What I Ate Wednesday #14 Uni Version!09:00:00
I hope your week is going well. :)
It has been awhile since I wrote a What I Ate Wednesday Post. I felt that posting on a weekly basis was a bit repetitive. I thought that I would share a WIAW post now that I am back in Uni as what I eat changes a little bit with the season and when I am not home.
For breakfast I had porridge, with some blueberries, half a banana, cinnamon, almonds and honey.
Porridge is a great source of carbohydrates which provides us with the energy we need for the day. The gluten in the porridge increases its protein content.
Blueberries are filled with antioxidants which help prevent oxidation and prevent cancer.
Bananas have lots of potassium.
Almonds have good fats.
For lunch I had a wholemeal pita bread with mackerel, soft cheese (garlic flavour) and sweet corn, a apricot and peach yoghurt, a handful of peanuts and cashew nuts and a banana.
Wholemeal pita bread is a source of carbs, provides us with the fuel we need. It also contains the protein gluten.
Mackerel is an oily fish and filled with omega 3 fatty acids.
Yoghurt is high in calcium and will decrease risks of rickets, osteoporosis as well as maintaining a healthy set of teeth. It is also a great source of protein.
Nuts are high in protein and contain good fats.
For dinner I had a sweet and sour stir fry. The stir fry included - mixed bell peppers, a red onion, broccoli, chicken and noodles.
Peppers have plenty of vitamins and antioxidants.
Chicken is a very good source of protein and is low in saturated fats.
Noodles are fuel containing carbohydrates.
Broccoli contains a large variety of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, Iron, Magnesium etc...
