This was a really nice light meal. Vegetarian too. Who would have thought it? Meatless Saturday night. I’ve only eaten one meat meal today and that was lunch when I had some smoked salmon on VitaWeat. I also had some low fat vegemite too.

For breakfast I had low fat yoghurt with some raspberries.

So how do you feel about low fat food? Do you like quinoa and kale?

    1. I think it’s the nutty sort of taste and the look that appeals to me Gail. Couscous is a little bland to me.

    1. My maternal grandparents owned sugar cane farms in Bundaberg. I am a big supporter of the sugar industry 🙂 I’ve always loved Golden Syrup.
