What I Ate Wednesday {17.5.14}

21 May 2014

Same ol' same ol'. Organic porridge oats with almond milk, 1/2 banana, blueberries & cinnamon! Eaten with a decaf Nespresso coffee & big pint of water with apple flavoured Spatone. No, I will never tire of this breakfast! It keeps me full till lunchtime and is deliciously healthy :)

I made a Caprese toasted panino in our sandwich press! It tasted amazing...all you need to make it is some buffalo mozzarella (I used half a ball), San Marzano tomatoes (any tomatoes will do!), a dash of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt! If you have some fresh basil on hand, add that too (I didn't). The multiseed ciabatta bread was fresh from our local bakery and I toasted this up until the mozzarella was just melted. Yum!!

I followed this up with a Pink Lady apple & vanilla kids yogurt. I used to get these yogurts for Emilia but she's more into the Go-Yos at the moment so I eat them myself! They are full size with no sugar or nasty ingredients like aspartame and all organic so they're super good for you! I like the vanilla & strawberry flavour best. I also drank another pint of water.

Emilia saying "cheeeeese!" at lunch :) Little monkey.

I made chicken enchiladas for the first time ever! I thought they were okay...I made them using an Old El Paso kit I got and added chicken breasts, red pepper, onion and shredded mozzarella cheese. Being that the sauces all came from a box, the flavour was a bit bland. I'm sure "real" Mexican enchiladas are much better!! But it was interesting to try...maybe next time I will try them from scratch. With this I also downed another pint of water.

This is my newest snack obsession! Tayto Bistro Gourmet Sweet & Salty Popcorn...this stuff is amaze-balls! Only 350ish cals for almost a full bag, and free from any artificial flavours. The only ingredients are maize, coconut oil, sugar and salt. If you're a fan of that sweet/salty combination like me (I love to mix Maltesers with popcorn sometimes!) you will love these! You can also get them in Jalapeno and Sour Cream flavour which Jonathan likes. I had this bowl with another decaf Nespresso and a pint of water.

That's it for this week! Let me know what your favourite snack/dessert is, and if you've tried the popcorn tell me what you think! :)
