Hi everyone, hoping my MPM is better late than never! I had an assignment due this morning and - me being as last minute as I am - I was working on it over the weekend and didn't have time to blog - boooo!
I am definitely sticking with my oaty breakfast bowls this week, they are delicious and fill me up til lunchtime. I make them with:
2 tbsp oats
125g ish of Alpro soya yoghurt - I tried the almond one last week and it was SO GOOD
A couple of pieces of fruit - usually 1/2 a banana and a few strawberries, blueberries or nectarine.
A sprinkling of dried fruits - cranberries are a firm favourite at the mo
1 tsp of chia seeds
1 tsp of flax seeds
And maybe a dash of Choc Shot if I'm feeling fancy
The salads were not a huge hit last week, everything tasted a bit bitter to me, but I might try them again this week and have some soup too.
Snacks will be carrot and cucumber sticks, pitta, houmous, fruit and nuts. I didn't miss crisps, chocolate or breakfast bars last week and I think these tasty snacks helped, along with copious amounts of water.
My parents are coming to stay for Easter weekend and that means we'll probably decide what we're eating on the day as they usually like to go out.
Monday: Stir fry with sweet and sour sauce
Tuesday: Pasta with spicy tomato sauce and veg
Wednesday: Spaghetti bolognese
Thursday: Veggie sausages and roasted butternut squash, red onions and carrots (one of our favourites ever!)
Friday: Decide on the day
Saturday: Decide on the day
Sunday: Out for a roast dinner with my parents. I am also planning on making a chocolate cake for Easter Sunday using a Betty Crocker cake mix and a can of pop to replace the eggs - it really works!! And makes it vegan ;-)
I hope you all have a lovely, relaxing Easter! See you on the other side :-)
What are you eating this week?
