WIAW #67 Pepping ALL the meals!

Hidy folky folks!
Popping in super fast with this weeks WIAW!!! YAY! So much to do and so little time, so.... that was my intro!
Of course, don't forget to head on over to Peas and Crayons for the awesome link-up party and check out what everyone else has been nom-ing on!

Now- onto the eats!!!
(This is a feature of a full day of eats from Monday- a hectic day of school and then work... which means a lot of pre-preparing most of my meals :)
Breakfast: 7:25am
Breakfast was pretty much the onle meal I didn't prepare ahead of time for this Monday... and it was simply because all I had to do was cut two slices of bread, spread em' with almond butter and top with banana slices and toast!
Alongside some mango fro-yo (handful of frozen mango chunks whazzed up with a few scoops of greek yoghurt)
I can't get over how good this tastes!
Also, there's a story with the yoghurt. You see I've only ever bought 0% and 2% yopghurt and then, without realising it I bought the full fat greek stuff. I will admit I had a little freak out... and I will also admit I don't like the taste as much- it's not as tangy/ creamy. (Pit's proabbly the different brands; Chobani you are awesome!!)
Enough thinking about yoghurt though when you have this bad boy in your mouth!!

Snack: 11:00am

Lunch: 1:15pm
Salad prepped ahead of time so it was an easy grab and go in the morning:

All the raw chopped veg (spinach, tomato, capsicum, cucumber, beetroot and cabbage) with some gingerbread-y spiced roasted black beans.
So much yum! And took wuite a long time to consume as well. lots of chewing!

Snack: 3:35pm
Straight back from school, jump into work clothes and nosh down this snack:

A cut up nashi pair and a beautifully ripe persimmon.
I love fruit. Nature's candy :)
Dinner: 7:40pm
Back from my shift, utterly starving (it is a workout guys!) and here lies a plate of deliciousness already prepared for me. Thanks past Stephanie, you rock!
You're welcome future Stephanie, I think you're pretty cool too.
Alrighty, moving on. ;) This was some roasted brussels and broc roasted in coconut oil and then also some leftover pumpkin and sweet tater which was just roasted in regular oil, with some tri-coloured quinoa.

So tasty, and soooo good eaten cold. (Cold pumpkin roasted is out-of-this-world! Especially the bits near the skin... it remind me of kabocha! Sad face.)
Of course that wasn't quite enough for my hungry, raging body, so I also snack on some dried dates and unsalted cashews. Then I was done. :)

Aaaaaand that's what I ate!

Apart from feeling flustered from all the rushing about, it was all pretty delicious stuff.

What about you?
Do you ever pre-prepare breakfast? I do sometimes, but it;'s usually my lunches and dinners that I make-ahead.
Are you a fan of nashi pears? I'm still deciding on this one. I'm not too sure on the texture, it kind of freaks me out- so watery!
Cold pumpkin? Yay/nay? You already know my thoughts on this one. :)

Hungry for more? Head on over to Peas and Crayons!


  1. I have never heard of nashi pears. I'm fascinated, and also the opposite when it comes to yogurt. I like the full fat version best. It's where all the delicious flavor is. :)

    Happy WIAW and thanks for linking up.

    1. I hear that a lot about full-fat yoghurt, so I'm thinking I just got a dud brand... maybe I should try some others?

  2. Hey Steph, recent research has shown that full-fat dairy products may actually be the healthiest choice and that saturated fat does not cause heart disease. Once I made the switch to full-fat yogurt, I never went back. Here are some articles you may be interested in:

    Basically, don't freak out about the yogurt--it's totally fine!

    1. Anonymous,
      I have heard similar things and it makes me happy :) I suppose it's just that little negative part of me that won't let go, you know? It's getting better though!! :)
      Thanks for all those articles- I appreciate it a lot!!
      Have a wonderful day :)

  3. Wow.. Thats totally healthy eating... Big applause to you girl.

    1. Anonymous,
