Today I bounded out of bed ready to tackle another I want my bikini body workout. Good stuff indeed. Then it was time for a green smoothie.
It was a hectic morning as we all had to be out the door at 8.30am so breakfast was packed to eat in the car. I had a small multigrain sandwich with spreadable cheese, tomato and cucumber.
If you want to read about my crazy be sure to visit my main blog.
My morning snack with a few corn thins with cottage cheese. I didn’t end up eating the banana.
I bought a skim iced choc and salad for lunch but I didn’t end up eating the salad. Strangely enough I really didn’t feel much like eating today. Shock horror!!
I think my chickens enjoyed the salad though :-).
My afternoon snack was another green smoothie.
For tonights dinner guests I served some nibbles. I had mainly hummus and vegetables, plus a few tortilla chips and a few pieces of cheese.
Dinner was a BBQ with baked potatoes, sweet potatoe, pineapple, onion and my new favourite salad.
I really didn’t feel much like desert (apple crumble) but since Amy had made it I felt I should have some. It was yummy and I ate about 3/4.
Lastly I served tea and coffee and a platter with some bicuits, dark and milk chocolate and some fudge (bought from the farm last weekend). I had a tea and minute piece of fudge – with was so very yummy.
Okay… we’re not going to dwell on how bad eating was over the weekend and i hardly took any photos – so I’ll just give some highlights.
Lunch on Saturday was leftover pizza..dinner was tacos made with TVP…
Sunday was Mothers Day. I was bought tea and freshly baked cookies in bed. I didn’t eat all of these mind you :-).
Later we had breakfast…
We then headed off for a day at Belgenny Farm. Lots of fun but nothing proper for me (being vegetarian) to eat so I kind of snacked…
chocolate covered strawberries…
and some cookies in the car on the way home. Needless to say I rather starving when we got home at 4pm so enjoyed some cheese and crackers.
Later I dug out some fried rice from the freezer which we enjoyed for dinner.
Had a lovely morning walk with the dogs followed by the upper body part of my workout. Then came a green smoothie – using freshly ground flaxseeds cortesy of my new grinder.
After dropping the girls at school I had a cup of tea and a slice of grainy bread with hummus.
Spent the morning doing random jobs around the house. Lunch was a salad with egg…and homemade dressing. I finally got around to making a honey mustard dressing with equal parts (1 tbsp) dijon mustard, honey, olive oil and lemon juice from Kath Eats Real Food.I fully expected not to like it – after all I do like a creamy dressing – but this was REALLY good.
Afternoon tea – a cup of tea and a chocolate muffin (homemade this morning and on the healthy side).
This afternoons snack was pita bread with cheese, hummus, carrot and sprouts. Yum!!
Served with tea, of course.
Tonights dinner was a lentil bake. I’ve made it before and I love it. But unfortunately I’m the only one who does…
You can find the recipe at Attic 24. If you like lentils you’ll love it. I even forgot the peanuts and it still tasted great. Real comfort food.
It was a beautiful Sunday here – definitely more Summer than Autumn. I started the day with what else but a cup of tea and a piece of banana cake :-). Everyone played on their computer until Amy decided she would make us breakfast. How lucky am I? It’s not even Mothers Day till next Sunday.
She made us scrambled eggs, tinned spaghetti and toast. Served on our special plates :-).
We had planned to go on a bike ride and have lunch out but at about 11am I started feeling icky in the stomach and a bit light-headed. I had some cruskits with cottage cheese to see if that helped.
It didn’t – so I tried some chocolate – thinking maybe some sugar might do the trick. It didn’t work either so we decided to stay in for the day.
I didn’t really feel like eating but made myself have a salad (featuring falafel and homemade hummus) around 2pm.
I did start to feel better which was good. I was able to enjoy some afternoon tea.
We put on Avatar to watch and the girls decided they wanted popcorn. I wasn’t go to have any (since I’d already had the above) but it smelled good so I had a little bowl.
Drizzled with a bit of melted butter…
We ended up having a late dinner. It was new recipe tonight – tofu & noodle stir-fry – which was a bit too fiddly for a Sunday night. Amy didn’t like it. I thought it was okay. Kevin really enjoyed it.
Made a cup of tea to have in bed with an orange chocolate bar.
