Glad you all enjoyed seeing the contents of my fridge. I’d like to say it’s that tidy all the time, but in all honestly I lined things up nicely for the photo! I’ll definitely do a store cupboard post at some point. It was really interesting hearing what foods you all buy regularly, too.
As I said earlier, I decided to bring a Green Monster into work for breakfast this morning. In this heat, I thought a nice cold breakfast would be perfect. So early this morning I blended together spinach, fat-free natural yoghurt, semi-skimmed milk, a banana and some frozen mango. Then I put it in this:
You can’t tell from this picture, but the jug actually has a slit in the lid. Great for drinking out of, not so great for transporting it. I ended up holding the jug between my legs while driving up the motorway for an hour! Probably not easiest way of carrying it, but it worked. I got to work without so much as the tiniest spillage. What’s more, the drink stayed cold until I got hungry around 9am.
I drunk it straight out of the jug, and it was deliciously refreshing and filling. I’m definitely going to start doing this more often. Maybe I’ll invest in a better jug though (this one was free at my graduation)!
I had an apple around 11am, and then a hummus and spinach sandwich (again) for lunch. One day I’ll post three completely never-seen-before meals, I promise!
My afternoon snack was this beauty:
I love fruit salad at the best of times, but it’s especially good in such hot weather. In here I’ve got strawberries, red grapes and blueberries. I also drunk about a million glasses of water today – at least this heat wave is probably going to do wonders for my skin!
Dinner was fairly simple and quick – a salmon fishcake with advocado, broccoli and green beans. Looking at today’s food, I seem to have eaten less than usual. I never feel like eating much when it’s so hot, but I need to make an effort to ensure I get enough food. I did have a few handfuls of berries after dinner. I’m addicted!
In other news…when I got home from work today, this was waiting for me:
My dad went to New York on business, so of course I had to put some food requests in! Kashi Go Lean is something I’ve seen on pretty much every food blog I read. I’ve been wanting to try some for months, so I’m ridiculously excited I’ve finally got my hands on some. It’s definitely going to feature for breakfast tomorrow!
My dad also picked up a couple of luna bars for me. I’ve never tried the s’mores flavour before, but I’ve heard good things. At times I wish I lived in the USA just for the food – I need a regular supply of Luna bars in my life!
Question of the day: Does the weather affect your appetite? I always find I eat way more in the winter.
