Day 2 Steak for dinner...

I started off the day with a smaller bowl of porridge, banana and honey and a cup of coffee.

Lunch - it looks massive, but there is a lot of salad in this yummy sandwich.

Dinner - Steak with Teriyaki sauce (I used mushrooms instead of capsicum). This is Angus' serve, I had less steak and 3 wedges and a dollop of sour cream. I slow roasted the wedges in the oven for over an hour, they were coated in about 2 tspns olive oil and some spice mix (Nostimini).

I tried this recipe for Choc Mint Squares (you would normally make it in a slice tin) but I decided to use mini patty pans so they are bite sized. A little dry but still tasty and nice with a cuppa.

Week 1 (Day 2)
I walked for 45 minutes this morning - it was freezing (4C) but I ploughed on. I had a Berry Trail bar for at 11am with a cup of peppermint tea (1/2 tspn sugar instead of 2!). My sandwich for lunch was so good. I drank all my water quota. I would have gone for a walk this evening but we had heavy rain so that stopped that. I had an apple when I got home from work (cut it up and sat down to eat it). I made the Choc Mint brownies then got dinner going. Actually wasn't really hungry by the time we ate dinner but it was good. I had 2 of the little brownies after dinner then off to bed at 10pm.

  2. Doing well there Joolz.

    I dont know that I could eat all that food. I dont eat much, my problem is, what to snack on. I will be making some healthy snacks so I am not tempted to eat the wrong things.

    Because of cholesterol(genetic)in our family we rarely eat red meat. Chicken and salmon mainly in this house, but looks like I am going to have to include more and more vegetarian meals. Hubby had his cholesterol checked again and it is still high (7.8) so looks like he has to take the drugs to lower it.

    The food looks so nice though.
