Well this is my eats for last Wednesday and I hope you enjoy
For breakfast I made a oats (surprise surprise) with summer berries and topped with peanut butter. I think I am going to hold back on the peanut butter for a little while as really try to lose weight.
Lunch was a tasty affair with my first ever Salad in a jar. The jar was a little on the small side so I couldn’t get my greens in but very tasty.
I started by putting Balsamic Vinegar and olive oil in the bottom. I then added tomatoes, cucumber and various other salads bits and topped it off with 40g of cooked bulgur wheat. I shock it up and poured it onto a plate. It was very tasty and I loved that the tomato and cucumber had soaked up some of the dressing flavour.
For dinner we had Aubergine and Chickpea curry and it was so tasty as I cooked it the night before. The flavours really come together when you leave it a day or two.
Aubergine and Chickpea Curry.
1 Aubergine cut into chunks
1 onion finely chopped
½ tin of drained chickpeas
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
Spices of your liking, I used
Cumin, turmeric and garam masala
Splash of olive oil
Heat olive oil in a pan and add aubergine and onion and cook until onion is cooked and Aubergine is browned. Add the garlic and spices cook for about 2 mins. Meanwhile drain a tin of tomatoes in a sieve. Add the tomatoes and chickpeas and cook until on a low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with cooked brown rice or/and a salad.
For snacks again I had my last free Graze box. The after eight mint was my fav, it was so tasty. Not sure I can justify £3.95 a week on a box but nice for a treat.
Also a girl in my office bought in some home made cake bites and they are to die for! One of the nicest cake I have ever had. They came coated in white, dark and milk chocolate. I went for the dark chocolate and was so please I had it was soooo good.
I set my fitness aims on Monday and so far I have met the all. I am at spinning tonight and am really looking forward to it. I am getting more into cycling and wish I had more time to get out on my bike. I really enjoyed my 16 mile hilly ride on Saturday and can’t wait to get out again this weekend. I am hoping to steadily increase my mileage especially if I am to complete a triathlon next year.
The Olympics start on Friday and I am really excited. There is such a buzz about it here in England especially as Bradley Wiggins won the Tour De France. I can not wait for the Olympic cycling to start and it is the first event on Saturday morning.
There are so many events I can't wait to watch and will have to set up a schedule.
What are you most excited about for the Olympics?
