What I Ate Wednesday #5

[donotprint] Is it that time already? I always find getting to Wednesday is actually quite painless, but Wednesday and Thursday always seem to drag a little. I think it’s because I know it’s getting closer to the weekend and because I’m slightly preoccupied with the fact it my mind, body, spirit and what not are all in a rush to get there.

Yesterday was another fantastic day of food…

It started with the last of my pineapple in the form of a pineapple and passion fruit smoothie

Followed by cherry bakewell baked oats, the recipe for which I shall share tomorrow!

Lunch was yet more butternut squash…Butternut Squash and Red Quinoa Chilli. Using the Quinoa in the chilli was fantastic. The red Quinoa reserved a little bite and added a hint of nuttiness to the overall creamy chilli. The extra bit of fresh chilli sprinkled on top added just enough of an added kick to satisfy my hot food loving palate.

I had a delicious organic Braeburn Apple on the side and a couple of Satsuma’s as a mid afternoon snack.

Dinner was a big bowl of comforting Minestrone Soup, jam packed full of veggies and spelt pasta, all topped off with toasted rye breadcrumbs.

Lindt chocolate was of course consumed before bedtime along with a generous helping of grapes, prunes and dried apricots which as usual I neglected to photograph! Smile

Eat anything nice lately? [/donotprint]

  2. It’s amazing how such simple ,seasonal, and cheap ingredients can be transformed into interesting healthy dishes with little effort. If you look close you will see they are classics.
    Invented no doubt by common people with what was available to hand at that time.and refined over time into restaurant style fare.
