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.
Can you come to my house and cook please.
Agreed, these dishes look delicious
Wow! All looks amazing! I’m going to try the Big Soup. I can use some of my leeks from the garden!
I made lentil soup with bacon too. So nice now the colder weather is coming in!
