No rest day for me this Friday! 40 minutes on the stationary bike doing intervals again. The program is controlled by the heart rate as measured by a chest strap that I forgot to dampen before I started - so it made me work harder at the start till the contacts were damp enough to give an accurate reading.
I had a brisk, energetic walk at lunchtime, walking to Bedminster, where I did my course a few weeks ago. I needed it, as I was starving late morning and weakened again...
I leave work an hour earlier on Fridays, and as soon as I got home I donned my trusty rucksack and headed out up the embankment to Caldicot before the sun set. All in all, I think I’ve earned the gluten free beer I’m currently drinking today!
Breakfast: Amaranth cooked last night in water then reheated on the hob with soy milk & a banana and topped with crunchy PB and strawberry jam. It looked a horrible gelatinous mess first thing this morning, but was actually a nice breakfast once the additions had been added!
This is the best peanut butter ever – available in 1kg tubs from www.myprotein.com. They roast them in their skins, then grind them with no added salt, sugar or fat. This tub has lasted us less than 2 weeks, as M agrees how good it is!!!
Lunch: Red lentil and vegetable soup with an Alpro soya pudding
Dinner: Marinated tofu (marinated over night in a mixture of gluten-free soy sauce, ginger, garlic and Dijon mustard) baked in the oven and served with a vegetable stir fry. Another good tofu recipe!
This recipe, like the tandoori tofu from the other day, came from this book. The lady really knows her tofu!
Snacks: Greek yoghurt with seeds, bounty bar & pot of melon chunks.
