Hello friendly friends and happy middle-of-the-week, otherwise known as Wednesday. :)
As always Wednesday is a day to dedicate to food! In the form of a full day of meals! Do the exclamation marks make it 10x more exciting! Of course you're excited, we're all snoops here ;)
This WIAW is a full day of eats from Monday, a day where I was considerably hungry and couldn't seem to get enough food into me. It was a pretty good day.
Breakfast: 7:25 am
As Sunday saw me running and working and standing etc. I decided to only do a quick 12-minute HIIT workout from Purely Twins, which was a smart idea as I woke up ravenous and immediately fled to the kitchen straight afterwards for food!
It was not until I had pulled out all the ingredients for a delicious smoothie and had soaked my oats that I remembered I broke my previous blender.
The food processor did a good enough job, however it was a bit bitsy and the clumps that remained were accidentally assumed frozen banana pieces when they were actually frozen zucchini... yeh that wasn't the best mouthful of the day.
Any-who it was still a pretty good smoothie with 1/2 frozen banana + handful blueberries + handful frozen zucchini cubes + 1/2 cup quick oats soaked in almond milk + 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter + 1 large handful spinach + 3 scoops greek yoghurt + water.
I was still kinda hungry but I decided to give my stomach a chance to digest the smoothie and got ready for school!
Snack: 11:00 am
At the mandatory snack time of 11:00 am my stomach was rumbling and I sort of wished I had more than my usual pot of peas.
Still extremely delicious though!
Lunch: 1:15 pm
Pre-made the night before included this delicious lunch of boiled brown rice, veg (carrot, capsicum, tomato, spinach) and split pea + roasted veg falafel.
By lunch was stomach was howling and even after all that deliciousness I was still a little peckish!
Snack: 4:00 pm
Home from school, straight to the fridge....
A huuuge pear and a glass of soy milk later and I'm happy :)
Dinner: 6:45 pm
Come dinner time and I'm starving again (what is going on? I blame my too small breakfast!)
Finishing off the night with 3 perfectly ripe strawberries.
So as you can see Monday was a day when I was RAVENOUS! And I obligatorily fed the beast all the good stuff. As you can see I upped some of the more filling stuff (nuts, nut butter, coconut oil, legumes etc.) to try and tame the tummy for at least a couple hours!
Have/ do you ever use a food processor to make smoothies?
Should I get the vitamix to replace my blender??
Ever find you haven't packed enough food for wherever you're going!? I always seem to land in this position- bring ALL the food Steph, you're a hungry beast!!
Hungry for more? Head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else is eating this Wednesday!
