What I Ate Wednesday {29.3.16}

30 March 2016

Breakfast (8:30am)

For breakfast we went back to basics and had porridge with whole milk. (We actually hadn't eaten this in over a week!) I added my favourite toppings of medjool dates, honey and cinnamon. Before eating anything I drank a cup of Clipper Rise & Shine tea (to help with digestion) and a bottle of water. Right before working out I did also make myself a black coffee...I don't think my morning would be complete without it! 

Morning Snack (11am)

After my workout I had a banana and strawberry yoghurt. This is my favourite brand of the moment - Yeo Valley yoghurts are so creamy and delicious! I also drank another bottle of water during my workout.

Lunch (2pm)

For lunch I had roasted aubergines & courgette salad with lettuce, black olives, semi-sundried tomatoes, parmesan and Caesar salad dressing. You can also make this with chicken if you prefer! 

Afternoon Snack (4:30pm)

In the afternoon I usually edit videos so by about 3/4 o'clock I start to get really tired and in need of an energy boost! I had another coffee along with two mandarins and a granola bar. I ate the mandarins before taking this picture...ha ha ha! Evidently I was hungry! These granola bars are AMAZING; they are my newest obsession and I even included them in my favourites video :) 

Dinner (6:30pm)

I feel like I always show the same dinner on here, or at least variations of the same thing...oops! I must try to switch things up a bit more. We had chicken with mushrooms and sweet & sour sauce (we use the Seeds of Change brand) along with rice which we made with mixed frozen veggies (peas, corn, carrots), onions and coconut oil. I also had another bottle of water with my dinner. 

Evening Snack / Dessert (8:45pm)

After the kids go to bed I normally take my shower, change into my pyjamas and chill on the sofa surrounded by 700 dogs. I honestly look forward to this time everyday! So this is my time to indulge...ha ha! Tonight I couldn't decide between a cupcake & a cookie so I had both. These cookies are the raisin & oatmeal ones from Waitrose bakery and they are SO soft! The cupcakes was one of our homemade Easter ones I baked last week. They were lemon flavour with vanilla buttercream icing and I think these are my favourites! So simple but really yummy. I also had a cup of peppermint and licorice tea (Teapigs Sweet Treat) and another bottle of water. 

And that's it! What did you eat today?

  5. My husband and I follow the same ritual when kids go to bed. And I look forward to that time too! It's the best!
    Loving your videos!!


  6. Hi from Brazil! I absolutely love your channel and blog. I have a 4-month-old and have been watching your old videos. I honestly don't know how you do it all! Even with a maid to clean my house I have no time to cook whatsoever, and yet you did it back then with Emilia. You're such an inspiration.

  7. i love your blog Anna!i made a blog but i don't know how to make a URL so... but anyways amazing as always

  8. OMG that salad looked amazing, like I want that, right now, and it's 10:30 pm here lol. I am actually going to try making that this week it looks fantastic!


  9. I had raspberries with Total 0% fat greek yoghurt for breakfast. I use frozen raspberries as they are cheaper and last longer so when you mix it all together it tastes like ice cream! I don't like greek yoghurt on it's own but with fruit mixed in it's lovely and sweet.

    For lunch I had an instant cous cous sachet from Tesco as I didn't have time to sort anything else out before work. You just add hot water so it's easy to make in an office.

    For snacks I had an apple and a banana. I also got a latte from the canteen.

    For dinner I had quorn stir fry with noodles... and I'm about to scoff my easter eggs for pudding!

  10. I love this! The salad looks fantastic. Definitely getting some inspiration here...
