What I Ate Wednesday 01.07.15

I’m still trying to remember to film, take my camera out and take photos for What I Ate Wednesday so please excuse the poor quality of some of the things I have captured today.

Breakfast

Bagel

Apologies, this is the same breakfast as I had last week and I couldn’t take a nice picture again!! I will get better at this, I promise! It was a Tesco version of the Cinnamon and Raisin Bagel today with Philadelphia cream cheese and fresh blueberries also from Tesco. I like their Atlantic blueberries as they are consistently nice.

Lunch

Korean style chicken

My friend made a Korean style chicken dish today, which is similar to Khao Mun Gai. It is boiled chicken with garlic and ginger and served with a sticky egg rice, broccoli and pickled radish. My friend told me that in Korea the chicken is eaten first with vegetables and the rice is eaten afterwards.

Dinner

Bacon Avocado Salad

I had a fairly healthy dinner apart from the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and crispy bacon. The avocado, boiled egg and bistro leaves with beetroot were the less naughty part of this dinner. With the heatwave were are currently experiencing, I didn’t fancy anything too heavy.

Snack

Sausage Roll

I was so hungry before lunch so I had a large sausage roll from the local bakery. I really should be eating well as I am going on holiday this month and will need to wear a swim suit. Argh!!

What I Ate Wednesday 24.06.15

Welcome to my first ever ‘What I Ate Wednesday’! As I mentioned in my last post, ‘My Monday Meals’ is no longer *sheds a tear*… Only joking! New is better. Don’t forget to check out my YouTube video below to see everything I ate today.

Breakfast

Bagel

I’ve been stuck in a bit of breakfast rut at the moment and have the same thing every single day. It’s not particularly healthy either so I probably need to change the menu. I had a New York Co Cinnamon and Raisin Bagel with Philadelphia cream cheese. I tried these fresh blueberries from Iceland and I’m not sure if it was just a dodgy batch but I wasn’t that impressed. They haven’t stayed fresh for long and tasted like perfume. (Sorry about the picture quality. I forgot to take a picture!)

Lunch

Khao Mun Gai

My mum made a traditional Thai meal today, Khao Mun Gai. It is boiled cornfed chicken with garlic and ginger steamed rice and a chilli soybean sauce. In Thailand this is commonly eaten with sliced cucumber but we ran out so we had broccoli instead.

Dinner

Pizza Express

I fell asleep at my mum’s house and woke up 10 minutes after I was supposed to be meeting a friend. This meant that I was late to meet her and didn’t get home until 5.45pm. As the children had all the leftover cottage pie, Andy and I had a less healthy dinner. We shared a Pizza Express Sloppy Giuseppe from the freezer. I should have had a side salad with my meal but I was pretty exhausted as Heath woke up every 1-2 hours from 11pm-5am and then from that point he decided he was no longer tired!

Snack

I was a bit naughty today and had two unhealthy snacks. At 10ish am I was so hungry as I’d had an early breakfast. I should have had had an apple but decided I needed a Cadbury’s Lu bar as it tasted better with my Dragonfly Tea which was Vanilla Rooibos. If you are pregnant and are looking for a caffeine free alternative, I would definitely recommend this.

In the evening, I had a decaf Nespresso with Tesco’s Finest Sticky Toffee Pudding. Naughty!
