What I Ate Wednesday {22.9.15}

23 September 2015

It's been a while since I properly blogged What I Ate Wednesday so here we are. Today was a pretty busy day as we headed into London for a meeting at Google HQ and a sneaky lunch date ;) Breakfast was same as normal - porridge cooked with almond milk, 1/2 banana, blueberries & cinnamon. Black coffee and a water! I keep telling myself I need to try warm water with lemon in the mornings but I always forget...maybe tomorrow!

We grabbed lunch at Zizzi's and I got the chicken & prosciutto salad. This is really yummy and very filling! It's got everything from cherry tomatoes, croutons, avocado, parmesan cheese and red onions in there. To drink I just had still water because I'm trying to drink 2L a day!

Coffee Break
After our meeting we went for a much-needed caffeine boost at Monmouth Coffee Company. This place is famous for its coffees and had been recommended to us so many times! I can attest to the fact that their coffee is amazing...and very strong!

Luckily there is SO much free food at Google so I knew I would be hungry later and I stocked up! They have tons of healthy snacks to offer, I opted for a nectarine (think I called this a peach in the video, sorry!) and this blueberry & seed shot. I ate these in the taxi on the way back to the train station!

Since we arrived home at about dinner time and were totally exhausted from being in London all day, we picked up some easy yet healthy (ish) microwaveable meals at M&S. Of course I got a seafood linguine dish, the kids got Ravioli to share and Jonathan had a chicken Thai green curry. This was obviously not a patch on the other seafood pasta dishes I'd been having in Sorrento but it hit the spot for this particular evening!

Evening Snack
After dinner I opted for a healthy snack of organic fat free strawberry yoghurt (Yeo Valley is the brand) with lots of red grapes mixed in. I also made a licorice & mint tea (Teapigs) and that was it! To drink all day I had about 2L water :) 

Hope you enjoyed this week's What I Ate! What did you eat today?

  6. The salad looks so yummy! You should definitely try to drink warm water with fresh lemon juice. It takes seconds to prepare but it's great for you digestive system, metabolism and of course immune system. I've been drinking it for more than a year now and I see the advantages! XOXO, Kasia

  25. Hi Anna ... I am sorry that i dont understand exactly what the food items taste like which you are eating .. As i am from india .. :) :) and food here is sooo different ... but even then i am a big fan of yours and just love your vedios ... they are very helpfull most of the times.... :) luv u ..

  26. How do you keep yourself from snacking? I feel like i'm hungry all the time and I snack ALL the time... I do drink a lot of water but It doesn't really seem to help. Or have working out changed your appetite? :)

  27. M&S ready meals are my absolute favourite ! I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog Anna aswell as watching your videos ! Xx

  28. Dear Anna,
    I tried to find your email to write you because I saw in last video that you was talking about problems with skin, but I couldn't find it. I hope that you'll see this comment.
    I had problems with skin like you are having, and one friend told me to try La Roche Posay. I have mixed skin but sometimes it's really oily. Their collection for skin which is breaking out and which is sensetive, mixed or oily is caled EFFACLAIR, and the best thing to start with is: effaclair purifying foaming gel & effaclair duo+ cream. Both products are not over-drying skin so if you don't have oily skin you can use it too. You can check it all here:
    Believe me this thing was miracle for me I saw results after 2 weeks. I hope that you'll see my comment and that this will help you.
    Greetings for you :-)

  29. Hi anna! I Only just found out you had a blog, i really like it though and this post made me soo hungry :)
