What does everyone else feed their other halves whilst on CD? My hubby uses me being on CD as an excuse to eat junk so I'm trying to be more prepared this time with ideas of healthy meals for one. Anyone have an ideas?? Vx
well my oh was also getting takeaways and eating loads of junk so a few weeks ago i spent a morning making batches of spag bol/ shepherds pie (mince only...) and chilli.
bagged it up and froze it all.
now i just take one out every now and then and cook the rest ie pasta/ rice or mashed potato and it saves me cooking a meal for one every night.
i recommend it as it means i dont need to go in kitchen every night.
he also has l/f ready meals and salad/veg.
I usually chuck something in the slow cooker in the morning so it's ready when he gets home. That way I don't really have to cook and he's still getting good food. Otherwise if I'm cooking I cook the usual amounts and freeze "my" half so he can bung it in the micro at a later date.
I actually love cooking for my Oh and kids when I'm on this diet - and thay get healthy meals - better than when I'm eating (???) I also use my slo-cooker a lot, make a mince base and one day it's sheppherds pie, next it's spag bol.
I do quick cooking when on CD. Spag bog, pasta, curry with a ready sauce. If OH is away, the kids have pizza/pasta. Then I'll have a mental overhaul and do everything from scratch and make cakes and everything! Sad or what?
My other half is trying to each healthily and has lost about a stone since I've been on CD. He takes soup to work, either what I've made with loads of veg and pulses, or leftovers of what I cook the night before, or covent garden soups (the non creamy ones).
When I was on AAM he would have chicken or fish with me and then more of the veg and maybe a couple of new potatoes, or sweet potato mash. He also loves Chilli so I've made chillis and stuck leftovers in the freezer. I've also got the bread machine out and have started making fresh bread again.
I also cook a free range chicken once a week and use the leftovers to make chicken soup.....He thinks he's in heaven as I could never be bothered with cooking .
my hubby is cooking fr himself at moment or goes to his mother which he loves, but if i was u just let him eat what he wants he ll either get fat or sick of it thats what i do when im on a diet my hubby eventual starts eating better after a while lol ashley xx
When I'm on CD I'm a right food perv!!! I cook gorgeous meals for my husband, and I ask him how the food was after he has eaten it!!
I don't know whats wrong with me!! I love to watch him eat and enjoy food!!!
Oh dear, thank God he doesn't have any weight problems ( at least not yet - if I carry on stuffing him he will!!!)
Anyone else love to see others enjoying food!!
