Woke at 5 am this morning as we have an early run to the airport so just Marmite on toast for breakfast!
Am so excited about starting on what I hope will be the final leg of this challenge to rid myself of this obesity that has lived with me for the last 20 years and even more excited as there will be other people trying out recipes and giving it a go too!
I’ve been here before several times, so I know it’s never easy moving away from a modern diet full of choices and convenience, and just as difficult taking the time to cook from scratch, but trust me, after a couple of weeks it becomes much easier and for me certainly had the added benefit of controlling my cravings, losing weight and saving me money (average money spent daily was around £1 or £2).
Today’s menu for me
Two pieces of Marmite and margarine on toast
Large raw salad with kidney beans
Beef and prune hot-pot (made with a vegan alternative and served with broccoli)
Hot chocolate (made with a vegan alternative to milk- I’ll be using flax milk)
As a vegan this week I’ll be using some alternatives available such as a dairy free milk and an organic soy alternative to beef and will be taking some extra split peas.
I hope everyone has a great day!!
PS I weighed in and had put more weight on… I start today at 250 lbs and YES I stuffed my face with vegan pizza last night!!
This evening’s dinner- Hotpot with carrots and kale
