My Monday Meals 19.05.14



The original variety of Alpen muesli with semi-skimmed milk and fresh blueberries. I don’t often have muesli for breakfast but I’ve really fancied it recently. Alpen is always my favourite as I like the chewy raisins but I also enjoy Dorset Cereals Simply Delicious Muesli. I drank a cup of PG Tips tea with semi-skimmed milk.


Haloumi and chicken salad

For lunch I had a favourite of mine, so apologies for the lack of variety! A Haloumi cheese and chicken salad with tomato, cucumber, watercress, rocket and a few other mixed leaves. We had three packs of blueberries as Andy and I both bought some without mentioning it to each other so I added a few and also a drizzle of balsamic vinegar too. As the weather has been warm, I drank a large glass of water with my meal to stay hydrated.


Pork noodle soup

Pork noodle soup with a Chinese five spice infused broth, celery and Sen Mee (thin rice noodles). We cheated a bit tonight and slow cooked the pork and celery in a packet of five spice powdered mix but to be honest, we’re all feeling a bit tired and slightly under the weather recently. Andy had the same but without as much broth. He’s not a big fan of soup.


Champagne Magnum

I had two snacks today, a limited edition Champagne Magnum which had a silver chocolate shell and I also shared a Braeburn apple with Annabelle.

    What healthy meals you ate. Pales in comparison to what I’ve been eating lately (think fries, ice cream and more fries) πŸ˜€ Interesting to see your home-made salad has no sauce. I know there are dry salads with no sauce, but a lot of people I know like to put sauces to go with their salads, for instance pesto or garlic sauce. Personally, I am not a huge fan of sauces as I find that they tend to make a meal more salty, making me feel more stuffed after eating.

    Hope you and Andy feel better soon!

      I would love nothing more than to eat fries and ice-cream but I’m trying to have a lot of fruit and veg in my diet for the baby. I’m feeling a bit fussy with meats and fish so I’m trying to have a lot of greens for iron etc.

      I did have a really small drizzle of balsamic vinegar but I’m not a huge fan of dressings as they taste quite salty, as you mentioned. One thing I really like is fresh lemon juice with dried mint and a pinch of salt. It’s amazing with cucumber and tomato.

        That is so good of you, thinking of the baby. Greens and vegies are definitely the way to go, can’t go wrong with that πŸ˜€

        Hope you’re having a good spring and looking forward to summer. It’s late autumn here and it has been very unusually warm – I feel like eating a salad!
