Breakfast - Weetabix with 1/3 tin of Sliced Peaches
Orange juice with a slice of lemon
I wasn't in the mood for porridge, so knowing that I have more than enough Weetabix for the week I had that instead. I have really gone off porridge at the moment … 75p wasted methinks ☹
I used the slice of lemon that had been in my early morning mug of hot water in the glass for my orange juice, just for a bit of extra flavour.
Not long after breakfast I got together the ingredients for my dinnertime soup.
Dinner - Spicy Tomato Soup
Spicy Tomato Soup
2/3 tin of tomatoes
2 sticks of celery
2 cloves garlic
Chop the vegetables and garlic and then cook gently in a saucepan in a tablespoon of oil. Add the tinned tomatoes, herbs and chilli flakes and leave to simmer away gently for 40-60 minutes or until all your veggies are nice and soft. Season to taste then whizz it up with a stick blender, leaving it as chunky or getting it as smooth as you like it to be.
Serve and enjoy.
Gosh this was tasty, possibly the best soup I have made for a long time and so simple. The flavour was very dense and with each spoonful the chilli heat built up, just what I needed on a very cold November day.
For my tea I was going to have some of my pasta and sauce with a sausage cut into three and rolled up to make meatballs … but I wasn't hungry … so I didn't. I'm thinking that because my food is pretty nutrient dense and reasonably healthy it's curbing my previous snacky appetite, it seems strange but I'm not eating just for eating's sake, so if I'm not hungry I just have a cup of coffee.
Five a Day = 5
Not too bad over just two meals.
