It’s been a while since I’ve done a Weekly Eats post! In January I focused on quitting sugar, this month I am focusing on eating clean. Looking at these pictures, I’ve introduced a bit too much sugar back into my diet, but that’s something I can work on. My cheat meal this week was a turkey and avocado salad wrap with skin-on fries. OK, so the wrap wasn’t so bad but the fries and ketchup were. I had gone out after work and the place we went to did not allow food to be brought in. I could’ve ordered a salad, but I decided to schedule it as my cheat meal and enjoy the fries! What have you been eating lately?

  • I’m so happy I’ve seen this, I’ve been stuck at a certain weight for a while now and this has motivated me again to keep being healthy!
    Love From Sammie xx

    • Yay! So glad I could help! Definitely stick at it, we all plateau from time to time. Try out new recipes, try eating more calories and try switching up your workout routine. Your body can get used to what you’re doing and needs change xx

  • Whole Earth peanut butter is so good, I refuse to eat any others now haha! You eat so healthy! I love this idea for a post though, especially to keep track of what you’re eating :) xx

    • It’s really tasty! I also love Meridian Almond Butter and MyProtein Almond Butter, they’re so yummy. It’s great to look back at what I’ve eaten and assess it xx

  • I love your food posts, tempted to do one myself so i can see exactly what im eating. looks like you had a good week though! xx

    • Thank you! I love taking pictures of my food, I find it so much easier than counting calories or writing everything down. Definitely try it! xx

  • Yum!!!
