WIAW # 3

It is that time of the week again and I really don’t know how it has come around so fast. 

Peas and Crayons
For breakfast this morning I tried a new wheat free cereal.

It is not as nice as the eat natural, wheat free cereal and I don’t think I will get it again.  I am enjoying having cereal at the moment instead of my usual oats but having to watch the calories and make sure I weigh it everyday.

I was so happy that our local supermarket has started stocking Almond Milk and bought my first ever container.  I had it with my cereal and was very pleasantly surprised.  I can not wait to give an iced latte a try with it.

For lunch and I had a lovely fresh salad with pasta, roast veg and some shredded carrot and beetroot that added a lovely fresh crunch.  I have not done so good on the daily salad challenge but will endeavour to do better.

For dinner we had a lovely spelt pasta and roast veg dish.  It is so easy to make.

·         100g dried Spelt Pasta
·         1 Aubergine
·         1 Courgette
·         ½ Onion
·         1 Carrot
·         I tin of tuna in spring water drained (optional)
·         2 table spoons of red pesto (could use green if prefer)

Cook pasta according to instructions on packet and set a side.  Cut all veg into bite size pieces and roast in an medium/hot oven for about 20 to 25 mins (until all cooked through).  Once cooked in a large pan add everything together and stir through.  Cook until piping hot and serve on it’s own or with a salad.

I did have some snacks through the day which I forgot to take a picture of and it included an banana, apple and some carrot and cucumber sticks with homemade hummus.  I have not mastered that yet!


  1. I like the look for your pasta dish. i think i will have to give it a whirl.

  2. how many servings does that yummy looking pasta recipe make?
