The thirty days is up and I've managed it. Not only have I managed it, I have eaten very well, made up/adapted recipes, lost weight (much needed) and generally enjoyed the creativity.
I am now 12 lbs lighter.
Now I'm off challenge for three days: today just because, Saturday for a birthday celebration (not mine) and tomorrow because it is daft to just do one day and then go off challenge again.
But there's no reason why I shouldn't post menus when I'm off challenge, when I can anyway, and I don't intend to go crazy and pig out on caviare and black truffles. I shall take the opportunity to continue to use up stuff in the freezer that doesn't fit into the pound a day ethos.
B: I am making some sourdough pikelets and shall have a couple of them with a poached egg. I haven't had many eggs over the last month and I have missed them.
L: ham and chutney sandwich with some fruit. I might even go out and buy some fruit specially. Bad me!
D: salmon en papillotte - which means salmon wrapped in paper with some seasonings and then baked - with some spicy wedges and coleslaw followed by a bit more fruit of some kind.
(It certainly isn't going to be a pound a day menu!!!)
With the £1.45 I have left over, I shall buy apfs - a pound will cover my use of herbs and spices over the next challenge and 45p is just the right price for my next pint of milk, when I need to get it.
