This has not been a good week guys, I’ve gained back all the weight I had lost so I am up another 0.8 lbs taking it back to my original starting point. (This may or may not have anything to do with the McRib I had yesterday…) I’m not exactly over the moon about it but hopefully I can lose something this week! Upwards and onwards, right?
“Breakfast” 12:04pm – Cinnamon Porridge with Soya Milk (158 kcal)
I was meant to have this with bananas but I didn’t have any in the house, total bummer. It didn’t seem like a lot of food at all when I made this up and I tried to eat this as slowly as possible to make it seem like there was more to it but I didn’t do a grand job of that either. Though this is surprising holding me up for longer than I had expected.
1:00pm – Tea with Soya Milk (15kcal)
Super Late Lunch 4:55pm – Moroccan Baked Eggs (170 kcal)
I’d be waiting all day for the boiler fixer to come round so that’s one of the reasons why I had an uber ate lunch and I’m finally not living in an igloo anymore! Hurrah. This was actually super tasty, though I didn’t have any ras-el-hanout on hand that the recipe required so I just chucked in a bunch of spices that I thought were kinda close to it, so I used black pepper, cumin, cinnamon and ground coriander. I ate this so quickly — as you can guess since I hadn’t eaten since 12. It was just what I needed to warm myself up and I love a runny yolk all creamy and delish! Though I wished I had chopped the garlic finer. Biting into garlic chunks is not the one.
Dinner – Cod Provençal (247 kcal)
So this is my first time cooking fish and I am strictly following this recipe with military precision because cooking fish makes me nervous even if it is just a fillet. The vegetables weren’t cooked enough for my liking and I wasn’t entirely sure the fish was fully cooked because it wasn’t opaque opaque and it was really soft but I didn’t make me sick so I guess it was actually cooked??! I didn’t finish the dish and there was a lot of left over onion and it just didn’t live up to my expectations. Bah. Disappointed.
