(Tuesday) 1 jacket potato, half a tin of beans
(Wednesday) 1 vegetable pie, chips, ssweetcorn
(Thursday) 1 chicken steak, 4 mini waffles, half a tin of beans
(Friday) 3 fish fingers, chips, garden less
(Saturday) 2 sausages, mashed potato, half a tin of beans
(Sunday) general Sunday roast
Followed by either a yoghurt, half a tin of rice pudding or a choc ice (last one is no more than once a week)
What are your thoughts? I do have a fairly active job, and like I said above i try and walk 2 miles every day.
Breakfast: wholegrain cereal or porridge, with added fruit. Some form of brown bread if you have toast. Proteins will also fill you up, so mackerel or eggs on toast, with spinach, orctonatoes and mushrooms for the latter.
Lunch: occasional low fat crisps are ok, but every day is just a habit. Again, wholemeal bread/wraps/pitta with protein and salad. Or make a lunch box of salad with protein; there are loads of veg you can add raw, like carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, baby corn, sugar snaps, as well as the obvious lettuce or fresh spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, beetroot. You could also have couscous, brown pasta or rice, quinoa with it.
Dinner: as with crisps, don't let dessert become a daily habit; it's an occasional treat. Avoid too many processed potato products like chips and waffles; as above, try brown rice or pasta, sweet potato etc. If you have less manufactured/breaded food and more straightforward chicken, pork or beef steak, fish fillet, veg or a side salad is a better accompaniment than beans. Learn to cook meat and fish with herbs, spices and light sauces for interest.
Edit: I actually can’t see a single vegetable on any day except Sunday
