Sorry I didn’t get this finished by last week’s What I ate Wednesday – it was a busy week after a weekend away.
But here, as promised, you have my eats from our full day at Fitness Fiesta.
Hello, and welcome to Wednesday.
It was my Nanny’s birthday last weekend, so I thought it would be a great day to do a WIAW 🙂
We booked a river boat trip, Nanny, Mum, my sister, brother, and Nanny’s sister took a ride from Totnes to Dartmouth, and we went out for a meal in the evening. You can read more about my weekend with pictures on my MIMM post.
Whoop whoop – It’s What I ate Wednesday. Which means we all get to
indulge our nosey sides seek inspiration from all the yummy food out there.
I guess it should be Fall into good habits – yep, squash/pumpkins are in daily rotation so I guess it is now autumn (hey, I’m British).
Did I have any good habits? I hope so! I recorded this on Monday, I had a course at work, so things were a bit different (well, I still took my own lunchbox – lunch wasn’t provided). So here you have it:
Hi all! Happy hump day!
Knowing that I was in London, visiting foodie places last week, you would think I would have done my WIAW then, but alas, I was not that organised, and I was too busy enjoying my food to photograph it (well, some of it anyway). So, here are my eats from Friday – my staycation at home 🙂
Hello – It’s Wednesday.
Though I have to say that the long weekend has thrown me somewhat. 4 days of weekend – and only one of them was wet.
However, I did forget to record a day of eats over the Bank Holiday weekend, so I had to make sure I photographed everything on Tuesday – then the battery on my camera ran out, aaaahhhh!
Anyways, here’s the best I could do 🙂
Before I started on this vegan journey I made this granola, and I thought it would be a waste not to share it with you because it really was yummy.
It was a ‘challenge’ I saw on Facebook which made me try it. A friend of a friend posted a tongue in cheek comment requesting a low fat protein granola made and delivered. Well, I couldn’t resist the challenge, so there and then I had a go – and got it right first time.
Actually, I love to make granola. It’s so easy just to throw a few things together – pop it in the oven and BOOM – granola perfect for sprinkling over a breakfast smoothie, or serve with milk.
Hey – so I’ve been working on my vegan eats for about a week now. I know I haven’t been perfect, but I also know it’s a step in the right direction. It doesn’t feel so bad to know I’ve had a nibble of animal products here and there when my main meals and snack have been good, wholesome plant-based meals.
This has been a whole lot easier because I hade some amazing products to help me through the week.
I’ve finished off the last of the salmon in the fridge, I have the last quorn steak (that I battled with myself over buying) for dinner tonight and my whey protein shakes are packed away. I went shopping over the weekend and I’ve stocked up on almond milk.
Actually, the thing I’m most concerned about is my daily tea and coffee – only one of each, but always with milk. I’ve trialled soya cappuccinos in my local coffee shops over the weekend, and actually, I think I can get used to it – that is if I am ‘allowed’ soya that’s not fermented.
Anyway, while I use up the last of the non-vegan produce in the fridge, I was trialling this breakfast idea. After dabbling with going gluten free, and years of not allowing myself anything that was remotely unhealthy, I have since emabraced Fench toast – or as we called it when we were growing up – eggy bread. After all, aside from gluten isses, what’s wrong with a slice of wholemeal/granary bread (Ok, so at times I wouldn’t eat a whole slice of bread) with egg/egg white (in my no fat days *eye roll*) dry fried with only a sprizt of 1 cal spray (*another eye roll*).
Ok, so it’s a little late for St Patricks Day. I made them on Sunday, and was able to devour them on St Patrick’s Day – but, sorry, it’s a little late for you!
I saw the recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a go.
What do you think?
Ok, ok, not quite. But they were tasty enough…
