WIAW #37 Christmas Lovin'

Hidy Ho happy friends! How do I know you're happy? Because it's CHRISTMAS EVE! That's how!!!
 Christmas just seemed to appear for me. Sprinting up to tomorrow before I even had a chance to say Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!

I have been trying to cram as much Christmas as I can into my days, though, with carols of repeat and a Christmas movie each night :) I just love this time of year!

But I'm getting off track because this is a WIAW post and I'm here to show you the eats! Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons for this awesome link-up!!

After two dates and a 30 min run I threw some steel cut oats on the stove with a banana, blueberries, almond milk and water and bubbled it away until the liquid was absorbed (I always put in lots of liquid- like triple the recommended amount- as I find the steel cut oats don't go very soft otherwise) then I let it cool for 10 mins before stirring in some greek yoghurt and topping with peanut butter- et voila! Blueberry cheesecake oats:
 How pretty is the colour of those oats though?
 Perfect post-running fuel- great carbs, protein and fat!
 And ridiculously yummy (can I hear a 'dessert for breakfast, oh yeah!')
 Just because I didn't think there was enough pink already....
For lunch I was going to be at a friends house, so I prepped a little container of awesome...
 This was a very random mix of peas, corn, cucumber, tomato, mixed four beans, capsicum, steamed potato and sweet potato and a spur-of-the-moment green sauce type thing:
 Into my trusty mini food processor went a big handful of spinach, kale and basil, along with some lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and a crushed garlic clove all whazzed up until smooth. Then stirred into salad:
 It was really quite tasty actually!
Back home at around 4:00pm I had a snack of an apple with grapes and a glass of soy milk:
I was pretty hungry for dinner so whipped up this big bowl of deliciousness at around 6:45pm:
 That was mixed mashed veggies (sweet potato, pumpkin, potato, beetroot, carrot, parsnip and swede) with some brown rice stirred in, along with some garlic tofu and spinach, topped off with a few blobs of hommus:
 Hit. The. Spot.
 I don't think this meal will ever get old for me as I've been eating it for months and months now and it's just my easy to throw together and enjoy- so simple :)
After dinner I had a small handful of mixed raw nuts and then settled in for some Christmas magic (otherwise known as Love Actually :)

And that's a wrap!

Are you excited for Christmas?
Favourite holiday movie? Mine is hands down Elf. Love it so much!
