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…
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.
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
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..
because leftovers are spectacular. More so when you didn’t cook it to begin with 😀 .
Winging it for an early afternoon snack…
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…
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.
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
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!
