Wholewheat noodles in soy sauce, with tofu and courgette (zucchini), which made a great, filling dinner that took less than 10 minutes to throw together!
Apple and cinnamon complemented this season perfectly! Thanks for all your comments on Tuesday’s post by the way- it seems as though the majority agree with me in thinking that autumn/fall is the best food season!
Breakfast today was pumpkin oatmeal with the last remainders of my open can of pumpkin. I have many more cans, but am trying not to go through them too fast as I am very miserly (they aren’t cheap!), so sadly it may be a while before it returns! Well actually, it probably won’t be that long- self control was never one of my strong points!
That miniscule blob was all that was left in the tin! Still made it lovely and pumpkiny though! All stirred in and topped with a crumbled pumpkin cookie:
Today sadly was my uncle Raj’s funeral. If you didn’t know, my fit+healthy uncle Raj died suddenly of a heart attack two weeks ago aged just 48. The funeral was very sad, but it was great talking to everyone at the reception and hearing all their funny stories about him! He was such a joker! The funeral programme:
He shared my love of running, and was actually running when he had his first heart attack a few days before the second one that killed him. He also shared my love of food, so they made sure that the funeral reception had lots of his favourite foods. The buffet included these cute mini quiches:
I had a ton of savoury food (quiches galore!), so by the time they brought out the cupcakes, I was too stuffed to eat them! But my brother made up for me by eaing three, and I did enjoy quite a bit of my delicious pumpkin gingerbread a few hours later when I got back home!
I knew it would be my protein powder that I ordered a few days ago before I opened it, but I was in for a bit of a surprise!
Soya protein? I thought I ordered pea protein?
Nope, looks as though I accidently ordered soya protein instead! As I had had some stomach issues with soya milk, I had decided to go for the pea protein, but as I can’t really be bothered to send it back and get the right one, I think I’ll just try this and see how I feel! So it called for a quick Protein Green Monster:
Wasn’t quite sweet enough for me- had to add some agave. The stomach’s feeling fine at the moment, but we’ll see later! Hopefully there’ll be no problem
So what are you thankful for today? I’m thankful that Raj’s life was one filled with happiness and joy, and that his wife and children know how very much he loved them. Better to live a short but happy life than a long and unfulfilling one, right?
