WIAW - It is heating up!

While it seems everyone in the Northern Hemisphere is pulling out their winter clothes and sipping on pumpkin spice hot chocolates (damn you guys and your pumpkin spiced everything!)

Down here is Australia, the temperature is rising rapidly and the necessity for wearing clothing is becoming more and more ridiculous... If I could turn up to work in a singlet, short shorts and thongs I would be one happy girl :)

In response to the dramatic change in season I find myself craving those refreshing foods that help chill me out! Sending a big thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW every single week :)



Breakfast - In case you missed my last post (check it out here) I have been loving icy cool shakes for breakfast lately, they are super quick to prepare after my morning workout and keep me energised well into the morning. Today was a little remix of my choconana shake, I used my vanilla IsoWhey protein powder and 2 tablespoons of P2B instead of the chocolate protein powder. I loved the peanut butter flavour and it works so well with banana.


Morning Snack - IsoWhey were kind enough to send me a sample of the Vanilla Yoghurt & Apricot Protein Bar which I tried for my mid morning snack :)


Lunch - My boy was kind enough to make me a yummy refreshing salad for lunch. It contained chicken, microwaved chunks of sweet potato, marinated feta, tomato and mixed salad leaves. So good!


Afternoon Snack - Chobani has become a regular staple in my daily eats - today was mango!


Dinner - I cooked up the cuban picadillo recipe I found on skinnytaste.com. This was delicious served with Basmati Rice and a really simple dish to make.

Does anybody else find that their taste/craving change with the seasons? What is your favourite summer food?

  3. I love your photos as usual! I've definitely been eating a lot more fruit and salads and pastas and staying away from dishes which require slow cooking or a lot of kitchen time. Easy and cool does the trick!

  7. I just love your posts. Everything looks so pretty and so yummy.
    I find myself craving the weirdest things with the seasons - like hot drinks in the summer (?!) and cold drinks in the winter. Probably because I bundle up so much ;)

  9. Emilie, I love your photography! It's beautiful! (I need tips...)

    Well, if you want to switch weather with Chicago, just for this week, I'd be happy to do so! I almost got blown over on my run yesterday!

  10. I want to say that it's not fair that it's not getting warmer here, but colder. However, I realize that that's just the way the world works! Enjoy the hot weather, but don't forget to share the love and send some sunshine our way :D

    My tastes definitely change with the seasons. I eat much warmer food in the winter. Actually, I take that back, I totally break the rules and eat cold food in winter and hot food in the summer. I'm not much for following the trend. Take pumpkin for instance, some people are just starting to crack open a can WHILE I have been eating it all summer! Haha. :)
