WIAW #41

Hidy-ho friendly friends! What a wonderful Wednesday it is! Maybe take away a few degrees, seeing as it's shaping up to be a 38 degrees clesius (11.4 degrees farenheit) day!!

Why am I complaining though? I love the heat!

It also happens to be my party today! Woop Woop! Pool party to the rescue on a hot Summers day in Australia! There's a pinata, pass the parcel, stick the carrot on the Olaf and a Mad Hatters Tea party set up (if you didn't guess already the entire theme is Disney!) and of course everyone will be in costume (Mad Hatter right here :))

Before I get too excited about the day's happenings I thought I'd share with you an entire day of eats from yesterday in WIAW style! Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons for hosting this awesome link-up each week!

After not one, not two, but three Purely Twins workouts, I splashed my sweating face with water and jumped into the kitchen to make some FOOD!
 2 wholemeal crumpets topped generously with some raw cacao and hazelnut butter and crunchy peanut butter (see I made up for my lack of peanut butter)
 With a green smoothie to wash it all down:
 1 chopped frozen banana + handful of frozen grapes + 3 big scoops of greek yoghurt + dash of LSA mix + sprinkle of chia seeds + juice of half an orange + 2 big handfuls of spinach, all whazzed up together until smooth!
 Smiling crumpet!
 Does anyone else do this:
 Eat around the middle of the crumpet (where all the nut butter is) and leave the best last bites (fuf nut butter) to the end?

After spending the morning shopping for party stuff (cups, plates, pinatas, decorations, food) I made myself a little feast:
 Yes I do have a tendency to eat like a baby with separate bowls for different tastes and textures :)
This bowl had a grilled lentil and veggies burger with roasted potatoes (roasted white, white sweet potato and orange sweet potato) with some spinach:
 Another bowl had some air popped popcorn, plain and delicious!
 And lastly a bowl of raw chopped veg, because raw chopped veg is amazing :)
 Close-up of my favourite bowl from that lunch (trust me, popcorn was a close second!)
As usual my snack of choice was some fruit and soy milk:

 Apple with red grapes:
 Perfect energy boost and some calcium and protein to keep me satisfied:
For dinner I made boiled up some spelt spaghetti, steamed some pumpkin, parsnip, swede and beetroot, pan-fried some tempeh, wilted some spinach and stirred it all together at the end with some tomato and garlic stir-through pasta sauce:


To finish off the day I had 4 brazil nuts and spent the rest of the evening watching some shows with the fam. :)

How about you?
Firstly- do you like crumpets? I love crumpets and don't know what I would do without them?
Secondly- Do you ever just have a series of bowls with different things in them for a meal?
Lastly- Favourite afternoon pick-me-up snack?

Hungry for more? Check out Peas and Crayons for some other link-ups and meal ideas! Make sure you have a fabulous day, no doubt my head will be full of Disney songs by the end of today! Bye for now! :D
