What I Ate Wednesday

5 September 2013

I had organic porridge (I've gotten the whole family hooked on this...it is so good! Flahavan's Quick Oats!) with almond milk, 1/2 banana and cinnamon.  

I promise we do eat something other than soup for lunch!!  It's actually total coincidence that we happened to have the EXACT same thing as last week!  But what can I say...this is the ultimate cosy, at-home lunch :)  Chicken & veggie soup with a poppy seed roll to dip with.

Here's what I had for my post-workout snack...a Pink Lady apple chopped up with a Danone Activia strawberry yoghurt.  In case you're wondering, when I say workout I mean an hour long walk with 6 dogs & a stroller ;)  

Penne pasta with ground turkey, tomato sauce, red pepper, zucchini and parmesan cheese...this was soooo good!  We went through a phase of being obsessed with this dish but then got a little sick of turkey mince so we hadn't had it in a while but I started to really crave it again lately.  It's very easy to make and fills you up!  Emilia loved it - she had seconds...and thirds...ha ha ha :)

Frothy decaf latte made with our new Nespresso Lattissima+ machine and some chocolate HobNobs.  Yummy!!  This time I used skimmed milk and I have to say it was kind of a disappointment as I didn't find it frothy enough...the machine instructions recommend using either semi-skimmed or skimmed milk so maybe semi would have been better.  I have previously used full fat milk and loooved the frothiness although it was pretty rich.  I will let you know when I find that happy medium - I'm still getting to know my new machine!
