WIAW - Lamb Kheema and trying Chobani!

Sooo, Jenn has provided a Halloween Theme for this months WIAW. 

If you are not already aware, I live in Australia and we don't really celebrate Halloween. If kids came to my door asking for lollies I would have to send them off with a carrot sticks, some protein powder or something equally horrifying for a kid :)


So I am not really sure what I am going to do for this months theme. I don't have access to candy corn, cans of pumpkin etc so I will just be boring this month.



Breakfast - I pan fried a bunch of asparagus and mushrooms. Topped that with 1/2 cup of scrambled egg whites and 1 egg then added a dollop of mango chutney for a bit of a kick. I also recently bought some mountain bread which is a bit healthier than the tortillas I usually buy, popped that under the grill and spread on some hummus. Paired with my compulsory almond milk coffee to complete an awesome brekkie!


Snackaroo - I have been so excited to try Chobani after ogling it on every American healthy eating blog, I recently saw that Bec over at Half Baked got her hands on some and couldn't believe that Australian supermarkets finally got hold of it. I picked up every single flavour and so far they have all been delicious.


Lunch - Chicken salad with either pear or apple has been my staple lunch for about a month now. Today was no different. Sliced Pear, chopped chicken, handfuls of salad leaves and marinated feta. I also added some olives for a bit more variety. This salad is so simple and easy, it's a perfect combination of sweetness from the fruit, saltiness from the feta and the chicken provides protein. This fills me up for lunch but still remains fresh and light.


Dinner - Somehow I missed out on my afternoon snack, the work day was over and I was starving! I cooked up some lamb kheema from my go to healthy eating blogger Skinnytaste.com. I think I overdid it on the spices because it was a bit overwhelming flavour wise. My tummy didn't complain though... it was full and happy!


Dessert - This has recently become a favourite quickie dessert. Slice up some apple and microwave for 4-5 minutes in a sealed container or top with plastic wrap. Then serve with a scoop of ice cream/yogurt and toasted muesli. Tastes like apple crumble but in a fraction of the time!

Hope everyone has a lovely WIAW! I thought I might leave you with this LOL - I seriously almost died laughing when I first saw it! (I really want to do this to my phone teeeheee)

  1. Halloween isn't all that big in the UK either, sadly people just seem to use it as an excuse to cause trouble and people tend to lock their doors and pretend they aren't home if anyone rings the doorbell. I've spent Halloween in California and the difference was incredible!

  4. Oh my GOODNESS. I'm dying of laughter.
    I love halloween. I live in an apartment now with very few kids, so it makes me sad that I don't get trick or treaters. When I was growing up, my house was the "cool house" that gave away full-sized candy bars, none of those little mini box excuses ^~
    we need to do a link button swap!! Can you email me at snackingonsunshine@gmail.com?

  8. I haven't had any lamb in forever! I wish it was more of a popular source of protein in the U.S. because it is SO GOOD :) And I am super happy for you on the Chobani front. Every girl needs some Chobani! It used to be my favorite Greek yogurt.

  12. Haha, I love the Gangnam Style phone screens! SNL did a skit with that and Bill Hader plays the role of that guy in the elevator. It was hilarious :)

    I love buying the big quarts of plain Chobani and adding fruit, protein powder, and honey :) I'm glad you've liked all the varieties so far!
