Just like every day, i started my day with two glasses of water on an empty stomach then had my cup of coffee (1 tsp of Nescafe, 3 tsp of fat free coffee mate, 2 tsp of sugar) followed by 30g of brown Arabic bread and a spread of zaatar w zeit (1/2 tsp of oil-water) toasted and served with a teaspoon of labneh light, tomatoes and cucumbers!
I had for lunch a green salad made of lettuce leaves with a tsp of olive oil and lemon juice then had 120g of grilled salmon filet! Salmon is among the top ten foods that must have a place in your diet! It’s a great source of excellent quality protein and is very rich in Omega-3 that lowers heart disease risk, helps arthritis, and may possibly help with memory loss and Alzheimer’s and might reduce depression!
As an afternoon snack i had a small sized frozen yogurt with blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and flakes …
And for dinner as i was craving for something sweet i decided to have three rice cakes with a teaspoon of peanut butter and two teaspoons of strawberry jam spread evenly!
