I was busy yesterday, mainly in the kitchen as you will see (and also the garden centre- I love this time of year- time to plant out some seeds soon yay!).
First up a clue;
Pumpkin tofu pasta.Of course you all got it from the clue- well done- stickers all round. Only I changed it up a bit. I cooked 70g quinoa and 100g wholemeal pasta first. Then I whizzed up 1/2 tin pumpkin with the block of tofu and 25g sundried tomatoes.
I mixed that with the pasta/ quinoa, and layered it with some spinach.
And topped with sliced beetroot. It is going to be yummy I am sure (but currently it is all in the freezer- fab for a midweek meal).
I also made some cookies for sunday tea (which merged on the tray to make super cookies!) ;
I used the good old Hummingbird Peanut cookie recipe, and I used some new wholegrain spelt flour. Ocado didn’t have Dove’s farm stuff so I ordered this stuff- it is amazing! It has a proper texture, and the cookies were so nutty and chewy and delicious.
Can you see?
I also did some snacking!
Some yummy mango with no sulphur dioxide! How exciting! This was also amazing.
And some delicious dark chocolate. Although for some reason I thought this was going to have cacao nibs in it, but it was plain. Still tasty (and some left for another day yay).
Today was a 9 mile run and I slept fine (unlike before the 10 milers where I was really nervous). I think for some reason 10 miles after work seems like a massive deal, but 9 was fine. The pace was still a bit changeable, and I managed a few at 9.55 and 10.09 in the middle. 96 mins (9.2 miles) so not bad overall.
I am off to start mega commenting so watch out! 🙂
PS- do you know what I saw on my run this evening????
A man doing a poo in a field. And the weirdest thing? He had toilet paper with him and even wiped his bottom.
Sorry about that just had to share!
