I thought it would be fun to write down what you ate today - to give others ideas of a daily routine.

Breakfast - Soy milk, banana smoothie, with vanilla soygurt, ice, flaxseed oil, vanilla essence.

Lunch - sushi takeaway - with salmon and edamame (soy beans)

Snack - handful of nuts and dried fruits (eg macadamia, almond, raw cashew, apricot, sultanas)

Dinner - roast vegetables (I spray with olive oil spray and cook at 170degrees Celsius) on a bed of quinoa with a can of white beans thrown over the top, dressing olive oil, lemon and wholegrain mustard dressing. Can eat hot or cold, I prefer cold, so it's like a salad.

Sweet snack - Sesame Snap (crunchy sweet biscuit)

What did you eat today?

Great idea Ms F!

For me, breakfast was muesli (from the recipe section) with apple juice over it.

Lunch, a salad sandwich with hummus. Carrots and cherry tomatoes to nibble on.

Dinner - vegan lasagne (recipe from Good Chef, Bad Chef - very nice and here's the link:

What a great idea!

Breakfast: 60g special K with soy milk (I'm struggling with my iron levels and special K is iron-fortified)

Morning snack: apple

Lunch: salad - steamed broccoli, beans, and asparagus, with red onion, cherry tomatoes, red capsicum, cucumber, brown rice with a homemade balsamic vinegar dressing (balsamic vinegar, EVOO, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard)

Afternoon snack: prunes and handful of raw cashews

Dinner: pumpkin risotto with a green salad

And drink at least 2L water per day, which helps me stop snacking so much.
