Hello all! This is my first ever WIAW 🙂
(And due to holidays etc will not be another one for a few weeks oops!).
After reading the rules I realised that I could choose any day, but just have it ready to post on Wednesday. So I chose Tuesday, and was diligently snapping away at home!
Breakfast– Chopped jazz apple, 50g Rude Health Early Bird Crispy Muesli, Milk.
Snack– Some dried mango (that Forest Feast stuff is lovely) and then a smoothie/ fake ice cream bowl- one small frozen banana whizzed with Kara coconut milk and cocoa powder.
Plus some end-of-term chocolates (pre-digging energy).
Then I headed to the allotment and ended up doing 3 hours of digging! I forgot to wear my watch- no wonder I was hungry when I got home! I was annoyed actually as I forgot to take the camera today, and as I took a proper fork (and not just the hand trowel from Monday) I actually dug up a load of massive plants. Ah well, maybe next time I will take a pic.
Lunch– some of the quinoa salad I made yesterday, with some wheatgrass powder stirred in (after the spirulina mistake I was nervous to open this, but I think it smelled a bit like tea) and topped with Righteous raspberry basil dressing. Yum.
Plus a pear and a rude health oaty thin covered with Sainsbury’s choc chip pb. I was very hungry after all that digging I can tell you! A bulldozer might have been an easier option!
Afternoon snack– some Cosy Earl Grey tea, and a Waitrose nut bar (to give me me energy for aerobics).
Dinner– pasta with pesto, roasted courgette and pepper, and then I sprinkled it with some cheese.
Dessert; A chai bite, grapes and cherries. I am loving cherries so much at the moment!
Plus some mint tea, which I did not photograph.
Gosh, taking photos of all of that makes me think that was a lot of food! At least I got in a lot of fruits and veggies haha! Maybe not very much protein for today though- it was a carb-tastic day but then 3 hours of digging plus aerobics means you need carbs I think!
OK, well that was my first WIAW. I think the best thing for me was that breakfast, as it is such a summery combination. Best thing you ate today?

Yay! I think when you take pics of everything you eat you feel like you are always eating, when in reality you aren’t!
I haven’t eaten yet today, but I have a feeling it will be the salad I have planned for lunch with lovely veg box veggies!
A big salad sounds lovely 🙂
Yey for your first WIAW! Your pasta dinner sounds nice, I’ve just made my first attempt at home made pesto and it is amazing! Best think I’ve eaten today so far, well actually the only thing so far was my berry green smoothie topped with sunflower butter, it was delicious!
Your eats look yummy – I love pasta with pesto. I haven’t eaten anything yet today but the best thing I had yesterday was an avocado sandwich and eggplant pizza!
Congrats on your first WIAW post – I always love reading bloggers posts on a Wednesday because I know they will be full of delicious foodie photos! It doesn’t look like a lot of food to me at all, especially with all that digging you did. I’d be literally knawing my arm off after 3 hours of manual labour! You pasta & pesto dinner looks lovely, reminds me I must but some nice pesto when I’m next shopping as I do love the taste. So far today I’ve only had breakfast, but I have a feeling the hummus and veg on crackers that I have planned for lunch is going to be the best thing I eat today – I’ve got such a hummus craving 🙂
Pfft, a lot of food? Wait till you see my WIAW post. And I’ve sat on my butt ten times more than you have.
You always stick to portion sizes too! I know for a fact I don’t do that.
YAY, awesome WIAW, I’ve had to ban myself from cherries …. last year was eeerrrmmmm interesting because I ate too many – OOOPS 🙂
Thanks guys. It is not that I think I ate too much, but it just looks a lot all together.
Yayay! For jumping on the WIAW band wagon! I love it. I had some amazing sabra hummus with organic rye bread and veggies for lunch today and some pesto that I made last night…yum!
Woohoooo for your first WIAW!! 🙂
All of your eats look so good and YUM for the dried mango! You know I love my dried mango hehe! You definitely did not eat a lot at all..I think I could quite easily eat twice this amount haha.
The best thing I’ve eaten so far today is my muffin mess with greek yogurt and maple syrup 🙂
Jemma- home-made pesto sounds amazing!
Nicky- your muffins always look amazing I think I would choose one of those for sure if I had eaten them!
Damn! I’m still lagging on the WIAW!! Maybe next week!
Oh man! I thought I was the only one left! 🙂
I love dinners like that — oldies but classics 🙂
Best thing I ate today was the pita bread and marmite I just had as an extra snack because I was STARVING after the gym. I love eating when I’m really, genuinely hungry.
Good work on the digging too!
The pasta looks lovely 🙂 I don’t think it’s a lot of food – I always eat my 3 meals and 2 or 3 snacks a day.
Yay for joining the party!
Welcome to the WIA party!! What a fantastic day of eats! the best thing I have eaten today has been the Farmer’s Market cherries I got. They are phenomenal!
Alison you are right- the classics are classic for a reason after all 🙂 Marmite on pitta sounds lovely 🙂
Sarah- I think it was right for the day (the amount I mean) but seeing it altogether makes it seem like a lot!
Allie- thanks 🙂 Cherries are the best.
Yay! I’m so glad you have done a WIAW – I have been so intrigued to see yours!
LOVE the Disney mug! And all your eats, of course!
Best thing I ate? Broad bean, asparagus and mint houmous. 🙂
Oh I love those little “celebrations” chocolates! They’re so tasty! Your snack has me craving cherries!
so much variety! I love it! =) Happy 1st WIAW!!! <3 Hope you loved the party! xoxo
Jessica- I have a lot of disney mugs- I just cannot resist them!
Liz- They are tasty, and yeah cherries are so good at the moment.
Jenn- Thanks for that- the party is so much fun- I love being nosey into what other people do/ eat!
