The diet wagon that is! Well, mostly. Ignore Sunday, it was Mother’s Day and I fell off it headfirst into a box of Lindt chocolates before staggering out and tripping arse over tip into some Maltesers. What can I say? I’ve always been a bit clumsy.
A small selection of my recent eats, I won’t bore you with the recipes unless you want to see one in particular, but from top left and going clockwise: protein pancakes, stuffed peppers, king prawn salad and courgette fritters (the bomb.com), brussel sprouts with garlic parmesan and chicken.
In an effort to be able to get all my veggies in the one shop, I went to a local farm store over the weekend and I was BLOWN AWAY by the variety and quality which was apparent as soon as you walked through the door. Nothing prepackaged, peppers the size of Leila’s head and prices that floored me. I walked out with 4 carrier bag-fulls for less than £15 – throw in a packet of chicken breasts, some pork medallions and my weekly food bill was under £25. There should be next to no waste this week too as I was able to select exactly what I needed, in the quantity I wanted it.
Is it worth me investigating a proper butchers? I’ve only ever been in one once or twice to buy some steak for a special occassion. T’was very, very expensive and I think it put me off a bit.
But here comes a slight downer, I haven’t actually lost any significant weight. I’ve been doing it for nearly a month… 1200kcal daily target and I’m usually just under that. I’ve had a total of 5 piggy days (spread out) since I started and I’m in a bloody holding pattern. Time to up the exercise? Bah.
Any of you currently following a healther eating plan? How are you doing with it?
