WIAW #56 What I eat when I NEED FOOD!

Hello, hello friendly faces!
It's that time of the week again! The time where the week is halfway through, my brain is fried once more with wonderful chemistry calculations and maths problems and I'm in the mood for some pictures of food!

As always thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for linking this awesome weekly link-up and now lets party! WIAW style (with a full day of Tuesday eats- my busiest day of the week! :)

Pre- breakfast: 6:30am
Up and at-em' at 6:00am to be ready for cross country training before school by 7:00am, stuffing a banana in my mouth to make sure I get through the grueling hour of hard running/ easy pace exercises for an hour.
Forgot a picture of my banana. It was yellow and bendy. Good?
My early mornings mean I also have to prep brekky for after training and my recess and lunch for school:
Line up of Tupperware!
Breakfast: 8:00am
After training (and sweating and dying :) I inhaled these delicious choc protein balls that I made the night before and stuck in the freezer (hence the icicles)
In the mix was some rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, 2 chopped dates, 1 scoop choc protein powder, 1 teaspoon choc flax & berries powder- all mixed together. Then combined with some slightly heated peanut butter (1 HEAPED tablespoon) and some almond milk. So GOOD!

Snack: 11:00am
A little pot of peas. My obsession with peas hasn't -and I suspected will never- go away. Yummy little peas :)
Lunch: 1:40pm
Luckily for me I also had PE today so that was lovely on my legs :)
Luckily I had a delicious lunch to tuck into before my stomach decided it was hungry enough to eat itself:
Also prepped the night before: A quinoa salad with oven roasted eggplant, mushrooms, capsicum and zucchini, rubbed with garlic and paprika, some chili tofu and baby spinach leaves.
Very tasty and filling!
Snack: 4:00pm
Before rushing off to a flute lesson I quietened the growl in my stomach once more with a chopped fuji apple and a mug of soy milk:

Dinner: 6:45pm
By dinner the stomach was at it again and I was also really craving a baked sweet potato with coconut butter (I feel like I haven't had this in yonks!). However I didn't have any coconut butter... and wasn't sure how coconut oil would taste instead... Luckily I had a big bag of dessicated coconut!!
Coconut + food processor+ a heck of a long time whazzing in the bathroom with the door closed (and me in the kitchen doing other stuff) = COCONUT BUTTER! (If you want a better tutorial, please visit this page :)
Even better when it's poured into a what-was-once-Mexican-salsa jar ;)
Baked sweet potato:
Take a look at all that sweet potato sugar splurging out! :)
Some homemade baked beans (onion- caramelised with some olive oil + capsicum, tomato, then adding in some red kidney beans and no-added-salt tomato paste= deliciousness!)
 Some oven roasted broccoli (I steam it first then place in the oven (180 degrees celsius) for 20 mins)
And a small bowl of greek yoghurt:
I was pretty hungry if you can't tell!
I was still not 100% satisfied after dinner so I had a small handful of walnuts to round out the day- yum:)
A day in the life of my stomach!

What about you?
What do you bring for breakfast if you won't be at home? portability is kinda tricky for most of my brekky favourites.
Favourite packed lunch?
Favourite after dinner snack? I always find either some raw nuts, greek yoghurt or glass of soy milk seem to stop the hunger pangs for good after dinner.

Still hungry for more? Check out what everyone else has been eating over at peas and Crayons! Have a great day friendly friends, eat something yummy and smile :D Bye!!


  1. I want the banana picture. Sorry it's a thing for me.

    Happy WIAW!

    1. Meghan,
      Haha- it's totally a thing for me too! How could I have forgotten to snap a pic of my delicious banana?!?

  2. That coconut butter looks amazing especially on the sweet potato! I'll definitely have to give that a try! I love that it's in an empty salsa jar as well! :)

    1. Cookie,
      Coconut butter is one of those things that I think are too good to be true- and then it is!!
      Also, I laughed a little when I realised that was the only jar I had left! ;)
