Confession: Sometimes when I write a What I Ate Wednesday post, the photos aren’t what I ate that specific day. Today, is different. Today, my post is actually everything I’ve eaten on this day, to give you a clear idea of my primal food choices. I believe this is important; people need to see different food options are always out there.

My usual of eggs + vegetables in the form of a fritata, made with 10 eggs, red pepper, mushrooms, Swiss Chard and chives – the last two are organic from our garden. Eating a piece of fritata for breakfast guarantees I eat just over one egg per day, because I cut the fritata into 8 slices.
I enjoyed this with a bowl of fruit: nectarine (LOVE!), strawberries, and blueberries. I added raspberries after I snapped this photo.
I ate my only fruit of the day with coconut cream and crumbled Nutter Bomb on top.
Not pictured: a bulletproof espresso made with 2 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp butter, 2 teaspoons xylitol. I’ve been drinking more espresso ever since Ireland, which makes for bitter coffee. I like sweet coffee, hence the xylitol.
Packed for work! Turkey meatloaf with carrot, courgette (zucchini) and onion; served with leftover fried broccoli, and a salad of Swiss Chard, cucumber and tri-coloured tomatoes! This was enjoyed with that entire avocado, all tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette I made.
For dessert, my usual dairy-free Fat Bomb with a huge mug of Matcha Green Tea. I love big mugs of tea 🙂
Not pictured: the handful of roasted, salted almonds that I ate when I got home from school.
So, I FINALLY bought a spiraliser. It’s taken me so long to buy one because I’m a cheapskate and didn’t want to pay close to £30 for one. Luckily, I found one on Amazon for £16, and the rest is history. If Zoodles are zucchini + noodles, then in the UK we’ll call them ‘Courgetti’ instead: courgette + spaghetti.
Tonight, I made Courgetti Bolognaise topped with a bit of parmesan cheese, because you can’t have Bolognaise without parm. I also went a bit spiraliser-crazy and did up some sweet potato to bake in the oven and turn into crispy strings. It was all so delicious and so satisfying. I’m glad to have a noodle-shaped food back in my life 🙂
Not pictured: the large cup of peppermint tea and small handful of raspberries I enjoyed afterwards.
