So what was the plan for Shabbos and how did I do?
Friday Night Tonight
Before Shabbos came in, I had another boiled egg. and possibly some prunes,
Bought challah – Some wholemeal challah not eaten to excess
Beef in cider and sage (hopefully just as delicious as last week) with roast potatoes and carrots – It was very good and I ate a sensible sized portion and enjoyed it.
Small amount of grape juice – Yup
Cereal, dried and fresh fruit, plain yoghurt with sweetener – I had a bowl of raisin wheats left to go soggy, just as I like them, with a Greek plain yoghurt with sweetener, and a sharon fruit. I also had a few spoons of the children’s Honey Loops and a few crisps.
Starter, Challa, hummus, smoked salmon, eggs (maybe made into egg mayo) – I didn’t have any hummus, but did have challah, smoked salmon, eggs, and pesto
Main, Turkey leg, salad with beetroot and roasted peppers, pasta – I didn’t have any pasta, and saved the roasted peppers for later. Added avocado to the salad. I wasn’t really hungry by this point as the starter was the size of my normal lunches. So I took a smaller plate than usual and just had a small bit of salad and a small slice of turkey. I was actually really proud of this.
Dessert, pineapple, watermelon, cupcakes for children (and Husband if he wants) – I couldn’t be bothered to cut up the fruit and was totally not hungry so didn’t have any dessert.
Snacks – I hadn’t planned for any snacks, but after dropping off to sleep in the armchair after lunch for a few minutes I had one of the cupcakes. They were very nice, and not very big. I also had a few blueberries from the garden. I also had some prunes.
Matzah, cottage cheese, salad, carrots, smoked salmon – This was totally different from what I planned. I did have a little matzah and some challah but then made myself a wrap with salad, avocado, roasted peppers, beetroot and turkey. Was really good!
Reading what I ate, it doesn’t sound out of control but I think because I ate the crisps and cupcake I feel like I cheated from my plan of only eating real food and not nosh. 😦
