Food

 

Hello My Sweets :),

I am back with the third edition of Food Diary Wednesday.  Today I had a little more fun with my food and I finished my meals quite early, at 5:30 pm ( as you know I always follow intermittent fasting way of eating ), it just works for me and I love it.

Here is what I munched on today:

Breakfast

 

Food

 

Starbucks :) Oink Oink.  I had grande, soy ( the only in time I drink soy is when I go to starbucks, and their soy milk is organic ), green tea latte, no classic ( unsweetened ), with 1 shot of espresso ( normally I get too ).

I don’t always get hungry in the morning and most of the time I drink regular black coffee, so it takes me a couple of hours to get my self swinging and have some breakfast ( unless we film that day, then I eat early ).

 

Lunch 

 

Food

 

For lunch I had buckwheat ( it was green before I boiled it ), with 2 table spoons of coconut oil, and scrambled eggs ( 2 eggs ).

 

2nd Lunch ( oink oink :P )

 

Food

 

I had more scrambled eggs ( 2 ), with basmati rice and orange lentils (  I had it made from the previous day ). I also had fresh greens spinach, arugula, baby kale.

 

Snack 

 

Food

 

As a snack I had 2 organic apples, I can’t seem to get full with just one apple, these ones are not very big so 2 was perfect for me.

 

Dinner

 

Food

 

For dinner I had fresh organic greens again ( arugula, spinach, baby kale ) and oven roasted chicken ( I didn’t take off the skin ).  Since I am not trying to lose weight I allow my self some freedom with my nutrition and by freedom I mean, I love chicken skin and occasional chocolate.

That was my humble day of eating :), tomorrow we are filming a new upper body workout for you guys, it’s gonna be fun as always!

 

Hugs,

Tati

    this is definitely not oink oink!!! do you want feedback or are you just posting these ones for fun?

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      Ha Ha, I am posting these cause Tee gave me this idea. People always ask me what I eat on a daily basis so I decided to start sharing every Wednesday.

      • tee_w

        I hope you don’t get paranoid about what you eat! LOL ‘Cause I was wondering where your chocolate was? You said you’d been eating it lately!LOL I’m eating Chocolate with Red Chili right now!

        • tee_w

          OMG I just ate the whole bar! Oopsy ha ha. That was about 500 cal! LOL

          • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

            I usually eat my chocolate on Sat and Sundays, I get one of those chocolate covered raisins and I usually eat the whole bag, I don’t even want to think about the calories of that thing, cause that will give me some real paranoia LOL

            On Mondays I love to go to a European bakery and eat of of their hand made desserts, and I try to bee good the rest of the week.

  • http://delightfultastebuds.com/ Jos

    Yum! I love chicken skins too, especially when they are fresh out the oven and crispy….Yummm!! :D

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      I know! The fresh ones are the best!

    • tee_w

      The skin of the chicken is the best part! Same with a turkey! Jos have you ever eaten duck, was thinking about trying it?

      • http://delightfultastebuds.com/ Jos

        I’ve tried duck..peking duck to be exact! But I’ve never tried cooked duck myself..I’ve been wanting to do it though…roasting duck leg to start..we’ll see..maybe this weekend I’ll get some duck legs :D

  • tee_w

    OK the more I see others people’s food, the more I think I am a total pig! Everybody eats so little! Crazy. My plates show no white! LOL

    • tee_w

      I just finished my dinner, I ate 2cups of (grassfed) groundbeef with spices, 1 cup green beans with 1tbsp butter, 1 cup homemade bone broth, 1/2 cup cucumbers, and almost 1/2 cup of green olives and I’m working on a hunk of dark chocolate now!

      For lunch earlier I had 3 eggs, 1/2 a smokie(grassfed beef again), several slices of bacon and a whole bunch of kale and spinach wilted down in there. All cooked in the same pan together

      Breakfast was bulletproof coffee with both butter and coconut cream in there! (Plus cinnamon &cocoa)

      When I go home from work I’ll probably have a snack, ’cause all this wasn’t enough food today, I wasn’t prepared good enough today. Not that I don’t always have a snack but I’m hungry today, it’s a little less than I normally eat.

      PS no I don’t measure out my food, just dinner at work is in containers so I can look at them and see how much is there!

      • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

        Wow I want to eat at your house! I usually go to all you can eat buffet on Mondays and I really eat all I can :). It’s funny you say I don’t eat a lot, last time I made my ” What I eat daily video “, all of my Russian subscribers on youtube were like OMG you eat way too much, and some were like OMG you’re such a pic ( but those were just some people who were just passing by and saw my video ). Now I don’t feel so bad, cause I thought I ate too much :)

        • tee_w

          You can come & eat at my house anytime! LOL It’s just a bit of a drive! I am currently doing a bit of the intermittant fasting like you. But mine starts much later at night and lasts not quite as long as you, but then I have (weekdays) only two meals now and they are 6 hours apart. But I do usually eat a snack when I get home from work. Can’t imagine how you eat your dinner so early then stay up so late without eating!

          Don’t worry about what people think of your eating, I remember people kept asking zuzana what she ate and for her to post recipes and then when she did they were telling her she wasn’t right or she shouldn’t eat that! Obviously what she ate worked for her, not everybody can or should eat the same things, or obviously the same amount! I’m just a small fry but I can outeat a lot of people! And managed to lose 30 lbs doing it! I would guess that I average 2000 – 2400 calories most days, probably 50% of my calories come from healthy fat and I have dropped weight and feel better and better every day.

          I’ve thought of posting pictures of what I eat on my facebook page but am a little nervous about what people might say! LOL plus I don’t know how, and I only have like 5 friends! Ha ha ha

          • http://focusandfeelfreetofly.blogspot.com/ masage

            If you’re paleo, you could also give me some real kick by posting your food choices and quantities. ;) I’d really appreciate it. I’m the first to vote PRO! :)

          • tee_w

            I’ve started posting just for you masage, my friend! :)

        • steffi_dk

          But now, we feel so bad, cause we think we eat too much LOL…but I guess, we actually do :D

      • http://www.facebook.com/kgilliam78 Kristen Gilliam

        Hey tee, do you really put butter in your coffee, that’s really interesting what started that, if you don’t mind me asking? By the way, I eat way more than what Tati posted don’t feel like a pig, everyone’s different. I ate 5 meals today. Although I will admit I am very conscious of Saturated fats…I tend to eat fairly lean through-out the day and then reward myself with dessert in the evening because I am a Pastry Chef and LOVE my sweets. I do NOT eat them at work because I believe it will create a bit of a slippery slope.

        • tee_w

          Yes I do put butter in my coffee! Lol grassfed if you can find it, I use organic because I can’t find any grassfed specifically, unsalted too, that would be important! Um I think I heard about bulletproof coffee on a podcast. A paleo one, maybe the paleo solution? They were talking about intermittant fasting and that you could have some fat during that time to help with any hunger and mentioned doing this to your coffee. I have been wanting to work out in the morning without eating and having to digest & or trying not to puke! So I tried it and I can get through my workout without feeling weak or shakey like if I just didn’t eat. I’ll try to find the link on how to make it, you have to blend it. its the only way I can drink coffee without sugar.

        • tee_w

          Here’s the link for a how to video on bulletproof coffee. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XiJeZYY2wiA

          • Mary Lou

            Here’s the link to the Bulletproof Exec’s website: http://www.bulletproofexec.com/how-to-make-your-coffee-bulletproof-and-your-morning-too/

            I am using the IF with this too (just ordered some MCT oil but been using coconut oil) and I am not hungry until lunch time. I don’t eat after 6pm, have my coffee by 7am, get the kids ready and workout without feeling hungry, weak or jittery. It’s fantastic! Still trying to figure out weather the recovery shake actually breaks the fast…

      • sedindriuke

        oh Tee_W i understand you..i eat like a pig compared with Tati as well.. I am doing Whole30 and really my food plate seems to be stuffed :D Not with meat, mostly with veggies, and meat (eggs,fish,..) beasides. That is good that i do not use any sugars… sometimes just fall from the vagon with fruits as tangerines/clementines are on season before Xmas (yeah yeah.. emotional eating more not a season :D)… and that is not good to eat so much them at nights :D

        • tee_w

          Good luck on your whole 30! I did one back in sept

          • sedindriuke

            Thanks girl. It is really easy, just i wanna some cheese (it lives in my freezer as I bought it in Italy one month ago, and when came back to the UK i started dairy grain free so im still mouth wathering while looking at parmesan :D) also i did it not for loose weight, i have nothing to lose, but to see, to try, to challenge myself, and to get more iron into my blood due to more red meet :)

      • http://www.lovingfit.com/ Lvette_1

        Your dinner is reasonable. Interesting additions to your coffee…never heard of this combo.

        • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

          Ohh yeah every time I go to new sturbucks everyone is always like OMG what an interesting combo, that is the only one I ever order, for years and years now :), love it

      • wolfblood

        Thanks for sharing tee_w, that is so soothing for me! When I look at the food diaries I know exactly what I should change, but I am just not into restrictive eating. I think it’s so close to an eating disorder and I feel often surrounded by women who think about food calories and meal sizes all the time, I’m just too sick of it and kind of like my approach to love to eat healthy yet not reconsider it over and over and over again..

    • http://focusandfeelfreetofly.blogspot.com/ masage

      I totally agree with you on this one, Tee, I eat like a pig compared to Tati! :) Oooohh, these food diaries of hers make me think to redo my eating habits. And I intend to just after the festive season. ;)

    • steffi_dk

      I´m glad, you say that. Those tiny portions would leave me starving!!

    • Leverlock_25

      I hear you, Tee. I’m big on volume and quality foods.
      I try to get as much as i can get, for as little as i can get.

      Here’s a pic of one of my “smaller” meals (Just over 300 cal)

      • sedindriuke

        i do not see any problem if you cannot see the colour of place as it is covered by veggies :) mine breakfast is always huge..but because of much veggies:cabbage, cucumber, tomato, avocado and normal kcal from eggs, meat,.. :)) so really no worries i think.

      • Maria

        Not 100% sure but I think that Teaopia also sells matcha powder.. been thinking about adding it to my vanilla shakes

        • Leverlock_25

          Yup they do! But you will def overpay for it. Bubble tea & health food shops, too. Hell, even Walmart!

  • http://www.facebook.com/kgilliam78 Kristen Gilliam

    Hey Tati,

    I never thought of adding a shot of espresso to the green tea latte, I just might have to give it a try! I’ve never had cooked buckwheat, although I have had it in the green/raw form in an organic dried fruit and nut mix. How long do you need to cook it for before it’s ready to eat?

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      I first soak the buckwheat for several hours then I cook it for about 7 minutes, sometimes 5, you have to be careful not to overcook it.

  • Katerina Gjorgievska

    Hi guys, I love reading about your eating habits and your daily nutrition. Here is mine :)

    I recently changed my eating habits, so now instead of eating a late dinner I eat an early breakfast that consists mainly of oat soaked in water, that I had prepared in the evening.

    On week days, I eat my breakfast before I go to work, at about 7 am. While I am at work I drink one cup of Turkish coffee and one cup of green tea and I eat a salad and light lunch (usually some beans, buckwheat) that I prepare at home the day before. I also eat an apple or some other seasonal fruit and some raw almonds and dates.

    I workout right after work. I usually walk home, which takes me about 30 minutes (or more now, because it is -10 degrees Celsius here!).

    After my workout I eat lunch. I always include fresh vegetables and I try to eat more protein (meat, tuna or beans). I drink another cup of green or black tea – earl gray with a little bit milk in it. I also eat some peanuts and roasted chickpeas. I stop eating at 7:30 pm. I try not to drink water after that as well. I go out or to my boyfriend’s house every night and I usually take a short walk if it is not too cold like it is now :( I go to bed at about midnight or an hour later.

    During weekends I eat almost the same. I eat my breakfast later in the day because I sleep longer. I don’t have as many snacks because I don’t workout during weekends. I stay active thought, and I try to walk a lot :) I try not to eat after 7:30 pm as well, but I will have to make exceptions on holidays or maybe a party.

    As you can see, I eat lot as well :) but I try to eat clean (no processed food, as little white sugar and white bread as possible, avoid fried food or too salty food).

    I used to bee skinnier, but I like the way I look now. My skin looks better and my hair as well, I feel much stronger and much more confident. I am 26 years old and I have never felt fitter, not even as a teenager :)

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      Wow you eat so healthy, I usually eat more sugar on the weekend, way more. But I do go for long walks like 2 hours sometimes.

      • Katerina Gjorgievska

        After doing no sugar challenges, avoiding white sugar got easier. Hormones can be nasty though, and when they kick in I just can’t help it. Still, thanks to your blog and other similar blogs I am now more aware and even if I do eat sweets they are usually home-made, in small portions and don’t contain trans fat. The greatest part about not eating white sugar or sweeteners is that fruit tastes so much sweater now ;)

  • Lili Suke

    HI Tati. I also find you eat so small :) at least compared to me :)) I have more snacks during the day, nuts and fruit. My lunch is a little smaller, my dinner is almost the same, but I have always breakfast :) wow…I would be starving :)) I have to re-think my eating now..My problem is to not to eat 5-6hours before bed, because I get home from work quite late and I still have to prepare some food and it never ends up being 5-6hours before bed time :( I have to work on this and bring my last food to work and try to survive until the next day :))) I am sure I will be very hungry at the beginning…thank you Tati

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      It is hard in the beginning not to eat 5-6 hours before bed, but I am used to it now. I even go about 8 hours before I go to bed, that way I go to sleep on a fasted state. During the day is when I like to eat, at night I feel heavy and can’t sleep good If I eat late.

      • Lili Suke

        Thank you Tati. 8hours..wow :) I will try also the intermittent fasting. I read many good things about it :) Although they recommended 14h fasting and 10 hours eating for women .. not sure, but it seems a little easier for the beginning :) Yesterday, I did my first day :D Thank you, big hug Lili

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mily-Miguel/592457099 Mily Miguel

    I thought you ate more :P . Now I have an idea, thanks. This post is awesome!

  • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

    I always thought I eat a lot)) I make up for it on the weekends, during the week I eat much less. On the weekends I usually go out to all you can eat buffet, and I allow my self some desserts 2 or 3.

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

    hahahaha…love the “second lunch” makes you sound like a hobbit. I’m sitting here eating my lunch which is 1/2 cup organic skim milk unflavored yogurt with organic vanilla extract and chia seeds…and my greens for today, brown mushrooms, green pepper, tomato, and cucumber. My afternoon snack is a mandarin orange and a grapefruit. Breakie was a protein shake with a banana and other goodies like bran and brewers yeast……dinner I won’t know until I get home….hubby is the head chef in the house during the work week

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      OMG your husband cooks – Lucky YOU!!!

  • Tic

    You are eating so little! (: And your fasting method sounds little bit weird too. I couldn’t imagine to do that, even though sometimes I don’t eat in the late evening if I don’t feel hungry. By the way thanks to you I have changed my eating habits a little bit. Nowadays i eat more vegetables and also changed eggs to organic eggs (and use more organic products than before). And also I decided to give a try for maca powder, hope it keep my pms in control. :)

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      I am glad I could help :)

      My fasting is intermittent fasting, it’s a method with 16 hour of fasting 8 hours of eating, when I was younger I ate similarly to this except I didn’t eat before bed time 6-7 hours.

  • Maria

    The green tea latte is my favourite treat and pretty much the only treat I get from Starbucks (other than a black blond roast)…Order it unsweetened with soy milk as well…love that matcha green tea. I should try it with the shot of espresso, sounds interesting :)
