What I Ate Wednesday {22.11.16}

Yesterday was a pretty crazy day! Jonathan and I went to the BONCA Awards in London which I'm going to admit I was totally not in the mood for being that the previous night I had got about 4 hours sleep :( Our regular night visitor Eduardo came into our bed three times; on the first two occasions I brought him back to his room like a good parent...but on the third after lots of begging, crying, and "please mummy"s the guilt and exhaustion took over and I gave in. Until about 20 minutes later after all of that drama and being kicked and shoved repeatedly in the back, Eduardo proclaimed that he wanted to sleep in his own bed. Fantastic. Needless to say I was shattered the next day and the last thing I wanted to do was get glammed up for an awards show. But I somehow gathered the energy and made it out...even if I did feel like collapsing in a heap!  


I started off the day with a soft boiled egg, slice of wholegrain toast with sunflower spread (I use Vitalite Dairy Free Spread), a black coffee & bottle of water. 


For lunch I had a roast chicken salad made using with all the veggies we had in the fridge: lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and a few roasted red peppers. I seasoned with salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic glaze and also sprinkled some croutons and fried onions on top. It was really delicious, simple and fresh! I also drank another bottle of water.


Later in the afternoon I had a quick snack and coffee in an attempt to wake myself up for the awards show! So I made myself a black coffee and had some chopped mango (really craving this right now!) and a strawberry yoghurt. 


Unfortunately the awards show ended up taking place at the exact time we normally eat dinner so I was STARVING! By the time it finished it was already 9pm so we made a mad dash for food at a nearby Byron Burger. I'm normally much more of a desserts girl than a starters one, but given the fact that we were almost chewing the tables whilst ordering our food we got nachos with cheese, guacamole, sour cream and salsa to share. This honestly tasted like the most delicious thing I've eaten in my entire life but I'm pretty sure our taste buds were probably affected by how ravenous we were! Needless to say I devoured half of this...and all of the sour cream (Jonathan's a guacamole guy so it worked out well :)


For our mains we each ordered the exact same thing (this never happens!) which was a grilled chicken burger and sweet potato fries. However we both ate our meals completely differently; I had all of the inside of my burger plus the fries (the bun + fries is always way too much for me), and Jonathan had the bun & chicken plus the fries but left all of the veggies. Hahaha, we are a right pair of opposites! The burger itself contains grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, pickle and a yummy "special" sauce. After this beast of a meal I was well and truly stuffed and probably looked more like 9 months pregnant than 5 but it was totally worth it! I also forgot to mention that to drink I had water and drank another 3/4 of a bottle when we got home. 

And that concludes this week's What I Ate Wednesday! Hope you enjoyed and let me know what you ate today!

  16. Always really interesting to see what others eat in a day. I particularly liked the egg for breakfast, salad for lunch and your afternoon tea. Why is it that the simple meals are always the best! Although those nachos looked pretty good. :) :)
