What I Ate Wednesday {18.6.14}

Hola Sparkly1s

I hope you've had a lovely today.  The weather has been glorious here today and I've eaten all my meals outside. We've had the paddling pool out for the kids, I've been to a Sports Day at school and sat soaking up the sun while it lasts.
I definitely think the warm weather encourages me to eat healthier as I think I'm more inclined to make a yummy salad instead of fatty, comfort food.


I just had to instagram this photo of breakfast. It was delicious, especially with the warm, morning sun peaking over the house. 
It's pretty similar to my normal breakfast but today I had natural yoghurt, topped with frozen forest fruits (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and cranberries), finished off with a sprinkling of sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. I prepared it 30 minutes before eating it to allow the fruit to thaw slightly. It was sooo scrummy!


A rare treat of going out for lunch today. We took the kids to The Derby Arms, a local pub, as they have a nice outdoor play area for them to play.  I always struggle when I go out to find something semi healthy but on this occasion the only vegetarian options were egg sandwich or cheese and beans on jacket.  As I knew I was having potato for tea I decided to opt for egg sandwich with no butter (this isn't a health thing, I just don't like butter on sandwiches), on brown bread. It could be served with salad, coleslaw and tortilla chips or greasy, yummy, homemade pub chips... I was good and opted for the salad.  I have to say it was really nice and if you're ever around Ormskirk call in for a lunch.



I wasn't hungry at all really come tea time. So I cooked the smallest sweet potato I had to serve with my special beans. You can find the recipe in this post.

What did you have to eat today?  I love checking out the #WIAW on Twitter.
