For some reason I had it in my head that today was Wednesday so I was all ready to hit out with another ‘What I Ate Wednesday’ post. So you can imagine my annoyance when I realised it was actually Thursday. I honestly have no idea where this week is going (personally I blame all the studying I’ve been having to do this week. My brain is turning to mush!) However, I thought I would still write up a what I eat in a day post. After all, Wednesday isn’t the only day of the week that I eat.
APPLE & PEANUT GRANOLA WITH APPLE
Granola is one of the best breakfast foods out there and teamed with a bit of fruit and soya milk makes it all the more delicious. This granola is the apple and peanut one by Spoon. With no added sugar, this granola is sweetened with maple syrup and is much better for you than other shop bought granola. It proved the perfect fuel for a day of studying.
HOUMOUS WITH CARROT STICKS
I bet you have all missed seeing this classic Elijah lunch. I really do need to start branching out more! Today’s rice salad was made up with Tilda firecracker rice, pepper and cucumber. I’ve also recently been adding hemp seeds into my salads which helps give an extra boost of protein and omega 3. I also had the usual carrot sticks with morrocan houmous.
By the time dinner rolled around I was 100% done with studying and getting hungry, so when my Dad yelled at me from the down the stairs I could not have been happier. Tonight’s dinner was chicken curry complete with white rice. I cannot for the life of me remember what type of curry sauce it was but all that matters was that it was delicious.
SALTED DATE CARAMEL RAW MILLIONAIRE BITES
Dessert was a sad affair. I had bought these salted date caramel raw millionaire bites by Livia’s Kitchen in Planet Organic when I was down in London at the beginning of April and they are honestly one of my favourite things at the moment. Tonight I ate my last two. I am seriously contemplating ordering them online because they are divine. These are a slightly better for you, nutritious twist on the classic millionaire shortbread. They are ‘a simple oat base covered with a gooey date filling, topped with a thin layer of delicious raw organic dark chocolate.’ Truly delightful and indulgent but without all of the added sugar.
