WIAW #75- Overdosing... on VEG!

Hidy ho friendly friends!

No fancy intro today- all you need to know is that it is Wednesday, I eat food and this is a full day of eats! WIAW style! Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons for creating this awesome weekly link-up for us bloggers to drool over everyone else's food... and maybe get some inspo along the way ;).


Breakfast: 7:45am
This is a look into one of my last few days of holidays and first few days of being back in Australia after returning from Africa- in other words, ALL the veg and fruit and fresh stuff and deliciousness!

My brekky:
 Rich, chocolatey fudge bites made with oats, oat bran, mashed banana, raw cacao powder, almond butter, chia seeds, cinnamon and almond milk- all mashed up together and placed in the freezer for around 30 mins.
 Eaten alongside some super creamy, sweet mango fro-yo:
 Frozen mango + greek yoghurt- whazzed in a food processor until smooth.
 Yup, it tasted as good as it looks!
 Then it just got better...

Lunch: 12:15pm
Ever since I've come back my hunger seems to kick in all at once and with a vengeance. So this was a quick throw-together meal of chopped up raw veg (capsicum, carrot, tomato, peas, corn, beetroot, spinach,  mixed sprouted beans and a torn up quinoa veggie burger:
 So fresh and exactly what the body ordered!

Snack: 3:30pm
Again, super hungry- again, I ate :)
 Some delicious crisp and sweet watermelon with two chopped up kiwi's (skin on- it's great trust me!) and a mug of soy milk.

Dinner: 6:45pm
I was still in veggie-land (you don't know how much you miss something until it's gone!) so I roasted up some pumpkin, potato, sweet potato, parsnip, brussels and eggplant in some olive oil for around 45-50 minutes at 180 degrees celsius:
 Then I added in some spinach and lentils to the bowl and devoured (it was a tad hot but Steph was hungry!!)
 Nothing beats roasted veg!

 And there's just something about roasting eggplant and brussels sprouts that take their flavour to a whole new level!
 Finishing off the night with 4 pitted dates- nom!

Aaaand that's what I ate!

What about you?
Do you ever make super-chocolatey breakfasts? It's quite the regular occasion for me!
Ever come home from a trip and eat ALL the veggies?
Favourite vegetable to roast and why? 

I hope you all have a fabulous day and eat something super delicious. Feel free to share your delicious adventures with me too! Bye for now friendly friends! :D


  1. I think you ate a day of my favorite things. I wish watermelon was still good here. Time for tons of brussels though!

    1. Laura,
      I am so excited for watermelon season- you have no idea how long I've been wanting it!!! Also, brussels are amazing- so we both win! :)

  2. This always happened to me on all my travels! Give me all the fresh produce when I'm back home:) Everything looks amazing!

    1. Faith,
      I know right- I wanted it ALL in one meal!! Not complaining though- all my usual (starting to get boring) meals were suddenly as delicious and exciting as they used to be! :D
