Good evening beautiful souls,
The other day I looked back to the beginning of my blog and discovered I use to write What I Eat In A Day posts, who knew aha! I had totally forgotten and these used to be some of my favourite posts to write too! So I’m going to start writing them again and I hope you enjoy!
This is what I ate on Monday the 5th:
I got up early to try and get an emergency doctors appointment so I just bought an Innocent smoothie on my way to keep me going till breakfast after the doctors. On the way back I really felt like treating myself (I always do when I am ill haha – anyone else the same?!) and so I popped into our local Sainsbury to buy an avocado and a fresh baguette. Whilst there I saw a nice barley, broccoli, bean ready-meal thing and thought it looked delicious, but instead of buying pre-made food I decided to have a go at making something similar myself and bought some more healthy foods.
Once I got home at about 9.50 I finally made this tasty breakfast I had been soo craving! I toasted the baguette and then spread some vegan cream cheese on that we had left before adding the avocado which I had mashed up with some salt, pepper, chilli flakes & lemon juice. Next I topped it with some rocket salad and pomegranate seeds. To drink I just finished the Innocent smoothie I had bought earlier that morning.
Tip: Pomegranate is a fruit that literally goes with soo many things – start experimenting what you can add it too!
The way I usually cook is by making things up ass I go along and this was no different. I should have checked what exactly went into that tasty looking ready meal in Sainsbury, but I didn’t so I just ended up creating a veg & barley mix. It was quite tasty and full of goodness but I don’t think my aim in recreating what I’d seen had quite worked haha. I’d made quite a lot though so it’s lasted us for another two meals which is great when you can’t always be bothered to cook. So if you’re wondering what went in – pearl barely (cooked in veg stock), green lentils, black beans, kale, broccoli, carrots, spinach, onion & garlic. To drink I had a glass of squash.
I always look to find low sugar crisps and I encourage you all to do the same. It’s crazy how much added sugars are put into savoury foods! Just pic up a couple of different brands and look at the of which sugars per 100g – you might surprise yourself. Anyway most Kettle’s aren’t too bad so they’re usually one of the brands we have in the house for snacks. I nibbled on these throughout the day and on some red grapes which I’m obsessed with at the moment but forgot to take a picture of.
Jessica had wanted me to try some of her Chinese food for ages so we finally had these fast food style noodles which only took a couple of minutes to cook and then you just mix your sauces together and top with peanuts and pickled vegetables. I enjoyed it, it was kind of peanut buttery. The only thing I wasn’t too keen on was the spice; I mean I like spicy food but I maybe shouldn’t have put all the chilli spice in haha.
And there you have it – what I eat in a day! Hope you’ve all had a good day lovelies!
