Mondays can be tough! You're going back to work (booo)! Got to get up early! Make sure you have everything for the day ahead etc etc etc.... but if you take a little time to plan ahead then they can be easier than you think!
I take the time to plan what I am going to have to eat over the following 7 days so I know what I need to get at the supermarket, what I need to cook, prepare snacks and most importantly decide what my treat is going to be so I can look forward to it!
Above is a picture of my food from this Monday!
Breakfast was 2 poached eggs, 2 slices of wholemeal seeded bread and an avocado. The bread is toasted and the avocado smashed into the toast with the eggs placed nicely on top. This is by far my favourite breakfast, it doesn't take long and is packed full of protein, good fats and carbs to get your day started.
Lunch was chicken and mixed veg. Mondays are quite busy so I don't normally get time to train so lunch is low carb so I don't over do it and generally I eat on the go. The veg pot was a microwavable one which did have a garlic butter in so this added the flavour to the veg and the chicken was just plain roasted. Tasty and nutritious whilst on the go!
Dinner was salmon with Bombay veg and potato. The salmon was roasted in the oven with garam masala on top. Using a Bombay potato spice mix I cooked cooked veg and a few potatoes in the spice and then served with some Greek yoghurt.
I also had a couple of Snacks between meals, in the morning I had a yoghurt which was lactose free and in the afternoon I had a snack bar with an apple.
Overall there is a good mix of proteins, good fats, carbohydrates and vegetables so I am fuelled throughout the day. I eat every 4 hours or so which means I don't feel hungry and I am able to keep my energy levels up throughout the day.
