Foodie Friday

Firstly, I know it’s Saturday (here in Australia) but since it’s still Friday in Germany…… Goodness hard to believe that this time last week we were sitting in Munich airport ready to start the long journey home.

Secondly, I just want to apologise for not replying to comments you wonderful people have left on my blog the last few weeks. While we were overseas I stopped getting email notifications about them which is the easiest way for me to reply to them. I’ve still read them (once I realized what was going on) and appreciate them all. Hoping Kevin will be able to fix things up for me this weekend.

Okay, so on with Foodie Friday. As you can imagine I came home to a rather empty fridge. Nan had picked up a few things for me, so I managed to hold off on a proper grocery shop till Tuesday.



I’m trying really hard to make sure I only buy what I need, so I did a menu plan before heading out. This meant I actually didn’t spend anywhere near what I had thought I might. $150 in the supermarket and a further $65 on fruit & veg.




After a couple of days to settle back into routine, I recommitted to being sugar free (on a normal daily basis).  Even with all the indulgences I had in Germany (bread, cheese & chocolate anyone???) I’m very pleased to report my weight was EXACTLY the same when I got back. I’m sure all the walking played a big part but I obviously didn’t overdo things too much. Hopefully it won’t be too hard to get the weightloss ball rolling again.

Breakfast this week included…. scrambled eggs with cheese & salsa… such a delicious change to bread rolls & cheese…


rice crackers with hummus, tomato & cheese and a perfect fit shake …


and a return to my beloved green smoothies….


My very first lunch (at home) was a recreation of the lunch I had in Bangkok airport. Not quite as good, but pretty close.




Then it was back to my normal daily salad. With falafel….


and bean patties…


I’m forgetting to photograph my food so only captured one snack (first day back sugar free)


and one dinner – homemade fried rice.


Other dinners included takeaway pizza (Sunday night), nachos, takeaway noodles,  and yorkshire pudding & veggies.

Do you have any foods you are dying to have after a trip away? For me it was green smoothies and hummus (not together, of course).
