Happy hump day friends! It totally took me way too long to figure out it was Wednesday today- I had absolutely no idea what day it was! Holidays will do that to a girl! Any who, seeing as it is Wednesday (as I eventually discovered) a full day of eats is in store for you today in the What I Ate Wednesday party style! Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons for hosting this weekly shebang!
This features all my eats from Monday, a fairly ordinary day with not much on- so I guess you could call this one; 'A typical day of eats'!
Now don't be fooled by the late(r) breakfast time, I was still up at around 7:00am (and actually a bit before, but Winter in Aus means at least 15 more minutes tucked up in bed willing time to slow down and cursing your bed for being so gosh darn warm!).
After procrastinating for around 15 minutes I finally shuffled out of bed shivering, drank some water, woke up a little and then headed into our 'gym' (a spare room that houses our treadmill and a few other strange machines) and did some more weights. Both my body and I are really loving this new type of movement and I'm noticing myself getting physically stronger and toned (I also appear to be getting hungrier- if that was even possible!).
Around 20-30 minutes later it was breakfast time!
In the mix was 1 chopped frozen banana, 1/2 small chopped frozen avocado, one big handful of kale, one big handful of spinach, a heaped tablespoon peanut butter, 1/3 cup soaked oats (oats+ almond milk soaked for around 20 mins or more- preferably overnight), 3 big scoops greek yoghurt, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup water- all whazzed together until smooth!
Around 12 the tummy starting grumbling again, so I popped a bot of brown rice and quinoa on the stove with some hot water and boiled away for around 25 mins:
I also pulled together some spices:
Sauteed off the veggies in a hot pan:
3 hours later and a snack was in order:
I was out from around 4-7:20pm so prepared some steamed and mashed veggies earlier in the day for a quick throw-together meal:
Come 7:20pm and I added in some steamed broccoli, garlic tofu and topped my bowl off with some globs of hommus- yum!
After dinner I had a handful of raw almonds and then I was done for the day! That my friends is a typical day of eating for me.
What about you?
What's the best thing you've eaten recently?
Are you a fan of weight lifting?
Food- hot or cold? I first heard about preferring to eat cold food from Katie and now I can't go back!
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, as always; eat something delicious. Don't foRget to head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else is nom-ing on! Bye for now friends! :D
