Makes mine sound very boring
Fri: Tuna in ginger and orange sauce, peas, green beans and asparagus. Quark with seeds
Sat: stirfry with duck in satay, gooseberries, jostaberries and cream
That is so not boring!

I did a big low carb shop today. I have trouble with portion sizes though. I'm counting 5 slices beetroot as a portion? What do you think of a lg can chilli con carne for lunch? It does have info on the tin but I can't make head nor tail of it.

Ha

So nearly all the carbs allowed when I was trying to do Atkins Induction back in the day. I never could do it though. Thanks for that.

Yesterday's Mongolian Beef was fantastic - it's from the new Pinch of Nom Quick and Easy book which gives both calories and carbs for their recipes which I find really useful. Very quick to prepare and supper tasty!

Usual things for breakfast and lunch
But for tea tried a new Birds Eye crunchy traybake dish
it was a vegetable curry with a golden crumb and a
fish fillet it was really good and tasty plenty of fish and
the good part I found was it is only 9.8g carbs if anyone
fancies this made a nice change.

The harissa kofta lettuce cups with preserved lemon yoghurt was a new dish last night and has become an instant favourite!

Yesterday - 22/4/2021
B - 2 rounds of toast - hovis medium white sliced
L - tuna & hard boiled egg mixed with mayo, batchelors cup a soup asparagus flavour, strawberry actimel
T - chinese takeaway - 2 bbq spare ribs, chicken chow mein - which went horribly wrong with the carb counting - I used the carbs and cals app but when weighing it out 1 - I was unsure if you weigh the noodles and the veg or just weigh the noodles and 2 - the scales changed numbers so in the end I just chanced it

Today 23/4/2021
B - same as yesterday
L - shop bought sandwich on malted bread 2 rounds with ham grated cheese & mayo on, strawberry actimel
T - bisto bangers and mash
