I wish I was there : (

Hello all how's ya weekend going? Mine is good. I've had a busy day at work so it went quick plus because I sold 6 contracts I got to go home early, yay! Right on to the days eats.......

I started my day with a big bowl of banana protein quinoa flakes this was UBER filling but as always it was a good thing as I didn't get lunch till 2.30pm!
This delicious bowl contained 1/4 cup quinoa flakes, 1/4 soya bran, 1/4 cup low lacto milk, 1 scoop of rice protein, small banana, raisins, maca, almond essence and water. Topped with tahini. Uber tasty and uber filling great start to the day

I CRACKED!!!!!!! Ok its been a whole week but yes I had a coffee, but it was decaff so am I forgiven?! I had my coffee with rice milk and I savored every sip. Maybe I'll have a coffee now and again but try not to have more than one a week which is pretty good I think!

When I finally got lunch at 2.30pm it was worth the wait. I had quinoa with avocado, raw carrots and mangetout, olives stuffed with almonds and an egg. I had a tsp of walnut oil as a dressing then I had.........

a scrummy pot of pineapple chunks topped with natural yogurt I really enjoyed this. I was also drinking fennel tea through out my work day its definitely a favorite.

As I got to leave work early I took advantage of this and went to Lidl after work (German supermarket super cheap but great food!) I wanted to get an exercise ball and they sell them there for £4.99! I got my ball and also some veg to make soup then walked the rest of the way home.

I made a really REALLY good batch of soup Lentil and Butternut Squash. Wow this was good
really thick just the way I like it. I had some GF toast with soya marg to dip, yum

Lentil and Butternut Squash Soup

stock cube
2 cloves garlic
3 slices fresh chili
bunch of coriander
1 small butternut squash
1 cup split red lentils
olive oil
seasoning, turmeric, ginger

Slice garlic and put in saucepan with chili and olive oil, add coriander and saute. Add squash
and stir. Pour boiling water to cover, add stock cube, seasoning, turmeric, ginger, lentils and stir. Bring to the boil
then simmer till all ingredients are soft, whizz up and enjoy with something for dipping!

I made a mint chocolate protein mouse for afters and topped with coconut,
so gooooooooood! I love the mint and chocolate combination. I love mint chocolate any which way!

Well I named this post 'I wish I was there' and the meaning of this is my older sister Jes went to Ireland today to stay with my little sister Leah and my mama. I'm so jealous I wish wish WISH I was there I miss them so much and its always a hoot when we're together, the laughter is non stop. I'm hoping I can maybe go at the end of April but I need to get a passport first remember when I lost mine in Barcelona! Fingers crossed I'll get things sorted I need my family fix!

I have a film to watch called The Reader so I'm calling it a night x

The Hangover is the funniest film I've seen in ages and Avatar got a big thumbs up


  1. Oh I liked The Reader! I thought it was pretty entertaining but my bf hated it. I will admit, it is a tad strange.

    My favorite more recent movie, although its not that new, is Doubt.

  3. That quinoa sounds awesome! You've got me hankering for a boiled egg now. Favourite flavour combo is almond butter and dates. I eat it SO much. Best movie I've seen lately is New Moon. Don't judge! :P

  4. I love the Lentil and Butternut Squash soup!
    Fave flavor combo would be chocolate + another nut butter like sunflower seeds butter :)
