I’m not sure how I think I did this shabbos. At mealtimes I loaded my plate with half veg mostly but I did also indulge.
Challah, beef, rice, cauliflower – I ate too large a portion of beef because it was so yummy. I need to stop at future after the first portion.
Cheekful of grape juice
Weetabix and almond milk
Plain Greek yoghurt and sweetener (eaten while kids ate their nosh)
Challa, Half a piece of salmon
Just one chicken leg, salad (mixed greens, mushroom, roasted pepper), spaghetti
Two lemon shortbread biscuits
A bag of popcorners, a banana, prunes
2 pieces of matzah with some beef leftovers and mixed greens inside
Having looked over what I ate, it doesn’t look so terrible. Only because I ate the biscuits and popcorners that I feel like I wasn’t so on track. Maybe I need to make a lower calorie dessert if I know I’m actually going to eat it. In the past when I’ve made things like courgette cake (which is so delicious) the kids revolted after a while….Maybe meringue. Or stewed fruit. Any suggestions? Portion sizes in general were actually very on track.
Today will be an outing day… More later.
