Good morning everybody! Welcome to what I eat in a day article. So haha, I’m gonna start the day with something that I absolutely hate doing every morning. So I’ve been doing this for the last week every day. I have been drinking this gut-healing drink. It tastes so gross guys, so disgusting.
So yeah, apparently it’s really good for the gut and helps with bloating and digestion. So I’m trying it out and I’ll let you guys know if it’s good. So today’s article is sponsored by Lifesum. Yay, As you guys know, I don’t really take up sponsored content and Lifesum is something I’ve been using for so many years now. I’m talking about over three years. So really happy about that because this is something I’ve been using. So in case, you guys don’t know Lifesum is a nutrition app. It helps you to track your macros.
It is extremely helpful when you’re trying to lose weight or you’re trying to gain muscles and I’ve used that for both of those purposes over the last three years. So anyway today I’m gonna share my macros and what I eat to lose some weight. You can download the app using the link down in the description box. Anyway, I’m going to start my day with a disgusting drink and then the rest of the day will be amazing. Alright? Let’s just, let’s just do this. Oh my god. Let’s just get this over with.
I’m gonna skull this and then drink that. Yes, it’s done! Now, I’m gonna make my breakfast. I’m gonna make my sweet potato porridge in the morning. And this is a purple sweet potato and my soup potato is 270 grams Now I’ll just pop that measurements in like so and I just cook this in water and also some almond milk. In the meantime, I’m making my almond butter. And the almond butter is ready. All I have here is just some salt and almonds. I’mMmm This stuff is so good! Mmm.
Now I’m gonna blend up the sweet potato with almond milk. I also make myself some jello. So these are high in protein. All these are pretty much block – oh my gosh it’s coming out so nicely This is my jelly. Oh my god! So cool. Look at my breakfast bowl. Looks so amazing. Oh my god. So all these are gelatin balls and they are just packed with protein. So if you want something different, something warm for breakfast then I recommend you try this sweet potato porridge bowl.
It’s really good, man. I love it. Time for lunch, so I made healthy nachos with thinly sliced potatoes. So I made two batches of potato chips, one dusted with potato starch to get more crisp for Adrian and one without. Just spray it with some oil and season with salt. It’s that simple. And now I’m gonna cook the minced beef and this is grass-fed and also extra lean. I’m gonna season with some ginger and lots of cumin and some chipotle powder and that’s just gonna spice it up a little bit like taco seasoning, some smoked paprika.
Yes, I love this. Now, I’m just gonna cook it. Tablespoon of tomato paste and also some salt. So here’s my potato and that’s my minced beef, that’s guacamole. So there’s just avocado with lime, pico de gallo just tomatoes with coriander and lime and salt. Salt as well. And also that’s some spinach and rockets. So I have some of the minced beef here because I don’t want it to sog up the potatoes, look at the potatoes, looks so frickin’ amazing now. I’m just gonna dress the vegetables on it. So I blanched the vegetables with some hot water. Some of the tomatoes. Oh, That looks amazing, and the guacamole Tadaa! All right, that’s the chips. Looks so good. Mm-hmm. What’s healthy about it? It’s like a regular nacho.
Hmm, Potatoes are really crunchy. Did you fry them all- no just in the oven. I actually prefer the one without the potato starch. It’s actually more crispy. Mm-hmm. I think all you need is a lot of guacamole. I’ll probably put in some chili. Yeah. Cholula sauce. Oooh…That too much? That’s a lot. Feels like a cheat meal. Feels unhealthy. Mm-hmm. But it is actually healthy. Can you make this every movie night? Mm-hmm Well, it takes a bit of effort to make the potato first I gotta slice it. Actually, that’s all you need to do, slice it, put it in the oven, spray some oil, that’s it.
Let’s top this up and get something on the TV and then I’m gonna head off to do my eyebrows get it like micro bladed Again a touch-up and I’ll be back for dinner. Bye, I just got back from my appointment and look at my brows. Oh my god, I love it so much. I like it a lot better this time around. So this is my touch-up and I like it better than the first time around because I like it a little bit straighter and this time is a little bit straighter But yeah, I have makeup on because I just think I look ridiculous with like big Shin Chan eyebrows without any makeup So anyway, I put on some makeup Yeah, I’m just gonna go through my macro with you guys because I haven’t done it.
I forgot about it My current macro is about 40% carbs 30% protein and 30% fat and again I’m not super strict about it if I am like 2 percent lower in carbs or 2%, 5% higher, 10% higher, it’s just there for guys so I try my best to hit the target, but if I go a little bit under or upper, I don’t care, to be honest. So for breakfast, I had about 20 grams of protein so I try to hit about like 20 grams each meal and For my carbs, I had 77 grams because it’s a lot of sweet potatoes in there But that’s okay because I’m gonna balance it out later at night. I’m not gonna have such a heavy carb dinner in fact 14 grams So that’s kind of on a point and before I forget one of my favorite features on Lifesum is their recipes.
They have tons of recipes, they all look so freakin’ good, I just want to try to I think that this is really convenient because there are calories included there are macros included in here So you don’t have to figure out yourself, you know Like you have times that you just don’t know what to eat and you want some inspiration You can just hop onto the app and just pick something and the favorite part for me Is that I can add my own recipes and attach my cute photos on it and that’s very important.
Okay, my cute photos. And yeah, I’ll just save it on an app so I don’t include all my recipes in here I just include some of them like the ones that I think a little bit more difficult So as you can see, my latest addition is my favorite protein jelly. Oh my god, so good. Okay, I have some with me right here. Got to show you guys. Oh my god The Hello Kitty one is so good I’m so disgusting but my favorite flavor is this purple one, tastes like berries, so good. Mmm Anyway, I got distracted there.
So I’m gonna have these protein jellies all my snacks Normally, I don’t have snacks throughout the day just because of my digestion issues. I don’t normally have snacks so I only have three meals a day, but today, I’m gonna treat myself with some protein jelly And yeah, this is so high in protein guys like for each serving you get mostly protein a few carbs and the real fat the cops come from the almond milk and also just the powders. O-i- -shi! This is like a little pig, oh so cute, I don’t want to eat it but you know what I can make it again It’s so satisfying because it is healthy, it’s delicious, It’s guilt-free. It makes me happy.
Okay. Wait, I’ve just included the potato beef nachos under the recipe section and Yeah, the macro is 42 grams of protein That’s quite good quite high 45 grams of carbs and 20 grams of fat. I think that’s pretty good And that’s about 500 calories. All right. I hope you find that helpful. So this is what I do to help me to maintain my weight right now and also have enough carbs protein and fat so that I’m consuming enough food and not too much or not too little So yeah, it is really really helpful if you want to lose some weight to just kind of track your progress if you don’t know how much you’re eating right now or What macronutrients are you can just chuck what you’re normally in down into the app and then the app is gonna spit out the number like this is you know, like 1,500 calories 50% carbs 30% protein or 20% fat and you can just adjust it based on how you feel Like if you feel like yeah feeling very tired with lower carbs, then maybe you can increase carb and you know Just adjust it based on how you feel.
You don’t have to follow someone else’s Macronutrients you adjust it based on how you feel not everyone eats the same amount of food and feels the same way I hope that makes sense And also if you’re taller or bigger, obviously, you’re gonna consume more calories, so I don’t follow my calories guys And this is just a rough guide for me as well anyways I’m gonna get some work done because I’m not so quick to do and then I’m going to have dinner And I’m so freaking excited about that because that’s one of my favorite dishes. So yeah, I’ll be back All right guys for my dinner. I’m gonna make zucchini and carrot fries.
So what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna shred carrot into like You know pieces like this and then I’ll chop it up into a rice length Looks like long grain rice And now I’m gonna cook all the vegetables I’m gonna cook them separately because of the colors You can just cook it on a pan by itself or you can add a little bit of oil. I’m gonna make oyakodon which is like a Japanese chicken 8 dish. So here’s our chicken thigh. I got about 450 grams here. That’s about 1 pound. So instead of using dashi stock, which normally has glucose in it unless if you make it yourself, I’m just gonna use my bone broth I’m also gonna chuck in some capsicum lots of ginger, salt, pepper, Tamari sauce. Normally I add some cooking sake as well I ran out so I’m not gonna add today. So oyakodon is usually quite sweet. So I’m gonna add some stevia(?) and now I’m gonna cook it.
So I’ve added some water and oh my god the broth is so rich And now I’m gonna add some eggs. So here’s the final dish. That’s the carrots That’s the zucchini and this is the eggy chicken. Wow Oh my god, looks so good. I’m gonna add a little bit of seaweed and sesame seasoning. It’s finally done. First bite. So this is kind of like a healthy oyakodon, it’s not gonna taste exactly the same but it is good enough I reckon it is really good so Yeah I’m gonna enjoy this over a TV show and I’ll be back So I’ve eaten about a thousand four hundred calories today, which is a little bit more than what’s recommended for me But in terms of my macro breakdown it is like on point so that’s really good didn’t really exercise today I just went for a walk this morning.
Yeah, I’m gonna exercise tomorrow. I normally take about two to three days off like every week. I don’t really want to stress out my body too much So I normally take about two or three days off.
