Day 290: Gem squash

Posted by Paola

1:30pm  Ham salad sandwich + tea

Very hungry, hence the over-loaded sandwich. Pre-diet, I’d have just made two sandwiches on normal-sized bread.

4:20pm  Squash soup with cottage cheese + pint of fizzy squash

This soup was made with the gem squash from last week’s Abel & Cole box. I’ve not cooked it before. I steamed it with the skin on, only to find out that the skin is hard compared to butternut squash. I couldn’t be bothered to scoop off the flesh and decided that, once liquidised, it’d be good roughage!

I added celery, onions, tomatoes and a tin of cheap curry sauce. It turned out as a fairly decent mild curry soup.

I added some cottage cheese for protein to reduce the carbs percentage so I would be full for longer. Yup, it worked!

8pm Tomato and cheese

I wasn’t very hungry at this time but, as yesterday, felt I should eat something or else get very hungry later.
