Day 303: Presidential Election

Posted by Paola

7:20am  Toasted cheese and onion sandwich with carrot + pint of fizzy squash + orange

12:20pm  Beetroot and pea salad with carrots

Afternoon drink: black coffee

We had a Tesco home delivery. I had no idea that frozen veg were cheaper than fresh veg and so I bought bags of frozen broccoli and spinach. It means I’m rather spoiled for choice when padding out meals. I usually have an (irrational) thought of saving the ‘good stuff’ (like tofu) but it seems silly not to eat as much as I want of green veg!

4:15pm  Vegetarian curry with broccoli + sweet spiced tea

I was well stuffed afterwards.

7:10pm  Carrot and cottage cheese salad + pint of fizzy squash

This was a salad of sliced raw carrot, tomato, chilli, cottage cheese with pineapple, sultanas, sun-dried tomatoes and lemon juice.

The Tesco Value cottage cheese has a lot of water and so I’ve gone up a notch to the Light Choices range.

I never thought I would but I am making do without olive oil. At just under 50 calories for a teaspoonful, it rarely seems worth it and so I add yummy flavour with other things.

8pm  Biscuit + tea

A McVities milk chocolate caramel digestive @ 81 calories.

I’m excited about the election. I wish I could stay up all night to watch the results come in.

  1. I never thought I would but I am making do without olive oil.

    I’m still struggling on that score – I really do like to fry up my onions before adding other things. But you’ll see I managed to cut it in half for the recipe I posted :)

    Can you really tell the difference that onions were fried in oil in the finished dish?

    I’m finding very few occasions to need oil in cooking. I either use a splash of water or balsamic to stop sticking or, for chillis and soups, just throw the onions and garlic in with the rest of the veg.
