Almost no exercise, but the food I consumed so far has been great 🙂
breakfast: 1 hard-boiled egg, one cup of coffee with cream and brown sugar. It is amazing that although I keep going to the same cafe, I have no difficulty not ordering bagels anymore. Yesterday the staff at the cafe had asked me whether I would also get bagels as usual 🙂 I said I was limiting carbs and he understood it. He even said “sorry, I did not mean to remind you them!!”. How nice of this young gentleman 🙂
lunch: soup with 3 slices of bread
dinner: soft meatball, leek, and carrot meal; I am in favor of not cooking veggies a lot and make them mushy. I think cooking breaks their fiber and fiber is what we all need. So I cooked first the meatballs and then added carrot and the leek. I turned off the stove before the leek lost its crispy feel.
late-night snack (added later): 1 big apple (delicious 🙂 ) and 1 tall glass of milk
exercise: 10 min in the morning.
supplements: iron supplement before the lunch and calcium+VitD supplement after dinner.
My pharmacists told me that iron supplementation could cause constipation; one remedy is to take it with food/drinks that contain vitamin C, such as orange or apple juice. Apparently, vitamin C helps iron to be absorbed by the body. I thought I would share in case you also are recommended to take iron supplements.
