Meal Mistakes

Sometimes meals do not turn out how we plan them.  To have three mishaps in a row is definitely unlucky!

Breakfast.  Looked good.  Blackberries and a banana blended with some almond milk

blackberries and bananas poured over oats and chia seeds.  By the time I had taken it to work it was a lovely consistency and flavour.  Such a shame the plastic under the blackberries had been put in the blender without me noticing and been blended so had to be extracted while I ate!

I didn’t have time today for a walk and barely had time to pop to a local shop – Tossed.  I was too hungry to go for a salad and instead chose a Thai green chicken curry.  Unfortunately they gave me a ‘Hot Greek with Chicken’.  This tasted ok and was on a par calorie wise with the Thai curry I fancied but it had some haloumi on it and pesto, both of which are the forbidden dairy!Tossed hot Greek So far today I have consumed sugar and dairy and had no time to exercise so I needed to do better for dinner.

545 calories.hot Greek with chicken I had very few calories left over for supper so I made the Cauli-Power Alfredo sauce to serve with spinach and mushrooms.  I made a mistake though and used a food processor instead of the Vita Mix to blend it.  Instead of the lovely creamy and rich consistency I had enjoyed before, it was just finely chopped and ordinary.  Edible though and low calorie.

247 calories.mashed cauliflower I have done ok with calories today.  I went to weigh in feeling rather anxious.  Partly due to the excessive eating at the weekend but also because the 6 pound weight loss last week worried me.  It seemed too much and I was expecting an adjustment.

I gained 3 pounds.  So I was disappointed but I am sure it will soon be lost; I am feeling as determined as ever.

I liked this card I was given today 🙂P1000765

Tomorrow I am going to cook all my own meals so should manage to do better.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    I wanted to make this Cauliflower Alfredo since the cauliflower was on sale this week. Thanks for letting me know the blender won’t work. I wonder if the immersion blender would work better. I don’t have a food processor.
