Can you believe it is time for another WIAW? I think it should stand for ‘Wow, it’s another Wednesday’ although clearly that slightly misses the point on the whole what I ate thing .
Here are my eats from Saturday, you’ll see there are a few switches from my normal routine so it shouldn’t be too boring!
Also, if you’re interested in my previous WIAW posts, there’s now a tab on my homepage so you can find them easily. Or you can just click here.
WIAW is hosted by the lovely Jenn – go and check out what everyone else has been munching on!
I was booked in to try a new fitness session (review on the way) so had my tried and tested pre-new-workout breakfast.
Breakfast: Mixed berry Trek bar and a Yogi Tea Women’s Energy
After the workout I went for a walk around a nearby mall, which I don’t visit very often. I haven’t had a smoothie for I’m guessing about six years but I had an acute craving and decided to go with it, so visited Boost smoothie bar. I also visited the serve-yourself dried fruit and nut bar at Holland and Barrett and filled a large tub.
I actually intended to have some soup or a ‘proper’ lunch but I was so stuffed after eating that many nuts, goji berries, apple slices and dates that I didn’t need one. Have you tried stuffing dates with pecans? Incredible. I blame the combo for my unstoppable hand reaching into the tub way more than was needed!
After lunch I returned home, showered and walked into town to do some chores. I grabbed a free coffee from Waitrose on the way and took a picture of it by the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
Snack: A cup of black coffee
After walking around lots, I was so ready for a hearty dinner and got cooking as soon as I reached home. I snacked on some avocado and pretzels as I waited for it to be ready.
It was such a good dinner, really filling but still felt light and clean. The sweet chilli sauce gave an awesome kick to the salmon and the avocado was perfectly ripe. Yum!
After sitting in a blissed out state for a while, I decided to make myself dessert. I was home alone and it felt very decadent but why not?!
Dessert: A cup of Yogi Tea Women’s Power, fried apples with greek yoghurt, toasted pecans and almond butter. Plus more almond butter in a little of the leftover yoghurt.
I also enjoyed a little rum and raisin fudge right before bed.
It was such a good and yummy day but I’m also proud of the lack of cake/sweets, which I’m really trying to cut down on. Fingers crossed next week will be just as good, if not better
