What I Eat In A Day | Sunday Edition

Even though this “what I eat in a day” post is gonna be what it says on the tin, there’s gonna be a quite ramble-ish introduction – so I’d really recommend getting cosy with a cup of tea or a Frappuccino if the weather is still so beautiful when you’re reading this. 

So you probably know that I want to rename my blog for quite a while now, because I want more me, more Lena in the name. I still find my current name quite cool but I actually never explained to you what the two fs mean – the big reveal: it stands for fashion and food, since these were the things I originally wanted to blog about. If you’re reading my posts quite frequently you’ll know that I haven’t done a food related blog since July 2017, so I pretty much just wrote about food during the first month of blogging. But why? Well it just turned out that I’m not a big fan of reading about food so I just never had the passion to write the next masterpiece at this genre. Apart from that, I never really follow a recipe, since I always mix and match it to my current needs. So that being said, there’s a subtype of food content which I love and it’s the classic “what I eat in a day” kinda post. Because you guys know, I’m one of the most curious human beings out there and just the possibility to know what somebody eats on an average day makes me want to click the title/ watch the video.  And today is finally the day when I’m doing one of these, and since it’s my first one, it’d be lovely to get some feedback from you in the comments.  

So I’m starting this average “what I eat in a day” post series – woah nobody said it’s gonna be a series Lena, but we’ll see – with a little twist since it’s Sunday, which means more time for cooking aka more elaborated recipes and some cheeky little – tbh ratter big – portions of chocolate! Just to give you an overall view: it was a good day, food-wise at least, and I enjoyed putting these recipes together. But now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.   

I start my day with a good breakfast and since it’s a Sunday, it’s a little bit more than just a bowl of cereals. So for todays breakfast I craved some homemade granola with something like a smoothie on side – a little bit wired but I really fancy it. For the granola, simply take some unsweetened grains of your choice and mix it with some nuts, flaxseed and pumpkin seeds and combine everything with a little bit of maple syrup. For the real granola experience, you should roast this mixture in the oven – be aware, that it can burn quite easily – however I’m quite hungry and impatient today so I just eat the “raw” mixture. I don’t really want my granola with yoghurt or milk today, so I blend up some frozen berries with water and add it to the bowl. I’m really happy with the result and it’s freaking delicious – however, there’s a little bit room for improvement: I’d really recommend to add a frozen banana or some yoghurt to the frozen berries so it’s a little bit creamier. While eating the breakfast, I’m watching the newest video from Alana – she’s so pretty and her makeup skills are just mind blowing. Lovely morning! Now it’s time for studying MEH!

I’m checking in with you guys again and it about 12 pm, studying was very productive and I’m starving. For lunch I’m gonna make some PIZZA!!! Yummy! So, I got some new cookbooks about a month ago and there’s a recipe for a Mexican pizza in one of them. So, if you know me, you’ll know that I’m the biggest fan of Mexican food – chili is my fave food since I’m 10. So a Mexican Pizza seems to be the best thing from both worlds! Even though it Sunday, I’m not making the dough from scratch – one because I don’t have a good pizza dough recipe, and two because I want to try out this new low carb “dough”from Lizza. Tbh, I haven’t the highest hope for this dough but I’m just intrigued by the idea of a healthier pizza.

For the Mexican pizza you'll need:
  • A dough of your choice
  • Some tomato sauce – I made it myself with some tomato puree, lots of garlic, salt and pepper
  • Canned kidney beans and corn – more corn than beans since it can get a little bit try
  • Some cheese of your choice – I only had parmesan at home but it was still very tasty
  • A small sliced red onion
  • 2 or 3 sliced champignons
  • A half avocado

 I won’t go step for step through this recipe because everybody knows how to add topping on a pizza, however add the avocado just before serving. Avocado on pizza? Hell yes, avocado is bloody delicious no matter where you put it, trust me! Anyways, this pizza tastes really good – quite surprised to say that, but I’m a fan of the dough! – but I probably wouldn’t add the kidney beans once again, since they were a little bit too try.

So, I told you, it’s a Sunday and what’s a Sunday without a cheeky little treat. On that note, it’s time for chocolate! At the mo, I have the Milka Almond Caramel at home and holy moly that stuff is goooood! If you’re a fan of salted caramel and crunchy sweets, you have to try it.

After a looong afternoon with studying – Sunday funday??? – I’m ready for a dinner which lifts up my mood. That combined with an old sweet potato just screams sweet potato fries to me. For making them, I chop the sweet potato in chips like chunks, add one tablespoon of oil and then it’s time for seasoning. I usually go for quite a lot of salt and paprika powder but this time I also add a teaspoon of marble syrup because I read somewhere that that’s actually really good. Apart from that, you can also add a little bit of flour to make them a little bit crunchier. I let them sit for an hour to soak up all the spices and then I simply put them in the oven for about 40 minutes at 200°C. If you want them to by extra crispy you should at more oil.

Aaaand that’s it! That was my first what I eat in the day post, so I’d be really cool if you leave a comment how you liked it. Apart from that, I'd be super lovely if you subscribe or check out my Instagram or follow me on Bloglovin'

I hope you have a lovely Sunday!
