What I Ate Wednesday {21.1.15}

21 January 2015

Today's breakfast was a bit of a disaster as we hadn't gone food shopping since getting home from Ireland on Sunday so this morning we were down to our last drop of milk & our fridge was empty! We were due to get our Ocado delivery at 9am but the van broke down (of course it did...the one time we were all starving!) so I didn't eat breakfast until about 11am. Either way, it was the same as normal! Regular porridge oats with almond milk, 1/2 banana, blueberries & cinnamon. I also had a cup of coffee but that was earlier at about 9! 

While the children were having their lunch I ate a quick snack. I had an apple with a peach & passionfruit Fruitopolis yoghurt. 

Surprise, surprise...a bagel! I can't help myself - I look forward to a good ham & cheese bagel for lunch (almost) everyday! These New York Bakery Co. Limited Edition Seeded bagels are the best. The only downside is that you only get 4 in a pack instead of the usual 5. Another favourite of mine is the red onion & chive flavour...yum! We use really mature cheddar cheese, apple smoked ham and black & red pepper. Add some cherry tomatoes & cucumber slices and that's my favourite lunch!

Afternoon Coffee
I probably wouldn't make it through the day without this coffee...the perfect reward for getting both children down for their afternoon nap! Ha ha ha! 

A friend of ours brought us this homemade Indian curry yesterday and I have no idea what it's called or how it was made but it was absolutely delicious! This was a lot spicier than what we're used to but we love spicy food so I was up for the challenge! It's made with chicken mince and that's a potato sitting on top! It also had onions in it. That's all I know! I put it with some brown rice and tasted a bit like a really spicy Indian chilli...so good. Plus it made me down a lot of water which is always a bonus!

Lately I've been obsessed with these Joe & Seph's gourmet/posh popcorns...they come in a variety of different cool flavours and are totally decadent! This one is caramel & sea salt which satisfies both sweet & salty cravings in one go! I enjoyed this with a decaf coffee. 

To drink I had 2L of water (yay!) and that's about it! What did you eat today?!


  1. These are my favourite posts to read since they give you an insight into what people eat! I also post daily eats on my blog too. Thanks for sharing Anna!


  2. These "what I ate wednesday" posts inspire me so much! I wich I could find these kind of bagels here in brazil, but they are so small in here, don't think it would be enough to have only the bagel for lunch...
    Those popcorns look so yummi!!
    Love you Anna!!

    1. Our bagels here in the USA are so huge, they are the equivalent of 4 or 5 slices of bread,
      I usually have a half of one for my breakfast with some cream cheese.

  3. What a morning with the truck! We actually haven't had a chance to go grocery shopping yet, so I can understand the hunger and uncertainty of breakfast (doesn't that sound a bit dramatic, hahah!). I don't have the added challenge of two hungry children, though.. Every time you do a WIAW I always dream of getting a Nespresso (I think that's what I see in the daily vlogs?). Alas, it is not nearly as easy to attain in my part of the US so I'll keep dreaming for now.

    Much Love,

  9. Hi Anna! As always everything looks delicious.. especially the popcorn, I love anything with a dash of sea salt on it! By the way, after practically drooling at every bagel toastie Jonathan makes you guys, I finally made some for myself! My boyfriend and I love them...I've been making them on everything bagels with honey baked ham and cheese with pepper inside. So good, I can see why you have them all the time! Love from Michigan :)

  25. I had a bagel for lunch too, but mine was a lot less healthy; it was one of those cinnamon and raisin ones and I filled it with pecan and maple peanut butter, haha.
    I need to hunt down a bag of that popcorn. I love popcorn way too much and this one sounds amazing.

  28. Your pictures always make me so hungry. I'm trying to cook for myself more, as living at home right now means I have all my meals cooked for me (blessed, I know), but I will be moving out on my own and your WIAW help me to motivate myself!

  35. When I first moved to London from Greece (4 months ago) I saw one of your videos describing what you 're eating for breakfast and since then it's the only thing I eat each and every morning a porridge w/ blueberries, 1/2 banana, greek honey and cinnamon which I adore! Generally since I moved here you are my company or better my friendliest friends :). I watch your videos every morning while I have my porridge, it's the "me time" of my day! Love and kisses to your lovely kids.
