For breakfast this morning I had an old favourite, bircher muesli (recipe below):
This is a handwritten recipe from my folder. I have no idea where it came from, but I can't take credit for it. It makes four serves, but the recipe can easily be halved or quartered.
Mix the following ingredients together and soak overnight
- 2 cups rolled oats
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1 cup water
In the morning, prepare the following ingredients
- 2 granny smith apples, grated
- 2 cups plain yoghurt*
- 6 Tbsp honey**
- fresh fruit***
- 4 Tbsp nuts, chopped****
Add apple, honey and yoghurt to the mix from step one. Serve into 4 bowls and top with fruit and nuts.
* I used a low-fat yoghurt but Greek yoghurt is nice for a creamy taste.
** Unless you have a sweet tooth, I don't think you need this much honey. I used 1 tsp per serve and drizzled it over the top of each serve instead of mixing it in.
*** I used strawberries.
****I used almonds.
Cinnamon also adds a nice touch.
I also had a couple of boiled egg whites with my muesli:
I read the paper then had my morning snack, a homemade protein bar and some celery:
After Rob and I walked TJ to the supermarket to get our groceries, we had lunch. Today I had salad with romaine lettuce, kale, coriander, spring onions, salsa, black beans, avocado, pumpkin seeds and spicy tofu:
My afternoon snack was a mix of choc protein powder, cocoa, diced plums and walnuts:
Dinner was Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup (I used low-fat yoghurt instead of sour cream, and cheese and avocado for the toppings):
I also had some trail mix for an evening snack (x 2):
