What We Are Eating W/C 4th March 2017

Flyfour and I have been talking a lot over the last couple of weeks about how we're feeling on this eating plan. The answer is we feel amazing! We have both actually complained to each other that we feel we're being told to eat too much! We think it is because the portions seem to be much bigger than we are used to and we're using a lot more filling veggies and good quality protein.

At the start, I thought that because we'd picked a way that we could still have sweet treats if we wanted, that we wouldn't feel like we were being hard done by. However I've realised with the combination of the larger portions, the extra fruit we're eating each day and by changing the times we eat that we don't want the sweet treats, well only occasionally!

Anyway, here is what we are eating this week.

Salad and Cream Cheese Sandwich - a rather filling and lovely lunch!


Ratatouille and Pasta


I love making Ratatouille, it's one of those dishes that I can just stand in the kitchen and chop and peel and not really think about it and then simmer and bam, an amazing meal is prepared. I'm serving it with pasta and a side salad and we'll probably share this meal with the children over the weekend.

Sweet and Sour Pork with Noodles


I might actually change this from Pork to something else as I'm finding that pork isn't doing my digestive system any good! TMI? Well, you know that you love me anyway.

We'll share this meal with the children too, as they are a fan of noodles and it's only fair that we feed them once in a while.

Penne Primavera


I wasn't sure about putting this meal on to the meal plan this week because it is really just a ratatouille sort sauce (with almost the same veggies) with Pasta. However, as we are eating later at night I'm wanting meals that are quicker to prepare and pasta only takes ten minutes.

Rainbow Trout and Vegetables


I'm trying to ensure we keep up with at least one portion of fish each week and we've not had trout for a while. So I figured it would be a good option for us, I'm just going to bake it in the oven with some herbs and a small amount of stock or water.

Baked Potato and Chicken Breast


We really enjoyed this last week and even though it isn't a ten-minute meal it is an easy meal to put to on in the slow cooker and forget about until it's time to bake the chicken breast in the oven for a half hour and then serve.


So, that's what we're eating this week. What are you eating this week or what would you want to see featured on my Instagram feed this week?
