The baked potatoes are making a return to my diet regularly. Late afternoon, when my energy is taking a dip, a large baked potato often comes to the rescue served with something containing veggies. Today I modified a wartime Ministry of Food veg curry recipe slightly by using what vegetables I had to hand which was marrow, leeks and tomatoes.
The baked potato served with a marrow and leek curry cost me about £1 to make and was roughly around 500 cals. I didn’t use any fat.
I’m still eating over 2000 cals most days so I need to make some changes there and rein that in a little bit, just have a little bit less on my plate instead of piling it up.
It was day 2 at the gym today and it went very well but boy do I ache in places I never thought possible! No pain, no gain as they say!
PS: Here is the video that Barcroft Media did in my kitchen. They asked me to make mock turkey and talk about how I had lost weight in 2012 (80lbs) living on just wartime rations. It’s still hard for me to look at myself as I know there is so much still to lose but in many ways it also helps…
