What I…Wednesday!!

HEY friends!! Have I confused you? Kay, so I admit it, I’ve published this post a few hours early, but it’ll be Wednesday soon! Smile with tongue out 


I LOVE WIAW’s!! Love seeing everyone else’s contributions…so FUN!! Open-mouthed smile

What I Ate Wednesday

There has been some SERIOUS almond butter lovin’ ever since I rediscovered it a couple of days ago…


CCK’s Banana Bread in a Bowl, but my tropical version (made with coconut milk, coconut butter, shredded coconut and tropical protein powder) and topped with almond butter:


Cocoa-Nut Almond Butter stuffed medool dates x a billion:DSC09429

And my Banana Oatbran Pudding topped with Cocoa-Nut Almond Butter and strawberry jam, heavy on the toppings! Winking smile


I think I DID have a meal that DIDN’T involve almond butter (sweet tater with vegan cheese, cannellini beans in tomato+nooch sauce and mushrooms):DSC09425

But I may have had this on the side to make up for it:


Apples with almond butter. Obssessed.


Last night really fancied a take-out, which is rare cos I love making my own food! I haven’t had one in probably a year!! You can tell when someone is beyond lazy when they ARE (half) Indian and yet get an Indian takeout that they could easily make themselves…hmmm…! Twas good though! I had dal (lentils) and rice:dal-rice-01

AND got given free wine and lollipops by the lovely guys at the restuarant!! I’m guessing they didn’t know I was underage…? Smile with tongue outDSC09461

It’s okay, I don’t drink and I was much more excited about the lollipops anyways! Winking smile


What I Made Wednesday

I did what all cool young people do. I got up early with the urge to bake, and did.DSC09466

Don’t think I was kidding when I said I lived in my PJ’s and workout clothes (er…every photo in this post!!!) Smile with tongue out


I made some MUFFINS!!DSC09492

I’m not gonna lie. These are the best muffins I have ever made. They may or may not involve almond butter and a ‘surprise’…DSC09498…anyway, recipe to come!! Open-mouthed smile


What I Loved Wednesday

I LOVED getting post!! Brace yourselves for another Emma-hugging-the-mail-in-her-workout clothes-or-PJ’s picture…DSC09503 Especially when it was a package addressed to me (there are usually tears if it’s for someone else) with a cute little heart drawn on too! Aww!DSC09476

The BEAUTIFUL Emma sent me a box of vegan choccies that she made!!DSC09478DSC09480I tried one of each. Emma you are SO TALENTED these are AMAZING!!DSC09483Aren’t they so professional looking?DSC09487I was in HEAVEN!! Emma you are a GENIUS and I love you so much!! Seriously girl, you need to SELL these- I would sure buy them!!

What I Read Wednesday

Runner’s World whilst on gym machines!DSC09439

The PAULA RADCLIFFE edition!! Oh YEAH!! Open-mouthed smile


What I Made A Fool Out Of Myself Doing Wednesday

After my workout, I spent 15 minutes trying to get into Gym Locker #48. I couldn’t get in, so I found someone (er…the manager…!!) and asked him why I couldn’t get into it.

He then pointed out that I had Locker Key #49, aka the one next to it. He looked at me as though I had no brain, and I think I agree with him…!DSC09451


What did YOU…Wednesday? Tell me about your Wednesday!! Or if you’re reading  this on Tuesday, tell me about your Tuesday! Smile with tongue out


What is your current food obsession? Almond buttah!! I do feel guilty though. It’s like I’m cheating on my beloved PB…don’t worry peanuts, I will return to you always!!


Random Q: Books or Magazines? I love both, but I’m gonna say BOOKS! Mainly cos magazines are overpriced (at least the ones I get are anyway!)

  9. I’ve gotta say books hands down although when I’m at the gym oftentimes magazines are easier to hold up :)
    I love how you had 2 bowls of oats today. Love it!!
    Ilove getting mail too, I was known as the “crazy about mail girl” when I was at camp as a child haha

    • True about the magazines!! Although you should see my book trick! I take a big stretchy headband and that holds it to the machine! I look like such a geek but it’s SO worth it! :P

      Oats are the BEST! And haha that’s hilarious!! I think I am a definitely a crazy mail girl!! :D

  11. My current food obsession is Sesame Oil! I love adding it to salads lately. It’s such a fun, nutty flavor!
    I’m so excited for those muffins. Best type of pastry ever. Especially if it’s spiked with almond butter.
    What did the bee pollen chocolate taste like? I’ve always wanted to try bee pollen but I never bought it because I have no idea what it might taste like!
    Tara recently posted..Q&A Part 2

    • Oh it tastes SO GOOD!! I’ve never seen it before, and hadn’t tried it before today, but it’s LAVELY!! Kinda crunchy and a bit like honeycomb I guess…? Anyways it is DEEEELISH and you should totally buy some!! :D

  12. Yum, those vegan treats look SO delicious & such interesting flavors! Books! Once exams are over, I have a whole list of books I’d love to read, pretty much tons of running books.
    Lauren recently posted..Crunch Time

  13. I simply cannot get enough of you, this post is amazing! Every time I read your blog (ummm, daily!) it makes me hungry, I love all your eats! Those muffins look to die for too! Books trump mags, except runners world – it is worth the price so I splurge. Twinsies again on the choice in clothes, I am basically in workout gear all day every day haha :D

    • Awww Lilly you are seriously the SWEETEST girl, and I can’t get enough of your comments!! :D

      That is SO true- you can’t beat RW!! And YES workout clothes are the COOL thing!! I think we need to teach that message to the rest of the world! :P

  14. On Tuesday, I struggled to get my brain back into work mode after having racing an amazing 3:08 marathon in Eugene. It sucked…I just wanted to be running ;)

  15. I am obsessed with almond butta!! It is sooo addicting and soooo amazing!!

    Well, it;s only 10.46, but I’ve already ran 4miles, and done a 3mile revision walk! Very productive :) Oh, nd paid a bloke £44 to fix the washing machine :/

    What is your current food obsession? Green monsters parsnips kabocha. As usual…

    Random Q: Books or Magazines? Both! I could never pick.
    Freya recently posted..Number Two- Number Two

  22. You totally did confuse me… although in all honesty that probably says more about me than you! Those chocs look delish, so jealous of those haha, off to check out her blog now!
    Laura @ box run eat recently posted..Good Friday Hill Race 2011

  23. Bless! I’ve nearly done that with lockers so many times…panicked like anything only to realise once I’ve calmed down that it was a different number locker.

    Those chocolate treats look absolutely divine: definitely think she should make them professionally.

    What brand of vegan cheese do you use? It always looks lovely but all the types I’ve tried have been pretty bleh and upset my tum. Perhaps it’s because the only cheese I liked before being vegan was mozarella…and feta or halloumi, so non ‘cheesy’ cheeses?

    Food obsession: frozen cherries and fresh blueberries. Oh, and raw cashews! I’ll be up to half a packet a day of the latter soon…

    Books over magazines for sure. I actually don’t read any mags as they tend to be quite repetitive in content.

    I live in workout clothes too: it’s what I’m comfortable in and I hate anything that restricts my movement.

    ~Jessica~ recently posted..Slow Seventeen

    • I used mozarella style Cheezely I think…? I didn’t like it much though, sorry! :P

      I have to try frozen cherries!! I LOVE cherries and since you rate them so much, they must be good! :) And haha don’t worry I go through SO MANY cashews!! They’re my fave nut, and SO addictive!! :D

  24. I agree, magazines are totally overpriced. £4 a go, what the… !?

    I’m like you with almond butter too — if I have it in the house I have to eat it with everything until it’s all gone. Usually in about 3 days!

  25. SoSo much almond butter!! You got me cravin’ the stuff!!

  34. I LOVE your obsession with pb and almond butter. :) It makes me seriously so happy to see your crazy consumption! And partially jealous! Cuz as you know I only allow myself that stuff at certain times :/
    But I’m working on it!
    Oh and also I am sorry I haven’t been commenting lately, but I HAVE been reading! Promise! I’ve just been busy out of town :/
    Anyway, you were the one who introduced me to stuffed dates + pb and umm, yum! Thank you! so good.

    What I did Wednesday- drove back to college from home (Connor’s granddad’s funeral), a 8×800 meter workout, grocery shopping, dinner cooking, and cleaning. Not too much!
    Food obsession? Hmm.. right now I’m craving some pita chips + Sabra roasted pine nut hummus!
    I like books AND magazines, but books better. Right now I’m reading Water for Elephants. I really like it :) And I just got the new Runner’s World. I flipped through it, but I haven’t read it in detail yet!

    Thanks for always putting a smile on my face Emma!
