Hi everyone! Geez! I cannot believe that it is Wednesday already. Does anyone know where the time is going. It’s almost as if someone has there finger on the fast forward button.
So like every Wednesday it is time to start the epic train of food porn that is . My contribution to the party this week consists of Monday’s eats- lets get started!
This particular morning I had to drop Alfie off at the train station so he could make it to work on time. This meant getting up at 5 am! To be fair it wasn’t such an onslaught as I made sure that I got enough sleep for the day ahead but it was still a but of a shock to the system where my eating habits were concerned.
After dropping Alfie off at the station I ate an unpictured banana with some chai tea with soya milk before heading to the gym where I did my new strength routine. I’m loving my new workouts already, Monday was an upper body day. The DOMS set in soon after, I will have to share my new routine with you soon.
Once freshened up and dressed it was time for breakfast number 2. I had defrosted the last of my Orange and Cranberry Hot Cross Buns from Easter and had them topped with vegan spread and blueberry and blackcurrant jam with strawberries and a chopped apple on the side and more tea.
This tided me over for a while, but as soon as it hit 1 pm my poor stomach was ready for its next feast. I decided to make a warm salad using mixed leaves, red kidney beans, cannellini beans, green beans, tomatoes and mushrooms with a green pesto sauce.
This salad was pretty special! I was just sad that I didn’t make a bigger serving.
Later in the afternoon I snacked on two apples and some very addicted spicy BBQ almonds that I picked up in Tesco.
Earlier that morning I had marinated some tempeh in some mirrin, sesame oil and soya sauce and baked it till it was crisp in the oven for dinner. I served it alongside some steamed greens and roasted parsnip chips with some ketchup!
I just love how the outside of the tempeh goes al crispy, so delicious!
After dinner I curled up in bed with a movie and snacked on two of my from my test batch for the Cookie Exchange with more chai tea.
I seem to be quite addicted to my chai tea at the moment- love it! Of course I also drank shed loads of water, a summer berry drink that you dilute and green tea too.
This week so far is going pretty well. On Monday I finished the design template for our Save the Dates and headed to Hobby Craft for some card supplies to test which will work best. I cannot wait to print them out and see how they look. Yesterday I finally finished the first draft of my thesis. Although the entire thing is still pending corrections it is such a relief to know that the main bulk of the work is out of the way now.
How are your weeks shaping up?
What is your current food addiction? Any tea addicts out there?
