WIAW #55- Hectic day eats!

Hello there, lovely lovelies!
Yep, as usual, IT'S WEDNESDAY ALREADY!?! Is the thought coursing through my brain currently and as usual after re-checking my computer calender I am assured once again that it is in fact Wednesday! Time flies when you're having fun studying like a looney!

Any who, this post isn't about studying (we can't have too much fun here, guys!) this post is about food! Glorious food! In the style of a day of eating... in other words WIAW!! As usual, thanks a whole bunch of grapes to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for creating and hosting this link-up party. Now, FOOD!

Today's WIAW is a snapshot into what I ate Tuesday- a very, very, VERY busy day!!

As exciting as becoming champion girl for cross country was... the cold, sometimes wet early morning trainings aren't always that flash. So why do I still enjoy them so much? :) I had to be up and out of bed at around 6 where I had my pre-training snack:
 Banana +
 Nut butter =
 Best sandwich ever!
Definitely got me roaring through training (from 7:00am- 8:00am)
After training I had to rush to an early class (Tuesday's are the only day of the week where I have to start at 8:00am- we have this thing called period 0, so we can have 2 hours of cooking in Food Science class) So I scoffed my brekky on the way to my class room- which was some choc protein overnight oats- no pic, sorry! :)

Snack: 11:00am
After running around like a mad thing I was finally able to have recess:
Frozen peas in a pot!

Lunch: 1:40pm
Then, can you believe it, I also had PE on that day! More running!! So by 1:40pm I was ready for lunch- I've never loved the sound of our school bell so much.
 A quinoa salad with coconut oil roasted sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts and eggplant along with some spinach:
 NOM! This was eating pretty fast!

Snack: 4:00pm
I was not surprised at all when I returned home from my hectic day STARVING! So I chopped up an apple and some rockmelon (best rockmelon I've ever had!) and poured myself a mug of soy milk:

And then I drove (yep, still driving- haven't ruined any cars yet!) with my mum to my flute lesson and promptly returned home to my beautiful pile of homework :)

Dinner: 6:45pm
And of course I was starving again by the time dinner rolled around, so this dinner was a mix and match of everything I felt like!!
 A piece of rye bread, toasted and spread with hommus, topped with 2 poached eggs:
Some no-added salt baked beans stirred into some sauteed onions, capsicum, garlic, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and tomato paste:
 And some mashed avocado topped with organic blue maize tortilla chips:
 Kinda weird, but totally hit the spot!
I was still hungry of course and had a scoop of greek yoghurt and some walnuts as well straight afterwards :D

That's what I ate!
Yeh, it was hectic but I still ate some awesome stuff and I think it's days like this that make me truly appreciate extra time for myself!

Your turn:
What do you eat when life gets hectic?
Best sandwich ever? Sometimes I can't get enough of PB and apple sandwiches either!
Ever jazz up a simple tin of baked beans? Usually I just throw in some frozen peas and corn... this day I was really craving sauteed onions for some reason.. the sweetness maybe?

Have an absolutely fabulous day and eat something incredibly delicious!! Bye friends :D

  2. Hi Steph! New to your blog and loving it so far. Everything in this post looks delicious! Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are still the best for me. Hands down! Grilled cheese pretty much rocks too :)

    1. Mindi,
      Am so with you on both those sandwiches- definitely in my top 5! Thanks for reading!!

  3. Love the idea of the eggs on hummus toast! I don't usually add a spread. Must try that one!

    1. Laura,
      Sometimes I just need a little 'cheesey' flavour! Sometimes I leave it plain... or with vegemite and avocado :)
