Oh, dear! Not so good on the scales today, back over 77kgs after the weekend! Still, onwards I go! Here's my lunch from yesterday, then the rest of the post is from last week (saved as a draft then I forgot to post it!).
(Added - just home from WW and a yoga session there. Weighed in at 77.10kg - loss of .40kg - I'll take it!)
some strawberries in this batch...
My favourite, with beetroot...
It's gotta be good for you! I know there is natural sugar in it but no preservatives or imported concentrates...
The jugful this morning...
What do you pay for fruit and vegetables?
Tomatoes $4.48 (these are exxy but will last us a week and I just can't stand pale, insipid tomatoes)
Baby salad leaves $3.75
3 beetroot (4.98/kg) $2.95
Leb cucumbers ($9.98/kg) $4.02
Carrots 1kg $1.98
Mango ($4.98 ea) $9.96
5 Apples ($4.98/kg) $3.63
2 x Skinless/boneless salmon in springwater ($2.61 ea) $5.22
I've been looking at Jar Salads on the interwebs - a great on the go lunch that you can take to work and enjoy.
First I made a dressing of 1/2 of one mango cheek and 1/2 of a lebanese cucumber - whizz in a blender then marvel at the tangy taste! No fat!
Now layer the jar with salad leaves of your choice, carrot, diced mango...
Next, I added a can of pink salmon (in springwater, drained)...
I also shaved a bit of parmesan cheese on top too...
All ready to go - in this case to Gus for his lunch.
All he has to do is tip it out into the bowl and ... voila! Lunch in a jar! You could also top it with lean turkey or ham, tuna or fresh chopped chicken. Another dressing idea is avocado and cucumber whizzed together.
Put your personal spin on a jar salad and see how good they are!
