Worms On A Wednesday

Hey lovely readers how we doing this fine Wednesday?
I guess you may be wondering about my title more on that later........

This is the second day into my month off, feels really weird not to be going back to work, it also feels really scary. I'm very excited but also terrified thinking of all the crazy things coming up but I just gotta go with it I guess!? I have 2 days worth of food to show ya so get comfy....

Tuesday Re-cap:

I started the day with a mocha smoothie, this was so yummy topped with tahini and almonds.
It kept me full for hours which is always a bonus : )

In the mail yesterday I received a parcel from my little sister, she recently went to NYC for a wedding and picked me up some Twizzlers!

I have never actually been to NYC myself, I long to go but have never really had the opportunity but my older sister has been about 4 times so I tried these bad boys years ago and loved them so they were a welcomed surprise. I also love salt water taffy how about you?

After chilling at home for the morning I finally got sorted and did a much needed shop, I had nothing in the cupboards after getting back from Glastonbury and health is definitely at the top of the list. I got back from shopping famished!

I made an omelet with 2 grilled mushrooms, spinach leaves and bean sprouts. I seasoned with herbamare seasoning it is a mix of herbs and salt and I love it!

I cooked the omelet in coconut oil and it tasted delish : )

Mylo our cat always tries to get her head in my food when I take photos!

Lunch was followed by cherries with 0% fat greek yogurt (I'm trying it out again!)

I went to a 45 minute spinning class followed by an hour pump class, I managed to up my weights a little this week too!

I got home and again was ravenous, I filled my tummy with some turkey mince cooked in an aubergine sauce which I put on top of some steamed veggies, it went down a treat : )

Then pudding was a yummy treat well it was definitely yummy but it was also not bad in any way!

I made protein lollies! I was given a lolly mold by my sister and hadn't actually used them till now and they have been put to good use my lollies are fab!


Wednesday Worm Day:

I slept in till 9am today! That's a first in a long old while and it felt great, after my morning water I made another mocha smoothie, yesterday's was so darn good I just had to go with my craving.

I topped today's with pumpkin seeds and non-sweetened dessicated coconut : )

When my smoothie had settled I did an 1hr of yoga and did some stuff round the house like start sorting my stuff out. I need to really get rid of all my junk before going on this course as after I am wanting to move and the less I have the better!

Around 2ish I got some hunger pangs so decided lunch was in order. I had another serving of turkey mince but today had it with vegan pesto (that sounds wrong turkey with vegan pesto but it tasted good so who cares!?), steamed carrots and cauliflower as well as half an avocado.

I also had an apple with yogurt, cinnamon and almonds. I watched some TV, printed out a load of work I need to revise for my course then decided to go for a walk/run

I did a 5 minute warm up which included - star jumps, high knees, back kicks, switching legs and skipping each for 1 minute.
I left the house and started with a fast walk for 10 minutes then ran for 1 minute and walked for 2 until I got half way, I then ran for 2 minutes and walked for 1.
I went for 50 minutes which made me sweat like a beast, the sun blazing down plus I'm not as fit as I was since the back injury but I'm getting better so all's good : )

This is where i explain my blog post title, I made my dinner tonight and thought it looked like I had put worms in my dinner, I seriously thought about not including a photo but I thought you guys could handle it and as we all know even if the food tastes good it doesn't always look good right!?
My dinner was a sardine mess with spinach, onion, and bean sprouts with steamed veggies on the side it tasted fab so who cares what it looked like!

Pudding was a picture though, pretty and also tasty a total winner!

I saw a demonstration with the vitamix at a show and decided to try out a similar kind of recipe for myself. I made a frozen yogurt and fruit pudding and boy did it taste fabulous!

Strawberry Frozen Surprise!

3tbsp natural yogurt
1c frozen strawberries
1 carrot
1 date
1c ice
dash vanilla essence

Just throw it all in the vitamix and let it do its work!

I topped mine with organic cocoa nibs for some crunch but you can add anything.

Right this post has taken ages and I feel the need to turn off so its good night from one blogger to another.

Night x x


Favorite kind of mince?

I love most mince to be honest turkey, beef, lamb and soya venison is real good too, but if I had to choose I think turkey would be first choice : )


  1. Enjoy your time off! After all that stress, you need it! Love the protein pops- what a cute idea. In terms of candy...I love those little ones that look like raspberries and blackberries. Not much for chocolate

  2. Strawberry Frozen Surprise looks awesome..and i love that it's pink :)
