We don’t need to justify our actions for the world, but in the name of fun: I’m disclosing underlying reasoning to my eats the pass Sunday. Joining the What I Ate Wednesday bash at Jenn’s place, because sharing my meals – without having you literally swiping food off my plate and earning a fist in the face – makes me happy.



Starting the day of with a hug in a mug…

vanilla latte

because I’m a wimp in the freezing cold (3-5C) and nothing warms me up like a bunch of dextrins and sugar 😉 . Seriously, how does it result in a such frothy deliciousness with an ingredient list of that calibre 😯 !?


Taking a break from my role as an ardent “swirler” in favor of layering…

Oatmeal with half a banana and a spoonful of coconut oil stirred in after cooking, layered with yogurt and cinnamon, topped with Peanut butter and strawberry jam.

oatmeal- layered


because “variety is the spice of life”, <- do I have that right? and  believe it or not, I woke up with a vision of Amanda’s hypnotizing bowl from awhile back. Coming off a 2 week long Oat bran rendezvous, I experienced a sudden lusting for my first love on that particular day. Hit.the.spot. Allow me a second to express my grievance at having to -learn- to live without CRUNCHY peanut butter.


A sad depiction of an utterly glorious combination…

Butter & honey sandwich with a mug of piping hot Rooibos tea

butter & honey

because I am more interested in getting the food to my face, than bothering to play with it in order to capture things at its most enticing angle.


Deliberating that the most effort I am willing to devote into lunch is the act of sautéing spinach..

lunch- casserole

Cheesy spaghetti casserole

because leftovers are spectacular. More so when you didn’t cook it to begin with 😀 .


Winging it for an early afternoon snack…

butternut fries using coconut oil, honey & peanut butter

because I had no clue to my exact cravings. A silent squeal of delight at how perfectly this mixture of flavours and textures pleased my tastebuds.


An early dinner of takeout…

grilled hake and veggies

because that’s how I -prefer to- roll. There are times in life whence I need veggies drowning in some buttery concoction, laden with enough spices and salt to transform them into something else.. a delicious something else nevertheless.


Diverting from my daily dose of “chocolate mousse smoothie” to a plain ol’ chocolate smoothie come evening…

because it figures my family would become obsessed with avocado’s overnight, inevitably resulting in an unpleasant situation of “avo-less”. Guys! I have become so spoilt with the addition of creamy avo in my smoothies; I almost wept at the lack of.


A lullaby in the form of food cake….

vanilla sponge

because sleep is only sound when satisfied. And eating will forever trump sleeping pills *cough* . This beauty was freshly baked by Mum.. with love. Naturally, I swooped back in for another slice… because, it tasted good 🙂 .

Happy eating people!


Are you a fan of avocado in smoothies?

What is your preferred method of cooking veggies on a daily basis?

  1. Ahhh isn’t comfy seriously a hug in a mug?! I’m home for a few days and my parents have a fancy italian espresso machine. You better believe I’ve been taking advantage of that haha! How do you usually make your vanilla lattes :)?

    • “On point” describes them perfectly! They don’t always reach such a glorious degree of perfection – but on that day; they tasted very much on point 🙂 .

  2. Loooove avocados in smoothies! And in/on anything really. Lately I’ve been kind of obsessed with pairing them with Popchips, so I tend to go through them at lightning speed. I’m okay with this 😀 And you know I totally support the idea of not having to justify your meal choices… As long as you feel good and satisfied, what the heck else matters?!

    • It is only a matter of time before the chip dunking avocado idea will do a bewitching move on me, I reckon 😉 .
      And that is one of the million and one reasons I love you: food freedom, yess 😀 !

  3. I have become a roasting queen as of late. I just chop up whatever veggie I have, douse it in oil, salt and pepper and roast it for about twenty minute. It’s so delicious! I’ve never had avocado in smoothies before. I always forget about that ingredient =-P

    • The Roasting Queen is a lovely title to hold 🙂 ..that said, I need to do a simple salt&pepper roast soon – it’s been ages.
      Just a 1/4 of an avo does magic to the creaminess and thickness; try it sometime!
