WIAW #31

Well... it's Wednesday! You know what that means, right?
Yes, yes we are all wearing pink (right? right???) but it is also that time of the week where we share our eats from the day! Let's hop to it!

Thanks Peas and Crayons for the link-up!

I totally planned on having 2 wholemeal crumpets with PB today, but when I woke up I was craving oats! (Surprised? Nope, neither was I) and in honouring my body's requests- it does do a lot for me after all- I made some blueberry vanilla protein steel cut oats... t'was good:
Using this sneaky method to make sure there was always a bit of nut butter on my spoon ;)
Then of course drowning the top with nut butter for safe measure. The oats were simply 1/3 cup steel cut oats with 1 chopped banana, a handful of blueberries, a scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder, a lot of almond milk, (I don't measure it) some chia seeds and... that's it! Bubbling away on the stove for 15-20 mins and then left to cool for another 10 mins.

Who doesn't love melted nut butter?
In reality, I think I just love the colour more than anything. No, that's a lie, it tastes amazing :)

I was off from school yesterday so got to enjoy lunch at home for a nice change ;) Made myself a little snack plate:
Peas, popcorn, the last of my organic blue maize tortilla chips and some roasted sweet potato and potato rounds covered with some roasted butter nut squash... YUM!
Best part of the meal definitely!
Am I the only one who loves peas enough to simply heat up a bowl of them (frozen) and eat straight with a spoon? Peas are so yummy :)

Nothing picks me up at 4:00pm like a little fruit and soy milk. Very green snack today:
A deliciously crisp granny smith apple with some green grapes:
And a glass of So Good Essential Soy Milk.

Dinner was a winner with a delicious taco!
There was a wholegrain wrap:
Some Mexican spiced red kidney beans and lentils:
A delicious salsa salad thing with tomato, capsicum, red chilli, coriander, kale, avocado and lemon juice:
A few spoons of dairy free hommus:
Along with a few spoons of greek yoghurt (representing the sour cream:)
With the leftovers that didn't fit in the wrap placed in a bowl:
Hello tasty wrap of delicious Mexican-ness:
Fresh, crunchy, warming, spicy and full of flavour! I was pretty full after this!
So that's everything I ate and all-in-all I'm pretty happy. Ticked all my boxes! Healthy, filling, full of veggies and out of this world delicious!

What about you? What did you eat Wednesday?
Remember to head on over to Peas and Crayons to check out what everyone else has been nom-ing. (and maybe meet a new friend too!)

Ciao for now! :D


  1. I love snack plates for lunch! I've never thought of pop corn...I'm inspired:)

  2. Faith,
    Snack plates are the best! A little bit of everything to satisfy every craving :) Popcorn.. yes, I was simply feeling a bit of popcorn. Why not?

    Thanks for commenting :)
