Foodie Friday

Well, since I missed last weeks Foodie Friday I have quite a bit to share with you. I’m pretty sure I already mentioned I’m back doing the “almost” no sugar thing. It’s working great again. Lack of interest in food, getting full quicker, LOTS more energy and obviously some weight loss. The only downside is that I’ve been spending a LOT of time in the kitchen – lucky I’ve got that extra energy.

So what have I been enjoying? Breakfast is still mostly a green smoothie, but some days I’m in the mood for something different… like scrambled eggs & salsa…


or banana on toast with a protein shake…


or a protein pancake…


Lunch is usually a salad with bean patties, hummus & pineapple… unless I’m lucky enough to go out for lunch to a local cafe….


or crave a bread roll…


or some stir-fried veggies….


or a change of pace with a mexe-bean salad….


Dinner is where you will find the most variety and I’ve been really good at including a couple of new recipes into the menu plan each week. Some have been winners, some edible but I wouldn’t repeat.

Usually Monday night is an easy one, though on this occasion I made cheesy cauliflower at Christy’s request, to go with our quorn schnitzel…


Vol a vents with quorn bolognase and veggies….


Quinoa cauliflower patties. Didn’t look good but tasted great.


Quorn Bolognase sauce (pasta for them, brown rice for me)…


Mushroom & Kale Fried Rice…. loved this…


My favourite veggie pie from a not-so-local bakery…


Homemade Mexican pizza (I wasn’t a fan but the others liked it)….


Luckily I’d made a plain cheese for Christy so I ate that….


Cheesy quorn casserole – another that was just okay.


Veggie Patty & veggies…


Quorn meatballs with angel hair pasta (didn’t like the pasta sauce I had bought)…


I’m not doing a lot of snacking these days but I try to have some things on hand for when I want a little something or to put in the girls lunches (which I  seem to be back in charge of making!!!).

Our beloved Bliss Balls….


Chia Cookies from Clean Cuisine. These are another favourite of mine and the girls.


I also made a really yummy sugar free banana bread.

Have you tried any new recipes lately? I’ve been going through my food inspiration pinterest board when I do my menu planning for the week.
