Unusually for me I didn’t have breakfast because I had forgotten the Oven Fairy was coming to scrape a years worth of dirt and grime off my oven. It meant my kitchen was out of bounds all morning but it was worth it because it is now sparkling clean again. He did a really good job so if you are local and need
a miracle your oven cleaned, contact them here. Thank you Mirella for the recommendation 🙂
By the time he left I didn’t have time to make the salad I had planned as I needed to fit in a dog walk between meetings but also needed to eat. Harvey got out all the ingredients and even the pan for cooking the pasta for one of his favourite meals so that is what we had; wholemeal pasta with tuna, sweetcorn and mayonnaise. 14 points (190 g cooked pasta = 6, 56 g tuna in oil = 3, 2 tbsp sweetcorn = 2 and 1 tbsp mayonnaise = 3).
I found a packet with 2 Lebkuchen we bought in Nuremberg which I had forgotten we had. I thought we had eaten all our Christmas leftovers and wasn’t sure whether to be happy or disappointed to find it. Obviously I ate it and it was delicious and cost me 8 points. I had earned 7 points though from an hours walk so that balanced out rather well.
My Ocado order this week substituted my chosen lettuce with Little Gems which I rarely buy as I am not a fan of their stalk to leafy part ratio and slightly bitter flavour. However, I can’t bear to waste food so I ate them tonight with cucumber, red pepper, pomegranate and edamame beans (80g edamame = 3 points).
I made a dressing up with 1 tbsp red wine vinegar, 3 tbsp avocado oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon and salt and pepper. I used 2 tbsp which is 8 points. This was good but I am still not a fan of little gems. I think I will make a creamy blue cheese dressing to eat with the other one.What else happened? Oh yes, Monday is weigh day and I lost 3 and a half pounds so I am happy with that. According to my scales at home I lost much more than that but I will go with their scales and I am happy with a loss. I am also happy I have been enjoying my healthy food and exercise again.
