Elz0301 food diary


Full Member
Hi I'm going to start a food diary, maybe us RC ladies can compare notes and meal suggestions as it can get a bit dull if u stick to the same old stuff!

So far today

B - special k and ss milk
L will be couscous (50g dry weight) with 1/2 tsp of veg stock powder (make with 125ml boiling water and just cover while water absorbs). While couscous is absorbing I chopped one tomato, 1/4 cucumber and half red pepper into little chunks. And 2 spring onions. Mix all together add squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle of basil. 160 cal total and there's loads there or halve and have it (its meant to be recipe for 2) with some ham / prawns/ chicken.

The couscous recipe is RC and u can add chilli but that's too spicy for me......and I had an incident where I accidentally rubbed chilli in my eye once which has put me off!

My snacks are going to be an alpen light bar and 150g strawberries. Not sure what I'll rustle up for dinner as shopping day tomorrow so not a lot in!

Had 3 alpen light bars lucky they're only 63 Cals each, bad really but its cos I got stuck at work late and was really hungry and left my pear at home which was my emergency snack.

Rachel that couscous is so easy to make and yummy.

Dinner tonight is veg rice (tesco) with added veg and some chopped up meat.....need to tot up cals but lunch was 160 so should be within my limit which is 1600.

537 - half packet of tesco value rice, 150g mushroom, half red onion and 33g pepperoni - cook rice (I microwave it) while it is cooking chop pepperoni up into smaller pieces and dry fry in pan so little crispy, put in bowl while frying onion and mushrooms off in pan (can use any veg really like pepper, etc) when cooked add cooked rice and pepperoni and mix together, Mmmmm my partner loves it. Pepperoni is fairly high in fat so I use this as treat meal.

I've still got 280 left so later might gave some fruit and yoghurt .....after I've been food shopping!
