It's been a while since I did a What I Ate Wednesday and these are actually some of my most requested posts so here you are! If you don't already know what these entail, they're basically where I show everything I eat in a day. Today was pretty healthy by my standards but they're not always like this! (Especially after Halloween...but I've been trying to limit myself buying junk food so our stash is slowly diminishing.)
For breakfast I had porridge which is my favourite in the mornings and although I've been trying to eat different breakfasts lately, I always go back to this! I make mine with almond milk (I use the Rude Health brand) and take 1/2 cup oats, 1 and 1/4 cups of milk then cook in a saucepan on the stove. Then I topped with half a banana, blueberries and cinnamon (I've also been loving it with raisins). To drink I had a black coffee and bottle of water.
For lunch I had homemade butternut squash soup topped with a handful of crispy fried onions and ciabatta croutons (I get these as Cooks' Ingredients from Waitrose and they come in little tubs. Super easy for just throwing onto soups and making them look fancier!) I also drank another bottle of water.
Later in the afternoon I had a black coffee which I've only recently starting adding back in as I went off coffee for a while during the first trimester. I also had some chopped mango and a pot of greek style yoghurt with honey.
For dinner we had baked salmon fillets with potatoes fried in onions (these are so yummy!) and a prawn, tomato & coconut cream sauce. To be honest I probably could have added in some green veggies but I got lazy, haha! To drink I had another bottle of water.
I was stuffed after dinner but we watched The Walking Dead which always leads to snacking! So I kept it healthy (honestly it's normally not like this...I'm just trying to be good but lately it's been more like half a bag of tortilla chips and lots of sweeties!) with some red grapes, almonds and a licorice tea. This tea is always a staple in the evening - I love it. It's the sweet treat one from Teapigs). I also drank another bottle of water...always trying to keep hydrated! (And then getting up to go for a wee every hour of the night. Wonderful.)
That's it for today! Hopefully you enjoyed this post and let me know if you want me to continue doing them!
