What I Ate Wednesday! {22.2.16}


I haven't done one of these blog posts in forever! 

Breakfast (8:30am)
Lately my breakfast has been the same every morning. I have organic porridge oats with skimmed milk, a medjool date (these taste amazing...like a caramel sweet!) chopped up into it along with some cinnamon. I also have a cup of black coffee (not pictured) and a pint of water before eating anything!


Lunch 12pm
After breakfast I did a 20 minute HIIT workout & drank another 500ml bottle of water. Then I had lunch at noon which was wholegrain pitta bread with avocado, cucumber, feta cheese, peppers, rocket and lemon juice. Even though there are actually two pitta breads in this picture I ended up eating one and leaving some feta (my eyes are ALWAYS bigger than my belly!). 


Snack (3:30pm)
In the afternoon I always go through a bit of a slump which usually means I need coffee! So I had another black one with some fruit salad. (Fruit and coffee actually don't go that nicely together...but I try to keep my snacks healthy during the day!) Today's fruit salad contained blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, mango and a splash of Innocent Mango & Passionfruit Smoothie. After my snack I also downed another 1/2L bottle of water!  


Dinner (6:15pm)
I totally forgot to take a picture of dinner until I was about halfway through...oops! Yes, halfway...my pasta portions are always massive! For dinner I had wholewheat casarecce pasta with aubergines, onions & mediterranean veggie sauce. This is one of my favourite meals ever. Pasta & veggies = yum! Along with dinner I had another bottle of water.  


Dessert (8:45pm)
That evening while Jonathan & I were watching TV we enjoyed some tea & biscuits. It's become kind of a night time tradition to do this together and I love it because it makes cold evenings seem really cosy! I have peppermint & licorice tea and he has camomile. We both like the Teapigs brand best. My current favourite sweet treat of the moment is chocolate Hobnobs! I know I've mentioned them before but I am obsessed! They're even better dipped into coffee or hot milk ;)

Here's the video on my workout and what I ate...what did you eat today?!

  1. That pasta looks amazing! You do such a good job of incorporating all of your food groups. I definitely need to try and eat more fruit. :)

  2. My snack today was a mini cupcake and a pear. The cupcake was literally bite-sized and I only had one because if I'm being honest I'll probably have more for dessert tonight. Your fruit salad looks so yummy. I really need to get in the habit of making that to have ready for the week so I don't do the cupcakes.... Ha ha!

  12. Thanks for sharing, I love lifestyle media. I have very similar taste in food (love fish, veggies, and chocolate). I think you might enjoy slow cooked greens, they have a lot of flavor and are low calorie and have micronutrients.

  13. I must get back into having my porridge and fruit for breakfast! I definitely have a lack of fruit & veg in my diet! I love watching your What I Ate Wednesday videos to see your current workout! I am currently trying to do some of Lucy's videos 5 times a week, I'm so glad you found her! I love her HIIT workouts!

  18. Hi Anna! I adore you and your family :) I was wondering if you have ever tried the Yogi Tea brand, I think you would love it! They have great flavors, all organic and their tea bag tags always say something nice and positive!
