Breakfast - Green Smoothie
Oh it was nice to have a green smoothie after two weeks of cereal and yoghurty type breakfasts. I'm so glad there was plenty of spinach left over to take the sweet edge off the frozen banana chunks and the apple. Having a nice big dollop of peanut butter in it adds a good amount of healthy fats and means that the smoothie keeps you fuller and more satisfied for much longer.
Lunch - Cheese and Salad Sandwiches
with extra cucumber on the side.
The cucumber was right on the edge of not being nice any more, they are so much tastier when there is a crunch to them aren't they. But it was good that I managed to make it last the whole of the two weeks of the Challenge.
A little peek at what the sandwich looked like inside before I added the lettuce and the top slice of bread 😃
Dinner - Chilli Mince but with Cous Cous and Peas
Yes, you've seen this photo before, on Day One in fact, it's the nearest photo I have to my final meal. I have a confession to make ... I accidentally deleted the photo of last nights evening meal. It's the first time I've done this for ages and it had to be on the grand finale meal of my Challenge ... bloody typical 🙁
END OF CHALLENGE ROUND UP
Week One Menu
Best Meal of the Week - Chickpea and Potato Curry with Cous Cous
Worst Meal of the Week - The Pasta Bake with Sausages - those sausages are AWFUL!!
Week Two Menu
Best Meal of the Week - Shepherds Pie
Worst Meal of the Week - honestly there was not one that was bad!!
And what is left now ...
In the freezer I have a little bag of peelings and a tub of cooked chickpeas.
On the fridge shelf there is a tub of hummus, half a jar of mayo and almost a full tub of dairy free spread.
In the fridge drawer there are two onions, three carrots and about an 1/5 of a lettuce.
Out on the worktop I have some of the Lotus biscuits, the Shredded Jackfruit pouch, one Stock Pot and about a quarter of a jar of Peanut Butter.
How could I use what I have left to make one more days food:
Adding a couple of slices of bread for toast, to go with the peanut butter I would have breakfast.
For lunch I could use the lettuce, one carrot, grated, half a finely sliced onion and some of the mayo to make some coleslaw. Which I could sprinkle with the chickpeas and serve alongside the hummus and another carrot chopped into batons for dipping.
And then later for dinner I could make a portion of rice to go with the Shredded Jackfruit.
So in total, with a couple of little extras I have the makings of one more days food and I could make a panful of soup using the trimmings and peelings, the stock pot, the leftover onion and a half, and the carrot.
Nothing wasted and only the sausages thrown away, not a bad fortnights Living on a Box.
And not a bad end to the Challenge.
