Fiberrrrrrrrrriffic

Hey Chickpeas!

Guess what came through the post today!

Oh boy!

That’s right! I popped my protein-powder-in-a-drum cherry! ๐Ÿ˜€

I bought 3 sachets of different Spiru-tein flavours in Whole Foods when I was in London a month ago (along with 6 jars of All Natural PB&Co… ahem) and tried it in my oats. I realised that protein powder in my breakfast does not only taste good, sweetens it but also keeps me full and SATISFIED for hours! So I splashed out on this beaut and can’t wait to try it out tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜€

Talking about breakfasts, here are my eats from the last couple of days:

Cookies N Cream me all ova!

1/3 c Oats + water + 1/2 scoop Cookies N Cream Spiru-tein + 1/2 banana + 1 plop of PB.

So good! Haven’t felt so satisfied since that morning when I ate oats AND spelt pancakes for breakfast, yeah I live it!

This awesome breakfast is usually followed by a cuppa joe but that morning I felt like cuppa tea!

Despite the coffee house brand mug

I had my usual snackplatter for lunch and had my fave kind of salad for dinner!

Gas-mic

I will lay down the salads for dinners for the next few days, too much fiber is just not good for me, it gives me fiber babies and embarrassing gas, yes, I’ve said it!

messy desk makes for messy dinners

Yeah, if you’re wondering why that wholemeal muffin is balancing on my knife, it’s quite simple…

I’m a consistency freak, I like it crispy not soggy!ย  I also slice the muffin and instead of toasting each half I toast it together so I have a very soft fluffy inside and a crispy outside… crazy much? Don’t answer that.

I also made THE best and yummiest quick sorbet everrrr:

Ice ice baby!

I blended frozen fruit salad (which consisted of apple, melon, grapes and pineapple), a handful of spinach, splash of waterย  and some agave nectar.

It gave me major brain freeze but it was worth it! I will add some frozen banana and xanthan gum next time to make it not so melty.

Yesterday after a sweaty gym sesh I browsed through town and didn’t realise the time! For a quick energy fix after workout I bought this bar:

Flavour, Where Art Thou?

At first bite I thought I was gonna be in heaven! It was soft, chewy and reminded me of a goooood snickers bar without the nuts…

But then… nothing, the flavour that was supposed to be peanut butter and caramel never came. Sad.

I still inhaled it and the stats weren’t half bad:

3.3g of Protein more than I had before

Not the best for a post workout snack but it was this one or sugar+carb pressed into a handy bar.

For dinner I had to eat the rest of the disappointing squash before it went bad.

After roasting it I threw it into a bowl of Parsnip soup and it was okay.

Today, I didn’t feel like gym so I didn’t go, simple right?

I worked some more on my dissertation, wrote about 200 words but it’s still progress!

I also was a good girl and prepped my dinner this afternoon! Angela’s In a Jiffy Veggie Spelt Burgers but I halfed the recipe and instead of dill and basil I added fresh parsley and some cumin. I also left out the chia seeds as I don’t have any, you can’t get them here. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I hope they will bake alright as I can imagine the gelified chia seeds might have something to do with keeping the burgers together… ๐Ÿ˜•

We’ll see what happens in a few hours!

I am out, might do some abs later on!

See yas all!
