My Eating Plan

My Eating Plan 03This week marks the start of eating normally again.  I’m not going to say “healthier” or “better” because really, this is what I should be eating normally.

I have Coeliac Disease so am not allowed to eat gluten foods, which pretty much rules out a lot of things.  And I like to stay away from processed foods because it makes it easier to know if it’s gluten-free or not.

ALSO – what works for me is routine.  I don’t mind eating the same thing every day, with a wee variation, as it just makes it easier for me.  So, essentially, this is what I eat every day:


Water first thing in the morning after I get up
Smoothie with Almond Milk, Kale, 1 Banana, 1 Apple, 1 Kiwi Fruit, 1 TBSP LSA Mix, 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt
2 Eggs (boiled)

4 x Corn Thins with Cottage Cheese

1/3 cup of rice
1 Tin of Tuna or Salmon / or fresh chicken / any fresh meat
1 cup of salad of your choice (usually cucumber, capsicum, tomatoes, avocado)
2 Dates (separate from the above, like a bit of a dessert)

4 x Corn Thins with Cottage Cheese
1 Apple (or banana) and a handful of Almonds

Same as lunch, minus the rice
If, as a family, we have any type of meat for dinner, I usually incorporate that into my meal too.
If I need something sweet, I have a couple of dates as a dessert treat

So that’s it.  Plus, the goal of drinking a crap load of water each day is also on the list.

For me, keeping it as unprocessed as possible is my goal.  Lots of fresh fruit and veges.  And carbs.  If I don’t have rice, then I’ll cook kumara or pumpkin.  I’ve just gotten into the habit of eating rice.

If I eat like the above, having a treat every now and then isn’t such a crime.

What works for you?  Let me know!

I’m gluten free as well, and try to avoid process foods as much as I can, but I prefer to have a bit more variety otherwise I get bored. Breakfast usually involves eggs, maybe a smoothie. Lunch is leftovers from dinner or meat and salad (sometimes in sandwich form – Vogels GF DF bread is pretty good, although expensive). Dinner is … last night was steak and veg, tonight will be pork belly and veg – I’m gonna get fancy haha. Meat + veg (or salad) is so easy to throw together. Sometimes I make vegetarian meals, favourites include a self crusting frittata and vege lasagne (made with pumpkin or zucchini instead of pasta sheets). If I’m feeling lazy, my go to is a good omelette.

Don’t you get bored?! There are so many naturally occurring GF and sugar free snacks. Rice crackers, plain potato chips, doritos plain are just corn oil and salt – with smashed up avocado and feta yuuum my fav arvo tea. Rice bubble cakes made with coconut oil rice bubbles cocoa powder (no added crap kind) and some honey are perfect for kids too. Carrot and capsicum hummus – make your own in nutri bullet. Nut butter dark chocolate cups – melt dark chocolate Whittaker is GF and put a little in muffin tin and then some pure nut butter – make own in nutri bullet then banana piece then me chic and freeze. Dark chocolate covered cranberries are my favorite treat. I could go oon and on. I have a pinterest page full of ideas if you want me to message it too you on HMHC? Xxx


I love that you call it an eating plan because that’s exactly what it should be. Planning, being organised and prepared is half the battle when it comes to eating well and doing what we know we should. You can do this!


Excellent! I’m slowly getting over the need for variety. It makes sticking to a plan when you’re busy or stressed that much easier because you don’t need to think about it. My husband is a robot when it comes to eating and eats the same thing for breakfast and lunch everyday. I’ve resisted this idea for years but he’s the skinny one and I’m ever-growing so there might be something in it after all!
