WIAW #16

Happy day! First What I Ate Wednesday of the year for me, Clanettes.

As ever, breakfast is all about porridge. I can't sing its praises enough - wholesome, filling and incredibly cheap cheap. Even easier if you get yourself a measuring cup - my pink heart scoop is 80mls of liquid or 45g of porridge oats. Perfect for one portion. To make it up, I use one scoop of oats, 2 scoops of milk, 1 scoop of water and a couple of sweetner. I have mine with banana or dried fruit. Together with orange juice and an assortment of multi-vitamins, glucosamine and anti-inflamatory tablets from the Dr.
Can you spot the deliberate mistake?! Thechildren eating their breakfast this morning... and the Christmas table cloth is still on! D'OH!! Must rectify this!

This morning I went to the Gym, and if I am exercising indoors I always use a 'Zero' tab in my water. Its just electrolytes, which I don't seem to need if I'm outside, but I used to get really bad cramp and now I don't.. Win!

For lunch Niamh and had cheese sandwiches - I like mine with plenty of grains, lashings of hummus and plenty of salad.. Niamh not so much! Although we both agree on the crisps.

Tea was all about Daal. A recipe I was given and have long since adopted.
I use enough lentils to fill one empty tin of tomatoes, then 2 tins of tomatoes and then 2 extra tins full of water. 2 teaspoons of garam marsala and 2 teaspoons of bouillon per tin of lentils.. if you catch my drift... Anyway, its super easy, super tasty and we eat it A LOT!

Happy WIAW! Go and check out what other bloggers ate today :-)
