A week of two halves. I started the week without much enthusiasm for cooking or food, I ate because I had to and I was more concerned with sleep than eating. I made chilli and a good portion of that is in the freezer for future weeks and there wasn’t much coming off the allotment so I really do need to get back to planning more strictly.
SHOPPINGLidl, Tesco and Sainsburys the total spend was £14.15.
As discussed last week, I didn’t have good start to this food week because I wasn’t well, I did manage to shop and I’d decided to make chilli. The only real changes I make to this are to change the beans, I use chickpea and black beans and there’s some differences caused by transatlantic shopping differences. I didn’t manage photos of anything I ate on the weekend at all. But it was mostly toast and chilli.
On Monday, I didn’t eat much at all. (I know!) I made a wrap with vegetables and chilli for lunch and rhubarb compote and yoghurt for breakfast. I came home on Monday night had another wrap this time with cucumber and carrot cut up on the side and was in bed by 8pm.
Tuesday was a little better. Same breakfast, lunch and dinner
Because I worked from home on Wednesday, I could be a little more creative. I had a plum crisp and yoghurt for breakfast and a beetroot, quinoa and goats cheese salad for lunch. Roasted vegetables for dinner.
Thursday breakfast and lunch was also plum crisp and yoghurt for breakfast and beetroot, quinoa and goats cheese salad. For dinner I made a mustard sauce for pasta and stirred through Tuesday’s leftover roasted veg.
Friday breakfast was plum crisp and yoghurt and I was out for lunch. Pizza for dinner.
