What I Eat in a Day - Main Meals Edition
I've been wanting to make one of these kinds of posts for a while, so I thought I'd start with a summary of my main meals to ease myself in. I'm a snacker at heart so this is by no means everything that I'd eat in a day, but it's a start. Being a student I try not to spend ridiculous amounts of money on food but I do splash out on some luxuries, whilst keeping the costs low in general and trying to bulk shops in cheaper stores like Aldi. 
To start my day, I often like to go with a hot meal, or something a little more substantial. I love rye bread and it pairs so well with smoked salmon and a soft boiled egg - my favorite way of doing them. Paired with a bit of veg and a hefty dose of black pepper, you've got yourself one delicious breakfast.

For lunch, I tend to prefer something a tad lighter than my evening meal, and with lots of veg for vitamins and health. Here, I've gone for a somewhat easier take on the ever so popular and instagrammable buddha bowl. A bed of spinach, giant couscous, pomegranate seeds, edamame beans, seeds and carrot with a beanie burger and topped with a big dollop of houmous - it's the perfect throw together lunch. Of course, this was also doused in sweet chilli sauce -  my latest obsession - after I took a photo.

I can't get enough of stir fries, and they're so simple to make I don't know why I don't do them more often. They're amazing for using up the odds and ends of your leftover veg and served with Itsu dumplings as above, or protein of your choice and a bed of noodles or rice, it's hard to go too far wrong. All I ever use is a bit of garlic and ginger, some sesame oil to fry in and some fish, oyster and soy sauce to flavor - simples. Whilst that was all cooking, I boiled up some rice, but forgot to photograph that at the same time - doh!
I hope this has been vaguely interesting/inspiring - let me know if you'd like to see more of these in the future - and whether it would be helpful to see snacks and puddings included too?
