Happy Wednesday! Did you have lots of fun flipping pancakes last night? Anyone try out the recipe I posted? It felt weird not to eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday but of course I had my fill on Monday night instead.
Every year pancake day reminds me how much I love them and how easy they are to make – I need to make them more than an annual occurence for sure!
If you’re looking for some new meal ideas, check out the other WIAW posts on Peas and Crayons – where the fabulous Jenn hosts the party every week.
What I love about WIAW (apart from looking at all the other amazing-looking eats) is how much I learn from looking at what I eat.
This week is no exception. These are my eats from Saturday,when I was supposed to be working in the office all day.. Obviously I can prepared with:
All of my eats to help me power through – vegetable soup, frozen cherries, cashew butter, cacao nibs, a beond bar, yoghurt and apple.
But I was called out of the office super early in the day, meaning I had to improvise a little..
Breakfast: A Bounce Vitality Lift Pecan and Cashew ball and a black coffee
To be fair, this did keep me going for a little while as I walked around Bristol city centre on a job. Then I became really quite hungry and had to grab a pick me up while I filed copy.
Snack: Cafe Nero biscotti and herbal tea. Note: Coffee is much better for dunking biscotti in.
After I finished filing it was time to head home and I was so excited about the prospect of real food.
Couldn’t go a day without my beloved apple, nut butter and cacao nibs
And yes I did cheer myself up by using the Toy Story mug and bowl. Even though the mug is toddler sized. Super strong berry tea!
James and I did a few chores and relaxed at home for the rest of the afternoon before I started preparing dinner.
Dinner: Spinach, cucumber, tomato, avocado with olive oil and balsamic with cod and sweet chilli sauce
Recently I’ve been eating my dinner from a bowl. It sounds odd but it really enhances the flavour – you get the sweet chilli sauces mixing with the spinach and the olive oil and balsamic adding a little zing to the salmon. So tasty.
Dessert: Defrosted frozen cherries with pecan caramel swirl ice cream
This tasted absolutely amazing but I was still hungry so a little later I went back into the kitchen and made myself a little plate of treats.
Snack: Iced rich fruit slices, pistachio halva and Pulsin’ Bliss Bar chunks
Lesson learned – not filling up on fruit and veggies leads to my menu being filled up with too many packet foods! Oh and I think I may have failed with Jenn’s ‘Love you veggies’ party.. just about got my five a day in there I think.
