I think I've officially had my fibre quota for the day:
Bfast: My home made super pooper scooper fibre rich muesli made from rolled oats, all bran, wheat bran, goji berries, linseeds and extra high fibre dorset muesli.
Snack: banana (we were out of apples)
Lunch: Baxters healthy choice carrot, bean and quinoa soup
Supper: chili con carne with wholegrain rice and broccoli
Pudding: chocolate brownie(s)
You probably think I've fallen off the wagon, don't you. Oh no my friends. These are chocolate brownies with a difference. They're made with the tiniest amount of butter, sweetener instead of sugar, wholemeal flour, lots of cocoa powder, eggs and ....a tin of kidney beans. They're really, really weird and should be vile. The children think they are. But they're strangely addictive. And best of all, they fill you up, take away your desire for chocolate and you can have just about as many as you like as they're a green light GI diet food.
However, I do feel as though I've maxed out on the beans and might explode if you walk to close to me with an open flame.
My halo is starting to get a little constrictive right about now with this healthy eating lark. No alchol during the week either. In fact only one glass of wine since 31 Dec (which has been infinitely harder to give up than chocolate and children's leftovers). I still don't appear to weigh any less or look any leaner but the virtuous glow you get from being good is much like a tan - it makes fat look just a bit better.
Right, think it's time for one more brownie and a bit of Masterchef to wash it down.
