Weigh in news: 2 lbs off this week. Nearly three, in fact, but as I measure in whole pounds, not quite enough! I'm now just 2lbs off hitting the target Dr C set me of losing 10% of body weight, my BMI has gone shooting down and all in all, it's looking much more positive that it was six months ago.
Today's plans (with a portion check):
B: muesli and yogurt (1 protein, 1 dairy)
L: boiled eggs and carrot batons (1 protein - too little, 2 veg)
D: salmon, chips and salad; fruit yogurt (1 protein - may be a bit more depending on fish size, 2 carbs, 1 veg, 1 dairy)
Ss: apples (2 fruit)
Yup - spot on as the possible extra protein for dinner will balance having less at lunch. Sometimes that just cannot be helped.
From the freezer:
Nothing today. Shame.
The frugal factor:
The salmon is the only expensive thing and may take the overall cost above £2.00, the rest is all moderate or low cost.
The sardine on toast think was nice.
I popped a can of sardines in sauce (Savers) into my mini-zizzer with a bit of mayo, some horseradish, a good shake of lemon juice, some salt and 10g finely grated low fat cheddar and I zizzed and zizzed it into a nearly smooth paste. Spread on wholemeal toast, sprinkled with the other 10g of cheese (to make one dairy portion) and then browned under the grill, it was absolutely delicious and filling as well as being very good for me. I didn't remember to take a photo until I'd eaten it all, unfortunately!
I didn't need all the sardine mixture so I've popped the rest in a little pot and it will go in the freezer in hopes that it freezes OK.
What are your frugal food plans for today?
