I don't generally go into too much detail about my day to day life, mainly because I think it's sort of... boring. However I enjoy reading other blogger's 'Day in the life..' posts. Sooo I got to thinking that I might just do one so you awesome readers can have a glimpse into a typical (non-school) day.
My day usually begins around 2:30am when I am awoken by something or other (or maybe my brain is confused because I've finished the best part of my sleep (between 10pm-2am)) before I am back off to sleep for another good 3 hours or so. Then I am up at the crack of dawn (not really seeing as it's usually 5:30am and pitch black) where I turn on my lamp and read for about an hour (don't want to go crashing about in the kitchen waking everyone up!)
At around 6:30/7:00am I'm up and adam! My belly is yelling for food and that's the first place I'm headed. Today I wanted ice cream... then it started raining. I still wanted ice cream, but also something warm:)
Rich chocolate cheesecake ice cream in an almost empty jar of almond butter with a cinnamon cake in a mug!
1 frozen banana
2 tablespoons of greek yoghurt (optional if vegan/dairy free)
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon choc protein powder
1/3 cup wholemeal spelt flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Chopped unsalted mixed nuts (I used about 4 different nuts chopped)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
chia gel (1 teaspoon chia seeds mixed with 1 tablespoon milk (I used oat milk)
1 teaspoon olive oil
extra oat milk (about1/4-1/3 cup)
1. To make ice cream place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy (I had to stop about 5 times to scrape down sides)
3. For cake, mix together the dry ingredients and whisk the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Whisk in together
How I enjoyed my brekky:
breakfast fail) then I went for a run (about 45 mins after brekky- gotta let the food digest)
I ran for about 20 mins- don't really know how far, probably around 5K, I don't generally run for the distance or calories burned.. just for the fun of it and I have really restless legs that constantly need to be on the move!
After running/showering/dressing mum and I went grocery shopping where I bought a lot of fresh food and also restocked some tinned beans/tomatoes/ oats/ soy milk etc.
When we arrived back I organized everything away. Then did my weekly 'waste nothing!' mission:
I had tons of fresh corn leftover:
I also had some over-ripe bananas:
But I still had the leftover peels etc. Not to worry!
My tummy was telling me it was lunch time now! Unfortunately I didn't snap a picture.. but I did snap yesterday's lunch:
grilled veggie sandwich! I added something to this one however to make it extra special:
While making lunch I forgot to use my avocado (it needed to be used today!) and I hate waste.. soo...
And also used my ninja knife skills to take the seed out (axe into it, turn it and pull it out!)
Down With Love- such a good movie!
Then Ash was due for her yearly needles at the vet so mum and I walked her up:
To finish off the day I roasted some veggies for dinner (I love veggies so so much!)
Simply placed in a bowl with spinach and some garlic tofu:
I hope everyone has a restful and relaxing Sunday! Bye! :D
