Hello lovelies! It’s Wednesdayyyyyy!!!! How are your weeks shaping up? I’m having a rather busy one with so many things on the go, but it’s all going towards something super exciting, so I guess that it’s all good!
A big thank you to Jenn for hosting as always.
This week’s WIAW is taken from yesterday’s eats. I was teaching a haematology lab yesterday and the students had to make smears of their own blood samples. This meant that I had to demonstrate the finger prick test to them and how to prepare their blood smears on their slides. The lab was a pretty mess by the end of the day. the students seemed to enjoy all of the gorey blood though. Although one porr girl actually fainted…bless!
To save me from passing out I decided that it was best to have a hearty breakfast of banana bread oats made loosely using my Banana Bread Batter recipe. I topped it with some Sunbutter, dried cranberries and shredded coconut- one of my favourite combos at the moment. 😀 it seemed to do the trick though as I felt well enough to demonstrate the test and didn’t feel at al queasy at the sight of my own blood.
This also worked as perfect fuel for my mid morning workout in the gym before class. I did a 10 minute interval warm up on the bike, a 30 minute hill climb on the cross trainer and a 10 minute session on the step machine plus 10 minutes of ab and core work.
For lunch I raided the freezer again and this time found a bag of Carrot and Red Lentil Soup…one of mt favourites. The lentils act as a great thickener and make the soup extra creamy! I also ate a Peacan Pie Nakd bar, some purple grapes and an apple.
Since was teaching way into the afternoon I didn’t have time for a snack so as soon as I got home dinner was my only priority as I was starving. I fried off some sliced tofu that I had marinated in char siu sauce and soy sauce and stir fries some Chinese leaves, green beans, carrots and red peppers for a quick but tasty dinner. The added sunflower seeds added a extra crunchy element…yum!
For dessert and for some study fuel I munched on some sliced apples and grapes with a a dipping sauce made from peanut flour, cocoa powder. vanilla stevia and water. A total yumfest and definitely got me through a late night of preparing a presentation that I have to give on Monday. The presentation is quite a big deal, but I will share all at another point.
It’s all go for me at the moment so i do apologise if my posting becomes a bit sporadic. 😀
Are you scared of the sight of your own blood? Have you ever fainted before at the sight of blood?
Did you do any cool experiemnts at school/uni?
