WHAT I EAT IN A DAY | HEALTHY CALORIE COUNTING EDITION | EMILY NORRIS

Hi Guys, here's What I Eat In A Day to be healthy and hopefully lose a little weight! I haven't showed the kids meals in this one but happy to show more in the ...

Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. In today's video, I'm going to be showing you what I

eat in your average day, because I haven't done a video like this in ages and you guys always seem to really like them. I'm also trying to be super healthy at the moment. I'm trying to lose a few pounds, and I've also started running. I've been running now for seven weeks. I have made a whole video about how I got started. So if you're interested in that, I will link that down below as well. But I'm just trying to be careful. I've always been quite healthy, but in my 20s, I could eat or drink anything I wanted and stay the same. But now that I'm in my 30s, I really do feel that the weight just sticks to me and wants to hang on, which is really annoying. But I've had to change a few things. I am counting calories, which, I know some people get really angry when I say that. But for me, I just feel like it's something I have to do. I just use an app to log what I'm eating, and then I can also add in what I'm doing exercise-wise, and then I can just work out if I'm eating the right amount of calories to maintain or to lose weight. So yeah, so this is going to be a healthy one, and I hope you really enjoy it. If you do, give it a thumbs up, and I'll know to make more videos like this. And if you're new, I would love for you to subscribe. And let's go, start out with breakfast. Right, so for breakfast this morning, I am poaching two eggs. I just put some boiling water in a pan, put the two eggs, and then I put a lid on. And I literally have it on, on quite a low heat, for not long. Now, they look ready, but they're still soft. So that's what I want. And then I'm going to have one piece of toast. Then I'm going to add on some salt and pepper, and that is going to be my breakfast, along with a giant coffee. This is the one that we have. It is the Nescafe Azera. It's just instant, but we really like it. So yeah, so this is my breakfast. And eggs should be perfect. For lunch today, I'm trying to be healthy, so I'm having a cooked chicken breast with some rocket, which has balsamic, also some salt and pepper. These are baby plum tomatoes, and I've also got some cold beet root as well. I love beet root. And when I was little, I used to rub it all over my lips, and so I looked like I had lipstick on. So yeah, like them. And then, with my water intake, I have some water here with a lemon enhancer in it. This is one of those bottles that tells you how much you need to be drinking by when. So it's about 1:30 now, and I am really slacking. I needed to drink all of this by about 12:00. So I need to drink this. And I actually have

a bit of a headache, and I think it's because I've not really been drinking enough today. So I'm going to try and down that, and then fill it up again, because I do need to have a whole nother one today as well. So yes, this is my lunch. See? It's like a nice red tint. That's what I used to do when I was little. Matt is like, "What are you doing?" No? People want to see this? [inaudible 00:03:07]. It's also a beauty hack. Please don't subscribe. Right, so it's snack time now, so I'm going to have a caramel Snack Jack. I love these rice cakes. And they're just 51 calories per cake, but I'm going to bump that up with some almond butter. I love this little snack. It tastes like such a treat. And I also had a cup of tea, but I've literally just finished it. So, yeah. It's dinner time now, and tonight we're having a stir fry because it's so quick to make and also really healthy. So the kids are actually having leftovers, so they're not going to have this. Frasier would eat a stir fry. He loves soy sauce, and he would really like this. But the two little ones probably wouldn't eat this very well. So Matt and I are going to have this. All that I'm putting into it is stir fry veggies and a meat-free pieces. And we're going to have it with noodles as well. I have actually shared this recipe before in a video. So I'll link that down below or I'll write how to make it. Super quick. It takes like 15 minutes to make in total. So I'll just show you. I'm just frying up the stir fry veggies and also the little meat-free pieces. I really like them because you can cook them from frozen. They just take 12 minutes to cook. They're super healthy. And I really like the texture. And they also soak up whatever sauce you put in it. And I just think they're really yummy. So I'm going to do that. And then we're also having some Singapore style noodles. And you can fry these as well. So once this is all done, I'm going to fry these with them, and then all I'm going to do for the sauce is some soy sauce. And for my drink with dinner, I am still trying to get through my second one of these. Right, so for pudding, I'm having some fat-free Greek style honey yogurt. I'm having about 100 grams, which is about 90 calories, but it's so delicious. It's like ice cream. And then I'm having some blueberries and strawberries on top.

Right, so that was it for this video. I hope you enjoyed seeing what I ate today. And I hope it gives you a few ideas or a little bit of inspiration on other things that you could try as well. If you liked this video, give it a thumbs up and then I'll know to make more foodie videos like this. But thank you so much for watching, and I'll see you in my next one. Bye, guys.
