I can't believe that we are at week three already!
One of the tips I have learnt from 12wbt (and I have picked up many, thanks to the awesome snip tips) that I am using all the time, will not be a tip you will be expecting. I absolutely LOVE this tip. I have been using it every single night whilst making dinner. It is to have a rubbish bowl on the kitchen bench. Simple I know, but it's something I have never done before. Whenever I cook I just put rubbish on the bench, or carry some over to the sink or to the bin. Sometimes I will have a plastic bag on the bench and put rubbish in as I chop, but I have never had a bowl, specifically for rubbish sitting there with me and now I do and I love it. No wandering to the sink with onion skin, garlic peel, then carrot ends, then shallot ends etc. Now I just pile them all into the bowl and empty all at once.
Gosh I am loving the food on this program. What's also great is so is my son! Well my son is only having the dinners. I won't make him different food. Well I have never made him different food, from when he first started eating he has eaten the same meals as us/me but sometimes in modified form. I am having to modify them now but to increase calories, adding rice to his meal with the stir fry, larger portion of lasagna etc. I thought my favourite meal was the Lasagna we had the other night. But last night was steak with a creamy mushroom sauce! My son actually asked me if he could lick the plate, LOL. I did change the steak a little. We had eye fillet steak, rather than the rump and I also added some fresh garlic to the sauce. But it was the most delicious meal. That will be another regular in our household!
So I have the food under control, I just have to get the exercise under control!
