We are trying out a new breakfast every day this week in an effort to get the kids (well, Emilia) to enjoy it a bit more as normally it takes her about an hour to finish her porridge. So I figured I'd change things up a bit and so far so good! This morning I had greek yoghurt with granola, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Before that I also drank a cup of Clipper Rise & Shine tea to aid digestion (works like a charm!). And of course I had my usual 1/2 litre of water. After breakfast I made myself a cup of black coffee. (I don't think I could live without my morning coffee!)
Morning Snack (11am)
After my workout I had a banana and tbsp of peanut butter. This is my favourite post exercise snack! And my peanut butter servings just keep getting bigger & bigger, ha ha! While working out I drank another 1/2 litre of water.
For lunch I had beetroot and feta salad with mixed beans, pickled gherkins and red onion. It was so crunchy & delicious! I think beetroot and goat's cheese or feta is one of my favourite combinations ever!
Afternoon Snack (4pm)
At about 4 o'clock I was hungry again so I had an apple & granola bar with my coffee. I love these Nature's Path organic trail mix granola bars. Jonathan loves the dark chocolate chip kind so we buy about 2 packs of them each! I also drank another 1/2 litre of water as I always get really thirsty around this time of day!
I think we had the same dinner as this last week but I'm not sure...it is one of our staples though! This is chicken pilaff made with jasmine rice, chicken thighs, carrots and coconut oil. I also had some red cabbage stewed with porcini mushrooms (yummy!!) on the side. Along with dinner I downed another 1/2 litre bottle of water.
After the kids had gone to bed I took my shower and then came downstair to enjoy one of these St. Patrick's Day cupcakes we baked that afternoon! I made these using my usual chocolate cupcake recipe and topped them with buttercream icing to which I added some peppermint extract and a few squirts of green gel food colouring. We decorated them with lucky charms and a Haribo rainbow stick. Even our cases were rainbow themed! I'm not normally a big mint & chocolate fan but I don't think I've ever met a cake I didn't like so of course I tried them...and they are actually really good and moreish! I had mine with a cup of Pukka Detox tea which contains fennel seed, cardamom and licorice root. It was good but the Teapigs Sweet Treat is still my favourite!
And here's the video of what I ate including my workout (which I do three times total...I feel like I repeat myself constantly but I still get questions on this everyday!). What did you eat today?
