Today I decided to have a salad for lunch. The recipe is as follows:

  • soybeans
  • peeled and cooked prawns
  • grated yellow carrot
  • iceberg lettuce
  • romaine lettuce
  • radicchio
  • a tablespoon of tzatziki

It’s colourful and delicious.

Update: I noticed that where I didn’t have my afternoon shake, I felt rather sluggish this evening.


Meal routine

Here’s my shake routine:

Morning shake

  • Oatmeal 20-30 grammes
  • Herbalife Formula 1 Vanilla¬†or strawberry (depending on my mood) 1-1.5 scoops
  • 2 tablespoons of low-fat yoghurt
  • A¬†piece of fruit (usually a banana)
  • Soy milk. I keep adding until I get the consistency I like. I prefer to have my shake kind of thick in the morning.

Morning snack

  • Usually a piece of fruit or handful of almonds


  • Depends on what I’m doing. If I’ve got time for it I make a sandwich with salad and cheese and have yoghurt for desert.
  • If I don’t have a lot of time I drink a shake.

Mid afternoon

  • I tend to eat a healthy snack. I search online for recipes.


  • Dinner but I try to make sure that 50 % of my plate is vegetables. 25% carbs and 25% protein. I’ll eat yoghurt or quark for desert.


  • The night before I usually make up the Herbalife lemon tea. I do one spoonful of it to 1 litre of water and add two capfuls of Aloe Vera Mango as well. That usually lasts me all morning and keeps my energy levels up.
  • In the afternoon I make up another litre of water with Aloe Vera Mango. This lasts me until the evening.
  • The rest of the evening I drink plain water. Some days 2 litres is enough for me other days I end up drinking 2.5-3 litres of water.


  • I’ve just started on FitStar Premium and I do a session I do the daily dose sessions since they are easiest to fit into my day and don’t take long.

Cucumber experiment

This afternoon wanted to try a more savoury shake so I looked in my fridge and spotted some cucumber. This was the result:

  • Half a cucumber
  • Herbalife lemon tea
  • A dash of soy milk
  • A scoop of Herbalife Formula 1 vanilla protein powder

I blitzed it in my Magic Bullet and ended up with this. It was a hot day and it felt really refreshing. I was surprised how tastey it was.
