How did we do.
Well, we have been pretty good in not buying the bad stuff (chocolate, crisps, biscuits), and we even had salad for a couple of days (Hubby HATES rabbit food).
We also increased our exercise from three short walks to two longer and two short most days, determined actually by Maggie not us, weather permitting.
We have kept to three meals a day.
We use UHT skimmed milk, have no added sugar anywhere and no butter or spread on our bread.
Breakfast was a bran type cereal.
Main meals were:
Pasty, beans and mash
fishcake and chips (we were out for the day and shared the portion of chips)
chicken tikka and rice
tomato pasta **
sweet and sour vegetable medley ***
Final meal of the day was a sandwich or crackers and cheese.
Desserts, if any, were either an apple or yoghurt, but we did sneak in a belgian bun and an ice cream mid week.
I’ve improved my tomato pasta recipe ** by omitting the tomato ketchup and adding fresh garlic and ginger.
My vegetable medley *** consisted of
half a green pepper (sliced) 30p (60p for a whole one)
one small carrot (sliced into sticks) 16p
3 closed cup mushrooms (sliced) 25p
one small onion (chopped) 10p
one clove garlic (sliced) 2p
sweet and sour sauce
I put the sliced ingredients (except the mushrooms) in a pan and softened them in some of the pineapple juice, then added my sauce and cooked for about 10 minutes, finally adding the mushrooms and cooking for another five.
I served it with boiled rice.
