12:40pm  Leek, carrot and potato soup + pint of fizzy squash

The soup is quite tasteless – it’s just a warm mush – and so I’ve been adding salt. This time I tried ‘bacon’ bits.

Btw, my new small glass bowls from Ikea are quite handy to ensure small(er) portions.

Oh, that’s not bad at all. I thought that my fifth meal would have taken me about 150-200 calories over. Hurrah for small bowls and cooking without oil!

  1. I love these little bowls, and the size is perfect for a portion. I have quite large bowls and have been looking for alternatives whilst I am on my diet. I might visit Ikea this weekend.
