WHAT I EAT IN A DAY AT UNIVERSITY (UK EDITION)

December 11, 2017


It has been a while since I last posted a what-I-eat-in-a-day something, whether it be a blog post or a short video on YouTube. The change of scenery - better known as my Erasmus exchange - might make for an interesting comparison to my life back home, where everything I could ever need is ready for me to use. In the UK, I've had to find new products, new recipes and, although I usually cook for myself back home as well, having to plan out my meals every day of the week was an interesting challenge. Looking back at the previous weeks here - I'm writing this on my last Monday before I head back to Belgium for a couple of weeks - I think I've done a pretty good job at staying healthy and creative with my meals!

breakfast

For breakfast, I usually have a variation on overnight oats or a warm version if it's really cold outside. I prepare them the night before with boiling water, flaxseeds, some sort of nut butter and plant milk. In the mornings I mix it up with soy yogurt, either the plain Alpro one or a blueberry version. When my stomach is rumbling in the morning, I can just grab my breakfast right there and then.


lunch

For lunch, one of my uni roommates and I decided to be a little more creative and make a Mexican feast. We heated up a couple corn tortillas, we filled them with chili sin carne, soy mince, guacamole and other veggies like corn, tomatoes etc. Super tasty, filling and actually, incredibly easy. If you're wondering, the cheese in the pictures isn't actually cheese, it's a 'fake' coconut and soy-based one.




dinner

My dinner is a very lazy combination of either bagels or bread with jam and some sort of nut butter. If I'm having a more productive (or just less lazy) evening, I even dare to spice it up with a banana-chocolate spread bagel. I didn't think of taking a picture of the bagel (it wasn't very exciting either, don't you worry), but you can see the meal in the YouTube video.


youtube video

I filmed a video as well this day, so be sure to check it out below and let me know if you like this type of post or if there's something else you'd love to read on my blog!
