Maybe yesterday's little strop (stamping round, slamming things about and being lucky not to break anything) did some good, who knows. I've lost my way a bit since there's now no unpleasant physical reminders that I've overdone it, I think, and I need to deal with this.
Back to the drawing board, I think, and certainly no weighing until Friday as it was getting obsessive and counter productive.
Fortunately, yesterday was fine, no cravings, no over-eating, a huge relief. One day at a time . . .
B: overnight oats with strawberries, yogurt and sweetener
L: tuna salad
D: the west country gratin I made yesterday and posted about separately; rhubarb and yogurt
S: apples x 2
E: early morning swimming

The frugal factor
Oat based breakfasts tend to be great value.
Mary Berry said that the gratin is designed to be a low cost recipe and I can see how one could cut the cost more. It's a useful addition to my repertoire.
After reading up about it, I bought a pot of nutritional yeast. It's supposed to be good for you and some say it can replace the cheese flavour in some dishes. I don't know about that but it is not unpleasant, a bit of a flavour enhancer, giving a savoury depth to the things I have used it on so far. I sprinkled it on my baked beans last night and, while it didn't look great, it did something to the overall flavour.
Does anyone have info or ideas for recipes they use this in?
