WIAW #58 Weird but yum!

Hi there friendly friends! Yup, it's Wednesday again (I can barely believe it!) and I'm currently gearing up for my Semester 1 exams (totally just wrote eggs instead of exams.. anyone else think my brain is fried... like an egg?) which are taking place next week!!

So with a brain filled with facts and trigonometric functions and the names of arteries and veins surrounding the heart and the structural formulas of hydrocarbons... I bring the simplicity and comforting vibes of food, WIAW style! As always thanks to Peas and Crayons for hosting this awesome link-up!

Now let's take a look at everything that found its way into my belly on yesterday!
Pre-breakfast: 5;45 am
I had a cross country meeting early this morning instead of training but I still wanted to get a run in before the big race on Thursday, so it was a bright and early start for me Tuesday morning.
On the food note- I had two dates before a 30 min treadmill run. :)

Breakfast: 6:30 am
After my run (which felt pretty good, caught up on a few blogs too!) I quickly put together my favourite breakfast sandwich with my home-made spelt bread, peanut and coconut butter and sliced banana, toasted in a sandwich press:
Warm, gooey and filling, just the way I like it!
Eaten quite quickly as I didn't factor in my shower time/ getting ready for school after my run.
P.S. It was still pitch-black outside!!
Snack: 11:00am
After running around going to the meeting and then my period 0 (period before school starts) and then my next two periods... I was ready for some fooood!
And as usual my little pot of peas did not disappoint.
Lunch: 1:40 pm
Two more periods down (and a heck of a lot of studying- did I mention how much I love exam time?) the lunch bell finally rang and my stomach jumped for joy:
Lunch prepared the night before: rice plus (rice, buckwheat, wild rice, black sesame seeds and quinoa) with some oven roasted beans and lentils, oven roasted capsicum, mushrooms and zucchini seasoned with pepper.
There was also some spinach at the bottom of this severely squished down container of yum!
Snack: 4:00 pm
Usually snack time is just before I have to rush off to my flute lesson but today I knew I had waaay too much study to do and opted to stay in and put my head down! After I had a snack first of course ;)
A delicious plate of fruit (persimmon and red grapes) with a sunshine yellow mug of soy milk. I love the colour yellow, so happy ;)
Dinner: 6:45 pm
Dinner was a mix-matched of random foods to satisfy all of my wants! In other words; perfection!
2 poached eggs over spinach and sliced avocado, topped with hommus with a side of crispy (slightly burnt ;) roasted potatoes and white sweet potato and a small bowl of plain greek yoghurt. Completely random, completely didn't work together... but separately it was pretty tasty!!
Of course I left the potatoes til' last. Best part of the meal!
After dinner I was still not completely satisfied and so warmed up a mug of almond milk until it was nice and warm, sipping on the sweet, creamy milk whilst I let my brain have a day dream after the day of strenuous exercise (in the form of study)

Aaaand that's what I ate. I will admit I probably needed a bit more fuel but I just didn't have the time/ energy/ mental capacity and all in all I was happy after all the delicious foods I nom-ed on this fine Tuesday!

Your turn:
Were you/ are you a studier? I know I am and I guess in reality that's a good thing!
Do you ever leave the best part of your meal until last? I literally didn't touch the potatoes until everything else was gone. I just wanted to savour them!
Ever like a warm mug of milk to end the day? Bring back childhood memories for me.

That's it from me today, I hope you all ate/ are eating something truly delicious and don't forget to head over to Peas and Crayons if you want to see what everyone else is nom-ing on! Bye!! :D


  1. Thanks for sharing your WIAW eats- I love WIAW posts and these linkups!
    I was definitely a studyier - I hated tests because of the fact that I became obsessive over them, always studying, etc. Papers were much more my jam.
    I tend ot either save my favorite part of the meal for last - or eat it first! It depends.
    Haven't had warm milk in ages. A few years ago I had some warm coconut almond and traditional almond milk with vanilla - but it's been a while!

    1. You sound exactly like me when it comes to studying! Also, if I'm super hungry and have 0 self control, I will eat the best bits first!! Warm coconut almond milk sounds so good, might have to look into that!

  2. I LOVE when I see people snacking on peas! I think they are one of the most underrated foods!

    1. Peas are amazing. I. am. obsessed. I also get some pretty weird looks when I get out my pot of peas at school... ahh well! ;)

  3. I always save the best for last when I eat! I wasn't much of a studier in school but somehow I made it out! LOL

    1. Cookie- lots of my friends aren't studiers and still seem to do mighty well- if only I was that kind of person :/ haha

  4. Ah, I am envious that you can read while being on the treadmill! I have always tried to do so, but I fear falling off the treadmill because I am not paying attention. I like your idea of adding hummus onto eggs! That sounds delicious and I am going to look into having that for myself. :)

    1. Julia,
      It's funny you said that, my friend asked me the exact same question and I hadn't even thought about it before... now I'm probably going to freak out! Also, hommus + eggs = joy :)
