Roll on Breakfast!

Is it weird that I've just eaten my pudding and I'm already looking forward to breakfast?!
Weird or just plain piggish! I do have a reason for my yearning, my pot of almond butter is ready to be eaten so you now what breakfast is gonna be! hehehehe

Anyway onto what i had for breakfast today! I made a raspberry smoothie soup and it was ace,
I wanted something different today and this worked defo.

In the mix:

1/2 cup low lacto milk + 1/2 of water
1 scoop sun warrior rice protein (plain)
maca + gums + dsp soya bran
raspberries + small banana
topped with pumpkin seeds and tahini

After my breakfast I went for a walk before work to get some steps in. I ended up walking for 40mins which nearly made me late for work! Once I was home I quickly got ready and walked to work. Today I broke and had a mid morning coffee :) I also had a boiled egg, love um!

For lunch I had a rice salad while catching up with one of my fav mags. My salad included brown basmati rice, carrots, red peppers, 5 olives, mangetout and 2 tsp ground linseed's. I love linseed's in my salad the nutty flavor is so good, I also made a dressing from walnut oil and balsamic vinegar top nosh!

I also had a crispy apple, which made me feel good considering what was glaring back at me from my magazine!

When I got home I was pretty hungry and as I had to make a soup I decided some rice cakes and almond butter would see me through till dinner.

I made curried butternut squash and kale soup

with beets, broccoli and a dollop of hummus on the side, big thumbs up

Pudding was ground rice with carob, coconut and 3 dates topped with yogurt

I am stuffed to the gills it was worth it though!

I have to admit I am now off to feed my new addiction..........The Vampire Diaries! Have you seen it? Oh its sooooooooo good, I've seen the first 2 episodes and can't get enough.

Yesterday: 9575 steps nearly there!
Today: 14274 smashed it!

Question:

What do you think of mixed nut butters?

I'm making some tomorrow as I have a big jar of mixed nuts

  4. Hi Tam! Finally I'm back here on your cute blog!

    Please tell me how that mixed nut butter turns out- you know with all of the zillions of combos, I've never done a nut combo, just flavors (spices and the like).

    That magazine page was just wicked!

  6. Your meals look so good, especially that pudding (since I'm a sucker for all things sweet.. ;)).
    I've never had mixed nut butters before but I'm currently too addicted to almond butter.
    I really want to start watching Vampire Diaries too but I already watch so many TV shows, it's getting out of control! ;)
