Need Sleep

Hi all, going to do a quick recap before I head off to bed.  I had the most amazing snack combo today – yogurt with blueberries and granola!  The combination of the sweet blueberries, cold thick yogurt and crunchy granola..mmmmm….I was in heaven.

This is really a fanstastic combination.  I never really buy blueberries because it is so expensive over here, but I think I’ll buy the frozen ones because the ones I ate was frozen and it was good.  The yogurt I ate was Yoplait and it was actually amazing…I ‘m now considering switching from Emmi to this one, it has a thicker & creamier consistency and less tangy compared to Emmi’s.  I’ll have to finish my tub of Emmi’s  first before I can switch to Yoplait.  As for the granola, I used this.

I usually have this as a treat as it’s pretty sweet on its own, by mixing it in the yogurt, it balanced out with the tanginess of the yogurt combined with the sweetness of the granola.

I also had the juiciest peach.

The yogurt and peach has kept me full for almost 4 hours.  I’ll definitely have this again tomorrow. 🙂

On a less exciting note, I made pasta tonight with Newman’s Own Sockarooni sauce.

Sorry about the picture.  I couldn’t get rid of the shadows at the corner for some reason. 😦  I always buy Newman’s Own pasta sauce because the ingredients are all natural with 0 transfat.  I will usually buy marinara, but I wanted to try this sauce cause the name attracted me. 🙂  There’s tomato puree, diced tomatoes, red & green bell peppers, mushrooms, salt, sugar, soybean oil, onions, EVOO, spices & dried garlic.  It’s also pretty low in calories – 1/2 cup = 70 kcal.  The only downside is that the sodium content is pretty high (21%).  I’m still looking for the perfect jarred pasta sauce.  Most of the brands  has got that starchy, oniony taste which I dislike.  I also sauteed some zuchini on the side with olive oil, salt and pepper.  As for the pasta, it’s Tesco wholewheat spirals.  I always stock up my pasta from Tesco because it’s cheap and they have more variety in terms of pasta type (wholewheat, organic, different shapes).

I plan to have oatmeal tomorrow morning, leftover pasta for lunch and yogurt/blueberries/fruit for snack.  I’m already excited. 🙂

Have a good night.
