First things first I have to say I am feeling so much better and starting to have the energy to care about what I am eating. I don’t know where the weeks are going at the moment as they are flying over and it is that time of week again. Here are my eats for last Wednesday.
Breakfast I have not been having anything that interesting as still loving the oats
For lunch I have a tasty bulger wheat and roast vegetables with balsamic vinegar. I love roasting veg and having extra for lunch the next day.
For dinner I had a lovely chicken curry and roast vegetables. It was so tasty.
I can’t remember everything I put in but most veg would go and this time I did do things a little differently.
I served mine with some roast veg and also roasted some courgette/zucchini and onion that I added to sauce.
Chicken breast (we often have one between the two of us) in bite size pieces
½ onion finely cut
Handful of sugar snap peas cut into bite size pieces
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 garlic clove
Some spices that you like, I added grama masala, cumin, paprika and some dried chilli flakes
Chop and roast veg of your choice and cook in the oven.
Heat some olive oil in a sauce pan and add onion, cook until soft then add garlic and spices. While they cook drain a tin of tomatoes in a sieve. Once spices are cooked at the tomato and simmer on a low heat with the lid half on and cook for about 15 minutes. Add the chicken and mix then put the lid on and cook for a further 5 to 8 mins until the chicken is cooked. I then added the roasted onion and courgette/zucchini. Serve with roasted veg or brown rice (what my hubby prefers). I hope this all makes sense as it was a through it in the pan and see dinner!
Snacks have still been a banana and fat free yoghurt on the morning to fuel my run and then in the afternoon veg and hummus. I have been having this for weeks but to be honest I am a little sick of the hummus and need a new afternoon snack.
I think I am stuck in a food rut at the moment and need to look at making new recipes but feel like I don’t have the enthusiasm or time at the moment. I think I need a kick up the ass!!
I am still loving my weekly long bike ride and last week was great even though I definitely felt the effect of having a drink the night before!!
My weight lose is still sticking at the moment so any advice is welcome. I do get hungry (a lot) but especially when I am waiting for my dinner to cook. I have noticed that a lot of the American blogs are taking about the Paleo diet which I have not heard about and just wondered what people think of it?
