We are now on day two of healthy eating week and I thought I would share some of my efforts so far.
I didn’t get off to the best start, I did well with the wholegrains challenge on Monday but forgot to take photo’s of my meals!
Better luck on Tuesday and here are my meals for today –
I started strong at breakfast and included wholegrains and 2 portions of my “5 a day”
toasted wholegrain bread with peanut butter and banana and a glass of fresh orange juice
Lunch was some tasty homemade soup, I used this recipe – for “Big Soup” a hearty vegetable soup with lentil and barley – more veg and grains here!
The recipe includes bacon lardons and chicken stock but the bacon could be left out and the stock replaced with a vegetable one to make this a vegetarian dish.
For dinner I opted for a new recipe – cauliflower, chickpea and potato curry and served this with brown rice.
This was an easy recipe to follow and made a really nice creamy coconut curry. I used cauliflower, sweet potato and chickpeas in this and also added a red pepper that was lurking in the bottom of the fridge needing used.
