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.
