WIAW #88- And New Blogging Schedule!!

Hidy ho friendly friends and happy Wednesday... Thursday!!

Yep, I sort of missed Wednesday, but that doesn't mean I missed photographing every morsel of food that graced my stomach! So I thought let's do a WIAW anyway- coz you know- living on the edge and all!!

In all honesty, I did not have a single spare second to type up a WIAW post yesterday and this left me feeling a little guilty and upset that I couldn't produce a post.

But then I thought about why I could not produce a post and the fact that I am a senior highschool student currently studying for year 12 WACE exams, doing all 6 possible ATAR courses as well as juggling school captain, other commitments and a part-time job.. well I decided to give myself a break.

And then I had to let myself have a good, long, hard look at what is realistically achievable when it comes to blog posts on the weekly.

So, to keep you in the loop I've decided that around 2-3 (or even maybe 1 some weeks) blog posts a week is a reasonable and enjoyable amount that I can adhere to and I also want to make the majority of those recipe posts (getting back to my roots and all!)

No, I'm not disappearing off the blog face, I'm simply toning down to what I think is a reasonable fun-load (because blogging is not work, therefore not work-load ;) for me at this current period in my life!

Ok, what should have been a short intro, turned long intro- let's get onto the FOOOOD!

Thanks as always to Peas and Crayons for creating this link and all the other bloggers to help host the link-up each week!

Breakfast: 7:30am
Wednesday started off lovely with a little Blogilates workout followed by preparing both breakfast, recess and lunch (forgot how hectic school mornings are!)

For brekky I whizzed together a green smoothie:
 With frozen banana, mango, spinach, kale, greek yoghurt and water:
 And drank that alongside some delicious cashew fudge bites:
 Cashew butter + oats + chia seeds + wholegrain low-sugar cheerios + almond milk
 Wonderful fuel for the school day ahead!!

Recess snack: 11:00am
 Yes, the peas are back. And I am loving it! :D

Lunch: 1:40pm
Completed maths, chemistry and was ready for some food!
 A big salad with chopped carrot, capsicum, cherry tomatoes, corn, spinach, fresh corainder and garlic tofu- deee-lish!

Afternoon snack: 3:45pm
After school I was a little ravenous (paired with not too keen to immediately dive into my homework). Enter snack:
 Chopped fuji apple with crisp red grapes:
 Dinner: 6:45pm
I was not feeling creative or cook-y (new word, embrace it! ;) at all for dinner so here is the delicious delight I threw together in a matter of minutes:
A avocado and baked bean jaffle with two poached eggs atop the remaining avocado and topped with the remaining baked beans with a side of sauteed eggplant and mushrooms on top of a bed of spinach!

Just what I needed.

Glass of ice cold soy milk- just to place me in the comfortably full range (I hate finishing dinner still hungry!)

I thought I might just slip it in there that it was also my birthday on Tuesday (17!!) and I did in fact celebrate with some oat-y pancakes and cherry fro-yo- happy days!!

Your turn:
What's your go-to quick and healthy lunch for in-a-rush mornings?
Favourite way to eat tofu? I feel like I need to experiment with it a bit more as I'm sort of set in my ways at the moment.
What would be your ultimate birthday breakfast? As a kid I probably would say something like ice cream and pancakes... and now that's kinda what I have!!

I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your day- don't be too hard on yourself (I know I always expect a heck of a lot more of myself than I should do!) do something you love and as always; EAT SOMETHING DELICIOUS!! Bye for now friendly friends! :D


  1. Yummy! All this food looks delicious, especially those smoothies. I am huge fan of smoothies and Green drink right from my childhood! My grandmother used to give us greens in form of these smoothies. Now I have started making these yummy health drinks for my kids.

    1. Larry,
      I can't believe you had it in your childhood! That's so cool- as it is only now becoming such a big trend! So cool that your kids love them too!!
      Thanks for commenting and have a great day :D
