New me, New habits: Day 5

Breakfast: Tea with no sugar, back on the yoghurt and fruit!

Sprinkled with some sunflower and linseeds, and a half teaspoon of tumeric (which you don’t even taste once you mix it in)

 Lunch: Hmmm, I drank lots of water? Did I mention that yoghurt? It was quite filling

I have been doing pretty well so far this week with my diet.  However, I did not even register the fact that I have been having daily hot chocolates at work.  As it comes from a vending machine, I am not sure of the nutritional content, but I know it definitely has sugar!  After a little scouring of the internet, I found some nutrition labels for various instant hot chocolates.

OK sugar is not as bad as I thought, but its carb heavy and most of those are from refined sugars.  Something else I will have to say goodbye to.

Dinner: OK by now I am starving (another reason why three meals a day is important!)  I REALLY want to treat myself, and I have been craving pizza all week.  So I compromise by buying an American Hot with a gluten-free pizza base. The base is as how you would expect with gluten free products; thinner and more dense, but the flavours of the toppings make it worth it.

I tried looking for the nutritional information to make sure that it didn’t have any sugar but only found info for the regular crust supermarket version – even so, the amount of sugar is about 7.4g for a whole pizza (which is just over a teaspoon- that’s not bad).

I did find a nutritional content sheet for every dish at Pizza Express – see here, although it just had information for a gluten free base only (which interestingly has more carbs than the classic crust, though on 1.7g of sugar).

Anyway, It’s Friday, I got my pizza, and I’m off on holiday next week, so no regrets.

  1. Yogurt looks lovely. Creating new habits is what it is all about. It took me years to find some potential good habits that I could turn into actual habits. Check out my blog to see how I did it. Good luck with your diet😃
