The diet is getting stale and I’m growing bored with food.
This is a bad sign, as it leads to frustrations and carelessness, so in turn the scales are not kind!
Today, Hubby had fish for dinner whilst I had a tomato and mushroom bake using the tri-coloured pasta. I added green beans and carrots to the side, and as the cheese was one of my A options, it was considered a ‘free’ dinner. Good plan then and I meal I really enjoy.
The bad plan is that I believe I am eating too much fruit, and in so doing, apart from the cost, my diet is not really varied enough and things are going wrong.
So for my second meal today, I experimented.
I part cooked some broccoli and peas in the microwave, and added them to some peppers I had in the freezer. I cracked three eggs and mixed them with a little milk, exactly as I would have done had I been making a quiche.
I poured the mix on top of my veg, added some halved plum tomatoes and put it in the oven for 25 minutes. This wasn’t long enough, so I set the timer again, and it was cooking for about 40 minutes (175º C) in total.
This is what it looked like when I took it out of the oven. The dish is the small one I use for my pasta bakes.
This is the bake out of the wrapper sotospeak.
And this is my meal having added salad (1 syn for mayo) and beetroot.
I have to be honest, it was rather nice, though using frozen peppers made it a bit watery at the bottom, so I can rectify that next time by using fresh, and I’d probably add some mushrooms too.
Another experiment on a theme tomorrow and I shall be making a vegetarian lasagna for Hubby and I. The one I made for him had too much cheese in it, so cutting down on that and weighing it all rather than guessing might prove advantageous!
This was my effort last time.
