2018: A Year In Food
In 2018, my gym coach assigned me to keep a food blog so he could track my meals. Through developing healthy eating habits to satisfy all of my nutritional needs and a rigorous exercise programme, I lost the 21 kg between January-August 2018 I'd gained on anti-depressants.
I wanted it to be somewhere more private rather than being shoved down people's throats (literally) through Instagram/WhatsApp. Hence I've posted my culinary creations here.
Being vegetarian and/or vegan always presents a challenge in terms of hitting the protein target so this was particularly the most interesting challenge for me.
I made a conscious decision to stop food blogging in 2019 (due to time restraints), but it's useful to have a year's diet documented as a reference and a source of inspiration!
Batch cook done ✅ inspired by a deliciously ella recipe, this 'Thai' coconut 🌴 and chickpea curry really packs a punch 🤛! 2 white onions and 2 aubergines 🍆 chopped and fried. 2 tins chickpeas (undrained). Added 0.5 jar Sainsbury's Red Thai curry paste, 200ml koko milk, 40ml Tamari soy sauce and finished with a dusting of ginger, seasoned to taste. 611kcal in total; it'll hopefully last 3 meals, so approx 200kcal per meal. 🤞
