What a good start to the day. Alan and I went for a run, 4 mile run to be precise...It's the first time in a long time that i actually enjoyed running... Alan even said he found it hard to keep up with me... Bless him, i'm sure he was just being Kind .
Very late blogging today... just ran out of time really..so here goes the food plan for tomorrow..
4 floz Milk
If i get hungry i'll have my lunchtime yoghurt or my ryvita snack.. Drinking lots of water helps keep hunger at bay. :-)
hummus pitta pocket
1 wholemeal pitta bread
2 tbs reduced fat hummus
1 low fat yoghurt
yum yum yum
Chili Con Carne
1 oz Brown rice
1/2 tsp of olive oil
1/4 chopped onion
3Oz's lean minced beef (I use steak mince - less fat) could use Quorn if you like
3 Oz's Kidney beans (i use the ones in chili sauce)
1/2 clove Garlic (chopped)
1 small tin chopped tomatoes
1 tsp tomato puree
1/2 chicken or beef stock cube
1 tsp of chili (more if you like it hot)
1/4 of drinking chocolate
1/2 mixed herbs, or your fave herbs..
1/4 chopped green pepper (optional)
Heat the oil and cook the onion until slightly softened, add the garlic and chopped pepper and cook for another few minute.
Add the minced beef, brown and then drain of any excess fat.
Stir in all the other ingredients, adding more chili powder if you like. cover and cook for about 20Min's
1 tsp of reduced fat peanut butter.
Make sure you drink plenty of water 1.5 litres a day, if you are not sure how much you have had to drink then keep a diary. I do and it works for me..
