This morning I had a 9am lecture (my favourite one of the week – modern lit) so breakfast had to be easy and quick. I’m afraid it’s not very photogenic but I’m including it anyway… Sorry I’m not sorry 😛
Weetabix (of course), raw oats and frozen strawberries. Is it strange that I eat weetabix at least once a day and it’s the breakfast I used to have as a small child?
Not that I really care, lots of what I do is a bit bizarre to most people anyway!
I love my Wednesday morning lecture, it’s pretty much always really interesting and I usually manage upwards of six sides of notes. I love my fountain pen, it keeps my writing fairly presentable even when I’m scrawling away at top speed. Having said that, I’m not a very quick writer. Does anyone at uni (or who went to uni) find that you end up leaving gaps in your notes where the lecturer went to quickly so you have to go through the slides later and fill in the bits you missed?
Please say it’s not just me…
Lunch was quick and easy as well:
Arrabiata tortelloni with a tiny drizzle of olive oil and plenty of Parmesan.
Most of my afternoon was spent in the Cafe Nero near campus chatting, reading and working with my lovely friend Kathryn 🙂 I’m her ‘civilised’ friend (i.e. I don’t go out drinking like all of her other friends!) and we always have great conversations. We pretty much talk about anything and everything, from trashy gossip through to current affairs and ethics. Plus she’s a big fan of cafes and tea rooms like me so it’s lovely to have someone to drink coffee with.
I got what they call a ‘Caramelatte’ but with skimmed milk and no whipped cream. Essentially coffee and sugar really 😉
I know what you’re thinking, where are all of the veg? After all it is WIAW Love Your Veggies Month!
Well don’t worry, I ate a whole carrot (not chopped, just peeled) whilst doing my seminar prep. Yes I looked a bit crazy and like I’m on some sort of diet. Unfortunately (or probably fortunately for you lot) there is no photographic evidence of me
nibbling chomping on the carrot.
Dinner was also a vegetable affair:
Covent Garden tomato and basil soup. Delish! (Sorry I forgot to take a photo!)
Although I’ve had my veg, frozen strawberries and an (unpictured) banana I feel like I’ve had A LOT of sugar. I watch what I eat and make mostly healthy choices but the one area that I tend to fall down in is sugar. I have decided that for the next couple of weeks I’m going to make a big effort to eat less of the stuff. Especially in its processed form, I don’t really mind if it’s just from fruit.
So there you have my, sort of, veggie WIAW 🙂
What did you have for breakfast as a small child?
Do you still eat some of your childhood foods?
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten so far this week?
p.s. If you enjoy listening to singing or just general music, here is (warning: I’m about to gush) the link to my wonderful boyfriend’s barbershop group FourTune singing Bring Him Home from Les Miserables. He is singing the lead and they all did a brilliant job. I’m majorly proud of Tom so I’d love it if you had a listen, and maybe even subscribe or like their facebook group 😀
(Sorry for the shameless plugging! :-P)
