Well we are now over half way through the week and I still have food in my fridge for meals. I hope I am really showing you that you can make good healthy meals without spending a fortune.
Last night I prepared both my breakfast and lunch for today. I find doing it then helps me be more organised and eat healthily. As you know I have a very early start already with my 2 beautiful dogs. If I then had to come back from walking them and preparing my breakfast and lunch as well as getting ready for work, I’m not sure I would be as careful about what went into my mini coolbag!
Today was one of my favourites and regulars! Overnight oats! Whilst I have it a lot, you can still add variety by swapping quark with different flavoured yoghurts, different types of fruit etc.
Today I had a vanilla cheesecake flavoured fat free yoghurt. I topped it with 40g of oats from my HEB allowance. Fruit today was blueberries and a chopped apple. Leaving it overnight means the flavours and juices are absorbed into the oats. I absolutely love it!
I’ve been having a lot of omelettes this week so far but today I decided to go for something a bit lighter so I made myself a lovely salad. I chopped up some Romaine Hearts. I would usually have iceberg which is a bit cheaper but it was sold out by the time I got to Lidl this week! I added to this, chopped radishes, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and ham together with the rest of the pot of cottage cheese.
As it was cold today I also decided to have a Mug Shot. They used to be free food on Slimming World but have now been changed to 1 syn. As I very rarely use my syns, I don’t feel this is too much of an issue for me. Todays’ flavour was Sweet and Sour. If you buy the Mug Shots, look for the 1% or less fat ones to try and get the lowest syns. As a snack I had a banana.
Do you remember the left over Diet Coke Sauce from Tuesday? I always make too much for later in the week as its a really good way to save time. It can also be frozen if you know you won’t use it within a couple of days.
Tonight I chopped up a variety of vegetables again to dry roast in my fabulous roasting pan. To add a different texture to previous nights I make the chunks quite large. Tonight we had carrots, radishes, peppers, leeks, red onion and sweet potato. I keep the skin on for extra fibre!
You might be surprised to see that I have roasted radishes the last couple of days. I know that most people only use them raw in salads, which I did today also, but they are much more versatile! Radishes are a good sources of fibre, calcium, vitamin C and B.
When they had softened I added half a bag of fresh spinach.
To a frying pan I added 2 cod fillets. My pans are non stick so I didn’t need any oil. When they started to cook through I added the Diet Coke Sauce. I flaked the cod through it and left it until the sauce was bubbling.
I think the sauce tastes better a couple of days later.
Whilst I was waiting for this to cook I also prepared tomorrows breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Tune in tomorrow to see what I cooked!
It was extremely filling so I’m happy to be relaxing on the sofa watching Blue Planet II.
