well, this diet is going great so far! approx 2 kgs lost and my hunger pangs are pratically gone! having more selection for my allowable snacks helps too.
i've tried 3 meals from the cookbook so far and they are SOOO delicious, even if i am getting a bit tired of steamed veges.
meals so far:
fri - schnitzel and garden salad w/dressing
sat - cheesy mince bake w/ steamed veges (broccoli, carrot, celery, zucchini, eggplant)
sun - thai red curry w/steamed veges (as above)
mon - beef stroganoff w/ you guessed it, steamed veges.
tonight's dinner will be grilled salmon on garden salad, though we have 3 nights worth of cheesy mince bake frozen leftovers waiting for us. such a yummy recipe i can't believe its good for me, especially with that much cheese!
snacks so far:
2 sticks of celery with peanut butter (i can't believe i'm allowed it either! yummo!)
diced 1/2 apple and 1/2 orange w/unsweetened natural yoghurt
small handful of mixed nuts and seeds
80g tuna on garden salad (i'd never tried tuna before, YUMMO!)
the shakes are really yummy too, although my week's supply runs out on thursday. hope i can afford some more!
