This week’s loss: -6 lbs (YAAAAAY!)
Lost so far: -6 lbs
As you may have noticed (because I mention it almost every blog post – there’s a reason I’m a weight loss blogger, after all!) I love food. One of my favourite parts of life is when I take a little bit of time on a Thursday or Friday and plan out my meals for the week, because as sad as it is, food just makes me THAT bloody happy.
At some point I’m planning to write a whole post on meal planning – which I find to be an important tool for both eating healthily and saving money – but for now, I thought I might just give you the inside scoop on my menu for the week. I’ll pop the recipes in for you if they’re available online too – don’t say I never treat you.
Curried butternut squash & split pea soup – I’ll replace the pumpkin with butternut squash (because butternut squash is easier to find), the red lentils with soaked yellow split peas (because they were out of red lentils in Morrisons!) and the olive oil with Fry Light.
Seafood & smoked tomato linguine – I’ll replace the olive oil with Fry Light and the sugar with sweetener.
Basil, lemon & courgette orzo risotto – I’ll replace the risotto rice with orzo just because I’m wild like that.
Fruit – apples, pears, plums, satsumas, bananas & nectarines
Fat free yogurts
Wholemeal bread (400g loaf)
Stir fry veg
Fruit – blueberries, cherries & mango
Linda McCartney Red Onion sausages
Yellow split peas
Vegetable stock cubes
Light coconut milk
