The weather has been so gorgeous of late in the UK, apart of me keeps forgetting that it is only March and not summer. We have definitely taken the right week off work and have been making the most of this amazing weather.
I hope you all are having a great week so far. It’s Wednesday already which means it’s time for some mega WIAW action.
As well as exploring beautiful towns this week it has also been great relinquishing some of my summer garbs too:
OOTD: Floral vest, Forever 21, flared jeans, Warehouse, wedges, Sole, owl necklace, Accesorize
Like always when the weather is sunny my eating habits totally change. On Monday and after my birthday indulgences I jumped straight on board with the Green Smoothie Challenge. I have had one every day this week and have really been loving them.
Yesterday’s smoothie included a banana, pear, chocolate hemp protein powder, frozen berries, spinach, milk thistle, camu camu berry powder, rice milk and water…too good!
You can read my previous Green Smoothie Challenge round up here, which is full of tasty green smoothie recipes. There will be another round up of this weeks smoothies coming your way too.
For lunches this week I have been craving humungous salads of all varieties especially those involving lots of whole grains, fresh fruit, seeds, leafy greens and dried fruit with a delicious dressing or just topped with hummus.
Mixed leaves, Curried Quinoa with Cashews and Sultanas, red pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, roasted chick peas and hummus.
Yesterday for my afternoon snack I made yoghurt mess of fresh fruit including strawberries, a banana, frozen cherries and soya yoghurt…yum!
Since we were celebrating out 7 year anniversary yesterday we decided to celebrate with a meal at our favourite restaurant. Although when we got there we realised that the name of the restaurant had changed and it was under new management. Nothing really caught our eye on the menu, but the dishes did all sound delicious all the same.
Instead we ordered a huge seafood share board, a sundried tomato, mozzarella and rocket salad with a balsamic glaze, hand cut chips and some roasted prawns that were coated in this amazing sauce. Everything tasted so good and we love tapas and having little bits of everything so this was just perfect.
I do think it’s funny how your tastes and food cravings can change according to the weather. Smoothies and salads are my thing in the hotter months whereas in the winter I’m all about warm oats, soups and stews.
How do your tastes change from the cold to warmer months?
What is the best thing that you have eaten today?
