Peas and Crayons

 Wednesday aka hump day.

This morning as I looked out my window the fog covering the mountains I had a battle with myself that went a little like this – “Stay in bed it’s so cold outside” “This is the best time for a run, just get up and do it!!” The later voice won and thank god. Running this morning was so refreshing and I couldn’t wait to get home and make a big bowl of porridge to warm myself up!

So my friends I present you with my ‘what i ate Wednesday.’ Hope you’ve all had a great week.

Often I go to my favourite little cafe in Collingwood ‘The Cambridge’ and get one of my favourite salads. I seriously would probably get this at least twice a week it’s that good plus the lady there is lovely and already knows my order as soon as I walk in.

I love cooking. I find it quite therapeutic and relaxing. I try to cook dinner at least 4-5 times a week and try to change it up a bit see what works and what doesn’t. Not everything is always successful though but it’s edible!

Tonights dinner was salmon and stir-fryed veggies in a delicious sauce I made up consisting of fresh mint, fresh coriander, lemon juice, tamari and chilli flakes.

I would love to know what you’re cooking successors and disasters have been.

Until then my amigos I hope you’ve had a great week so far.

Eat well & be well x

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!


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.



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


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!



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.
