Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday but I came down with some kind of viral flu-ey thing which started out as a headache but turned into an all over ache! :( Thankfully it only lasted 24 hours but I was pretty much in bed for almost the whole day. Anyway thankfully this What I Ate is from the day before so I didn't start to feel rotten until late in the evening.
For breakfast I had a slice of wholegrain toast with avocado on top and a black coffee. Basically all I do to make this is take one whole avocado (a big one!) and mash it up with salt & pepper then spread the whole thing on toast and you're done! I also had a bottle of water.
We had meetings from 12:30 till 2pm which was rather inconveniently right around lunch time! I didn't have time to eat in between them but we did get a plate of Italian pastries (best thing about meeting in an Italian restaurant!) and I had one of the larger two which are called sfogliatelle. They're a flaked pastry filled with cream...yum!!
I didn't have lunch till a lot later than usual as we also dropped my sister to the airport but when I got back I had homemade butternut squash soup (made with sweet potato & parsnips) with croutons and fried onions on top. This was actually really filling as I had a massive bowl of it! I also drank another bottle of water.
For dinner we had chicken thighs with roasted sweet potato and steamed broccoli. I don't know why but I'm obsessed with sweet potato at the moment! Also broccoli has been a must for me this pregnancy but unfortunately Jonathan doesn't like it so I end up eating most of it myself! (Aside from the little bits I manage to hide in the kids' meals!) Along with dinner I also had a bottle of water.
Evening Snack (9pm)
By the time evening rolled round my headache/weird body aches & pains had started :( So I made myself a hot lemon & ginger tea as well as one of my favourite snacks of the moment...some medjool dates stuffed with walnuts. This is a total go-to for curbing a sweet tooth craving yet it's healthy for you!
That's everything for this week's What I Ate! Don't forget to check out the vlog above which was introduced by Eduardo talking about his favourite topic of the moment...poo-poo.
