What I Ate Wednesday {8.3.16}

9 March 2016

Breakfast (8:30am)

Breakfast was the same as always...porridge with skimmed milk, chopped medjool date, cinnamon & a black coffee. I also had my usual bottle of water before breakfast and another one with my morning workout!

Lunch (1:30pm)

I was starving by the time lunch came around...yesterday was Emilia's swimming day so we were out all morning! For lunch I had grilled aubergine & courgette salad with cherry tomatoes, rocket & red onion.

Afternoon Snack (3:30pm)

That afternoon I had a homemade brownie that I had baked over the weekend (these are to die-for!!) with my coffee (taken black). I also downed another bottle of water!

Dinner (6pm-ish)

For dinner we had chicken pilau with carrots...this was so yummy & filling! And another bottle of water which meant I had 2L total - woo hoo!

Dessert (6:30pm)

For dessert I had something light as I was pretty full after dinner (but still craving sweets!) so I ate fruit salad which was made up of blueberries, strawberries, bananas, grapes, raspberries, apples and cinnamon topped with mango & passionfruit smoothie. 

Tea (8:30pm)

After the kids were in bed I relaxed with a cup of Teapigs Sweet Treat tea which contains licorice & peppermint. And that's it! You can watch the video of what I ate including my workout here:

  5. What I ate Wednesdays are a favourite of mine always! I just picked up some dates tonight at the grocery store and I plan I trying them in my porridge in the morning (inspired by you of course). I can't wait!

    I have also been trying your workouts on my own time and they are exhausting and so effective despite being so quick. I am doing them every other day with cardio days on the days in between!

    Thanks for being such an inspiration to me for healthy eating, exercise and general lifestyle :)



  6. Your salad looks delicious! You should try and get some good carbs in after a workout though, it helps the body recover :)

  16. Anna I LOVE your what I ate Wednesday's. And if everyone in the world were to post exactly what they ate every Wednesday I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be nearly as healthy and as balanced as your meals are! I'm always so impressed at how disciplined you are with healthy meals and snacks and then just one treat. You inspire me! Thank you thank you for posting these!!

  21. where do you get all your food ideas from/ recipes .. what's your top cook books?? .. also does emilia and Eduardo eat exactly what you do each day or do they have different if so what do they eat? I've got a little girl who's 2 1/2 but she's quite fussy and I barley eat what she and her daddy does as I'm really really fussy with food as I don't really like many vegetables but I always try to give her the best xx
