Yesterday was a challenge! It was busy and active what with swimming, ironing and then some energetic allotment work in the afternoon and when I got home after allotment (confession time) I remembered some leftover biscuits that I had bought for when my friends came over last week (YS because of a battered packet - I wasn't that unthrifty really). Somehow, I had eaten four - FOUR, eeeeek - before coming to my senses and committing the cardinal sin of throwing the rest in the bin and covering them with rubbish so I couldn't fish them out again. The semi-sweet side is that there have been no repercussions from my innards, the flip is that I now have to start exercising some good, old fashioned self-control again. Wish me luck.
I don't think (I hope, anyway) it caused too much damage really, given that the 'real' food was pretty good and I did two lots of exercise, but I will have to beware as the swimming is ongoing and it's now very much allotment season!
Today's food plans:
B: muesli with pineapple and yogurt
L: more tomato and lentil soup
D: Mediterranean stuffed peppers (a BBC Good Food recipe - I will let you know), salad, fruit salad
Ss: fruit x 3 (swimming day)
From the freezer
Just the soup today plus a few frozen chopped peppers for the pepper stuffing
The frugal factor
The muesli is a rapidly diminishing resource now. I wonder if it would be cheaper to make my own - must investigate.
The pineapple is savers tinned
The soup is home made from garden grown tomatoes
The peppers are wonky ones, couscous isn't expensive and the rest of the ingredients I already have or am adapting to match what I already have (e.g. walnuts instead of pine nuts, green olives instead of black ones)
It's quite a busy day so I'm hoping there won't be too much time to think of eating any extras!
