I have been reading about the Channel 5 program on the Australian Man who drove a juicer around America. Not literally but you know what I mean. We have a juicer and use it at times and will continue to do so.
I am cutting meat and solid dairy products out totally, that will hurt I love cheese. We use either skimmed or 1% milk so that will stay. I eat a wide range of fruit and veg and will increase that, oh and before I forget I am going to reduce the amount of bread that I eat as well. The carbs in my meals will be wholewheat pasta, brown rice and pulses, these will also give me protein.
Francesca will continue to eat as normal, Michael will eat much the same as me with the addition of meat and cheese, at 5. 10" and a 32" waist ( nearer 30" really) he has no worries. Considering that he is sitting beside me munching through a large bag of m&m,s and started his day with a KitKat Chunky he should be a roly poly!
Dinner today is this.
Kidney beans, chick peas,garden peas just blanched. Carrots, celery, and onion cooked under yesterday's bacon chops in value cider and some "warm" spices.
I have made a simple salad dressing to pour over. Michael will have this with his.
That is not skin on the top slice but the residue from the garlic and lemon butter that I pushed under the
breast skin before cooking on Sunday.
I picked up 2 of these at the Co op and we will have 1 today with some of these.
They were in a value bag and cost 20p each.
When the chickens came out of the oven on Sunday, I popped a tray of broken up bread crusts in to dry in the residual heat.
I use breadcrumbs in a few recipes but would not dream of buying them.
Reasons to be grateful
1. My garden brightened up by last nights rain.
2. The sounds of the birds chirruping to each other.
3. Having Francesca at home for the day.
4. A pile of books from the Library to keep me entertained.
5. An unexpected night off work tonight.
I have a frugal foodie post for tomorrow and now I am going to press a heap of fabric scraps and play with my Toyota.
If any of you are following the "juice" diet let me know what you are juicing, what it tastes like and how you are getting on with it. I am very
here we go again,
And now the time has come TTFN Pam.
PS I did like Sinatra and still listen to him but not " that song" .
