The cheesy tuna was really tasty so I've posted about it separately.
At the start of this liver shrinking diet, you may remember, I popped lots of 30g portion of muesli or oats into little pots to store in the fridge. Yesterday I finished the last one so I made up some more as it's been really convenient. They should do me for a month or so, I should think. It's amazing how long a bag of oats or a pack of muesli lasts for when you measure out your portions.
Today's food is:
B: muesli, yogurt, bit of stevia
L: 2 boiled eggs, carrot batons
D: savoury mince and rice, yogurt. I might chilli up the mince and add some pulses - kidney beans if I can find any on the freezer and, if not, chickpeas because I'm low on protein for lunch. I'm finding it quite hard to get through two portions of protein in the middle of the day.
From the freezer:
The mince (already made and frozen) and the rice - just a small portion. Actually, yesterday I found a random pot of mash so I need to use that as well at some point soon. Fish cakes, maybe?
The frugal factor:
Breakfast and lunch are both reasonably frugal, especially as the muesli was free (a gift and I've just started on the last bag)
Rice rarely costs much unless you go for the very fancy stuff or the pre-cooked-in-a-sachet- to-microwave type.
The mince has been bulked out with all sorts of veg, lentils and oats which is why I haven't added any more veg to the meal. I reckon there's enough in the frozen portion.
There's still so much in the freezer, I swear the food reproduces overnight! It's a long, slow thing, using it all up, especially on a restrictive diet, but great for the not-spending now and in future months.
