Have been feeling a bit under the weather so not much of an appetite, so today’s breakfast was something I was not looking forward to…
Grilled kidney and bacon
1 slice toast and butter
It is the kidney I really wasn’t looking forward to, it just looks like a kidney! I think I completely overcooked it! I really struggled to eat it and only managed a few bites, gave the rest to my husband. Not sure if it’s because I’ve lost my appetite slightly or I just don’t like it! I managed the bacon and toast. Then there was something quite comforting about the hot grapefruit. So much so that I ended up having the whole thing!
1 slice crispbread
Cottage cheese is another of these things I remember my mum having loads when I was younger as part of her many diets! It doesn’t advise on quantities, I again wasn’t hungry so only had a few spoonfuls of the cottage cheese. Pretty sure you could eat an entire cucumber and not have to worry about calories!
I made the following clear soup recipe from the book
Clear tomato soup
20oz can tomato juice
2oz can tomato purée
1 slice of onion
Third of a pint of chicken stock
Place all the ingredients in a pan, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain and serve.
Simple! I thought this was quite delicious, but my fellow diners didn’t agree! It is very very thin as you would expect but I thought it had a lovely strong tomato flavour. I do prefer proper thick soup and to be honest I think a thicker soup is just as healthy, yes there is more calories if you use potato as a thickener.
We just had salmon and green beans although we steamed the salmon rather than grill and steamed the beans as well. Was tempted to make a quick tartare sauce but was nice enough on its own. Not much to say about the yoghurt! It was nice enough.
Overall another ok day. I’ve not had a great appetite anyway so not sure if that’s why I’ve not been hungry between meals and not had a single snack today. Am glad the offal related elements of the diet are over, not my favourite!
