Ok here is where I struggle on a work day,
If I'm off work I have porridge oats made in the microwave with skimmed milk then top it with a banana and either strawberry’s or raspberry’s.
When at work I have a banana and a Nutragrain breakfast bar.
Today I have vegetable soup with a bun (bread is a novelty) I only had quarter of the bun as the veg soup was a chunky veg and I didn’t really need the bun.
I also had a packet of snackajacks but never ate them so they are in my drawer for tomorrow.
On a Monday we have a creamy chicken and mushroom pasta (sounds naughty)
We used to make this with a full fat creamy mushroom Campbell's condensed soup, we now have the low fat version,
1 large lean chicken fillet diced and dry fried,
Chop 6 large mushrooms add to the pan with crushed garlic (optional) when cooked add chopped spring onions. Add cooked pasta of your choice and then pour over the low fat soup, once everything is heated add mozzarella stir well and serve. We also have some garlic pizza with this it is just a small one for Asda and is cut into 6 pieces of which we have 2 each.
If we get hungry later in the evening we would have a piece of fruit.
So today isn’t the most slimming but it is a healthier option to what we were having.
Tomorrows packed lunch
Take a large flan dish and line it with wafer thin ham, chop 1 large onion and cook in the microwave for 2 mins.
Slice 6 large mushroom then add both the onion and the mushrooms into the flan dish and spread out evenly on the base.
I use 2 measuring jugs (because they arn't big enough but you can use 1 if it is larger thean 1litre) and add 3 eggs into each and beat them, I then add 250g of Fat Free Cottage Cheese with Chives into each jug and mix it together with the eggs and add pepper to taste.
Pout this mixture into the flan dish covering the onions ad mushrooms, I then decorate with halved plum tomatoes and sprinkle 1 oz (28g) Low Low grated cheese on top.
Now bake in a preheated oven 190°C for 30mins. Until set and golden on top
This is a really large flan dish and the flan is cut into 4 it does 2 days lunches for both Chris and I.
