I’m sure most of you are now familiar with this…
The USDA came up with a new visual aid (above) to replace the old food pyramid (below)
Isn’t it fab!?!
It’s going to take pride of place on my kitchen wall as a reminder.
This week I’m giving the Extra Easy plan a go. It’s forcing me to rejig my meal plans and think up new, exciting meals to eat. This is a good thing, I often get stuck eating the same meals, over and over again and eventually get bored. That is usually when I fall off the wagon.
Yesterday we tried a BBQ chicken recipe that was mentioned in class Thursday night. We served it with Slimming World chips and roast veg as the 1/3 free food. It was a delicious meal and I didn’t feel like I was eating a diet meal.
Thursday night we tried the KFC chicken recipe. We found it a little too salty so I’m going to be tweaking this recipe to suit my own taste…I’ll keep you posted on that progress.
Tonight I fancy trying a new recipe. Stuffed red peppers filled with rice, chicken and veg, topped with cheese from my HeA allowance…yum!
