Look at that brownie, mmm and the cheesecake layer. You know it can’t be good for you! But it’s so good I managed to squeeze a bit of sweet potato in there to up the nutritional value. But if you are looking for a healthy treat – this is not it.
If on the other hand, you want a gooey, fudgey brownie, with a layer of creamy indulgent cheesecake swirled in, then this is the recipe for you.
Speedy breakfasts to be precise
As I have mentioned a few times, I’ve been having trouble getting to work lately. Well, not trouble per se, I am now in a routine. But that routine includes only 35 minutes to wake up and be out the door. This might be easy for you, but I tend to prefer a leisurely breakfast. Heck, I used to fit in a 10 minute work out every morning. Now I wonder if I can get away without foundation just so I can have a little more time.
So, I’ve been looking at ways to save time with breakfast..and here is what I’ve been eating.
a week of…breakfast
It’s Fitness Friday. I’ve been dying to tell you about this all week. You might have picked up from my other post that Ben and I were away last weekend. We went to Fitness Fiesta in Bristol Marriott Hotel. Living in the South West it’s out closest event.
Check out this video of the hightlights of the weekend. Can you spot me??
We had a really good time. And enjoyed some new classes and some old favourites.
I have been to one Fitness Fiesta before, About three years ago I went to the one at Weston-Super-Mare, but typically it was the last time they held the event there. I hope the same doesn’t happen to Bristol!
And before you know it, it’s Wednesday again! Which means…Happy Hump Day!.. Oh no, What I ate Wednesday! YAY!
So here we have a day of eats. This weekend I was away at a Fitness Fiesta (more of that to come later this week!) so I chose to photograph my full day’s eats. I later regretted it when I had to sit at a table with 8 people I didn’t know at dinner – I think I managed it on the sly Well, no one gave me a funny look anyway
What I ate (Saturday) Wednesday
I will be writing more about the Fitness Fiesta later in the week, so I will try not to give too much away in this post, so apologies for being a bit vague
It seems to have taken me a while to get to this one this week. I decided that I would report my week of snacks again (see last week’s post) to see if they had improved ithis past week.
- A week of snacks
I seem to have managed to make one snack a day from scratch, so that’s an improvement. so, in a bit more detail, what did I have?
Oh yeah, I bought myself a new toy.
I was inspired by my lovely friend with a fab name and finally justified the purchase to myself. It comes in a number of colours, but I fell in love with the bronze/orange.
Sadly it is the last ‘Love your Veggies Month’ post. Yes, the end of February is nigh.
To be honest I kind of left my WIAW to the last minute again (almost – this is Monday’s eats) so I had forgotten that it is Love your veggies Month – so how did I do without giving it
much any thought?
Not too bad, if I do say so myself
I’ve, or I should say we’ve been trying to perfect the art of slow cooker porridge. There are several reasons I’ve been trying it lately:
- Now I’m relying on the rail replacement for work I have to leave the house 30 minutes earlier than I did. I therefore need something quick in the mornings.
- I bought some steel cut oats, thinking they would be healthier than rolled oats – more on that to come
- Steel cut oats take 45 minutes “ain’t nobody got time for that”. Ok, some people have time for that, I don’t – see point 1
So, as Ben comes to bed much later than me, I’ve set him the task of putting the oats in the slow cooker before he comes to bed with the hope that they will be delicious and ready by the time I get up for work.
We have had varying degrees of success
