• {WIAT} What I Ate Today

    It’s so amazing what you can do in the kitchen when you put your mind to it. Since I got back from my vacation 3 weekends ago I came back with such enthusiasm to start cooking again. You see when I left for Uni about 7 years ago now I met a group of girls who I love to pieces more so because they loved to cook and well it was a change for me for once someone else was cooking and I got to enjoy. Anyway since I have been back I have been cooking up a storm of healthy foods without even thinking about it and the best part is my size 12/14 is now on its way back to size 10/12. Anyway back to the post, so what did I get up to today.

    Breakfast – Today I ate the last of my Jordan’s Granola cereal which I got in my september Degustabox, such a sad day but getting some more tomorrow from store.

    #breakfast is served this 1st day of November 2014.

    Lunch – I kind of skipped lunch today, I ate yoghurt, some Special K crackers crisps from my October Degustabox and drunk loads of water (I actually mean juice).

    Dinner – I felt like having a salad as I was not really hungry but with eggs and cooking bacon reaching their expiry date today I figured its do or die day (I crack my self up). So this Egg/Bacon style salad was born, I actually created it a week or so again but forgot about until today.

    The best part about being in the kitchen is you don’t have to always follow the recipe you can twick as you go and thats how great chefs have grown (so am told) and improved their skills. There you have it, my what i ate today (WIAT) is done, what did you eat today?

      You have a very healthy meal for that day! I wish to have salad but the family is eating mostly meat and chicken everyday because it’s holiday for us during November and December.

      • November 15, 2014 / 7:18 pm

        Am sure you can add some sort of veggie in there and thanks definitely working on my healthy-ness

      I have to say that if I ate that little all day I think I’d wither away but they are healthy options so that is good.

      • November 5, 2014 / 10:43 pm

      Breakfast looks like it was really good. I love granola cereal, with or without adding any extras, but this looks great and reminds me of those yogurt parfaits.

      • November 6, 2014 / 8:05 pm

        I am a new lover of granola but with yoghurt not yet mastered the art of without lol

    10. November 4, 2014 / 2:23 am

    13. November 3, 2014 / 8:51 pm

      Ooooh the breakfast is right up my street! Looks divine!

    25. November 2, 2014 / 8:03 pm

      Love the look of that granola. Not something I generally have, but it great for a treat.

    26. November 2, 2014 / 7:33 pm

      I love reading food journals and seeing pictures. The granola looks good…so does the salad!

      I’m currently on a wheat-free, sugar-free diet…so for breakfast, I had a Special Dark Chocolate Mug Cake (made with almond flour, ground flaxseed, cocoa powder, chocolate chips and a few other ingredients). It’s like a breakfast muffin, ‘cake’, sweet treat…depending on how you look at it. I topped it with a mixture of cream cheese, butter, and Truvia. For lunch, I had a pastrami sandwich with lettuce and mayo on a “fake bread” made with almond flour, ground flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, egg, olive oil, and a bit of Truvia. I cannot believe you can make these mug-thingies by popping them in the microwave for 1 minute or so.

      • November 6, 2014 / 8:07 pm

        wow now i wanna see what you have made my palette taste without seeing lol

    27. November 2, 2014 / 6:52 pm

      Very interesting food journal. The salad does looks good.
