It’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday post! I know I did one of these recently but I’m currently working on a few other posts which are taking a little bit longer (specifically some travel ones, so keep an eye out my fellow globetrotters!) and didn’t want to leave you guys hanging. Plus I always enjoy writing these posts, and you guys seem to enjoy reading them, so why not publish them more often.
I just came back to London after being away for nearly two weeks. The break was great but it meant that I didn’t get any work done, meaning that I now have to work extra hard on my dissertation. My days typically consist of working in coffee shops and parks; it could definitely be worst but I’m slowly losing my mind with this dissertation! It means that I need lots of brain food though, which you’ll see in this post. It’s also been very hot in London the past week, another factor which has impacted my eating habits. So without further ado, this is what I ate in a day last week:
I’m still completely obsessed with pancakes; I know I featured these in my last What I Ate Wednesday post but I’ve been having these bad boys every other day. The good news, I now have the recipe up! It’s super easy and pretty healthy (before you drown them in syrup…) so check them out right here.
As I mentioned in my previous WIAW post, I’m trying intermittent fasting. This means that I eat breakfast later than usual (around 9:30 or 10), meaning that there isn’t too big of a gap between breakfast and lunch, causing me to snack less. For lunch I’ve been loving salads; this warm weather has me craving fresh foods, which salads are perfect for. I know I wrote a blog post recently saying how much I really don’t like salads, but it seems that my taste buds have drastically changed in a short period of time; I’m genuinely enjoying salads right now. I think that’s largely down to the weather. This time I had a bed of spinach with cucumber, tomatoes, olives, chickpeas and a dressing made with hummus and lime juice.
I love baking and usually make a big batch of something at the start of the week to enjoy for a few days. These were some healthy chocolate chip banana cookies; perfect for when I’m feeling peckish.
For dinner on this day I had whole wheat pasta with courgette, kale, chickpeas, green pesto, onions and garlic. I made a huge pot of this to eat throughout the week; it’s simple to make and uses cheap ingredients.
