Happy Wednesday! You know the drill by now, on Wednesday’s I publish ‘What I Ate Wednesday’ posts, where I show you what I eat on a typical day. The things I tend to eat on a daily basis change throughout the year, depending on the weather and what I’m craving at that point in time. As the weather is getting colder at the moment, I’m craving more hot meals. So here is what I eat in a day at the moment:
Not matter what time of year it is, I will always love pancakes for breakfast. I have pancakes at least once a week and I try to make them as nutritious as possible. You can find my recipe here, and this time I had my pancakes with granola, blueberries, almonds, cacao nibs and chocolate sauce. Not going to lie, I’m pretty proud with how this stack turned out!
I have a new lunch obsessions and it’s called chana masala. Chana masala has always been my go-to order when I got to an Indian restaurant, but I had never made it myself before. Turns out, it’s pretty easy. I added spinach to this batch to make it extra healthy and had it with some pita bread, mango chutney and cucumber. I actually made a big pot of chana masala at the start of the week and had it for several lunches throughout the week; it works great as a meal prep food.
I’ve found that because I’ve been exercising more lately (read all about me starting my fitness journey here) I tend to get hungry more often. So usually around 4pm my tummy starts rumbling and that’s when I start snacking. This time I went for toast with hummus and cucumber, which is filling and delicious. I’m not going to lie; some days I reach for chocolate when I’m in a snacky mood but hey, it’s all about balance.
It has taken me ages to perfect my couscous recipe but I think I’ve finally done it. In the past it has always turned out too dry but I’m finally happy with my recipe, I plan to share it soon! I had it for dinner with falafel and tahini sauce; a perfect cosy meal.
And that’s it! Let me know what foods you’re currently craving in the comments. And if you want to see more of what I eat on a daily basis, you can follow my Instagram account.
