Day 4 -7th July 2016
Today my meals were adventurous to start of with and ended with a boring meal. I’m used to having more food to work with, though this is the challenge I have set out to do. I will succeed, I have too. Feeling great that I haven’t spent much money this week.

Meal 4 – tofo, greens and brown rice
1/4 Apple grated, 1/4 roughly chopped

Pinch of cinnamon
I would normally add 1 tbsp of rice malt but it’s not on my challenge this week.
1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon, can blend if you prefer.
3. Top with 10g blueberries. Place into muffin tray.

I made this last night and had cold but you can eat warm if you wish. Nice with yogurt too.
Was nice today to not train, I just took my dog for a walk with a friend.
Day 5 – 8th July 2016
Glad it’s the last day of eating limited foods as I really haven’t got that much left. Today I went on a picnic with friends and their babies. I ate before I went and straight away when k got home. Was fine. Side tracted myself with the cute babes!

Yes I ate this all to myself as I was #hangry. This tops all meals this week! My favourite.
Cannot wait to have a coffee tomorrow.
On Saturday with my coffee in hand! #happy
How I felt about the challenge!
To be honest, I thought it was pretty easy to do, I think sometimes we are very spoilt for choice. It made me plan all my meals, be more creative, I minimised wastage and enjoyed and appreciated my food a bit more.
It was a nice break from coffee too. It made me more aware of the money I was spending too.
I did get a little hungry sometimes on the challenge,but I think that came down to laziness more than anything and I just needed to create something, rather than just snacking on raw treats, quest bars or protein smoothies.
I have decided to do it again this week, but I will be able to use any left overs from last week.
I can also have 1 coffee mid week and am allowed protein powder after my weights sessions.
Anything is possible if we put our minds to it.

It came to 46.50 but I also went and spend $6 at the fruit barn. Total 52.50. A little over but still very close to my budget! Won’t be blogging about this weeks journey but I will share recipes on @aliceinhealthyland (Instagram account).
Thanks again for following my journey.
