So over the weekend I went a bit crazy with sugar - my ultimate goal is to cut sugar out of my diet. It is a hard one to do but I know it is not impossible. I do hope I can get to a point where, if I happen to have something sweet, that will no longer mean I'll feel horrible about myself and end up confiort eating for the next week.
I think I'm on the right track but as with everything in life, there are good and bad days. For now I'm only being strict with two things - I do not drink soda and I do not eat crisps/chips. Well, thinking back I did had a couple of chips on Saturdays we went out for a meal. I must say though, I did not order chips, they came with my meal and I did't know that would happen and yes, it was one of those things that I did without even realizing, still I think I had a couple and that was it.
I'm still proud of not drinking soda or eating crisps though, two weeks and counting!
I did manage to stick with the plan for most of last week, only on the day we had pie I was so tired that ended up buying ready made pastry rather than trying to make my own.
So..he is this week's menu, There's no fish there, mainly coz daddy D isn;t kin on it so I tend to have fish for lunch a couple times of week, and Harry usually has it too.
MONDAY - Dill seasoned Salmon with vegetables and salad (chips for Daddy D)
TUESDAY - Spelt spaghetti w Turkey meatballs in bacon and garlic sauce
last week we found the spelt spaghetti had good texture but needs a sauce with a bit more of body, so this week I'll make something a bit creamy - with bacon and cream fraiche.
WEDNESDAY - beef stew w spelt buttermilk biscuits
We ended up not having this dish last week so back in the menu with it :)
THURSDAY - Chicken curry
again, the actual chicken is ready in the freezer as it makes a quick meal for my work days
FRIDAY - Butternut squash soup, coz the weather demands!
SATURDAY - it is Doctor Who night and I'll be working until 4pm so I'll take a break and buy something on my way home
SUNDAY - Slow cooked beef w rice, black beans and veggie
in Brasil most kids will grow up with a daily serving of rice and beans, because I no longer have a pressure cooker I still haven't tried that with Harry but decided to make a dish out of tinned beans to start with and once he is used to it I'll start slow cooking big batches and freeze...a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do ;)
