Just got back to my own home for the first time in 8 months after doing lots of travelling and knew I had put on weight but not as much as I have found out this morning.
Went on the Wii and thought I had put my OH's little person on instead of mine when the weight came up so went to change it and found out it was really mine. :cry:Jeeeeeeeeeez
knew I had put on that weight but not that much. Now it is going to come off and the only way to do it is write it down and this is the way to go.

Going to do about 1400 cals a day plus walking and exercise. Back to Rosemary Conley books and plan some menus.

Yes got the recipes - will sort them out and post them.
The lentil one I cook in a pressure cooker but will find one you can cook in a pan.

The chicken meatballs are from Ainsley Harriots Low Fat Meals in Minutes which I add bits to and it is his burger recipe but I also uses it for meatballs.

500gms lean minced chicken (I use boneless thighs as they taste better)
2 garlic cloves - crushed
chilli to taste - 2 tsp worcester sauce
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint - 2 tbsp parsley or coriander.
1 tsp cumin powder and 1 tsp coriander powder (not in AH recipe)
salt and pepper

Put everything into a food processor and whizz them up. Make into meatballs - I got 30 out of 470gms of chicken and I had 8 so about 16 cals each)
Put them in the fridge for about half an hour.
Heat a non stick pan and spray with frylite or similar if you want. Put the meatballs in the pan and cook them until they start to brown then turn over and brown other side - I put the lid on now and cook for 5mins.
Pour over a jar of pasta sauce and heat until the sauce is hot and the meatballs cooked.

We get cheap tomatoes where I live (40p for 2lbs) so I make my own sauce but would be cheaper to use a jar and more convenient in UK.

There were 10 left but no sauce so just froze the meatballs and will use them another day.
Left over oven roasted veg is going in tonights Spanish omelette.

OAT BISCUITS
These are just porridge oats which I whiz - put in a bowl and add potato flour then boiling water so it sticks together then let it cool then roll out thin and cut out. Cooks at 180c/Gas 4 for about 25 mins.
140gms porridge - 13 gms potato flour and 300mls of boiling water. Makes about 30.
I just work out the calories for each one by the stuff I use and cut them out with a tuna can with the top and bottom cut off !!!!

SPINACH AND LENTIL SOUP - 2 portions - 250 cals each.
140gms of mixed lentils - soaked if using toor dal.
veg or chicken oxo cube - 2 cloves garlic, chopped.
1tsp each of cumin, coriander, garam masala powder
good pinch of Hing (from Asian shops - helps with the wind problem of lentils etc:)
4 or 5 balls of frozen spinach
500mls of water or more if you want a thinner soup.
I put the whole lot in the pressure cooker for 12 mins.

If you use Masoor lentils - they are the small salmon pink ones you do not have to soak them and you can cook them in a pan on the cooker in about 20 mins and they turn yellow.
I make 4 portions at a time and freeze 2 of them - if you make it thick you can eat it as a curry with rice and veg.

TUESDAY 26th JULY

Wedding Anniversary - went out for the day with friends - not too overboard but nearlly fell in :D:D
Ineedtobegood - no probs with the recipes - hope you enjoy them. I bought the potato flour in Holland and Barrat but it was a big bag and to be honest don't think I will use it all - easier to buy oat biscuits or use Ryvita type ones - Lidls are fine.
