Good evening everyone, how has your day been?
Well the morning has been somewhat eventful but that is a different story for a different time.
If you read my blog yesterday I said I would get a picture of the cheese I used to make the zucchini chips, well Neil managed to get some when he went shopping today and as I was rather eager to make more ‘chips’ I turned my lunch into fish and chips the healthy way, Iv put up the rather simple recipe for the here
Today has been another glorious day, I even managed to sit out in the garden without getting hit by the washing lol, and type up my lunch.
The afternoon umm I can’t seem to remember doing anything, I sat in the garden, got very confused trying to work out the calorific value of pasta it was coming out at 15000 calories… just a little high I think…🤔, but I got there in the end, now that was a task, especially when Im not good at maths, but a bit of googling and a bit of reading and it worked out haha.
I don’t eat a great deal of pasta as it really doesn’t agree with me, but I really wanted to make a seafood pasta dish, I wanted to make a low fat, low cal version of one of my favourite dishes, and it turned out amazing, not great photos though, sorry, at only 342 calories for a white wine creamy pasta dish is quite amazing really, so I think.
I used scallops, prawns and octopus, so yummy as my grandson jack would say lol. I nearly cried though when I weighed out 50 grams of cooked pasta there was nothing there!!! and I was very tempted to add more pasta to my dish but im glad I didnt, although on the pic it doesn’t look much it was just the right amount and very filling, it will definitely be a once in a while treat with the pasta but next time im going to try it with the wok noodles as they don’t upset my tummy.
This evening has been rather quiet, I watched a bit of the big night in and went outside with my neighbours at 8pm to clap for our heroes, Im now watching Gino, Fred and Gordon absolutely love these 3 they alway bring a smile to my face lol.
I just want to point out that as i’ve now been putting my screenshots of my macros on here, I take these before I’ve had my supper, so I am eating my 1500 or close to calories and not just the few calories that it shows, so i am eating plenty.
So not a great deal to tell today, just another quiet but oh so quick day, I suppose if the time is flying by then we are closer to coming out of lockdown.
So I will bid you all goodnight I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and remember to smile, stay safe and as well is possible xoxoxo
