My diet starts Monday ( yes I know i said this 5 Monday’s ago!! 🤣)
Is this a healthy meal plan for a day
Breakfast - cheese omelette
Lunch - tuna pasta
Dinner - chicken, rice and veg
With fruit and a alpen bar for snacks?
People have such radically different ideas of what counts for healthy now so I suspect you might get spectacularly different answers to this.
From my perspective, your fruit and veg count seems a bit limp. When you say veg with dinner and fruit for a snack, do you mean one portion of each? Do you have any veg you haven't mentioned in your tuna pasta? Or anywhere else through the day?
Agree with pp - It’s certainly not unhealthy but probably a bit low on veg. Also what you describe is a bit vague if you’re dieting to lose weight - how good an omelette is for weightloss depends a bit how much cheese you’re putting in there or if your frying it in a load of oil, same with tuna pasta (tuna pasta per se is great - tuna pasta which includes four tbsp of mayo not so good maybe...)
Portion size factors just as much, if not more, than what you're eating. Are you weighing your food or measuring portions to keep it consistent?
