WIAW #60 Deliciousness!

Happy Wednesday friendly friends! Do you know what makes this Wednesday extra happy? For me at least? Last exam! Yes! So stoked and ready to crash tomorrow... before heading back to school next week for the last 3 weeks of term. Yeah, I don't understand either!

Any who, along with studying like a boss I've also been eating like one too, because using one's brain requires lots of energy!! On that note, here's everything I ate on Tuesday, a rest day from exams :). Thanks as usual to Peas and Crayons for this awesome WIAW link-up each week!

Pre-run: 6:30am
I took advantage of not having to be at school by 8, so slept in a little bit and had a lovely 40 minute treadmill run (it's coming into Winter over here in Aus, in case you were wondering about the treadmill scenario) and because I woke up hungry, I consumed 2 dates prior to my run at 7:00am.

Breakfast: 8:15am
After stretching, showering and guzzling water my breakfast was cooked and I was HUNGRY!
 In that delightfully yellow mug was a big serving of choc protein steel cut oats with some of my home-made cashew butter scattered throughout and on top. It was extremely delicious!
 Warm, gooey, chocolate-y... what more could you ask for?

Lunch: 12:30pm
I wasn't hungry for hours after breakfast but as lunch time rolled round I knew I should probably eat something to keep that metabolism chugging along and keep my body happy so I set about making something I just really felt like:
 A big ol' stir fry!
 Firstly I sauteed off some garlic and onion with sesame oil, then I added in some chopped brocoli, capsicum, eggplant, zucchini and mushrooms for a few mins until tender, next I threw in some peas, corn, satay tofu, spinach and brown rice vermicelli (that had soaked in boiling water for a couple of minutes) and mixed it all together on high heat until combined and delicious!
 Happy Tummmy!

Snack: 4:15pm
We had a literature excursion type thing scheduled for this night at the theater to see a play called Glengarry Glen Ross, so I ate a pretty hefty snack to tide me over until around 8:00pm when the play finished.
 Chopped cantaloupe, granny smith apple and a big mug of soy milk:

Dinner: 8:00pm
After the play (which was...interesting. The actors were amazing, but I don't think I fully understood what was going on... and every second word was a swear word) my stomach was growling and I took out these falafel type things I had made that afternoon:
 Red kidney beans + lentils+cumin+paprika+ginger+pepper+steamed mashed pumpkin and potato- all whazzed up together in a mini food processor and baked in the oven (180 degrees Celsius) for around 40 mins.
 Very tasty and filling!

And that's what I ate this past Tuesday!

What about you?
Do you normally have a pre-workout snack? It sort of depends for me. My stomach can do just fine without one but I feel like my energy levels are significantly better with a little sustenance inside.
Fan of stir fry?
Favourite portable dinner?

Still hungry for more? Head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else has been nom-ing on! Bye for now guys, have a great day and as always, eat something delicious! Bye! :D


  1. That stir fry looks and sound amazing.

    Happy WIAW. Thanks for linking up.

    1. Meghan,
      Thanks so much, it turned out a lot better than I expected (having just thrown random things in a pan! :)

  2. I like a pre-workout snack, but I don't have to have it. I find it usually gives me a bit of an energy boost, but it's not absolutely essential. :)

    1. I think I'm basically he same, I do notice a little boost in energy but I'm fine without it :)

  3. I agree, that stir fry looks so good! do you not live in a dorm at school?!
    and I work out in the mornings too, so I usually don't eat a pre workout snack. I eat pretty late at night too

    1. Masala girl,
      Oh no, I'm in year 11 at highschool :) and also here in Aus we don't really have dorms for college/university so I probably won't live in one then either!
      Thanks for your comment about the stir-fry, it sure was pretty tasty!!

    2. ah gotcha! good luck on exams!! :)
