So, first I cook 150g wholemeal pasta (but make more if you want a bigger portion). Then I wilt 100g spinach (or however big the packet is) in with the drained pasta.
Then blend up 300g pumpkin (most of a normal tin which are currently by the tinned fruit in my local Waitrose- not the canned veg for some reason) with a packet of silken tofu, and a few chopped sundried tomatoes- maybe 25g. This blending takes a while as I only have a mini chopper!
Stir the tofu mix in with the pasta and spinach, and then share into 3 oven trays- I get the foil trays as then they can be frozen easily. Cook in the oven for about 25 minutes and serve (or freeze, defrost when you want it and then cook). The first time I had this I put some goats cheese on the top, as I love pumpkin and goats cheese, but I actually love it without cheese, it is so creamy and delicious. Enjoy 🙂
Last night was body pump, which was fab 🙂 A lot of the newbies from last week were back again this week, which is always good to see. I also managed to maintain the shoulder weight (there is a girl there- I say girl, I think she is in her 50’s- who does the same weights as me, and when she saw that I put the lightest weights away right before the track, she said to me that I might want to swap to them half way through, but I said to her that I managed it last week so I was going to make myself do it!) and today my shoulders have not been too bad- not as bad as last week anyway.
Post body pump was a yummy bowl of chocolate yoghurt and cashew ginger crunch cereal from Nature’s Path– can you see the massive cashews I got in it?
Chocolate and ginger go so well 🙂
Today was a rest day and when I got home I was really looking forward to a cup of tea. During the week I often get home and spend 5 minutes changing before I head out for a run, or aerobics, and I really look forwards to just having a sit down on a friday.
This is another type of delicious chai tea 🙂
Now I am relaxing and drinking lots of water ahead of my long run tomorrow- enjoy the start to the weekend peeps 🙂
