Can you believe that it’s Wednesday already? This week seems to be flying, being back at work has been none stop, and yesterday I took some time out to do a very fun Google Hangout all about using Evernote for Healthy Living and Fitness (you can watch it via that link) and then today I have several Uniquely Healthy coaching clients, good stuff!
These are my eats from last Friday when I was on holiday from work. James and I decided to have a day in town and go to the cinema. I got up after a little lie in and had some warm water with a squeeze of lemon juice followed by a butter blended coffee:
Delicious as always! Then for breakfast I had some coconut oil roasted apricots to use up. I decided to go for a sweet and savoury mix (a bit like my latest favourite Bacon, Squash and Almond Butter Salad recipe!) by combining them with smoked bacon and a couple of scrambled eggs:
That was lovely and filled me right up! Then it was off into town. We stopped for some coffee before heading for an early showing at the cinema. We went to 9Bar Coffee and I had an Americano:
It was nice to try out somewhere different for coffee! Then we went to see Die Hard 5, I wasn’t a huge fan to be honest, plus it was at the big cinema rather than my favourite little independent Tyneside Cinema.
After that I was ready for lunch so we went to Olive and Bean. I had a big feta and olive salad:
That was a mammoth salad and they didn’t skimp on the feta or olives, delish!
Then James and I separated so he could go record shopping and I could do my thing. I had a look in Topshop as I had a gift card from Christmas just begging to be spent. However I didn’t really see anything that took my fancy apart from this dress:
I thought it was pretty and definitely my style but couldn’t decide so I left it for another time. What do you guys think?
Then I hit Waitrose (for squash, cottage cheese and pouring yoghurt), the health food store (cashew butter and supplements) and the market (cauliflower, lettuce, peppers, beef bones for broth)where I found these:
Huge boxes of blueberries for just 99p each! I bought a couple and now I wish I’d bought more to stash in the freezer.
I had a look around some vintage clothing stores then went for another coffee while I waited for James then we came home. I caught up on emails and blog comments and then made dinner:
This was chicken curry made with Rustic Indian Mirchi sauce alongside some steamed cabbage and the most delicious pilaf style cauliflower rice. I fried the cauliflower rice with a finely chopped onion and some spices and added some water until it was cooked. Then I added some parsley. It was fab!
Dessert was frozen blueberries mixed with full fat greek yoghurt topped with tahini:
Plus more tahini to finish the jar! Then I made a double sized chai hot chocolate:
I made up a mug of sweet chai tea and mixed it with cocoa powder and some almond milk to make a spicier, naturally sweet hot chocolate.
A great day of food! I enjoyed everything so much, shame about the movie ;-) What was the last movie you went to see? Best foodie bargain you’ve came across recently?
