What I Ate Wednesday #1

WIAW

I’ve really been enjoying other bloggers’ What I Ate Wednesday posts so I’ve decided to join in with the fun! This is what I ate yesterday.

I had a blackening banana to use up so I thought I’d put it out of its misery by having banana chocolate porridge for breakfast:

Lunchtime and I went for a tuna salad:

In the mix – tuna, a handful of peanuts, black pepper, some cherry tomatoes and scallions (spring onions). I followed this up with a rhubarb-flavoured yoghurt.

For my pre-run snack I had apple slices with a dollop of crunchy peanut butter:

I love this combination of salty and sweet. It’s also the perfect fuel for a workout.

For dinner I had baked rice with chicken and peppers. This is a really handy meal when I run before dinner as I can prep it before I go and then it’s ready for me when I get back!

Followed up by a homemade latte (shot of coffee, cup of hot milk, dash of vanilla extract, teaspoon of brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon) and two Nairn’s oat biscuits. I have to end dinner with something sweet!

For an evening snack I had a kiwi with a handful of walnuts. I ate it before I remembered that I needed to take a picture – still getting used to WIAW! But it wouldn’t have been a very interesting photo anyway. I should also say that breakfast, lunch and pre-run snack had accompanying cups of tea but I didn’t think anyone would be bothered seeing that ;)

So that’s my first What I Ate Wednesday post. Hope you enjoyed it!

What have you been eating lately? Bloggers, do you do WIAW?

    Apples and peanut butter are like my favorite sweet/salty combo of all time! and I like my peanut butter super crunchy! Do you ever eat apple + almond butter? Similar and equally delish!

      I actually prefer almond butter but it’s an expensive habit!

    I am one of those people who sneaks glances at other people’s shopping carts at the grocery store… therefore… I love WIAW! This was my first week joining in.

    I already have 10 million things I need to try from reading people’s posts today. Smores brownies, Halloumi cheese and peppered turkey bacon from Trader Joe’s. O.O

    I think I’m gonna have your coffee creation tonight. :) Sounds like a delicious way to end my day.

    Allow me to express how much I wish I knew how to make lattes at home! I’ve been spending WAY too much money on Starbucks, but my espresso machine is just so intimidating :(

    Andddd I’m a big WIAW fan :D

      It’s super easy! I just heat up the milk and use instant coffee to make a shot-sized amount of coffee – then mix with add-ins like sugar and spices.

    I absolutely love doing WIAW! It’s so fun to see what other bloggers are eating and to show StephSnacks readers that you can balance healthy foods along with some treats :-)
