Adding a second sausage to my meal and a cup of mixed beans with lemon, chilli and sea salt.
Calories on 1245. That's me done! Seems like protein adds more calories than anything else. I haven't been eating enough protein lately.
I love veg and fruit and wholegrains but my son usually nicks my meat off my plate lol!

I think I should start copying other people's meals to start eating like a grown woman without food thieves for kids ;p

Sous vide chipotle chicken, and sous vide seasoned broccoli for lunch today. Definitely the way to make broccoli if you like lots of broccoli flavor. Yum! Too bad everything can't be cooked at the same temperature! But it was wonderful. I have more broccoli to use, so I will be making it that way again soon. Too bad bf isn't a huge fan of it like I am. Some day I will tell him to keep his mouth shut and eat what I put in front of him. No, I probably won't. Will just continue to make two veggies if I want something he doesn't like lol

Thanks for your efforts!
I totally agree with you, Princess!

I am not counting calories, just eliminating foods that are not good for me according to allergies and intolerances. I haven't written anything here because of that but maybe I should.

I wasn't counting calories till I tried the link PF posted. Even if you're not counting calories, I find I'm more conscious of what I eat and I'm eating healthier because of it. Maybe you should try it, no harm in trying
