WIAW: back to the basics

May 9, 2012

Hi y’all! Happy Wednesday.

This usually is my favorite day of the week, except for Fridays and Saturdays but since I have an exam today I’m my less-happy self this morning. Today I’ll be sharing my Saturday eats with you since I simply did not take a lot of pics yesterday and it would have been a rather empty post! Big thanks as always to Jenn for throwing the foodie-party!

I began my day with the classic bowl of oatmeal. It’s been pretty dreary and cold around here lately for the last 3 weeks so something warm sounded perfect. Juice on the side as I was too lazy to fill up the kettle to make tea.

My morning snack was my favorite green juice: the Nakd Green Machine Smoothie. A bit expensive but perfect as a weekly healthy splurge ๐Ÿ™‚

Lunch was once again an oven-roasted creation: herb-crusted trout, quinoa and oven-roasted asparagus. So simple, yet so good!

Since I made 2 trouts I had one leftover, which I had for dinner on Monday. I thought I’d add pics as an WIAW-bonus. Served with brown rice and a huge pile of salad ๐Ÿ˜€

My afternoon snack/ dessert was a Mรผller vanilla yogurt with dark chocolate sprinkles. They were on offer (3 for ยฃ 1) and I couldn’t say no to that. I still prefer my usual Greek yoghurt which is a lot less sweet since the Mรผller yogurts left me more thirsty than I already am! Anyone else have the same problem after eating sugary treats?

For dinner I made myself another one of my favorites: cheese and crackers + grapes. The perfect no-cook dinner/ lunch/ snack although the grapes really weren’t that great.

Throw in 2 cups of not pictured coffee (one in the morning, one in the afternoon) and a couple of squares of dark chocolate and you’ve got my Saturday eats.

I can’t wait to read all of your WIAW posts as a post-exam treat! Have a great WIAW!

    Oh my god, your troat lunch/dinner looks amazing. I love fish with some good green veggies. Also, your dinner is perfect – it’s a shame the grapes weren’t good, they look fabulous! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Bec! I discovered that grapes don’t necessarily have to taste good just because they look that way. Haven’t been very lucky with them lately.

    Loving asparagus at the moment! Definitely the vegetable of the season! What PB is that on your oats it looks so creamy?

      Same here. I’m really taking advantage of it while it’s in season. That’s almond butter on top of my oats!

    Yes! Especially after soda, which is why I don’t drink it.
