Day 10 of 10 a day

The last day of this ridiculous challenge!

I'm joking but of course this has been a challenging thing.  Eating 10 different fruits and vegetables a day for 10 days in the quantities recommended by "official guidance" has been a challenge for my body, my mind and my wallet.  So I would be lying if I said I wasn't happy to be on the last day.

Still one last day to go and if you've lasted with me this far kind readers, thank you!


I had a breakfast bowl of yogurt, grapes, blueberries and raspberries with walnuts and honey.  3 of my 10 a day already.


I needed refuelling after a long run so had an apple and 30g of raisins.


I was out and about today and had a very naughty and fruit and vegetable free hotdog.  The joy was though that I also popped into a supermarket and they had a range of 80g packs of fruit.  I had some pineapple sticks, some melon sticks and some watermelon sticks meaning I still managed 3 portions.


Naughtily I then had a cake and also some biltong.  Don't judge me!  It was a food filled day!


I finished the day with some Teriyaki Salmon with a salad.  Although this salad contained pepper, cucumber and sugar snap peas, it was only 80g in total making one portion.  I followed it up though with a portion of strawberries and cream.

So did I manage it on my last day?  Yes again although unlike other days, I was really hungry all day, possibly due to the exercise or maybe because my diet was so fruit heavy.

Breakfast - 3 portions
Snack - 2 portions
Lunch - 3 portions
Snack - 0 portions
Dinner - 2 portions
Total - 10 portions (9 fruit and 1 vegetable).  

I hope you will join me in my journey, I will keep you posted by the day on how it's going and put links below so you can read more about my experience:
