So today started off really badly when the alarm failed to go off and I opened the curtains to be greeted by pouring rain. I hate rain – especially on a Monday morning! So I was running late and tempted to forget about making a packed lunch & breakfast, but I thought ‘If I do that I’ll have to blog it and that would not look good on my second post!’
And you know what? I am so glad that I did! Breakfast was a new combination for me based on ideas I have picked up from many other blogs:
Total 0% Greek Yogurt (80g) 44 cal
Honey 60 cal
Tesco Special Flakes (25g) 93 cal
Strawberries (1/3 cup) 27 cal
Raspberries (1/3 cup) 22 cal
Total 246 cal
It was delicious. But next time I might have to increase the portion as it didn’t keep me as full as I would like. I would happily add another 100 cal for a filling breakfast. Maybe tomorrow I will add some banana for a bit more bulk!
Today I also found a great new rice cake product that I will use for a product review soon.
My lunch was a yummy chicken salad sandwich with a scrape of low cal mayo and some veggie sticks (pepper, carrot, cucumber and cherry toms).
Dinner tonight needed to be quick and easy – OH went out again at 6.45. I found some fish in the fridge which I baked with healthy homemade fries, green beans and carrots for a fairly healthy version of fish and chips. Oh and a dollop of tartare sauce on the side.
I think I might have some dessert tonight while I watch the new episode of Brothers and Sisters. I’m thinking 1 scoop of vanilla ice-cream with some stewed plums (that I made yesterday with plums that wouldn’t ripen and some honey). Feels decadent, but really not too bad.
I’m off to research cameras on the internet as we really need a new one (and I want to experiment with photos on the blog). I am also drafting the information cards to go in my wedding invitations tonight. Off to find maps and images to make it look pro!
