Everything I use I seem to weigh these days, it's becoming second nature ... the veggies for yesterdays pan of Vegetable Stew were first weighed before being cooked. It has it's plus side I know of course how many I'm getting of my five a day as seemingly your five a day consists of five portions of fruit or vegetables weighing 80g each.
So on this dish are almost 5.5 portions.
You should also vary the colours you eat, I'm missing red and purple here, a squirt of tomato ketchup and a few slices of beetroot would have solved that if I had any beetroot. It's no big deal because I've read that as long as you balance things out over a few days everything should be fine.
But I'll not dash out to buy anything purple just yet!!
Nothing is wasted either ... all the peelings from yesterdays vegetables were washed, patted a bit dry and then popped into a bag in the freezer. Along with my spinach stalks and my baby leeks I now have the makings of my final weeks pot of soup.
Just ten days left of this Challenge, it's looking hopeful for me being able to finish. I have all the foods in the cupboard, fridge and freezer and the grand total of £4.28.
What would YOU buy with the remaining £4.28?
