So it’s that time of month again, and hasn’t it flown!! I can’t believe it’s a full month since I was doing my March summary. I have had lots of really good food again this month, again not depriving myself of anything and eating healthily along the way. Here are some of my highlights…
Weight Watchers bagel and two tablespoons of Tesco crunchy peanut butter 348 calories – I have been trying to up my protein intake which means lots more peanut butter, which I love. This is a delicious breakfast!
Look What We Found golden syrup creamy porridge pot with 20g of Aldi Sweetvine Californian raisins 274 calories – this was delicious! I have been trying to find these pots ever since and I can’t get them anywhere. If anyone finds them, please let me know where from!!
Delicious magazine rice salad with smoked peppered mackerel – http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/rice-salad-with-smoked-peppered-mackerel 325 calories – this used to be one of my staple lunches but my mum hasn’t made it in a while. I was quite disappointed with the first one I had but this has got better and is now back to being one of my favourite lunches. I love it 🙂
BBC Good Food Mediterranean scone – http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1867/ – with a tablespoon of butter 395 calories – I first made these a little while ago and like the rice salad haven’t had them for a while but they are quick and easy to make and freeze really well so they are great for a quick and easy lunch. Warm them up for 30 seconds in the microwave and smear with butter and they are delicious! Yum!
Salmon in coconut chilli sauce with a third of a bag of Sainsbury’s basmati rice 575 calories – I love salmon and this is one of my favourite salmon recipes. Although you think it might, the sauce doesn’t overpower the fish. It is just simply delicious.
Cannelloni with creamed haddock 688 calories – both of this months favourite teas are fish based. I am a bit of a fish addict. This is delicious though. It is out of a very old cookbook of my mums and she only makes it very rarely but it is so worth it when she does!
Apples in a bag/bowl – http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/family-recipes/apples-in-a-bag – topped with fat free Greek yogurt 117 calories – this is AMAZING! Definitely my new favourite recipe of the month. I actually can’t get enough of it! Try it… NOW!
25g of Asda mini jelly babies 88 calories – as I have been running a lot more and been doing a 13 mile run on weekends, I have been looking into energy foods for races to keep me going and I tried jelly babies last week and they seemed to work a treat. I didn’t feel as tired at the end of my run and they gave me energy boosts along the way – even if they were only in my head!
Thanks for following my blog this month 🙂 I have really enjoyed blogging once again and will continue to do this!! I love looking back at all the things I’ve made 🙂 and I hope it’s giving you all some inspiration.
Let me know if you have any comments or feedback on how I could improve the blog – or if you want any of the recipes that aren’t online so I haven’t got links too 🙂
Once again, thanks…
