The weekend is drawing to a close and the working week awaits. I have had a lovely weekend with the special occasion of welcoming a new granddaughter to the world. The world always seems like a rosier, more optimistic place when a baby arrives. I have had cuddles with her and she is tiny and perfect and beautiful.
Menu for this week will be as follows:
Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni
Sweet Potato Burgers with Avocado
Fish with Salt and Vinegar Potatoes
Steak with Caramelised Shallots and Steamed Vegetables
Looking forward to a delicious week of dinners. My diet has definitely improved so far this year, with far less sugar and fat being eaten. Intake of fruit, nuts and wholegrains has increased. I now take a small container of nuts to work each week and snack on these to ward off hunger pangs between breakfast and lunch. During the afternoon, I have another small container with grapes to nibble on; this gives me my hit of sweetness each day. Yesterday I made Vegan Breakfast cookies which are a delicious option for those mornings when I am running late for work and don’t have time to prepare breakfast. These are made with rolled oats, banana, nuts and dried fruit. They are free of gluten, sugar, eggs and dairy. http://blueberrygirlinoz.blogspot.com.au/2010/05/no-sugar-oat-drops.html

Wishing you all a fantastic week. May all your plans come to fruition.
