My Monday Meals 17.02.14

Breakfast

Breakfast

Jordans Super Fruity Granola with Greek yoghurt, blueberries, strawberries and a drizzle of honey. I don’t often have this for breakfast as I tend to have cereal with semi-skimmed or toast but my husband had bought some Manuka honey recently and for some reason it made me crave this. Every morning I will heat Alpro soya milk in the microwave (as I don’t have an aeroccino) and add a large shot of Nespresso. Today I went for the Dulsão do Brasil which is one of my husband’s favourite flavours. I then had a cup of Clipper’s Organic Wild Berry herbal teas.

Lunch

Beef burrito

As it is half term, Andy was off work and we had lunch in Mission Burrito, Bath. I chose a beef burrito with gucamole, sour cream and cheese. I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo, but it was pretty big and I couldn’t finish it all. My drink was a fizzy mandarin flavour Jarritos.

Dinner

Dinner

Sorry about the picture quality. I was so hungry when I took this that I couldn’t wait to eat it! That’s why there aren’t that many carrots in the photo too. I had lamb with tenderstem broccoli, mangetout, green beans, boiled potatoes and gravy. Oh and the carrots of course!

Snack

Snack

An almond and apricot flavoured Eat Natural yoghurt bar with a cup of decaf PG Tips tea. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying to cut down on caffeine as I drink quite a lot. I decided to buy a pack of decaf tea as a few of my friends are pregnant so I knew that it would get used before it started to lose it’s freshness.

    You eat really well! The kinds of food you eat on an average day pales in comparison to mine :O But it’s very, very, very nice to see someone like you who shows no shame in eating, yet tries to eat healthily. Seems like you feel hungry a lot! 🙂

      Maybe we can do a special guest post of my Monday meals featuring you…? I would be interested to know what you eat in a day. I’m sure it’s not that bad.
      It’s my husband who makes me eat healthy food but yes, I love food! I am also hungry a lot. Just the thought of my dinner makes my mouth water.
      I think cooking has always been in my blood. One particular memory is of me making pancakes for my parents at seven years old after a family friend bought me a children’s cookery book. At my parent’s cafe, I would always be in the kitchen with my mum experimenting. I made bubble and squeak (mashed potato and cabbage) with bacon and melted cheese when I was ten.

        Who doesn’t get hungry a lot? There’s so many kinds of cuisine around us today, tempting us to try them. I have to keep a watch on my intake of food, though, since I get stomach ulcers easily. Which makes for an interesting diet.

        Wow, you learnt to cook from a young age. You must have learnt a lot over the years with all that practising in the kitchen, and today can make some impressive dishes (which I want to see!).

        I’m very flattered at the suggestion of being a guest poster on your blog. I don’t mind at all, but it really is up to you if you’d like me to. Chuck me a tweet on Twitter if you’re keen 🙂
