Friday’s Calcium Count

August 27, 2010

Happy Friday everyone!

I have some delightful plans this weekend that I am very much looking forward to. Some celebrations, time with family, dates with close friends, and, of course, good food!

Here is my Friday Calcium Count. I’m going strong! I still have to really plan my meals and think about where I can fit in my dairy, but hopefully this will become less of a conscious effort. Third day in, and my RDI is met again.


Oats cooked with 1/2 cup skinny milk and some water. Plus 1/2 a banana, and a crumbled muesli bar bite on top.


A delicious leftover grated vegetable combo that Ben made when he was feeling creative the other night. I heated it and then added spinach leaves and chickpeas. I topped it with 100g natural yoghurt.

I also had some low-fat cheese on the side. Bega 50% less fat cheddar is the only reduced fat cheese that I like. It doesn’t taste like plastic or cardboard, which always helps.

Afternoon Tea

Some amazing greek-style yoghurt that I picked up whilst running errands. Thick, indulgent, yum. I didn’t eat the overly sweet strawberry goo on the bottom.

Friday’s Calcium Count = 1000mg

Jamie Oliver (whom I absolutely adore) is on tv tonight – “Jamie Does”. He’s visiting Marrakech. Ben and I were there last August. Oooooh how I long to go back….

    Hi, I was wondering where you found the Evia yoghurt? My fave cafe uses Evia but they said it was only sold in bulk to cafes/restaurants and I nearly cried because I thought all my yoghurt dreams had come true when I tasted it.

    Hi Pippa,
    I bought mine from Colonial Fresh Market at Chadstone shopping centre – the fruit shop right next to Aldi 🙂 I know my mum recently bought some down the peninsula way too. So I know you can get it not just in bulk. Your yoghurt dreams can still come true! It is sooo good 🙂
