What I ate Wednesday (WIAW) #1

Welcome to my first ever WIAW!

Prior to starting this blog I would often look over fellow bloggers WIAW’s for food inspiration on new meals that I can cook. Todays post will be quite brief as it has been a long day. I do hope however you do enjoy browsing over my newly established blog!

[Breakfast]

After my morning run I was in quite a rush to get my breakfast and lunch ready before heading off to work.

Breakky was the usual homemade muesli with cinnamon soaked in water and kefir then topped with half a punnet of strawberries washed down with white tea and lemon juice.

[Lunch]

Homemade salad of crunchy cos lettuce, steamed beans, corn, tuna, avocado and toasted pumpkin seeds.

[Dinner]

After finishing work today i quickly went to our local market and picked up some mussels. I have never cooked mussels in my life but if they’re on a menu I am sure to order them!

To cook the mussels I first rinsed and de-bearded them. 

To a fry pan I added:            1/2 red onion

                                           1 clove of garlic

                                           chopped parsley

                                           1/2 jar of tomato passata

                                           Pinch of dried chilli, dried basil, salt and pepper to taste

                                           1 cup of water

I let this reduce slightly before gently puttting the mussels in the pot with the lid on for about 5 minutes to let them steam and open up. Plate up and top with fresh parsley – Voila!

What a success! These mussels were delicious and I can’t wait to cook them for friends and family!

 

[Snack]

Sitting down in front of the TV relaxing for the night I finish my day off with left over barambah natural yoghurt – so very creamy and oh so so good toped with coconut and washed down with a peppermint tea.

(For some reason I am unable to upload the picture – If I can figure it out I’ll definitely upload it!)

 

There we have to folks my first ever WIAW! Hope you enjoyed it.

Until next time, be well.
