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 Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. 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 do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. 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. 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.
