What I Ate Wednesday {28.5.14}


So I recently discovered these banana pancakes.  When I first saw them I thought hmmm, not sure, but I decided to give them a go.  They're gluten free & packed full of protein, which for me, as a vegetarian is a challenge to get into my diet.

2 eggs
Almond milk
Natural Yoghurt
Any fruit - I used blueberries & an apple
To make these yourself you just have to whisk the eggs together with some almond milk, mash the banana, mix together & fry in a pan.  You can't see my pancakes (which is probably a good thing as they kinda looked more like scrambled eggs!) but they are under that fruit somewhere! I topped mine with blueberries, an apple & a sprinkle of cinnamon but a lot of the ones I've seen just use different berries.
They were really yummy.  They're definitely something I'm going to add into my breakfast recipe repertoire, maybe weekends only though as it took me quite a while to make. 


 As you know from my last WIAW post we have an abundance of tomatoes in my house at the moment so I thought today I'd make quick & easy tomato soup (plus, I was pretty full from my breakfast still so thought a light lunch was appropriate.)  It was so simple.  All I did was chop up an onion & all my tomatoes, throw them all in a pan with some tomato puree, pepper & a few chilli flakes, cook for around 8 minutes & blend it all together. 



I had some left over 'soup' from lunch so I decided to make it into a pasta sauce for tea.  I sweated off half an onion, half a yellow bell pepper & added penne pasta, a few handfuls of spinach & the sauce.  I sprinkled over some grated cheddar cheese to finish it off.

I'm reasonably pleased with my food intake today - loads of veggies & fruit at breakfast.  I'd like to find a good pasta alternative though as I tend to eat a lot of it.  Do you have any good, lower carb pasta alternatives you could recommend?
