There were a couple of new things I wanted to try today; my mid-morning snack came from a "kiddies" range by Eat Natural, called "lunchies". There are two flavours that I can find at the moment and today I tried the yogurt, strawberry and mango one:-
...which was absolutely delicious! There are very tangy berries in there that counteracts the sweetness of the yogurt; the only problem is that its over too soon! I guess the point is that it's a small portion for children. But at around 100kcals, it should be fine for an adult snack too. 5 bars in a pack, so it's a good thing that I like them.
The next trial was an afternoon fruit hit:-
...which also comes in a variety of flavours and is simply a mix of pureed fruit. No added flavouring, colouring, sweetener, water, juice... nothing. Not very filling, but it works out as 1.5 portions of fruit & veg and this one was certainly really nice. 2 other flavours to try and I think they may work -really- well as a Bellini purée with sparkling wine.
Having been a bit hungry all day, I opted for some comfort food for dinner in the form of a chorizo, chicken, courgette, butter bean and tomato stew with cous cous:-
Spicy (added smoked paprika) and garlicky. Very warm and filling. Hunger beaten :o)
Back to the gym tomorrow though!
