I really would like to lose about a stone in weight, I'm not going to broadcast how much i weigh but i think in reality setting a sensible goal for myself which is achievable and realistic should make it easier to stick to. We will see... So here it goes... My food plan for tomorrow ad follows (Amazingly, i have most things in the house...)
2 oz porridge oats (dry weight)
1 medium size apple - grated
5 fl.oz semi skimmed milk
4 dried apricots (optional, could even save these for a snack)
Mix the oats, apple, apricots and milk in a bowl and leave in the fridge overnight. Or just eat it..That's what i do, taste pretty good.
Breakfast in a hurry.
ok so we don't all have time to mess about with all of the above so try this..
2 slices of wholemeal Bread
1 tsp of cinnamon
toast the bread
slice the banana and place on bread, ( i use a fork and mash the banana) sprinkle over the cinnamon...
tastes good... :-)
This is very tasty without spreading butter but if you must - spread your butter sparingly using a tiny tiny tiny amount of spread...
Whole meal Pitta Bread
1 1/2 TBS (yes tablespoon) reduced fat Hummus
Fill that Pitta pocket right up... yum yum yum
I love Pitta Bread, it's pretty versatile, mind you i must confess to liking it more when it's been filled by the lovely man at the kebab shop... Blimey, i've not even started my diet and i'm craving Kebabs.. Oh Dear!!!
Chilli Con Carne:
This recipe is for one person - if you are making it for more then just times ingredients by number of people ..
1 oz of brown rice.
3oz Lean minced beef ( you could you Quorn if you like)
3 oz's Kidney Beans, canned and drained
1/2 clove of garlic
1/4 diced pepper
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 small tin chopped tomatoes (227g)
1 tsp tomato puree
1/2 beef stock cube
1 tsp chilli powder (might wanna add more if you like it hot)
1/4 tsp of drinking chocolate
1/2 Mixed Herbs
Heat the oil in a non stick saucepan and cook the onion until softened.. Add the garlic and diced pepper and cook for another few minutes.
Add the minced beef, brown and then drain off the excess fat..
stir in the rest of the ingredients, cover and cook fora 20 - 30 mins...
Here's my snack: Not sure when i will eat this but i know i will...
1 tsp peanut butter...
You will need to make sure you drink plenty - 1.5 litres of fluid, that does not mean wine, beer, etc... Try not to drink loads of tea and coffee, i will be drinking a max of 8 cups a day..not 8 cups of tea and 8 of coffee but a total of 8. Try and switch to skimmed milk in your hot drinks..you will get used to it in no time...
Well that's my food planned...What are you having??
