Hello! Happy Wednesday everyone!!
Last week as I was scrolling through the weeks WIAW posts I came across one about comparing. Now, comparing is something WIAW is NOT about- however this was a clever post that used WIAW pictures they had taken from the same time last year to compare to their eats this year! I thought it seemed kind of cool and so why not give it a go myself?
So below is a snapshot into a typical day of eating for me (Monday) with a typical snapshot of eating from this time last year...
I wonder what has changed!
This time last year I was up bright and early (bright as in itch black and early) with a delicious big green smoothie:
(I seemed to like extreme close-ups??)
This time- this year ;) was quite amusing... it was another green smoothie!
This one was 1 frozen banana + 1 handful chopped frozen pineapple + 1 handful kale + 1 handful spinach + 3 scoops greek yoghurt + splash of water- whazzed until smooth!
Enjoyed with two toasted whole wheat crumpets spread generously with crunchy peanut butter :)
Super tasty and super filling- my kind of breakfast!
I'm a bit jealous of last years lunch because it looks pretty tasty:
Quinoa, steamed pumpkin, cherry tomatoes, lentils.... and a BERRY SAUCE!?! (Boy do I miss my random/creative days ;) It was literally just some frozen berries heated on the stove until sauce-like :)
In less exciting news- The current lunch:
One thing I already knew before having to look through my previous photos was that my afternoon snack of choice was fruit and soy milk.
Because it is still fruit and soy milk
A mandarin with some red grapes and a coke glass (so fancy, right?) filled with soy milk.
Fats forward to this year.... and not much has changed:
Once again I am envious of my dinner from last year as it included one of my very favourite sauces/ toppings/ whatever you want to call it:
Whole wheat pasta with red kidney beans mushrooms and steamed veg.
Sadly, I found no similarities between last years dinner and this years dinner (I honestly did not intentionally know how many similarities there would be between these two WIAW!!) however this dinner was mighty tasty:
Also, unlike last year, I've found a new love for an after dinner snack (last year was mainly raw nuts- which I still consume after dinner quite regularly!)
Warm almond milk with cinnamon!!
So I hope you found that a little interesting- I know I sure did! I find it quite funny how much I haven't changed over the year and I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little jealous of myself enjoying some of those glorious meals last year- I better fix that by making some of them soon!
What about you?
Do/ have your eating habits change/d dramatically over the course of a year?
Do you sometimes make completely random sauces for your salads... and then surprise yourself when they're actually good?
Favourite after dinner snack?
