Today Lara and I went to see Dad and Jilly so Lara can say farewell for a couple of months as she is going back to Durham tomorrow 😦 .
Knowing we were going out for lunch I had a really light breakfast of half a portion of Grape Nuts (25 g), 100 ml soya milk, 2 heaped tbsp vanilla soya yogurt and 1 tbsp coconut nut butter. 6 WW points.
At lunch time we were taken to Prezzo which is a chain of Italian restaurants. I had crab cakes which came with a garlic mayonnaise which I left. They didn’t taste very crabby but were pleasant enough.
Followed by a salad called ‘Arrosto’, which is described as “Goat’s cheese and plum tomatoes baked on focaccia bread with roasted peppers, caramelised balsamic onions, chargrilled artichoke hearts, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, marinated olives, mixed leaves and balsamic glaze.”
I didn’t eat the bread to save some points. The goats cheese and salad was good. I would have liked more cheese but as a woman on a diet it was a healthy option to just have a small amount.
I managed to resist dessert and just had a coffee. It is hard to know the points because this restaurant is not on the WW web site but I have estimated 14 WW points.
The restaurant had some lovely jars of squash and peppers in oil.
Another of just peppers.
They were quite beautiful.
For supper Lara chose curry and we decided to get a takeaway. I was determined to stay within my points today though so I chose to eat some of the quinoa and black bean salad I had left over from yesterday. It was fine a day old and only 9 WW points.
I did nearly waiver when I collected the Indian.
But managed to resist.
So I ended the day within my point allowance 🙂
