WIWA # 21

Can you believe it is that time of the week again.  Here are my eats for last Wednesday.
Peas and Crayons

 For Breakfast I had more oats with lovely fresh Blueberries.  I really love them and they are so good for you.  Win win in my book.
For lunch I picked something that  was not the most filling but was tasty.  I had some Gluten Free Rice Cakes with  Roast pepper hummus and some cherry tomatoes and cucumber  (somehow I didn’t take a picture of them). 

Dinner was a tasty affair of Gluten Free Pasta with homemade tomato sauce and tuna.
To make the sauce I heated some Olive Oil and gently cooked some chopped garlic and sliced onion and chilli.  I then added half a carton of Passatta (for two people) and a splash of hot vegetable stock.  I let it simmer until it reduced to the consistency required.  I then added it to the hot cooked pasta and added the tuna.  Very simple but very tasty.  I love adding chilli to tomato sauce.
I have been enjoying snacks of grapes and blueberries and have found these great gluten free rice cakes by Kallo.  They are only very thin and covered in lovely dark chocolate.  I would really recommend giving them a whirl.  Anyone also following weight watchers might want to know that they are 2 pro points for 1 rice cake and 3 pro points for 2.  I think they are really worth it.

I also tired a new snack of a thick Danone yogurt that was recommended to me from a friend at work but was also mentioned at Chocolate andBlueberries.    They are super thick and creamy and I found them to be filling too.  My supermarket sell them in two flavours, Strawberry and Blueberry.  They only had the strawberry ones in stock and I would have loved to try the blueberry.

I would recommend giving them a whirl if you get the chance. 

The weeks are quickly flying until my first 10k and I have to say that for the first time in the last 1 1/2 years I am starting to feel so much more fitter.  I am so pleased and although I love cycling I am also really enjoying running. 

My weigh in was last night and lost another 1lb so 9st 13lb (139lb)
