What I ate Wednesday

New thing! I’m going to tell you about what I actually ate on a Wednesday! So exciting 🙂

So today I needed a quick lunch, with stuff that I had in my cupboard, So I welcome the Salmon Avo rice cakes!

Here’s the list:

3 Rice crackers $0.30 ($1.80 for about 18)
1 can Salmon in Olive oil (to reduce the fat in this one, choose springwater instead) $2.00
4 Cherry tomatoes $0.40 (about 50g, $2 for 250g)
2 Basil Leaves (Free from herb garden)
1/2 an avocado $1.50 ($3.00 each)
A small bunch of parsley (Free from herb garden)

Total cost: $4.20

I mixed everything into a bowl a spread it on the rice crackers.

And the nutritional lowdown:

So lets have a look at what is actually in this lunchtime meal:
It has a relatively large amount of fat, and specifically saturated fat. I probably could have used 1/4 of an avo, and put in some grated carrot or cucumber. It also has quite a bit of Sodium, The AU Nutrient reference values say we should have between 480 and 920 mg of sodium per day, And ive already got 453mg in my lunch!

For next time:

  • Less avo
  • Choose a tuna or Salmon in brine or water and drain
  • Use more veggies such as grated carrot, zucchini, cucumber slices, chopped fresh spinach.
