I only just realised that I hadn’t posted my food count from Friday.
I’ve been making salads without counting the detail but as lunch today was one big mega salad meant to be really filling, I thought I’d better play it safe and measure everything specifically. I guessed high on the sesame oil (I added in one shake to help me process the ginger – I probably shouldn’t have!) and I put in a token 5 calories for the ginger/coriander mix (it was about a teaspoon of the two which I had processed together) but the rest are all exact measures.
|Serious Salad for Two||150g fennel||46|
|Ginger and coriander||5|
|A dash of sesame oil||40|
|100g Palm hearts||26|
I felt very tired this morning (have I reached an age where I need two days to recover from a hangover?) and had three coffees with milk to try to get myself focused on what needed doing. I had been looking forward to tonight’s dinner: steak and potato. Then it turned out that we didn’t have any potatoes in – I must have used them up without realising. I know Cliff is getting very tired of salad so I tried to getting a bit more adventurous with veg as side dishes rather than serve yet another salad.
I placed a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on top of the steak which I thought was nice but Cliff thought was a waste of calories. He would have rather had a bigger steak.

|Breakfast||3 coffees with milk||90|
|Slice of ham||52|
|Slice of Cheese||30|
