have to say I’m jealous of how neat your omlettes are, mine are always such a hideous mess! haha, x.

      These pictures are all taken on my phone too. I find it easier than writing down what I eat! Haha my omelettes are still hit and miss! X

    I’m glad you’ll start doing this posts. I always run out of ideas for meals, so this will be helpful. Oh, this might be a bit stupid question, but how do you prepare your porridge? We don’t really eat that in my country and I’ve always wondered how to make it.

      Thank you! I really hope it is useful. It’s not stupid at all. You can make it on the stove/hob, but I make mine at work so use the microwave. You can use water or milk, adding as much or as little as you like depending whether you like it runny or thick. It’s best to see what works for you, add a little bit at a time until its right for you. I microwave mine for 1.5 minutes on a high microwave setting but again, it’ll depend on your microwave. I hope that was somewhat helpful! X

    This is so inspiring! I really need to start clean eating and you’ve motivated me to do that! :)
    I noticed you live in London, I wondered if you have any secret places you purchase your almond butter/fruit and nuts from or if you just get them from the supermarket?
