I am hurrying this post as it’s past my bedtime! I was babysitting tonight 🙂
Dinner last night
Baked tofu (marinated in Paul Newman’s BBQ marinade and overdone), potato wedges and carrots
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup soya milk
1/2 cup water
tsp brown sugar
in a pan over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until perfect texture 🙂
Toppings are an eighth of a stolen toffee costco muffin, dark chocolate chips, almond slivers and dessicated coconut. Heaven in a bowl!
20 mins elliptical
5 minutes row machine
upper body resistance
15 laps of pool
steam, sauna and watching E! True Hollywood story of Kendra
Burgen bread with PB, banana/toffee yoghurt/cheerio cruncher mess 😀
A big handful of these sweetened dried mango. They were a present from my Mum- she got them in costco when she was in the city. They are not cheap at £9 for that whole bag but they are delicious!
Tofu stir fry with black beans sauce. I decided to see if I could get by without noodles if I just bulked up the veg.
When I was babsitting tonight my friend showed me all the food in the kitchen and told me to help myself if I got hungry. There was a cupboard filled with crisps and chocolate. I thought I would be able to resist as I had just eaten. I hadn’t realised they would be out till 10, or that I would get to be starving by 7! I ate dinner at 5:30! I looked for healthy options like wholegrain cereal, brown bread or fruit but couldn’t find anything so ended up eating a big bowl of frosties, crisps, a kitkat and a penguin biscuit at around 8. Unfortunately that just lit the salt and sugar cravings flame and I had to go back for another packet of crisps and a curlywurly! I think one of the reasons I got extra snacky was that my beautiful little babysiting charge is just starting teething and is a cranky little soul. She had me stressing and taking her on tours of the house looking in mirrors and making up silly songs! I adore her but I was very pleased to see her Mum and Dad arrive home when they did 🙂
I like wholegrains with my meals 🙂
Take a healthy snack when babysitting!
When baking tofu: 30 minutes at 190c is plenty of time!
I prefer tofu stir fried, rather than baked (when the baked tofu is burnt at any rate)
* Laura I just tried to comment on your blog (11pm Thursday) and it wont let me! I hope everything works out with your laptop and that smoothie looked lush 😉
It’s almost Friday!! 😀
