This is yesterdays diary which I did not get round to putting up, I probably will not do one today as it is turning out to be very similar food wise.
The snack of the day was the Nakd choc orange bar; I love these and would eat them every day. They are made up of raw nuts, fruit and are free from all artificial nasties like gluten and are wheat & dairy free too. Really good for you but also great if you need that chocolate hit and does satisfy the craving. I have tried the other flavours such as the pecan one but I did not like it as much and tend to stick to the choc orange one. Definitely a good substitute for a chocolate bar, however my husband does not seem to think so as he says they are vile. OK so its not the same as a Mars bar, if you don’t like dried fruit then I would avoid!

Thoughts of the day
I am really struggling to eat my 5 a day, not because I do not want to but I just forget! Any suggestions? I think I need to get the smoothie maker out.
Is carbonated water a bad idea? I am a bit addicted to fizzy drinks, at least it’s better than coke?
