Hello loves! How are you all of this lovely day? I hope you are all having a great week. It’s the it’s that time of the week again where the best party in blog land is happening.
It’s time for WIAW of course!
So yesterday I woke up nice and early to fit in my planned yoga session. I decided not to use a podcast this time and just go with the flow and do my own thing. It was great and involved a lot of salutations, pigeon poses, runners lunges to really stretch out my legs. As it was feeling a bit nippy so I knew that oats were definitely in the cards for breakfast:
1/2 cup of oats, 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of soya milk, topped with hazelnuts, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and homemade pumpkin butter.
This huge bowl of creamy oats and 2 mugs of tea were really the perfect way to start my day. It was freezing outside…autumn is finally here! 🙂
By mid-morning hunger set in so I ate some unpictured rice cakes and an apple. Lunch time involved a lovely salad made using mixed lettuce leaves, cucumber, tomatoes, yellow pepper, carrot and raw beetroot. I made a dressing using mango chutney loosened with some water and mixed with some mixed herbs, vinegar and salt to dull down the sweetness a little. The tangy dressing with the earthy sweetness of the beetroot was really lovely.
In the afternoon my appetite returned in leaps and bounds so I snacked on a persimmon and some pan forte that I had bought in Florence. It’s made from dates and dried fruits mixed with nuts and spices- a bit like a huge Nakd bar I guess.
I found the persimmon on the market as they have been a little bit scarce in the supermarkets recently. I’m so glad that I picked some up though as they taste amazing, like always! 🙂
Right before my Body Pump class I snacked on an apple and a plum to keep me going till dinner. I don’t know what was wrong with me yesterday but my belly was like a bottomless pit. Rather than just ignoring my hunger pangs though I just rolled with it and gave my body the abundance of food that it seemed to need. I knew that everything that I was eating was good for me so there was no genuine reason why I should deny myself of anything, just because it felt like I was eating too much.
Geez! If only I thought this way a few years ago!
Dinner last night was a meag stir fry served with some Clearspring udon noodles in a yummy peanut flour sauce. The stir fry included onion, carrots, kabocha squash, aubergine, cauliflower and savoy cabbage in a sauce made form peanut flour, soy sauce, black rice vinegar and a bit of sweet chilli sauce. I’m now all out of peanut flour but luckily I’ve ordered a huge bag from iHerb. 😀
After this I found some room for a big pink lady apple and my belly was finally full!
Do you every have those days when you just want to eat and eat? How do you deal with this?
What is the best thing you ate this WIAW?
