WIAW #59- Exam day eats!

Hidy-ho friendly friends!
My brain is hurting, I am mentally exhausted and if I hear the word exam I think I might curl up in a ball and cry silent tears.

Ha- just kidding! But seriously.

Today's WIAW is an interesting one as it features extra jam-packed full of nutrients eats that are fueling me through each day of exams (uh oh, curling up, people, curling up!) so without further a do; here's what I ate on Tuesday! (my first day of exams- bring it on Literature!!

Breakfast: 7:00am
Woke up bright and early for my 8:50am exam and fixed myself a biiiig bowl of pink love!
 Cherry cheesecake steel cut oats!
 Into the pot went steel cut oats, frozen cherries, 1 chopped banana, almond milk and water- bubbled away until thick and porridge-y:
 With a few spoons of greek yoghurt stirred in at the end= cheesecake!
 Topped off with some mixed nut butter with coconut spread.
Gah, so good!

Lunch: 12:30
The exam went from 8:50am through to 12:00pm, so no snacks today!
Instead... lunch! (Prepped the night before as I knew I would need some sustenance. Quickly.)
 Rice paper rolls filled with carrot, beetroot, shredded lettuce, cucumber, coriander, capsicum and some satay tofu. Was quite tasty indeed!
 That big eye looking at you is my minion plate. I love it :)

Snack: 4:00pm
Spent the afternoon studying for today's exam (maths, wooh.) and decided some fruit with soy milk was in order to power me through!

Recycled pic, but exactly the same- persimmon with soy milk :)

Dinner: 6:45pm
By dinner, I was gone.
Did I mention I had managed to stop myself getting sick for the past two weeks leading up to exams when everyone else was, but come Tuesday morning- runny nose, sore throat, clogged head, the whole shebang! Fabulous :/

 Dinner featured some roast veg (pumpkin, parsnip, potato and celeriac- let the team down celeriac, by not starting with P!), roasted in olive oil and lemon thyme, mixed with some peas, corn, spinach and torn up falafel. Y.U.M.
 After I had taken a few bites I also remembered I had cooked up some quinoa and so flung that in my bowl too!

After dinner snack was a cold and flu Lemsip. Tasty.
That's what I ate!

What about you:
Do you add greek yoghurt to your oats to create a cheesecake flavour?
Best breakfast to keep your brain sharp for several hours?
Any cold/ flu remedies that work quick smart? I'm desperate!!

Hungry for more? Head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else has been nom-ing on!
I hope you all have a great day, eat lots of yummy food and tell someone you love, that you love them! It's always a nice thing to do ;) Bye!! :D


  1. Ooo those cheesecake oats look fantastic!! I've only ever eaten hot oatmeal with Greek yogurt on the top or bottom, never mixed in. I'm gonna have to change that soon I think ;)

    1. Alison,
      I always saw people popping some greek yoghurt on top of their oats and thought why not spread the love? ;)
