Hello lovelies! Aaaah the week has come, Rainhill week. The countdown is officially on! Only three days left counting today until I stop training for it. It’s going to be an exciting week! I can’t wait to get down to Manchester.
I haven’t shared my airport breakfast experience during my recent trip to Stockholm. Since I got up so early to get to Edinburgh Airport in the morning (4.20am) I was really not ready to eat anything. Luckily I know that there’s an EAT through security and they’re a saviour with plenty of healthy options to choose from. I checked their website before going to make sure they’d have something I’d like for breakfast. I saw they had a vegan coconut and quinoa porridge (YUM). The ingredients said buckwheat, oats, quinoa, linseed and coconut milk. Totally up my street! It’s great that more healthy options are popping up at airports to choose from. It used to be more of a struggle.
When I got there I saw that their tiny pot of porridge would not be enough to keep me full for the entire trip so I ordered avocado sourdough toast as well. However, next time I would probably just get another pot of porridge because I find it a bit too much with so much avocado. Yes apparently there is such a thing as too much avocado!
For the porridge I brought a banana and some nuts with me to bulk it up. I’m glad I did because they were quite stingy with the banana topping. Like five thin slices of banana. What’s up with that EAT?! Next time if I ever need an airport breakfast at EAT I would probably bring some protein powder or almond butter to bulk it up even further. For some reason I struggle to eat enough when I’m travelling I always end up starving. I should start bringing my own food. I’m usually good in my everyday life to make sure I’ve packed food for work or such but I haven’t really managed to apply this to my travelling days. I’m working on it!
I would definitely recommend the porridge, then again I’m a porridge lover… It’s incredibly creamy without feeling too heavy. Sometimes coconut milk can feel too fatty and heavy for my liking but this was lovely. The avocado toast was really nice and if you can’t ever have enough avocado then it’s a great option for you too.
I love that EAT are getting more and more vegan options in. As someone who’s always looking to make more conscious choices when I can, I’m very appreciative of this. I remember only about a year ago when they had far less options if you wanted to eat meat and dairy free. I’m hoping they’ll continue down this path with more exciting food to choose from.
