I had a big bowl of Oat So Simple porridge (the original kind) with almond milk, strawberries, blueberries and a tablespoon of organic manuka honey. This was really good!! I also drank a pint of water with my Spatone iron supplement & a black coffee.
Mid Morning Snack
For a mid-morning snack I had a banana and a handful of almonds. I've really been craving nuts recently!
We ate lunch outside as we've been so lucky with the beautiful weather lately! We had panini with mature cheddar & amazing ham that Jonathan buys from the butcher's! I got this bread fresh from the bakery and it's so good but the breadrolls are pretty huge! This was half of one that Jonathan and I shared. I also had some cherry tomatoes and another pint of water!
In the afternoon I snacked on two rice-cakes with almond butter (my first time trying it!). If I'm honest I don't really get the hype about almond butter...I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and I do like it but I don't think it's all that different from peanut butter! I think this would be good with an apple or some celery too! I also had another coffee & sweetened it with some Truvia.
For dinner I made Jamie Oliver's Trapani Pasta with wholewheat tortiglioni. This is a family favourite...everybody loves it including Emilia! Jonathan asks for it almost every week and it's SO simple to make! It features a raw sauce of cherry tomatoes, parmesan, almonds, chilli, basil, anchovies & garlic...very easy and fresh for summer! You can find the recipe in Jamie's 30 Minute Meals cookbook.
We'd been eating a lot of junk lately so I was craving something healthier for dessert! I made a fruit salad for everybody. Mine was with organic bio live yoghurt, some strawberries, half a banana and cinnamon for flavour.
After dinner I also had another coffee with truvia. And that was it! I drank about 2L of water too. What did you eat today?! You can watch my video here:
