What I ate Wednesday #33

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.

What I ate Wednesday #32

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).

What I ate Wednesday #30

Hi all!  Happy hump day!

It’s What I ate Wednesday, so, as always, thanks to Jenn for hosting!

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 🙂

What I ate Wednesday #15

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 🙂

Protein Granola

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.

A week of…vegan products and vegan bircher muesli

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.

Vegan ‘french toast’

Vegan, French toast, eggy bread, bagel, bread, banana, almond milk, dry fry,I’m playing with being vegan – perhaps playing isn’t the right word.  I’m dipping my toe in the vegan water, just for a week or so to see how I get on.

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.

My last fish dinner

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*).

St Patrick’s Day matcha protein fudge bars

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?

Protein fudge, bars, protein powder

Ok, ok, not quite.  But they were tasty enough…
