What I Ate Wednesday {7.7.15}

8 July 2015

This ended up being a very "Fourth of July" inspired breakfast, ha ha ha! I didn't plan it that way but I kind of like how festive it looks. I had my usual porridge with almond milk, 1/2 a banana, blueberries and strawberries with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. I also had a black coffee & pint of water with lime in it. 

After breakfast I went for a 30 minute walk. When I came back I was starving! For lunch I had a Caprese sandwich...I made this using a wholewheat pitta, 1/2 mozzarella ball & about four cherry tomatoes chopped into halves. I added some rocket, a pinch of salt and a dash of extra virgin olive oil. This was SO good, it's the perfect summer sandwich! I had another pint of water & followed it up with a black coffee. 

I had a dentist appointment later that afternoon, so before I went out I had a quick snack. I've been trying to vary my snacks lately so today I chose figs chopped up into natural low-fat yoghurt. This actually ended up being very delicious so I will definitely try it again! 

For dinner I made salmon, sweet potatoes & green veggies. I baked the salmon in the oven wrapped in tin foil with a little bit of olive oil, salt & black pepper. I baked them along with the sweet potatoes with the skins on. Then I added the veggies which were Bird's Eye SteamFresh (you can cook these in the microwave, super quick & easy!). To drink I had more water! 

Evening Treat
I'm trying to be good in preparation for our upcoming trip to America (which is really hard...especially when Emilia & Eduardo baked brownies today!!) but this is kind of a good mix of healthy with a hint of indulgence! I basically took a wholemeal baguette, sliced it and added some Boursin Black Pepper cream cheese, then topped it with avocado. The combination of black pepper, avocado & cream cheese is so yummy! Especially since the pepper gives it a flavourful kick. (Boursin are giving away a meal for two at Michelin star London restaurant Le Gavroche - for the chance to win, click here!)

Those were my meals for today! I also drank two litres of water and had a cup of peppermint & licorice tea before bed. And drooled a bit over those brownies. What did you eat today?!

  10. Hey Anna! Love your posts, I was thinking how about adding the kids meals to your what you ate videos?

  11. Hi Anna! I've tried going on so many diets that I just can't maintain. Tomorrow, I'm starting the Anna diet! You seem to have a great balance of foods that I love, U.S. You indulge once in awhile and never seem to overdo it! Very inspired by your posts. Also I love that you are so consistent with your meals since you found what works for you - I think that's key!

  12. Everthing looks delicious and healthy- perfect for summer! We have been having quite a heat wave in Germany, but thankfully some rain finally came to break the heat.



  13. A nutritionist says you should have 1/3 raw food, 1/3 easily processed foods, refined foods 1/3.
    Your meals are the perfect example. I love you varied dinner and you gave up pasta :D

  14. Hi Anna! My name is Anna too! I love your youtube videos and your family is so lovely. Emilia and Eduardo are so lucky to grow up with an influential mother like you! You are an inspiration to me and I love your blog. Ignore any mean stuff said by anyone because you're amazing! Have an amazing day! Love Anna xx <3

  15. Fig and yoghurt combo - yum idea! I would love you to recommend a good Italian recipe book (in English) for simple family meals. Your pasta dishes always look delicious. Thanks Anna

  16. I also eat oats every morning! You are really eating healthy! I always like your sandwiches.
