Food Diary #5

In todays Food Diary I want to share with you three days of eating mostly healthy. I once promised to share what I usually eat in a normal day or my healthy diet, instead I decided to show you three days. I did my best to remember and take pictures before devouring everything. 

Have a pink-tastic day!
Day 1
For breakfast I had two nectarines and a grapefruit, accompanied by a cup of green tea. (This cup holds 0,5l). Green tea is really good for your body : it helps your metabolism, it helps detoxify, reduces blood pressure, etc. Nectarines are rich in antioxidants, boost immune system, protect skin and help regulate the heart rate. Grapefruit fights infections, cleanses the blood and assists arthritis. 

 For lunch I had two sandwiches using whole wheat bread. One sandwich was with olive pate and the other with goat cheese and bresaola. As a snack I had parmesan chips. The parmesan chips have no carbohydrates, no sodium and no sugar. I also weighted a recommended portion, which is 12 grams.
 For dinner I had a salad with buffalo mozzarella , chicken, cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Buffalo mozzarella is a good protein source, high in calcium and Vitamin A. Tomatoes and cucumber help reduce cholesterol and help prevent cancer.
 Day 2
For breakfast I had 2 nectarines and 1,3 kg of watermelon. Watermelon reduces : high blood pressure,  heart disease risk and blood sugar levels. It also boosts immune system, cleanses the kidneys and strengthens the bones. 
 For lunch I had fish soup and grilled fish, sea-bass to be exact, with spinach. ( The side dish was actually spinach with potatoes, but I chose just the spinach.) For dinner I had some fish carpaccio which I forgot to take a picture of.

 Day 3
Breakfast was very healthy at a Cafe in Koper, which had a lot of smoothies, vegan cakes and ice creams. They also let you make your own smoothie. I chose : spinach, apple, kiwi and cherries. As the solid part of my meal  I had a raw vegan coconut cake and some cherries, which I bought from the farmers market. Spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals, maintains brain health, is anti-inflammatory and protects the skin. Cherries improve kidney and liver health, improve the immunity, are a good source of vitamin A and have anti-aging properties. Kiwi protects the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, manages blood pressure and removes the excess sodium found inside the body. Apples help reduce toxins and reactivate good gut bacteria. 
 For late lunch/ early dinner I had fish carpaccio, octopus and shrimp salad. Afterwards some grilled calamari.

 As a dessert I got ice cream on hot berries.
