P-p-p PIZZA!

So yesterday was day one of shredding and i made pizza for dinner! My eating was good, and my pizza was extra good! Lawrence loved his and wanted a second one! (he didnt get it!) Next time i could rustle up some chips with his!

It was pretty simple, i just topped a tortilla wrap (it wasn’t wholewheat though, woops!) with some tomato puree and a sprinkling of parsley, i then added some sauteed yellow pepper, mushrooms and spinach (L just had pepper) and topped with slices of pre-cooked chicken and a grating of reduced fat mozerella cheese. Voila!

(sorry for crappy iphone pics, L took my camera home to charge overnight so i should get it today all nice and charged :D)

Then just grilled it until the side of the tortilla went crispy and the cheese melted.

Soo yummy and i’m not even a big fan of pizza! πŸ™‚ Lawrence was sceptical about the tortilla wrap, but he loved it! (and so did i) Where it crisps up around the edge is super tasty!

Lawrence’s was a little less colourful


.. just tomato puree, yellow pepper, chicken and lotsa bbq sauce πŸ˜‰ (he hates cheese! *gasp*)

You should definately try these!! Go, now! πŸ™‚

As for today, i’ve had my breakfast that didn’t include peanut butter, shock horror!! I had hot banana yogoats topped with cinnamon and maple syrup πŸ˜‰ and am now waiting for it to digest before i start shredding it. I can already feel it in my thighs and calves after yesterday, they hurt! Today, i know i will feeeeeel the burn! πŸ™‚

I’ll drink up my definity shake after shredding and have 2 kiwis and a teeny bowl of cereal. Lunch…Β  a Sausage & cheese wrap.. with a protein muffin & PB for lunch dessert. (First attempt wasn’t too good)

Today is Friday, which i am pleased about in one way (its the weekend soon woooo!) and not so pleased in another way (Friday is my late shift, i don’t finished until 7:30 & don’t get a breakΒ  😦 Standing for 6.5 hours is pretty boring!!) So i’ve packed up 2 snacks to eat throughout the afternoon, a definity crisp bar and 2/3 of fage 0% with 1/2 banana, some black grapes and 1 sq crumbled dark chocolate. Yummy!! I may eat 1/2 bowl of Covent Garden’s winter vegetable soup (soo good and high protein!) when i get home, depends if i am hungry or not! I’ll probably just want to collapse in my bed πŸ™‚

Have a good Friday bloggers!

Almond, Oats & more!!

Yesterday afternoon,Β  i had a lovely lunch, inspired by Gabriela’s post here.


AΒ  whole wheat wrap with 2 vegetable fingers, a low fat cheese slice, a grated carrot and ketchup. It was really yummy and warm! But i didn’t really taste the cheese, so i might take it out next time! No point consuming calories if i can’t taste ’em! πŸ™‚ I also had a teaspoon of PB and a naturally light bourbon vanilla yogurt with it.

My boyfriend came to see me in the afternoon, and like all Sundays we got a little bored. After thinking of what we could do, we decided to do my favourite thing and bake!! We made yummy crumbly squares!

Crumbly Banana Oat Squares.
Serves 8-10.

You will need;

  • 175g butter/marg,
  • 175g caster sugar,
  • 225g self-raising flour,
  • 100g porridge oats,
  • 2 bananas,
  • cinnamon (optional)

1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees,
2. Grease and line a small loaf tin,
3. Cream together the sugar and the butter in a large bowl


4. Sieve in the flour and cut in the oats to make a thick textured mixture.

WARNING: Do not attempt to try the mixture at this point, you will NOT have any left! ;)

5. Split the mixture in half and spread one half into the loaf tin.
6. Mash the bananas together and spread ontop of the mixture, add the cinnamon on the top.


7.
Spread the other half of the oat mixture on top of the mashed bananas. Don’t worry if some of the banana squelches out the sides, this will just caramelise and become even more gooey! :) It should look something like this;


8.
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on how efficient your oven is. It should have risen and be golden brown on top.

9. Leave to cool, then cut into squares and serve!
10.
Enjoy all that lovely oaty banana gooeyness! :)

There’s so many different versions of this you could make! To make them a protein snack, swap half the flour for protein powder or make low fat/sugar versions by using low fat butter and a sugar substitute. You can use any fruit you like; stewed apples and raisins is one i want to try! If you have a go at these, i’d love to see how they turn out and what you thought πŸ™‚

As i mentioned yesterday, i got some lovely new cereal from the supermarket, i had it again his morning with 1/2 a banana, some cinnamon a big mug of coffee.


Almond, Oats and more! This is seriously good, i cannot explain! Soo much better than granola! There’s something so yummy and comforting about oats, i love them in every form!!
