Oatcakes mean happy!

Following on from last weeks post re the problem solving properties of  Custard Creams (!) I thought I would write a short post to let you know my eating is now back on track. Thanks in part to the humble oatcake and my new filofax inserts – which you can download HERE

Back to eating better

Once I get back in the ‘diet zone’ I really do feel a lot better, I have more energy, sleep better and my skin looks clearer.

I try to vary my diet but my lunches all tend to be fairly similar and feature Mr O Cake a lot!Lunch box, cutlery, water bottle, oatcakes, apple

Everyday Lunch

I like Nairns Organic Super Seeded Oatcakes which taste great just as there are.  I also like to have a packet of Walkers Baked crisps, always an apple and usually a banana.  If I’m at home I’ll have about 100g of Skyr (fat free) with a few frozen raspberries.  When I’m out and about I try and find a 0% fat pot of natural greek yoghurt as the Skyr pots are usually too big.

I do a fair amount of travel in my day job, so have got myself a cute sandwich box with a lid that doubles as a mini chopping board as I always cut up my apple due to my ongoing orthodontic work.

I travel with my Joseph cutlery set and Bunny my cockapoo has lent me his Butternut Box# bandana; which comes in handy as I too can be a bit of a mucky pup!Oatcakes and apple on chopping board

I appreciate it may not seem like a lot of food but it does take a while to eat.  When I sit down at home for lunch I am still chomping long after Mr BeautyBoo has finished his sandwich.

For my journal

1 oatcake = 1 point each I have 5
Crisps = 3 points
Fruit = zero points
Skyr or 0% natural greek yoghurt = 1 point
Total = 9 points
