Hope you are having a great Wednesday and that you are having nicer weather than we are here in Glasgow, Scotland! Grey and raining… not great! But we did have a few days of lovely sunshine so I’m not going to complain, only hope instead that the sun comes back soon!
It occurred to me last week that it has been ages since I have done a traditional ‘What I ate Wednesday’ post – so decided to rectify that and share with you all today.
Here are my eats from yesterday (Tuesday 29th April) – my thanks to Jenn over @PeasandCrayons for the link up!
Breakfast – Zucchini Patties, Hard Boiled Eggs and RollMop (pickled) Herring – topped with Furikake
Exactly what I needed and wanted after CrossFit – such a tasty combo!
Let me also introduce you to Furikake! It’s a blend of black and white sesame seeds with nori seaweed and red shiso leaves – a common Japanese seasoning. It is also delicious and jazzes up anything and everything – David and I are addicted! From sweet potatoes to eggs, it adds the most amazing umami flavour!
(We found ours in our local Whole Foods – you may be lucky to find some in your local supermarket or Asian store – just make sure the ingredients are clean, some have hidden nasties!)
Mid Morning Snack
Oh russet apple and tahini, how I love thee – yep still not tired of this combo! Paired with a cup of English Breakfast tea.
Lunch – Chicken with veggies and a side of baba ghanoush
Chicken and veggies, yum and need no explaining really! Baba ghanoush is an aubergine dip that David and I became addicted to when we went to the Middle East – it’s so smoky and delicious. We have even found a local company that make it exactly as it should be done, all with fresh, simple ingredients.
Mid Afternoon Snack
I say mid afternoon, more 6pm! Time for a nice relaxing bath = a nice relaxing gin and tonic! I also had some dried prunes to nibble on.
Dinner – Broccoli, Pea and Spring Onion (Salad Onion) Frittata
Fresh, delicious and nutritious, the perfect meal! We grated a little manchego cheese on top and served it with spinach and olives.

Pre Bed – Peppermint tea and a small bowl of melon
Nothing more soothing than a peppermint tea before bed. Combine that with some fresh, juicy melon and I was very happy!
And that was my eats for the day! Why not head over to Peas and Crayons to see what other bloggers have been enjoying?
